BUTTERFLY KISS

*:BUTTERFLY KISS:*

I'm still alive and I don't know why?
My heart survived falling from the butterfly sky.

Caught by the hands of destiny.
With visions only I can see!

My love I heard your call.
Wings of a butterfly broke my fall.

Love motion is in the air, a love no one can compare.
Indulging a look-a stare~that we both share.

Reminiscing our love made out of steal.
Awe~:*! To  them butterfly kisses that felt so real!

Flowing like Amazing Grace, 
a shining light upon my face.

I traveled fast and far, longing to be in your arms.
I desire the warm sensation of your charms.

Your safe love will help me carry on,
with the strength and bond~the love you set upon.

Nothing is better than a sensual butterfly kiss.
Beyond the sensation of heaven's pure bliss.

Fluttering in the clouds aiming for the moon.
A dream of reality, out of my cocoon I bloom!

Valued by the art of true beauty and it's rarity.
True love flapping in the mist of clarity.

I entwine that I am yours and you are mine.
Bonded together till the end of time.

With the vision my heart is no longer blind.
Two broken heart at last combined.

I glide below to touch your lip.
Our lashes touch from tip to tip.

Caressing each other as our wings expand
Two heart two kisses collide and land

Holding your hand reaching to the rainbow sky.
Kisses:*kisses:* like the butterfly!

((By;p.d.))

Inspired by Nikko, my coolest poet friend
Dedicated to :*Nathan*:

Mademoiselle Butterfly

There is a butterfly child without a voice Born of obscure roots, and gossamer fragility Fluttering wings swarming on her brow Her throat so full of songs Of words never written She is a tree in spring Trembling with the hope of leaves Of which the leaves are tongues Her nature gentle, soft as rain Fragrant blossom, nectar sweet Bathed in humbled innocence... Along he came…a collector of things His butterfly net, along with schemes Upon a budding branch with false intent And kisses spent, upon her dainty cheeks So into bliss she flew… and promises of love, yet with a sting, of false words never said, Knowing well, she was in his spell Unwritten words, with no intent to keep He said farewell, with lies and smiles Her frail wings pierced upon the day With love impaled upon her wings Her eyes would cry soliloquies Unwritten words upon her tongue While the winds of autumn tell her song…

Butterfly Landings

Butterfly Landings 



It’s a precarious perch
High by a skydive
In such a leap of faith
A leap of love
Circumnavigates these boots of Earth
Fellow to the stratospheres
These butterfly landings
Of you in my heart

Destinies lance
Has shot me full to the sun
On the twirling chant sung
Ever re initiates
And sounds the river onward runs
Always
Of your name
Settles red iridescence
To tip the scales
These butterfly landings
Of you in my arms

I see you in precognitions
Flashes
In my obsessions of your hair
Lip-syncing to the kisses 
In my passions of your eyes
Where my heady desires evolve
This molecular bonding’s
These butterfly landings
Of you inside my soul

It’s a precarious perch
To expressive to encapsulate
How much I love you
It’s a peculiar laugh
That admits I have never even met you
But all of you inexorable
I am conceded to the pull
I am bound to the groundings
In these butterfly landings
Of you







( Everything I am
  Everything I do
  Wrapped inside
  Those landing butterflies
  I cannot express
  In any vocabulary of words
  Only in the dictionary of unspoken eternals
  Lay the definitions of
  
  How much I love 
  How much I need 
  How much I want 

  You 

  They beg with you
  This man on bended knees
  How this strength in me
  Pleads

  Come back to me

  Come back to me )

A Butterfly's Ballad in the Faraway Land

I get a glimpse of you A soft hue of light lavender rising in my dawn gliding fervently in sun-kissed breeze An ephemeral beauty enchanting the depths of these caramel eyes flaunting your gossamer wings in whimsical ballad sprinkling ethereal dew upon the embers of my heart And I feel it,a florescent flutter tickling my bare shoulder a slight inhale of fragrance's breath lingering within my thought chasing the back of my neck,teasing in wistful wonder My blushed smile preserves the moment Of your tender brush across the silk peach of my cheek Of your fervent kiss fading in evanescent bliss and unspoiled warmth of ardent touch upon my hair My heart capture the seconds till those iridescent wings fly high in sheer splendor to crimson blossoms which bloom,which sway which bleed and bend,which wrap their thorns around my feet,around my hand So,I would not follow dreams'coloured pastels So I would not run to you,and I would not find you by Spring's muddy gardens,in the faraway land.

