Bluewing Falling


Her magic is drawn 
from an ocean's 
million hues 
reflecting 
boundless skies

slain by her trembling perfection 
you grab hold of her 
to save yourself 
 
and you do not mean her any harm 
you just want to feel what azure feels like
to experience the depths of cerulean 

but her cobalt dust 
rubs off all over you 
your being  

indelibly indigo stained 
  
as the beauty you wished to possess 
lays crushed 
at your feet

Prayer For Her, This Wounded Heart Healed

Prayer For Her, This Wounded Heart Healed

Please keep this dream in my lost life
remove painful sting and life filled with strife
Let her dance and sing another sweet tune
as I hold her under this, merciful God's moon.

Time

Relentless in it’s movement
like the ticking of a clock
as time keeps marching forward
for our future to unlock.

The past is but a memory
the present but a blur;
this moment gone in just a blink
as “now” becomes the times that were.

This ticking seems so infinite
eternal in its life;
forever forging on ahead,
its endless moments rife.

But as for us a different tune,
we know our time will end;
for us the ticking soon will cease;
prepare yourself my friend.

Love your neighbor and your God
and nature here on earth;
give service to your fellow man,
the measure of your worth.

One Step Away From Eternity

Alas, I stand atop this mountain crest,
and gaze upon the valley down below;
the graveyard where your body lays at rest,
sits in the center shadowed by plateau.

My sad heart aches with every breath I take;
I wonder why I’m made to bear this bane,
and live a life that’s cruel and opaque,
while trying hard my teardrops to restrain.

This awful illness claimed your life so soon,
while you and I were living in our prime;
the heavens haled you, leaving my life strewn
across this wasteland, sadly out of rhyme.

‘Tis but a step across this steep degree,
and I will join you in eternity.

Fortunes Of My Tears


I see the future in the constellation of my crystal tears as you siphon the sparkle off what’s left of my joy. Heavy is my heart where you spread your composting ego sacrificing my fire. Your unwillingness to ascend from darkness on wings of breath and light is not lost on me.. as you strut your fan of peacock plumes snuffing out any hope for my flickery flame.

The Never Ending Now

Upon a breathless moment in time, A thousand hells do exist; Within a paralyzed paradigm A love is lost in the mist. Where hearts are broken forever, Amidst the never ending now; As anguished sorrows sever And tears break the bough. A twinkling second of love lost, Like mirages melting of mind; A neglected nuance in frost Caged memories are confined. In an instant love is crushed, And a lonely moment hushed.

As we walk hand in hand

As we walk hand in hand

Today as we walk hand in hand
Happily through pure white sand
The love within my heart for thee
It flows to you so tenderly.

The ocean waves ebb to and thro
As hand in hand along we go
Bare feet in the silky sand
 The sun shines down and life’s so grand

We stop, the two of us and kiss
Oh how nice to feel such bliss
As love matures we two, entwined
Such perfect sweetness we do find

Today as we walk hand in hand
Happily through pure white sand.

Saying Goodbye to Autumn

It seems we said hello, just yesterday
Do you recall the night you came to town?
You blew in silently, I hoped you'd stay
Time really flies when old friends come around

When you leave here, I guess you'll be southbound
I love the pretty blanket left for me
Those yellows mix so well with red and brown
It will make such a treasured memory

Yet when you've gone, how diff'rent things will be
So cold and bare, your warmth will disappear
It happens ev'ry year so let's agree
We'll plan a longer visit for next year

Sweet autumn it is time to say goodbye
I wish you'd come next year about July

The Heart's Journey

Should there be such pain in 
passion of the heart?
Or does the heart, 
simply by beating, 
know the boundaries of pain 
when it can no longer absorb any more joy?
The two seem intertwined at times, 
each exalted unto itself.
From euphoria to melancholia, 
the heart is on an endless journey 
seeking harmony and balance, 
yet finding anything but.
We torture our souls 
for the sake of love,
enduring countless curves,
on the road to the steep summit 
where a plateau cannot survive
the weathered storms for long, 
but for the season’s summers 
we exist.

