Gentle Summer Rain Art

Featuring:)  Giorgio Veneto

She writes about Fall's beauty in the rain 
The falling raindrops' dance ascribing thence 
Bespoken verse that lightens her refrain 
before the time they met - her steps commence. 

She listens to the soft and rhythmic thrum, 
her love turned to escape and cloudy string 
Where nimbus mistletoe fell, tears to become 
Their kiss of Autumn was symbolic ring. 

The first light cotton mists with summer rays 
While skyward cheerful laughs adorn the land, 
their ceremonial dance diffuses grays, 
affectionate embrace, where dreams expand. 

Upon September's sky the raindrops gleam 
With half of hidden Sun to laugh and beam.

Enjoy the FRAGRANCE OF RAIN

A Summer Remembered - Sijo String

Sun stretched, far and wide, smoothes the beach, to find a place upon the sand
While it spreads a sheet, fastens lace, to all our summer skies
No day sees a wave so high, without thoughts of you or dreams renewed

Sun slept on the water's surface, rippled like heat, melting the glass
My head against your chest, could hear your heart, soften, after our swim
and I watched white seagulls fly, away to where the sky, blended to grey

Pages remain in old albums, but I see them so differently
It's clear, now as if photos, reveal sharper views, of what we didn't know 
Almost seems a better thing to face the unknown unprepared

Evening beckons my head to rest, ..old loves are lost with the sunset 
Summer was ours awhile, for just a day, like the seagull.....flies away
Tonight, all I hear are waves, to break the silence of the night

The Happiness Come And Go




          It is the glittery eyes of your
          that cause my heart to find nourishment

          You do not see my searching eyes
          Feels like I'm swimming in an ocean all alone

          Is there a formula for happiness - life's fragile tangents
          Let the roses live and let the thorns quietly die

          You are beautiful like a pearl in the oyster
          I was just a friend when you needed a shoulder to cry on

          I can read your divine and the powerful face
          My great love which was awakened by longing ... is dead

          Along with my thoughts I throw red the rose petals on the sea
          Is it the past or the future that cause the blood flowing

Love is a Lie

Love is a Lie by Poets contrived,
Since Dawn of Speech, and birth of Cry
The Will to Live- to take or give-
Oh, please, God! Just tell me why!

Of all the things I do deplore:
It is my Pain I most adore
With Danger flirt while courting Hurt-
But I keep going back for more!

I am Old yet barely grown-
(The truest Truth I've ever known!)
I cannot help- shan't save myself-
For Hearts hath Minds of their own...

I entered this piece in the "Love and Loss" contest which was judged on 1-25-14. I posted this poem to The Soup on Nov. 20th of 2013. It's one of my favorite pieces so I was disappointed not to place. Hope you enjoy, Nette :)

Yesterday

Yesterday

Yesterday I forgot the shade of your eyes
I struggled to remember your touch
Today I forgot the sound of your voice 
Each day I don't miss you so much
In the end you only brought me sorrow
I wonder what I won't remember tomorrow

YOU'RE UNFAITHFUL

Don 't walk out at that door 
I promise not to hurt you anymore 
I didn't mean to be a murderer 
All I want is to be your lover.


Let 's stay here inside our home 
When once love and lust we're shown 
Let 's do love in this king bed 
With petals of roses spread .


I thought you love my company 
But you 're loving me unfaithfully 
You 're keeping girls aside from me 
Seeing you with other gals happy. 


Now you 're happily seeing me dying 
That you got my flesh and everything 
This silly love is complicated 
I got you first underestimated.


Save this heart from anger and pain 
love me true, no more love game 
Baby don 't leave me like this 
This heart scattered into pieces.

Heart Broken Eternally

A sorrow sets in deep in the soul,
 To love and not be loved back,
 Is aa shattering agony deep within the soul spreading, 
 A poison that clenches at the soul,
 Forming a pact to never love again.
 But to let bitter hate control every day of your life.

Cold Hearted

Cold hearted

How could you be
So happy to see me leave?
How can you just act
So calm and collect 

What did i say
What did i do
For you to feel this way
The way that you do

How can you be so cold
So thoughtless
So cruel
Knowing of my feelings for you
Is it just a joke to you?

My heart breaks
My heart bleeds
With the pain
The shame
That you have thrown upon me

I’ll never know why
It was so fun for you
To make me cry
I will never understand
How you could be
So cold hearted and mean

Lovenom

Lovenom
Have you wondered how is that we fall in love?
Perhaps you though a disguise blessing from above?
I say this deception is distilled with in us.
Deep with in the dark of the soul and venomous.

It’s the poison of the heart; the hemlock of the soul.
It leaves our eyes blackened; a gun powder dull.
It’s the pulse in our veins; the cadence in our blood.
It’s the oxygen overdose that floods our lungs. 

It’s injected through our eyes in a moments glance
Infected like prey we'll never stand a chance.
We plagued our very hearts and minds with our own hands.
We plagued our souls and thoughts which we’ll never understand.

I’ve tried to unplug my heart and soul from this program
In attempt to see how addicted I really am.
But that only sucked the air out of my lungs
Which made me see the worst I’ve become. 

Dress me up in this poisonous disease of fancy.
Before you know it I’ll be dead and you’ll be happy.
Dress me up in this permanent imperfection.
As my heart will ache for a cure to this infection.

Gone again

He disappears again. Can't say that I'm surprised
I know he thinks when he comes home, that hell be chastised
But I won't say a word cause I'm all out breath
Sick from pacing round in circles like I'm high on meth

I know it's pointless to try to talk to you
So many promises, so little follow through
With words, there's no denying, you're the master
But what starts as hopefulness, ends in disaster

There's this place for you, I made inside of me
Cut a hole inside my heart where only you would be
Safe and protected, by my love so strong
I thought you'd never leave but baby, I was wrong

You walked away from me, you left so long ago
Now that part of me? It's dark and hollow
Tried to replace you but nothing fits the hole
Sometimes your body's here but it's missing the soul

And I've laid awake, so many nights that I lost count
You've taken so much, I lost track of the amount
All the times I needed you and you were absentee?
Why can't you go back to who you used to be?

But I can't change a man who never even was
The jokes on me. Clap clap, applause.
You fooled me once so shame on you
Fooled me 5000? Shame on me too.

And even as I write this rhyme
I know I'll never find the time
To tell you that I've had enough
To just get out, to pack your stuff

I know that when you do come back
You'll say you're sorry, you went off track
And then you'll string words one by one
Til I'm enchanted by the phrase you spun

I'll wear your lies like fine jewelry
And we'll both live blissful in foolery
