beautiful, beauty, best friend, light, moon, sun,
by Poet Destroyer A |
The shining light hides behind my eyes,
Comes in a super nova surprise
My spirit glides into the skies,
Spreading the perfect heat like the sunrise
I was like a diamond under the beauty of the ocean!
My current rides out with smooth motions,
Leaving a taste with intense emotion
Captured by my tides, sunk to my love potion
The sun sends my waves like a mirage of snow
I got the moon to favor upon my glow
With every star touching my inner soul
A glimpse of darkness in my light entwining with a massive flow
Blinded by my own ECLIPSE!
My sun & moon collide
Until the day we both touch lips
by Silent One |
When the last rain drop has fallen
and final word has been spoken.
When mercy is no longer our saviour,
remember, each time your heart beats,
with every sigh on the tip of your tongue,
my only wish was to forever love you,
stronger than the light that shone at sunrise,
warmer than the rays from that golden orb,
more powerful than the radiance of the moon
and with greater devotion than the stars.

color, life, poems,
Paint the world of words so bright
Brush the canvas with pure delight
Be the rainbow coming out of a storm
The sunrise of a beautiful morn
Paint the world as you would wish
For what is written expresses it
Hearts maybe black or blue
A bright smile colors I love you
Paint it as a blind man sees
Hear it as the deaf conceives
Blank spaces upon your walls
Interpretations are meant for all
Paint the world and let it be
You are you and I am me
No left,right or middle lanes
Colors are one and the same…write your name

appreciation, nature, summer,
What's not to love about a summer day?
Kissed by the sun, the warmth of its embrace
To feel the cleanse from sweat at work and play
While honeysuckle breezes cool my face
With hillsides blanketed in purple vetch
Magenta morning glories and light blues
Imagine all the butterflies they fetch
A scene to romance any poet's muse
But when it gets too hot, I seek the shade
Barefoot in clover 'neath tall sycamores
Or take a watermelon down to wade
A spring fed creek, to cool, while I explore
That evening, in the swing, I watch fireflies
Then pray I wake to see one more sunrise

Oh summer what have you done to me
so many flirtatious winks teasingly
undressing me with every wisp of
a welcomed heat filled breath
Oh summer, oh how you melt me
with those gazing sunrise eyes blinking
and those sweet high noon kisses swimming
fogging up another afternoon aviator sky
Oh summer your warm touches caress
and I'm a mess blushing into a golden
bronze affair wondering when you're not there
if you will ever come back again
Oh summer your nights delight with fire
and a backyard breeze harmony underneath
a blanket of stars and a lemonade moon
hushed I swoon knowing I'm in love
by Connie Marcum Wong |
reflected by the sea
When dawn kisses each
As sunrise pierces
fleecy clouds of blush
A canvass bides the
eager artist's brush.
Our Banyon bids adieu
to fowl in flight...
Their songs reverberate
in morning light
Attesting to the joy
each dawn excites
In explosive colors
which Sol ignites.
As breezes blow through
azure skies above
I share divinely Dawn's
sweet gifts of love.

Merry Christmas (Mele Kalikimaka) from Hawaii….Aloha
by Silent One |
analogy, perspective, philosophy,
love floats like a snowflake,
until it melts in your hand.
Then it falls,
like an Autumn leaf,
eventually swept away in the breeze.
Sometimes love offers mercy,
like April showers to rose petals,
but no rain can save from decay.
Love wants to be free like a kite,
flying colourfully in bright blue skies,
but grey clouds ruin its flight.
One day love will descend like sunset.
Maybe we are born to fall -
but love will always ascend again like sunrise.
by Liam Mcdaid |
beautiful, flower, heart, love, peace, sea, smile,
Smiling hotly you're the flame captured underneath
burning with a sunrise golden gleam frosted
Sparkling within dewdrops crystals crash
over oceans waves rise and fall to grace
At your feet adoring they kiss salt saluting promise
kneeling upon the sand footprints hold ground held
Those inside one thousand memories wrapped forever
perfect jewel you are the pearl of a deep sea always crowned
Lustre of one rainbow washed clean cut perfect flower
white lily from the heart of love you brought peace
by Kp Nunez |
beauty, god, sea, thanksgiving,
Watching sunrise, shoreline's ablaze
Love letter sent from Thee
I sing a psalm, an Easter palm
And start my day with glee.
Watching sunset, shoreline's agleam
A note Thou sent with smile
I heave a sigh, a love's reply
And thank God for this isle.

devotion, life, metaphor, spiritual, sun,
Find in each other a kindred spirit
That speaks divinely, without words.
Auras coalesce in euphoric passions
Warming hearts and bodies
That rise to ethereal heights.
Sentient beings aware of the gift
Love employs to infinite degrees,
Valuing the depths of harmonic harmony.
Let sunrise penetrate its heavenly hues
In veneration of nature connecting
With the psyche, intuitive of karmic
Laws in recompense of past regrets.
Unveil the opaque shrouds that keep
Truth occult by delivering the naked soul.

