Midnight In Summer Fjord - For Anne-Lisse

Against a backdrop of dark waters you stand
Behold a viking lady in beauty arrayed
Caught within silver rays caressing
Down by the water your temple is shining
Ever you wait for love's sweet caress
Forever hearing his voice in waters deep
Gone the love you used to hold so close
Here in night light a golden maiden sings
In this Fjord of love a long boat shall arise
Justice once more Olaf lives again
Killed in foreign lands he comes to you in dreams
Life given for your moments of passion
Moments of joy when love unfolds
Now you are held in the arms of your viking lord
Open up the gates to Valhallah as you smile
Perform the dance of love as your heart sings
Quest for the desires that lie hidden deep in your heart
Remember the glory when you were together 
Summer Fjord held in your heart by moonlight

(Fjord's Dreams.)

The Earth dry and bare; waiting eagerly for the drops of care;

Caught in the hot, steaming summer’s snare;

The flowers and creepers decorating window sills; all look desolate and ill;

As the nature withers away in the sun’s merciless glare.


The men and the wives; the kids and the wild;

All are enduring the summer’s waterless exile;

They are waiting for the rain; to relieve them of the heat pain;

And of that life which has become a sweaty turmoil.


The wind strong and gusty; makes the roads yellow and dusty;

And the air around becomes suffocating and musty;

The birds forget to sing; their lilting, musical thing;

Even as the tree leaves wristle and make noise so husky.


Then come the Monsoon showers; falling first on boughs and flowers;

Making the trees and plants glisten and glower;

So the monsoon comes in grace; driving away summer’s trace;

Lashing at window-panes with its all-reigning power.


As the monsoon drives away the summer heat; with its raining rhythm off-beat;

And the flower buds open up to return it’s greet;

And as the water seeps in soil; a refreshing fragrance arise;

While the rain continuous to cool down hot gardens and streets.


The Earth grows green; and water droplets gleam;

On the smooth, waxy surfaces of the leaves;

Everywhere the flowers grow; in pink, red, white or yellow;

While buds make their way blushingly between tendrils.

 The wet and soft soil; now grows fertile;

And tender green plantlets push through the Earth in style;

Through soil the tiny saplings peep; as their sown seeds begin to reap;

And the plants and crops shake off the Earth’s temporary curse sterile.


As the raindrops go pitter-patter; water in puddles begins to gather;

And the little birds begin to chirp, twitter and chatter;

The insects begin to hum along; their irritating and happy song;

While due to rain and wind the roofs on houses begin to chatter.


As the showers for some moments cease; after giving Earth life’s new lease;

And the pitter-patter of rain is gently appeased;

The sun coyly shines; a cloud it half hides behind;

While the fluffy clouds move along with the cool breeze.


The fields now green and bright; are an artist’s sheer delight;

Pleasing to the senses of smell and sight;

The fresh air so sweet to breathe; that with pleasure the body writhes;

In the newly born rainy sunlight.


But this sunlight so quickly goes; as thunderstorms blow to and fro;

And Earth engulfs in darkness that now grows;

The wind rises and howls; with a voice that trembles all souls;

And day and night this gale roars.


The trees in fear tremble and shake; as leaves, twigs and branches break;

And the life of these trees is put up at stake;

Birds in nests cower with fright; and due to cold shiver with all their might;

And live in fearful anticipation of what else the storm may rake.

The monsoon now shows its ugly face; gone are its days of grace;

Rainy calamities take its place;

Cyclones and floods destruct worldwide; the raging sea throws up its tide;

“Nature reigns supreme”, we are forced to say.


Same is the life of man; may he do what he can;

But destiny will always play a hand;

What all will man control? So he should let destiny play its role;

And enjoy life and act as the situation will demand.


Somedays will shine the sun; those days life will be fun;

And work will be successful how much ever it’s done;

Somedays by the fun you will tire; and will long to get back into the attire;

Of normal life, however boring or glum.


Sometimes hope will come out; like a tiny plant sprouts;

And will remove from your mind every shade of doubt;

It will be a bright, hopeful ray; but for long it may not stay;

So we must make most of it when hope sprouts.


Just as the shower of joy; after summer comes out shy;

So shower of success will come when you have almost given up the try;

It will wash away your helpless sigh; and will give you a new will to try;

Which will help you succeed by-and-by.


Just as the sun goes behind the cloud; when thunder is heard aloud;

And darkness suddenly falls on Earth all around;

So also failure will touch you once; its upto you to prevent its repeated occurrence;

Or due to failure remain depression bound.


