Touch Me, Dream Weaver

.
..
...
Dream
Weaver,
Where are you?
Caress my hair,
drift through my mind's eye...
Let your fingers dig deep,
unearth the day's toils, plant seeds
that give birth to joyful tendrils
Use these, weave me rivered reveries...
Stay by my side 'til Sun kisses my cheeks


                                                 Blanket me in your kaleidoscope warmth
                                                     let silken threads of dreams tickle me,
                                                           so smiles meet my lips as I sleep
                                                                     Unravel my wrinkled mind,
                                                                 smoothen it, breathe new life
                                                                           with your magic touch
                                                                                    Let me feel you,
                                                                                     Dream Weaver
                                                                                                     Visit
                                                                                                       me...
                                                                                                             ..

Response of A Harried Housewife To Her Spouse

“The children are always interrupting. You never have time for me,” her husband whined as he dropped his dirty clothes right there on the floor by the bed. Trying not to roll her eyes, she gave this quick response to her disgruntled spouse: “The kids, chores and mishaps have me spinning, and you tell me you feel rejected. To have a blissful home takes two. Consideration is key. I’m also missing you! To be successful in our bed, take time OUT of it. . . for ME!” A Double Etheree written May 27, 2012 for David Williams' The Three H's Poetry Contest

The Gracious

One little sunflower alone among many headless stems poses by my mailbox. Some summers ago, others flourished there, but were all mown down. If they can forgive their being slain, perhaps they will resurge and rejoin her. Today as I back my car out onto the street, I chance to glance over where that one new flower has remained, and I see, to my delight, that the lone sunflower has brilliantly turned into a small and gracious group of three! for the Encounters with Flowers Poetry contest

In the Empire of the Ice

(These are 2 etheree I put together to form a double etheree.
They were inspired by the marvelous
documentary movie "March of the Penguins.")

In the Empire of the Ice:
“The Plunge” & “When Childhood Ends”

They poke small heads out from underbellies;
feeling chill, retreat; and shivering,
remain a while longer where it’s
safe.  Nourished by both parents,
the chicks adapt.  One day
they’re left alone, but
Sea soon beckons 
them, and . . .  they
take the
plunge.
Five 
years they
play, chase warm
waters’ flow and grow
with stomachs always full
before black heads emerge from
sea. . . Swollen bellies slide on ice.
Upright, they resolutely waddle
miles home. . . fierce winter storms not prevailing.

Tomorrow's Grace

When children are taught never to forget conflicts’ lessons, to love all humans, to honor those through history who, selfless, wrought liberty. . . Then will spangled dreams of world peace be fulfilled as God imparts tomorrow’s grace on all. Written on an Independence Day, maybe in 2004 when my husband was involved with a biker group, and it was so boring to me, i just sat by a tent and wrote this poem. For the Didactic poetry contest of Regina Riddle

Tantalizing Love

Tantalizing love, how long I’ve known you.
How often I’ve succumbed to you, but
how often I’ve resisted too -
while wanting you so badly.
I’ll never tire of you,
nor do I want to,
for you’ve been a 
part of my
greatest
times.
I 
have had
to learn to
control myself
when you are around.
I’m not the only one
who loves you more than I should.
You are so good when you are bad!
Oh, to breathe your scent and hold you to
my lips! Delicious food, I adore you.

The Awakening

Dawn
inflames,
arousing
pink passion of
trembling dew-damp bloom;
peach bliss of morning's kiss
coaxes a roseate flush;
warmed inner whorls teased to unfold,
the blushing bud swelling to open,
sun tonguing fragile folds, petals parting.

BROKEN FLOWERS

No
need for
red roses
Broken flowers
in a child’s small hand
They make me understand
that beauty is found within
the dirt and grass and broken stems
Who needs florists’ bouquets when this child
loved me enough to pick broken flowers

In the Desert

I wandered restlessly in the desert as the sands of time blistered my weary feet. Then as the sun bled crimson and night’s coolness washed over me, I awoke! Again, that damn Sandman had snatched slumber’s deepest comfort from me. Written by 9/15/2014 by Andrea Dietrich for nette onclaud's "In the Desert" Poetry Contest

Warmth

Sun
kiss me
your sweet rays
let your warm breath
touched upon my face 
bathe me with your radiance
and witness as a smile blooms
from my eyes that glow in surprise
to my full lips longing to be sealed
by an endearing and passionate kiss!

HEAR THOSE BELLS (Etheree and Tanka combined)

HEAR THOSE BELLS (Etheree and Tanka combined)

hear?
those bells
wedding bells
one plus one    two
it is a magic time
when promises are made
a lifetime commitment     two
at the time so easy to do
but  there will surely be many trials
two souls in a give-and-take arrangement

many couples fail
fail to give each other space
space to know themselves
and those who weather the storms
owe thanks to god’s bright angel’s

Poems As Butterflies

There
is a 
beauty in 
lucidity
when images are
wondrously concrete. . . a
butterfly’s opalescent
wings unfolded on a shiny 
leaf - not flitting about . . .  Poems that
don’t elude, the ones I choose to peruse.

