Life's Hallway of Doors

Us....again

I watch my hand grasp at the knob of a familiar door In the moment … how I arrived here is unclear I had only turned to look back, to see if I could catch a glimpse, just heartbeats before Sure I had been moving forward, confused that my outreached hand lands here In the moment …how I arrived here is unclear Everything feels like it always did, as if that door was never closed to me Sure...Read On

Complete

Reaching for him with quivering hands, A silent plea to be held, Needing to be engulfed in his warmth, Feel his naked skin against hers, Her body exhausted and spent From hours of intense love-making, His demanding passion Drawing endless pleasure From her willing, burning flesh. He penetrates her, Not just her body, But her heart, her mind, her soul, Leaving nowhere for her to...Read On

Forever and a Day

Sparkling sun rays Beam across the sky On this glorious day. The trumpets blare A symphony of sound As they lift their voices Soulful hymns of devotion. Dressed in white Simply angelic with Overwhelming beauty Both inside and out. Such a heavenly sight, One that takes Your breath away. Her eyes tell a story Of a passion so deep Explosive like dynamite. Each spoken word Encapsulating love....Read On

Until

A never-ending love, eternal's gift from you, Like a thread on a spool forever we are twining As the silver lining of our wed quilts our spread, And when the thimble runs over with kisses The buttons that we sewed told our true,  I will be there to share a string to tide me over  Until my life unwinds and the bobbin goes quiet, Burying me with your needle....Read On

Those Two Words

Those two words, how often have I heard them and felt relief? How often have we all heard them and been brought hope? The pain each time I hear those words, they sear my heart with grief. Thoughts of beginnings and ends, my soul I twist into a killing rope. I swim out beyond the shore and waves, now beyond your reach. Salt water fills my ears, the sound of your words I try to drown. I look...Read On

They Said to Me

Heinlein was wrong. Music is a harsh mistress; not the moon

She said to me, “I am leaving you, so you can play music without guilt.” I looked at her, and then I went to play a concert. They said to me, “We are taking away your job; you can’t afford to play music.” I looked at them, and then I went to rehearsal. They said to me,”You haven’t any heat in your house; you can’t afford to play music.” I looked at them, and then I put on a sweater and...Read On

Our time

Time spent together, shared in the most intimate way. Words themselves fail to capture their full meaning. In an ideal world we are all that we can be here for each other. Miles apart, closer in my heart than I had expected. It crept up on me so subtly, and pierced my inner self. Shattering all, it was a drastic realisation. The idea of love came to me and I felt each sharpened...Read On

Across A Shimmer

Your face is just a shimmer across the water,  a rippling mirror that always tries to find  wherever my reflection chooses to hide,  in the gaps a lens could never quite capture. Where nothing but a cavernous quiet reverberates through the heart's chambers after the final  footsteps across a breaking bridge. I'll never hear the weight of what we were collapsing,  cracking roads and...Read On

Hummingbird

The beauty of the hummingbird is in its power, That awes most every mind that it can reach, The wings that race much faster than my heart can beat, The sugar-water feeds its power and strength. The hummingbird caught rarely by a much skilled hand, The gentle aura calms the small one's mind, The heart of man receptive to the hummingbird, And sees that the small bird must fly away. ...Read On

I Remember

I remember falling asleep curled around your arm as you drove  Telling myself it was wrong because you weren't mine I was with another yet it felt so wonderful with you I remember waking up your hand on my leg fingers lightly stroking The gentle touch of your lips atop my head made me smile Pretending to be sleeping so it wouldn't end I remember the clarity and peace that...Read On

Four Elements

Feet splashing in streams, Tripping along with bare feet. Sharing the pleasure. Soaking wet clothing, Drenched with the water of life. Skipping in the rain. Moisture in the soil, Saturating nourishment. Smiles at the blooming. ~~~~~ Clouds across the sky, Blown by winds unseen by eyes. Storms appearing soon. Breathing in the air, Our atmosphere is heady. Sweet exhalations. Lovers...Read On

Shall We?

Draw me near and cheer me Grace me with your smile Let a veil encircle ‘round Concealing us, a while Let me lean against you Strong and warm and there Radiating sureness Shielded from life’s glare And as your chest enfolds me Comfort’s warmth does rise Catching at the core of me Lighting in your eyes A shifting of emotion Glints through this tender calm Convergently occurring As...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

Simple Warmth

The chill is setting in  I feel the loss again my life is good I know but I still miss her so It was no goal of mine never meant by design my heart is deep in pain because it's been in vain No more of the laughter that always came after  our sessions of frolic my heart's melancholic How did it end this way what did I ever say nothing seems to matter worlds are going to shatter The winter...Read On

Peace

I have found my peace within...

