Candle

Burn a candle in your window,

I’ll be there before the dawn, 

you’ll know I love you darlin’,

I’ve been yours all along.

Run a bath with honeyed jasmine,

tell your story to my soul,

I’ll open my heart gladly,

I’ve been yours all along.

CHESS SURVEYING HER TERRITORY

Chess:

This darling bear was photographed by Wayne of tofinophotography.wordpress.com in Gunner Inlet, Tofino, British Columbia. Wayne is very familiar with the bears he photographs and spends long hours letting the bears accustom themselves to him. In this shot, the bear even stops and turns sideways to look at him.
And yes, this beautiful she bear “bears” my name but any resemblance between her rump and mine is purely coincidental ;)
Check out Wayne’s blog for more beautiful nature and wildlife photos.

Dance

Tipsy with joy,

made bold by wine,

adrift in lush emerald lea,

souls asway in gentle rain.

Devotion

Romeo chose Juliet,

sweet Juliet gave her soul,

they mated in the ancient way,

in faith, two hearts, one beat.

Meadow

Meadow

Meet me in the sweet new grass,

take my hand and soothe me,

lay me down on soft wild flower,

then speak your heart in tender voice,

and I will unveil mine.
