My Burning Heart



My heart is burning with love
All can see this flame
My heart is pulsing with passion 
like waves on an ocean




My friends have become strangers
and I’m surrounded by enemies
But I’m free as the wind 
no longer hurt by those who reproach me




I’m at home wherever I am
and in the room of lovers
I can see with closed eyes
the beauty that dances . . .

  8. Great pictures - although the key is the centre piece, its the sand that caught my attention.

  16. Spectacular! I like the way the first shot leaves the eye no choice but to go right and away. And in all three, the foregrounds are almost as much about texture--the variety of it--as color and light. Truly remarkable, Stickup. When I see pics of oceans or sunsets/sunrises, my instant reaction is, "Oh, one more ocean, one more sunset." But these shots don't let me think that for even a second. Thanks!
