Don't forget to kis(s) - A Practical Guide to Some of Life's Top things - A Digestive Special (part 4 of 10)

Hey, you know these Sunday specials that you are writing?

Do you mean the “A practical guide to some of the Top ten things to do in a lifetime”, that constitute a series of specials from The Digestive, inspired by a challenge laid down by Mary a few weeks back and which purport to offer a reminder about things you might forget to do during a lifetime?




Yes - I was answering your first question.

Ah -....... well, they’re a bit long.

You would like something shorter?


Ok. Keep It Simple.


Er, that’s it.


NUMBER FOUR..........K.I.S.

no 3
no 2
no 1

A longer answer to your shorter number four --

Poem by

e.e. cummings

since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;
wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don't cry
--the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids' flutter which says

we are for each other: then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life's not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis

As ee says -- KISSES ARE A BETTER FATE THAN WISDOM. Thanks for adding it to your list.

You fooled me again. I must be getting dimmer with old age. You on the other hand are getting sharper.


Got it.
