Mist over water,
Sunlight on trees,
Sparkling as gems in the light...
Haze on blue mountains,
The brook running free,
Lifting my Soul to the sky.
Kisses by starlight,
Breeze blowing soft,
Cold gleam of water on skin...
Warm lips draw music
From body and soul,
Igniting Love's embers within.
Ladybird fair, you appeared on my page
I could see at a glance you were not from a cage
Your colors struck me as rather spectacular
Walking on words to use the vernacular
Over the page and over my hand
The way you moved seemed so grand
A circuit, then down, you moved with such grace
This interlude was one of a pace
But that's ok, you don't belong
On pages, hands and words of song
You live on green and grassy blade
But thank you for this pleasant parade
dusting the tender bud
softly, shyly, lifting her face
as the warm breeze coaxes her delicate petal
sweetly, coyly, soft petals unfurl
trustingly meeting the
gentle kiss of
