rain, sky, spring, sun,
by B. Maxine Revolution |
Tickled with wet prisms
Cocooned with the dead head of trees
Synchronized in natures rhythms
Her skin dancing with shadows in a breeze
Good morning Misses Sun
Inhaling the exhalants of the plants
Worries has she? None.
In spring showers she does gallivant.
After noon parade of Clouds
What stories in shapes do you bring me?
I see you’re not in lack of drought
I do love the song of thunder you sing me
So soon Mister Moon
I’m ready for the spotlight summons
Rolling in your dark doom
The now dry sky cries diamonds
How I love the day
How I love the Night
More than I can ever say
Mmm Whispers of the light.

god, green, heaven, jesus, life, love, time,
In the late midnight hour, when death comes to call,
and we are at a loss as to how we could resist, we
therefore must answer its summons, leaving this world
and all our loves. We then shift from earth's time, to
God's time, which is infallibly accurate.
keeper of dreams my sweet Lord
by Paul Schneiter |
There is a softness about you
That summons things divine.
It makes me think what I must do
To be worthy to call you mine.
There is a kindness you employ
That touches my heart and head.
It is the source of boundless joy,
And nothing does it leave unsaid.
There is charity in all your acts
That lifts lives in endless ways.
It confronts mortality’s harsh facts
And turns fearful nights to days.
There is love within your being
That embraces all who are near.
It’s a blessing I’ve been seeing—
An earth angel irrepressibly dear.

desire, earth, imagination, longing, love, relationship, sensual,
The body summons the soul
And together they commune
With breathe of burning ardour...
Compose baritone in concordance
Of larghetto soprano….
Mesh with pulsating beat
Of Deep throbbing heart
Possess by rhapsodic Afro-juju spirit…
And the world comes to a stand still
The moon jigs her backside
And tilts the mass of the basin fluid…
Lento ascend the euphonic resonance…!
The earth quake and tear apart
As the river washes body and soul
And discharge into the hollow emptiness
Of her moist pit…
All dead… and the world moves again!

My Yearning Love
While I sit alone on this wooden bench where last we both sat
My conscious mind reflects on the past
The autumn light of day ripples through
Amongst the baldachins between columns of the highest peaks,
The cadence pulse of nature sounds flows through
The tendrils of limbs and leaves play.
I glance into the heavens with peacefulness
For only a brief glimpse
Feeling the tease of cool, crisp breeze against my face;
And your presence summons by my yearning love
For a trace of your soul’s faithful love and tenderness

hope, life, love
The wild rose expresses the essence of life and beauty
a sweet blossom atop thorny stems with roots entirely her own
the fragrant lure summons as honey bee makes its approach
by John Arola |
allusion, analogy, beautiful, beauty, love, romantic, romantic love,
Gentle waves of raven locks lap against the shore of her skin,
Soft, suntanned arms beckon the dusky light on the horizon,
Angelic radiance to her form. Cleansing sin,
A dying shadow, behind, fading slowly as the night summons.
Twilight in her eyes, where stars radiance waits to shine,
She sits on sand. Her brow, once a storm, now calmly rests,
Her slender hand, fingers graceful and fine,
Strokes the beach with a fond caress.
The wind, a tempestuous lover, the water, her supplicant,
At her feet like a prayer, and a plea,
On this, till my life’s journey spent,
She is my harbor, and my sea.
---A continued exploration on a theme---
by Dr. Upma A. Sharma |
for a call to prayer,
Or shortly before
consecration of the bread,
Or an alarm
to inform an invasion,
But what I like as most
is the bells of love,
ringing in the hearts
Or of celebration !
Ringers of the bells
I first heard in my heart
when we met first,
The drumming beats
and strings of piano,
hymns floated in air.
He took a shine to
purples of many twilights,
Sweet rhymes of bells
ringing on and on,
in the ballroom,
amidst ocean pearls,
Thence the final
Wedding bells !

love, valentines day,
Cupids golden summons decreed
With secret aim silvered arrows speed
Linking hearts with passionate will
For loves hope to fulfill
With poetic verse loves sentiments dispence
with torrents of eloquence
And there engraved upon the heart
with firey darts loves secrets to
persuade unsuspecting hearts
With such grand felicity and clandestine charms
Eternal love is birthed in lovers arms

feelings, longing, love, passion, romance, sensual, sexy,
First she said she had to go.
Time is creaking in the flow.
Grasping firm my smooth e-phone,
Party matter, cordless zone.
Twisting, lying, spineless snake,
Open mouth too big to take.
Venus venom summons Eve's
Blushing, bouncing apple tease.
Humping in a sack of green,
Not for love or tangerines.
**** of gold and multi-facets.
Time is leaking on my assets.
Running from that musky cow.
Searching for a ginger gal,
Soul-mate, princess, guardian, fairy,
On this night of wet and eerie.

abuse, betrayal, bullying, death, heartbroken, judgement, leaving, lost love, sin, water,
Have I been summons to your presence , only to be sacrificed.
In the coldness of your breath..i will be put to a icy cold death.
With one word, I exist or not.
It is only you whom can wear your arrogant crown of ice.
You care not at all about my loss in your icy Palace of shallow glory.
I will be forgotten and disquarded , not worthy of a story .
To be replaced by a new form of ice , that ice will only be disquarded like I have been.
There is no place in your frozen heart for anyone other then you .
Are you happy with the cold Icy walls you have created in your palace Of self Worship .
You worship your self Self Ice king , surrounded by Sin.

