In my moonlight dream
I can't believe I'm really here
we’re dancing in a forest
You light my life when you're near
Green earth is our floor
Our steps are magic in this place
and moon beams - our disco ball
Stars all aligned - for loves embrace
while soft music is the night
Romantic whispers feel so right

You are clad in white
Now look deeper to the heart
My golden gown sweeps the ground
I was mesmerized from the start
My beautiful knight - 
Princess shining in the day
Your bright eyes adore me as
I'm taken by all your ways
you twirl me among the trees
Dreamer's breath becomes love's breeze

*Andrea wrote the original "My Moonlight Dream" as a double tanka (from the gal's perspective and all the odd numbered lines in this poem).  I came along and harmonized it by adding alternating rhyming lines (from the guy's perspective and all the even numbered lines in this poem) for each of her lines.. Thus a new duet original, "All Your Ways". Hope you enjoy it!

A Perfect World

    in a perfect world

        no roses die on the vine

            spring is eternal

                natures gifts are abundant

                    in sunlit skies rainbows shine...

Spoke creation's existence
She is beautiful..
Woman sculpted from my side

Lavender Rose

A lavender rose
Placed on the bed beside her
Where he longs to be
He picked this rose just for her
True love without history

He feels so alone
The love just flows one way
Nature can be cruel
Without the gift of vision
She can't know love at first sight

Blistering summer
Bold emerald covered earth
Fresh crisp healthy air
Flowery scented fragrant
Extraordinary feelings

White Roses

I wish to be pure
Like these roses,my words sent
Innocent labels.
Let your whiteness be my bed
My reverence clean and cured.

Daffodils nodding Their faces shy and reserved Such tender beauty Soft butter moonlight tryst Our innocence lost

Her Yellow Rose

I had a great friend growing roses her passion one favorite bloom deep yellow, its fragrance sweet- growing by her sheltered seat a fragile woman joyful like her rose petals her last breath foreseen Near her headstone they planted her yellow rose "Enchanted"...

Autumn Watch - Tanka Contest

I listen and watch
the canada geese, fly in
vee shaped formation*
what a beautiful vision
as onto the lake they glide

Penned on November 2nd 2013.

*This is an annual occurrence, so wonderful to see them all fly in.  
Then every day they fly to different water spots and back in the evening to a near by reservoir.

The Finches

They're singing. They are.
The finches. They sing beauty.
That tree is their house.
How charming! Birds, music, tree.
And the sun, friendly, like them.
