Lucidity Male (61) from Cumbria

Have done all the usual things, wrestled crocodiles, cycled backwards down Everest, discovered a cure for an unkown disease and taught Plato philosophy.

The shape of a kiss

brings to mind, the subtle
shape shifting sensations
of the transiently blind.

The taste of a kiss,
dream filled bliss.
Infinite and effortless,

breathless, heart stopping,
stomach shocking.
A world rocking trip

where lips meet lips
in a silent wish. Slip
sliding, stopping time.

Choose your shape and shine.

Hay rolled, sun drenched,
A heart’s desire quenched.

Fire and rain, rain and fire.

Snow

This is probably my fav poem

Snow

The room was suddenly rich and the great bay window was
Spawning snow and pink roses against it
Soundlessly collateral and incompatible:
World is suddener than we fancy it.

World is crazier and more of it than we think,
Incorrigbly plural. I peel and portion
A tangerine and spit the pips and feel
The drunkeness of things being various.

And the fire flames with a bubbling sound for world
Is more spiteful and gay than one supposes –
On the tongue on the eyes on the ears in the palm of one’s
hands –
There is more than glass between the snow and the huge
roses.

Louis MacNiece

"But what if the point of living isn't to be placid and happy and untouched by the world, but to be deeply, painfully sensitive to it, to see its cruelty and savagery for what they are, and accept all this as readily as we accept beauty? To feel the force of everything we see around us? To be touched by it,moved by it, hurt by it even, but not to be indifferent to it?" - John Simpson, news journalist.

Even though my profile says I have no children I do have a step son, 25 now, from my marriage, who's still very much a part of my life. I spent nine years in the RAF, fourteen years running my own business, now working for the public sector gets in the way of my reading and thinking and writing.




So should I wax lyrical about the inner essence of the lady of my dreams.

Or should I just tell the truth, that I'd like a woman who was sexy, with curves in all the right places who loved cats, books and all things cultured and hated football.LOL

I'll leave it up to you to decide. Oh and of course the wish list is just that, I am far from perfect so cannot expect it (and I'm sure would not want it) in return.

Hobbies and interests icon My hobbies and interests

Cooking I do enjoy it but make no claim to proficiency.
Shopping I shop because I have to, mostly online apart from fresh food which I always buy from local suppliers who buy from local producers. Secondhand bookshops are a different matter!
DIY Can do the painting and decorating bit but don't expect me to build anything.
Housework Has to be done and I keep it reasonable but please don't bring white gloves.
Dining out Yes enjoy eating out. But prefer restaurants where the food is cooked from fresh. Will not eat in Mac's etc.
Movies Don't go as much as I'd like to. Prefer films with a good story to lots of explosions.
Theatre Again don't go as much I'd like to though do have an excellent theatre about twenty minutes away.
Music An eclectic taste in music, too many to list.
Gigs Yep love live music. This year so far have tickets booked for Peter Gabriel and Joan Armatrading.
Pubs Hardly touch alcohol these days.
Clubbing No not into clubbing.
Newspapers and magazines Newspapers - reiteration and speculation!
Magazines - Geographical, Songlines.
Books Read a lot, fiction, travel, biog, history, science etc
TV Like good dramas and documentaries
Watching sport Not into sport watching tho always watch Wimbledon and occasionally the six nations rugby.
Playing sport Walking mostly these days, tho hoping to get back to cycling soon.
Hobbies see start of profile

Hopes and dreams icon My hopes and dreams

In ten years I see myself wiser
Who would I invite to a dinner party? John Lennon, Nelson Mandella, Richard Dawkins
My ideal date Ask me out and I'll let you know.
What would I never, ever give up? Losing our memories seems frightening to me. The loss of who we are. So I'll try and hang onto that for as long as I can.
If I had to give a speech on a subject I was passionate about ... Inhumanity
If I could visit anywhere in the world at any time in history Too many places and times.
If I had a million pounds to give to charity I'd like to spread that money around, animal, childrens education, torture victims, homelessness...................
My "and finally" section ... Me
Born screaming small into this world-
Living I am
occupational therapy twixt birth and death
What was I before?
What will I be next?
What am I now?
Cruel answer carried in the jesting mind of a careless God.
I will not bend and grovel
when I die. If he says my sins are myriad
I will ask why He made me so imperfect
and He will say "my chisels were blunt"
I will say "Then why did you make so many of me?"