The Moon Smiles

The moon beguiles us to embrace again
And so you wrap your arms around me
I hear your whisper softly now
Loving words that caress me
You turn my face to yours
So your eyes can speak
Your lips move close
I tremble
Our lips
Kiss
Again
And again
More deeply now
You’re taking over
Chasing inhibitions
You whisper your devotion
As your mouth starts its journey down
Everything seems like a dream to me
The moon looks down with smile of contentment

Save Nature

The dog days of summer have come and gone
Heat's quickly being replaced by cold
Autumn's arriving with a surge
Vibrant hues adorn the trees
Painting the perfect scene
Deer in the meadow
Birds all abound
Shorter days
Long nights
Clear
Open
Release
Set them free
Nature has called
Mankind must answer
Preserving what is true
The writing is on the wall
Think globally act locally
Helping to save the environment
We can make this a better place to live

BEAUTIFUL BROKENESS

Sun is rising, new day in Africa
Construction redefines horizon
Opportunity everywhere
Magnificent obsession
Professionals working
Business booming
People moving
Successful
Future
Bright
Night
Lonely
Parentless
Vulnerable 
Forgotten children
Without hope or future
Absolutely desperate 
Beautiful brokenness exists
Incredible emptiness abounds
Never enjoying the sunrise of love

*The contrast I see in Ethiopia, an emerging Nation 
completely focused on progress, while the orphan child 
sinks deeper into desperation from neglect.

I need a poetess

I need a poetess with passionate pens
To write me real and romantic rhymes
I need a sweet, super souper;
To write lovely lyrics
And make my heart happy
Every day and night
We’ll be lively;
Please will you
Be the
One!

Ferocious

The blood- so much of it upon the floor
of that small cell - was all that remained
of fury in a prison hell.
The guards could find no weapons,
for what they'd missed was this:
the slaughter had been
wrought simply by
a female
inmate's
fists.

She Craved

She Craved For the beast. Amidst his lair In candle surround, Ripped white linen clings As their sweated bodies writhe. In unification, his seed Shall spawn the beginning of the dark. Whilst his translucent shadows walk earths light. .

Cruelest Winds

Autumn leaves released against the cruelest winds
unmoored, without  a distant shore to land
have no instruction, nor direction, 
swept up on waves of winter seas
Drifting boats without their oars
curled tight against themselves
Here, there, ...soaring where?
until they fall
and crumble
into
dust

While
I must
not stumble 
and must not curl
tight against myself
but be kin to nature...
soar the waves of winter seas
adrift in a sea of knowledge
following directions of my heart
unmoored, but with a distant shore to land
against the future of autumn's cruelest wind

The Kite

THE KITE

Today, walking on the beach, lost in thought,	
I came across a father and son
At the end of the road, tied to			
A kite, pulling the heart strings,			
Soaring towards the sky,				
Climbing on fir trees,				
Over meadows,					
Full of love,					
Passion,					
Lust,						
Trust,						
Promise,					
Of future,					
Filled with pleasure,			
Impending nuptials,			
Reaching for the heavens,		
The plane that takes you away,	
Caught in turbulence, like our lives.
Destroyed, like the kite that hits the ground,
But the man fixes it and I….still hope.

Touch Me - Dusk

warmth
 
fading
 
at sunset
 
cooler breezes
 
evoke slight goose bumps
 
or perhaps they are caused
 
by the spectral reflection
 
of sky colors kissing the sea
 
overwhelmed by many sensations
 
dusk evolves slowly in the April sky
 
I shiver, knowing Holy Saturday
 
pulls curtains of anguish to a close
 
remaining awake to see dawn
 
tapping Resurrection’s hope
 
wrapping my weary heart
 
sensing salvation
 
as Christ rises
 
Easter morn
 
love brings
 
joy

Cash Gone in Tax

Cash
Slashed by
Uncle Sam
Hard earned wages
Burned as income tax
Cash gone like blowing wind
Tax is not like sweet vermouth
This is just like pulling hen’s tooth
Tax going up, paycheck going down
Tax man leave us alone—we need a break!

Seek Elsewhere Death!

She,
hung a,
Hummingbird,
Feeder near the,
Window of my room,
So I can look outside,
See life again as God's gift,
And raise my broken spirits up.
She doesn't know how much she gives me,
But I vow to live because she loves me.

ACRID SOUL

HURT (Acrid Soul)

Hurt
Lingers
on her tongue.
Lips unable
to adjust. Prayers be-
came her remedy. Lips
slowly moving; causing her
tongue to breathe yet again. In hopes
of not tasting another acrid
soul as he. Now, oft to the next entree.
