After I Saw Your Face........ by 

I long for you to be here to sup with me
to gather round my table
to hold my hand
so I can later dream
Moment by moment
I find pleasure in your gaze
reaching out to hold on to your face with my mind
for the long weeks ahead
Linger with me through the night
finding a stillness of breath among the joy
Oh, everlasting submissive memory.
Stay awhile for the sequence repeats
as the fading is no longer an issue
as life’s awakening came
after I saw your face.


I have been accused of being a romantic…. oh yes…. that would be me….. and Valentines Day makes me very happy!!! The anticipation of all the flowers and candy and cards that are given out on this day just makes me smile…. Lots of effort goes into making special relationships…. and it is so worth it!!!!
My wish for all my RB friends is to enjoy your days…. make every day a Valentines day in your heart. Hugs are a commodity that keeps on giving…. so give…… and receive right back!!!!
Much love to my dear friends,
aka Jazzy

The art of collecting the interesting and intriguing things of this world and bringing excitement of the possibility of “freezing” that moment in time are the reasons that my eyes have broadened to look under and over and in between the winds of the nights and the lights of the days…… Come walk beside me and we can be the “sunshine” for this season in time……….. just walk beside me…………..

    Brenda…Great still life…Has a painting feel to it…Almost old fashioned and yet modern too…A really appealing composition with great colors. Of course it compliments your poem. I hope that you are keeping all those written words safe so that you can put them in a book one day…Perhaps with the images. Now I am wondering if you are already doing that…I hope so…

  • Oh my Liz…. your comment makes me blush….. it’s all about that which forms inside and needs to be “put on paper” so to speak…. Thank you for the gentle encouraging that you do…. it makes me appreciate what I love to write and photograph…..
    See you in the morning!!!!
