Bright Magic ~

Your intellect 
could clip the substance 
of my words 
in half 
finish off the circle 
that I thought was square 
find the answer 
where I didn't look 
reduce my mind 
to jelly made of tears 

Instead ...
you make my shadows 
into shapes 
my words to phrases
full of thought 
my tongue turns readily to wit 
until I wonder 
where my substance hid 
'til I met you.

... and he is also an amazing photographer 
photo is his ...

  16. Margie--I'm late here, sorry!

    HOWEVER....I'll just continually be in awe of one who expresses that love coming from her heart, that giving and receiving, of which I imagine are God-like.

    Never a hint of pride comes through your writings. Rather, your spirituality spreads a calmness over whoever reads these lines. You (seems to me) effortlessly write your heart--and thereby nourish others.
    Thank you!

  17. ...and OH! The photo. OUTSTANDING shot.

  18. Oh, I so love this one. Thank you!
