...Over Shantytown

If wishes were moments in dreams of sleep Tweaking in rhymes so deep, sort of speak With a moon glow over shantytown Feeling your breath, a silent wisp I would have volumes of pages to keep And press flowers to wile away poetic hours Leaving trivialities where they belong If stanzas were bold in print with your scent I would have gilded petals past tense As your caresses...Read On

...of Marigolds

The woods unfold with meadows, and brooks, bound by gardens of marigolds. With a basket of sonnets, and a faraway moon, we play amongst the shadows. In copse of trees, needles dance, on the rind of a knotty pine,  as rust turns to dusk. As a halo of light,  and a banner of rays swoon down,  a glowing night of soon be. On a whisk of wisp, sensual bliss, with a smile, we kiss,...Read On

Riders In The Sky

Its either do or die When all is said, And poetically spoken  About tokens of halos. Threading the needle of life  Into the storm of the eye,  On the plains of yens, Only angels can fly. Stirring desires of fires,  On flatlands of sins, Like cyclonic winds Grabbing reins to my heart. As if riders in the sky, Thunder saddles up, When all is said, Only angels can fly....Read On

Walking Among Daffodils

It was a day just like today, I remember, The beginning of spring, a day of fresh beauty. Vanished were the harsh and bitter winds of winter. The landscape dull and heavy under a sullen sky, And the very earth hard like iron, cold and dead. But that was all forgotten now, just like a dream From which we had awakened into a new world, Redolent with hope and promise, lifting...Read On

I Will Always Love You

Better later than never...

We became instant friends I guess way back in Elementary School You were my protector and knight and I thought you were so cool Then High School came and we both joined the dating scene You were supportive of my choices and never said anything mean You were my go-to-guy, my confidant and real pal Never once though did you ever ask me to be your gal You were with me through break-ups and...Read On

Thoughts From The Darkside

There comes a time in each poet’s life When it is best to admit defeat, And walk away into the darkness To tread the bleak vale of tears alone, Leaving the field to the stronger man. Love is a merciless battleground Where deceit and lies are the weapons Employed by an unscrupulous foe To win the hand of a fair lady, Gainst which a true heart cannot prevail. Honest pledges of...Read On

From Sipping Shallow Tea

Skipping over the monotonous lines Of black roses and molting quills  The melancholia at dusk Saying sayonara to my past harks From sipping shallow tea As ebony has turned to scrimshaw And words are fairer than air With a bust of your stature I stare On the mantle of my new found soul Scuttling chapters of gray tomes As your kisses rekindle my life And my wrought is now naught ...Read On

A Tempest Of Lust

I proffered my body, and gave you my heart

Your love was warm, like deep summer time, Passion personified, could your body be mine? You stood there and watched, beckoning me, To make love to you, to set my cravings free. You saw my thirst, and offered the ocean blue, Took all I could give, the moon, the stars, even the sunset too, You measured my lust, by how deep I would fall, And judged my need, by how low I was willing...Read On

Petals In The Wind

As the pendulum of the metronome 'tocked At my humble writing desk Devilishly aroused, with an instigator's brush With the rhythm of the ticking clock Bewitched by a musing's kiss With a serpentine's wish And sensuality well defined You caress the evergreens of my mind Like potpourri and a wafting aria  Your touch, warming my blush As a shadow in the dark Melting my tallow As the ink...Read On

Merely to Cherish

Is one allowed merely to cherish, Or must one also offer their love. Do the two walk hand in hand As we did once in better times. So simple yet complex When we plumb the depths Of definite devotion. And there was a deep devotion For me. At least, for me. I still cherish the thoughts, The memories Of time spent Touching  Together and across The void. Still cherish. Would it ever...Read On

To My Love

For she who moves me

As I lie in bed, you come to me Your body next to mine. Enfolding me in your arms, Your heart a furnace against mine. How did it start? A gentle poke, a kind word. Time reveals you, You become a presence. Like a negative you develop in my mind. Words waft between us, Innocent ethereal words. The image develops now revealed, Unfolding, as flower spreading its petals in the sun. ...Read On

Shake My Willows

The effervescence of you In the quiver of my mind Beneath a copse of trees, Down a path, a distance dream And a scent of love,  As you dance pantomime Like lilacs on satin sheets, Your smile adorns my memory Of drifting forest leaves, And the whispering night breeze  Shaking the willows  As my muse sleeps  On the midnight clover Next to my chest Embracing my telltale heart...Read On

While I Steal A kiss

Oh! What mortals you and I  With poetic elocution  Before the fat lady sings As she warbles off key  On a symphony's love song Breathing scent of flowers And wild weeds at lusty hours  Feeling warmth of your breasts While dancing on panes of grass  Like a weathering spring Beneath showers of a mist  On paths of new mown While I steal a kiss Before the fat lady sings As she warbles off...Read On

You, at Evening

A beauty comes to me at evening. A partial sun bestows anew Its purple salve of shadowing. Determined birds now dart to do Last things. A softer light is ebbing Along the corn’s last upright row To dusk, where gravest crows are winging. We see that this day, too, must go. It’s now I wish that you were coming, Feet bare upon the still-warm grass, Hips swaying with our long day’s wanting, So...Read On

Twinkling From A Jar

By far, my midnight star With a light twinkling from a jar As if hanging from above On the corner of a rainbow In proximity of my sleeping dreams And like a Grand Harp of a zodiac's swoon I feel your soothing caress As your breath quilts my flesh Laying your head on my chest With dawn on the horizon And dew like snow In fields of lilies beneath a willow A warming...Read On

Shattered Truth

Broken hearts heal slowly...