Sometimes through demotivation you will go; sometimes loads of success you'll know;

For we need all types of experience to make us grow;

Like some days it is wet; some days the sun for long doesn’t set;

But then it needs both the rain and the sun to make a RAINBOW…

A Shady Tree

I know its the summer time because of how naturally 
Your beauty compliments the caress of a summer breeze
As I watch the world from beneath a shady tree
I take in the delightful comfort of everything I see
But in the same breath I am holding up my hands
Lord will you please give me back the things I no longer have
They are even more a part of me now that they are gone 
As the sun falls below where the horizon is still holding on
Somewhere between the falling light and a star lit night
Is a dream that last forever and will never say goodbye
As the wind gently blows through the brush and shakes the leaves
It begins to hum a melody that I want to sing
At that very moment I smile for all the joy I have
Its so uplifting for me to see melancholy dance
Soon the morning sun will rise and capture my eyes
As I watch the hand of God paint a brand new sky
With every stroke of color I swallow all my pride
And I find a new place to dream of endless times
If I should ever get to the place I left my broken heart
Only then will I believe this brand new day will start
Again Im reminded of why my heart beats so restlessly
Only the speed of thought and my soul beneath this tree

Home is Where the Ocean Is

Summer is here once again.
The breeze is warm,
I smell salt on the wind.
The same sandy beach between my toes,
The same waters I learned to swim.
Sun burn on my nose,
To the Ocean I dive in.
I submerse myself in the waters of the Atlantic
Warmer than the West Coast Thankfully
Cold, I simply cannot handle it!
Further out I paddle faithfully,
For my mother ocean to keep me sane,
this is my therapy,
to soothe this migraine.
This place gives me energy,
a weakness with a name.
Pleasure Island, NC.
A place hidden with fortunes
and undiscovered fame.
Never could I stray from the ocean
my passions would never be fulfilled
and I would never be the same.

Dedicated to my Dad on Father's Day 2013
The man who introduced me to the ocean and educated me about it and gave me reason to love appreciate and respect it.

Autumn entices a   lavish trail
Brilliant her  painted float through nippy air,
Cruising along near winter hills
Draped by amber, tangerine  prints
Each with mixed tinges from her shade,
Fragrant as lavender perfume.

Gaily, children with trimmed baskets
Huddle along rows of colored flowers...
Into the lea, small arms gather
Jasmines and thistles to bring home
Keeping some for merry-go- rounds;
Long after cool noontime is done.

More  bounty twirls on violet edges, yet
Not one dares to ruffle the charm
Of a harvest, turning into rosette- mauve,
Playing through  hours when youngsters hop
Quite briskly, for more  peek-a-boos
Resting awhile... humming away.

Suddenly, Mom calls from afar
That echoes of floral gaiety's  end,
Until amber petals wave goodbye
Vanishing... as toes strut down
While Autumn reels then flings a gift;
Xenias fluttering on woven trays
Yellow -orange like November's hue;
Zestful, kids cheer...tomorrow again!

Summer is here


Summer is here 
beautiful sun blazing down upon us 
sweat dripping endlessly 
soothing Summer breezes crawling up our legs 
Summer is here

Sizzling sound of hot dogs and burgers on the grill
children screaming with joy, chanting
Summer is here 

Dogs playing fetch in the deep green grass 
Moms and Dads laughing till tears come down there cheeks
Parents saying its Family time 
in the meadows leaves swaying with there smiling edges 
Finally Summer is here

An Ode to my friends

communication from above the air 
random as it doesnt compare 
the meet of peoples taste
so many exceptions, unknown where it leads
but a friend can call on formiddible times
can suprize and place you up there 
on that higher ground
where we all belong
they can be the calling we need
the lift that stands
the love we crave 
we all meet at random places
or odd situations 
we have the best times
the moments we never forget
the memories we look back years later
and just smile 
thankful we had the time 
and wish we had all over 
again and again 
always repeat those days 
those conversations 
the real deep and meaningfuls 
for what time we may have these tresured lives 
that we share 
may not be for long
but id never let go of those times
they made me who i am 
the path i walked on 
i might not see them all the time 
but i do think about them 
how i smile from to ear to ear 
money cant buy that
no one can replace that 
so with age comes being wise.. at times 
and its those days that we had 
makes life abit easier to live 
they keep us going 
and we never forgot them

It was getting dark.
The silence starts speaking
to me in a whisper
for the sake of secrecy.

