Sweet

Sun beats down 

My mind drfits, images of you 

You broke my heart 

Yet nothing has changed 

You are the only one.

Children play

Lovers frolic at the beach 

Waves rhythmically caress the sand 

And my thoughts return

You are the only one.

Strap hanging, stealing furtive glances

Hoping to lose myself 

In those green eyes

Again

Days pass like clockwork 

You are the only one.

Move on

Move out 

Move over 

Renew

Endless words given 

Like inappropriate birthday presents

Nothing ever changes

You are the only one

For me.

In a Ballerina’s Shadow.

In your gaze
I am caught.

Transfixed
As you move and float
Towards me.

The sun has bathed you
In its light
Illuminates
Your beauty
As it
Reaches for me.

Did I feel you
As we passed
A gentle caress
Upon my face
Your shadow
Seemingly dancing
Filling me
Completely.


Forest Sunset

Hidden away
From the bright lights
You let your fingers
Trace thoughts and feelings.

Your words flow
As lightening crashes
Faces
Eyes
Expressions
Illuminated by you.

Wanting
Anticipating the moment
Waiting
With impatience
The world paces.

A collective exhale
Celebrates
Who you are
And each one
Walks away with
Smiling
Clutching
A word
Of you.


A Minstrel’s Song For Ealhswith.

Sunshine
Beckons and tempts
I stir
I fidget
Closing my eyes
As I bask in its light
Feel its warmth
Outside and inside
Filling me
This summer sun whispers
Echoes my wants
Renews my desires
Knowing my promises.

 

Open arms
Finger-tips feeling the moving air
Wanting that light touch
To be your face
Longing to open my eyes
And see you before me
Your smile that envelops me
Keep me safe
Makes me feel so very special.
Stepping outside
I am with you
Walking these hallowed streets and avenues
Past and present artists
Smile and nod
As if knowing
Our oneness
Defines our being
And that our love is pure
Echoed one day
By family and friends
As our beautiful day
Will be filled with th same sun
That waits for me now
As I open my eyes.

Reflection

Others Regret and Folly
Impinge upon me
While I look
In all the right places
For support.

Transient figurines
Glance and snicker
Pointed fingers
Gnarly now
From years
Of bitterness and jealousy.

Such an invitation
Firmly refused.

Strident steps
As I open their curtains
Blackness retreats and hides
Loathsome stares
As sunshine and light
Empower and replenish.

For Love
Is never-ending.


Rituals of Love

Excited chatter
Surrounds You.
Words echoing
Throughout
From Friends
And Lovers
Alike.

Intoxicating
Mesmerizing
A gentle caress
Pulls you closer
Leaves you
Gasping
Reaching deep inside
As each touch
Lights up
Throughout your body.

Stroking
Fingers
Entwined lips
Each explore
Bodies
A canvas
Nothing left undiscovered
Secrets revealed
Desires satiated
Together as one.

Yearning
Arched backs
Tell the story
As emotions
Release and flood
Together 
Immersed 
Each world
Now as one.


Temptation or Redemption

Under a clear blue sky
Squinting to make out forms and images.
Meandering,
No rush,
This path is dictated by the ebb and flow.

Water shimmering beneath me
Offering,
Temptation or Redemption
Just so cool to touch
Refreshing both soul and body
Together.
