Love Is...

Love breathes life into me, And makes me feel alive. Love is a friendship, a union. Hearts bound for an eternity. Love is waking each morn, To your kiss which brings me comfort. Love is wanting to know and hear, Everything about my day. Love nourishes my soul and warms my heart, As we waltz together through life. Love is knowing my faults, And never pulling away. Love is not saying a...Read On


A Love That Never Ends

Sometimes you have to look to the past for hope

Grandpa loved Grandma, He gave her his heart and got everything the world promised in return, Grandpa never wished for anything more, because he had everything he wanted anyway. I want to be loved like that, a love that never ends, A song that never goes unsung, And a dream that never ends. Something more than just illusion - something real that I can hold on to. Grandma met Grandpa and...Read On


Paths II


Dancing on her path, Dizzy from her winding pace, She crashed right into him, Falling in to his warm strength. He took her by the hand, They let their paths converge. The steady liked the rocky and the rocky liked the steady, That is how the separate paths were merged. They had to cross some rivers, And almost lost their way, Through the darkest nights, When tears fell like the rain. ...Read On


Everlasting Anymore

A short poem /w light imagery

What's everlasting anymore My heart's a weathered shield My arm without the strength to hold It's fallen in the field And so I dream of days of yore And long for simpler times But as the shining moon doth glow I'll find you on my mind And if I found the words to state Or yet eternity could sate A harrowed mind and swollen heart Broken yet to fall apart And it is this harrowing Keeping me...Read On


Fell From Grace song to share

Where albatross fly and some fools die, I had in mind a love song to share, (unfortunately lost words...)  But would you recall the names of my fall And shadows of it all, (sometimes I don't understand the gist of it all...) Would you if you could? I in shallow waters up to my last verse With fond memories of our rippling spawn, What am I to say after bitter almonds our way ...Read On


Same very Bed!

Dealing with bodies ignoring the soul.

We live together, so close to each other So deep the loving; in between Yet, how close we really can keep together? Walking alike, yet; the path is unknown. Think alike, yet; don’t think us as one. Being prisoned by walls, don’t make us shout out of hatred- Dealing with bodies ignoring the soul. Boundaries of bindings being torn into pieces; Yet a bed is the destiny at...Read On


Afternoon Delight

The moment that I saw it A grin lit up my face  It was as if Across the miles I felt your warm embrace How odd and lovely To receive Some mail that’s not a bill What joy it sparked At long day’s end To garner such a thrill! Encased in thick cream envelope With three stamps on its front Smiling at the taped-down flap I opened it at once So sweet to see you write my name! The words...Read On


without you

The earth stood still The lights went out And all that was left was darkness When you left you took it all And left me with nothing Nothing at all Nothing is all I have now To keep me company To keep me sane Darkness and nothingness Are my only friends When I close my eyes...Read On

Where you have always been [poem]

To Marcus

I know it’s wrong what’s in my head – the unsung song the said unsaid. When every night despair descends I have to write (though never send). It’s such a bleak, destructive grief to mine my weak, embraced belief: you’re everything that’s ever been; I’ve ever touched; I’ve ever seen. Some words of such obsessive stew can be too much (I strike them through). Yet all the spared, consumptive...Read On


Simply ... Us

When I cry, it is your, ... nature that gives me hope. When I laugh, it is your, ... smile that gives me joy. When I think, it is your, ... being that gives me thought. When I breath, it is your, ... essence that replaces air. When you drink, ... it is my spirit that quenches your thirst. When you see, ... it is my beauty that gives you sight. When you listen, ... it is my...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



Days are like thimbles when one sews, For the good rhymes of love When one quills with golden feathers, As a spool unwinds days of our past And your soft fingers bring back memories Caressing my mind,  Like a missing button on an old blouse The one that fastens over my heart, Threads of our love stitched These sixty years....Read On


Unbridled Love

How a Valentine's Day begins a new life.

Long empty nights as late in life we met, our paths had been lonely that long time ago it seems as today a new life has begun. ~~~ Today I begin to feel, I feel your caressing hand, Your kisses write on my skin a book of love, You gift unrestrained passion, You gift infinite rampant emotions, They sedate me as caresses to my very soul, They give me peace, Like a child praying on...Read On


Learning To Trust

This is hard to tell myself I need to trust in myself again To trust the people around me again To Trust the ones I loved For the ones to come after Until I can I will be alone... 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


On My Mind

Gentle arches Reddish brown Traced along The barest sound As my finger Strokes your brow Each touch lends strength To hope struck down Waxy finish Wiry feel You close your eyes As I set free The weariness That chafes your soul A heart so full It overflows Then bleeds its life Filled, drained, by turns With each fresh joy And each fresh hurt Tumbled mix Elation, doubt ...Read On



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


Footprints Of Caravans

Rowing gently on my oasis, Like an inkwell of my mind Leaving footprints of caravans, As my poetry turns to lust. With a branch of the palm As turbines time the wind, Your kiss fills my plate As my prose turns to sin. Rowing gently on my oasis, Leaving footprints of caravans Of oarsmen in the sand....Read On



Without a word you open to me and enfold And I can do no other than merge with you And we become one as we hold So tightly that yes we are one not two; And I reach, reach so deeply inside. Your limbs, your mouth, your being Engulf me as again and again I slide Into your depths. We are fleeing To that glorious paradise, that warm sea Where the being that we are ...Read On


The Promise

The old story of love and betrayal.

