From Fantasy to Reality

“I love you,” he said
and drew lines
in the sand of his emotions
awaiting the ocean of time
to wash them from his heart
when the vacation was over.

“I love you,” she said
and etched deep crevasses in
the rock of her emotions
awaiting the wind of time
to slowly and painfully
wear them from her heart
when he left.

Two perspectives of the same holy gratuitous act…

I am a dreamer, artist, and mother. I dance in the rain, spend too much time reading books, and live for my family. I am a gypsy, poet, musician, and artist. But most of all, I am a butterfly fairy. Come dream with me.
