Star Sugar

Oh, scattered flecks that sparkle light like crystals emptied from a bowl to dust the skies from some great height! Oh, scattered flecks that sparkle light, you sweeten up my somber night. Delight the lone and searching soul, oh, scattered flecks that sparkle light like crystals emptied from a bowl.

Moonbeams

The moonbeams crossed the horizon
Carrying the sun in its wake
Soft light 'pon the grass like diamonds
The moonbeams crossed the horizon 
Caressing each scrutiny wizened 
Opaque hopes and moods forsake
The moonbeams crossed the horizon
Carrying the sun in its wake

3 Musketeers A collaboration with Casarah Nance and Tim Smith

I wrote a poem of despair 
My hearts been tossed up into the air 

She wrote a limerick that was taboo 
She made me laugh when I was so blue 

Entering stage left was Tim 
Writing of past lovers sins in a hymn 

It seems that we laugh or we cry 
We live, we love, or we die 

The three of us, holding poetic swords up high 
Throughout the ages we all do fly 

No subject goes unspoken 
For the freedom of words we've awoken 

No battle to long or too fierce 
Our duels are true and unrehearsed. 

Through blood, sweat and tears 
A bond so strong that sweetens the years 

All for one and one for all 
Let us carry on and have a ball!

Watching the Shadows Grow

Dawn peeks over the hill and I.
The lemon lights stretch the shadows.
The beasts and wee birds grumble and fly,
each seeking food, and so do I.
My stomach growls at cocks reply
the cows in the pasture all low.
We sit with tea just he and  I
watching the sun grow the shadow.


*Zeugma line 1 Dawn peeks over the HILL.
                     Dawn peeks over the I.

Zeugma

You made me wait for love and a cab ride. 
You refused to return keys and kisses. 
You left me broken hearted and outside. 
You made me wait for love and a cab ride. 
I felt cold tears as I cried and I died. 
Leaving me against my wants and wishes. 
You made me wait for love and a cab ride. 
You refused to return my keys and kisses.

Every Time I Have You Close- Triolet Sonnet

 
(Triolet Sonnet) 


Every time I have you close... 
This remarkable yearning,of you brings me home. 
The sound of your voice reaches just the clouds above. 
Walls trembled and time for me, a moment froze. 
My lips stilled, by the the whisper of your gentle kiss, 
My heart evoked so much, I coudn't just miss. 
Every time I have you close... 
I don't really know what I've done, to deserve all this 

But anyway, I am so happy to get your love, your kiss, 
Every time I have you close... 
I know that losing you, would really hurt, 
Thorns would sting me more, and no more a rose. 
Walls tremble and for me, time a moment froze. 
This remarkable yearning, of you brings me home.

My triolet sonnet here is free style ...that means, there's no syllable counting at all. I just didn't wanted any restrictions with this love poem in this form for some reason. I just wrote all the lines as it came to me from my heart.

Moon

               
Low hanging moon with softened gleam; As stars peek down, I take my rest. I lie beneath a sheen of cream. Low hanging moon with softened gleam, Your essence wraps around my dream, Then flees beyond your sleepy crest. Low hanging moon with softened gleam; As stars peek down, I take my rest.

How Softly, Deeply

In silence, undisturbed tonight,
how softly, deeply Winter creeps,
imparting token mounds of white.
In silence, undisturbed tonight,
Full Moon, who casts pearlescent light,
is keeper of a world that sleeps
in silence undisturbed tonight.
How softly, deeply Winter creeps.

When All That's Left Is To Love

.

You are the temple, I worship within,
living prayers of merging love and lust,
breath writes holy scriptures upon our skin.
You are the temple, I worship within,
a sacred place for me to enter in,
my priesthood's vows renewed by ev'ry thrust.
You are the temple, I worship within,
living prayers of merging love and lust. 














*This is an adaptation of French Triolet, a form which is officially written
in lines of 8 syllables, incorporating Iambic Tetrameter. Instead of French Iambic T, 
I am in the mood for a more rambling Colonial English flavour :P
