Some examples of descriptive elegance:

Six ruby-red roses immersed in cellophane and curls of ribbon

a chipped cream jug

A good story, and well told

What a neat story, well written, descriptive, and one that we all hope will be true when we've been married that long. :)

This was very touching. Your descriptions of the couple were perfect.
I loved it! It's always nice to see elderly people in love.

An engaging story filled with nice imagery. It pulled me in and held me to the end.
This is a very sweet story with excellent descriptive writing.

Very nice. Your descriptive words had me in the diner watching everything unfold. You portrayed true love beautifully.

Great descriptions, right down to the ambience of the diner. Very well written!
Beautiful story. I'm teary-eyed and that's hard to do. I like the way you used it as an example for your own marriage. A winner either way.

This should be a timeless classic. I loved your descriptions, when they were holding hands, the expressions on their faces seeing the Roses and the album. Very well written and very much enjoyed! ^_^

This I liked. I mean, I really enjoyed. Classic writing, memorable lines, relaxing tone and voice.
Your writing, reminds of a man who just sits down to play the piano for the joy of playing. Eyes closed, a smile and the just stops and goes and pours a glass of iced tea and plants a flower. Simple and grand. God bless.
