Stairway to the Stars

stairway to the stars celestial light beckons me no puddles overflow with tears my life’s silent movie reruns in my mind not a loved one left behind those I cherish wait for me lingering in paradise below the Earth loses color even the pyramids Eiffel Tower Broadway lights fade to those still confined in the worldly realm no legacy I leave just a kiss that carries rapidly vanishing memories my final farewell

Kiss the Rain

I'm leaving now, but here is a reminder
'Twill bring to you the days we walked through rain
So when you wish to feel my hand in yours
Or stroke your dripping hair-- Then kiss the rain

Though leaving now, I wish I could be with you
So when you feel o'erwhelmed with grief or pain
And long for my caress upon your face,
The rain will touch instead-- So kiss the rain

Whenever you have tho'ts of this sad parting
And salty tears your lovely cheeks do stain
To feel the tears for you I'll surely have
Do this, and I will too-- Go kiss the rain

Whenever you are longing for my presence
And times that we went strolling down the lane
I'll whisper soft endearments on the breeze
So heed the sighing wind-- And kiss the rain

If ever you should pine to hear me speaking
The thunder might burst forth with glorious main*
While drops that fall are sure to be my tears,
To feel them wet your skin-- Just kiss the rain

* Power or Force

Our Kiss

The night fell all around me sunshine washed away by salty drops dripping down onto my pillow blurring my mind I saw visions beautiful visions Bright as day Her light was there to guide me cross around her neck white flower in her hair cascading gently downward upon the bottom of her neck taking my hand we walk barefoot in the sand Her touch her sweet touch pulling me close her soft pink lips coming close oh so close pulling me in feelings so right Our lips touch pure bliss what a kiss releasing me tip of her tongue encircling mine emotions exploding losing track of time a moment, a lifetime I will never forget setting me free letting me be me

The Stone

The Tale below was carved one night,
Upon the Stone, by candlelight
...most won’t believe, but some just might
.........most won’t believe, but some just might

.                         Preface

Well James made Beth his lovely bride
(And angels smiled, though teary eyed)
...their bodies bound, their spirits tied
.........their bodies bound, their spirits tied

Upon her hand, a shimmer shone,
As bright as blood, a ruby Stone 
...and brighter still, as love had grown
.........and brighter still, as love had grown

Soon James was sent to man a sail
So Beth removed her wedding veil
...her eyes were bright, her face was pale
.........her eyes were bright, her face was pale

“Well, I’ll be here when you return”
Said Beth to James, who kissed in turn
...a kiss that made her body burn
.........a kiss that made her body burn

.                         BETH’S TALE

1.              The Dream
One night, within a dream deformed,
The cawing of a Crow informed
“...a Ship was stripped where winter stormed
.........a Ship was stripped where winter stormed

Midst winds and waves the thunder boomed
The Ship of Death was surely doomed
...the sea engulfed, the sea entombed
.........the sea engulfed, the sea entombed

Your James... denied by Davy Jones!
His spirit gone, his flesh and bones
...are resting now amongst the Stones
.........are resting now amongst the Stones”

2.               The Quest

Awoken by the ebon Wight
And beckoned by the baneful bight
...I left before the morning light
.........I left before the morning light

Throughout the realm I rode a roan
Until, in time, I reached the Stone
...where shades and dreams in darkness groan 
.........where shades and dreams in darkness groan 

While skipping up and down the sky
A missing moonbeam mocked my eye
...enough to make a Swallow cry
.........enough to make a Swallow cry

For someone stole a star or two
And something else that fate withdrew – jewel of joy, my James Bijou jewel of joy, my James Bijou

The shadows of the evening swelled
Where demons of the dusk had dwelled
...and in the far, a vesper knelled
.........and in the far, a vesper knelled

The Stone, beneath the sky, stood cold –
Between the runes, a vapour strolled
...a cloak of fleecy fog consoled
.........a cloak of fleecy fog consoled

A Raven on a branch, enthroned,
Her wings waved once, a wail intoned
...beyond the bay, a banshee moaned
.........beyond the bay, a banshee moaned

I lay beside the Stone, his bride
I lay beside the Stone and cried
...but were it I, instead, that died
.........but were it I, instead, that died

The rainbow of the moon fell dim
A midnight Swan soon ceased to swim if to hide all hint of him if to hide all hint of him

