A nighttides talk amid this sea of Celestia's stars
Silver wings trimmed in gold horizons brushing dreams
Wherein only love shall glow her gleam; dropping times pebbles
Into reverberating waters images circling reflections voices these branches...
The lightning strikes a distant chord; their rippling mirrors her refrain and notes
As Autumn's colours swept into hands gathering love's petals; heart's, silent no more.

depression, life, light,
First rays splash lines of love
across naked bits of detour
dawn's door distracts
chills of the night dissipate
and I am free
Free of fight
held hostage ever tight
First rays flash and I see :
yellow bits of honey dripped
scarlet tanager at play
horizons filling out the day
Darkness held at bay__

inspirational, life, love, passion,
Overpowering the senses
Pithy eyes moving
Upon twin horizons
Trembling breathed echoes
Holding silence closely
Sensations of a cacophony
Rhythmic intensity flashing
Transparent intentions firing
As eyes close
Lips faintly caressing
The goodnight kiss…
by TS Poetry |
Fresh orange marmalade lifts the dark
naked in a mid-dream sky
red streaks rush across horizons
special moments won't slip on by
the silk thru your hair seduces
in love notes filling up your ear
romancing a river of blessings
trouble kisses off back the rear
pearls adorn the neck of passion
a taste so soft and sweet
savoured and salted with desire
in dimensions entangled we meet
love sits silent at the table
unclothed and wanting more
our hunger is not mistaken
as blood spills upon the floor
by Michelle Faulkner |
child, dedication, girl, hope, niece,
May you fall, so you may rise
May your horizons surpass your skies
May your future fill your eyes
May you make mistakes that make you wise
May your laughs outnumber your cries
May you wear your beauty, undisguised
May you stumble, so you may sympathize
May love take you by surprise
May you catch the light of fireflies
May your dreams flower to full size
May you hear your song - and harmonize.
by Üzeyir Lokman CAYCI |
inspirational, love, music, nostalgia,
Your expectations are carved into my eyes...
Their shapes melt in my dreams
The face seen in your postcards
Is not that of your soul Istanbul...
Living apart does not change your seas
Your waiting landscapes offer themselves
Thoughts do not remain still
Istanbul rests its weight upon my loneliness...
White fish swim in your living past
Seagulls float in your memories
Obliterated friendships stay awake till dawn
Anatolia rises from your horizons Istanbul...

lost love, memory,
When memories fade, like luminous fireflies
and days become another red thread,
When hope is nothing more than a wish,
held in the heart as a reminder,
when love was you
and I was a warm shadow to its light
To what end, do you haunt me so?
Is it desire?
To once again feel my feet endlessly float
Is it passion's yearning?
Caused by your mouth's kisses
Is it warmth from your hands?
As they held tight in conformation
Yes, I've kept your memory close
A jeweled reflection,
of a passing star, leaving a fiery trail
through the night sky,
disappearing into the darkness
Leaving only a silent wish
and a sense of awe
by Paloma P |
dark, heartbroken, memory, moon, mystery,
Hauntingly explicit, plighted
in yesterday's cloaked mystery,
wafting as whispers through
wistfully grayed memories on dimly
recalled moonlit indulgences,
winding imprecise hazy endings
beyond darkly covert horizons
love isn't blind, it's persistently unsighted
by distantly echoed adrift endings
by John lawless |
Whereas hearts are led by loving's blindness
and feral moans drift idly on the wind
rendering those stricken deaf and mindless
their voyage - sweet beginning of no end
Full sails, distant horizons, cresting seas
winds rippling the canvas short of gale
a shiver of timbers - buckling of knees
a crumbling of vows they wouldn't let fail
Yet hearts encompass a passion - a will
to scream at the night - to curse their own tears
to challenge the wind until it goes still
to cherish the mast - to conquer love's fears
The taming of the feral heart must be
to love and in the loving set it free

angst, depression, lifeheart, heart, me,
Heavy heart weighs me down
Troubles the mind
Obscures clear thought
Turbulent life coexists
Within the realm of the couple
On a plain different
From where love resides
As shattered glass blocks the view
But stays in place
People, too, can be the shards
Left there to block another
Not allowing the vision
The sight of what may be
May the glass fall to the ground
Opening up the skies to those in need
Opening up the horizons
To the blind
May it not cut when falling
For with each piece
Are spoken words
Which draw blood
Heavy heart weighs me down
Troubles the mind
Obscures clear thought
by Anna Hopper |
growth, i love you, mother daughter, my child,
Grow your horizons, wide
Grow on the inside
Grow yourself, all around
Tower above me
And smile down
You can grow, rapid
Or you can grow slow
Grow at your own pace
As long as you grow
Grow a little
But baby please
Don’t grow away
by John Rhinem |
hope, life, love,
Gazing dreamful into the stars while clutching tightly their marmalade moon ~
Gliding joyous unto it's milky ways; verical horizons spinning in lavas flowing
Galaxies, erupting to burst the melting sun; volcanic ashes of crimson hues
Genesis within love's cardinal colours; universal collusions, wherein all is new....

