Give Me Cloudy Days

Give me cloudy days!Fill the skieswith grandiose displays,billows of magnificence,those ever-shifting shapes!

Love’s Lyrics

It is this love that stills me, leaves me so enchantedly stunned, these alpha-characters suddenly seeming so insufficient. Every feeling filling me, extraterrestrial transcendence; this love lifts me so far … Continue reading Love’s Lyrics
