A pleasant day dream.

We journey
in a rowing boat
upon a gently moving stream
Without oars to steer our path
- we move with the flow of the current.
A comforting rocking motion
lulls us to semi sleep.
The mischievous sun
flitters over our bare skin
in a game of peek-a-boo
with the overhanging trees.
Peace pervades
as the redolence
of earth-scented air
is sleepily breathed into our lungs.
The greater peace, however,
comes from the embrace
of loving arms
and in listening
to the gentle rhythmic beat
of a lover's heart...

We reach out to each other for answers and seldom find them. The most we can hope for is a lonely soul to find us, a warm heart to embrace us,and toleration.

I only wish that I was in my lover's arms right now. In his sweet, strong, but gentle embrace, telling me everything is ok. This is a beautiful write Chanti, I enjoyed reading it very much. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, pece on earth, & ((((((((((MANY SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

Dearest Chanti, This poetic offering is most soothing to my soul. I read a verse, close my eyes and I am where you describe. Thank you for sharing this slice of peace and gentleness. Much love to you.

Peace Be With You,

Both poetry and watercolour are tranquil and oh, so soothing and evocative. I can feel, smell, see and taste every breath of this, Chanti, it is so tactile. This rocks as smooth as love's lullaby and the sense of safety and security is like being swaddled close to the breast - so warm and comforting. Just gorgeous. A blissful and contented Lady Of Shallot-type write. Makes me just want to go do it and to just "go with the flow"... Excellent, TY LOL Kate xx

And I LOVE sea pictures done in soft watercolors, as this one is.
Yours? If so, you are a most exceptional artist as well as a poet!!!

Chanti, this is magnificent. I'd love to know how you are able to use such lovely fonts rather than the rather homely ones available to us on AD...Michelle
