Baby, here...

By gumshoe

                                   as the sun falls
From heaven to heart to hand to bed
Of sky

One day you will no longer be calmed
By the breast pressed against your lips
Nor the landscape before your eyes
May you stand straight against the winding wind
And embrace the raging river
With the same tenderness these arms offered
Every evening where the sky meets the shore
We'll ready our beds and sway to the rhythm of all things
Where the orange and yellow lands blanket each other
From golden to violet to cheek to pillow

Forever Together

    Your words are calming and deep and I love every thought. And it is charming what a mysterious member of the Valley you are.

  • A former member wrote: These poems have a way to break down my thoughts and make me feel like a simple girl. I agree with Summer. I feel like a child. Well done.

  • A former member wrote: Only in dreams and drug psychosis. But, you phrase it perfectly.
