girl and sunset

It was not the
Fire of your kiss,
The warmth
Of your eyes,
The beauty
Of your words,
Or the touch
Of your skin.
It was the
Fire in your soul,
The warmth
Of your heart,
And the beauty
of your spirit,
That drew me in.

A bright flame
As it dies
It’s silent
Yet, thoughts
Of you
My darkest

dancing girl

She is a synergy
Of moth and flame
Dancing away the
Lust of demons
With courage and grace
Her benevolence an
Intoxicating fragrance
Of smoke and mirrors

The new Lorde single “Green Light” is a joyous anthem of healing and redemption. I’ve had it on repeat all day! – Lola 🌺



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

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.

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 🌺
