I see your starlight shining.
With each smile, you light up more.
The night skies can’t resist you,
for your face they so adore.
I see your starlight shining.
Your eyes, like stars above,
are gracing me with sparkles
of your abounding love.
I see your starlight shining,
and others see it too.
Shine, my jewel, forever,
like stars in heaven do!

beauty, courage, beauty, beauty,
Over the hill,
Though still her beauty resounding
Over the hill,
As seven notes of music thrill,
The seventh beauty astounding,
Seven of ten still abounding,
Over the hill,
In 'Light of Love,
Replenish, finish and refine,
In 'Light of Love,
Fits aptly in Guzzi glove,
Poetess is one of a kind,
My patience tried by every line,
In 'Light of Love,
Dedicated to Debbie Guzzi, still a
lovely lady, tho I believe she has
admitted she is past 60. Happy sailing

Stars take flight, in the darkness of night!
The sun’s shadow echo’s, there is light!
Embossed in nature, bright colors abounding!
The mountains, valleys and canyons, astounding!
Moon beams illuminate, the vast deep blue!
And exploits of love and grace, trickle through!
Victory, hope, death defeated!
In Christ completed!
“God bursts everywhere”

I am drifting into memories.
Wasting away like a million photographs fading in the sun-
In ceaseless renewal,
Staining the depths of my eyes with images
In the minds shutter ever fluttering to infinity,
Stringing together this conscious stream I play in.
My stupendous world made of dust and space
Tightrope walking existence!
Chance so scarcely gracing our atoms with a single touch
In a place so lonely when counted,
Yet so abounding when felt!
So dance in the dust
Poised miles above the earth
Prance on your stilts,
And peek into the great valleys beneath her skin.
Because any moment we could vanish

~In Your Holy Name~
(A Prayer Style Poem)
May your abounding peace love our house fill
And no evil anywhere causes us ill
May all grow closer to you more each day
Let's not be rash in everything we do
Let laughter and joy walk with them and me
Let love shine for us all and always be
O Lord vanish from hearts, minds all that's wrong
Let love and peace reign and live like a song
Dear Lord help us grow more in your wisdom
And please heal every day our hearts and qualms

anxiety, conflict, dark, emotions, stress,
Hurt, fear, loss, and love
The toxic emotions of what once was
Truth, lies, deceit, and greed
Feed the angst and the need
Sorrow, anger, spite, and pride
Make the soul die more inside
With confusion abounding I seek solutions
To rid my mind of its pollution

love, romance, love,
Starry-eyed young lady with spellbinding
Voice skillfully drew him in
Spirited in nature with love abounding
He longed to touch her silken skin
Slowly the tangled love web she did spin
Sunny disposition as bright as sunny day
Shimmering in moonlight she danced to him
Smoldering emotions she held at bay
Smart is she, sophisticated, and a lady
Superb talents, calm, and steadfast
He found that she was supportive ready
Definitely one who is an enthusiast
Sweet and charming joyful to brim
Surprising that she won him with a hymn

devotion, happiness, love, passion, peace, people, uplifting,
In glistening raindrops
On shimmering cottonwood leaves
Dancing in a gentle,
Warms and glows
Like a chilly winter
Evening’s camp fire
On a frozen mountain top,
Caressing mind and soul
And body like a radiant purr
Is brilliant diamonds,
Joy unleashed, unfettered,
Abounding in jubilant freedom and
Utterly opulent luxury

celebration, christian, christmas,
Christ is the reason we celebrate`Christmas
Home is important for the heart
Rejoice! Relive and revive.
Into the sky and quiet we see the star of Guiding lights
Shining on faces of the believers
Trusting forward to the new night and day
Celebration of heart and mind
Eternal days and tranquility
Love abounding shine on
Everlasting peace no more little critic
Brains renewed for perfection
Rejoice, Relive and revive
Anchored to the salvation of our lives
Through the mighty grace of God
Israel's promise through Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
Oh Glory and honor; praise from heavenly host
New life, everlasting life

death, faith, life, loss, mother, philosophy, recovery from...,
Burgeon within her grace
For soon your eyes shall open
To the wondrous truth abounding
For you now hold the key
In mourning we stand bewildered
How can we truly comprehend
The divinity of pure freedom
Granted to such a miasmic soul
A passing of love and strife
Upon this ever turning wheel
Molting from your human shell
Transformed to seraphic star light
You laughing spirit soaring high
Risen above the anguished sorrow
Mending the aching tortured heart
Rest in that eternal grace
Soon the moment will rise
When I embrace you
And envelop within your spirit
by white sage |
Here is a place of mixed feelings, passions so high
Manipulating judgements, so blind, can't exactly say why
Such emotions so formidable, making you laugh even as you cry
Veiling your views, covering your perceptions, Oh what of such dye
A world of reality so fictitious, illusions so real, a land where hearts never die
Abounding wealth of passions and sentimental, a course on how you try
With achievements of yields in even seasons so dry
With its first touch making the soul engulfed in infatuations like meat in a pie
Affecting the mind, bringing such thoughts, telling the heart any possible lie
Racing beats of the heart through thousands miles

beauty, happiness, life, love, passion, romance, romantic, summer, summer, summer,
The fragrance of love is like...............
The smell of summer harvested strawberries
a field of lavender gently swaying in breeze
the aroma of freshly cut grass
the salty air of the sea.
Roses in full bloom
clean mountain air
freshly made bread
a newly made bed.
A meadow abounding with wild flowers
the earthy odour of cooling summer rain
the aroma of vanilla
The smell of alpine forest pine
a scented candle flame........................

