Most of you that follow along this little adventure know by now that I love renovations – the more complicated and challenging, the better. Cost is no object – time is not a concern.
But really when you clear all the sawdust, the tools and debris – when everything is painted and arranged just so… all you have is a house, nothing more than just some walls and a roof and a shiny thing or two. It’s only when you add love does it really become a home.
I love the puzzle of the hollows and valleys of our bodies ~
how they fit together as we sleep.
The sweet sensation of the being ~
the texture and contour of your skin as you
lay beside my soul.
How bones and flesh contain the one so dearly loved ~
and the comfort given, as touched in the still of night.
Words fail to express that which lies within so deep ~
the touch of heaven that lays beside me,
each night, as we sleep.
With love, Curt
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.
