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

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.

Moonlit Growth

 

Weaving moonlit cords of poetic magic
Hina laces emerald beads of nature
Softly stroking slumbering roots to wake now
        Spring is arriving

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.

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

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.

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

Veritable Love



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

Becoming Spring

     Winter’s newborn fusses in blustered billows;
Colicked thunder rumbles from tantrumed lightning.      
    Blossoms nursing heavenward – April showers.
                  Christened is springtime

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.

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.

Night


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

Run for the Roses

Three long years pass and now the trumpeter Sounds
As doth the hopefuls tread out upon the track 
Dreams of tomorrow now kindle in the dirt.

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.

PERFECT BLEND



Orange pekoe steeps in an heirloom teapot
Novel open, feet on a velvet hassock
Charcoal skyline saturates shore and rooftop . . .

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.

My Dear Friend

Just like old times there's her familiar features
Peeking shyly up from the snow-clad earth,
Hair adorned with circlet of dainty flowers.
Beautiful Springtime.

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
