Light Dance  .  Duet, with Suthern

Pearls of morning
glow with an inner radiance,
sing the gentle suspense of dawn
before our sunrise finds
these summer hills.

We've never seen this place
and yet here is the morning,
music brings our hearts here,
as it calls to light a far land
of stars and hills of green.

Moon shimmers its farewell
in a silken slide to the horizon
as wind whispers anticipation
of a day that’s never been.

Our feet do not move
and yet we dance the miracle
of shadows yielding,
through a mist that glistens
in softest pastel hues.

With rustling feathers
birds begin to waken,
singing their celebration,
their tiny voices a hymn
of welcome to the day.

Hands find hands,
the path begins to call us
down along the hillside,
to where it slips from sight,
lost in the heather and daisies.

If we walk down now,
while an edge of sungold
reaches toward us over the ridge,
we can hold this magic for a moment,
carry sunrise with us as we go.

Come with me then, walk
the meadow of this music,
dance within the morning song
of a land our hearts hold always,
though we’ve never seen.

Superbly done.  Couldn't tell where one of you ended and the other began...

Congrats on the co-lab!

WOW!!  Beautiful duet you two!
Very much enjoyed.
~Hugs to you both~

For it was not into my ear you whispered
But into my heart
It was not my lips you kissed
But my soul

Hi Suthern gal....I was thinking pretty much the same about you. You may be shy, but you're darn good -- and you have good taste in music, by the way....witness this!

Don't let her fool ya, folks, she's a breeze to write with....and more than held up her end of this one!

Yes, ... this is a seamless, beauty indeed...so many lovely image wrapped expressions...but what made them so enjoyable is that they are softly and subtely done...giving this a romantic, ethereal essence. A lovely two step...du-et again.

jwesley: That's because he's both a great writer AND great editor! LOL Believe me... when we started this, my lowly contributions stuck out like sore thumbs! *G* Thank you very much! *S*

Martini: Thank you so very much! *S* I don't think there can be a greater compliment for a duet. *S*

Enchantress: Thank you so very much, kind lady... I'm so glad you enjoyed! *S*

Magnus: From your mouth to God's ears, please! LOL Thank you so very much! *S*

Martie: Thank you! *S*

Midnitesun: You can't know how glad I am this gave someone a smile... thank you very much! *S*

JM: Thank you so very much, my friend. *S* I know anyone dueting with me needs a valium prescription... I'm so glad my running feet didn't stomp all over it. *S*

Susan Caldwell: Thank you! *S*

GS: Thank you, sweet lady... I'm glad you liked! *S*

PS: I wanted to try and was terrified to do so. *S* Thank you so very much! *S*

Jamie: Thank you again for the privilege. *S* I know you've had better partners... but none more grateful. *S* And while it took us a while to get to the posting stage... it's appropriate for this week... even if  my leprechaun deservedly got the boot! LOL

this is simply lovely - can lose myself in the strong and enticing visuals and the feel of connection -
