A wish for you through a wisp of verse


A tiny secret. Despite everything I love to do, I am & will remain a writer at heart, lounging ever so slightly to the poet's side of a slipper chair I curl up in. For fear of laughter I rarely unleash my wisps of words on those unsuspecting & whom I've never eaten ice cream with (one bowl, 2 two spoons is a true test of friendship...not for germs but for sharing the creamy, dreamy treat) but this photo of a bathroom that I've swooned over & did so again today on My Sweet Savannah had me so entranced I tripped up & slipped a piece out onto the blogosphere.


pure grace salts releasing scentsations in ribbons
tangling 'round my sonatas
baroque & buoyant
only to be touched on the shoulder
by the cool prosecco as it crisply wisps across my tongue
a treasure, this tranquil escape

May your weekend be as wonderful a cocoon as my bath would, will be.
Much love to all....

It must be the sensible side I got from Ro in me, but all I can think when seeing that gorgeous bathroom is how the heck do they keep the fingerprints off that glass! But you know I'd say that and you know you love me anyway! And please, you know I'm am a germ-a-phob I'll give you a bite of my ice cream but it's more likely that I'll only be taking a bite of yours. I actually watched ER and my mom eat dairy queen a few weeks ago, I thought my doctor would've been very proud!

HI Alicia. Thanks for visiting my blog! Hope it hasn't impacted your bank account too much. ha ha. You don't need to speak swedish thankfully, I just sent an email off in english and crossed my fingers! I'm also thrilled you like the classics. I considered not doing anymore posts on these as wasn't getting any bites, but you have changed my mind. Sorry all this is not related to your post, which by the way, is fabuluous! The colour and natural lighting in that bathroom is dreamy!. Ciao.
