The First Flower I Chose

The First Flower I Chose

You were my rose, the first flower I chose
A beauty so fair, such shine in your hair
You I chose, the finest ever love rose
Asked on a dare, the prettiest girl there

Soon we wed, pretty flower graced my bed
Nights sent such bliss, heaven I did not miss
Flames in bed, want no other instead
Honey that kiss, love never was like this

Years together, in good and bad weather
Loving every night, touching sweet just right
Joy our weather, sweet kisses a feather
Sexy the sight, your naked body at night

My rose did cast, true love that did so last
I held so fast, to that ship's greatest mast

Sentenced to mortal life term my May bride
  When joined are glad hearts on eternal date:
The sky did not fall nor planets collide
  On the altar of our noble estate.
Bright shone were rings of emeralds and gold -
  You my true love betrothed and I your swain!
Now Isis, you are mine to kiss and hold
  And never again your sweet lips abstain.
No artful other, no fool's inaction,
  Will keep me apart or these vows undo,
And without further lapse or infraction
  I rededicate my life unto you.
Keep me sworn and healed in your saving balms,
And in the fulcrum of your loving arms.


Isis: Goddess of fertility and motherhood!

For Les.

Precious Matrimonial Crystals

Words lovely flow in a pellucid stream
Holding both her hands, their eyes meet with gleam
Oath is so clear to love her forever
Star glides down her heart, is she a dreamer?

He gives her roses with whitest petals
Witnesses muster transparent portals
Blessings they bestow...he takes their full trust
With all their wishes that his love will last.

She’s a crystal  who’ll be handled with care
Crystals mustn’t fall from eyes in despair
They’ve heard all his sincere words so clearly
They hand her over to him willingly.

When words are crystals they remain in heart,
Kept far behind her eyes when she isn’t hurt.

Virgin's Lament

Find I you, not musing in bliss of love.
In  reverie crushed of silent lament,
Pray, let me hear the rant you gave thereof,
of love’s self destructing  ensuing bent,
within the hall of whores, how the young doves
who were slain in the prime of their youth spent
purity and goodness without repent.
Your chastity is questioning its trove?

Perhaps you alone should decide the deed.
The time and place, flavor of the choosing.
We can put off the wedding if needs be.
But a mutual loss schemed in musing,

which fulfills a vow that you both shall feed
Shall last longer than the actual deed.

Baby, you remind me of a bunny, 
sweet loyal and trustworthy
you always make life funny
when we're not together, i miss you badly,

you notice things no other man bothers to notice,
when i look into your blue eyes i see the true me,
my exes made me feel worthless
that's why i believe in our family,

when we speak i feel the love 
when you smile at me i could swim in your dimples
our hands fit together as snug as gloves
and one hug from you makes life seem simple

I'm so happy you are my boyfriend
i never want this relationship to end.

2 Peas in a Pod

I thank God every morning we have met
for the fun we have doesn't have a price
and the love we have we'll never forget
we both love sweet and sour chicken with rice

It is true we are two peas in a pod
and we both know that life is never fair
and we don’t share the same belief of God
Having you in my life brought it some flair

I’m almost a decade older than you
I know now age does make a difference
I know my love for you is always true
Maybe someday we’ll have that picket fence

This is much more than a marriage my wife
This is the greatest adventure of life

12 days of christmas: wedding vows

Love share thoughts in this particle of time
"I adore your dress" "you are my groom on fire"
On the 29 of December we'll share: "you will be mine"
So we won't die of loneliness, depicted of desire!
And for love and sickness we'll walk through
Smiling and Sharing our dance at last
With no more moments of blues !
Its time, let's toast "to love" , "to all the guests!"
And here we are, embraced by beautiful flowers planted on the ground
This feels like Eden, sharing our ballroom song;
We are the one,  just look around..
All tables made of marbles topped with laces that are strong!
                   Our vision, family members smiling, and yelling a ton...
                   "Caviar is served let's cheer the happiest Couple who has won!"

                      Beautiful Lies

        Gazing on your beloved face sublime,
        Love’s mist reflection blazes in your eyes--
        Because I know I have so little time,
        I whisper kisses with the same old lies.
        Each time I vow that I will never leave.
        Tho caught again bereft that I must go.
        The simple truth too cruel to believe
        And hiding truth retains our lovers’ glow.
        Reality is killer to love’s plans,
        No matter how both lovers promised true.
        No man's vision has passion more consumed
        Than my yearning eyes nourished sight of you.
               You slept---and I slipped silent through the door--
               Donned uniform and headed back to war.

A Cause to Rejoice

Why does hatred bloom where two lovers stand
vowing only to cherish each other forever?
When it is love and hope that brought them together,
why do hoards of people want their union banned?
Just because it is a love they cannot understand?
Does it somehow make their lives a little bit better
keeping different drummers from marrying ever?
And here I thought we lived in a free land.
Why must we put restrictions on how people love?
Why does homosexuality scare people so?
Consenting adults should be allowed their own choice.
I’ll leave moral judgment to the heavens above,
but this is one thing that I certainly now know -
a union of any two lovers is a cause to rejoice.

