A Bagel's Q

And as faith and happenstance we dance Until we get our two-step back In lieu of the canvas on skies baby blue Beneath an umbrella of morning's dew    With white clouds of a bagel's Q In meadows of goldenrod and Queen Anne's lace  As soft autumn breeze sweeps your hair   With kisses to hold us over Until we get our two-step back                    ...Read On

On Our Pillow

A whispering pulse traced a path to my heart As the twitter-down of dusk fell And lowered its crown over the clover As your lips parted and warm breath touched And the cockle-shells echoed a rising tide As poetic thoughts lay easy on my mind In titillation of a summer eve As love and serenity lulled me to sleep And when the white clouds of Hanover Rained down a silent shower ...Read On

Diamond Embers

Feeling bucolic in my solitude As sorghum boils the harvested cane The sweets just forested from fields of stalks Stiring my emotions sparking the tenders Of undying love In the inglenook beside the hearth As you quilt a patching flannel And your eyes sparkle as if diamond embers My words derive from costal tides and blue skies In tall timbers of a green forest Sensual...Read On

Against My Window

When I sent her a song of love She released a turtledove  Into the air it flew with a coo As she autographed my heart And when she sang a melody Her fingers played strings of harps  Beyond the sunset of her smiling kind As the turtledove nest against my window And in the melancholia of the dusk Everything was all starry-bright When I sent her a song of love Over...Read On

Graying Of The Brows

At the graying of my brows And the clock stood watch Tick-tocking a dark song Like a pendulum rung And the moths danced 'Neath flames I twiddled With visions of whispers  In dreadnought of my lair And with a silence of the chill Tracing your beauty on the wall A penumbra cast a thought With a shadowing call As my old heart felt a pulse Smiling to pinchers of your lips And...Read On

Persnickety

As shadows of my mind follow my threads Of woebegones and darkerning lore I feel the warmth of your breasts With the scent of chestnuts in your hair  Easing my persnickety And when cataracts cloud my eyes   I will have memories of your smiling kind As a new dawn awakens my panomime   With words of romance forestalling    Of woebegones and darkerning lore      ...Read On

Calling Winds

With the chilling air and the coming of winter Lay a frost on the heather and calling winds   As the rum in my pewter warms the spirits And youe love tenders my heart Lay a frost on the heather and challenging sins As kisses rain down from your lips aglow   And when the ice is upon the pond We will respond in humankind   Making love on a quilt of life Until the tapers dim in our eyes ...Read On

Silken Sands

When shades of dark rain down a dusk And seashells wash upon silken sands    On life's endless dreams of an encounter And whispers come caroling a hark  Of lust and connotations in your smile Muffling kisses with lips like sweet truffles While shadowing me with caressing fingers As my imagination lingers And seashells wash upon silken sands     Upright in our land of dreams ...Read On

Another World

Stars. Millions of them. Suns, solar systems, galaxies… Possibilities. Other worlds. Other lives. Could there be a world like ours, somewhere out there, hidden among the glittering pinpricks that dot the night sky? Could there be another you , another me , lovers so close, they feel as one? Do hearts flutter when their hands touch, eyes light up at first sight of each other? Are...Read On

The mask

Broken and unsure is how you found me  shattered pieces of who once was there  each filled with pain for none to see hidden behind this mask I share The mask was my refuge to wear It disguised who I wanted you to see Hidden safe waiting to feel without fear  unconvinced you could truly love me We've found in each other something rare Soulmates forever that is so true Pet to her Master...Read On

Tenderly

Only in my lonely I pined In my solitude forgotten 'Neath gabfest of perching fowls Whispering innuendoes Now as the time choir the hour Feeling you near, tenderly As your kisses take me away I disembark from a shroud As you lay your head on my chest Giving up the sheets To the zephyr of your breath Asleep in bed Feeling you near, tenderly ...Read On

Poetic Burns

As the smoking ashes settle on my poetic burns And the fleece of words go unheard Yet the metal of our love goes untarnished As the spark of the candle shines And on the stones of the hearth We renew the planting of our troth As the teakettle whistles And the steam ascends As the smoking ashes settle on my poetic burns      ...Read On

Love's Maypole

Feeling the efforts of an Autumn's whimper Soft like a sweeten porridge  In hushaby as we now whisper Sinning upon a bed of fleece and wool With the pyres of lust feeding our frenzy  After cantering around love's maypole As a soft breeze fly about your hair In evernesss and green clover Feeling the efforts of an Autumn's whimper In hushaby as we now whisper              ...Read On

Lamp House

      With love and a quintet of bassoons When my dreams arrive on tide And the light in the lamp house shines Over a cresting cursory, sky blue As a soft sounder of waves wash upon the sand The glint in your eyes, emerald green Fill me up with your gentle being Scenting the depth in your lovely bosom With love and a quintet of bassoons Six fathoms deep in my mind's focus When...Read On

