i'd think of you

If I should think of love 
I'd think of you, your arms uplifted, 
Tying your hair in plaits above, 
The lyre shape of your arms and shoulders, 
The soft curve of your winding head. 
No melody is sweeter, nor could Orpheus 
So have bewitched. I think of this, 
And all my universe becomes perfection. 
But were you in my arms, dear love, 
The happiness would take my breath away, 
No thought could match that ecstasy, 
No song encompass it, no other worlds. 
If I should think of love, 

I'd think of you.

the sky is falling

"Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return"

- Leonardo da Vinci

taking the plunge

to take the plunge, to accept risk is to seek a quality of life not freely handed out.  It's climbing to the top of the apple tree for the choicest fruits.  In due time, the more one risks the more enjoyment and pleasure they find in it.  I believe T.S. Eliot said it best.

"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."

- T. S. Eliot
