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.

          When dark clouds converge
                As cold winter plots
                To dampen the soul
                 In the face of fear
                   And adversity...

                 When crisis looms
                     And dejection
                  Flirts with despair
                     Not all is lost...

                       A swallow
                     Comes along

                       The joys
                       Of spring

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.

Dismal stars out
Contrite to feelings
The moon glows brightly.
The storm is inside.
Tears form as I cry.

Regret, I don’t.
Have I done wrong?
Here and now stand
Weeping for hope.

Willow tree
Sways in wind
Vision rapt

Hope gales.

Hopes are buried treasures Gold daffodils of spring A faith seed planted deep Watered by love's well-spring A farmer's garden tilled With no evidence green Faith inside the seeds Waits for warmth and rain When everything's right The plants spring forth seen Hope's now evident Confidence shown Hope now revealed An assurance Support displayed Hope's exposed In flowers Garden seed Faith, hope These two Seen

A winged dream of bliss,
pain   a nightmare's child
toil     an echo past
plenty  a ripe kiss
war      unheard unmissed

none want for food
all have a roof
deserts with rain
oceans with fish

room for all
fires warm
water blest

at peace

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
and wishing

The sun rose fireball red Then splashed of tangerine A miraculous work The one of which I dreamed No canvas can contain A pen's ink can't measure The dream held at night Close as lover's breast In daylight remote When gray clouds oppress Giving trees a coat Beauty dissolves Wind and cold_ chill Sunlight captures Love's quiet stilled A cloud breaks Sunlight beams Hope returns Sun sets Yellow Grand

Desire of the flesh 
The need of closeness
Sensing the goodness
Of engulfing hope
That emulates there

Hope an ideal
Of mind and soul
Needing you near

The touch says
Here is love
Love brings hope

Give thanks
Kneel, pray

Hope Gone

Upon thy pillow, I wearily hope for youth’s restful nights I once loved to spend in towering dreams. Images past behind closed eyes - romantic plans and lofty goals. Naïve thoughts turn to aged days of loss, again taunting me.

While culture strengthens
In love of poetry,
In give and to take
An exchange of view.

While together
A common cause,
We work so hard
To understand.

In this way
A small task.

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...

Life has challenges…
Confront them each day
Some have good endings
Some can cause despair
They are always there

Our perception
Is the answer
Of how we feel
About outcomes

Do we see
Or half-full?

Living in Hope

Living in hope

Patient and trustful
I willingly wait
For things to resolve
Though closure eludes
Solutions must thrive

Content to wait
for time to come
When things improve
And reach accord

Until then
I’m happy 
For you, though

I still 
Live in

Impassioned Descent

Cunning seducer
Your presence beguiles
I taste your fever
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
My fate

If you see my soul,
If the serpent snaps,
If you slice its vein,
Feel my tempered rage,

For I am cruel,
For you are mine,
For in this hex,
I spit my tooth,

Nerve Exposed,

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

Raising The Blinds

A morn's sun raised the blinds As sunlight pinked the clouds Its colors fell across My lap, tinting my words Sublime, pen and ink tried To contain sentiment As they spilled blue The blinds dissipate As words release truth High the sun rises Its light controls pen Slower the pen Then pauses, waits As the day wears Colors painted Artist tool A palette As sun sets Blinds close Darkness Shades
Inspired by a stanza written by Robert Frost: The Death Of The Hired Man "Part of a moon was falling down the west, Dragging the whole sky with it to the hills. Its light pored softly in her lap. She saw it And spread her apron to it. She put out her hand" Just part of it ...What struck me was "moon was falling down the west"

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.