THE BUTTERFLY FLUTTERS BY

I thought about you today
the sky was oh so blue
Wondered if we met what would I say
would you feel if my words were few
Your poems have me under your spell
the spring tulips are dancing too
I've got a secret I want to tell
a dreamer's fantasy of me and you

The butterfly flutters by
leaves me speechless, wouldn't even try
cause it's a feeling I can't describe
when sweet beauty meets the eye

I thought about you today
the breeze whispers a lover's clue
I wondered what words you might say
if you really knew I was into you
Your poems have me under your spell
spring's touch makes all things new
My secret's in your next Soup mail
a dreamer's fantasy of me and you

The butterfly flutters by
leaves me speechless, wouldn't even try
cause it's a feeling I can't describe
when sweet beauty meets the eye

In spring, creation comes to life
now the cocoon's an empty shell
I'm crazy for you, baby.. 
you've got me under your spell

The butterfly flutters by
love birds sing, I don't question why
It's spring fever, it can't be denied
your sweet beauty is in my eye

Sweet beauty
    ..in my eye

Rainbow Dreams - co authored

Rainbows are smiles when the rain tumbles down
My heart is showering as all my sorrows do drown
Every dew drop glistening, delivered from heaven.
Rainbows are smiles when clouds are deaden

When nature shines, our goodness grows
Trusting in the soil to nurture us so
With a sky filled with colors that make us glow
Rainbows are the goodness that makes love flow


Co-Authored by the beautiful Casarah Nance and Arthur Vaso

DESTINY

ugly and awkward
only purpose to survive
until she cocoons

destiny won't crawl
springs forth in fanciful flight 
angelic rebirth

*the destiny of the butterfly!

Global Warming

As I wake up to the dawn of another day
I wrestle with myself and ask why bother
Just another day, without any warmth
There is a chill in my heart, sadly this is true

The coffee pot sings, an attempt to lift spirits
I confess I welcome even this small endeavor
A machine trying to cheer me up,
In this a cold cold cold world

How can this be?
Me so thirsty and cold?
I hypnotically prepare for another day
As I curse Al Gore

I see you all scurry from here to god knows where
Curious I ponder what’s the rush?
Snow falls from a dreary sky
A blanket of white to chill us even more

A child romps happily in springtime meadows
Chasing butterflies and dreams
His heart now filled with Vodka Ice
How did such warmth turn into an ancient glacier?

In the subway deep underground
I see a stranger, a woman, tears falling
Icicles form under her eyes
She too has a frozen heart

I would hug her, with words of comfort
If not for the invisible cold barrier between us
We are many on this subway of desire
So close, yet we all feel the northern winds of loneliness

This world of love and compassion has become frozen
We have forgotten the season of spring
We have been frozen out of emotions garden
We shiver here in the cold together alone

I rise up from the subways depths
I know my heart was murdered by the arctic winds
Something inside of me , cries
Go Go Go melt something, anything

I pass the newsstand selling flowers
I buy one single rose
The woman with icicle tears is nearby
I hand her this rose

I whisper, what this planet needs
Is some global warming
She smiles a sad thank you
As I walk away, hoping 

Global warming takes hold

The Butterfly

I pursued a butterfly through the woods.
It fluttered, just always beyond my reach.
The more I pursued, the more it teased.
Stalking it, like prey, it just fluttered away.
I found  a moss covered log to rest,
Sitting in a serene, secluded spot.
A butterfly came ,sat upon the log.
I caught it in the palm of my hands.
It's wings became a rapid flutter,
Trying to escape my grasp.
I opened my hands , freeing it.
If we pursued things in life,
They become unattainable.
If we sit quietly and reflect,
they become attainable.
Chasing our dreams may be
as allusive as the butterfly.
Finding them as beautiful as the butterfly.

On Butterfly Wings

On clear bright days I catch a glimpse
Of what is a rare and beautiful sight.
Endangered, once feared to be lost to time
A gem to the butterfly world.
The Monarch making a brave return
Bringing to me a smile on beating wings.
Timeless beauty wrapped in a silk cocoon
Free to flutter where the wind goes.
Dancing on air without missing a beat
Enchanted by your beating heart.
Knowing I have seen rare beauty.
On more than one occasion you have come,
Like the rainbow that comes by.
Peeking through the clouds, around corners.
Reminding me on several occasions,
To follow inspiration, to keep chasing rainbows.
To fly on butterfly wings.

For P.D., who constantly inspires...
Contest 'any old butterfly poem...
