An Island Refuge

on a deserted island drenched in light sparkling waves dance and lovers softly sigh a refuge for romance caressed by night lovers amorously swoon at the sight of the glowing orb, breathtakingly nigh on a deserted island drenched in light bathed in a full moon, young lovers shine bright balmy breezes blow, a tropical high a refuge for romance caressed by night the moon hypnotizes from sunken height as passion spreads wings from heavenly sky on a deserted island drenched in light whispers from the sand, a new song to write on a bended knee, their tears of joy cry a refuge for romance caressed by night the beach shares their dreams, the future invites a love eternal, they cannot deny on a deserted island drenched in light a refuge for romance caressed by night By Rhonda Johnson-Saunders, March 10, 2012 for A Tropical Theme Under the Moonlight contest (Gail Doyle) third place

The Play of Light

I love to watch the play of light
As I look out across the bay
On moonlit waters clear and bright.

It’s magic on a summer’s night,
This feeling, oh, I cannot say :
I love to watch the play of light.

Upon the shore, waves shining white,
Rolling, splashing as they play
On moonlit waters clear and bright.

Now spangled stars come into sight
To mark the ending of the day.
I love to watch their play of light.

So soon the moon is at its height
Where from it shoots a single ray
On moonlit waters clear and bright.

She sails away just like a kite –
Oh please don’t go, can you not stay ?
I love to watch the play of light
On moonlit waters clear and bright.

With Final Burst

With final burst of golden rays
sun sets below the horizon
day fades away and here night stays

From south gentle warm breeze plays
luring beckoning the siren
with final burst of golden rays

Siren calls hearts are set ablaze
and rising up comes Poseidon
day fades away and here night  stays

Together they play in the bays
ride waves on the crest of Zion
with final burst of golden rays

There is no more time for delays
a merry nod to Orion 
day fades away and here night stays

As departing we go our ways
as daylight for us is poison
With final burst of golden rays
day fades away and night here stays

When The Sea Is Angry

When the sea is angry
 Waves, like knives, penetrate deeply
Secrets are revealed
                                                     
Stingrays uncovered, at risk
 Burrow deep
When the sea is angry 
                                                                            
Shells buried for time unknown
 Surface in brilliant majesty
Secrets are revealed

The coral braces, mortality guaranteed
 Death and destruction inevitable
When the sea is angry

Sand scattered, settles again
 History buried, rears its head
Secrets are revealed

What is exposed, covered again
 Nothing left for man
When the sea is angry

An explosion born of fury
 Brings forth, then takes away again
When the sea is angry
Secrets are revealed

Tell me Again


Tell me again, and take hold of my hand. 
I hear, but the words mean nothing to me, 
Speak to me softly, till I understand.

Harsh winds are wounding; they whip up the sand, 
So it stings my eyes and I cannot see. 
Tell me again, and take hold of my hand. 

 A bewildered  traveler, lost in a strange land.
The doors are all locked and I don’t have a key
Speak to me softly, till I understand. 

And walk with me now, along the seastrand 
Where the water is trapped and fights to be free 
Tell me again, and take hold of my hand. 

I don't belong to the life I had planned, 
And I've left behind my old used-to-be, 
Speak to me softly, till I understand. 

I see your words clearly drawn in the sand 
And watch them slowly erased by the sea. 
Tell me again, and take hold of my hand. 
Speak to me softly, till I understand.

Alone

The Christmas tree stands alone
But still decorated with lights glowing
The family has come and gone

A misty tear drop with a quiet groan
Remembering the days when they were home
The Christmas tree stands alone

Wanting little ones to come and crawl in zone
Of the blanket, packages, and decorations
The family has come and gone

Leftover food, torn wrap, lights that shone
Guiding them to this warm old home
The Christmas tree stands alone

Dirty dishes, soiled placemats, candles blown
Still longing for them at home
The family has come and gone

Time passes, situations change
The love in my heart remains the same
The Christmas tree stands alone
The family has come and gone

A gift, a stone, shaped by love's tides

I feel its warn-down weathered sides
From our old flame that will not sleep
A gift, a stone, shaped by love’s tides

The old are all by cruel world tried
And endlessly no heart can weep
I feel its warn-down weathered sides

He fell in love when she first sighed
She tossed his token on her heap
A gift, a stone, shaped by love’s tides.


The lovely doll was tossed aside
Her owner searched for passion deep
I feel its warn-down weathered sides

The mother weeps: in earth it abides
Doctors could not her babe in her keep
A gift, a stone, shaped by love’s tides.

I’ll wait for you till I have died
Remembering your sea-ward leap. 
I feel its warn-down weathered sides
A gift, a stone, shaped by love’s tides


*this is another experimentation with a new genre, despite it's sombriety*
