Când Regina Nopţii îşi legăna parfumul

Regina Nopţii şi-a dezbrăcat rochia
Sub privirea întunericului.
Întunericul a cuprins-o,
Şi a înfăşurat-o într-o dezmierdare enigmatică…
Dincolo de lumina Lunii,
Dincolo de strălucirea stelelor,
Dincolo de răcoarea şoaptelor apuse,
Dincolo de el şi de tainele lui.
Şi-a desfăcut petalele
Şi s-a lăsat atinsă.
Cât parfum de iubire !

We left Brisbane during the G20 for some R&R on the Gold Coast. It’s been over 5 years since our last visit to Coolangatta. The beach is just as gorgeous as ever. Works are under way along the waterfront incorporating al fresco dining and speciality shops. This is exactly what the area needed and we are looking forward to returning once it’s all completed.

Why did the turkey cross the road?
