Oh Linda,every thing about you is so romantic, a wish of dainty lace on an angry green sea..................

I haven't given poetry much of a try...mostly I write/illustrate short stories; and those are mostly directed at children. So here goes.. A Wish of dainty lace on an angry green sea, of August crimson berries dotting the Mountain Ash. A crisp morning breeze and the chilling, tingling, crinkling of the melting brook. Lemon drop suns pinned upon tangerine skies. The salt drenched scent of kelp washed in sweeping waves onto bleached sands. Tender coiled ferns and emerald moss carpeting luxuriously the forest floor. Flora in the wake of a summer shower....the heady cologne. Powdery fragile golden butterflies touching, tickling lavender clover, and charcoal silhouettes of young poplars against a feverish etchings on dusky silk. Away with the stress of the day! Roses and lilacs, love and for a weary brow. 2008
