Just Imagine Living In A Shell


just imagine living inside a sea shell with your love just imagine catching a glimpse of the moon rising over the sea at twilight and later lifting your eyes to a sky full of stars diamonds strewn on black velvet just imagine being cocooned in curves taking a bath in a hollow under a shell fountain just imagine going to sleep to the sound of the ocean’s breath waking to the same sound and glimpsing azure through a curved space feeling the gentle caress of the sea breeze on your skin just imagine the touch of your lover's hand in yours as you go padding out in bare feet past the private pool and down to the sand feeling it between your toes just imagine knowing that this sand has travelled and been shaped for eternity just imagine pausing to examine gifts of shells and corals

Hi Chrisy, what a lovely shell dream house!! Perfect for a little it must be located near the sea so that an authentic ocean sound gently soothes the resident into sleep...especially if that resident were me!! <3

Ohhhh..I could use a week or two (or year or two lol) there :)

Renee said...

Beautiful as always Chrisy.

Love Renee xoxo

Living is a shell would be kind of nice but I imagine simply being YOU Chrisy would be even more fun! I'd like to live in your head!
