If I was a time of day, I would be twilight in Summer.

If I was a season, I would be Autumn. I would give you crisp mornings, warm afternoons and mellow evenings.

If I was a gem, I would be Opal. Flash and colour, never the same face, never dull, ever changing.

If I was a flower I would be a rose. A climbing rose always reaching for the sun, nectar for bees, the beginning of honey.

If I was music I would be lilting, timeless, on the wind.

If I was light, I would be starlight, distant still, sparkling close, unreachable.

If I was a fabric I would be silk velvet, warm, soft, sensual.

If I was a scent I would be rain on parched ground.

If I was a landscape I would be a riffling stream across worn pebbles, shaded by willows, sheltering life.

If I was God I would start again and make man's first sense......empathy.

First sense? Surely you're not implying that the human race has any sense at all?

Lovely JahTeh. Lovely.

If God had've had sense he'd have given us an allergy to apples.

Feel free to grab the meme if you please Caroline. Doesn't have to be these, any will do.

might be that empathy was our first sense.

we ought to try and discover what wrung it out of us.

[I won't pass the meme on but enjoyed your edition.]

#11 random thing.

"If I was a carpenter ("Don't call me Joseph, Shirley!)
And you was a lady, (as if!!)
Would you marry me anyway?
Would you have my baby?"

So Coppertop, do you want to have my baby jeebus? (Meet you round the back of the stable at cock's crow.)
