Why He Beams

Pallid and forlorn,
my heart broke for her.
Never saw such gloom,
but somehow I knew
she shone from within...

She buried that,
feeling dry...gray-
a crumbled mask 
made out of dust.

I asked her
one cold night,
“Do you weep?”

“My tears
    fill up

vowed to
kiss her
every night,
let her feel
she was loved...

And oh! How much
love she can give!
She's still shy, hides
from time to time,
but her smiles break free...
(One can't trap light's glow)

Her warmth makes me beam,
reveled eclipses.

Moon dust becomes blush.

The Moon Dust will not Fall Nevermore


                                             At different times
                                             in separate beds
                                             we sleep to forget
                                             Sunset is sunrise
                                             and nobody cares

                                             There it's sunny
                                             and here it rains
                                             who needs rainbows
                                             if no one cares?

                                             The Moon dust 
                                             will not fall 




                                             That's that!
                                             Who cares?

                                             Just drowned coins
                                             a cracked glass
                                             feeble stars

                                             Where's the Moon dust?
                                             Where're the arrows?
                                             Where's the fairy?
                                             Where's our strong faith?

                                             A distance that drowns
                                             through forbidden dreams
                                             we wait for the Moon
                                             to sleep and forget
                                             and nobody cares!

Tidal Lullabyes

The man in the moon
changes position,
showering my eyes
with a moon dust of
tidal lullabyes.

Slumber takes hold,
dreamscapes unfold,
and the girl walks
towards an edge
I cannot
reach, before
stormy waves
grasp and

is stored
within two
flights moving
in opposite
directions, as
once again, we
feel the distance.

I wonder if in
another lifetime,
we find tickets for
the same outbound flight,
soaring towards dawn.

Dandelion Wishing

Recollections waft
across my mind like
wisps of soft white spores - 
the vague remnants of
my memory’s threads.

Spring’s sun-gold heads
I now can‘t hold!
But glimpsing them,
I can recall. . ..

a young girl
blowing fluff

Art and Ownership

People buy pictures
They have a notion
That they are owners
But actually
The pictures own them. 
They will outlive
Or outlast them
They are only
They purchase
Art will live.
And they...

Impassioned Descent

Cunning seducer
Your presence beguiles

My body complies
Good intentions die

Dare not touch me
For I shall fall
Where angels fly
And hell is nigh

Oh to taste
Faulted grace
Tempt me not

Too late

Raven's Watch

She's always there, watching
Over the quiet graves
Torn between life and death
Waiting 'till her time ends
When at last, she can be
Reunited with him

Without his strong arms
She falters and fails
Ne'er to love again
Her gentle heart is
Smashed beyond repair

She is the one
They call Raven
Soulless, helpless
Without his love

She stands and
Looks over

Where they

Celestial twirl

Planets in orbit
Some big and some small
Beings from outer space
Some named, others not
Discoveries made

Orbital spin
Perfect timing
In retrograde

Planets sway
Comets fall
Earth rotate

Moon Dust

Once upon a time my mother read me tales of princesses who joined with their prince - fairy tale romance. Wishing on stars, I hoped my prince was out there too. He hung the moon. What magic when life held such promise! I was spurred by . . . dreams. Love! It filled my mind. A young girl, I asked for just the moon! I longed for it. I searched for it. How elusive it seemed to be. Once found, it often disintegrated quickly, for it was - after all - simply the moon dust of dreams.

As ocean tides cascade from Amphitrite’s dewed breast with ripples of fine air in moans… she gushes out along white crest, the trail of love, passion, and faith. Searching tenderness that fondles heaved waves to soak every curve moist with finesse… she dives in rhapsody. Hymns cuddling sea across bright lune, her flesh of tones quenching dried hearts. She bestows on mankind life’s essence Primal… like raw night

Passed out

Toot, toot goes the train.
Jump, jump goes the brain.
Moved to a new house.
Old one had a mouse.
Sometimes change is good.

It's all the same!
Play the sleep game!

I can't sleep!
I can't sleep!

Passed out!
Passed out!

Love Yourself

I can't promise love
That from myself seek
That same acceptance,
That same forgiveness,
That same inner peace

I can't offer
What I don't own
And cannot give
Even myself.

I can't share
Tenderness -
True passion

The Glow of Angels

To think each star we see
was there but might not be.
A star when we were born
could now be dead and gone,
but even stars that die
will light eternity.

A wave forever
lights tomorrow's past,
then here and beyond,
washes in a flash
to infinity.

It touches all
but none can feel
the hint of warm

shines today
with angels

The Bird and The Moon

`` In the middle of a dream was I, when suddenly a sound which I thought profound, woke me up at night.. Squinting my eyes, got up to sight bluejay shrill, on my window sill; air wrapped in a fine mist, it sparkled like pearls on moon beams.. moon dust shone through the window as glistening long white trail.. Down swooped the bird, looping cold rays. I fell under magical spell; fumbled for my limbs, wibbly wobbly things; held fast on the bed, I was covered in fine silver cobwebs ... ~ For Catie Lindsey's "Diminished and Advancing Hexaverse Contest" ..

I know you are there
In light and darkness
Sunshine and rainfall
You are beside me

Who holds my hand
When I fall down
When my soul crushed

I know why

Why you care

In Your Eyes


                              For love has killed me
                              many times before

The contrast of the

From the petals,

Woodlands call fourth

Families spend time 
together amidst
clear warm days, into
short nights. Sharing their
laughter with delight.

Sun releases grip,
days light compresses.
Winds cool relief to
heat that oppresses.
Colors wane begins,
from brightest greens
of spring to shades
of golds and reds.
Browns of the dead.
Fresh harvest
abounds with
a bounty
of thanks

Colors hide

Like this time-worn  tiled roof
Moss-covered,  grimy , broke
Patched up  in places with 
Pieces  of  cheapest  tin 
And asbestos, mantling
A labouring  lattice

Of rafters, beams , ties 
Squatting  amidst  those
Rising,  flashy , fresh 
Modern constructs  by 
A  pell-mell  highway 

I too wait for
To give my space 

Ridding it
Of my stiff
Air and stern