12th grade, beautiful, character, feelings, how i feel, imagery, imagination,
Sketch the sunset leaving today behind,
sinking in the footsteps of yesterday.
And feel the ripple of all life combined,
empty your thoughts; take all but love away.
Emblazon upon your mind a blue sky
gilded by the golden hue of sunrise.
And color a dragonfly zipping by,
watching its beauty materialize.
Blend the yellow of a buttercup's glow
with flickering flashes of firefly lights.
And walk the Earth, yet let no footprint show,
respecting life by honoring its rights.
Mix well until presumptions fall apart
and thus reveal the color of my heart.
by Connie Marcum Wong |
love, romance, stars,
Under the Stars
The cobalt sky has many eyes;
they're brightest just before sunrise
Sprinkled amidst the indigo
we stop to let the sandman sow
Glittering `cross the peaceful night
we view a shooting star take flight;
The sky becomes a starlit show
as sea reflects its silver glow,
In awe we kiss and say goodnight.
I watch as you walk from my sight,
soft . . . starlit.

desire, i miss you, inspirational love, journey, love, repetition, word play,
Each day was a gift
Every sunrise breathtaking
Music moved me
But ever since our first night,
nothing is as beautiful

Once again the sun fades into the distant sky
I gaze up at the stars to imagine the twinkle in your eye
Though a sunset for me, is a sunrise for you
It's at this time each day my heart is feeling blue
Together are hearts are one, yet half a world apart
I know that shooting star is filled with love from within your heart
With a full moon slowly rising overhead into the nights sky
May it be a sunrise of beauty for you, as it kisses the morning sky
by Rhonda Johnson-Saunders |
addiction, betrayal, hope, trust,
Over his lies
Comes with life
To share my heart
on longest days
Fretting no more
Tower of faith
Brightens dark days
My stride returns

eve, nature, nice, night, romantic love, sun, sunset,
Huge red-orange sun slowly recede,
Upon the sky seem to bleed;
Whispers of night, calling home,
Such sunset days rarely spent alone.
Look ahead to starry skies;
Not time for early goodbyes.
Without love cannot the heart grow-
A new day comes beyond the rainbow!
Warm Paris breeeze gently blow-
Roses atop the bureau;
Music with a certain ease;
Smooth jazz, if you please.
In darkness of shadows, waits he!
The night is young-for me!
Stars appear, quiet avenue.
Farewell dawn skies of baby blue.
When from misty dreams awakes,
When tomorrow sunrise overtakes,
Come listen music play,
On gold terrace of the sunny day!

Last leg home, the sun setting in the polluted haze of the city,
looks Like I feel, my thoughts a golden glow, every brushstroke
I've painted filling the sky with my love for you...a painting
that will begin anew....with the sunrise
........with the sunrise
Though your footprints belong to you,
my heart..... travels your path
Endless, as it should be,
your destiny rewards my memory

cry, loneliness, lost love,
Like the wolf cries
Screaming foreboding skies
Yelling for your love till sunrise
The erring echoes of your love reprise
Tangled tears that follow surmise
Bitter sorrows capsize
With empty eyes

christian, good morning, morning,
Stepping into the morning sunrise,
I leave behind the veil of night.
The sun greets my sleepy eyes,
as the world unfolds before my sight.
The dew freshly coats the waiting ground
with kisses from the loving sky.
As the orchestra of creation sounds,
it's choir of birds sings their lullaby.
What gifts does this morning bring,
will love win the day?
Closer to the Lord I will tightly cling,
till we meet again to pray.
Every day leaves it's footprints
on the heart and on the mind.
And every man his dreams spent,
searching for the treasures the day has left behind.

What is inside a human heart
Is it sunshine warm and bright
Maybe fluffy soft white clouds
Or a full moon on a dark still night
Is there precious perfumed flowers
Or peaceful gentle rain
The glistening on a calm ocean
Or the joy of a sunrise and sunset again
Is it abundant with laughter
Brimming with memories and treasures
Or simply overflowing with love
At the awe of life’s pleasures
by Deb M |
beauty, feelings, love, nature,
I heard the wind quietly whisper your name
I saw your tears fall in the morning rain
I heard your laughter on a spring day crisp and bright
I felt your embrace In the warmth of the sunlight
I heard your wisdom in the lapping of the tide
I felt your love in a magical sunrise
I know you watch over me
I feel it in natures sweet majesty
by Panagiota Romios |
heart, joy, love, sensual,
Reveal to me, do!
How you carried off my heart and it now lives within you.
I can see it brightly alive in your godlike chest.
You had the loving, brown-eyed chutzpah to magically place
both our names upon it and yes, with the family crest.
Reveal for me, do!
How you, at every sunrise, serves me a cup of steaming
And a shower together, Agapi Mou, the crest of jasmine jouissance!
Swimming as one, in life effortlessly, joyfully, in loves' rainbowed,
forever, dancing cadence!

beautiful, love, mountains, sea,
( Whitney Duet )
Clouds softly pass
A band of seagulls fly high.
The air's cool
And the sun's warm
Warms my heart
His love shines upon my face.

blessing, , western,
Remnants have been stained the color of
The blood moon
Hidden beneath the boulder that is Western
The glory of sunrise has been buried
With promises of eternal light
Fruits of darkness lay crushed under
Waves of chanting the righteous
Many trails the night traveller takes
Lead to love
Every hand is needed now to sow
Forgotten remnants to every corner
Where fear of darkness huddles
True love bears fruit even under cover
Do not be afraid
Joy will come to you who has no
Fear of receding light
Love will be your

cheer up, moving on,
Love my name ~ but never take it
Feel my heart ~ but never crush it
Read my words ~ but never destroy them
Warm yourself in the sun ~ but share it with me
Listen for my sad song ~ comfort me
See my smile ~ laugh along with me
A poem from my soul ~ I will be happy to share
A thought taking birth
Eyes that see even in deep darkness
A human being
I travel in my little boat in the open sea ~ there's room for you too
The whole world in front of our feet
Sunrise and sunset
An adventure ~ if you want
Together ~ always
Not in a war zone
an intoxication of love
A-L Andresen :)
