Bed of Roses

The love
you've sown within
the heart and soul of me
grows like a lush summer garden
and I am filled with your tender beauty
I gather roses in the sun
and offer you bouquets
on petals sweet
we lie

Purring contentedly just being with my love and basking in the afterglow of our ascent to the peak of pleasure, I now settle, spent and cozy, in the crook of his arm like a kitty - purring.

Drum beat

Drum beat
  The sound of hearts
Beating to love's smooth rhythm
Sometimes a  brokenhearted  tune
  Hoping for another chance at love's oft
 Moody melodic emotions
That dance upon  lyrics,  
   The beat goes on...
  Drum beat

A Good Factor

The things
we do come back
in three fold I am told
Hold this knowledge close to your heart
so what you choose to do unto others
is done with kindness, care and love
and in the end good will
come back to you
times three.

I Rise

I rise
to catch the day,
Many weep to cuddle.
I rise to the super blessings- 
Those ones that parade around vivid earth,
The rooted crust and resources.
I rise to the rainbow-
Arch of colours

Angels are all around they can be anything holding your hand when life looks glum when feeling as though you want to give up Many things changed when you passed on alone, scared by myself I will be your Angel
By P.D~
Angels are among us~ walking side by side! Giving us strength to believe in. As the day draws close my breath is overwhelmed by beauty. The beauty I find divine when it comes to our friendship'' I open my mind to the flight of your wings. The fascinating way your innocence sings. Hopefully you are that angle I lay my trust in too..

I'm a 9 Revised

                         You bring me peace
                    With your head on my lap
                 I gently stroke your wavy hair
            Lovingly I bend to kiss your forehead
                Thanking God for giving me you
                    You have become my calm
                            My loyal friend

Your tongue
spoke of constellations,
an unlicked sky gripping secrets
nonetheless, that mouth spat it's majesty
without ever stirring the air 
proving no white stardust
really adorns
your tongue

The Ghost Town

It was
a dalliance
this bucolic lost town,
just ephemeral my visit,
petrichor scents of fresh rain, just fallen,
birds songs a harbinger of me,
oh serendipity,

I feel
the erstwhile past
in the vacant buildings,
the sadness an epiphany,
beyond nature calls my propinquity
but I stay and stroll empty streets,
redolent with flowers,
this demesne lost
in time.

Lady of the manor

Her eyes reminded me of erstwhile redolent efflorescence petrichor scents. We walked in the demesne of her manor lost in bucolic elegance. Yearning propinquity like a drunk I followed. Until rain descended, a harbinger of doom. It was never a dalliance but an ephemeral epiphany. Like natures serendipity, all is temporary. This town of love now gone.

A Day In Pergamon

A Day In Pergamon

at Pergamon
stirred an epiphany.
The Aqueducts, Acropolis,
propinquity, Temple Dionysus,
Trajan Temple, all so magnificent.
Persian, Greek and Roman wonders;
some standing, most lying...
erstwhile kingdoms,
all gone.

I viewed
and imagined
robust efflorescence
that once filled this bucolic place.
Dalliance here, much too ephemeral.
Damp ruins, yellow soil stirred petrichor.
Wild grass, broken art; redolent
grave serendipity...
of loss.

The Winters
Cool caress gone.
In memories of snow
I remember my Love of you.
Diamonds falling from a soft gray sky.
A virgin wonderland was there.
We sat warm by the fire
As winter sang,
Our Winter.

Now Spring,
How it does sing.
New life is born again.
From Winter's rest much comes to life.
The joy of our heart's desiring does sing
Into the coming of Springs' fire. 
Kaleidoscopic colours
they are displayed,
Spring sings.

Fathom Yourself

Shed your old self
Let isolation back
Restart a new way of living 
Release the grudge feelings that haunt your mind
Be kind to you, don't belittle
Give thanks for a new day 
Don't waste your time

A Fair Warning

How deep
this pain and fear
runs through my aching heart
as I weep tears for flesh and blood
bruised by a life that is often unkind
my anger feeds on acid thoughts
as I prepare to crush
what has threatened
my world

and step lightly
for I am on your heels
know that you will fall by my hand
I will not rest until I destroy you
and I am sure all that I love
is safely out of reach
from your evil

One Dark Moment

I am  
lost in my mind
steeped in dark emotion.
Shadows block the light from my eyes
and all I see is the blackness of pain
which holds my heart captive again.
Swift flow my silver tears
and burn my skin
in trails.

Petty particle of Dust enters a cauldron Of light and a great star is born. Petty seeded gravel enters A shell and outcome is we are endowed with pearl. Mother butterfly lays eggs out pops caterpillar Makes a shell, it cracks, parts divide The caterpillar is now gone. As when the shell opens a butterfly comes out. A few drops of semen a child conceived and born eternity of life goes on. All the beginnings are petty The endings marvelous HIS all special Marvels.

Our Love Ascends to Heaven

Heaven awaits til our last waltz amongst the wind, mimicking that of yesterdays...(Sigh) Nature applauds as we continue in harmony; never ceasing til the last tear. Dust we form... transcending to Heaven
