Overtones and undertones of beauty all displayed

Upon rough-tumbled mattress, here no feathered bed,

Interwoven tresses cascading onto floor,

Rumpled cloth and denim, silken-casualled lore.

Breathed in creamed complexion, undisturbed in sleep,

Portrait of simplicity, in dreamland while I peep.

Softened heart displayed on lips,

Relaxing in repose,

Daughter number two, unthorned,

Delicately dazzling rose.

  1. Very beautiful momus…they are a treasure. It’s 10.45pm here…I think I can hear a jingle in the distance, I better get me some sleep before I eat too many of those cookies 🙂
    Mind you, it’s not the cookies that are the problem, some one left a bottle of Wild Turkey Liqueur out…I’m trying to convince myself should I go ho, ho, ho or glug, glug, glug 😀
    Merry Christmas Anne-Marie, spend it with all those treasures, they grow up too soon as it is. Lots of love, Mark xo

    1. Thanks, Cole. You too. We’ve had a great day (although I think I’ll be hiring a chef in coming years or opening a restaurant!) Hope Santa brought you a lovely new laptop. 😉 x
