Smoke and Shadow

Smoke and Shadow Lady
     Chasing rainbows
          In the dark


Surround yourself in shallowness
     Too deep
          For even Mermaids
               Such as you...


And mix your potions carefully
     My Lady-of-the-Miles
Smoke and Shadow quicksand
                                              Waits...
With Night Mist Webs
Creating stories
Night Mist dark
                                              A'glistening...

    * I REMEMBER ONE 'EASTER' HEARING THIS WONDERFUL PASSAGE WHEREIN, CHRIST JESUS, JUST BEFORE HE WAS CRUCIFIED TURNED HIS EYES UNTO HEAVEN AMID THE JOY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND SAID, 'FATHER, I THANK YOU THAT YOU HAVE REVEALED TRUE WISDOM UNTO BABES AND SUCKLINGS, AND BLINDED THE EYES IN THOSE WHOM THINK THEMSELVES TO BE WISE.' THUS, SWEET BEAUTIFUL ELIZABETH, I DO BELIEVE THAT I DO SEE WHAT YOUR BEAUTY HAS SOOO PROFOUNDLY SPOKEN WITHIN A TORCHFULS WAY. QUITE CREATIVE IN EXCELLENT. MY LOVE, RACHEL *