Between the willows in the swale
There sang a Bird, a Nightingale
...which left me faint and feeling frail
.........which left me faint and feeling frail

3.              Contact

I felt him breathe within a breeze
Responding to my anguished pleas
...and leaves blew by abandoned trees
.........and leaves blew by abandoned trees

“I miss you too, my darling Beth”
Re-echoed from the Ship of Death
...the future buried in a breath
.........the future buried in a breath
The Stone lit up a ruby sheen
And clouds were kindled crystalline
...with consequences, unforeseen
.........with consequences, unforeseen

Above, the wretched Raven soared
To where the Ship of Death lay moored
...beneath, the icy ocean roared
.........beneath, the icy ocean roared

4.               Release

I’m joined with James beneath the Stone,
Though to the Ship my spirit’s flown,
...for nevermore to be alone
.........for nevermore to be alone

.                         Epilogue

That night the wayward winds were weird 
The Ship of Death had disappeared
...coyotes called and mortals feared
.........coyotes called and mortals feared

At dusk, the craven shadows crawled
At dawn, the winds of mourning called
...upon the Stone two names were scrawled
.........upon the Stone two names were scrawled

The Raven sits, with wings outspread,
Atop the Stone which shades the dead sometimes shimmers ruby red sometimes shimmers ruby red

.                         Epitaph

Between the sounds, where silence seeps,
Their love lives on and never sleeps
...and yet, the weeping willow weeps
.........and yet, the weeping willow weeps

Well I declare

Well, I declare

On artful prints her beauty dwelt,
diffused in haze, a pristine bloom,
ethereal her figure svelte
and French perfume.

Well, I declare, her love I sought;
unplaced on canvas her response,
was diffident her stare and thought
of renaissance.

Alike a dancing muse she stepped
her graciousness, a veil of night,
caressing wave, the shoreline swept
her smiling bright.

Upon the sands she coasted then,
of Springtime incandescent beam
an everlasting red cayenne
and fervent dream.

A classic arts connoisseur
well, I declare, my reddened rose,
I yippee yipped with spree and spur
and kissed her nose. :)

Incredible Kiss

Baby it seems I've been waiting for years
So wipe away all those gone awry tears

I need you to come right over here
I will make your troubles all disappear

Your sweet smile and deep eyes are a delight
Come hold me tight on this beautiful night

Swing and we sway as we dance our first dance
Our eyes on each other, I'm deep in your trance

Your strength, your beauty, as perfect as a rose
Our hearts come together when I hold you close

When the dancing is over, I won't let you go
It's just the beginning of this fabulous show

My feelings are strong, one's I cannot dismiss
Come a little closer for this incredible kiss

Capture My Soul

That first kiss from you put my heart out of whack
Shaking at my knees, there was no turning back
I'm hooked, I'm baited you've captured my soul
Your kindness and affection have taken their toll

The passion you give me has awakened me tonight
I'm not putting up a fight, these feelings are so right
Your silhouette in the spotlight puts me in a trance
With a tremble in my voice, I ask you to come dance

Slow dancing the night away, it is poetry in motion
Your touch so soft and smooth, evoking every emotion
My feet are floating, my heart is soaring in heaven, so it seems
I'll capture the moment, not let you go, you're the girl my dreams

Her Kiss

We've been talking forever, so does it seem
You're all that I wanted, the girl of my dream
So long have I waited to see such a sight
My beautiful angel all dressed in white

You walk down the aisle,with your head held high
No longer waiting, not letting time slip on by
My beauty, my vision, tonight you'll be mine
I'll hug you and kiss you til the end of time

You'll take my hand, and I'll give you my heart
Together in unison we won't grow apart
So stop all this talking, stop telling us how
Come closer sweetheart, I need to kiss you now

The sea-waves touch

The sea-waves touch your open palms;
along the shore, blue waters bid
when stormy sea henceforth becalms,
and tide engulfs what skies forbid.

When solemn eyes their oaths avow
and roses beckon on your dream,
reach out and find his drifting prow
aboard your trip's perpetual stream.

Cause thoughts, like boats, may drift amiss;
for those who lived in old realms,
eternal love's confession is,
the touch of sea, upon the palms.

Cause those beloved, forever pledge
since prior times,
and search those loves on skyline's edge
who kissed their eyes.

