The state of beauty, 
And the presence of nature’s as it...Read More

Premium Member Happiness
I love to wander
amongst meadows and fields,
the sky's like blue satin
the lake's like a sheet.
The air's pleasantly cool,
as birds chirp and glide
and crickets, as is their wont
invent an orchestral chant.

There in a bower
two young lovers meet,
their arms are entwined

the dark and despair of
this world I'm living in
Another morning
another forecast of foggy skies
with no clear vision in sight

Eventually through Time .
Even The black thundering nights have blue sky
Hidden behind.

A memory is a marvellous thing,
It can summon a friend from afar,
and always make my childhood come to life.
It can make me sing and laugh, or even make me cry,
When I think how much my memory misses you.
