Heart

Simply put but oh. so true.

Present Tense in Europe

When one feels good or when misunderstood
The heart cries more than the eyes ever could!

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #27

come-dance-in-may

A silly young girl from Lynton

took a stroll across the meadow for fun

but her shorts were miniscule,

she took off her blouse to keep cool
