CARMEN

Can a child ever forget, how deep a mother’s love abides

All those days since birth, till now I’m grown she guides

Remembering her smile, so tender, so warm as her embrace

More than soothes away my pain, my fear of failure and disgrace

Even in my dreams she comforts, her voice, her scent would stay

Never will her being mother stop, till when I’m old and gray.

The Wily Thorn

The wily thorn that signifies the rose
abides; some hapless fool will come along
untutored in the art of willful pose
to grasp, and sustain a sharp reminder!

His gift bestowed and modestly attended,
there stirs a trembling only she may know
whose pledge is true and joyfully intended,
first semblance of a passion soon to grow.

How powerful beauty's lure can be!
it supersedes, and pricks the heart to bleed,
and captured in its snare they're led
on rapture's path, where'er that path may lead.

''I longed for love--love pure like driven snow'' re-revised

I longed for love—love pure like driven snow,
untouched and virgin—in the years to come:
but years did come and go until (O woe!)
it, like the fall, decayed in my autumn.
Heartbroken, never I a princess met
or maiden girl with whom to spend long nights
of ardent love. (Alas! best to forget
my heart's too foolish hopes of its delights.)
Unstained by sin, naïve and innocent;
unspoil'd by life and vice in the very least:
I cast'd aside my youth's prurient bent,
forswore my loins' lusts and was my own priest!
     Now aged and useless, I've denied all love;
     thus life's reproach abides and won't approve.

Bereft

And ever above,
clouds of sorrow
assemble in thunderous ranks:
a surfeit of threat
and gloom.

And ever below,
unhappy footsteps
surrender rhythm
to unyielding pavement—
against a gray and endless plain.

Who but a fool
dreams that sorrow
can be bartered
for kindness and love?
The beggared soul abides.

And, in his eyes,
the ashen world
grows, blurs and overflows
to run down his cheeks.
And it rains.

Assurance - to my daughter

There passes not a single day
when I do not think of you, or pray
that God's love, steadfast and true,
covers, protects, and abides with you.
And while life's hardships still do come
and the burdens become wearisome,
when uncertainties threaten or scare
and you need help, I'll be there
for I love you more than words can say,
as I have loved you from your first day.

Endless Summer

The hot, autumn sun
spills effulgent;
dark branches, roused,
glow lustrous as blue day.

Burgeoning trees
cling to verdant leaves
denying impending
vermillion days.

Summer's love abides,
warming laggard blooms
under the flowing fern.

Summer will stay for now;
Winter patiently waits
to renew the ripe world.

Intimate Sonnet

Nothing is more intimate than the eyes
To pursue love in the depth of round orbs 
Then descend as invitation complies
To find a softer realm love can absorb
The truest distance is measured between
When our eyes warmly meet in their silence
As honored guests ushered when eyes convene
With due respect and sense of compliance
Aware of love's status with eyes open
A welcomed gesture we gave without fear
We'll enter with a sense of wealth again
And find truth is held worthy to revere

When eyes answer with sensual replies
Nothing is more intimate that abides

For My Child




Laughter bursting on the patio
Kites lifted through summer air;
A tenderness given by heaven
My child, this is where love abides.
Even as we play hide-and-seek,
The affection can be profound
As we watch each other grow
In deeper meaning of sweet unity.

Whether it be jar of marbles or tears
Such moments hold us dearer;
By simply recognizing this oneness
Crowned by tinkerbell stars.
Let's walk along the byways
Your polka -dot blouse tugging mine
With patches of cotton candy,
My child, this is where happiness abides.

HOME

When fire dies, it remains ash, cover it up
When the day dies, new day shows up
When husband rest, leaves a sowed love
Widow cries, dwells with grieve
And loneliness
"He has slept, he forever sleeps"
A countless times, she vends
And at the buttock, she feels the world
And the need to go with him raises up
Unreturned journey lacks partnership
The sowed love dies not
Abides within loves heart.

She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not

If love content abides
In myriad hearts and different worlds
Then, I inquire to "understanding", why?
It is stranded in hole of other universe
Beneath changing reason's cloudy skies
Where night and day tears run the rivers course 
Neither you or I do choose with whom, or plane we fall upon
When moonstruck by its kinetic force
And there we live betwixt dimensions joy and pain 
Within love's bubbling stream, ever contemplating the birthing of its source
Surrounded by an empty meadow
...She loves me, she loves me not
And so I shall consider

Inherited Spirit

A good spirit in him abides
From birth his dispostion same
Nice, gentle character inside
A spirit born with love aflame

A spirit born with love aflame
Others born without good character
Only through rebirth good proclaim
Become great traits inheritor

Become great traits inheritor
Spread an awesome Spirit of love
Expand pure  like honey's nector  
Not only once but always think of

In the Closet

His heart is silent.
He speaks no more
  of things and scenes that went before,
  before he knew who hides.
In the closet he still abides.

He never sings or speaks sweet words.
He just stands there in the dark
  watching and waiting like a hungry shark.

