A Precious Gift

What a wonderful display of colour I witnessed yesterday morning as the sun caught a raindrop dangling in the ivy! Unfortunately I was only able to capture these two colours on camera before the sun went behind the clouds :) Natures beautiful diamond! A precious gift!

Sleeping Beauty :) So peaceful :)  Don't have many opportunities like this to take pictures:)
He/She is a bit camera shy :)

                                                    Not her and that damn camera again!

                                                              Go Away Leave Me Alone!

                                                       Get that thing outta my face!

Gosh, and I thought I wasn't a morning person:)

A Fowl Day!

Which ever way the wind blows it doesn't really matter as long as you have somewhere to bury your head. Some of them had wings others couldn't bear it but buried their heads anyway in a pile of logs. (Bear with a sore head on a fowl day?)
Guinea Fowl, Owl, and Bear on a very, very windy day.

i bear you in my heart
with unwept tears
like the rose who
suffers her thorns
but weeps at dawn
i bear within my heart
a painful secret

Transient Rapture

i wait for you to raise your innocent head
i want to touch your silky skin, but instead,
in my hand i cup your satin face, so fragile,
i await your transition, so pure, so volatile
before my eager eyes you begin to undress
stunning me
your vulnerability leaving me breathless

Fools Paradise

secrets slip
through parted lips
stolen words
while love unfurls
with heaving breast
like waves that crest
a tempestuous ocean

i know this heaven
this fools paradise
i have seen it in
your wanton eyes
still i cannot resist
so i close my eyes
and savour your kiss

Lover's Kisses

luscious as a lover's kiss
a sweet temptation

The Colour Of Love

hearts have grown
cold as stone
forgotten is
the yellow
of the sun

turbulent waters
swirl and sweep
a vortex
of sorrow
too dark and
too deep
to reflect it

because love
the colour

the yellow of
the sun
will make
it's way
through the
greyest day
through dark
through sorrow

the yellow
of the sun
will rise
through the
cracks in
the stone

because love
the colour
by tomorrow
the yellow
of the sun
will have grown

Theatre of the Absurd

The head/face in this image is a photograph of a reflection that appeared on the wall. Don't ask me to explain it - I can't - but there has to be a logical explanation for it I just haven't found it yet. Anyways, it freaked me out so I paired it up with an image of the moon ( it looks as though it belongs there).

just a face
in the crowd
of a meaningless
midst arcane
of abstruse
and tired
just an
in the theatre
of the absurd

Bumble Bee

Bumble bees, I think, are the teddy bears of the bee family :) They are so fuzzy :)

sip with velvet tongue
sweet harvest of honeyed sun
a toast to summer

Will you Hold my Hand

i'm lost without you
when all my dreams desert me
will you hold my hand
