    End of story

  • Inhaling my own tranquility;
  • I put the North Star on my back
  • and write you down in poetry.
  • Forever more

  • The
  • Moon peeps
  • Upon our
  • Gentle whispers
  • Where wild passions flare and bloom into
  • Emotions surrendering to love’s call-
  • A Cupid’s rite;
  • Savouring
  • Ardor’s
  • Thirst ,
  • In the warmth of your silence
  • Words come to me like starburst
  • Every word that I breathe
  • Becomes a poem :
  • Sweet incantation ,
  • Nestling your heartbeat
  • In the quickening of my pulse
  • Temptation becomes devotion.

    Born Again

    Golden tapestry of dawn’s loveliness…a lucent glow of morning bliss

    Sun toasts the earth to tan-rousing cuddled eyelids , feeling the moistened kiss of morning dew.

    Leaves flutter like braids on an indulgent wind under a sky embroidered with crystalline clouds…

    Satin ribbon of a zephyr traces rouge on cheeks to playfully trace the hem of my dress as I step on lush of grass –feeling the interludes of sunlight’s warmth…

    Chorus of velvet madness beguiles senses as wings fling themselves on blooms and trees, trilling chimes from dainty throats– their beaks twirling on fragrance as buds unfurl ….

    And the earth and air are born again.

    Celestial Sax

  • Ruby moon;
  • A purple sky folds into stars-
  • Heartbeat of a turquoise twilight

  • In the blue coolness of an acoustic air…holding rhythms in the starlit touch of a gentle night- where dreams are tucked in a starship —awakening evensong of shimmering shooting comets…
  • A luminous Milky Way blazes into my eyes.
  • Neutron stars burst on Spring Tides… a moon-blanched beach glimmers on wisps of cerulean waves…
  • I feel the breath flow from my soul… caressed by a mystic, iridescent magnetic moon.
  • Singing the blues

    Thank you , George, The Lord Of Music and fabulous lyrics.

  • Broken -hearted people
  • Shelter tears in their eyes
  • Living in this world
  • With smiling faces to disguise
  • Pain is like flying with a broken wing
  • Swaying like a leaf in the wind
  • Life can just blow your mind
  • Feeling brain dead, smiles no more shined
  • Words don’t come easy
  • Bottled up, they burst like crazy
  • A wrong word here, a wrong word there
  • Yesterday, today, tomorrow, I despair
  • I need a place to hide, far away
  • Where I don’t feel the need to talk or say
  • Finding my sad song, I’ll sing the blues
  • Finish my crying, I cut my heartstrings loose
  • No matter what, the sun still shines
  • The moon comes out, the stars enshrine
  • The lights never go out, come day or night
  • It’s only poetry that gives me delight .

    The wind

  • I listen to the wind as it rocks and rolls,
  • Over meadows, brooks, mountains, knolls.
  • The wind looks to the grass and trees to sing,
  • Stories the sky and clouds to the earth , bring.
  • Ancient fables of seasons that spring,
  • Tales of Mother Earth’s awakening.
  • Flowers breathe into the air.. glorious scents .
  • Gossamer lyrical song-bird presents.
  • Quivering voices enchanting the wind ,
  • Rainbow of imaginings spilling, tinged.
  • Vocalizing haiku- sun struck birds,
  • Draping breaths, ardor stirred.
  • Birds, bees, butterflies, slip-sliding,
  • Down garden paths brightly painting.
  • The wind beguiles my eyes, ruffles my hair,
  • Tasseled zephyr wands bestowing happiness everywhere.
