The Intensity of Flux

The Intensity of Flux

The Intensity of Flux The passage of life, as it blunders along, With the constant of change, and fears that belong, To the twists and the turns of each passing day, It just ebbs and it flows as each day rolls away.

Colours of You

Colours of You

Colours of You  The yellow of sunshine rises in your smile. Blood red passion at thoughts of us entwined. The green freshness of spring in our love. But blue I am blue when I am away from you.   The colour of moonlight shining in your hair. Aqua depths in your eyes. And a magenta glow in your cheeks.
