Pensive is an upper-class word that means reflective
another way to say that you are introspective
or maybe a bit ruminative
Whatever stokes your senses to be cogitative
it’s all good to be perceptive
though some prefer to call it meditative.
Some writers love to use grandiose words like stamp duty
a pensive man they would describe as broody
which makes him sound more intense than moody
…and excuses his behaviour that might be kooky
especially in those romantic books that are juicy
or those paranormal stories that tend to be spooky
Of late I have been a bit pensive
a gamut of thoughts run through my head making me restive
I need to sort them and get progressive.

Pensive, The Daily Post Prompt
When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.
I hear you in my thoughts…
Your words of wisdom,
of love and encouragement…
They are etched upon my soul.
They keep me warm.
