Moonlight Sewing Night

pearlescent moonbeams satin spools unravelling through dark threads of trees fragile crocheted filaments luminous lunar lacework scattered sequin stars bright beads on night's black fabric silken starlight strands darn darkness with silver yarn moonlight's purled embroidery

A sculpture of shadows and lines

She is in her bed, lights filtering through crown glass, shadows and curved lines playing with her nudity, an old erotic sculpture. Shadows and curved lines- they know how to play with her, where to land a kiss where to give a paint-brush touch how to caress silky curves. Each line tells her tale each curve longs for more caress, shadows crowned by lines perfect Michelangelo, a sculpture of light and shade. © kash poet ============================

TRANSCENDENCE

The distant mountain is ablaze
Sun    rain    clouds blend majesty

From my perch on the lookout hill
All land between is ocean

Clouds    like white waves    obscure the Earth
I bathe in that transcendence

In Dreams

Naked in the surf

   We splash and play together.

Falling to the sand

   In a hot lover's embrace....

 I awaken to snoring.

Half Truth Dreams

Lump of bitter dreams
In waking, tough to swallow
In sleep, liquid pools
to be tasted, drank silver,
only to metal harden.

Gracefully Bows As She Leaves

Forest alive now
Autumn colors brilliant glow
Poplar_ Maple grow
Colors seen_red, yellow, rust
Auroras of autumn flow

Elegantly dressed
For the last ball before snow
She smiles at artist
As he gathers paints blends shades
Painting her colorful gown

As sunlight dances 
Against gown that glows with dew
Gracefully she bows
As bare limbs begin to show
Last of grace before first snow

Dream's Child

Crescent moon in sky my dreams fly on silver wings past blue horizon a nest waiting among trees lush,evergreen rainforest. Distant island's call beyond moonlight sonata baby bird's first flight its growing wings soon cover me,my sleep and new born dreams. © 2011 kash poet ============================

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…………..

Azure Silks Blown in the Wind

Floating towards new moon--
a blanket flecked in diamonds
slips over the horizon.
A sliver of light over
azure silks blown in the wind.

Room for one more

Unique is crazy
Faceless people like to say,
They are full of it;
There's always room for one more
Creative soul in this world

summer harvest sweet

summer harvest sweet
plump fruit ready for picking
a cornucopia treat
one would be wise to know how
quickly ripeness turns to rot

Flame Theatre

Dancing candle flames, the nights flickering shadows, whirl about and play. They dance me to sleep at night and sleep their sleep, in the day.

A superb virtue—
Use for good, and not evil!

Kite Flying



the young boy running
his kite lifts into the sky
delighted laughter
his dreams no longer earthbound
oh, the possibilities

Random thoughts **49** Haiku--Tanka--Haiku

Haiku-Tanka-Haiku
5,7,5 -- 5,7,5,7,7 -- 5,7,5

Evil brews, no rules,
looming witches ride their brooms,
demon eyed ghouls drool.

Potions have been brewed,
voodoo dolls alter my mood.
Serial killers,
dead become walking dead,
I feel like I'm in "Thriller"

Vampires, Ware-wolves,
Kruger and Micheal Meyers,
stalking to retire..

Trillium’s Three! ©

Three bright white petals
Three large green rounded leaves
Three ‘blasts’ the trillium white star 
Points them close look-see!

Night opens two white bright strips
One going one way 
Another down its’ other way 
Around black routed highways!

Life Is A Puzzle

The puzzle of life
flowers a haven for death
Until it's your turn
to travel beyond this world
and reap your earthly reward

Flowers and Weeds



Weeds and flowers grow
Side by side in fertile ground
A verdant picture
Unknowing their given names
Who decides their place in life?

Two Paper Clips

by Michael J Falotico

                                                  My two paper clips..
                                       One holds dreams, second my past..
                                               Both close when I sleep.. 
                                              The pages flip as I dream..
                                           When I wake it's all the same..
