Wings of Love

Wings of Love

Love was once a mystery to me.
Something I lay hidden, buried from the world.
I never thought it would show its face.
But as a caterpillar manifests itself in a small, dark cocoon, growing and developing, so did the love that was hidden inside me.
When you entered my life, I was a tiger, strong and fierce, ready to attack.
Mysterious and sharp, I hid behind the bushes, fully aware of my surroundings.
But you came and showed me that even a tiger must slowly make its way out of the bushes and through the cool crisp air of the darkened night, to quench its undying thirst.
You were my water.
You quenched my soul with your love.
You revealed a truth about life that I had so unknowingly let diminish.
I felt like a phoenix, re-born again, rising from the ashes of its despair.
I found a new lease on life, one that I had given up on.
I felt the cocoon beginning to crack from what was quickly growing inside of it.
It couldn’t be contained anymore.
The cocoon was shattered and emerged a beautiful butterfly.
Its wings were so vibrant and alive as it fluttered through the bright sunny sky, looking down at what was once its dark lonely home.
Free at last.
Its life has now begun.

This pipe with the purple lighting illuminating the water as it falls is a perfect example of purple in my opinion. Located in Chelsea Market in Manhattan. This beautiful structure resides in the Chelsea Market building that is home to a very unique shopping mall, production companies, and offices. This area brings a lot of artsy delight to the shopping area, giving its on lookers their fill of amusement.

Fifty Shades…..

The Fifty Shades Trilogy…. Imageoh my… what woman hasn’t had their fill of this book? I’m not much of a reader but after hearing so much about this book and the oh so infamous Christian Grey, I have┬ádefinitely come to see what all the fuss is about. It is a page turning, mind hooking, toe curling, choice of words, phrases, scenarios, all jumbled up into one heart clenching story. In the end it leaves you feeling like these characters have become apart of your life and I’m sure some of you have made it a priority to turn your men into your own Christian Grey, leaving them in shock, not knowing if to comply happily or become worried. In the end of all the hype, Fifty Shades is┬ádefinitely one to talk about, to keep your mind on, and to fantasize about while in a boring office meeting. Although it is author EL James’ first set of books, I am certain it won’t be her last. I am confident she will be back by a popular demand. Until then Christian Grey fans. ­čśë

The Flower of Death

The Flower of Death

The Plumeria, such a beautiful and simple flower. Who would have known throughout the world it is associated with ghosts and demons, death and funerals? I took this picture while walking to the car from our hotel room in Tampa. It instantly caught my eye. Little did I know upon doing research was its dark meaning and usage. Either way, the vibrant colors and aromatic scent that engulfs it certainly makes it anything but dark.

Tampa at Sunset

Tampa at Sunset

The best things in life are most certainly for free. This has got to be one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever experienced. Standing on the boardwalk at Clearwater Beach in Tampa, Florida, I was astonished at the beauty of this scene. It was a perfect summer evening, the water was calm and warm and the air, clean and crisp. Nature was surely at its best that night.
