What if you slept?

And what if in your sleep, you dreamed?

And what if in your dream,

you went to Heaven?

And there, plucked a strange

and beautiful flower?

And, what if, when you awoke

you had the flower in your hand?

~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge

We ascribe beauty to that which is simple; which has no superfluous parts;

which exactly answers its end; which stands related to all things; which is the mean of many extremes.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

romancing Lily

romancing Lily

Across the crowded ballroom Cal saw her.  She was an elegant vision in white silk that took his breath away.

At last he caught her eye.  He flashed his debonair smile.  She fluttered her eyelashes and blushed sweetly.

Cal smoothly made his way towards her, his eyes never leaving her face.  Lily glided over to him, her gown rippling in her wake.

They met.

He took her white gloved hand and kissed it,

breathing, “My dear Lily, I’m utterly enchanted by your beauty.

Shall we dance?”