He Said Yes

The dating world has been turned upside down
What we thought of as taboo is now alright
Women don't wait for men to come around
Not a crime it's their undivided right

With Valentines day having come and gone
Imagine how many of them proposed
How many of these were frowned upon
It's a wonder how genders have transposed

Now I am not complaining, not a bit
It's easier for a man to exist
I am liking this change I do admit
No longer will my passes be dismissed

Please don't ask me to be your better half
It might be cute but it will make me laugh

Treasures Of Your Soul

Silver expressions joyous loving times
Those precious moments over years divine
Snatching golden seconds when in our prime
Oh! Dashing youth "twas fate our lives

Silver expressions nestled and embrace
Memories of past sharings no mistakes
Our home, Camelot, welcomes and embrace
Youth has departed but eddy place aches

Love embowers our kindred hearts quiver
Wrapped in your ageless embrace agleam
Laughter bounces 'pon expressions silver
Noble dashing cloaked in charm kindness streams

Those silver expressions, love most divine
Once youth's folly now totally resign

Forget me, you, where upon your name shall shine,

Forget me, you; where upon your name shall shine,
Where, therein your heart shall not ever repent,
For by then, I will be gone without a sign
And our love with its flowers shall far be sent,
And thus my part, a lover, done and proven,
For this ain't my love that don't care your future,
But the truth that I will burn in an oven,
Tolerating my broken heart in suture,
Escorting pain along with me to the sea,
To the depths where your eyes and heart shall not reach,
If once you see my son, call him for a tea,
For I shall sing him our love and its songs each,
For now this is all I say when you marry,
That my distance is my love that I carry.

It's a ripe hour under shield
And tranquil carefree splendid of the day
Quoting the splendour combination of beauty
It's the time on the lovers on board.
A butterfly pretty and pigeon beauty
Both are true and are mine
When duos redeemed, I was there
A babel of noise to must bubble
Won't I be backbitten as a backbencher?
I am an ally of the lovebirds
Background temptation must let go here
I am a friend and a best man to be
So, so and so thought should excuse my tract
And let me remain a matchmaker under zephyr.

The Perfect Wedding

The perfect wedding would be with the one who you love,
Where you both fit together like a hand in a glove.
Your wedding dress is as white as snow,
Looking at yourself in the mirror preparing for your Romeo .
You feel like you're a Queen,
You've dreamed of this day since you were a teen.
You're hair in curls flowing down your face,
Hoping a strand doesn't move out of place.
Your makeup looking flawless,
Your lucky because you're so blessed.
There are red roses sitting everywhere,
It's so breathe taking you can't help but stare.
Rose pedals sprinkled down the aisle,
Glad this day is here because it's been a long while,
As you walk toward your man you smile,
Holding back the tears that are starting to compile.
You get a rush of emotions that almost overflow,
You're so happy that your face has this glow.
When you finally arrive to your Groom you place your hands in his,
You're so excited because you've been waiting for this.
You wrote your own vows and so did he,
Because you want to express how it's meant to be,
As you hear his vows a tear rolls down your cheek,
When you've read yours, he can almost not speak,
This just shows how your love runs that deep.
As he places the ring on your finger for the symbol of love,
You know this is a blessing from God up above.
You place the ring on his finger and the deal is done,
Now the life of two becoming one has begun.
Sealing it with a kiss that your love will last eternally,
Husband and wife for all eternity.

''My sweetheart dwells on the coasts of Brazil--''

My sweetheart dwells on the coasts of Brazil,--
in clear, sweet notes her lips speak Portuguese;
her beauty makes the earth and sun stand still--
what a tragedy if she were a tease!
Beholding her fair face is what I miss;
surrounding her in a loving embrace
and kneeling down to give her a soft kiss:--
all these would make my quickening heart race!
The distance between us, like a thick mist,
keeps us apart;--but I by heaven swear
that someday we'll have our clandestine tryst,
place after place in the same hemisphere. 
     And if she's not 'gainst tarrying for me,
     I'd give all to marry her by the sea.

Excitement is in Georgia standing on a ledge.
His expression is that he loves her.
But she loves someone else.
Yet everything about her says she thinking of me.
Tell me please, why is she not part of my destiny.
If faith is the witness, I will conquer her love.
She will not think of him anymore.
I called to her to come to me early on.
She answered by coming straight from home.
I was waiting on the balcony when I heard her knock.
I ran to the door and pull on the knob.
The door open hastily and we hugged.
We stood in the foyer for a moment or two.
Walking not saying a word, we enter the bedroom.
If faith is the witness, I will conquer her love.
She will not think of him anymore.