deep, devotion, love,
Indemnify for your goodwill eternally, I fail to be.....even
Goaded kaleidoscope makes one feel lucky to have titillating summons....with
No egregious sentiments even on accolated appraisal of you with....her
Soul shackled in cyclone of karma always pave it's terminus towards...you
Neither jostled by the violent gusts, nor worried for the inedible obstacles en route there...are
Peep over the wide expanse of the siamese past and future to others may seem...still
Every beat harps the same note that even now you are still...mine

longing, love, magic,
She is the fountain of lust and of love
She bathes me in the most potent sea,
Opens her butterfly thighs
Wraps murals of flesh around me
I am her prisoner and her predator
The beast in me
by dani wil |
baby, dark, fear, metaphor, natural disasters, peace, rain, prayer,
I love that moment before the storm.
The world goes silent
and dozes and snores.
A prayer summons this bliss to last;
for regular breath,
much unlike the past.
Peace that ends in a series of pours.
Thunder snaps the core.
The world's awake and is frantic.
Breath turns to howls.
Rain. Tears. Panic.

crush, fate, love,
Come with me now; don't you wonder sometimes
what lights up my face when I glance your way,
what leaps from my heartbeats into my rhymes,
what makes me uncertain quite what to say?
I know you can see, though pride makes me sly,
and you understand, too, my armor is weak.
Your sparkling mirth keeps me dreadfully shy,
aware you are certain you'll find what you seek.
So, yes, you are victor; be careful, my dear!
My hopes and my dreams are at your mercy.
It's up to you now whether to stay clear,
of paths you've unveiled to bless or to curse me.
I hearken to summons much older than time.
We're at the foot of a mountain; do you wish to climb?
by Yolanda Nicholsen |
You have tempted me again
a rather sinful plot beneath
the sultriness that beseech
my wretched soul
why it is nearly dawn already
oh how you calmly cater
to my parts toying with every
freckle tampering with even
the faintness notion that
I'd whither myself upon
your broad shoulders again
why I'm afraid to ask that
we shall do it again
that I'd but only secretly
fail to mention us
only by the writings
of my pastel diaries
oh come with me love
above a whisper let us
dance on the sunrise
daintily behind the loft
so well hidden within
the distant nook where I
shall summons your
manliness once more

art, blessing, dedication, faith, jesus, love, truth,
I'm waiting in line, where God summons His people.
Gather all in and shout, Hallelluia, Hallelluia.
If you make a mistake, it will be forgiven.
If you hurt someone all will be forgiven.
He will understand and it will be forgiven.
Praise Him in His Holy Name.
Praise Him in His Holy Name.

art, family, father, life, love, passion, me,
It was deep in my soul
in my groin.
Before going deep into you.
The beauty of your face,
your hips making that
The body heat we generated
past evolution to create
We became one with Heaven and Earth
Father Time and Mother Nature
put us in bed together.
You opened and allowed me to love you
from the inside out.
Your moistness kept me there
until our Ancesters blow us
a goodnight kiss.
And sleep took us
and before long
a child was born.

Her castle's surrounded by sticks and stones
Cyotes they tell her whoever may roam
With a fortified fortress of cactus and charisma
They never break through cause her energy sticks them
They bleed at her feet with the sun in their eyes
They cry in defeat as she watches them die
She summons the vultures like a mad jezabel
They feast on fools flesh as she sends them to hell
My dark desert diva,why are you so cruel?
Making love with Lucifer she smiles like a ghoul

appreciation, devotion, i love you, meaningful, relationship, soulmate, together,
MY EYES LOOK FOR YOU
MY HEART BLEEDS THE TRUTH
MY SPIRIT ENTERS YOUR SOUL COMPLETELY
My simple truth speaks my love for you
Of my unflinching devotion
I thirst for the signs of tenderness
Your smile directed my way
The gentle touch of your hand
Each word of endearment from you
Every opportunity for our hearts
To mesh and intertwine in harmony
My life craves affection and interplay
My soul in sultry dance summons its mate

In the silent night
When the cold wind lends an ear
And the skies wait to hear
The call of the night crickets.
That time of the night
When the stars gather in troupes
to watch over the earth
I close my eyes
And imagine your voice
The geniality of your words
Summons my thought to a stand still.
Till my pastel eyes decline into drowsiness
My emotions hum your name.
Even in my sleep,
I am still a slave
For your name rules my dream
by Eileen R. Kelly |
Compare me not to a
for I present to you
on bended knee...
whilst I keep my sword
I will draw battle to
protect your heart...
the mere whisper of your
name in vain...
...my courage will summons
...this love more powerful
than this life I breathe...
this heart hungers for
this love you weave...
by Wardah Ahmed |
love, love hurts,
I could never bleed for love
It could become a part of me
Without knowing real love
It could never consume me
Love motivates one to give affection
And summons one to be brave
During times of conflict and rejection
Love is on the heart engraved
Like fear, love pulls you into the darkness
And then harshly sets you free
It blinds you for a brief period so heartless
And then suddenly allows you to see
His kind nature is of high regard
I thought I could never bleed for love so hard
Now, with a love so pure
I am not so sure...
by Charlotte Zuzak |
The potter's wheel
Old and cracked,
Still turns as its spirit
Sculptor of love
Labors with clay
Searching for beauty
In imperfect features
That tell a life's story.
Gentle hands, rough and worn,
Seek a soul in mire and slush
Giving spirit to humble substance
Patiently molding, pursuing perfection,
But leaving that flaw
That summons humility.
by Katherine Braithwaite |
allegory, allusion, beautiful, blessing,
Thought, the vision of the inner eye,
Peers behind the mask of mundane view
A choosing of the best of what comes by
Not the monsters on the Daily News
Thought to me is vision without words;
Needs silent presentation and review.
The words translate the images that surge
Then fall back to the ocean where they grew.
Like coloured visions of the deep sea bed
Where fishes reel and dance, where life is new.
What we mean with difficulty’s said
Yet evocation summons it to view.
Let my words evoke my love of you;
And answer me with many kisses new.
