Written Words Never Die
Historical fiction – India
Wow….so descriptive and passionate….
Something came over me and I wrote this quickly before the thought disappeared.
Glad that many liked it, Eric 🙂
Simply beautiful, Eric!
Thank you George.
The way you effortlessly take us from start to end, it reminds us all that something that is so often spoken of so carelessly really is a treasure and that something handled so harshly truly is a gem. Thank you.
Very well said – what we perceive is a reflection of our values more than the value of that we see.
This is the word that came to mind after reading this Eric!! 🙂
Well, that is a wonderful compliment dear – thank you, Eric 🙂
You’re welcome Eric 🙂
As all the others here have intimated, you have a wonderful talent. Thank you for sharing it!
Thank you for thinking so. It is my pleasure.
Eternally straddling love helps understand not just the woman within the the man as well. I love this.
What you say is very true – as it takes two to love. Good thought 🙂

Beautiful post, Eric. I have to say, the imagery is wonderful…..very descriptive. Actually, I’m a lil jealous of her. I’d love to be her…..or have others see me as you see her. Gorgeous words.
In our private world of dreams, we can be anything and anyone we want. The right one will come along and see you as others see her – I wish this for you. Eric 🙂
Eric your poetry is outstanding. I know I haven’t stopped and said it but when I read it I am carried away into it. I could feel my feet being washed. Your imagery is always drawing me in. I forgot for a moment it wasn’t me , lol. but then you talked about the anklets and I had to remind myself again it wasn’t me, mine isn’t ruby or pearls, oh yes it isn’t me there,lol! I love poetry and yours is beautiful. Thank you for sharing again such beautiful words!
This is such a lovely comment, Linda – to be able to immerse in a world of beauty, love and peace. Glad that my words provided a window to this special world for you.
In ancient India, the anklets were made from gold tubes formed into rings. They did not encrust the pearls and rubies outside. Rather, the jewels were slipped into the hollow. Each type of jewel emitted different sounds. When the woman walked, music followed her steps. One had to break the anklet to see the jewels within. However, experts could tell simply from the sound. Just a snippet…

Eric, you have transported me right into “A Thousand and One Nights” with this post. I almost felt virginal again reading it!
Ah, what wonderful memories Granbee. Once in a while, we all can do with some escapism.