Laughing Devil saddens me on happy a occasion

Was having gala time with friends in Niece's marriage function 
Spirited friends thought of having bhang* for fun of rarity 
Greedy of mild floater effect, scary of hangover, finally gave in for fun 
Toast raised with glass of 'bhang', few more and began party  
Intoxicated, Laughing Monster seized me, laughed with insanity 
Friends tried all to normalise laughing tantrum 
But monstrous laugh only gained momentum 

Panic mounted, as I was summoned by Panditji*for marriage ritual  
As a maternal unclr, had to perform customary ritual with bride-groom  
Stuck with intoxicated laugh, but serious was ritual, embarrassed one and all   
Gained normalcy post ceremony, cursed self, all fired, pity having no room  
Pledged never to indulge in bhang, took a life-time vow soon 
Marriage album without my ritual snap, still condemns me  
Memory of laughing devil, on happy a occasion still saddens me  

PS (*) :
a) Bhang - Indian hemp, a milk concoction, having potential of queer intoxication 
& narcotic effect. Intoxication high results in mad indulgence of repetitive action 
for many hours. The action, one is engaged in at the beginning time of knock-out 
state perpetuates for many hours e.g if one was laughing... he will continue to 
laugh for many hours....   

b) Panditji – Priest performing marriage ritual

Sonnet 021413

My past life was like a cold lump of clay
Forced to caricature, no more no less
Numbed and swinish, departed and grey
With a fractured heart, slack and lifeless

Though I wandered harshly; looking but locked
And twice pulled sparing arrows from my chest
A true golden beauty leaned in and knocked
Some sense into my head; my God I’m blessed

I look at my life here and now with you
And I find life in bloom all around me
A garden of growth filed with soft and new
Fruits and flowers beside the Sacred Tree

The pieces of my heart, your touch restores
And the key to my love, forever yours

Written By: D. Collins 10/28/14
There are a lot of people who’ve been married for years.
Then, suddenly find themselves in a world of fears.
The world has evolved while they were at home.
It’s a different story when that marriage is gone.
They soon feel free, and start hitting the streets.
Naïve to predators that are in it for “me”.
They refer to “dating” as if they are nineteen.
But, the world has evolved to being ruthless and mean.
Everyone is hungry, and everyone is a “mark”.
Evolution stepped in to get at all o’ ya'll.
After marriage know the world isn't the same.
Know that people you date are trying to upgrade.
Think “mark” before romance and you’ll have it solved.
Absorb this crash course on how the world evolved.

for Roger and Tessa 

I feel his presence as if he stood before me
My thoughts are tea-leaves only he can read
A brain scan shows I want him to adore me
While my heart shows for him my wanton need.

I trawl through the day, he could never bore me
I think of him even when I bleed
Heart of my heart, friend to never score me
Necklace of desire, bead after bead -

He knows my ways, how to love and shore me;
His speech shows me where and how to lead;
He never hurts, his will would never core me,
Or leave me hungry where I want to feed:

At times we see ourselves, strange and rude -
Clasp each other, beautiful and nude.

Suitors Calling, Charles Wood

In times of old when manners mattered
Suitors came to court young daughters

'Twas up to he the head, the father
To chose a husband for his daughter

At times the father's chose for wealth
Strength in character,tall and stealth

Did not matter if she be smitten
He'd take her hand, as it was written

The mother of the daughter tried
To steer and guide the father's mind

In the end he chose what was best
She'd learn to love him like the rest.

My Gal, Blue Bonnet, Black Hair

My Gal, Blue Bonnet, Black Hair

My gal, jet black hair and a blue bonnet
writing her a golden little sonnet
Just a few nice words to sweetly say this
to the lady that gave truest ever kiss

Give kisses, many more, forever more
I long for and do happily keep score
Hold me so tightly in the deepest night
You glowing radiance , the sunshine's light

Morning brings the pleasure of you there
lights are bouncing upon your smile and hair
Day gifts your soft touch to lift me up
time spent filling our sweetest loving cup

My gal, blue bonnet and long jet black hair
you are my ALL, knowing you truly care!

Blossoms and Bubbles

Blossoms and Bubbles

Blown bubbles shower them by every friend,
Aglow with rainbow colors, they now glide
And dance along this special day, attend
To hold each loving good wish prayer inside.

Held tight are lovely blossoms that commend
This unity of love so blessed by God,
The purity of bonding seen in blend
Of soft white petals and pink buds that nod

In hopes that this one day will never end,
That it be held as treasure all life through,
As blossoms filled with love, and bubbles send
Their blessings on this day they said “I do.”

The happy bride and groom leave church to share
Blossoms of love and bubbles filled with prayer.

Cupid's Darts

Cupid's Darts

Youthful charms, perfect manners on display,
I met my only son's first girlfriend today.
All of the emotions at young loves doorway
Sparkled in their eyes, an innocent array.

Cupid carefully aimed a downpour of darts.
Sugary dreams fell upon two sweethearts.
Sparkles of love-beams crystallized in quartz
Trusting forever held its grip on young hearts.

I, burdened by fears and memories shipwrecked.
Pray, dear Lord, please let good virtue protect.
Wishing their courtship reciprocal respect.
Two seeking soul mates for marriage select.

Cherished with honor, future lifetime love
Attains eternal marriage in God's courts above.
