And we are happy

“And we are happy” Draped in dreams of liquid tides Shallow waters cool the breeze Toes drenched of vast believing From grassy banks, soft and pure Ripples of time pass slowly Blue sky desires paint our thoughts Soothing sunlight sparkles Glistening on the surface A butterfly lands on your shoulder Attracted by the daisy in your hair Happiness touches softly As you brush its tiny wings It flutters…as does your beauty “And you are happy” Your smile enchants me Mint mocha eyes reflect Skin glowing iridescent In warmth felt deeply Beneath this shade tree I imagine us…always Sweet lips beckon Aromatic Jasmine scent Tingles my senses Euphoria in this wildflower meadow Harmonic blooms sway melodically Nature’s symphonic movements And as we kiss…my heart sings “And I am happy” We follow an evergreen shrouded path Sweet pine on feathered branches Swaying shadows mingle Hand in hand we stroll Lost in each other Meandering through life’s beauty Drinking the sunset In open field wonders Salmon and grapefruit horizon Vertical splendor Breathing twilight’s affection Escaping the confines of reality Grasping love…to never let go “And we are happy” Reposted by request

Hi. I thought I recognized this. Just in case I didn't tell you the first time around I so loved and admired your execution of the We You I then We. That Chris was a marvelous poetic touch. You might not believe this however I have done that once or twice in the past also but not here. There is everything right about this entry. The words by you the feel of how you make the reader feel and your execution all around. Where would the world be without love.... Beautiful in every way Chris.