Deliver me This package broken shattered by false illusion a sledgehammer of deception. Mistrust leaving scars created on loves jagged edges. Emotional cuts so deep can't be medicated or,  covered with your tepid bandage of false covenants. Living in fear of yesterday's choice's, mind blocked in a  mental prison sentence. No trust without forgiveness no pardon without purge. We do our...Read On

Poetic Fancy

With a will of my quill I spun  A dream from the dusk just past As your breasts soothe my flesh I dreamt a lyrical tune... Antebellum Lea Of poetic fancy and delightful tea As she smiled with blushing cheeks Kissing my chest on the plains of my heart As her fingers caressed my penis... Antebellum Lea Beneath a wash of the morning dawn With golden rings we will wed As...Read On

Bordering Crocuses

With a longing for sentiment This old 'losopher dabbles in paint From the easel of my soul And the landscapes bordering crocuses  With a pallet of prosing words As your lips seek my caress On the futon beneath the oak Where the windmill grinds Beyond the tip of your brushing blush As you bare your alabaster wear Laying in seasonal comfort While touching me with a kiss With a breath...Read On

Mirage

Holding mysef erect while her ghostly effect becomes my mirage.

She comes and goes like some vaporous waves, Some shimmering ghostly apparitions, Undulating on the horizon, Lilting in and out of my life's journey. Is she real or just some blurry banshee mirage, Kissing my senses for but a moment in time, Here then gone, a budding perfumed scent On the air, filling me with a promise to ease My ache and want for sweetness only. Where does she hide,...Read On

'Neath Our Wings

With God's shadow 'neath our wings In oceans of new moan grass Raining down a gilded glow  Sharing wedding bells quell While caroling a marigold sing Whispering songs and compose In waves of caressing meadows  On a carpet of romantic clover As the morning tides swell  On this day our bands of gold  And gilded vows of prose As bobbin of life's thread begins  With God's shadow 'neath...Read On

The Voyage

The boat sets out gently propelled, By the currents of time, Making its way towards a meandering River. The currents draw it onward, Inexorably towards faster waters. Past shoals and rapids ever forward, Pausing only to embark a companion, To share the voyage. Strange lands glide past, Exotic landscapes where one companion departs, Only to be replaced by another. Ever faster flowing past...Read On

Our Secret Garden

The beauty and passion of the garden

The evening breeze, wafting over orange blossom Mixed with the aroma of blackcurrant leaves The birds and the bees, in midst of garden’s bosom A gift for you, a spray of freshly-cut sweet peas The thyme and the rosemary, oregano and tarragon A herbarium of love, a sweetly scented verse Words crafted for you, my lovely paragon Written ere the day ends, and sealed in a purse Give me...Read On

She Loved Undersized Men

Praise for the tradesmen

She loved under-sized men, For her it was a yen. To find a small man Was always the plan She did it again and again.   The smaller the better, Without a French letter, She rode them til dawn, Their manliness gone, She felt ever the better.   She loved the smaller size And often closed her eyes As she took them all in (Balls to her chin), And delivered an oral surprise.   What was it...Read On

Sonnet: Love Undefeated

I have seen the darkness of unknowing, Stood on the edge of the final abyss, The fear of an pointless future growing, The bleak opposite of eternal bliss. I believed that I had found happiness, My life joined to a better one than I, But jealousy has conspired to unbless Our union, and cause our love to die. To satisfy their own malignant lust, Someone broke in like a thief in the night,...Read On

Come Back To Me

Just a silly love song

When you are tired Or just feeling empty When you've had enough Come back to me. When the disco's over And your eyes can see You are all alone Come back to me. When nothing makes sense And the world becomes mean I am here with open arms Come back to me. If ever you're afraid That there is no such we Wait just a minute longer Come back to me Quiet the noises Slow your heartbeat Move a...Read On

Surrender

When you're in love you surrender

Looking into their eyes, your heart skips a beat Forever and always between you, heat The imperfections become perfection You throw everything aside for them, nothing else matters. You surrender to each other. And when nothing else matters, the little things are forgotten Just the happiness between you that is always begotten You want everything from each other Everything that you...Read On

Cyber Love or Cyber Games

Is it love or just a game.

Words that you write To your keyboard lover Could it be a tad trite When you're together Love found on a screen Best to keep as a fantasy Keep it to a particular scene You must keep your sanity Do you share your life To make it seem real Life of a real wife Maybe best to conceal If in pain should you share Should you just stay in the moment Do you think the other really cares Do you...Read On

I Love Norah O'Donnell

Confession is good for the soul

My breath was conquered by her beauty; my mind was numbed by her face, My heart stolen by the blue of her eyes, my soul manacled by her grace. If the Irish saved civilization, St Patrick is responsible for her birth, She is heir to all that is good since the Irish arrived on Earth. Her laughter is like crystal; her eyes the bluest I’ve seen. She reigns as a goddess, a deity within my dreams....Read On
