    Wonderful, Justine, a beautiful moment you described perfectly in a classical haiku…wow!! love it. Now if I add 2 lines of not more than 7 syllables it would a renga…we can have a tan renga party. Georgia and Jen do it often and I’ve done it a few times with Georgia…so in future if I just respond with 2 lines like that, your haiku inspired me to continue:)

    Lips brush melting skin
    Seconds pass though time stands still
    Only my heart beats

    sea breeze leaves me trembling
    I press against you closer.

    My kids’ laughter makes time stand still. I wish to freeze time when that happens. 🙂

    Beautiful words, Justine.

    Love has been the only thing that has made time stand still for me. And it still does sometimes 🙂

            Have a great Mother’s Day, Justine.

            I’m in the UK as well but won’t be able to see my mum on Sunday. I’ve sent her a card and a Marks & Spencer voucher though, so she can treat herself.

        Well I was thinking about you. My daughter is working for internal medicine and she was telling me that one of her patients benefits from pain management and I am happy to hear you are trying this! I’m all for what works! It’s frustrating! My sister-in-law is doing massage therapy as well! She says it is really helping her! I was thinking about you! I hope they find a cure for that one day! XXX

    This is lovely – I like how its shortness means that ‘seconds’ is a literal description of the poem also
