Ritual Gold


sparkling waters meld with  the sun

in an effortless symbiosis…

the dance begins

as an eternal solar waltz…

sliding to and fro over

the glimmering wetness…

Moving with an elegance

befitting these primal lovers…


with an aching crash,

the sun dives deep…

cooling and refreshing..

twisting and turning…

born again many fathoms down..

only to climb back up

step by golden step..

 back to its throne…

set to rule another day

from the eternal

land of

the living..

      • I can relate there … I was not even planning to write when I began blogging….a fellow-blogger asked me to try my own quotes (she liked my writing in my story/about pages)… and then I realized what you are expressing – the photos do inspire and spark the pen. Wonderful and do Love Ritual Gold ~ Have a wonderful weekend and Father’s Day David 🙂
