Art comes in many forms - painting, sculpture, literature, architecture, music, dance, theater, photography and films.
Whatever form of art we see, its main characteristic is that it is pleasing to the senses. It expresses the feelings and emotions of the artist and it can be interpreted in different ways by different people. Any type of art, essentially tells a story.
They say to appreciate a painting, we're taught to look for color, composition, and light. But how can a painting be savored by someone who's blind?
When it comes to famous paintings, Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa (see stamp) is arguably the most visited and famous piece of art in the world. In an...
"Every heart sings a song, incomplete,
until another heart whispers back.
Those who wish to sing always find a song.
At the touch of a lover,
everyone becomes a poet."

There are no accidents, there are no coincidences; there is only truth. And your truth is being revealed to you through synchronistic rendezvous with people and circumstances that are vibrating similar frequencies as you, so that you become aware of what you are transmitting into the universe for the purpose of experiencing, learning and then finally fine tuning your vibration to enhance your physical experience.
Everyone that comes into your life is your teacher and vice versa. Our connection with others and what we experience is a reflection of ourselves.
We searched for a place where time couldn't reach.
We found each other.
I look forward to spending time at 9:00 pm at night loving you.

i think right here
that's where we'll meet
i'll wear a skirt
you'll slip inside me
as i sit upon you
and we'll gaze above us
at the Eiffel Paree
but they'll never know
the connections we've made
we move oh so slow
just slightly rocking
you're squeezing me tight
restrained by publicity
we'll want to go faster
abandon our care
i want to scream
as you're pulling my hair
but slowly! so slowly
so nobody knows
our bodies afire
from head to our toes
the moment is building
we pant in short gasps
our fingers entwined
urgent, fierce grasps
people move us by
within a few feet
of our sensual
We love to look at the dark side of human nature most times. Lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride are after all more interesting than chastity, temperance, charity, diligence, forgiveness, kindness and humility. We don't talk of poor little Bo Beep who lost her sheep, we want to talk of the Big Bad Wolf who preys on little succulent children. It's like when we gossip we don't talk about the good things people do. The more disgusting and bizarre a thing is, the more hoopla there is.
Society up to a certain level constraints us from consuming or destroying one another physically through social devices we have so conveniently invented. Gossip is passive aggression basically. T...
There’s nothing better
than learning your body.
Becoming a pioneer
of your terrain
and planting flags
at each one of your hot spots
so I don’t forget
all the wonders I’ve seen
that weren’t on the map
and the twists and turns
that would have tripped up
too frightened of the heights
and too nervous for the depths.
Rebuild your life from scratch.
Accept change and trust
the power of new beginnings.
Give her a sense of purpose -
a reason to tear the page,
and write her story again.
Now and again we try to show the world we are faultless with the expectation that we will be loved and acknowledged by everybody, except we can't please everybody and we shouldn't try. The magnificence of us lies in our powerlessness, our intricate feelings, and our bona fide imperfections. When we grasp our identity and choose to be true, rather than who we might suspect others need us to be, we open ourselves up to genuine connections, genuine joy, and genuine achievement.
words drip from my pen
falling ever falling
succumbing to gravity's lust
the only thing keeping me up
fast, fleet, frenetic feet
tiptoeing atop free falling phrase
until i clearly saw
the substance of inky myth
words alone not enough
now i'm falling ever falling
down this endless ebon hole
bereft of words; and love.
