Blue Lotus Love

“The Earth laughs in flowers.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson If that’s true then the flowers at the Blue Lotus Water Garden in Yarra Junction must be the happiest on the planet. Located just off the Warburton highway, barely an hour from home, I found a glorious landscape. Lakes and ponds, filled with thousands of water lilies … More Blue Lotus Love

Anticipation

Waiting Dreaming Fantasising Wild imagining like a gift still unwrapped. Tension mounts Stirrings awaken Talking and planning A delicious contemplation. Scintillating Nerve wracking Palpitations Like a deep massage an unscratchable itch. When senses collide Lustful impatience builds desire to fever pitch.

I love this time of the year. It’s spring here in Melbourne, the days are getting longer and it’s … More Think Pink

Local Love

A tenderness that starts slow dreams and visions rising high and hopes of love soar into an early morning sky. Flames of passion take hold a kiss, one question, nothing less.
