    I can’t help but trying to filling the black with 3 syllable names….yes yes yes I did google….

    • That’s worth a try. Though 3 syllables and six letters: I Imagine the quest could be near endless. The amount of names in this world is almost unbelievable, and with many more being created each year. Plus, each name has many spelling variants and pronunciation differences. That’s amazing you even undertook the challenge, says much about your determination, I think. And if this were Hangman (the word guessing game), I believe you’d get it pretty soon. Thanks for playing a long. I sure would’ve been interested to see your guesses. Stay safe!

    This reminds me of a story I read awhile back about a discovery in Egypt where archaeologists found a love poem in an old well dating back a couple of thousands years ago. It’s similar to your lovely poem and the translated poem ended with the writer saying to his/her love ‘ Could I see you with every glance, It would be better for me than to eat or drink’.

    • That’s a cool story. Thanks for sharing it and reading. And I think its true: when you find a true love, a “big love”, that connection kinda becomes medicine for your body, nourishment for your soul.

    Oh! My! Fantastic, Benjamin. You do it in style eh?? Wonderful. Just dying to meet this femme fatale. She must be quite something to have kept you on your toes. Atta boy!!!!

    • Thanks. She’s some kind of special. Very uncommon and rare in my opinion. However, I might be a tad bit partial. Though still: I think the aura of her presence is in need of universal acclaim.

    Intrigue for the reader, a secret message for your love and the joy of creating for you. Great combination Ben, you clever thing πŸ‘

    • Thanks so much, Secrets. There’s something to a language that only lovers can share: each couple I believe have their own. Thanks again. Very much appreciate your thoughts and support.
