Right beyond the path,
the one on the right,
there is… the little one.
The one that only
dreamers know of.
The little path that leads
to the wood
and to magical places
where hands are held
and hugs are given freely…
and felt warmly.

There beyond is a corner
where birds and cats
are best of friends.
where kindred souls
talk from the heart,
sometimes without words
as an understanding
in joy is felt through eyes,
and a touch,
and a linger.

As the sun dips into
the water’s far edge,
there, on a balcony of
vine covered oak,
two friends rest in the
eve’s soft hue –
in trust…
and in friendship love.
The oncoming night
will be shared in peace…
and cradled in a dream.

Just a guy who loves to write; poetry, lyrics, short stories and random thoughts… it is my passion. Photography is my second passion as I love to capture the world around me… to make time stop and to savor a subject forever.