love, nature, romancegreen, love,
I fell in love beneath an emerald cloud,
beside the trunk that held its green in place.
Whenever we approached, it gently boughed,
and it kept cool my lover's lovely face.
It never cried, unlike its whitened kin,
nor did it change its hue when skies were gray,
though there were times it could not bear the wind,
but rest assured--it floats there still today.
It floats there still, all green above the brown,
though it was smaller when I saw it last.
My wife was fond of its abounding gown,
and oh so grateful to its wooden cast.
I thus engraved our love upon its bark,
as she had done so deeply on my heart.

faith, inspirational, religion, me, me,
the giver of peace comes and rescued me from all sin that taunts me daily
from all the demons that try to control me
from all the people who try to mold me.
Cover me with your abounding grace and tender mercies
that light this place to warn off all those evil thoughts
that want me to love my neighbors (not!)
Cover me and keep me covered
even when I don't act like I want you too
when i've seem to forgotten all you did and will do
cover me Lord and hide me from myself
the biggest enemy i have yet
cover me so that i can grow
into what you predistine so many years ago

Responsive allegation as to monetary swing
the soul annunciation ferrets bring,
more of consenting, more of svelte ring,
more of resenting, more up bring!
Once analyzed the nuisance' ring
more idolized to more re string
as memories rebound, not fatal thing,
what more has brought to wondering!
God's purpose all abounding need not cringe,
all searching, and all finding everything
are in His answers, rivaling fates King
I need not more the flighting, but to sing ~
. . . that chance of love inviting ~ restoring!
by Patrick Parks |
softer than butter
melting through your honey skin
closer than bodies can touch
wrapping around your perfect heart
then diving in
to the pool of fire
by the ocean of love
that is you
abounding and astounding
and in your every move
I see a dance
beckoning me to step
into your life and stay
long enough to know
the eternity of love
that has always been
and will always be
anytime two hearts
should dare to kiss
by cortney bartholomew |
emotions, heart, heaven,
honored in all respects of love, cherished in truth and beauty,
with praise that resignates in echoed rejoice, abounding in your magnitude and glory,
the reality thought here is illusion to there, spectrums of hearts revealed,
here only in part the pages to be read, the portions our hearts here conceal,
your encompassed love surrounds its room, broadened with intensity to see,
connections weigh beyond our eyes seen here, a sewn in pattern at the seam,
indescribable love with no language or words, in the heart stands the open room,
unlike the logic we know or see here, valued in love beyond what we assume.

Sometimes We take for granted what should be there,
The people that always care
We face our challenges to get by
Even if it means we all have to cry
No one said life would be easy
Some obstacles are going to be rough
All it means is you have to stay tough
If your on my side its not so bad
You give me a shoulder to cry on when I am sad
No matter what we go through, in truth I can't be mad
Some days are a surging tide
We face each one with abounding pride
Even, if our opinions should collide
Theres a lot of love in what we do
It means we are family through and through

appreciation, blessing, god, inspirational, jesus, spiritual, thanksgiving,
My LORD God, I verily thank* You so much
Your love, grace, and mercy are abounding in my life...
Tenaciously, You uphold me daily with Your tenderness
Hoisting my faith toward good works’ performance
Assuring me Your approval midst adversaries’ accusations
Nourishing me with Your nurturing sufficiency-contentment
Knocking down my doubts and unbelief
Securing me with Your salvation might
Generously You bless my spirit
Innumerably and incessantly providing
Vanquishing my vanity-driven pursuits
Nestling my mind around Your wisdom
Granting me generously; You’re my shepherd, I shall not want.*
Psalm 18:49 Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD...

Be firm, steadfast and strong,
Abounding in faith, hope, and love;
Get it on and redouble the effort,
striving for the prize from above.
Only the finishers of the race,
Not the backsliders will take
God's promised crown of life
on the day when things are in place.
Start asking God to turn the night
Into morrow's beautiful morn;
Let the new day begin,
dawning for the sad and forlorn.
As the waiting is not over yet,
Never give up the fight;
Get up on your feet,
for the new dawn will shine so bright.

freedom, heaven, inspirational,
The Perennial Prayer
First the recognition
of one's hallowed identity..
experiencing the wholeness
and abounding love..
Then new recognition
of the real creation
within and made of
earth and heaven..
This new birthing
of life on earth
still needing bread and
for our forgetting..
Recognizing ego's slyness
to fill new identity
leading to temptation..
with peace and joy:
The Kingdom already
Here and Now...

for her, love, valentines day,
Much Passion aroused
Young Love overwhelming
Vibrant Hearts entwined,
Able Bodies contorting
Loves Rhythmic motions
Earthy Heat rising
Now Lips compelling
Two Hands roaming
In Arms enfolding,
Nubile Legs extending
Loving Tongues exploring
Deep searching as their
Youthful Hearts catch fire

S-tart to know who your friends are,
A-re they obedient to God's commands?
R-etain those who are faithful,
A-nd those who have clean
K-now who your friends are,
A-re they abounding in love?
Y-ou must keep those who are kind,
E-specially those who fear God above.
M-ay you know who your friends are,
A-re they positive thinkers?
R-eserve those who are optimistic,
C-herish them with quote and verse.
O-n the eighteenth of November, evade those who are bizarre;
S-incerity is hard to find, know who your friends are.
