LOVE God is always love Forever seek the kingdom; Praise the creator Keep giving what you can give Please endure until the end ANGELS Beautiful Heavens Protecting the meek ones earth Watching over us Helping us to cope with life Comforted with hope and trust MUSIC When you find rhythm You find your hearts inner core Celebrate the times Make them better than before Reminisce and dance all night

Sun Dancing

Twirl across the fields
in an adoring frenzy.
Chill is forgotten.
Our feet sing like hummingbirds.
Sun fingers tickle our souls.

In my moonlight dream
I can't believe I'm really here
we’re dancing in a forest
You light my life when you're near
Green earth is our floor
Our steps are magic in this place
and moon beams - our disco ball
Stars all aligned - for loves embrace
while soft music is the night
Romantic whispers feel so right

You are clad in white
Now look deeper to the heart
My golden gown sweeps the ground
I was mesmerized from the start
My beautiful knight - 
Princess shining in the day
Your bright eyes adore me as
I'm taken by all your ways
you twirl me among the trees
Dreamer's breath becomes love's breeze

*Andrea wrote the original "My Moonlight Dream" as a double tanka (from the gal's perspective and all the odd numbered lines in this poem).  I came along and harmonized it by adding alternating rhyming lines (from the guy's perspective and all the even numbered lines in this poem) for each of her lines.. Thus a new duet original, "All Your Ways". Hope you enjoy it!

Sun Dancing

dancing across sky
stepping between passing clouds
not skipping a beat
the moon longs for attention
in the end sun is eclipsed

will it never end?
(this question from projection)
a stark scene indeed –
world in this awful white shroud,
memory of spring erased

but courage my friends
bountiful spring will return
in its old glory
for now a shoot breaks the snow
nether gods have awakened!

It's Spring Again

Spring has come again.
It’s time to visit good friends.
Get off of your butt.
Lay laziness aside man.
Dance and prance and make romance.

Sun Dancing

sunshine dancing on the rippling water sets it glistening reflecting the sun's beauty in sparkling water diamonds

Sommerreigen/Summer Dance/Baile de Verano/Danza Estate

Schmetterlinge im Tanz 
Sommerreigen am Nachmittag
Mosaik der Natur 

Von Ferne der Ruf eines Kuckucks
Aus seinem unsichtbarem Versteck 


The dance of Butterflies 
Summer roundelay in the afternoon 
A mosaic of nature 

From the distance the cry of a cuckoo 
Out of his invisible hiding 


Baile de mariposas 
Corro de verano en la tarde
Mosaico de naturaleza

De la distancia un grito de cuco 
De su invisible escondite 


Farfalle nella danza
Danza estate nel pomeriggio
Mosaico della  natura

Il grido di un cuculo
Dal suo invisibile nascondiglio

Flight - for Metamorph Contest

	Flight (Original poem)

	It’s morning
	early on when
	I begin to sparkle, 
	I radiate,
	burn bright,
	reach high and grasp,
	talk fast and loud,
	create chaos,
	risk all to
	(flying is the best part).

	Flight (Tanka)

	Morning, early on.
	I dance, radiate, burn bright, 
	chaos in my grasp. 
	I’ll chance my manic madness — 
	anything so I can fly.