Dipping My Stick

Like wails of a banshee the tides crashed As fog settled in like bouillon soup In dark of an occurring dusk As sensual words forsake my pen Of gloom and doom in my spins  But with your beautiful being Bring thoughts of sleighbells and snow   As on this eve of twenty and five Your stockings hung on the bed post And with a kiss of moist dew   I in my flannels whisper my love   As...Read On

Close Proximity

With articulation at times I stumble In close proximity of sensual words  And love prongs But when the sins of yore Arouse my chore benearh the cypress My mind chants of poetic glee And wedding vows Of tomorrow's calling noon As I lift your veil of virginal white And while in the clergy I repent As with angels you were sent In close proximity of sensual words                ...Read On

Promontory

With a forever walk Upon life's shores  Feeling the moments of silence As echoes of emotions whisper And your spirt takes my hand On promontory's isle of beach Wading in low tide On God's everlasting sand We kiss-a-way life's blues And caress the noonday sun Upon life's shore As the lamphouse winks          ...Read On

Waters Of The Fall

Built of earthen stones and red clay Where the Barley house stood And the old mill crackled In fields of pine cones  We met on an autumn's night   And now it's ashes and dust   Now but a shadow where we kissed Taking our wedding vows Stands a stone of granite In the woods near the cascade And mountain memories I recall Of ribbons in your hair And now that I'm gray and old With cataracts in...Read On

Trail Of Antiquity

As I fell a step in love on a trail of antiquity While trekking a gait in my wayfaring canter Beneath the medallion sunset As I felt a soft brush touch with a blush The easel of my soul while over the moon In my poetic medium fostering midnight stanzas And with it came lips of gold with a kiss Varnishing a smile and wearing a halo As I fell a step in love on a trail...Read On

The Shoreline

On Love and Loss

The Liquid stream that fills your veins Blood made from the water, from whence you and I came. The Blood that made our bond so deep bleeds from wounds I cannot staunch its flow; perhaps I do not wish it so. I loved you once, I still do. Although you left me with a bleeding heart, time won’t heal, I recall the hours and days, of unbridled passion that time can’t steal. On lonely days...Read On

I Became a Believer

I knew it the minute I met you. I became a believer.~

Any man can say words I long to hear While slowly unzipping my satin dress An audience of one as I step out naked   But not  everyone believes in true love Appreciating your soul as you bare it Raw unapologetic absolute nakedness   To believe in love means hiding nothing All the parts of yourself offered freely, Two become one in a single existence.   For me love is about...Read On

Soulmates

Together forever

Where do I start?  What's it all about? A tale of love? A story of two souls? A meeting of minds? A love affair, no doubt! We met, we argued The youngster so brash She knew it all, or so she thought Her comment of course was slightly skewed. A mutual friend, mutual respect is found The flirting begins, both guarded of course But the friendship is grown A surprise for both, slowly comes round....Read On

I Get Lost

I love to get lost with you.

I get lost in your eyes. I get lost in your kisses. I get lost in your embrace. I get lost as your fingers trace. I get lost in your sighs. I get lost in your lust filled cries. I get lost in your ecstasy. I get lost in your desires. I get lost in your soul. I get lost in your heart. I get lost in your love. With you I love to get lost. ...Read On

They Met At The Coffee Shop

At the coffee shop waiting Two souls glance at each other Each ordered a coffee with bacon They wonder if the other has a lover Both try to find the courage To say something to the other one Each of them get discouraged They both could use the fun A song plays they both smile She asks him if it's a favorite Each like the other's style He comments on her bracelet They exit the shop...Read On

Prettier Then Christmas

Love comes at the best time of the year filled with joy and cheer.

I don't know if it was Santa, who sent her love to me, in a red and silver bow, beneath my Christmas tree. Perhaps it was an angel, Mary, Jesus, or a saint, who colored my gray world, in gold and silver paint. Could it be a friend or loved one, who resides high in the sky, who knew what I was missing, when they heard me cry? In the end it doesn't matter, for love is all we need, and she's...Read On

You Should Be Here

Semper Fi

It's been thirteen years since you left this world. Some days the pain is so intense like that first day without you. I remember all the dreams we had for our future.  I remember your gentle touch and how intense our lovemaking was the night before your deployment.  I remember the last time I heard you say, "I love you"  I remember your mama's tears when we got the news  I remember...Read On

Pumpkin Pie

Don't let the title fool you.

Just like pumpkin pie, with a hint of spice. I always need a piece, a bite, a taste, a slice. A bite, a taste, a slice, sweeter than the song, that she played for me, all the evening long. All the evening long, we sang, we kissed, we danced, for there was nothing wrong, with our sweet romance. With our sweet romance, there's a wild fire of desire, and every time we meet, the flames...Read On
