FAITH (the other side of the coin)

If I were to marry
it would surely
be springtime in England;

The birds would sing sweetly
all morning and
The sun would shine brightly
                  but ever so gently;

My feet would step lightly
on a carpet of daisies...

White as the blossom
pure as the dove,
My heart full and golden
with love.

Well captured. A whimsical fairy like effect.

That is EXACTLY how I visualize it WHEN it happens - and it will. This I know beyond a doubt.

I love your beautiful banner photo.....this is such a spectacularly photogenic planet, isnt it? And so are you!

Sherry! It is a spectacularly photographic planet - that was the south west of Ireland - Dingle - just gloriously beautiful..
Maybe I should change my imaginary wedding venue to Ireland!!

This is just so sweetly romantic a poem - it is almost like a soft ballad and needs a soft melody to go with it!
