Paradise Found

paradise

They found each other at the end of the wilderness, dust coating their shoes, 
faces tanned and lined with age, each person carrying the knowledge gained only
through the pain of loss yet never failing to hope
for paradise after the desert, calm after the storm.

Heart Connections

heart

Eye to eye, soul to soul, light illuminating secrets within,
shy smiles exchanged upon discovery of untold treasures hidden by both,
an unmistakable connection of hearts before bodies,
reminiscent of a faint past shared in previous lives.

Sea Queen

sea

Whenever the sun began its descent below the horizon,
he knew he would find her there, looking across the sea,
her face radiant from the last rays of sunlight on the surface of the waves,
the scent of sea salt lingering on her skin as he led her from one world to the next.