There you were, different than most. Both you and I in a chaotic place. Faded was my mind, my peace; yours as disturbed as well. Yet we found each other in a sea of emptiness. Words, time, patience. Acceptance, dedication and trust. I know it was real. I know it is real. The peace I found was beyond, beyond what I thought possible. Yes, there have been times in my life where I...Read On

Thoughts

She needs to be held, Feel protected and safe, Like she matters, Is treasured by him. She wants to be seen, To be heard, understood, Her feelings respected, Not made to feel guilty for them. She longs for his desire, To share passionate kisses, Tremble for him As he enjoys her body. She tries to please him, Make him happy, even proud, But she can only be herself, Anything...Read On

Ocean's Roar

Gazing at the shore Above the ocean's roar I look upon the moon And long for her once more Waves go rushing in I see her face again And wonder if she'd change My loss into a win It's doubtful now I know Still I did love her so But feelings fade to gray When loving cannot grow Saltwater mists I feel Near shores that still seem real Without her smile so bright My ship has shown its keel ...Read On

Sunrise Delight

Morning afterglow soothes me Rousing from my doze Shower running Steam escaping under the bathroom door Thoughts of our early morning hours A walk up the windy beach Getting our feet wet in the surf Kissing. Laughing. Holding. Seeing the beach house in the distance Racing playfully Giggling more than running I let you win and we embrace on the front porch Not wanting the hug to ever end...Read On

I See Her

Inspired by today's trip

Loading up my camper Looking at my bed I see her Moving down the highway My mind now flowing free I see her Canyons attract my gaze Chaos combined with beauty I see her Mountains loom around me Mysteries hidden in them I see her Dark Clouds on the horizon Depth beyond my vision I see her Raindrops upon my windshield Reminding me her wetness I see her Wind blows...Read On

A Sailor's Siren

The sea calms my barren soul not a single light shines at this silent hour waiting for my sailor upon the rocky shore the same waves which took to him my plea a message in a bottle, in it my heart and love Daily I await for his return at the old pier for the man who brought back my light Our last kiss with a fearful sigh I gave waving a handkerchief to the wind When the sailor for...Read On

Beauty

Inspired by two of my great passions

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder I beg to disagree Beauty comes from within It is there for all to see The things that I find beautiful are so very rare They seem so real to me What draws me so to them? They exist so naturally Beauty can be found in people and the natural world Soleil, mountains, rivers They bring my heart such peace And I know my heart is hers What is...Read On

Yonder

While crossing bridges As the prose goes Yonder as the Rubicon flows Never looking back But poetically sounder A passing dalliance shows Keeping my eyes straight ahead When the fire burns in my chest With pebbles of kisses For a love not to be Without floundering While crossing bridges Yonder as the Rubicon flows...Read On

Yesterday's Smile

Like the steps to the rising dawn I'll be with you in song Bear with me my earthly wile As I reset the memories Of my mind's kaleidoscope With a fragrance of a dearin' smile And would thee seek a morrow's kiss If I sought your verse bliss On the other side of yesterday's sun As I reset the memories With flowers upon your pillow When the sun shines, my sweet fawn...Read On

Winter Tanka

the storm within

Winter Tanka Your breath never changed When I touched your feet with mine Laying in our tent You underneath your blanket Like the moon behind her veil And I, more restless than the wind ...Read On

A Lovely Thing

It wasn't but a lovely thing on porch swing some time ago, when I first held your hand when we were teens and the fireflies wink. Then we went steady and you wore my class ring,  many springs ago at the prom  listening to Johnny Cash. It wasn't but a lovely thing, then you took my name and with champagne we danced, on porch we kissed. And then in winter's snow  you left me...Read On

Love's last quatrain

Occasionally, even little pigs may recognise pearls amid their sty

I built a poem from Lego bricks Perfection! Not a hole to fix Each room I filled with emptiness Each plastic rhyme with hopelessness * Hey, lover! (who builds poems from sticks) I built a poem from Lego bricks He read, his face - a doleful mask - Proclaimed I had not met the task * 'To beat the wolves, my lover dear Do more than to the rules adhere I built a poem from...Read On

They tell me it takes a lot of Courage Faith and Love I believe I have Faith and the Courage Love will come later If and when it does I will be ready ...Read On

Stormy seas

Through a stormy ocean of feelings, Lost, aimlessly floating, Wind tearing at the sails, Ripping and shredding, Waves crashing against the hull, At the rudder, Clinging to hold on, Waiting for the storm to pass, Get through it, Find calmer waters. There is no set course, No known destination. Nothing but foreign waters lay ahead. Yet a hope remains Of one day reaching the shores....Read On

You are my muse.

You are my muse The tears to mine eye; The only path to fortitude The wind upon the sky. For the firmament is so pleased With all you do to me; That her azure tears Fill each obliged sea. So to the man who gives me all That a soul could give; To you I owe my very voice Without which, I can’t live....Read On

A Bond Broken

You, my Master, who with strong arms and firm hands bind me with leather Repairing the broken lives we endure when not together Revelling in the bond we shared from the start of our first date Ignoring the truth that happily ever after could never be our fate I, your Sub, suckling and nibbling for your pleasure Loving every moment as I whisper in your ear, my breath tickling like...Read On
