"There is a splendor dissatisfaction in the crimson wave of red
That brightens at the moonlights touch
Stripped bare of the shore that guides it home
The hollow taste of freedom lingers where love used to lie,
Ribbons of sand dancing in the soft stretch of wind
Reaching the waves as tender droves in the night
Washing all sins goodbye"

NevaehLleh: torso

for you

For you, I thought I knew love
In foolish partners, in hap-hazard encounters
In strangers, and dangerous affairs

For you, I made abundant mistakes
Growing and learning carefully, carelessly
Redefining my insides to the out

For you, I'm taking a chance
Hoping you'll forgive and understand
Knowing none of it was planned

For you, I spent this lifetime
Searching until I found 
Your eyes, your words...and those hands.
For you, my thoughts race
This heart refuses to beat
And for your reply...I wait...

"sandy love"

“Censorship” Miss America Series

well facebook has deleted some more of my images and this time some of my best work.
It deeply saddens me that in 21 century and a social network group finds my social commentary work offensive.

Prayer for Gulf

with all these news about the gulf spreading around I welcomed this as an alternative solution from Japanese  scientist Dr. Masaru Emoto:

Prayer for Gulf

"I send the energy of love and gratitude to the waters and all living creatures in the Gulf of Mexico and its surroundings.

To the whales, dolphins, pelicans, fish, shellfish, planktons, corals, algae ... to ALL living creatures ... I am sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I Love You."

Feel free to send it around the planet.
with much love and respect