Right now, 
the violence will start
between the summer night
and a brilliant moon.
I sit in a corner
to watch the milk spilling.

And then, after couple of hours
an anonymous call from
a cuckoo in distress. Somewhere
a dry twig snaps off. Something 
is tossed in air. A shadow pokes
at moon to return the favour.

The dawn, drops the veil !

It's summer time again.
Let it rain
Over me, 
And shine over me.
It's another may,
On sunny day,
Lying on the beach.
Seeing others march. 
Then i see a dream walking in a meter.
Her beauty is moot, 
It lift my feet, 
Finding myseft on kneed,
On the ground with need.
Instantly, she print her photo,
In my mind and heart like a tatto.
I called her to play,
That she obey.
Before the ends,
We were friends.
Then we exchange number,
Her alluring beauty i remember,
When walking in the rain,
Through the hurricane.
Wishing my luck
To be in love.
In the early
Of this worldly,
Nothing to delay
Seeing the brightest ray
Shining pray
Taking the journey
Becuase you worthy,
The way may be rough,
Nothing to rush.
I don't mind what they say.
My love is here to stay.
I love you,
Believe it's true.
Then you knew
Love is sweet when new.
I'm giving you my heart,
Please don't tear it apart.
It will leave only pain,
In my brain.
Please return
My love don't leave alone.

When the moon goes down
And the sun peeps up
The night breeze welcomes
When the cups are ready for tea
And the kids are ready to play
The sun sets for a rest
And the evening passes west
When the souls are to rest
In the dark deep blue sky
The stars lit the lanterns
So it is night

Summer Sunset

Summer sunset in the West,
Is among one of the best
That I was lucky enough to see,
As I walked along leisurely
And when the colors faded away,
It was a lovely end to a great day

A Fun Summer Day


Tick tock, click clock
Time moves on fast
I'm feeling goofy in front of you
I'm just having a blast
I was feeling ill
Now I'm back up
I just took a pill
Grab some drinks and laugh it up
Feel like moving fast to pass by the day
No time to wait, cannot anticipate
What I'll do next like having a party
Gotta move fast 
 this party can't start without me
Have a few friends over and have some drinks
Tick tock, click clock,  better swig those drinks
Trying to hurry up before the day is over
Gotta clean up even if I'm not sober
It's my lucky day feeling like a four leaf clover
Got all the luck I need
I don't feel an age older
Well, the sun is going down and the day is done
We all go home alone after a day of fun
Good night to all and let's have a blast
We do the same tomorrow
It's not too much to ask

Summer Fun

Summmer Fun is when you have fun,
When girls put their hair in pony tails and buns                                                              You will play and play with their hearts pitter patter 
til there hearts spatter
People start to get moody  because of the heat
So you better look out before you get beats
Baby start to weep 
Then sleep they start to get their sweaties bodies a shower 
While the moms smell flowers
Its still daylight but soon it will be mid
And knowone will be in sight

Dance City Street Lights

A baby's basket
bounced two-times two.
Circled chimed towers ring
downtown beep-bop to the rhythm.
Enjoy the music; birds
fly over docks. It's the busy bouncing
great city street lights that 
hit the road, shimmer in the dark.
I enjoy watching you dance to the music,
June. The jungle summer parties
kaput from hard rain last summer and were
laden with children screaming
"Mommy, I can't find you."
Nothing stops your dancing. You're
oblivious unless the music stops. I 
pace the streets of the city's heart and
quadruple the center of the streets core, two-times-ten
ready to run, run when I know it's your 
sassy sway from side to side 'till you 
turn in his arms, a fall light as yogurt. It's
undeniable that this baby's basket can bounce, bounce, bounce, so
vulnerable to the splitting of the wood and the crying of the child's
watery mucus clogs her throat and all you hear is wah, wah, wah when
Xenon cries, like cheese cloth dipped in chocolate; hard to hear the
yelling when all you comprehend are feet tapping and music moving all around like
zig, zag, zook until you collapse, cause all you knew was dance, dance, dance.

Sitting on the hill,
nestled against the moon,
talking to stars.

You love a woodpecker.
What a stupid thing.
A panther dies of thirst.

A tall fern unfurls
the frond, to catch
a crested iguana.

In deep blue water
seventeen summers 
drowned, in one go.

A sapsucker goes
on, making holes,
in my psyche.

A tree will wait
for the summer to end.
Then it will tow the rain.

