With Finespun Fingers






With finespun fingers of silky words brushed with passionate warmth cashmere, fill my pillow here with your lush and luscious thoughts so my starry-eyes may wander hushed sighs, as mere sleepy sweet nothings whisper flushed forget-me-nots. Dress my dreams agleam your soft sterling tiffany, on moonbeams of cream chiffon fly your mused rapture in glimmers; so shimmers swooned stream’s epiphany of silky words cashmere - dream’s cocoon you capture.

You have a rare understanding of words and the atmosphere they create. This can only come from an honest heart's life experience. Some folks become hardened, having been hurt beyond bravery. And some folks, forgive... and, therefore, have learned to love more deeply. I think you are the positive latter. Great writing!!

That you are this aware gives me the feeling that you practice and believe in forgiveness too and that your well of love must run deep also.. Thank you for sharing your precious thoughts with me. Warmest wishes my friend. ~Susan
