As the sun sets, and sangria kisses my lips, I twirl white petals in my fingertips, manipulating them into the frame, and with my dreams, I do the same, as if the halo of the golden light will bring my heart's desires to life, and for added measure, or perhaps because I can't help but … Continue reading Evening Petals

Let our dreams merge with our petals meshing as one. Together, we fuel each other, and I fully believe we can reach the sun. … Continue reading Bloom with Me
