I see you blazing across the hills
In sinuous undulations
A streak of fire
Transmitting
All the promises of ice.
Obsidian calculation
Writ in the scrolls of DNA
Whispered
A tale of burning chrome.
We found the symmetry of our love
Embedded In the filters of exposure,
Neon waves,
And fragile intimacy.

Angle.
or
AngEL.??
This reminds me of watching the northern lights dancing. Was that your intention?

Oh you and your magic rides for me.

One of my wicked joys is to create unique imagery in people's imagination, and sprinkle it here and there with a bit of fairy dust.

Gracias Peach!

And then....... I have a sense of adventure, of reaching heights through driven ice and rocky outcrops, steel crashing through ice whilst ripped by chill winds........ hmmmm as I said 'intruiging'
