Spending Time Wisely

I spent most of the day with one of my favorite people. I am blessed and privileged to have her in my life. 

I appreciate our laughter, authentic conversations and the joy that is shared between us. We honor each other and our friendship. I thank God for putting her in my life.

Are there people who add to your life by bringing truth, compassion and honesty? Are there people in your life that you cherish and love?

Why I Choose Love

One of the reasons I chose the name of my blog to be “Exposed Loving” is because I wanted to expose my thoughts, life and feelings as they relate to loving. 

Over the years my definition of love has changed and thus how and when I love has also changed. 

Love is the essence of who I am. Loving is necessary in my life.

Love bridges the gap between people no matter their ethnic background, race, socioeconomic background, religion, etc.

How do you feel about love and loving or what are your thoughts on the topic?

Old Fashioned Wooing Indeed

In some ways I am old fashioned desiring to court the person of my dreams but it would seem they do not know it.


I write poetry to adorn them with my words and see them fly high like a bird but only if my words could show them my heart where it starts and never departs.


Every missed kiss equals missed opportunities to conveying where my heart has been and what it will always say.


Love a splendid state could almost stop one from truth seeing but love makes a way to navigate and sway from what’s to good to be true like you.

Sensuality of the Senses

What if a person treated touch as a precious action only to be indulged when the language of “in love” is spoken, heard and received.

What if looking into someone’s eyes past the point of a friendly gesture would be allowed only to get the attention of someone you want to know much deeper than surface, much longer than a lifetime.

What if tasting was seen as a sacred feast only to be had with the one who has captured your heart for eternity.

What if hearing the voice of the one you love was like a serenade, an offering given to you reminding you of a warm summer night experiencing the cool sprinkling of a beautiful fountain.


What if the fragrance of someone caught your attention devastating your senses with the fresh scent of baked cookies,

bacon, grits and eggs cooked to perfection; they smell like home.


Why not save the sensuality of the senses for the one who knows more about you than those who were the closest to you, that person makes you smile from your eyes to your cheeks and holds you through every hard time and every exuberant celebration.
