“Paradise lies at the feet of your mother.”


“The scatterbrain,
is a little like,
the patter of rain…”

Time …  “Dead yesterdays and unborn tomorrows; why fret about it, if today be sweet?”    

– Omar Khayyam

“The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you,

Don’t go back to sleep.”

Spirit by French artist George Roux, 1885.

“Spirit” by George Roux, 1885 


“Be hole,
be dust,
be dream,
be wind

Be night,
be dark,
be wish,
be mind,

Now slip,
now slide,
now move unseen



“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.”

“I am the lover’s gift; I am the wedding wreath;
I am the memory of a moment of happiness;
I am the last gift of the living to the dead;
I am a part of joy and a part of sorrow.”
 Kahlil Gibran

“I said to you,
“Hold my hand.
Nothing bad will happen.”

These are only words.
A father’s tricks,
It slays your father,
your faith in him.
Because all I can think tonight is
how deep the sea,
and how vast, how indifferent.
How powerless I am to protect you from it.

All I can do is pray.”

Khaled Hosseini, Sea Prayer

“I could tell you
if I wanted to,
what makes me
what I am

..but I don’t
really want to –
and you don’t
give a damn.”

– Langston Hughes

Last night I went out once again
To ply my ancient trade.
I’ve seldom heard a word of praise
For all the love I’ve made.

.. few have ever dared to care
How love can go astray.
Most accept their lover’s fate
When love just fades away.

I have to hit two hearts at once.
It’s timing, don’t you see.
And sometimes lovers close their heart.
To all, especially me.

I’m sorry for mistakes I’ve made.
I’d surely take them back.
If only I could give you all
The love in life you lack.

But if you’ll give me one more chance.
I’ll follow every lead.
And promise to keep at my work
To find the love you need.

And when I do, I’ll string my bow,
And line my arrow true.
And then the world will see once more
What Cupid still can do. – Cupid, Greenwolfe
