When someone needs,

May you be there

May you be with.

When it is you who needs,

May someone be there for you

To be with.

There is nothing more lovely

Than riding in pair

Over waves

Under skies

Skimming high

Fins in air.

Fields of Gold

You’ll remember me when the west wind moves upon the fields of barley
You’ll forget the sun in his jealous sky as we walk in fields of gold
So she took her love for to gaze awhile upon the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me, will you be my love among the fields of barley?
We’ll forget the sun in his jealous sky as we lie in fields of gold
See the west wind move like a lover so upon the fields of barley.
Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth among the fields of gold

I never made promises lightly and there have been some that I’ve broken
But I swear in the days still left we’ll walk in fields of gold
We’ll walk in fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down among the fields of gold
You’ll remember me when the west wind moves upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky when we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold, when we walked in fields of gold

Here’s the version as sang by Sting in 1993:

Six Words Are Not Quite Enough

Six words are not quite enough

For me who lengthy rhymes adore

So instead of words to doff

I’ll celebrate with six times four.

Favorite Places

There’s no place quite like it

And yet it’s more place than one

Where the surf breathes the ocean

Onto bare feet and sand.

 

 

The Photo Challenge

Invisibly Small

They can hide beneath blankets

They can scoot behind doors

They can crawl under tables.

It’s no challenge at all.

They’re a lion

A princess

A pirate,

A ball.

He has friends you can’t see.

They are there

“They’re just small.”

As you breathe in the early (too early, today)

Pinking dawn of a fresh

Brand new

Day

May it catch on the ledge of a dream

That had your soul

In its sway.
