She walked in to my life at the perfect time
Understanding all I had to say
Saying all the right things
Everyday with her a joy
Tonight I'll treat her like a queen
Walking hand in hand
Along the white sand beach
Locking arms and lips
Kissing soft and sweet
Oh the perfect day, as the sun begins to drop
Never doubted, my love for her won't stop
The two of us together
Heating up the night
Enjoying every wondrous sight
Ending our day
Arms wrapped around her tight
Come take me away
Heaven on earth, good night
Romantic Acrostic Contest
Wind and frost have come to bite our noses while
Images of glistening snow sparkle in the moonlight.
Nights in this valley have brought us a taste of heaven,
Tranquil scenes we see while taking our evening stroll.
Everyone in their houses getting ready for evening in silence,
Reaching home we cuddle drinking cocoa by the fireplace enjoying winter.
Judy Konos: The Lazy Contest
These were set in motion from the beginning of time.
Heavens abound in each of their glory, power sublime.
Every excursion that they set upon revolves in rhyme.
Solar orb that secures life upon this planet we dwell.
Universally seen around our globe, for all to tell,
Never tiring it revolves, captured within its cell.
Rising up from its core, flares of powerful streams.
I respect what has risen from the sunny beams.
Sharing the glory that it has upon everyone, it seems.
Evident by the life that it supports even in dreams,
Solar star of daylight hours continue as nature deems.
Till nightfall approaches while another completes the set.
Helping to guide travelers for centuries the positions to get,
Evening ignites different phases upon this satellites debt.
Monthly revolutions of this celestial body sway the hours.
Orbital bliss has spoken richly along with romantic flowers.
Opening souls in sensuality and fulfilling romantic powers.
New moon to which many have fell into its magical showers.
Splendor of the night as it falls to set upon the new dawns light.
Exemplary versions follow a pattern, which marvels natural sight.
Take notice of what you may be missing each upcoming night.
Said, I’ve heard, old sailors delight, shining, enchantingly bright.
L ove is everything to me
O nly people don’t seem to see
V oices from the inner regions
E arnestly telling us to simply care
I nside messages we cannot recognize
S tymied by years of ignorance and greed
A mazing dreams if we could but see
L inked into love through past lives unknown
L et the light shine through to a mind at peace
So much obscurity with no sign of light.
Hope begs the question is there help in sight?
Past, present, and future are mangled in time.
Enters the Captain - buckle-up for flight.
Across the universe, passage bought for a dime.
A countdown begins; it’s the end of the line…
Cashing-in what is left of my mind,
Ready to reschedule this mission of mine.
Envy my trip but heed the sign:
The SPACE around his HEART is dark and sublime.

It's you tha I see every now and then
Not even aware of your existence
That somehow I will fall for you
How come I didn't know that it was you
Even before I fall in love with you
Many chances had passed between us
Over and over again like a deja vu
Oh my, am I so silly for not knowing it at once
Don't know better than my heart does
For since then, I never felt like this before
Only you can make me feel brand new
Roaring like lion my heart boom!
Loving you makes me in the mood for love again
Oh, how long I've waited it
Verily I say, thanks for this day
Even though, it takes time for me and you
Awaiting it for a long time, I feel no regret
GOD gives us time to be together
Alas! I waste it no more
I hold and cherish it forever
Now that the chance is ours....
She's like the essence of variety.
Her ability to inspire me
taste like passion when she says "Hi" to me.
She'll never lie to me.
Cause she's truth.
She's love like a harsh lesson
and more precious than a subtle blessing.
Constantly testing my sanity like a harsh whisper...
And unlike fear... her sister
I kissed her and never knew lonliness
was not an option
after adoption of her promise
She's my companion and like my heart
we were made to be together
She is forever and to sever us... is death.
Like breath without her there's no me left.
Life... my wife... my existence
I'm so deeply in love with you
Pain... I insist this
By: Soul's Floetry
If you want me to care
You will have to share.
Need someone to love.
A heart for your glove,
Friend with some flare,
I’m the one, which is true.
Sailing across the ocean blue,
Right before your eyes,
Behind your path, below the skies,
Like a forever friend you know.
A guardian with special glow,
Bridge not me before my start.
Over previously broken heart,
Troubled days and nights are gone.
Water washes your heart at dawn.
I want you to believe my words.
Will you listen to singing birds?
Ease all the ills of your soul.
Your heart is my only goal.
Mind not, my passion will console.
B lindfolded he leads her down the hall,
A nticipation makes her start to giggle.
T here he lets her dress slide slipping to the floor,
H anding her a red rose he removes the blindfold.
F ascination shows in her excited face,
O ver the floor is a carpet of rose petals,
R ed candles have turned the washroom into a spa.
T he scent of perfumed water fills their senses,
W ater spills as he draws her into the tub.
O ne heart and one soul become one.

