Crimson lips, lovers awaken with a kiss
Creamy white skinned Goddesses resting
In a time where Socrates lusted after Sappho's 
Poetry and art.
The Grecian people worshiped her with
her beauty and exquisite prose. On the wings
of her art she played enchanting music arranged 
for immortality.

Golden chariots in fields of apples bold,
yet, solitary like one fallen from the tree, 
Sappho wrote her memoirs and music
while exiled, her death unspoken.

Holding Adonis In another place and another lifetime, gazing into eyes that gazed back with passion. Kissing you, loving you and how you touched me. Summer’s moon watched us. Are you in the world, my sweet lover? Are you? Have you gone the way of the gods before you? Blessed was I to hold you so closely. I was holding Adonis.

Veritable Love

                               Their passion  so unchecked--
                               He dried her tears
                               Before the sorrows struck

Influence of Chagall


Cradle garden faithfully, free her petals. 
 Pluck bouquet and playfully tend her, kiss her.
  Praise her beauty soulfully - stem and fragrance.

like a kite or balloon while he held her hand

                  PLANNING ADULTERY

Heard his footstep spring upon the stair and stop--
Heard his hand upon the cold brass knob ...and click--
Held her arms as open as her wandering heart could bear--
Heralded her fall...

The Shoals

Walking, talking and skipping stones by the shoals
Caress, hug me  tender while shining bold eyes
Sparkle, playful promises until fall fades
Sensibility flew

Example:  Red cheeked boyfriends tenderly kiss me sweet mouthed
under Boulder coverlets winter springtime
hug me naked laughing & telling girl friends
gossip til autumn
RED cheeked BOY/friends TEN/der/ly KISS me SWEET mouthed
UN/der BOUL/der COV/er/lets WIN/ter SPRING/time
HUG me NA/ked LAUGH/ing and TELL/ing GIRL friends

        GOS/sip til AU/tumn

A Night to Remember

The dark; the gloom; the waning moon dost shine
The beast within the pounding heart unwinds
The night’s delight awaiting sunset
The girl sits all alone

The stars shoot by overhead up high
Crickets sing out a lover’s lullaby
A night to dream a fantasy of love
The boy takes her home

Jeopardized Their Lives

They were righteous men who would risk everything for their king
They were mighty men who would sacrifice their own lives even
Only a chosen few had the heart to yield themselves so willingly

Jeopardizing their lives was complete obedience

The Morning After the Night Before

My mind is still on your Grecian isle yet lost
Through time to another place where I exist
As Sappho sings her songs to me once more
And time unites worlds.

I dream as you lie beside me of rivers
Winding gently down your sloping hills, curving
Around the whispered breeze as you breathe, inhaling
Senses from my heart.

Awaken Aphrodite with discreet kisses
Placed in indiscreet places as sunlight calls
Revealing the night of cardinal pleasure
And whispers hello!

see the sun

Waking feels like dreaming without the colors;
rising, I will move through the air like water.
When each passing thought is a question, you move

LOVE'S MESSAGES sapphic stanza

                                             LOVE'S MESSAGES 

                   Hunted fiercely through the eye attacking ragg'ed crowd of din--
                   Sorted swiftly through the stone cold features--haggard face by haggard face--
                   Fought gut fear -- he’d read love’s secret message wrong again;

                   He glimpsed the boot clad foot that led her floating from the train….

LOVESTRUCK Sapphic verse


                               Saw the eagle turning of his hero head

                               Saw the whisper of a smile upon the lips for kissing

                               Yearned for a night without a dawning;

                               Silently he nodded while sat I with folded hands…..

                                              LOVE IN THE FRAGRANT DAWNING

                                  Heard the birdsong of delicate blush dawning

                                  Dreamed the soft breath yearning kisses of my darling

                                  Wakened to the flashing agony of wicked truth;

                                  Veiled my trembling heart in black.

Certain, certain be when a heart is breaking,
banish doubt and conquer the simple truth: that
love does not defer to the circumstantial
                          (nor to my logic)

Falling in the beauty of graceful silence,
wanting but the echo of lover's glory,
mourning for the death of the passing hours
                  under this darkness...

                                     MEETING HER TRAIN       Sapphic Verse

                    Hunted through the eye attacking colored crowd of din--
                    Sorted through the stone cold features --face by face--
                    Fought the fear that he’d read love’s message wrong again;

                    He glimpsed the foot that led her from the train….

Xanthous Yellow (Sapphic stanza)

I fell in love amid the xanthous yellow
as clarions of daffodils awaken
in the gently warming winds of April's song
to the springtime air.

As soft as the breeze she took hold of my hand
and led me to places only lovers see,
draped in faded charms of cherry tree blossom
my heart came alive.

In her kiss, a tender moment of rebirth,
the empty soul I was stirred into being
my transition in her loving embrace
a heart’s destiny.

Booze I love to take to forget about them
Pain and failure make me to feel dejected
right from time I hated to see oppression
       love is so treasured.

The Candelabra: For Mummy Precious Richards on her Birthday


Euphonious today is the tone 
And though tomorrow is shrouded , unknown,
I trust it holds a blissful opaline pod
And to this repose a prayer to our Lord and God.


Some court are songless and dark
Some have lost their Eden park
But I saw a songbird over your window sill
And you sat cushy on Croesus seal
Away, away from fears,away from tears.

Your place is among the stars
Where the twelve streams of Elysus 
Flow; God has made you 
 A salt to this nation,
The candelabra of the world!

Choice birthday greetings to you.

Waiting only forces the old wounds open - 
suffer, silent, pray that the guards will falter,
standing vigilant at mistrusting doorways;
ego, their master.

Eos byncio a Adwaen Ca 'm enaid

Eos byncio a Adwaen Ca 'm enaid
rabid affection tearing emotional 
fences to concious choice of her intention
amau 'm cara 

Lost in valleys that call for destiny's song
amid the Black mountains and crystal cascades
the only places where truth of her beauty 
shall reign 'm cara

Every past that perfectly colors letters,
haunting losses beckon the predecessors,
utter names in passion or greeting, makes a
furious girlfriend.

Kiss Me, Love

Love, I’ve never known you to be as gorgeous
As you are in lying beside me sweetly,
At this very moment; and nothing other
Pleases me better…

Come and kiss me now, my beloved:  tender
Touches take me, ravish me, make me breathless,
Eyes and lips embodying invitation!
Kiss me forever…

MY MUSE ****************** My Muse, looks to the stars, for me, not herself. I have the passion, the words I am failing. Turns, whispers in my mind of treasures, loves wealth! My words availing... *****************

Gold champagne and tipsy, the bride unbridled.
Round and round, she stirs with romance under the
moon and stars, a-swooshing. A wedding toast with
     bubbles and giggling.

Sheets — warm, tired, impossibly wrinkled, burns her
cheeks at Summer’s peak. And his sweet and sexy
tongue, asleep with dreams, unaware and moaning,
        calling out her name.

Honeymooners kiss as he wakes up lips and
neck and this and that. She obeys the rapture
blossoming again in her husband’s trellis —
     breathlessly brimming.
