My Dear Friend Gina/Singledust has been writing a beautiful, delicate and romantic series of poems entitled “Sweet Whispers” which I want to highly recommend to you. Please investigate this series and Her other works!
Gina and I have previously collaborated on a little “Duet” called “Allie’s Song for Noah“. Her poem “Let Me” spoke to my heart and I brashly interlaced some of my words at the end of her lines which ended up in our posts as, “Allie’s Song For Noah”. This was a little imaginative writing as a take off on a supposed alternate ending to “The Notebook”. Gina was generous and gracious enough to grant permission to post that “duet” as a collaboration.
After reading Gina’s “Sweet Whispers #8” I felt I needed to warn her that her poem was whispering to my heart. So I was once again inspired to continue our little collaboration on another “Duet” in “The Notebook” vein.
After reading “Sweet Whispers #8” I envisioned the scene from the movie where Allie and Noah have just finished having made love for the first time since seeing each other again and she turns to him and laughingly says in a stunned and amazed tone, “So, this is what I have been missing all this time?” And then she attempts, successfully, to entice him into – “MORE”.
Waking up the next morning Noah has left a little trail for her to follow to the studio he built for her. Overcome with joy to the point of tears Allie finds a piece of paper and starts writing a little note to Noah. After finishing the note Allie wipes away the tears and with an impish grin she tucks the note away in the pocket of Noah’s robe and then hides it in the night stand next to his bed.
So, the next time she makes love with Noah (I hope you Ladies are envisioning Ryan Gosling) and he is all “spent” and begging off, she reaches into the night stand and pulls out her note to him. She then hands her note to Noah and tells him to read it out loud to her. As he reads out loud to her she follows the instructions.
My interlacing is followed by the commas.
Allie’s Note To Noah
By Gina Gallyot and Charles Robert Lindholm
Please read this out loud to me
when I give this to you!
So I can follow the instructions!
Feather light kisses, I place on His skin
Gentle sweet words, as I ask Him, again?
Misty morning whispers, as I beg in His ear
Peace afterwards, as we drift on the clouds
With All My Love,

I hope everyone one finds the love that Allie and Noah had!!
