I am dreaming of you tonight, though we may never meet but if we do, you will know me by my hyacinth shoes. You will remember me in the pale blooms that float on billabongs or ponds I will take you along dusty streets an outback town, where currawongs call at dusk from scraggly gums, branches rocking in the wind I will whisper secrets of morning glory vines along a back fence- of the surprise that Spring's first snowdrop brings it’s green petals dotted and lined with delicate green. Your sorrow will never be the color of them your joy only as high as the elation they bring I will teach you to sing by slow caresses, my hair on your skin to dance with soft words that waltz over a carpets of leaves No-one will know the small cues - each tiny gesture that will guide us into life’s un-knowable purpose. Suzanne Delaney

This is one of those "I wish I had written it" writes. Exceptionally romantic, pensive, and yes, dreamlike, but more like a daydream because it is too wakened to be asleep.

Suzanne, I like how you incorporated your natural environment into this.piece. I believe the natural elements around us help form the core of our selves, and nothing is quite as sensuous as nature. Here's to instant recognition love.
