As One Together

moon and stars above
warm summer night breeze blowing
arms wrapped around me
closeness makes my body weak
your breath, the warm breeze, I melt
our hearts together
beat now as one forever
till death do us part

I'm So Jealous

~The One That Got Away~


Here I lay weeping

I sing a sad song to sleep 

Fire cracking bones

kicking, screaming, pulling hair

The moment, gone forever

When Love Creates

Eyes to eyes now meet Tenderly our lips touch We, adventurous Rhythmic vibrations rejoice When love creates little ones .

Lost Inside His Eyes

Lost inside his eyes so close I breathe his essence his gaze mirrors mine Tracing his beautiful smile I realize I am found

Where Reveries Reside

Tears subside,
hushed breaths draw ebbing tide,
soft virgin sands, un-walked and damp, shine.

A delicate filigree of silvery brine
brings an interlude where grief and beauty entwine,
gently swaying between now and then.

Thoughts of ‘remember when’
stir again.

Scattered far and wide,
bygones shimmer in rock pools,
scents on breezes ride...
elusive remnants of love
under bitter-sweet moonlight.

There is a place where reveries reside,
ensconced in time between the lows and highs,
where troubles disappear in ocean’s sighs
and hopes return with happiness inside.

Where shades of blue, and rose hues coincide
to nurture promises of sweet reprise,
there is a place where reveries reside,
ensconced in time between the lows and highs.

A haven to reflect on love’s divide,
recall that smile, the twinkle of those eyes
with fondness, then let woven dreams arise
with threads of gilded memories to guide...
this is the place where reveries reside.

Twin Flames

Twin Flames  

one  flame  flickers   blue 		
as love  awakes a journey  		
connecting a friend			
as red flame sparks holding hands   	
tame  harmony	 remains   “Love”		

te amo

holding each other  			
our own little universe 			
communicating 			
in a  language all our own		
burning  one unified flame	
	
jet ’aime

flickering flame sings				
orange  green  red   blue	one soul
passionate love grows 
candle ignites luminous 
holding my heart existence

I love you

I love you in  Spanish, te amo and France, Jet ’aime

Dawning Snow

Clinging unto hope
shining ever virgin white
There shines a beacon
sky alive with virgin snow
Feeling its abandonment

The skies dawn now grey
tiny diamonds do fall
A swan breaks water
the stillness it now is gone
truth behind crystal liquid

Within reflection
virgin snow is now falling
Spilling out snowflakes
Diamonds fall heaven's grace
Snowflakes little drops of Faith

Softly they do fall
On earth they crunch beneath feet
Frozen diamonds
Rainbow's colours shining bright
They shine with heaven's own light

Dreams of love do shine
Kisses fall like drops of snow
Love is virgin white
Covers heart with warmest glow
Love unlike snow never fades

A Collaboration by,
Liam Mcdaid.

HEART SONG

With devotion lost
You stepped through a low portal.
Infatuation 
Took control of my desire.
You captured my broken heart

Lost in Japan

Origami soul
Pressed in rice paper tightly
A tomb of beauty
Memory of Geisha's heart
Tsunami tears in albums...

For Paulie: RIP

in this silence
the respirator breathes…
we did not know
his heart
was
still

Tanka 2 Life Dance



                                                   a man bent with age
opens trunk, heaves   wheelchair lifts  --- plop

frail arms link, lift, hug, swirl, down
                                      dosey doe  - death do us part

The Love Note

Arthritic fingers
Unfold the crumbling parchment
Stained with tears and words
Her blind eyes no longer see
And feels the deep impressions
Still there after all these years

A wall between




Loves call awaits me

    Or perhaps it is knocking

        What if I answer

            Once opened finding no one 

                Only a wall between us

TANKA LOVE MUSIC

TANKA LOVE MUSIC

how familiar that tune –
the enchanting night
your warm embrace –
now i remember
claire de lune


piano - four hands
fur elise      you’ve never heard
such cross-overs
our hands would touch
and we’d laugh


my love with child
not my own
yet some eternal source within
said,     “i forgive”
transfigured night *

*Arnold Schoenberg

TREMBLES and THRILLS


TREMBLES and THRILLS Was it love that spelled when I caught a glimpse of him on a starless night? Flame of passion rise Frozen hearts thawed, now aflame When loving captures Hugging limbs of two entwined They, naked or clothed Their entranced display absorbed Bare or askew, loves spoken Of sweet spring night dream, a bed of blooms reach their peak, virginal petals under a bank of dawn clouds tickled, blushes rosy reds... Falling into wake, I stirred to feel summer breaths stroking my cold cheeks. I ask myself, was the dream I have, instantly came true? Minutes passed, we stood warm drops from sudden showers rolled upon our curves as heat surfaces from us; our bodies dancing again... Breaking morning rules we lie spooned for two more hours heartbeats sang refrains. Our song broken by soft rain, we dressed to begin our day. ________________________________________ 9:52 pm, November 01, 2015

Swinging on a star


of all love spoken

  his words to me said it best

    for "eternity"

      love you more then there are stars

        a timeless and countless love...

Two Lovers

Eyes like a clear lake,
reflections of a dreamland,
skylights for two hearts.
Walking amidst the cloud tops,
the light brightens up their day.

Western Skies

  

in bare hands you tilt 
my earth to seek western skies
spirits set the sun
bare feet chase red jasper realms

Faith, Hope and Love


                                                have faith in yourself,
                                         then hope will follow life through,
                                                 making life complete, 
                                              the driving force is loving
                                              needed for peaceful living.

To Constance--broken wings

Constance
a fine but sad poet
her poems run deep
into love paradisial
or fraught with thorns

At A Glance

Oh to be able
just to touch your wondrous smile,
dwell in benign eyes
those yielding meadows of green
that sparkles in sun lit dew.

another fall

Green departs to seek
a more fulfilling role, which
it found in your eyes - 

more glorious than trees that
fade (like me) to muted brown

Prisoner Of Love

Oh with her sweet smile
I was taken prisoner,
cry of the castle
shackled to chains of desire
captive hopelessly in love.

WATER CAN NOT QUENCH

Cold, relentless rain
Pound on heated, fevered skin
Nature seems jealous
Water can not quench, my love
Nor contain this deep yearning
