December Magic

December Magic
Waltzing with the wind, in crocheted gowns of white lace… flurries of snowflakes sway to sweet divine music... that only angels can hear.

Sad Song -Tanka

"Marriage after Sunrise"

sunset drunken light
on lavender glass of wine
a long lost tear falls
converts into sleeping pills
dismiss the rain again

Yellow Roses

It seems such a waste Yellow roses on display In a crystal vase Not to be touched by warm skin Or rustled by waning wind
Wouldn't it be sweet Yellow roses in her hair Tickled by spring air Like an overdue reprise Petals scattered in the breeze

Belles on the Lake

Unruffled beauties
       float in boats rowed by their beaus
            one warm Georgia day.

        With fragile paper-white hands,
they fold their fans at twilight.

(For the Project UFO contest of Robert Heemstra

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

Picture Perfect


                          Cascading water

                                      dancing like ballerina

                                                down the green mountain
                                                              singing a sweet melody

                                                                              God-created lullaby

Lupine eyes shone coal
Untamed fleece ghastly disguise
A pure soul I've seen
Nimkee, enchanted by you-
Raw beauty birthed by nature.

Beauty and the Beast

Come on in welcome
I need to meet you oh yes
this my existence
in shadows of poetry soup
let my words be seen, not me.

The Moon and Back Love

Howling lamenting 
staring into her white gem
pearl ivory face 
Happiness one pure virtue 
dripping starlight tears over

A dream of great beauty

Garden's Beauty

Its charm, its bloom
A gift of spring breeze
Disappears fast
Something not oozing from heart
Something borrowed doesn’t last

A Moment In Paradise

                                          colors of sunset
                                   bathe our bodies as we kiss
                                         on tropical shores
                                     lover's paradise fleeting
                                my tears stain his wartime grave

A wondrous delight—
Spiritual movement pure!
Rapture is that joy . . .

Hidden From View

Beauty is boundless
The meaning goes unnoticed
Hidden and unseen
Waiting to be discovered
Open your eyes and your hearts

Thy Earth

Since the time you came
Many from us hypnotized
Amazed by your figure
Can't figure out your beauty
Everybody's praising you 

You are blessed by God
Nurturing us from danger
Providing our needs
Somewhere, everywhere we look
Your endless love never fails

How can we pay you?
If our owe is killing you
We become naive
Ruining your life and fate
Hence we earn our selfishness

By hypnotizing
We forget the one last word
'bout trees giving shade and air,
and the water extends life

Oh you, Thy Earth
Hears our summon to you
You made from vary
Please bring our message to HIM
Extend your life, change our desire...

Looking at heaven
The moon covered by thick cloud
Kiss my face, your light
Yes! Read my mind once again
"I do good things for you, Thy Earth!"
