Hand in hand we walked back to our apartment......sat around to tempt
ourselves with some refreshments. After some while of sweet nothings
my wife declared,  "I'm a little tired going over the hills just now.I'm
taking a rest in the bedroom!" She had unwittingly given me a respite or
perhaps it was intentional. While sitting at the beach upon our descent
I had remarked how inspirational was the sea.  The breeze and the slow
sounding waves lashing against the rocks with consistent rhythm. I was
more of thinking aloud then. It was a natural relief for a perceived writer's
block which hounded me the whole of the night before. Or perhaps she
chose to give me some quiet moments to recover my stifled creative self.
How considerate of my loving wife. It must invariably be intentional!

Nature goes about
Man tormented mentally
Heaven-sent loved one

  1. A wife is a pearl of great price when she is so understanding...and at other times too!

  2. A touching moment beautifully captured - i particularly enjoyed the parting poem

  3. Your wife sounds like a wonderful, considerate person.
    Wonderful write Hank.

  4. A little time to get the writer's block away, considerate indeed at your bay

  5. Hi, Hank. Very nice haibun. You are two very lucky people to have each other. Nice to be back in your company.
