Seeking pleasure in the darkness your fingers outline the etching of a hummingbird sipping from a carafe. There is balance in paradise. Indescribable beauty in the disarray of green parrot feathers. The moon pulls out the last breath of yesterday as your hands close around mine and I guide them where callous meets softness. Desire is a rage as wild as a shock of bursting hibiscus buds. The outline of Palm fronds divide like the chambers of a heart, the sound of waves break in our bones. Our throats are grazed by the winds teeth, our eyes are the color of Bird of Paradise.

          1. Yeah! We both live in Crazy states with Moron’s for Governors and idiot legislators! They don’t care if people are dying, especially their own supporters. Just goes to show their souls!
            Hope you have a great day tomorrow! 😊💕🌹

          2. It’s tragic what has been done to innocent souls who foolishly believed the lies and liars! Wow! That’s a sad personal story you have to tell those who chose not to get vaccinated. Hopefully, you may reach at least one person to change their mind and get the shot!! Too many people still drinking the Koolaid!
            😘💕🌹

  3. ‘Tis a rich slice of love here! Like a cake to be devoured, saving the frosting for last, your words take me to a heaven’s kitchen.

          1. Thanks Coeur de Feu. Came back last Tuesday. Now to sort photos. Hope all is well? With the virus “coming back”? Stay safe. My daughter was vaccinated in January and still caught it (again) in July.

          2. Oh no, I hope she’s ok. We are running out of ICU’s in many states. Florida had a very high rate of COVID but we have lots of hospitals! Al is out of rooms and Tx had to set up outside tents. It’s pretty bad. I had a third COVID shot last week.

          3. She’s fine fortunately. Out of commission for a week. Still has a bit of a cough. I’m glad you had a third shot. Better safe than sorry. So the South is being hit badly, right? Hang in there. And stay safe. 🙏🏻😷💕🌹
