With Love To You

With love to you... wherever you are.
My heart doth send to thee.
Rivers wide and mountains tall
Separate you from me.

Looking at pictures of you and I
Seems to bring you close.
But hearing our song being played
Brings you near the most.

I remember us dancing to that tune,
Under the shade of a tree.
That day in the park together,
Our spirits running wild and free.

Whenever I feel gloomy,
I think of you and can't help but smile.
Though it doesn't last forever,
At least it lasts for a while.

Feng Shui Good Bed, Feng Shui Bad Bed

From "Time to go to bed!" to "Shall we go to bed?" to "He is on his deathbed.." - the bed is the most used, famous and important feng shui piece of furniture in one's life.

Needless to say, feng shui-wise, a good bed is one of the most important feng shui purchases you will make for your own well-being.

What makes a great feng shui bed? Three things:

Good headboard. While you are drifting off to sleep, your body is going intro an extra busy energy repair work on many levels. Subconsciously your head needs good backing, protection and support, just like your back needs it when you are seating in a chair for extended periods of time. Best feng shui headboards are the ones that are solid and made from wood, or the upholstered ones, as they have a very good combination of solid, but also gentle and supporting feng shui energy for you and your bedroom.

Good mattress. There is a variety of mattresses on the market, choose wisely and invest in the one that will promote best sleep and relaxation. The better you sleep at night, the better your health, this is really simple.

Good height to allow for a balanced feng shui energy flow under the bed. Generally, the beds that have built-in storage drawers underneath to help you with storage solutions are considered bad feng shui beds. The energy needs to circulate around your body when you sleep, which is not possible if the space underneath the bed is blocked.

I recently bought my dream bed - an upholstered bed with a beautiful headboard and just the right height. It gives me great pleasure to look at it, sleep in it, and, needless to say, I absolutely and totally love it!

What's your bed like - is it a good feng shui bed or a bad feng shui bed?

Your Love, Your Cup of Hot Chocolate

n.b. not my poem. read it a long time ago. but to date i love it.

Give me thy love,
thy cup of hot chocolate.

For when I drink of you,
my soul is overtaken with your warmth.

When the world outside is cold,
I sip of you and the cold is turned back,
allowing your warmth to enter my body.

Sometimes the hot chocolate burns,
too hot to hold and too scorching to drink.

When I let you cool you become safe to swallow,
so I sip again of your warmth and it fills me inside.

I never let a day go by without my hot chocolate.
