Contrast – Chalk n Cheese

Todays Daily Prompt: Contrast


What do I say ? Where do I begin?

As into today’s Daily Post I log in….


I love the late, late night, he’s into early morning

I love an evening at home, he loves his partying!

I love visiting the past, all the sugar and the spice

He loves remembering only the part that’s nice!


I love shopping and malls – My idea of weekend fun,

Alas – To him, its akin holding to his head, a gun!

I love guides, books n Knick knacks at a popular spot

A waste, says he –  will you ever open all that you got?


My cupboard overflowing, yet I have “no clothes to wear”

By his comfy old shirts and suits, he will always swear! 

Save for a rainy day, says me, invest and look to the future,

Live for the present, says he, the future’s not ours to nurture!


I make and break and remake – “Flexible” decisions are my hallmark

While, once taken, they’re “His” to stand by, right or wrong, light or dark!

Together we have traveled more than half my life,

The wind beneath my wings, to whom, I am a wife!


Mars N Venus, Chalk and cheese – we may well be

But for the life and family we have thankful I’ll ever be!

Green is togetherness
Green is togetherness

    Come now, it’s in men’s genes to avoid the word ‘shopping’ we are just wired that way 😉

    Today I am reading all responses before I write mine. Reason got late in the party and not able to weave my thoughts. Your sweetest response to the prompt said it all. Very touching and well written. Knowing you & Gen. for so many years, watching you both closely makes it more enjoyable to read 🙂

    Awwh this is as cute as it can get ! ❤ A Successful marriage is never about being similar in interests but it's about understanding and accepting each other's differences and loving each other despite everything. Wonderful post ! 🙂
