- Life Behind The Mirror -

Enchanting chambers made of glass Breaking reflections shatter falling into ruin The history behind the tears and sorrow of a heart Fragile echoes inside truth broken always sings If this be loves beauty like dropping crystals splash Speaks a language of one thousand tongues when the sparks fly The soul released from thought Faraway shadows cover a dream When you have found what you're looking for And always breathe in the beauty of nature Silver buds glisten in morning dew Millions of years before you or me Weeping willow hangs heavy over us These things and so many more have made you and me understand Blossoming sunshine shades golden Crowned kissed by love in the summer rain What a beauty to wake up to birdsong Carried on gentle winds when they sigh Hearing screams from the raven far up in the mountains Secrets of the water flowing whispers Our lives have a meaning here on this earth Stars circle your space in another realm Thoughts and dreams put together as mosaic A moon smiles as shadows dances to a joyous tune The smell of pine needles tickle in the nose As a sun lights our footsteps with golden harmony Commitment strong and sense of purpose is the key to life 13.05.2015 Written by L.

Congrats! Loved the imagery here. You both are so in touch with nature. The meaning of our existence is something that we all need to think about. That you for this moving piece. I LOVE the weeping willow...the scent of pine trees....summer rain...so many beautiful things you've capture in words. HUGS to two poets whom I love dearly.