A promise from my lover is the glass upon the floor, broken by my lover and his dirty, fucking whore. A promise from my lover is the glass beneath my feet which cuts me and unfolds to me my lover’s black deceit. A promise from my lover is the blood that wakes the dead, and dyes the hems of my long skirt in shades of dirty red. A promise from my lover is the vine that curls between...Read On



Impressive. I am trying to be impressive. I want you to be impressed. Please, understand. I need you to think highly of me. I need it so much, because you are perfection. And I want to impress the perfect lady, The perfect lover, The perfect one for me. I want to impress. It is not certain yet. Not certain because we just met. We are tentative, groping, and searching. Trying to find...Read On



In due-course of my poetic ramblings  I wish to be a better scriber among poets,  calling on sensuality and endearing phrases and the twinkling of who your eyes are. Writing of many sings in words and rhymes  there is romance that keeps me entranced, like a libretto whispering silently in my ear  prosing the few I hold dear and in truth are. As moonlight in timpani of my...Read On


My Shenandoah

My emotions run deep when in my obscurity beyond the shadows of the wall,  calling of the ague my thoughts of sensuality. Like tumbling waters over stones And the wilding of my offerings,  feverish kisses I scribe, hungering for you. It wasn't but a touch ago in meadows of flowers I held you so  And caressing your skin, I got the ague. Now the rapids of life wash over me  and...Read On


Opposites attractively

mood changes everything that's meant to be or not to be

  Sex has a nasty way Of getting in the way Of getting close To the one you love. Love has a gentle way Of having sex In many ways To the one you love. Put these two together Sex and Love, I mean. Souls bound by tether In love, not obscene. What is beautiful is why No matter who or whom Blending and unending Are Circles of...Read On


Bed Of My Cries

Fractured memories make me cry, When the dew is on the yew And my tears have not dried. As your soul sets sail On a cold sea in November, Leaving me with fractured memories With no words to utter, but a prayer. But in dreams when I lay me down On bed of my cries, I count the memories In the vase of your ashes....Read On



I wish... I wish...

In the still of the night, As I lay down on my bed. Feels the blows of the wind, Hears the tick of the clock. Sleep took over, As I close my eyes. Feels your touch in my skin, Hears your voice in my ear. Is this Neverland? My mind wonders As I dream. Where I can be with you, Where all things possible. Rune03.25.15...Read On


Calliope Tree

Like a carousel turning counter clockwise on an axis of fond memories,  the effervescence of you  beneath wind chimes that sing and calliope tree. In silence your kisses blow enchanting my sins, like sherry stirring my emotions  of soft breath from a decanter and scent of yesterday's wine. Now in caress of carousel rhymes  and sing-a-long times of sugaring kisses, we slide upon...Read On


Angel Of Innocence

You're a study in contradiction, Strong yet battling deep affliction, Hippolyte meets Euridice. You can bring the sun with a single glance, A knight would lower down his lance Your token, he would make all the world see So why are you so sad inside? What demons are trying to hide? How can I just help them go away? I'm here and I will never go. Let them just fade and know, ...Read On


Noggin's Gruel

In the yawning predawn as I toss, Upon the coming of new day caw. As the frost lay on the hearth, A new awakening in my eyes, Stirring embers of desires. Gone to crush my scrawling writ, Bashing with comeuppance, My naughty not nice. Tasting breath of last eve's rum, As your bosom kindled my will, And a tongue unfurled on my cock.  By the time, dark clouds of sins, Have passed...Read On


Little words

Words can be brief, but their echo goes on forever...

Some words carry within them So much meaning, such depth, Modest, little letters put together, Becoming almost sacred in their meaning. A single word can hold magic, Make me tingle with delight, Feel proud and at peace, Make my heart beat out of my chest. Home.. Want.. Mine.. Love.. Small words that mean everything When spoken by a special someone, He that holds my heart, ...Read On


Perfectly Sweet

As I sit in my old chair, your gaze has me transfixed. My heart lays enchained in front of me. Body unable to do the simplest task. Yearning and pleading to you, the kiss. So sweet, so irresistible, flawless. I know it is dangerous, I know it will cost me everything. Like the series of old, she compels me and denies me. Those lips calling to me, kissing a hurricane would be...Read On
