When Destiny Delights

 

And so it happens,

an innocent glance,

naturally a smile,

remarkable rapport.

 

Should I dare believe

that you’re the one

my heart has waited for,

now destined to adore.

 

Come dream with me tonight,

let destiny delight.

With every kiss we pray,

true love will find it’s way.

A Most Romantic Interlude

 

Patiently we waited for that

perfect place in time,

if spontaneous or planned,

we knew it would be sublime.

 

Not wanting any of the passion

and pure rapture to subside,

only trusting that our love

would unequivocally preside.

 

In sync with the gentle rhythm

heart to heart as we embrace,

my mind delights as you tantalize

in your delicate soft lace.

 

Enamored with your silken skin

and warm sweet sighs

it’s you I desire most tonight,

as you melt into my eyes.

Nape Escape

 

Your silky skin excites

bare fragrant neck invites

my desirous heart aspires

encouraged by your smile.

 

My eager lips agree

to kiss you endlessly

forever grateful we celebrate

our love wholeheartedly.

A note from Chris

Born in Russia in 1956, Liudmila Kondakova immigrated to the United States in 1991. A graduate of the Grabar Center in Moscow, she also attended Russia’s School of Sacred Arts, the Moscow Pedagogical Institute and the Moscow Art Institute. Kondakova connects her highly trained background to her artistic expression this way: “In my art, the essence and beauty has always rested in the details.”

One might describe her style as Romantic Realism—her meticulous attention to detail allows us to become intimately involved in the life of her paintings.In the artist’s words: “To me, these streets, with their worn cobblestones and aged buildings, evoke a sense of nostalgia and romance with a touch of melancholy. It is the ideal kind of space.”
