Before the End

Sunflowers and dandelions. 
Sometimes in life it's a fine line.
We go outside to breathe the air.
Look around, try not to stare.

The little children play and run.
The girls are screaming, having fun.
Little boys follow along.
Learning the words to write the song.

A bouquet of summer's sweet refrain.
A timeless imprint on your brain.
To carry us into the night.
Beyond what sunshine brings to light.

After all the dreams come true.
But get lost in the dawning dew.
Only glimpses of love survive.
As you awake having to strive.

Finally finding out the truth.
About our fantasy's in youth.
All we wanted was a friend.
And a little love before the end.

A Resplendence of Sunflowers

As brief as summer you swept
across my heart's desert
like a Santa Ana wind's hot caress.
Now the eastern passes
are still as virgin rocks
unto a land whispering 
of forgotten wildflowers.
In your absence marigolds bloom not
with the disappeared mockingbird.
Only as the last petals
of amaryllis wither do I ache.
You brought me a translucence 
of amber for my burnished bouquet.
Love was an ebullience of golden wheat,
our laughter a resplendence of sunflowers.

Old fashioned Garden


In an old fashioned garden behind a stone wall
Hollyhocks and sunflowers growing so tall
Red rambling roses drape over a fence
Old fashioned flowers with colours intense.

Lupins and larkspur in lilac display
Buddleia blooming where butterflies play
Surrounding moonflower whose petals unfold
A bright splash of starburst, marsh marigold

Herbaceous borders, rosemary and rue
Columbines and clover full damp with the dew
Scents long forgotten their perfumes endow
I loved them long ago, I love them now

These old fashioned flowers, I planted them all,
In an old fashioned garden behind a stone wall

Sunflowers and Bougainvillea

Sunflowers are black and yellow
You’re a damn cute fellow
Our hands intertwined on the cello
With you, I want to sing the Sh-ha-shallow

Bougainvillea are purple and pink
Let me take you out for a drink
Together our glasses will clink
Oh, you make my heart sink!

Such A Magical Place To Be

I know the land where the lemon trees flower where buttercups swoon and sunflowers tower such a magical place to be, you see such a magical place to be. Where gumdrops in and pansies grin and the fruit is never sour where lilies guild with whip-poor-wills, to sing but never cower such a magical place to be, you see, such a magical place to be. Come run, let's see, just you and me, if moonbeams ever shower to the land where love is grand and the beautiful lemon trees flower such a magical place to be, you see such a magical place indeed.

I Wonder if Death Will be Anything

I wonder if death will be anything 
Quite like living, such as 
Stretching the imagination
And allowing for opportunities 
Of love and selfless giving. Freely
Recognizing one’s demise isn’t something we wish
To dwell upon more often than the beauty of
An early morning sunrise
Or the reflection of our own soulful
Self in another lover’s eyes.  Still, 
I can’t help but wonder what mysteries
Await us everyone; below the ground
Where sights and sounds are frozen,
Deaf and dumb.  While not wishing 
To overstate a point of endless view,
I pray that when they lay me down
I still might see the stars that shine and 
Sunflowers in full bloom.

Love Without Hope

Love without Hope      Oh, even the sunflowers could not cope,
for their precious petals long to be plucked, from your love-me-not touch.
Can you not hear their slender green stalks, sway so bashfully,
with echoes of that recess kid fantasy      Pick   Me      Pick      Me!

Most Beautiful Springtime - The Nonet Style

~Most Beautiful Springtime ~ ( Reversed Nonet / Nonet ) Outside the sun is shining so bright Spring always brings lots of delight Children play all day outside People look happier too Birds, bees, butterflies Happily fly Sunflowers Outside Smile Red Roses Make people Sigh with delight Spring beautiful sight Wishing spring just to stay And never to go away Spring always brings lots of delight Outside the sun is shining so bright.

memories of spring

After the lilacs have gone by,
before golden flowers bloom
we will walk through meadows
soft and blue 
and feast on bread with honey 
stolen from autumn bees 
still drunk in love with sunflowers.

After the lilacs have gone by,
before red poppies dance,
as we wake in meadows
soft with dew
you will kiss my honeyed lips
and we will walk through springs
still drunk in love with bluebells.

After the lilacs have gone by,
before brown leaves of autumn
as we remember meadows
green and new
sweet dreams will flow like honey
from a sunflower child 
with eyes the shade of bluebells

Roses are red

Roses are Red,

Sunflowers are tall,

My Father is the greatest, Daddy of all.

He is great with computers,

Can fix anything,

Will take me to the park and push me on the swing. 

I love that Daddy taught me to ride my bike,

Its my favorite hobby with him at night.

Do Not Send Me Roses

Do not send me roses
roses do not surprise
lavish me with sweet hydrangeas
their delicate bunches a feast for the eyes

Do not send me roses
roses have become so cliche
lavish me with joyful daisies,
azaleas, or fragrant lilac bouquets

Do not send me roses
God's garden grows many flowers
tall sunflowers bursting with seed
will brighten my day at any hour

Valentines Day has come and gone
my love, remember these words I say
do not send me roses
create a masterpiece for me to display!

