Thank you Jacquline! I wake up every morning to the view of a wild but protected lake in my backyard. It is an ancient cypress knee swamp sprawling along what is now a golf course. The water sparkles in the morning light. An assortment of birds like herons, Pileated wood peckers and geese enjoy the refuge. This time of year the gators are deep in the mud, but we often see a few otters under our small dock. Budding trees and shrubs promise spring is near…
The beauty of nature fills our lives with peace, joy and a sure sense of of well-being…
Thanks for your great post!

Lift up your heads!
He comes, riding on the clouds,
Shining like the sun,
The whole earth shakes!
He is the King of Glory!
Hosanna in the highest!
Please return to me! I am transfixed and cold as stone.
Your breath upon my neck was molten honey,
Your horrible sweet strokes left me starving.
Return to me! Loose me from a Being of all eyes yet unseeing.
Your touch left me fair and golden. I am beautiful as a corpse,
As a subject for framing. I am gold as stone, a goddess in a painting.
Oh, my love-my one without many romantic boxes-let the wood nymphs, the fairies, the good white witches and all cupids gather around you!
Let them cast all their magic dust, pollen, leaves and spells upon you. Let Cupid prick you softly yet firmly with his arrows so that your “amas” blasts forth!
Let The Spell be cast. Let The Knowing be complete. Let my hopes be fulfilled.
Oh Grantor of Wishes for romantic feminine hearts, gather all Casters of good spells
together on this day for Lovers!
Let my lover and I go happily into the magical forest, neither dressed nor undressed,
neither hungry nor fed, neither afraid nor unafraid.
Let us go…only together completely and utterly in Love.
Burning cold in gritty ripples
