Desiree captured his soul
that mirrors into her past.
Luring eyes black as coal
peers deep into waters vast.

Her sleek mermaid contour
silhouettes in morning sun.
Glowing skin shines so pure
suits the silk that looks newly spun.

She stares beyond her reflection
that no one else can see.
Her eyes fix in sole direction
hair to the wind flies free.

Blossoms fill mist with sweet scent
dispersing her seductive essence.
Longs only for her lost gent
who filled her heart in adolescence.

Desiree; he whispers with the wind
pulling her ever close inside.
Her aching heart wishes to ascend
since she can never be his bride.

Spring Fever

from blossoms to bees
nectar drips from swollen lips
kissing the morning

like bottled air
clinging to nothing real,
except to slippery inside walls
of space

like heart chamber
holding on to first love
bouncing back and forth, side to side
then gone

like nerve feeling
continued ceaseless pain
until all feeling is dissolved
or cold

Woodland Rhapsody

A woodland path in the dappled sun- hushed and quiet
where I come free my breast and silently ponder.
I gaze upon a spiritual calm and listen to its quiet song
releasing tranquility of mind that does wander.

Between branches of towering mixture of spindly trees
encased in morning sunlight smoky haze;
I hear the rustle of hanging leaves falling gently as a sigh,
conceding tired mellow heart to praise.

In far distance echoes soft cries of lonesome blue jay,
quickly taunting squirrel gives harassing reply.
In shadows of bushy foliage, sunlight fails to cast
hides ground creatures that have come to spy.

A cool soothing breeze sweetly lulls an inward peace
capturing solitude within fractured soul.
Suddenly troubled trapped mind feels timely at ease
when moment seized a woodland stroll.

Mountain Lake Inspiration

Mountain Lake is my favorite place to write
under shade tree are my pencil, paper, and pole.
Scribble down words while waiting for a bite
fishing my most popular angling hole.

Fish are jumping all around hook and line
small cork sits still and does not move or fade.
Patiently I sit in wait for that fish to dine
beneath weeping willow of cool tree shade.

Inspiration overwhelms biding snare
while creative mind laggardly transcends.
In far distance I see lone grizzly bear
and leave a good fishing pole to his friends.

Hello Andrea Dietrich

Hello Andrea Dietrich, so we finally meet,
pull up a comfy chair and take a load off your feet.

Would you like a piece of this warm apple pie
and velvet black coffee to go with turkey on rye?

So glad you stopped in, though you cannot abide,
finish your free meal, I will walk you outside.

No need to thank me, have me over sometime,
if not for coffee, maybe for some catchy rhyme.

I enjoyed your company I hope you know,
you have a way with words, strokes like a Van Gogh.

Faint Thunder

lonesome faint thunder
whispers distant symphony
rain waltzes backstage

Another Hand

God touched another hand
as last breath slipped away.
Cradled a loved one’s head
as hearts began to pray. 

God whispered I love you
while angels near him stood.
Raised his soul to heaven 
cause He promised He would.

God granted his soul peace
from life of constant pain.
Freed body from struggles
and further family strain.

God allowed him to love
to know all life’s pleasure.
But God loves him more than
one can ever measure.

I Named Her Clair

Sharp pain sliced like a red rose thorn,
prior to church on Sunday morn.
It felt as though insides were torn,
when she was born, when she was born.

No time to wait, she did not care,
she wailed real loud then gasped for air.
Her twin inside, they could not spare.
I named her Clair, I named her Clair.

The tears inside me never dried,
I felt despair, that one had died.
To give them life, I really tried,
but still I cried, but still I cried.

Spring's Ravenous Kiss

                                     Dewdrops kiss flowery cups and grass shoots
                                               beetling from comatose roots.
                                                Sun smiles with lustrous rays    
                                                  encouraging poised winds
                                                         to blow redolent
                                                         arousing scents;
                                                               bug life
