El Arte De Amor

Tracing
a
path

~

to
the
secret
enclave,

~

deep
within

her
pensive
soul;

~

Traversing
slowly

through

exotic
terrain,

~

He
navigates

the

fluent
contours

~

of
her

exquisite
architecture;

~

Accentuating

her
sheer
radiance

~

with
vibrant
hues

~

and
gentle
strokes;

~

Creating

light
and
space

~

and
hope

~

within
the
delicate
recesses

~

of
her

unspoken
dreams.

……….

And
then,

~

for
just a
brief
moment,

~

he
stills

his
beloved
brush,

~

whispers
a
prayer,

~

and
tenderly

~

paints

her
heart.

The lovely young woman featured in this image is  My Butterfly  at The Alcázare of Seville (Spanish “Reales Alcázares de Sevilla” or “Royal Alcazars of Seville” ).  Alcazars is a royal palace in Seville, Spain.  Originally a Moorish fort, It is the oldest royal palace still in use in Europe.


Captivated

His
eyes
held me
captive

~

from
the very
first
stare;

~

A
presence

~

A
power

~

Quelling
all
mortal
fear;

~

I
hungered
to
touch

~

his strong
noble
soul;

~

Delight
and
devour

~

Relinquish
control;

~

“But there’s
so much
at
stake”

~

I
heard
a
voice
say,

~

“He is not
of
your
kind,

~

there
are
boundaries
at
play.”

~

In
that
one final
moment

~

Our
eyes
locked
in
embrace

~

Knowing

~

we
would
meet once
again

A
new
time

~

A
new
place.

IMG_0094

You
wait

~

you
watch

~

you
wonder;

~

Patiently,

nurturing

~

caring

~

saturating
me

with
love;

~

And
slowly,

~

layer
by
layer

~

moment
by
moment

~

petal
by
petal;

~

I
open

~

I
reveal
~

I
expose;

~

Unfolding
gracefully
before
you;

~

Offering

my
raw
essence

~

in

all

its
flushed

complexities;

~

Amidst
intricate
creases

and
tender
curves;

~

Unmasking
hidden
facets

~

of
my truest
nature

~

and
the
most
delicate

mysteries;

~

Releasing
sensitive
sweet

aroma;

~
Deep

red
shades

of

~

beauty,

vibrancy

and

life;

~

Until
finally

I
bloom

~

fully

~

wholly;

~

And
you,

the

witness,

~

  Find
a

  joyous
place

~

in the
softest

perfect
center

of
me;

~

Knowing
that

tomorrow

~

it
may
not

be

ours

~

to
hold.

Solitary Sunset

Alone
at
last

~

I’m
on my
way

~

Our
Rendezvous

~

Down
by the
bay;

~

Please
wait for
me

~

Will
be there
soon

~

Been
counting
minutes

~

All
afternoon;

~

Your
fiery
touch

~

Your
golden
soul

~

Your
love

~

that
melts

~

the
bitter
cold;

~

 Oh
Darling

~

I
Anticipate

~

That
haunting
thrill

~

Predestined
fate;

~

And
always

~

When
the
day

~

is
through,

~

there’s
nothing

~

I
want

~

more

than

~

YOU!

Clouds conjure a spell

Uplifted ~ A Dedication

~~

 Uplift me
Today

 Beside you
I’ll stay

~~

Loving strength
You extend

Broken pieces
We’ll mend

~~

Despite dares
That we face

Conjoined faith
We embrace

~~

Roots of passion
Persist

Amongst perilous
Twists;

~~

So

Together
We
Soar

~~

Bound as
One

Evermore.

To all of my wonderful blog friends,

I dedicate this post to all of you who have been my ‘uplifters’ over these past several months. I have been deeply moved by  your collective love and support with regard to both, my ongoing medical challenges, and my creative journey through blogging. The friends I’ve made here are some of the kindest and most generous and genuine people I’ve known. You have all  touched my soul, and taught me so much. 

Currently, I am facing more difficult times physically, and will need to reduce my blogging schedule temporarily. I want to let everyone know that I will be reading and posting whenever I can, and also want to express my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all of you angels who have uplifted me in more ways than I can describe!

You are truly a phenomenal group, and I’m blessed to know each and every one of you.

Much Love, Gratitude and Wellness Always~

Robyn Lee

 


The One

In
the
Midnight
of my

yearning

I
Fall

Deeply

into
the
Clutches
of

~

The One

who
Promises to

Accept
me
unconditionally;

~

The One

who
will

 Soothe my
body,

Purify my
soul,

and

Cleanse my
mind;

~

The One 

who
masterfully

Reflects
my
light

and

Drowns
my
shadows.

~~~

I

Succumb

readily

to

~

The One

who

Heats
my
flesh

and

Circulates
my
blood;

~

The One

who
Immerses
me
in
a

Solid
Vessel

of

Intoxicating
Liquid
Bliss.

~~~

I surrender my
Whole
Self
to

~

The One

with
Power

To
Dilute
my
Pain

and

Invigorate
me

from
Head to
Toe,

Lavishly,

Sensually,

During
the
Darkest hour

of
Night;

Beneath the
Warm
Glow

of
Amber
Flames;

~~~

Always there

Always willing

Always waiting

Just
For
me;

~

The One

I
Love

~

My

Tub.

Shadow Lover


Take me to the green in you

The secret valley beneath the sun

Hidden behind the whispering ghosts

Of whom you pretend to be

Open up your mossy arms

So I may open mine

And wrap all limbs round your spirit wide

To exist as half no more

Bring me to your mossy floor

Beneath the shadows of your fear

A raven bride in white

A ladder to your soul

Fold down your branches

Peel open your chocolate bark

So I may pour

As liquid amber

Through your very veins

I am thrilled to share this collaborative project with you today. Special thanks to Sam of of  Everyday Asperger’s, who penned this stunning piece entitled The Raven Bride in White at the most perfect time to accompany my beloved shadow image.

Hope you enjoyed!

Much Love ~ Robyn Lee



Resist Not

She concedes at last
’twas all for naught;

The knowing she craves
Cannot be sought.

Nothing to fight
Nor push against;

She lets down her guard
No resist, or defense.

When tomorrow is born
She will sense life anew;

For it’s only to Self
That she need remain true.

~Robyn Lee


Temptation

When sweet temptation stares you down
Do not despair for you have found;
That sacred place dwelled deep inside
Where vital sparks of you reside

~ RL


Pursuit

“Performance depends neither on size nor strength,
but rather on fuel of the spirit.”

~Robyn Lee


Plunge

When life offers the
gift of opportunity,
we must be ready to take that plunge…

And when we plunge–
let it be without pause,
with pure passion,
and with every fiber of our being.

~Robyn Lee
