Laminated Love


Frozen flames pressed 
between each page; 
suddenly, I felt each passing note.
The painting on the wall began to breathe	
gently the same colors repeated life. 
I was so close; I felt every vibration 
and there underneath the gloom, 
the roof let in the luminance of the moon.	
A memory unfolded while I held your hand,	
repainting our years, a devoted love
at the heart of everything. Steam is drawn 
from our hands. The canvas, 
the beautiful canvas, tied by solid green-gold.
Flames-brushed each wall as ageing you and I.	
In perfect harmony. TOGETHER

Black Sunday {Personification in Couplet form}

I was as high as the eyes could see
A giant dark cloud of pure misery

I seemed to roll as one with the wind
A giant black wall that had no end

I stripped the land and left it bare
Of the lives I destroyed, I didn’t care

Those who stayed I covered in dust
As their children died I broke their trust

From my hell many families did flee
Left to wander homeless in misery

I changed the word these words are true 
Black Sunday brought darkness on you

I didn't see any direct link but just goggle
pictures of the dust bowl and you will see
what i have written for Brian's Contest.
The Dust Bowl - Alexandre Hogue - 1937

Her innocence in daisy plaits ,displayed
Such naievty was so soon betrayed,
Touching romance' nettle brought much pain
When discarded,by his disdain,
Tears welled upon her pillow,
Forsaken love long wears the willow-
A broken heart,no words could save,
Death's red poppy,petals her grave.

Inspired by Ophelia by John Everett Millais

A Prince

There in the midst
Of those ashes I see
A flame of humanity
Burning so brightly 
Fuelled by love
There on bended knee
The fireman 
Who risked his
Life to save
A dog and her
Five babies
Is Knighted a Prince
With a grateful lick
So tenderly.

Love Will Triumph

Songlike, melodious was her voice
Awestruck was he with her gentle beauty
In her love alone he could rejoice
Forgetting about his gentleman's duty

Dramatic was the scene when her father
Swiftly appeared, vivid his displeasure
Brave young man who held it altogether
His strength of character one could treasure

Mother lovely gentle emissary
But father stands huge, angry protective
Will mom's love restrain the adversary
Will her people skills be most effective

Love will triumph, youth will win his gold prize
Father will give to him his daughter as bride

Bed's Spring

I am the dawning man                        
The waking limb                                    
An unbowed willow                      

You are the dusken girl
The tangled sheet     
A dewed down meadow

We are sown seeds
Folded into the earth
Whose roots weave
And cannot be unpicked

We are green leaves
Laced with silk
In whose curl
Transformation sleeps

We are a chrysalis!

Love seen in a Rorschach!

A dog eared page of poetry
That is sealed with glue

A Night On The Town

We drive and we sit and we think-talk
And talk-think
The wind blows words out of our mouths before we can
And through our satanic smoke rings
We see:
A small section of the Athenian catastrophe.
Unfolding with the falsely spreading lights…
Our microcosm
(Our safe-house)

You roll the windows up 
And the top down
And we cloud gaze..
Out cocoon of heat is a shelter
From everything we are,
And everything we are scared to be...

Only a short while now.

Our cigarettes will run out, 
And we will too
Back home?
Eyelash wishes won’t save anything now…
You’ll never understand
Naïve little boy.

An Intimate Craving Of A Masterpiece

Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer 1   

(part one) 

Generous expanses of gold and silver 
thy lady ''Adele'' sing your song of a fleeting love
ornate thy garb of eligence worn in a celestial dream
eyes of thy suspect float thy gown searching in disarray
overlapping hands guard a heart of unknowing passion
a calm hope bleeds a woman of intrigue and of lust....

Waiting On Love

What is this meeting of the minds?
Our callow Sarah’s been seduced.
Love must triumph
an heir in fact is introduced.

What is this meeting of the minds
while Sarah sits in shame?
It is not love!
I will not risk this life with him.

What is this meeting of the minds?
So wait I must.
And wait I will,
in time, perhaps, love will become.

Love Will Triumph

Painting #6  Theater by Mary Cassatte 1879 


Captivated, alive, 
every ounce of her being, 
coming to life, every delicate 
emotion danced. 

Every mastered note romanced 
her deeply, a love affair long-lasting 
dare not end tonight, dare not 
bow as the curtain closes 
hiding from her 
fluttering heart. 

Sounding off as the drumbeat 
fades into the dressing room, 
reveal your face. She beckons 
her love as the 
curtain remains

Her Red Apron

Painting #8
L'Enfant au Tablier Rouge, 1886 by Berthe Morisot

Her Red Apron

Tied to your apron strings 
she wandered, wondered 
wondrous things 
about the snow 
covered trees. 

Put your mind at ease 
now, once and for all. 
Her young mind 
is colorful and curious, 
more privileged than most, 
spoiled but respectful 
and courteous as 
a little princess 
in fairy tale land.

She will dream 
unlike your dreams 
for her, but her own. 

She shall flourish 
in time, her red apron 
reflecting the color 
of her love 
for you.

True Love Finds Appeal

And to you Sir Shakespeare As if to lend an ear A twisted brilliance unwinding A loving agony reveal To cry of simple pleas This weakened love of fear Climbing from the broken torment Amid a smoking mirror I read each line of beauty Upon truth of lies conceal Though pain conflicting moments True love finds appeal

Another demi sonnet

Come fluttering words,come drifting words to me
he loves me still,
such compliments...
these flowers,thrill,
The aroma of love
lingers in his heart

never, now to depart

Battle Aura

Solitude en gravy victory sanctuary among the carrier left with wind,

If the soul of a man is in bark on a destiny what shall it found,

Immortal is verdict to pause lack of words insecurity whole of fragment of word,

Let true expression detail meaning,

Ruth beneath a tone will power,

Ruth against stone raise such limit engage,

Sanctuary of forbidden howls define sound,

Ring the bell of Saturn and wave good bye,

Enhance the vision to change the vision,

Can you see a man soul by a glaze or whistle, 

Grim of night passion ignite,  

Battle Aura hand fully of glory.,

She was the passion of his life
Alma,fated never to be his wife,
In a relationship of tempest & strife-
As figures drifting upon a sea,
Sadly the closest,to eternal love for he.

Two Lovers On The Porch

Black star studded night
Porch totally visible by porch light
Two young lovers standing on porch
Knowing daddy soon will call of course

Serious talk has occured
Only the night has heard their words
He's saying that he joined the force
Soon he'll leave for service of course

She's afraid she'll be alone
With him gone so far from home
Maybe her time can be usefully spent
She'll go to school if he'll give consent

Love lay lifeless carried by loving arms
Sacred body Most Divine Sacrificial Lamb
Emmanuel, Prince of Peace, Messiah
Redeemer, Provider, Merciful, Protector
King of Kings and Lord of Lords
Love eternal crucified

His mission completed
The ransom paid in full
Laborious agony was over
Freely He had given His all
Holding nothing back
Love eternal crucified

Love came to rescue fallen man
Enslaved to wretched sin
He exchanged His cloak of glory 
Assumed the massive cloak of sin 
 In three days Love will arise
Supreme ecstasy achieved