- Just A Kiss -


                                                 A small miracle
                                      When you kiss my lips tenderly
                                        my heart feels like a volcano
                                  The earth spins around like a carousel


                                                            ....... Kiss me one more time

Some say my work's artistic
Some think my work is plain
Some say my work is brilliant
Some are convinced that I'm insane

Some have called me romantic
Some have called me a beast
Some go into great details
Some are brief to say the least

Some use fancy punctuation
Some capitalize everything
Some offer me hugs, even kisses
Some others are down right mean

Some feel things I'm writing
Some just cut and paste
Some make me want to dance
Some others are just a waste

Snake Bit

I was thirteen and you...well you, a sophomore by then..
that night you stopped by to see me, at the Jr high game.

Friends most of our called me "kid" and I loved it when you did!
Hey "kid" come go for a ride on my new motorcycle! 
The night was slipped your leather football jacket around me and
we both laughed as I disappeared into its sleeves.

What would I have to give to once again relive .. the way you looked at me just then?
As though you'd never really seen me I was no longer a kid..

Your big hands gently touching my face..fingers running through my long
black hair..carefully exploring my mouth as though you were tasting my smiles..

Suddenly, you jumped back like you had just been snake bitten,
and we were both laughing again.....

You never called me "kid" again...
I never told you, that was my first kiss..

My thirst for undying love I wished to quench 
Drinking from the source of your enviable lips  
Few droplets of nectar my soul was able to sip
That ample were though my craving to eclipse!

Butterfly Kisses

To touch someone’s eyelashes with your own up close to their face, now isn’t that silly? I can just hear all the virile men groan. . . Butterfly kisses with one’s date? Really? To tell you the truth, I’d not even heard of butterfly kisses until one fine day, and I might even have found it absurd had someone most special not kissed me that way! But there was a boy one night that I chose to go on a date with - a flirtatious tease. He said, “Let’s rub noses and be Eskimos” and playfully put my young self at ease. And then he said, “Kiss me like a butterfly.” I giggled when he drew his face close to mine. Both our lashes were long, and on our first try our lashes were kissing; was it divine? I won’t lie and tell you it was complete bliss, but soon in my stomach there strongly fluttered new butterflies from our first full-mouth kiss, and I sighed with every sweet word he uttered. He said, “Close your eyes” and then kissed both of my eyelids so tenderly how could I know if it were anything other than love and, madly, I wished he never would go. With eyes now wide open, I mirrored the touch of his hands like butterflies, wanting to trace my every feature. His eyes said so much as my hands caressed his own beautiful face! His mouth on my neck, his breath at my ear, his lips on my lips; I’d now tasted bliss! What a boy from Quebec had taught me was clear: Romance can take flight from a butterfly kiss.

One autumn day
You thought we were done
So sure that I would run
That we were over..
But if you'd open up your eyes
You'd quickly realize
We're not through
My heart is true
So just roll over..
Let me hold you in my arms
Kiss away fears and harms
Touch all that charms
Until you see
Girl, we were meant to be
You and me
We are the song
So sing along
As rainbow leaves
Fall from the trees
And the music plays..
One autumn day

Love is of Time

Because love is of time,
woven into the fabric where lovers dwell.
It measures caresses like floating wings from butterflies
and turns its clock hands with every melding kiss.
To be bound by a slow movement of a vanishing night,
when the moon is full and mouths dance across skin.
Time chains lovers to its moors,
anchored until the coming storm.
When flesh merges with flesh,
moved by passion,
driven by hunger, searching for a sanctuary.
As each chain is torn, a veil drops,
revealing captured fires that burn within.
Exposing a vulnerable heart, with all its scars,
now caught.
Leaving a flickering shadow, where lovers once lay,
to explore their dreams.
Before being washed away by time's moving sand,
that forever dwindles.
Because love is of time.

In Your Dreams

Was it all a sweet dream or just reality?,
  I sit and ponder that very thought,
During the daylight and in the nighttime,
  Wondering, were we ever there or not?

A crescent moon smiled down on me,
  Shedding it's white light upon the ground,
I sat amongst the petals, waiting patiently,
  And it was there, that me, you found.

Lavender flower petals I did pluck,
  As I was seated atop the green hillside,
Does he love me, or does he not?,
  My love for you, I could not hide.

