I just got back from an after-wedding-party. It was an all nighter and love was certainly in the air. Not just for the bride and groom but for everyone who attended. There was a feeling of a new day for all guests and a renewed sense of love. I guess this is why, all of a sudden, I feel so poetic. I just want to sit and write or read poetry. It's always amazing to me how a single poem can move you emotionally in a way that you don't expect it. One of my favorite poems is by Edgar Allen Poe, Annabel Lee. I love the thought that you can love someone for ever...."in a kingdom by the sea". Death is no barrier for love and life is our freedom to love.
Do you have a favorite poem? have you ever been inspired to write a poem? let me know in the comments below.
Now on to today's fun craft. I transformed this plain candle with a little embossing powder, love that stuff. Here's the plain candle:
