  JEWELED 


Thousand sunsets treasured in my heart

Thousand stories of eternal love and passion

Darling gems, exotic birds

Tender leaves and gentile lilies
Weaved into an endless arabesque
In my dream arrive with blissful glory.

Graciously the light is dancing

Warming up my heart and senses.



  WOODSY 


In somber, quiet woods, late autumn afternoons

The shadows fall in inky blue and misty green

Declining sun reflects in murky waters
Somewhat surreal and very much in watercolor

And only sudden pops of color
Reveal what lies beneath the frozen leaves

A reminisce of lasting beauty
Contained in fragile filigree of gentile flowers
