Flaming Grace

passions, cresting waves divine
this the pulsing heart of mine
a sea of fire and light 
beyond shadows vast
the ebb and flow of flaming grace
in love's caress be cast.

    Love to you

  2. Gail, I have not read, "Fifty Shades of Gray," but have heard that it is fire and passion... do you suggest that I put it on my reading to do??

  3. HI ROSEMARIE - it is quite controversial. I was overtaken by the characters and story line all wrapped up in a struggle of past influences and desires/needs which often played out horribly in power and sex. I was able to look at and explore my own soft limits and hard limits and was really driven and excited to do so. The book brought hidden passions to the surface - it was amazing. It is very provoking, not the best writing style but it is very powerful in its intent and ability to challenge. I read all three and was thrilled by the story line above and beyond all the sexual content. Hope my critique helped :-) And dare I say, whilst my Mom was in a Hospice room and slowly passing over and during the services and for a week after I could not read the books because it felt, well, it just didn't feel right. That's how intense the books are!!
    Love to you
