A Colourful Past

Once vibrant and fresh
so colourful and perfect
Now time has passed
Yet there is still something there
A passage in time
has unvieled another layer
one of  deep beauty and experience.

Life Shadow

A Frienship Catus
behind a drape on a very humid day
We had the windows shut and the drapes drawn
in hopes of a comfortable sleep
31 celcius with humidity..41!

Under an Azure Sky

Under that azure sky
I feel comfort
laying on my back, with no cares
only for that minute.
escaping life...a life that just
won't let go.
So you get up, dust yourself off
and go back at it
Thats what we do!

Love is a Rose

Love is a rose
but you better not pick it
it only grows when it's on the vine.
A handful of thorns and
you'll know you've missed it
You lose your love
when you say the word "mine".

~Neil Young
