Come Walk With Me

Dedicated to my dad who made my life full of magic and taught me the love of nature. “Come daddy, come”, she gleefully shouted and reached up for his hand. Her small fingers intertwined with his and she leaned forward trying to make him walk faster. She didn’t want to miss fairies. “Sweetie we can stop right here.

The wind can smell her sweet aroma  teasing him to come and see what she has found. With such force he comes to a clearing and stops as he sees the delightful breeze touching the skin of a man asleep in the lush grass. He … Continue reading Summer Love
