As the sunset races across the lush lawn, he knows the time will soon come when he will hold her in his arms

A gentle breeze whispers through the cypress trees, as he sets the dinner table with hopes she is pleased
Two luminous crystal glasses glow with candlelight
an elegant bottle of red casts a long shadow onto the white…
Cloth he has smoothed with his calloused hands, and napkins folded into a simple fan
The silver gleams on the table, and the plates are set with perfection
for this is his expertise, the art of sensual seduction
A blue velvet pouch rests beside the ivory plate, a silver ring he prays will seal their destined fate
The notes of French music fills the night air, with words of lost love,
J’attendrai, as he waits but he hopes not forever…
for tonight is the night he intends to conquer the woman of his dreams

  1. Makes me wonder if he is sincere, so well he has planned. But then again, my husband planned nothing when he asked me to marry him so who can tell? I do not have sound on my computer.

  2. This is sweet romantic and alluring. My favourite image is the precise care of those” calloused hands ” fixing the table just right

    Happy Sunday

    Much love…
