Fragrance of Roses

Pure white petals

Laced with a dash of pink

Twirling in the golden rays

Blushing rosy at the kisses

From the morning sun

Your perfume intoxicating

Draw in bees and butterflies

Mesmerized by your fragrance and beauty

Even the glorious sun cannot resist

Showering his sparkles on you


Dogs are True Love

Those faithful eyes that say, “I’ll love you forever” and mean it

That wet nose on my lap breathing me in, sighing contently, “That’s my favourite smell in the world”

Those loyal paws that follow me wherever I go, promising, “I will be by your side as long as I live” 🐾

That wagging tail, nineteen to the dozen, showing, “I’m happiest when I see you”

Those loving licks replacing my tears, showering kisses on me

Those soft droopy ears that flop on my tummy when you rest your head on me; your gentle snores saying, “The sound of your heartbeat is the one melody that gives me peace and I know I’m home where you are”

Fairy tales are real in a dog’s true love

Holding On To Serendipity

The flowers and birds seemed drawn to her
She looked so pure and lovely

Twirling with happiness
In the meadows
Free under the blue sky
Sunlight kissing her face

She was hugging the wind
Arms open wide
Taking in the perfume of wild daisies and poppies
Blooming in profusion around her

I stood watching her face overflow with deep content
I’d planned our surprise date with nature
Knowing full well she’d be thrilled

This gentle yet strong woman
Had chosen to give her fierce loyalty and love to me

All I want is to cherish and protect her
Keep her close inside my arms

She brought out the best in me
Made me want to overcome my darkness
She was my light

Her eyes sparkling
Hair dancing in the sunshine
She walked towards me

My heart leapt
I fervently wished I was the gentle breeze
That caressed and touched her face forever

Soulmates Meet

Their faces glowed alight

A thousand dazzling suns radiant

So pure was their joy!

At the sheer glimpse of their heady smiles

Meeting after lifetimes afar

They were each other’s universe…

The sound of their voices

Intoxicating the other

Head giddy, knees wobbly

Eyes welling up with raw emotion

Heck “butterflies in the tummy”, a gigantic understatement

They took a step forward

Into the realm of the other’s presence

So they could breathe

The magnificent air that was lucky enough to be respired by the other

So immense and utter had been their yearning

Crossing dimensions, they had met

To acquire their best friend for life

Mercy! Hell don’t keep them apart

That being, that soul, each’s life’s breath they were

As they walked about, talked, smiled and laughed

Their hearts filled up with love like an over-sized balloon, bigger and bigger

It threatened to explode with their tender affection for each other

For none could love each other more, they knew

Feeling the warmth of their closeness

Lose themselves in the safety of their embrace

The Ocean and the Seashore – A Love Beyond Time

Ours is a tale of love as old as creation.

For you are the Ocean and I am the Seashore.

The music of our joy, our song besprinkled,

In seashells across the earth.

The waves and the sand merge together for eternity. The Ocean returns after a weary trip round the world into the arms of his beloved Seashore, who waits earnestly and patiently for him to come home to her. Their union brings happiness to their human children as they frolic and play in the dancing, lapping, majestic waves and bury their feet in the warm, healing sands.

The Ocean and the Seashore are inseparable. Without boundaries, they blend and mix, entwine in such harmony that it is unfathomable where the Ocean ends and the Seashore begins.

Thus are you and I joined together forever. Sure as the sun that bounces golden above the waters.

Sacred is the place where I met you and you professed that Your love for me “is as vast as the sea, the ocean that spans this earth” and I was overcome and conceded, “You have me that loves you forever”. I saw your face light up in the most beautiful smile of thrill and contentment that my heart melted.

I rest my head on your shoulder, sitting beside you in the soft sand and you hold my fingers in yours. As I watch the blue waters stretch out to the sun and the endless sky change colours, I can’t but feel at peace with nature and with myself.
