Within this heart of delicate measures-
the weight of gloomy loneliness,
is suspended abreast the illusion of desire…
I traveled alone to this cavern of compassion;
no companion, to welcome me from journeys past.
And when I gaze up at the reality;
I cling to no fears of diversions unknown.
For at long last, I see you my love,
though never had you appeared to me before.
Or perhaps, it was I, who was never really there…
The scars that I bear upon my heart,
became the legend of truest loves recollection.
Yet here, in this my peaceful sanctuary;
I await your arrival-
smiling in the warmth of this glorious beginning;
for the daybreak over our dreams,
I wait in wonder,

I have to extend a huge Thank You to Vilhjálmur Ingi Vilhjálmsson of Reykjavík, Iceland, for lending me his wonderful image “Solitude” to combine with my work. Villi, I think this is beautiful and I appreciate your willingness to work together.
