Only a Dream

There she sits.  She and her beauty.
Oblivious to everything.

Playful thoughts,
Dreamy eyes,
A smile on her lips.

It's a perfect moment.
Suspended in time
By fragile, glimmering threads.

Untouched, just breathing.
 Her feelings like a shawl, wrap around her shoulders.

This is a day like no other,
Dream big!
Because just like the others, this too will end...

  4. Yes, I love those moments but they do end. I always hope, though, and, it has always been so, that they do come again. Sometimes, there's an almighty stretch of time between them but, so far, the moment has always come again. Phew!

    Alina, once again, you've crawled into my heart and mind and put words to it. HOW do you do that?! =]

    Love, Me

    P.S. I'm in an interesting conundrum. I have an absolute avalanche of lovely things to blog about this week. I can't wait to answer your questions. I've already thought some through a bit but, every time I start a post, it gets so long .... Well, I'm trying to just say *casually* (=}), "...and speaking of lovely things... I got an award..." I'll get there. LOL is the thing.