A thousand miles of oceans
Days and nights alone at sea
Whales sing under harvest moons
Its a refuge from the bitter world i see
Stars direct me to new horizons
To new lands calling out to me
Perhaps new roots and love await me
I can finally be free from misery
My passion for mankind has dwindled
That candle melted so long ago
Now i breathe in deep the salty airs
And accept a life of ebb and flow
One day when you no longer hear of me
And my name no longer missed
Know that ill be singing with the whales and dolphins
In the seas eternal bliss.

inspirational love, morning, sea,
nectar from honey
moons and the
sweet secretions of
honey sickle stems
But who will love you
when no moons shine
and seas rebuff
sands from your
When the warmth of
summer winds fade
and coolness assails
the molecular density
of your liquidity,
do candle lit windows
into quilted tranquility?
Love of my love,
I pray you rest peacefully,
New moons await
on unwritten horizons

beautiful, inspirational, spiritual, uplifting,
Escape to beyond..
Beyond and beyond..
Beyond the horizons..
Beyond the blue azzure skies.
The glowing moon..
The shooting stars..
Escape to beyond..
Beyond the sun..
Beyond sundrenched landscapes..
Kissed by the sun..
Soaked in it's magnificence
Beyond and beyond I am..
Slipped onto another realm..
Undescribable and exquisite..
Colors beyond our comprehension..
Beauty you perceive..
Mesmerized in bliss..
Enhanced in grandeur..
Loving heart expands..
Open to receive all the glory..
Held joyfully in love..
In the loving arms of the Creator..

Haunted by the way life used to be
we hold to hopes that beat within our breasts
and chase the ghosts of fading memory
to catch a glimpse of time
when youth and love, sublime
together made us have the very best.
Attracted by the places we once knew,
we stare through clouded images to yesterday
and see that what remains of then is through.
With each look we move on
to horizons’ coming dawn,
with plans to fill each moment up in everyway.

The choices we make sometimes turn out wrong
Days and nights seem to last so long
Sadness and pain begin to take control
Regret is an acid that eats away your soul
When you've given all you have to give
Then struggle to find reasons to live
Now you find your life is void of love
With your arms outstretched to the stars above
Tears flow freely as you feel the loss
There are still bridges you need to cross
Mixed with sunshine there is always rain
Mixed with loss there is always gain.
You climb that mountain. You walk that road
You unburden yourself of that heavy load
Another sunrise will come your way
New horizons will make your day.

abuse, america, angst,
through the duration of time to think sublime
heroes are made through like hellos
the wrestling with the window
one to embark on its solstace
throughout the duration of time so fine
with love to climb upon
long lines formed in desolation
burst inside with appreciation
live long & prosper
keep your mind in heavenlies
illusively through a dream
meadows are plain in view
horizons of beautiful personifications
each door we close there's always one opened
search your heart to help impart the meaning
believe in hope
so far to cope
down to your last thin rope
love has hope we can share
let's look above to the heavenly love
sare with others a brand new you

beautiful, beauty, deep, devotion, love, memory,
Important blooming beautiful
in you deep inside true
loving the time
I spend in your company
please never doubt me in what
I have said
thinking all the time
of you smiling so sweetly
dreaming in a sound of one sweet voice
kissing echoes warm softly surrender
Loving inside deeply cries
you are an noble maiden
who dazzles across sweetly horizons
kissing moonlight thoughts faraway
Your light distant sparkling warmly
as the dewdrops fall silver
glistening a starlight love
Deep within this path standing
golden sands we walk together
dream of dreams you dance with grace
with great joy embraced for eternity

love, autumn, , Lullaby,
I rest the rhapsodic morn along rustic shadows,
as if it were a sapphire,
i shall serenade beautifully beneath our efflorescent forests,
my hands await you like a rustic moon,
i shivery surreptitiously in my cashmere bowers,
the harmonies have dale's autumn glow,
the have bough's idyllic fragility,
ahhh, my future love,
my heart beats eagerly,
between the romance of a piano,
the season's have melody's romantic bough,
i will not wait me surely,
the feathers have glow's sparkling willow,
the lullaby leaps,
your silhouettes run the constellation,
you ,my love,
are my distant,eternal,
and yet, pastoral horizons

on a winter night
I tasted a summer fruit
under the blanket
pulpy and juicy
soft like a peeled red lychee
her luscious wet lips
lost in her softness
I explored new horizons
beyond this blue sky

Contest:A kiss like fruit
by Barbara Gorelick |
Come to me with whispers
Anoint my skin with kisses
Now the night belongs to us alone
Delighting in your quiet words, I
Leave the day's concerns behind
Ecstasy in your finger tips
Listening to a serenade of heartbeats
Imprinting your name upon my soul
Glory being in the giving of self
Horizons yet to examine together
Tonight, for now, just this night….
For the Romance contest...

Let the love flow
bond has developed
between the lands we
and the lands we will eventually reach
movements of light
moments of joy will entertain us
Now we dance
under the clouds
let freedom be your guide
to new horizons
In the land of Israel peace will eventually reign

absence, lonely, love,
Ships pass in the night;
going separate ways,
ner' to meet again.
Faded into dark.
hardly a wave
is left behind.
fills my soul,
