I've never been one to duck a challenge...and I will try anything once.....LOLS "-

Jerry Bolton's Septcouplet Challenge



I will give you every little piece of me

in more ways than one, I will love you

surrounding you with my presence

I won't hold back anything

for you are the apple of my eye

and the keeper of my heart


my angel of light

in whom I delight


the light in your eyes

is making me high

and deep within, I feel the mysterious attraction

magnetic pulses drawing us together

even while we are apart

there is a vibrant connection


two moths one flame

the age old game


lost we are in the throes of heaven

swept along in the tide of passion

nurtured and sweetened by grace and virtue

touched and nourished by divine inspiration

destiny cast us in this joyful role

and no power on earth, can set us apart


for we are free

as everyone can see


we will strive for the stars

and keep our spirits soaring high

and each day will be a gift from God

to serve him, as its meant to be

giving back to the source

what we have received in full


no pain no gain

keep it plain


today is all we have for sure

tomorrow may never be ours

the candle of life burns so bright

and simultaneously flickers in motion

so seize the moment for what its worth

and never look back to the past again


don't stand still

or wait until


we'll build our nest on firm foundations

a solid shape in potter's clay

withstanding storms and tribulations

in the Lord we place our trust

fear is banished , in the wink of an eye

as we move forward in utter confidence


nerves of steel

touched by zeal


each day will be unique, as we branch far out

we'll flow with the ebbs and eddies of the tide

total expression is the name of the game

diverse and flexible to achieve our aims

to lead by example. and show the way

by being loving and compassionate to a fault


adopt and adapt

a simple act

One of your best pieces I've read, Peter! I've seen your words of enthusiasm be the propellant power that takes you from lift-off (your astronaut pieces) to a steady, upward surge of perfection, each day, something of value you share with the Den. I appreciate you, Peter. You have an awesome jet force that puts your dreams in orbit!
