Amid the Shadowed Leaves the Golden Orange Glisten

"The happy bells shall ring Marguerite;
The summer birds shall sing Marguerite;
You smile but you shall wear
Orange blossoms in your hair, Marguerite."

MemorySpot: Old Times

"He said the pleasantest manner of spending a hot July day
was lying from morning till evening on a bank of heath in the middle of the moors,
with the bees humming dreamily about among the bloom,
and the larks singing high up overhead,
and the blue sky 
and bright sun shining steadily and cloudlessly."

Emily Bronte

MySpot: Sky and Sand

*Ph of me/ Dreamboy

"A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed...
It feels an impulsion...
this is the place to go now.
But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds,
and you will know, too,
when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons."

Scorched and Burnt

"He watched the early light of the new moon glint fretfully on the river (...).
The watersteps were a deserted invitation,
and he envied Hori who must surely even now be reclining on
the bottom of his skiff, Antef beside him,
their fishing lines tied to the boat (...),
which still held the warmth of the day’s heat."