Serenity filled the whole existence.
Arising and rising above all the distance.
Revived by your shade.
Affinity within all what you've said.
Happiness redefined, you're one of a kind.
W omen are priceless treasures only mined with the loveliest tool of a caring heart
O ptimism is defined in their ingenuity with a worth irreplaceable as life
M en becomes helpless babes without cleaving to them in their lonely life journeys
E arth becomes lifeless without their wombs bearing fruit
N eed is no necessity without their hands’ industry of excellence
A ngels they are but without wings
R evolutionary to the core but lenient in their touch
E motions best dictionary the world has ever discovered
P ain is told and subdued by them even in the pangs of childbirth
R est is ensured by them even in times of terror
I deas are not only dreams to these treasures as they turn houses into homes
C hildren are sheltered in them for nine months without paying any rent or utilities
E nthusiastic of a kite flying against the tide is their vision for distinction
L oyalty is their hallmark as their fragility is ruined with their lovers’ betrayal
E ndless is their love when respected and refined with tender loving care
S easoned in their preserved taste, a blend of sugar and salt
S ervice is their trounce against society’s challenges

R iches are discovered only by the wise
E xperienced in the times and seasons of life
A spiring to the horizon with hopes that can touch the seat of God
S ensitive to perceive a needle fall or ticking clock
U nderstandable to the desires of crying of babies or the kisses of fathers
R eachable notwithstanding distance or difficulty
E ducators in their natural state, turning crawling babies into running heroes
S pecial in their makeup, priceless as treasures
Reaching up to whisper in your ear
Owning up with words that you are dear
Mesmerizing you with lover's grace
Artfully exploring your sweet face
Nearly fainting there in your strong arms
Clearly feeling all your manly charms
Idolizing you in moonlit glow
Naming all the dreams that you must know
Getting nearer now for tasty kiss
Yearning now to be immersed in bliss
Opening my heart and soul to you
Uttering devotion, Love, for YOU!
Till morning brushes cheek with night and yonder still I shan’t abandon you my love
Regardless of the rising sun or falling of thy moon, in- fast I clip a star upon thy path
Unveiled by faring light, I come to sweet anoint your tender tongue with salve soothe
Endearing to my heart and soul, this freedom love that takes mine breath away withal
Love’s fragrance mild like camomile pip daisies in every tender shade
Overtures of passion rise like orchestrated music to apprise
VERILY I SAY TO THEE,
Every step a little closer to my ecstasy, when I’m with you xxx
Lasting looks and longer kisses than disparaged time and place
All the spaces we have barged engraved and softly put
To understand thy heart, I must consult mine well fed soul
So intrinsically we bind, thus is the nature of our LOVE
FOREVER WE SHALT NEVER PART, NO NEVER AN ADIEU!
Ordinance of power, where none is stronger than the half
Regardless of the rising sun or falling of thy moon, in-fast I clip a star upon thy path
Every step a little closer to eternity, when I’m with you xxx
Verily I spake unto thee, thou art the mental floss of my addiction
Every street brings me back to you
REGARDLESS OF THE SUN OR MOON, THOU ART A LAMP UPON MY FEET
It seems to me,
Since you lay right here.
I thought we’d be,
Till you disappeared.
A lighthouse sunk to the sea,
In the dark of the night.
With no light to guide me to you,
Ill drift here,
Till I can set sail again,
or forever fall at the edge of your reef.
P assionately in love with you, you are the breath stokes
A lasting flame, ignites my senses. Your measured strokes
S teadily calm my screaming desires. Your massage
S oothes aching muscles...you follow with a barrage
I ntense of seductive touch. Stimulate with your every move.
O verpower me and I submit willingly with nothing to prove
N ow or ever...comfortable in our own skins our own looks.
A lways as one even lying apart reading separate books.
T his confidence we share...revel in the thought of you and me
E ternally swimming safe in the depths of our own private sea.

