Reconnection


Reconnection



Tenderness so long ago
Hanging about mind's edge
Taunting, teasing
Playful moments of youth



Reconnection overwhelms
Touching surface of heart
With evocative dreams
Torturing soul



Warm light emanating
From this memory
This dream of old
Expectations limitless
Falling to abyss
Of emotion


Confusion building
From this depth
Hearts withdraw
In fear that old wounds open



Friendship, reflection
Their greatest desire
And should it be
The will of Him
Someday
Maybe more

Where I Belong







Where I Belong


Closing my eyes
My mind wanders
Drifting off
In daydreams of azure
I see reflections
Of myself— swimming
In the deep oceans
That are your eyes

Soon my love
I'll be drowning
And should I perish
Then so be it
Let the world go on
Without me
Because this—
Is where I belong

Starbird Hill





In darkness awakening,
First glimpse of snow white,
Brought beauty of wonderment,
Like shimmering diamonds,
'neath new morning’s light.

A frozen paradise waited.
Oblivious to the chill,
Warm mittens and overcoats,
We rushed to the sled race,
Atop Starbird Hill.

We flew down this mountain,
Blustery wind to frozen face,
On a sheet of ice and snow.
Oh, what fun we had then,
In our Starbird race.

And as the day closed,
Its beauty wouldn’t subside.
Sleepy heads in reverence,
Thinking of day’s events,
We gently closed our eyes.

In darkness awakening,
First glimpse of snow white,
Brought beauty of wonderment,
Like shimmering diamonds,
'neath new morning’s light.

The Way it Makes Me Feel



When your eyes looked at mine,
You could see into my soul.
And I was fascinated by,
The depth of your perception.

Then a smile crossed your lips,
Like sunshine through the morning mist.
And though I don't know why,
I felt such a strong connection.

Across a crowded room,
I heard the wheels of your mind,
In synchronicity with mine,
As one together marking time.

If for only just a moment,
Look to me again and smile,
So I can look into your eyes,
And remember for all time,
The way it makes me feel.

The Poet



The poet thinks in cryptic patterns
But mostly he observes
Absorbing his surroundings
To mind—
His heart
A rhythmic extension
Of his soul

Words
Images
Thoughts
Dreams
Beliefs
Emotion
Entwined within his verse

He creates a thing of beauty
A thing we know
As Poetry

Sonnet XVIII



There is a little church beside a field.
I happ'd to pass it by just yesterday.
It truly made me wish this summer's yield.
Would bring me there before you face to face.



The colours in the sky were graceful soft.
In hues of salmon, lavendar and blue.
My head right here, but my heart was aloft.
The only thing 'twas missing there was you.


I wish that we could walk there every day.
We'd talk about today and long ago,
And holding hands we'd joke along the way,
Then laugh until our cheeks were all aglow.


I hope that we can find a moment soon,
To visit there one lovely afternoon.

The Colour of Confusion




Entertaining hands
The colour of confusion
Manipulating like a monarch
In absolute power

Audience of dying voices
Muted—
Will obey

Sonnet VIII




I swiped my card at 7:39.
But payroll says my paycheck will be docked,
Because I didn't get to work on time?
I wasn't due to work till 8:00!


I just don't understand how this can be.
I always call ahead if I'm delayed.
It doesn't make a bit of sense to me,
For thirty minutes clocked to not be paid.


Two supervisors I had to pursue,
To figure out that it was their misplay.
I hope they don't perceive me as a shrew.
That's not the image I hope to display.


I vow tomorrow I will not be late,
‘Cause I'll be there by 7:38.

Stolen Moments



Memories of a love so long ago,
Weigh upon my dreams tonight,
And drift on as the sweetest of distractions,
Into my waking life.

A few stolen moments whispering,
Taunting my soul with the hunger
For more of him.

Perhaps we should have loved as if
We'd never have the chance again.
Plucked from his life as easily as our Earth
Turns to greet the morning sun.

A few stolen moments whispering,
Taunting my soul with the hunger
For more of him.

Lord, please let him come to me.
Shower those memories so sweet upon his heart.
Let us steal a few more moments...
Or perhaps a lifetime.

Good Intention




Seeds of evil lie in root
Covering like a thicket
About the innocent one
Deluding common sense
Of an honorable heart
Deficient of judgement
In the folly
Of good intention


Moments of clarity lie
Within the tangled labyrinth
Reaching skyward-
Neurologically twisted
Thwarted by derangement
Never to be unveiled
Within the eye
Of the broken mind

Spring's Solicitude


 source



With winter's icy breath fleeting,
Spring's solicitude brushes,
Divine nectarous orchards,
With an ambiance of color.


Softly she summons,
The sweetest of blossoms,
To deliver the fruit,
Of summer ambrosia.

Fairies... a sneak peek

This is a very tiny sneak preview of the painting that I have been working on in my "spare" time.
Since I haven't updated in awhile, I just wanted you all to know that I haven't stopped creating! :)  I'm not sure when I will finish this piece, but hopefully soon.