I only saw you as a dark silhouette,
  A shadow that walked upon the ground,
Among silver stars and a midnight sky,
  Your gentle voice was the only sound.

My darkened silhouette was no longer alone,
  While yellow fireflies around me dance,
When you came to join me atop that hill,
  In the meadow's softly illuminated romance.

I was embraced within your arms,
  As your most tender kiss met mine,
On that one warm summer's night,
  When our kindred spirits did entwine.

So sad was I when the time came to part,
  As the rising sun shined golden upon my hair,
Although, what a beautiful dream it was,
  When I awoke and found you there.

One Day if I Could Spend The Night

One day, perhaps if I could spend the night, 
I would stack your hearth with firewood, and we 
would sit together on your couch, 
you, your feet tucked under you, 
your head against my chest, 
while I held you close and breathed
that faint and lovely fragrance of your hair.
And we could dine on pizza and red wine, 
in the softly glowing firelight. 
One day, perhaps, if I could spend the night. 

One day, perhaps if I could spend the night, 
there would be no haste, 
no urgency in either of our lives, 
and we could have another glass of wine, 
while speaking soberly 
of matters sombre, 
if we felt that way inclined. 
we would have that other glass of wine and laugh at matters impolite. 
One day, perhaps, if I could spend the night. 

One day, perhaps if I could spend the night, 
when we were ready we would go to bed 
and kiss 
and make unhurried love. 
Or, equally unhurried, we would not. 
And we would listen to the wind and rain 
and kiss 
and make unhurried love again. 
Or, equally unhurried, we would not. 
And we would sleep, egg and spoon, 
Each of us at peace. 
And everything, in both our worlds, would be just right. 
One day, 
if I could spend the night.

Heavenly Kiss

You flew to me from beyond the clouds
Sent to soothe my troubled heart
I felt the warmth of your kiss on my forehead 
In that moment my sadness blew away

Sent to soothe my troubled heart
You looked deep within my very soul
In that moment my sadness blew away
With your help I escaped the gray

You looked deep within my very soul
A breath of light into the darkness
With your help I escaped the gray
Your angel eyes looked into mine

A breath of light into the darkness
So much comfort yet no words spoken
Your angel eyes looked into mine
For me a glimpse of heaven's glory

So much comfort yet no words spoken
I felt the warmth of your kiss on my forehead
For me a glimpse of heaven's glory
You flew to me from beyond the clouds

LEAVING A KISS Shall I leave you a kiss? Kiss that flowers a love forevermore. Love that long been just figments of doubts but if it is you, I will plant my trust. Sweet tasty things be stirring in hush. Pathways twisted shall flourish as they uncoil. Readying a road for baby passion to freely swirl Emotions constellate shimmering rainbow bright Moonshine thrives magnifying fine wine delight If gnawing beastly storms seeps then enclose breaking to pieces the sky, the sea and our earth Bitter tears will spill flooding veins in dark haste slowly killing everything that grows But upon love kiss on lips of faith and hope a spark shall dwell cracking perpetual life banging the taunts twining pain and strife Resurrecting progress in blooms of green and red (c) OLive Eloisa 2:57pm September 09,2014

Blowing a Kiss to You

                                  Blowing a kiss to you as
                                       gently overtakes
                                         the rain, leaving 
                                           the inner works
                                            of thunderstorms.
                                             Inhaling and Exhaling
                                             Intimacy from
                                            Mother Earth.
                                          Among the palm of ones
                                        hand, the diminutive,
                                         and intellectual
                                             waltzes dauntlessly
                                               about the daystar.
                                                A sight,
                                                hence enthralling,
                                               stimulates and 
                                            formulates a
                                        meticulous remembrance,
                                     as one blows a kiss to you.

A Sparkling Star

Faraway ambassador of light distant dream sailing ocean waves
begging golden spear of destiny strikes midnight bells ring 

Spotlighting beautiful stunning to the eyes priceless gem 
diamond brightly sparks on a shining jewel treasure find

Mystery shades gasping warm breathless smiles tides turn flutters the heart
beating drum roars as the arrow strikes sexy moonlighting beauty

Hot flushes sweeping deeply skipping flames on magic dust
wishes warm touching inside the darkest night glowing thoughts 

Haunting full lips silver pearl whispers silently dancing tunes sing
blowing across deep sands echoes over oceans kissing paradise moonbeams
