Even as silver winds spin cold
Adorning snowy mantle
December's golden glory
Hands cuddle dewed chimes
Warmed by firelight's evanescence;
Flames burned by time leap
Into seasons' embrace
Pensive days cascade
Into destiny's eternity
Twirling, endowing hope
That January will bring
Interludes of global peace...
Only love endures--
Cries ache in terror's mayhem
Raking in wartime woes...
And now a questionku for you...
Wait of optimism....
Does love and hate meet halfway?
Inside my dreams, I drift
I paint myself a gift
Letting my world come alive
Palette of colors that thrive
Spangling dreams with fairytales
Bequeathing warmth to life's trails
My dreams have no illusions
Words fall without deception
Stars tiptoe in with blues
Tides bring in magnetic muse...
I tuck dreams away for a rainy day
My way of keeping sorrow at bay.
Merigold sunshine cascades
On meadows that flaunt their green
Frail petals of blossoms trail
Draping perfumed pace.
Butterflies toss the ginger air
Birds, bees sway in ballet hues
Knolls frolic in emerald , olive
As sun drips yellow
Wind cruises pearly mist
my tears on
feel the moistness of grief as my soul drips
I feel the anguish of unspoken words
as fingers touch
we hold hands
Ebon ink runs down my eyes
Flowing into my lips, it dries.
Lips find a voice in my quill
Words flow off their own free will.
Into a paper that holds
Where my dream unfolds.
Words hang on for dear life
Letting go of all the strife.
Hidden words come undone
Into rhymes and verses spun.
Words endear and endure
That is poetry's allure.
My library of thoughts bookmark
Poesy page turner leaves a spark.
My heart sings as I blow off steam
Cap is off my pen, phrases gleam.
maneuvre a porpoise sky
on chartreuse landscape
glazing loam with ivory
as chiffon wind weaves
to mantle sparkling globules
soaking the umber
to unravel synergy...
At night, I sit gazing at the moon,
Inking ambrosial silvered dewdrops;
Dancing shadows lengthen and swoon,
From mountains, flowers and treetops.
Silence speaks to me in the dark,
Hear the hushed sleep of larks in nest;
Nocturnal aromas blossom a spark,
A star presses upon my breast.
Mildewed memories stir up my mind,
Winter cold breaks upon my breath;
Sky and clouds ethereally entwined,
Sheer chill upon my skin bequeath.
Drawn into a reverie hypnotic,
Moonbeams illumine eventide in verse;
Amethyst warms aurora exotic,
Mellifluous epiphany spill echoes.
Night's syllables fall upon my ears,
Shaping thoughts, kindling cheers.
