When Bubbles Dissipate

Hearing the waters Translucent lavender flow Imagination Enriched blind, senses kick in Silence abounds, clothes in fall Naked to bare dip Porcelain to porcelain Glass of champagne chinks Lapping ripples in caress Submerged delights allure me Patiently I wait Her cue, for me to approach Encroach, I go through Eyes, eye, tanned undulations When said bubbles dissipate

Willow heart

A frog weeps at night
noisier than rustling leaves
The wavering heart
follows wherever the wind
blows as one frog weeps along

Relationship- In Love

Relationship- In love

Ecstasy or bane,
Passion creeps in lovers lane,
A deep prick in heart,
Betrayal makes you insane, 
Love makes the whole world go round!

Tanka- 5/7/5/7/7
Written September 22nd, 2014
For contest 'Poems or new magazine please' by Little known nothing

Magical Sun

Magical Sun

Shadows cast by Sun

Stretch out long in morning glow

From the grand giraffe

To the smallest lowly ant

Sun embraces, kisses all.

You are the Dead Sea

You are the Dead Sea
You just take and take and take
Never giving back
Concentrated...with your needs
Buoyancy made of your pride

The one who enters 
Cannot dive into your depths
Cannot open eyes 
To see what resides inside
To me, you are the Dead Sea

I flow with my love
I just give and give and give
I am parched and dry
Immersion is what I need
You will never be a stream

on the radio

on the radio; 
are songs,     my love, not words 
to bridge     this rift
you are     exorcising 
memories     of love, but why?

Our Fantasy

Thoughts read, fridge raided Opposite me with a wink She smiles with a twist Sultry spooning her wet lips Mint Ice Cream kisses adorn .

Jasmine Candles Glow

Showered, pores open Soft lighting awaits her lay Jasmine candles glow Tanned torso soon to glisten Naked I, massage employed .

Opposites Attract

He manipulates each word
He plays with the world
Controls tango's by his tongue
His swagger makes girls swoon.

This girl is timid
A book ready to be read
Self-conscious and soft
Hidden behind geek glasses
Eyes that watch the ground pass by

Invisible hand
Playing the cards dealt by fate
His wit and her smarts create
Magic when poured together
It's true, opposites attract.

Roses have different 
colors that entice and please;
a yellow rose stands out...
symbolizing the truest bond
of friendship one ever finds.

This yellow rose grew
in warm light and steady rain;
doesn't my joy also grow
being touched by friends who show
their kindness through profound love?

Music to my Ears

sweetness in your voice
all the lovely words you speak
music to my ears
         i feel all my sorrows fade
            warm sunlight encompasses

Tanka 3

the screech owl dives
from a swift, starless sky
strange sounds stir my calm
as hungry night creatures hunt -
a stranger in my bed
