Luminosity

stars-in-the-sky

Our memories
Blanket our minds
Like millions of stars
In the evening sky
Their luminous beauty
Made visible by the
Direction of our gaze
And their reflection
Upon our hearts

 

“I have loved the stars to fondly to be fearful of the night.” – Galileo

Beguiled

A spray of saltwater
Touches her lips,
It’s taste familiar
And Intoxicating.
The waves
Of the ocean
Gently caress
Her limbs,
As balmy breezes
Whisper erotic
Thoughts upon
Her skin. 

 

“I’m restless, things are calling me away.  My hair is being pulled by the stars again.” – Anais Nin

Crimson – Wordless Wednesday

~My good friend Dave and I both have a passion for nature photography and for years have been sharing our pictures online.  Last year he relocated to Portland and I was in awe of the photographs he took of the crimson clover that grows there in springtime.  The gorgeous Mt. St. Helens is in the background.  Enjoy!  Spring is just 55 days away! – Lola 🌺

hope

Your light
Of hope
Shone bright
On a weary
World
And made
Us believe
Again
