Believe me…I am thrilled that May arrived with sunshine and warmer temperatures!  After inches upon inches of rain the past two days the sunshine is a welcome blessing!  I hope the sun warms your heart and soul today!

Perfect Happiness

Perfect Happiness

Does it exist,

That thought

Of

Perfect bliss?

When two come together

And create

Perfect happiness?

Yes,

If,

Each is willing

To embrace

The differences

And toast to

The times,

Yet undefined.

Wishing you much happiness throughout the week!

The titles of the photographs of red and white carnations are based on the meaning of red, white, and striped carnations in the Victorian Language of Flowers.  I took the liberty to combine meanings and alter them a bit to ensure that the titles conveyed my vision and intention of each image.

 If you recall from pervious posts, the Gerber daisy represents cheer in the language of flowers, thus the titles of the images posted this evening.  


Christmas Cactus Series – 2013 (My Heart Burns with Love)

Burning Love

My Heart Burns with Love

The burning,

The yearning,

My heart is full of love for you.

You’ll never know the depth,

It cannot be seen.

Actions may at times lead you to believe you know,

But,

Life’s ebb and flow cause you to blink,

And in that instance your mind questions

My devotion to our link.

My love, like art,

Is timeless,

And priceless.

It will forever be.

As the touch of a feather

Lingers on your skin,

So too, will my love endure

A gentle breeze,

A cajoling force,

The unthinkable.

Oh the burning,

The yearning,

My heart is full of love for you.

Note:  In the Victorian language of flowers cactus flowers represent “endurance” and “my heart burns for you”.  The poem above was written with the aforementioned meanings in mind. Notice the red heart in the center of the bottom petal….I love the little miracles of nature!

Find Peace in Patience

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Intertwined

Two

came

together

by

chance

and

began

to

dance.

Their

hearts

began

to

flutter.

Their

limbs

in

moments

puttered.

While

the

music

played

Their

bodies

swayed.

Just

as

love

is

blind

Their

souls

intertwined.