Someday he'll look in the mirror
  and see the one he always knew.
He'll love and accept him.
He'll start anew.

When that day comes I'll still be here
   smiling and waiting to wipe each tear.
I'll say, "I love you no matter what."
"Just be happy. Don't give up."

Tell Me

Tell Me

Tell me somewhere there’s joy that’s waiting
laughter, people celebrating.
Victory for all of those that’s crying
that’s loving someone dead or dying.

Tell me there are restful hearts
where beauty in all its splendor starts.
Where children laugh and run and play
with angels watching night and day.

Tell me there is peace on earth
come to us a virgin birth.
Where all is well and nothing’s wrong
where choirs raise their voice in song.

Tell me there’s someplace to turn
when there’s no lessons left to learn.
Please tell me God abides up above
Tell me somewhere there is love.

A Place Where Love Abides

There is a place where love abides;
Where hearts know not fears.
Come and join by my side;
Let me wipe away your tears.

Trust and take my hand;
Have faith in humankind.
Be you here or in a foreign land;
We shall leave no one behind.

Unite, Warriors of the Rainbow;
To create a world that is fair.
Let our numbers rise and grow;
Please form a circle prayer.

With one common quest;
We are not so different, you and I.
Let all lands from east to west;
Be a place where love abides.

Dreamer's Ride

Like a train passing
with lights all aglow
you speed through
my dreams
from where
memories flow
Into the clouds
we enjoy the ride
leaving the rails
of earth behind
No cloudbanks
can hinder 
this unearthly ride
for in our spirits
true love ever abides.
No stops along
this wondrous trip
until come morning
when dreams 
end, dismissed
and recall finds me
in waking bliss.

Grin & Bear

He who abides in me,
                          and I in him,
                                      he it is that
                                               bears much fruit !
  Fill His basket up over the rim,
 Showering your Love onto Him !
Reflect on immortal thoughts,
Envelop ; seal the wild hearts !
 
Christ : The Tree ~ connects us as a cord.
Work gleefully as unto Him ~ The Lord !
Grin and bear...
He who abides in me,
                    and I in him,
                                 he it is that
                                             bears much fruit !

Dark Road

I took the dark road from the spot
Where joy, my heart abides
It must have been my fate less lot
To have to say goodbyes

From where joy, my heart abides I go
This parting is enough
To fill my heart with grief and sorrow
As now I leave my love

This parting is enough though we
Will meet up yet again
For in a day or so we'll see
Each other once again

We'll meet up yet again and soon
And hold each other close
With every sun and every moon
Our love will ever grow

Life is a Healing Journey

The heart above all things, most fragile,
     bears all things.
So easily wounded when past scars beckon;
Unhealed, unreckoned.
Reminding me;
     of life’s journey past,
     awaiting to be healed,
     forgiveness to be sealed.

Forgiveness must allow
     the healing that I wish.
For the heart above all things, most fragile;
     bears all things where love abides,
     when healing does reside.

Today, an opportunity not to miss
     the healing that I wish.
So, ABBA, forgiveness I release
     so healing will replace,
     and love most precious will abide
     when forgiveness does reside.

Bittersweet


The strain of separation leaves a sore,
sorrow abides and festers in the heart;
two star-crossed lovers smitten to the core,
despairing of the days they'll spend apart.
Spirit, soul and testament they share,
blind to worldly consequences, broken
by the distance in between, for where'er
their footsteps fall each retains a token.
Two rings confirm a union true and bold;
connubial bliss that will not e'er be stilled
though time and tide would try to break the mold,
a fire undying, passion unfulfilled.
   The day will shortly dawn to soothe the strain,
   and end their bleak despondency and pain.

Within her heart

Within her heart  

Within her heart, lies truth and honesty
a treasure trove of kindness, all for me

Within her heart, resides strength and integrity
her matchless qualities, endear her to me.

Within her heart, abides true love and affection
I love her even more with every intimate connection.

A Verse for Orange and Green

Honey-colored wonder, seeking a sight out of the green Wondering upon the illusions of the ground with thrill Tasting the heat of the soil from some hands that gently planted To the clay of the earthen past and wishes that tomorrow be granted. Way along the pathwalk…her leaves of neon spread out joy and laughter Until the morning comes to touch her face with love When thanksgiving in fall, re- connects time set apart Commence oh heart and sing a ‘jack-o-lantern’ song of glee As if love abides between time and distance…..and embraces you and me.

THOUGHTS



Time and space fill the moments here;
Hurl feisty poise as joy moves zest;
Obey that will in message clear;
Urge then fond choice in this life quest;
Glimpse then that surge where peace abides;
Hope frames a name as faith decrees;
Truth feeds an urge on either side;
Seek neither fame nor grand plenty.
Align the feel with what you say;
Sense the surreal wave that surrounds;
Prime and reveal life's poignant play;
Ink stains now spill in shady grounds;
Reach then a state where the love streams;
Enter the gate of vibrant dreams.
