Happy Valentines Day all you dancers! Shall we dance?

Simply Gemini

dance

Listening to the radio

Our favorite song plays

I look at him

and he says..

”shall we dance?”

Of course I oblige

I always do

”There is not much I adore more

than dancing with you”

Strolling through town

on a sunny day

The street players singing

and you say

”shall we dance?”

My lover and I

dance every day

Under the night moon

and the light of the day

Wrapped in his arms

My head on his chest

My dancing lover

Is surely the best

Stunning display of poppies at The Tower of London

I had chance to spend a few days in London last week and hearing about the poppies I had to go see them for myself.

Each poppy represents a soldier who lost their life in the Great War, which Britain entered 100 years ago this month.

I was very moved at the sight.

You can buy one of these beautiful ceramic poppies for £25 and the proceeds will go towards six service charities.  Please click here Buy a poppy .

The photo’s were taken by myself.

I walked into work naked and no one said a thing.  I had deadline to meet by lunchtime and a conference call and then I could go home to get dressed.  Why on earth did I leave home with no clothes on? 

 

Lunchtime came and I met my deadline.  I set off walking to the car park and then the stares and the jeering began.  I was a freak show and the only thing I could do was to face the wall, until I was invisible. I was at last in my own private world, my dream world.

 

I do have the strangest dreams!

“Anne Boleyn was rather tall of stature, with black hair and an oval face of sallow complexion, as if troubled with jaundice. She had a projecting tooth under the upper lip, and on her right hand, six fingers. There was a large wen under her chin, and therefore to hide its ugliness, she wore a high dress covering her throat.” – Nicholas Sander “The Rise and Growth of the Anglican Schism”.

Is she beauty?

Or is she beast?

The one who stole his heart

Her soul as dark as her veil

Yet her voice as sweet as a lark

Henry the VIII second wife

The one who bewitched the King

A mystery never to be solved

The mystery of Anne Boleyn