Reflections in Twilight

Angels in twilight
Reflections of affections
Dancing in starlight

When angels entwine
Harmonic explosions of devotions
A love divine

When angels embrace
Roses and wine will make you mine
With satin and lace

When angels dance
Starlets on fire with great desire
A burning romance

When angels fly
Dropping wishes of kisses
Amidst the jasmine sky

When angels sing
Humming in orchestral celestial
Vibrations in their wing

When angels dream
Marshmallow clouds over the crowds
Sitting on soft lavish green

When angels cry
Tears of wasted years
Reflections in my eye.

Amazing Grace

The soul whom the Son sets free
is free indeed,
Unlocking the rusting shackles
of oppression,
Allowing life’s amazing grace
to shine with His embrace,
Transformation of soul’s darkness
to light’s brightness,
The uplifting revelation of God’s
truth of freedom,
His extraordinary and infinite power
shining love every hour,
Preservation and hope for life
His love abound, no strife
How sweet the sound—
Wrapped in His embrace
Singing Amazing Grace!

Time For Tears

The wait has been too long but now it’s time
To hold with love what she yearned for
No words for joy but grateful tears.

The radiant face aglow with sparkling tears
Cradling her child for the first time
She knows it’s been worth waiting for.

The fruit of mutual love she’s thankful for
She feels its breath and sheds warm tears
A lasting bond will grow in time.

A precious gift is born; it’s time for tears.

No Gold Nor Silver

No gold nor silver, weights my needy purse
Spun silk and finery I have no need
Such poverty of wealth be not God's curse
For bless'd the man who covets not for greed

My wealth is in the lilies of the field
The colors of the sunsets thrill my soul
Fruit trees and animals provide their yield
And stewardship to nature is my toll

But verdant forests do not warm a bed
The moon and stars, though friends, are silent stones
And lonely is the footpath which I tread
For one true heart, I'd share my pauper's throne

A golden heart and pauper's paradise
For love and happiness, a humble price

Delight is the Night

The moon is a curving flower of gold. Blue silk is the river below which gathers sweet Luna’s petal-face glow And mirrors it in a soft fold. Delight is the night as we - passion-souled - sail forth on the ribbon’s smooth flow!

When Love Reckons for a Second Time

When love reckons for a second time, like a drum, it comes on fast and hard and strong until two hearts in synch beat passion’s song. Sometimes second love may gently climb or ease sure-footed to one’s door where it sweetly seeps and saturates the soul. Love the second time is strong and yet it’s soft. It doesn’t sting or snip. It listens and reverberates the whispers of the heart. July 29, 2014 for the Contest of Nayda Ivette Negron

First Snow

First Snow Winter snow glistens painting our landscape white. Luna peers down from her lofty height bestowing her lovely glow as winter winds blow cold outside snow warm inside with hearth's fire aglow in loving arms of my beau. We both give thanks for this special night. Winter snow glistens painting our landscape white.

My Star


Diamond of my youth, bright like a star, I imagine sometimes where you are . . .  You may well be, as always I assume, far - so very far - away from me, but for all I know, you could also be like those mountains nearby me that loom. In my mind, you loom. But what if it's the tomb where I might find you ultimately? I can't bear to think of you, Darling, in the tomb or beneath the hard dark ground better it will be to think of you as my star burning ever brightly on May 3, 2017 for 'Best romantic write May-July 2017' Poetry Contest of John Hamilton

FINDING THE ONE



to find one's soulmate
one needs to listen to their heart

some set out for the big quest
the truth is your soulmate is nearby

your mate’s destiny is to find you
strange how serendipity works

while you keep busy being
the best person you can become

your soulmate will hover around you
like a bee to a flower

it will happen when you least expect it
when you're at peace within

you’ll recognize your soulmate
you just need to listen with your heart

INFUSING LOVE








If we infuse love into our children's heart 

And teach them respect for all nature and life

Soon many more things for peace we would achieve

That would end humanity's destructive strife!