Big Bouquets--Trochee

Gardens are my big passion.
I love how mine grows.
With sunflowers the fashion
There are highs, no lows.

Dominating every way,
Their idol, the sun.
Big bouquets for Mother's Day,
Would be so much fun.

sunflowers do love


sunflowers do love
brimming with the sweet nectar,
no bee this season!


fall in love again,
your words tempting me to dance
in the whirl of love,
swirling and twirling my heart
a different spring this time!

Roses are Red Remix

Roses are red
Violets are Blue
My heart is weak
Only you make it strong

I can't think of nothing else
because I get speechless when I do
You are my rose

Roses are red
Sunflowers are yellow
now lets take off into the sun

I don't see nothing else
It's like I am blinded
my dear how I love you

Friendships are cool
but ours is better
Unstoppable bond that nobody else can touch

Heart to heart
hand to hand
Hug to hug
kiss to kiss
damn you make me weak

Roses are red
violets are blue
I just want to say
I love you.

Another side of The Fence

I came from a far city
My neighbor’s fence hides the visibility
Days and nights, I enjoy 
The lovely songs from a lady’s voice

The lyrics she delights
Pink and red flowers that bees admire
White roses along the fence
Trumpet vine weaves like a snake dance
Sunflowers edge the yard  
Purple and orange tulips in her regard
Colorful butterflies cycle
Falling in love the color and scent idols

Later her songs pull me in
Beautiful flowers put my head in a spin  
Hand in hand we walk along 
O Dear blind sight, she sang the songs

Your Departure

There are times when I see the radiance of the sun
And I’m reminded of you when it dips
Out of sight
Like you
But the radiance remains
Ever so visible
In dreams I scuttle with reptilian figures
That make your skin crawl
Demons take up residence
They transfer reality with worn out carpets, broken records
They ask over and over why
Why you didn’t love me enough to stay
Your description of me is lodged in my universe:
I wear animal skins, high heels and pink tights, I’m six feet tall
And men are afraid of me
When the sun climbs the trellis, 
The sunflowers raise their giant heads
I stand next to them in the light, 
And the reptiles hide under rocks

When I Die

When I die..
Put sunflowers in my hair, dress me 
in white and lay me to rest.
Put me on a raft and let me drift to a 
land unknown.

Tell him I loved him..
with all my heart
With every bone in my body
With every breath I took
… I loved him..

Tell him I’m in a better place with no 
pain & sorrow.
Tell him I forgive him.
And he can’t hurt me anymore. He 
was the best and worst thing that 
ever happened to me.

When I die..
Put sunflowers in my hair, dress me 
in white and lay me to rest. Put me on 
a raft and let me drift at sea.
But please don’t forget to tell him I 
loved him.

Each Part


say it slow

water spilling on a smooth earth rock

touch it softly

butterflies landing on the flowers yard

watch me smile

sunflowers rise and worship the sun

what are you wondering

stars sparkle in the sky above

do you love me

each part of you that makes you one

Sunflowers they bloom, heralding summer,
But my heart’s blossom, all year round do preen.
Deciduous the tree, that sheds in winter,
My love all seasons, remain evergreen 

The patina of your presence lingers. 
The miasma of your essence stays,
Long after my skin felt your soft fingers.
Your sudden leaving knocked me like a mace.

- In celebration of the female psyche, which leaves men cheering as they die  :o)

Butterfly will soon fly

Your face with all its grace
waits for my lips,
eyes closed,time slows
for a longer kiss.

Let the lips,only sip
nectar of love,
tender touch,slight munch
capture silky curves.

Our tongues sing the songs
finger only speak,
embarrassed,a beauty spot
plays hide and seek.

Remember, the sunflowers
waiting for the bloom,
butterfly will soon fly
well over the moon!

Stars I gaze, all night - as if in a reverie, 
Under the sky as I stand, yearning to be
Near you and admire the blue-black velvet and
Feel the breath of silence, so serene - to be
Lost in the warmth of a dream-like enchanting moment;
Oceans apart, now, still our souls merge
When the universe in unison tunes a melody, 
Entranced by the lustrous stars in the quiet of the night, 
Reflecting the charm of our love, as I gape at the
Same star you stare at from a distant land.

Summer's Love Lost

You brought me a translucence 
of amber for my burnished bouquet.
Love was an ebullience of golden wheat,
our laughter a resplendence of sunflowers.

Dawn of a new day 
Exploding rays of sunlight 
Calla lilies, sunflowers growing rapidly 
As the earth pushes up new 
Life, Passion & Love
As the Sun kisses my
Deep Bronze skin tone

Summer Bliss

Skylarks leaping
In the early morn
Their sweet song
Echoing around my head
Summer’s mild breeze
Drifting across 
A meadow of sunflowers
We wander hand in hand
I feel your thoughts
The warmth of your love
This physical chemistry
That exists
Only between us
Our summer bliss
Pure ecstasy
