Rg ...... yes, it is a very fiery picture -- yet, so elegant and soft  :angel:

Dutch ..... take your time and post for any of the pictures past.  There's no time frame on any of them.




Here's my attempt at the latest picture .....


Translucent

Alive with the breeze
one and the same,
we are bound together
no fortune, no fame.

Traveling with ease
music from the heart,
softly it speaks
this gift, this art.

Fragile is the tune
adrift as it sends,
peace from the soul
from deep, from within.

With the rise of the moon
to the dawning of light,
listen for the flutter
in harmony, in flight.

Translucent is the choice
dividing sky and earth,
let the music enrich us
as one race, as one worth.

Together as a voice
a message we'll send,
of our spirit of love
on the wings, on the wind.

your overture flows over my skin
making melodies of love
culminating in
a dirge of despair -
                                sad finale

dark clouds overhead
from heavy burdens bloated
look a bit closer

see the sun dancing
a promise of healing rain
shimmering future
I felt it shelter to speak to you  ~Emily Dickinson

His light radiates from the heavens
Touching the Earth with energy
Ensuring life everlasting
Forever illuminating me.

Path of the Son

beams to help guide you
guide your way home

beams to enlighten
enlighten your soul

seeking the strength
the strength of His love

seeking the path
the path of the dove

enriched by the sun
the sun in a shroud

enriched in His spirit
His spirit in the clouds
