Never ask a Caterpillar for advice... or me...

Caterpillar: Ah, Alice, you've returned...

Caterpillar: Become whole again. I need to rest. 
You need to regain your human size. 
Grow up, Alice. Embrace the truth.

I was having what I thought a pleasant conversation with a friend,when in mid-sentence her demeanor changed -- she leaned into the table and her voice lowering -- "have a question to ask you?"  "I need your opinion - on an very important matter?"

This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. -- I hardly know, what to respond to my dear friend with a great deal of trepidation --- 
"Oh says, I ?" thinking she knows  better then to ask me for my advice..
I try to relax and appear interested for her but my mind was racing thinking other thoughts -- more specifically on how to avoid this  conversation.  
My partner and I have lost touch with one another,  you know the kind I mean..Just vulgar politeness between us.

Sliding on slopes of love
All that is real 
Is rustling  with passion

My man lost that loving feeling between us. Now what shall I do?


Each day is a gift
                                                                                                honor it 
                                                                                                             live fully in the moment

My love has found another much younger than I.  How do I compete with that?

Bubbles passing by... 

                                                                                                        Pop! one, two, three...

                                                                                                             C'est la vie, mon amour.

Do you think I should buy a sexy dress?  

Laughing and dancing
With no music
In a watered colored sky!

Friend : 
Do you think he will come back to me?

The Ecstasy of him
lying beside me

Now just one.

 How do you mend a broken heart?

Chocolate covered lips
Dripping chins
with fudge surprise

How do I get over him?

 Dagonfly lands on me
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    a soundless whisper 
                                                                                                                               dare to dance

                                                                                                                                                Friend:Thank you dear friend that was  helpful --- now do you think I should buy that new sexy dress

Me: No   ---you haven't heard a word I said -- go now and ....

Pick strawberries
                                                                                                          while naked
                                                                                                                    in the pouring rain

She walked alone
                                                                                                                      on a fragrant path
                                                                                                                       under a perfumed sky
