Down In The Valley

Bikurgurl 100 Word Wednesday: Week 77

What 100 words would you give this image?

Image by Bikurgurl

Down in the valley where the sun sets
warm thoughts of relaxing with a glass of fine wine
my lover by my side holding hands begins
our romantic night of unbridled intimacy
awakening to a morning love hangover
our souls content with the fullness of enrapture
knowing we’ve just begun a lifetime together
of sunsets and sunrises with afternoon ardor inbetween
living as if we were characters from an unending romance novel
filling the pages with more than what could be written about…

Oh, if only I could make my written words become my novel to live out in reality.

Moon Floating Dreams

golden hues trickle
upon dark rippling waters
stirring desires

of moon floating dreams
from the noises of the world
romance of silence

Romance Of My Heart

I remember when
we kissed under the full moon
before you passed from this earth

my lips still taste yours
the memory of us lives
in the romance of my heart
