Spring Dawn

             When the silky light teases, slowly filters
         through the land of drowsiness, gently rippling
               into ardent red allure, whispers linger
                            sweetly seductive.

A Spring Miracle

April's mist has filtered the early sunrise, Meadows spread their blankets of colored rainbows Newborn lambs have nestled in clover cradles, christened by dewdrops

AMBER PRINTS



Lady fair meandering verdant hillside
Tracing amber prints of a night that glimmers
With the vintage lace from a rosy springtime
Breathless her senses.

Veritable Love



                               Their passion  so unchecked--
                               He dried her tears
                               Before the sorrows struck

Bonded with Spring

In the meadow birds glide with feathered motion
Quiet wondrous eyes with a gentle freedom
Capture Spring's soft ambiance and lush promise
                 Bonded with beauty

Enticing romance

Springtime, yellow daffodils nodding  gaily
Tulips open like poppies in the sunshine
Plush grass sprouting creating luscious cover
Enticing romance

Sapphic

Holding Adonis In another place and another lifetime, gazing into eyes that gazed back with passion. Kissing you, loving you and how you touched me. Summer’s moon watched us. Are you in the world, my sweet lover? Are you? Have you gone the way of the gods before you? Blessed was I to hold you so closely. I was holding Adonis.

Sappho

Crimson lips, lovers awaken with a kiss
Creamy white skinned Goddesses resting
In a time where Socrates lusted after Sappho's 
Poetry and art.
 
The Grecian people worshiped her with
her beauty and exquisite prose. On the wings
of her art she played enchanting music arranged 
for immortality.

Golden chariots in fields of apples bold,
yet, solitary like one fallen from the tree, 
Sappho wrote her memoirs and music
while exiled, her death unspoken.

springtime flowers

  
deep and dreamy, whispering, calling softly falling teardrops, memories, sadly floating hearing mother murmuring from the garden talking to flowers ___________________________ March 26, 2015 Sapphic Stanza For the contest, Sapphic Stanza, sponsor Craig Cornish First Place

Enter, June

Enter, June; I’m filled with anticipation. Flutter in on me! Like a lovely lark, come trilling. Weariness has been long time on my shoulders. Come thrill me! Bring with you the moon and your passion. Yes, the lovers’ moon that poets so often sing of. Winter brought me nothing but dreariness. I need to be glowing. Hurry, June, and bring very soon the summer’s sun, for spring has been endless rain upon my pane. Dispel the gloom! Please appear, dear June, and warmly embrace me.

Beauty Of Nature : alliteration

Gazelles grazing gaily on golden green grass
Glaciers glittering gold like gleaming glass
Gardens glowing with Gulmohur and Gold stars
Golden gifts of God.

Still Night

Still night, calm night, night ever quiet, peaceful,
Be thou always here when the day is over;
Restful, silent, filled with the fallen dewdrops,
Gleaming in moonlight.

Still night, calm night, graced with a starry frescoe--
Virgin, Hunter, Pleiades, cross of sorrow--
Keep thy tales forever as softly fettered,
Gleaming in starlight.

Creatures of the Night

Chanting witches brewing their magic potions,
Howling werewolves hoping to feed on humans,
Vampires drinking blood as the moon is shining:
Forces of Darkness.

Night


Sunset slipping behind the  blazing hillside
Curtain falling down on the dying daylight
Purple twilight drowning in streams of blackness
Beneath the moonlight.

on the horizon

Sunset painting velvety sky at nighttide
tones of red clouds shimmering above mountains
trace the downward spiral of wafting sunset 
replaced with darkness

Summer Nights

Drifting darkly, memories swirling upward
snarled in spiders' frightfully webs spun, hoping
peace comes soon with fierceness. Her anti-venom
saves me from bug bites.

Spring in the quiet wood

The wood in spring quietly awaits sunlight
Wake up, wake up insists mother nature
End your gentle slumbering, winter has gone
Show us your beauty

In the Realm of Luna

Shadows softly creep in the realm of Luna. Twilight gleams; the goddess appears in glory after Sun has sunk into mountains’ valley. Peacefulness gathers. . . . Clouds disperse; the queen’s entourage comes twinkling. All the stars are equal in Luna’s heaven. Even those that fall from the sky are wished on. Dreams light their kingdom.

Diamond sky

 
      Fading light of golden sun leaves the sky in
  flames of bright red, soon  sun  sinks,  moon then rises,
    Rules the night as lights glitter  while stars blaze on
                 beautiful diamonds
                               ~~

dancing icy underfoot crackle pathways
moonlight loves the feminine presence prescience
laughter singing prayerful chants of thank you
ritual nurture

Trochee, Trochee

Falling drifting leaves by the wind blown around
Crashing rolling waves the sound sighing echoes
Sadness hollow winter comes whipping nature
Chilling the ground solid

Impatient Lover



                                          IMPATIENT LOVER

                                    Rise up my love from rowdy camaraderie of friends
                                    longing am I for your rich
                                                                            Embrace 
                                    Following the shepherd’s path
                                                                            I pause.

                                   Humming the tune of the morning dove who
                                       Celebrates the creation that is your
                                                                    Beloved smile.

                                        Scented with honeysuckle is my hair
                                     glistening in harmony with the almond 
                                        oil anointed on my skin.

                                      Leave me here alone no more.
                                      Cold grows the night, my love.
                           Howling are the wolves, scratching at the door.
                                 Join me in our moonlit home that crowns the hills.

                            Whistle, alert your lean strong hounds.
                           Bounding they will follow you home
                                Encircling us in safety for this
                                      our night of perpetual joy
                          where, as pups bay moon-dazzled,
                                   Together we will dream

                            
                          With you each breath blossoms--exhaling date sweet joy,
                            Rise up to meet my craving,
                                 Forget the servant standing silent at the door--                                     
                                                     linger but a moment--
                          Thrilled and a-tingling 
                           I await our heaven-passioned joy.

                                     Entrapped forever by the breezes
                                                 good and ill     
                              Dancing in ecstasy we are feathers on the wind.

                                Twirling in sync as 
                                  each precious breath
                                      magnifies delight.
