In the mood for you – poem by Gabriela Marie Milton
The richness of the butterscotch sunsets, heated bodies, eyes pregnant with desires, incandescent spaces between the skin & white shirts stiffed with starch, heads turned toward the sea, a rose between your teeth, doors undone, amor, the judgement day is not here, let’s die on the petals of the wind.

I’m fine. Going through strong spiritual movements on my spiritual journey. I’ve been writing a lot lately and I’m going to take up painting. How are you?
Glad to hear Joseph. Taking up painting is wonderful. I am fine too. Thank you for asking. Tired but fine.
Rest! You don’t want to burn out. Reenergize your battery. Sometimes pulling away is Ok.
I plan to do that very soon Joseph. Take care.
