breezy evening
our young love
succumbs to
the scent of bay leaf trees
lingering in our first kiss

lost in their raptour
bay leaf trees; the scent of
our first kiss

blog hopping today at
Carpe Diem Tokubetsudesu #55 Jen (Blog It Or Lose It)

warming in my palm –
a summer plum
plucked by the storm

you cannot hide
the want in your eyes –
easily deciphered –
released touch by touch
my mystery is much deeper

a voice explains -
rapt attention of children
to buds of lotus
learning along the trek
around the still murky pond

a stillness ensues
the roll of lotus leaves
in a murky pond

spirit grows -
from the bottom of the pond
into the light
the Lotus reaches from the deep -

so utterly beautiful and loving and my feelings expressed by you and others, yet I can never quite seem to find those lovely feelings of love you write about, I remain unable to write how I feel, but If I could hug you dear Gillena you would translate it into words, wonderful you
