through the gathering mist
lights my way down a path of
emerald grass the dew has kissed

Ahead the lake just sparkles

Premium Member Scenes of Spring Magic
Stage is set

Participants in place

A wolf moon smiles

Bright stars palpitate

Roses in a garden

Lovers sitting on a bench

Hand sending messages

Lips kissing to undress

Bodies on fire

Temperature’s hot

tossed aside, two black-and-white die
silver glinting of a spoon
little green soldiers in a platoon
things you forget around the house

Stardust vigil of eager twelve-year-old
Owl’s evening hoots brings awe to forest
Sweeping shadows inspires imagination full tilt.
Memory floats up sixty years later, making her smile.
