Where

.

I
float
away

~

Drift
on
dreams

.

so
deep;

~

Inhaled
memories

~

Precious
grains

.

I
keep;

~

Feeling

.

like
you’re
near

~

Miles

.

melt
away;

~

I
can
hear

.

your
song

~

Heartstrings
strum

.

and
play;

~

Patiently

.

I
bask

~

Nestled
by

.

the
sea;

~

Awaiting
sunsets

.

vowed

.

just
to

.

you

and

me.

IMG_6158Special thanks to my beautiful subject (and muse)
for permitting me to publish the above photo
and inspired verse.


Love’s Wings

Guide the way,
I’m  by
your
side

~

We’ll fly
beyond a
vast red
sky;

~

Above
the sea’s
ecstatic
waves

~

Around
a solar
flame
engraved;

~

You won’t
see me, but
feel my
fire

~

Pure heat that
fuels your
soul’s
desire;

~

There are no
rules, nor
risk…or
will

~

On
wings
of
love

~

where
worlds
stand
still.

the transcendent
natural force
we call

Love

Unending Love, 1889
by Rabindranath Tagore

 

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times…
In life after life, in age after age, forever.
My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs,
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms,
In life after life, in age after age, forever.

Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, it’s age-old pain,
It’s ancient tale of being apart or together.
As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge,
Clad in the light of a pole-star piercing the darkness of time:
You become an image of what is remembered forever.

You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount.
At the heart of time, love of one for another.
We have played along side millions of lovers, shared in the same
Shy sweetness of meeting, the same distressful tears of farewell-
Old love but in shapes that renew and renew forever.

Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you
The love of all man’s days both past and forever:
Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal life.
The memories of all loves merging with this one love of ours –
And the songs of every poet past and forever.

 


Much Love on
Valentine’s Day
and  Always,

 ❤  Robyn Lee


Just When You…

Just when you
believed
you
knew

~

the
beauty;

the
magic;

the
rapture;

of
our

brilliant
winter
sun

setting herself
over
the

eager
majestic
sea;

~

you
suddenly
realize

that,

in
essence,

~

you
know

~

nothing
at
all.

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!

The Finale

The time has
Come.

She
Composes
Herself

After a long
Gratifying
Day,

Slowly
Spiraling
Down

to
Commence

The Grand
Finale

of

Yet
Another

Stellar
Performance.

~

He
Waits

Beneath
the
Dimly
Lit

Golden
Sky

Anticipating
Her

Glorious
Descent,

Longing
For

The
Moment

He’s
Envisioned

All
Day.

~

The
Moment

She gracefully
Dips into
His

Fluid
Embrace;

~

The
Moment

She
Glides

Atop
the
Moist
Ripples

of
His

Unyielding
Crests;

~

The
Moment

He
Sizzles,

Feeling
the

Impassioned
Electric
Charge

of

Her
Heart’s
Fiery rays;

~

And

The
Moment

She Sets

Herself
Down
Tenderly

Over
His

Strong
Exhilarated
Body.

~
But
~

He
Reminds
Himself that

This
Ecstatic
Moment

Will be
Brief,

 And then
Without warning

She will
Mysteriously
Vanish;

Fading

Into
Pure
Nothingness,

Disappearing

Below
Dusk’s
Horizon,

 Beyond the
Sheer
Curtain

of

Night’s
Darkness,

Leaving behind
Only

Her

Faint
Glow

Warm
Mist

Radiant
Memory.

 ~

And he will
Harbor

This
Memory

Deep

Within
His
Core,

Breathing

Her
Luminous
Energy

In
and
Out

All
Night long

~

Secure
In the
Knowing

That with
Tomorrow’s
Dawn

~

She will

Shine

Upon
Him

Once More.

Remembrance

“To Live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die.”

I dedicate this post tonight to my dear, beautiful friend Susan who concluded her fierce battle with Melanoma today. Susan was one of the most kind, loving and loyal souls on planet earth. I shot this photo of the sun’s descent earlier tonight at Jetty 4, Susan’s favorite beach, less than two hours before I learned of her passing.

 Susan will live on in my heart, and in the hearts of so many she has touched with her warm, generous spirit.

God Bless you Susan; you will be sorely missed. We will Love you forever Dearest Friend…
