Independence Day

rubies, sapphires and pearls
the water emerald
impatient to find the words
let me fall into
the bed of pink roses
Instead i dive into
the crystal clear
i swim hard to ignore the cold
squatting on the shore
my arms around my knees
skin tingling

all i wish to do is plunge
and be total stillness
to receive it all
gemstones everywhere every single day

This is a tremendous post, such a big heart. I love the striping on that dragonfly, and how your Mendenhall just bursts out of the frozen winter into the summer.

hele mooie orchidee, Jozien
de natuur is nu denk ik op zijn mooist bij jou