Inviting you here in my sweet arms oh my Love
Longing more for you I just look at the sky above
Over and over I stare at your handsome picture face
Visiting in my mind all those times places that I know
Endearing to me you are in everything and that's so
You are like a refreshing spring breeze very fresh falling rain
Over and over in my heart and soul your love is just divine
Until you come over all the time and every single day to me
More and more and this is the way it will always with me be
On you am here resting all my trusting true love and heart
Resting and touching with my hands your body to glow start
Eternity I'd want to spend all my life only with you
And everyday I just want to love you more and more
Nothing like this I've felt for anyone else in my heart before
Darling, you're the only one that my whole heart wants now
Meanwhile my very heart and soul are only yours and that's so
Oh yes, I just know that without a doubt that You are the one
Reach out for my heart and hand my Love and my whole life
Embrace me now in your strong arms, and never let me go cause You're the one!

(**I visited the Kuta beach in Bali, Indonesia in the early 90s.The expressions
poem is the powerful of feelings recollected in tranquility today in 2009
remembering the visit.)
Beach I remember of getting wind in my hair
Eyes were full of tears of joy and not grief
And to stand on the sand and simply to stare
Clothes dampening while playing “run away”
Hear the wavelets at play tickling our toes.
Be seated on the beach with feet in the sand
Listen to ocean’s song to clear the mind
And watching the crimson sunset at the same time
Not to bother for any cares, watching God’s bounties.
Kept roaming on the beach to find colored shells
Eavesdropping to hear the ocean’s deep roar
The tired mind to be refreshed smelling the salt.
Behold the beach! Here I have found peace
I have found love too, here, here and here
Nowhere but on grains of sand that blankets
Graciously and gorgeously offering a bed of comfort.
Oh, the freedom to run, fall, hold, cuddle and coil.

Contest: Impress Me II by Giorgio V.
Motif - Romantic/Nature
Leap of faith
Object of affection
Vision of beauty
Eclipse of the heart
Joy is the eye that longs for me and waits
Only me as the clock ticks and leaves spiral
A heart which bursts when she releases her ponytail
Never to be mine
Never to be mine
And I search for you while I'm at rest
Joining the line of the fallen
On the spot I wait to be chosen
And my heart , empty and dormant
Never to be warm
Never to be warm
And the glorious sun radiates off your laughter
Just one, till your eyes land on me again
One glance and pick me as a garment casually left
Asking God for one chance to be in your heart
Never a pulse without me
Never a pulse without me
And your hair touches my face
My dear friend Joanna real name in Italian
A quickened beat, A skip, a pace
Like thunder rolling through this place
Long since these feelings stirred aloft
I hearkened some, some still far off
So here I sit and contemplate
Of futures steps of unknown weight
Now at peace, I smile and wait.
Since the first time I lay my heart's eyes on you,
Oration of my love story began; we became the main characters
United together in warm, obsessing passion. Energy we create can
Light a city; ahhh.....yes, an energy created by pulsation of our heart-beats.
My mind always thinks about you; every
Atom that makes who you are is like a star in the night sky. As a hobby, sky-gazing
Transformed to gazing in your eyes, to get a glimpse of the stars of
Every character, beauty, and charm that defines you.

A tender smile, a fleeting glance
Missed beats of hearts and minds in trance
One feels a sense of something whole
Rest warm and soothing in the soul
Outshining aura’s brilliant glow
Upsurge of passions soon bestow
Strong flowing currents charged with fire
Now fanned and fed by love’s desire
Emboldened hearts combine to share
Surrender fears…lay each soul bare
Soon bond as one, their love declared.
