Passion's Decree

Strokes of color lyrical and bold
With line and form quest be told
Hold to this moment of need and desire
Portray the knowing, the passion, the fire
Hush not the refrain of glory's plea
Paint, brush, color, heed passion's decree.

  4. Hi Rose Marie-
    Your painting and your words are so passionate and powerful. I sense myself, lost in the desired images and deep passions of wondrous lust. A lust that only two truly knowing souls can create and explore with dignity.

    Love to you
