Dreamy Ritual by xyldrae Dreamy Ritual by xyldrae
If darkness is so bad,
I dare you watch the stars in daylight
I dare you love less the sun…
I dare you keep your kisses to your sight
Don’t close your eyes when you make love
Gaze not at the twilight as it goes
Find no beauty in your favorite scenery
And imagine things without their shadows

It's okay since it's intended as fantasy or something. The daffodils also are unreal too, and it's my first time to produce light on a candle. I would learn from your works more of light and shadows. :) :gallery:
