As One Together

moon and stars above
warm summer night breeze blowing
arms wrapped around me
closeness makes my body weak
your breath, the warm breeze, I melt
our hearts together
beat now as one forever
till death do us part
A Mesh Of Forms Contest of Russell Sivey Written by Carol Brown 03/22/2012 Using the forms Tanka & Senryu 1st Place Winner

The Spirit Prevails

It is a new day
Something wonderful happened
You are now at peace
Like a phoenix rising up
From the ashes you prevail

We shall not mourn you
For you are not gone at all
We may not see you
Your presence lives on in us
Enduring the test of time

Radiant light shines
Upon us all forever
Glorious rays gleam
Emitting from your spirit
Keeping your memory strong

The lives you have touched
Will never forget you now
Though we may shed tears
These are tears of happiness 
Your spirit forever reigns

In the days to come
When we are all together
Celebrating life
Your spirit will consume us
Your peace will be our strength

Joy and happiness
Will be felt every moment
You gave us reason
To have faith in the future
Your legacy will live on…………..

Faith

Lay your sorrows down
Upon my healing altar,
Walk with me a while
And I’ll tell you of your worth,
So much more than you believe.

Wonder of Sunshine

Warms to the very bones
Brightens life in early morn
Making dew glister
Rainbow prisms of color
This the wonder of sunshine

Stargazer

The night is all mine.
Laying in lush, dew soaked grass
Hands for a pillow,
My earthbound home forgotten
As I hitch a ride with stars…

SWINGING ON A STAR



sky wrapped in rhinestones

   knitting hands through love’s compass

       as one velvet  star

           pointing beam on embossed eyes

…he moans soft in light,  my ” dawn!”
