threaded together with veins of love and hope

when I say “you” I mean universe
because we are universe
there is no division between you and i
division is simply thoughts
and thoughts are where feelings connect

when I see you as hope
you become hope
when I see you as my lover
we make love

I’m no longer wondering what the future will be
for we are creators
partners, straddling the universe

our conversations are the art between lovers
where words become paintings
and feelings are written in blood
and in all of this
when I feel I have really found you
I acknowledge to my soul
that you have always been there

because darling,
as the universe vibrates,
your footprints hang in my soul
like lanterns in the night sky

universe, peace, love, hope, vibration, lovers

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.
