    I always make the time
    to allow my soul
    the chance to unwind

    Somedays
    I let my
    eyes glance
    over each passage
    and focus on the
    external imagery

    Other days
    I tell my mind that
    it's okay
    to absorb the messages
    of abstraction
    and to NOT search for
    deeper meaning
    where it might not be

    Even still
    I get lost in the emotion
    and at times I am overcome
    by feelings of joy and
    sadness that speak
    indirectly to me

    I've been reading you all
    for a while ...
    and although I may
    not always have an
    opportunity to respond
    --know that with each
    piece you write
    I've been introduced
    to you all -- individually
    ... collectively

    I've been reading you
    for a while and I
    always anticipate
    looking into your
    metaphorical world
    viewing your perceptions
    as an eye-witness
    -- filling in the colors
    of your paintings with
    my own brush strokes
    watching the beauty
    as it is displayed daily

    I've been reading you --
    checking you out --
    analyzing and identifying
    some of the issues
    and topics you like
    to discuss...
    you've told me what
    it's like to hurt ... and
    how it feels to be loved
    you also share fantasies

    When I read you
    I place
    my self behind the
    punctuation--
    if you've noticed
    me--
    I'm standing TALL
    next to your
    capital letters ~
    smiling endlessly

    My toggled mind
    sits underneath
    each lower cased word
    in awe...
    and I have eaten lunch
    with every one of your
    vowels

    I haven't done much else
    lately... but I will say this ~

    I've been reading YOU for
    quite a while
    and your thoughts
    are the very things
    that make
    my life -- more interesting

    what's the

    secret formula for coming up with stuff that hits the reader so deeply
    N2urSoul the name is not a understatement
    and the part about the artist speaking indirectly to you i found awesome

    Aye papi ... :wink:

    In one of your responses you made a statement that you had "been reading my pieces for a while". ... I liked the sincerity behind your conveyed compliment & so with that line I wrote this piece ... I think it says a "heart full" and it speaks of how I feel when I am reading other pieces of people's work here and elsewhere.

    :kiss:

    Thank you for noticing ME! I've got nothin' but a "lotta" love 4 ya' Boo!

    One :heart:
