The Walk of Love    			

With you now entering this heart enchanting with rose petals
You’re the sweetest flower dancing tunes inside one’s mind
Once upon a fairy tale dream adoring you my loving princess

You begin rising in the east amazing light crowning sunshine
Ultraviolet radiance glowing warm with rays of deep breaths
Inner sighs as you walk softly on the deepest of sands My Love

Your footprints are so soft and deeply touching Sweet Honey
As your loving gentleness sweeps me away into a paradise pure
Where we walk hand in hand smiling with such feeling and joy

In a thousand dreams floats one treasure of Golden Happiness
Your joy sparks liquid honey melting gold into our heartbeats
Fluttering on wings of a butterfly silently flying in the cool air

With the sweetest scent of the purest jasmine now pervading all
Breathless beauty as an angel of the heart sings a paean of delight
While the warm air dances on a flower kissing a breeze so softly

Flocks of beautiful birds sing you praises of glory that be forever 
As they fly with such grace and their hearts beat softly in rhythm
Landing on paradise as your words touch with whispers my soul

Resonating into the deepest crevices of my ethereal psyche true
While echoing inside the chambers of your lucent pretty presence
Holding hands as the sunlight beams your every foot step now

As shadows silver dancing waves call out one name within each
Echo crashing salted sure your spices kiss our magic moments
As a gentle but sensual wind kisses the lips of a lovely Sweet Siren

As she holds us in her dreams of a wonderful love so rich and pure
We share the Dream of a thousand lifetimes beyond all compare
As twelve rich red roses blush in the heavens where one diamond

Shines so brightly with a rainbow array of heavenly colors pure 
Reflecting God’s own divine design and wish for us to keep our
Eternal promise now My Love with a ring symbolizing us as One

Hello Freddie!! See you've been going back in my archive for this Tercet from 2015. (This one will in fact eventually appear in my second book of poetry which is currently under long-term development; it will get published though for sure in the future.) This is one that Liam and I were able to intermix and blend our ideas and skills together to come up with enchanted write. I really like this one too!! We need to do some more of these in the future. Cheers and Best Always, Gary

Hello Dave ("LM"), Thanks Again!! Yup -- Liam and I slipped through the net with this one!! This is the first time for me with "POTY," however, Liam's a several-time recipient of this PS recognition. For some reason the planets and stars seem to be in alignment with our recent writes although we've had others pretty much of equal stature, but there are a lot of other great poets out there too, to include you Dave!! Cheers and Best, Gary

Dave, I'm already working on my second book (to be entitled: "Storyteller -- A Book of Selected Poetry and Short Stories.") The co-written poems that Liam and I have done together will be included in this book, just like in my first one ("Conversations with My Muse"). Liam and I have also discussed a possible co-authored book too for later. The short story writing is keeping me very busy!! Cheers, Gary

Hello Olive Eloisa Dear One!! Thank you so very much for your wonderful comments and your vote of confidence in our co-authored effort here. I know that Liam, as I am, certainly appreciate your words and the FAV!! too!! (The Tercet is a spin-off form from the original Terza Rima that Poetry Soup uses in their pick-list of categories. The Tercet (aka: Triplet) can be rhymed or unrhymed. John Drury's "The Poetry Dictionary," among many other sources has one of the explanations the Tercet form in relation to the Terza Rima and other variations. I hope this helps!!) You should try it, I know you will like it Olive!! Thanks Again!! Cheers, Gary

Thanks Alexis!! I'm glad you dropped by too to read this co-write from Liam and me. He and I had completed another one on July 5th ("Mother Nature's Little Prince") for which Liam got POTD recently for his post of it. Although we both, of course, independently write our own poems, we do team on certain fantasy, love, fairy tale themes we both find interesting and have a passion for. Recommend you check out "Always a Dream" which is a fairy tale write we both did last year about Leprechaun and a Fairy Princess who eventually become a Prince and Princess (similar to "Mother Nature's Little Prince). "Always a Dream" is listed under my poems, dated 29 Oct 14. Thanks for the "7" too. (Liam will probably respond separately.) Cheers, Gary

Hello "D"!! Glad you liked this co-write by Liam and me. Thanks for the "7" + FAV!! and your most wonderful comments. (Liam may be commenting later separately.) I know that both Liam and I really enjoy our collaborations particularly on the fantasy and love themes. I believe also that the quality of our writes has continued to improve over time as we do more and more of these types of writes. Since I write for publication ultimately, I'm really picky about how the final product turns out. As you know, this cuts down on "rewrites" later on. God Bless You "D" -- Cheers and All The Best!! Gary
