Grief escapes me,
As I wade into
The shallow pool.

Muscles tense
To relaxation-
Mind goes numb.

All feeling shed
From my skin,
Fingers tingle
From sudden warmth-
Eyes drift to close.

This steady sensation-
Must be peace…



 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

Gulp - skinny dipping with the everlovely devina - blast you, Marge!  Look at all the havoc you caused with that post, and... and.... darn you, devina - look at all the havoc you caused with that response!

Why oh why, Lord?  Why did I have to be this virile man????


(Now.  Is that a setup for Toerag, or what?)  lol

Devina~

Well, I'd say you've stirred up the
makings of a GREAT party !
I like ... count me in !

And judging from the responces,
I'd safely assume the invitations
will include :
James Parker~
LngJohn~
and Sven~
I'm pretty sure Balladeer will join in !  
ANYONE ELSE CARE TO JOIN US AT DEVINA'S ?
GIRL .... YOU ROCK !

You thought you could sneak this one by me when I was preoccupied, didn't you.  The only thing I like more than walking in the rain would be swimming at night.  Though I can't recall any of my midnight swims being so, uh, stimulating...LOL  Big Sigh - you know, I bet if I dig that old telescope out of the closet I could see your house from mine.  Care to go swimming again tonight?

Devina. . . I think that I have a lake in mind. . .do you mind?

Look for it. . . and the lighthouse. . .

And do you mind if we're alone?

Nothing like a midnight swim to show a person tranquality.....but D...if you're inviting all these people, especially a few of the more anxious guests (MIcahel, Sven, LJA and Parker) I think you better forgo the idea of peace
