    i lay...
    listening to the songs of a thousand streams
    as though...locked in a dream
    while the birds fly by

    the moonlight caught my eye
    along the rippling waves
    doing their springtime ripple dance
    {got me thinking of romance}

    aroused by soothing thoughts of you
    standing beneath the swinging hue of rhapsody
    that is your due

    i'm consumed by thoughts and visions of you
    even though you know my love is true
    i do the things love drives me to do
    like gentle caresses and caring for you

    "hello" pulls me away from my dreams
    surrounded by the beauty of natural things
    like weeping willows hanging everywhere
    as, still in a dream, the fog clears and you're there

    baby birds were flying to and fro
    around and between...gliding very low
    silence and songs...were heard by all
    songs of joy...and mating calls
    throughout the night...i held you tight
    within our world...under the moon's light
    that night i pledged my love to you
    us
    for life
    as dreams came true.

    the moon captures the sparkle in your eyes
    where fantasies and dreams have come to reside
    we're joined as ONE and a child is conceived
    of love and joy...and you best believe
    when tomorrow comes...we'll remember the night
    where pleasure of ONE made living seem right

    Baller...

    Baller...oh Baller,

    I am speechless...but I must find words for this awesome scene you painted with words. Who? What? How do you...oh never mind. The words, the lines, the gentleness of love expressed. What can I say that will go beyond the word...beautiful.

    I will tell you this though. There's not a woman on the planet who doesn't enjoy poetry like this...not one.

    Luvin' every line...Joyce

    Baller....

    I keep saying your poems are so
    beautiful, yet each one is unique in
    its beauty...

    "hello" pulls me away from my dreams
    surrounded by the beauty of natural things
    like weeping willows hanging everywhere
    as, still in a dream, the fog clears and you're there.

    This verse here is...how can I say...breathtaking
    in its description of loving someone dearly.

    keep doin what you do...

    Epiphany :heart:
