Moonbeams dance


moonbeams dance on my pillow
this unknown summer night
venus blooms like cereus
in an ebony sky
a hushed wind carries 
My dreams to you
I pick up my pen...

Of Shooting Sunbeams

I watch sunbeams dance on a turquoise sea
Alabaster clouds swirl round the golden sun
The sunlight warms and invigorates me
Watching tasseled shadows is so much fun.

Alabaster clouds swirl round the golden sun
Melting azure waves stretch out on the shore
Meandering warm sands, naked toes burn
On varnished sea shells, tales of ocean lore.

Melting azure waves stretch out on the shore
Lavender skies arch over beaming waves
On zephyr's back sunning themselves birds soar
In sun-lit sparkling seas fishes play.

Lavender skies arch over beaming waves
The sunlight warms and invigorates me
In sun-lit sparkling seas fishes play
I watch sunbeams dance on a turquoise sea.

Summer Dreaming

A Balassi Stanza

In the gold of sunlight,
I watch birds fly, alight
On lush trees and fragrant blooms;
A carefree, sundry spree.
Wind carouses with glee
Murmuring its bouquet tunes
Where azure skies lilt, blush
A heady summer rush:
Harvesting tangy perfumes.

Monarchs rise from slumber,
Nectarine hued cruiser,
Where ambrosial dreams throng
Meadows, glades evergreen
Dazzling eyes with their sheen;
The air flutes with birdsong
Skylarks, Chaffinchs hum, waltz
On dewed breeze somersaults,
Enchanting me, summerlong.




Balassi stanza can be defined as a stanza or verse form consisting of nine lines with syllable count 667667667, rhyming structure is bbaccadda.
The Balassi stanza is named after Hungarian Balint Balassi regarded as the first great lyricist of the Hungarian language.

The Sapphic Stanza

Blue and clear, the sky stretches over valleys

Cloudless splendour heralding summer’s fervour.

Autumn’s colours fade as the flush of summer

Brightens life vivid .

Haiku Yarn

Tempest on the moon
Storms ripple tides;
My eyes share water
With the ocean and sea.

Stars dot the connect
Once upon a keyboard
Asterisk, ellipses
Breaking the silence.

I carpe diem
So much confusion
Searching for the perfect word--
In poetry we shall never part.

Bard broken
Eating my heart out
That is so self consuming:
The clock's moving hands.

Short on oxygen
Deforestation;
Human extinction
Dust to dust.

Playing hooky
Green behind the ears;
Wilful liberation
Ignoramus on roll-call.

Telepathy
My soul takes a breath
From your soul-
Rainbow's end.

Killer looks
Intrigued by
Your silence---
For your eyes only.

Sting
Song of the desert rose
Cactus dreams 
Of rain.....

Slipping On A Teardrop

I slip on a teardrop to fall into a diamond sky. Sapphire winds glaze my eyes, potent tears drip through midnight hours in an ocean of moonlit tides.

Like a shooting star
Travelling light years in a multiverse;
I ache for a wish.

Swirling in aromas of petalled darkness, tangerine stars flame into vignettes that glide on musings in night's primitive caress.

Lingering...
Whisper of unmet dreams-
My breath draws a sigh.

The bruise in my heart sweetens the pain of yearning, heartstrings pull a song that brings the sky into my heart.

Soliloquy--
Flower-child swathes herself
Bohemian

Starlight grazes my aurora spirit, reveries silken in the gauze of soul's palette--tints of dawn's melody and solace of darkness trace.

Journey of shared tears
A path of forgotten love--
Heartbeat of my dreams.

Her Twinflame

She sees his face in the white of moon
In azure reveries, she feels his soul holding her in the indigo of night ..
In the hush of sleep, his lips ignite in a moonbeams song..eyes caressed by starlight- humming a lullaby .. a jasmine rhapsody on a stardust cloud
She inhales the scent of his tranquility as he lulls her to the hues of the night
They breathe together to become complete
A sacred blending of two souls
Waltzing across the starlight.
In the light of dawn, as the sun laughs into her eyes
she finds a memory living in her heartbeat
a temptation of hope..
Flaming into an endless devotion.
