How is an Intimate Relationship like a Fragrant Red Rose?

 Red Rose

When our intimate relationships flourish, our lives radiate joy and we rest in deep peace. Our bodies feel healthy, and we naturally uplift those around us with our very presence.

Spiritual and human intimacy fill us with beauty, just like the perfume of a beautiful red rose.

Can you remember the last time you bent down to smell a rose and lingered in its fragrance?

Scented roses are very rare, and so is fulfilling romantic love. It can be the most challenging form of love, and yet it yields the deepest sweetness.

The Beckoning Moon

A day’s work comes to a close.
Driving down the highway, homeward bound,
Feeling content, peaceful, and happy.

The softly lit full moon, fringed with a fuzzy glow,
rests against a blanket of puffy faint clouds.
Tiny lightening bolts toss pink and yellow streaks across the sky.
Flashes of color decorate the tranquil masterpiece.
Shadowy outlines of trees draw lacy curtains over the moon.

The sweet fragrance of my perfume,
gentle sounds of jazz filling my ears,
winding around the curves,
rolling up and down the hills,
absorbed with nature’s expansive beauty.

Wishing you were here beside me
to share my joy and feel the beauty of this moment.

Trust Me~Prose

Loving you is like riding a giant roller coaster.
Slowly mounting anticipation
rushes into elevated excitement
that dips into deep sadness.

You draw near.
You stay.
You leave again. (Read more.) Read more

Your Gentle Constant Encouragement~Prose

Hibiscus, yellow

You are willing to give up what you are for the sake of what you can become.

In so doing, you flourish and thrive.