Rhymes Of Thanksgiving

A beautiful scenic autumn day

Birds fly south to escape the winter

Courtesy guiding us through Thanksgiving prayers

Dinner lovingly prepared by your favorite relatives

Excellent days of walking and the leaves turning colours

Fresh crisp air breathing in and out and enjoying God's blessings

Gardens of beauty with roses of red and pink and yellow and white

Houses elegant and refined and apartments of all shapes and sizes

Islands of humanity kind and benevolent and friendly and caring

Jays singing their song amidst the tall pine trees

King and Queen regally visiting our country and blessing us all

Loving and caring relatives who come and visit us on these special holidays

Majestic nature forever a good companion and friend

New clothes the shades of autumn complimenting humanity

Ovation and encore for autumn's majesty and miracles

Pioneers of the past remembered and a cornucopia of thanks

Quests for true happiness and real thanksgiving

Religious prayers and churches and a sacred blessing from God

Sounds of Thanksgiving where families are gathered in celebration

Universally aknowledged togetherness and friendship

Vivacious and lively days and nights, sacred and honourable

Weather varied warm and cool and pleasant and unpleasant

Xtra days of summer the Indian days of summer guest

Yesterdays' memories and todays' living experiences

Zealous and progressive and tunes of autummn songs well sung

Summer Fever

As I sit, staring out the window
'Bring back the sun' rings in my ear;
Constantly echoing in my mind,
destroying me like a switchblade;
Eating me from inside
feverish, I long for Summer

Summer Darling

As the golden rays
touches the Goddess skin,
The shimmers of the
universe glows with in.

As each strand of hair
plays along the wind
sun strokes with flair
on it's pretty shine.

I'ts the summer you gotta love,
show what you got
and flaunt what you have.

Feel the heat and be who you are
season is over before you know it.
Let the warmth  sit still 
in your heart when summer ends.
Feel everything because 
you are a summer darling.

Like a school boy who turned red as the little girl batted her eyes,
   like puppy love at summer camp two weeks was like a life time,
       like a snow cone on a hot summer day... melting down the sides,
            38 yrs.old, time chiseled yet you bring out the sissy no one can find.
A smile as wide as a 9 yr.old on Christmas morning,
    a laugh as heart felt as a little baby or a child at three, 
          like the early bird eager to raise and to perch and sing, 
               after all you still love to see that sissy smile you bring me,
to buy roses not any ones the ones that I now will make you smile
           to sit and write you a poem of love and forever
                 to dress to impress you even for just awhile
                      no one would even think this of me... a sissy never 
no one knows no one can see,
    you make me fill like a young kid,
         to hold your soft hand is to be free,
             look can you see?heres that sissy I hid.
as life washes over me,
   as it rains problems we all have,
      by my side looking waiting to see,
           that sissy... and it makes you glad,
my heart is you,
   my world ... I see,
      in your eyes of blue, 
           that sissy you see in me,
my valentine,
   you are to me,
        my every thing, 
            love your sissy.

summer rain

i lie down in the road
 no one around 
looking at the sky
 fluffy gray clouds fill my eyes
 i'm waiting
 i hear thunder in the distance 
its getting closer
 the wind picks up
 nice breeze flowing over me
 something cool and moist hits my cheek
 finally its here
 drops of water fall from heaven
 i close my eyes
 slightly cracking my lips
 just enough to taste the water in my mouth
 it starts pouring down
 my body cooling off 
from the summer heat
 im at peace
 listening to the sound of the rain
 rush down the sidewalk
 i smile and think to myself
 how i love summer rain

Summer Heat

The days of summer are now here,
Oh how I've waited for it to appear
I love the suns warming heat,
It's such a long awaited for treat
Picnics and barbecues are so much fun,
Especially when shared with a special one
Will this finally be my summer for love,
The one that I've forever dreamed of?

Summer love

I feel secure whenever i'm around you
Don't know what to say or to do
When i'm with you I never feel shy
I know our love is so high it could reach the sky
Always catch myself thinking about you
There's no one else cause my heart's set on you
In our bed together we lie
Knowing you will be there when i open my eye
Baby, you do something to me that i can't explain
Being with you is what keeps me sane
I give my heart, body, and soul to you
In my eyes no one compares to you
When i'm not with you i miss you like crazy
No guy in this world can phase me
Everyday I thank the Lord for you cause I feel so Blessed
Us being together was His plan cause He knows whats best
You make my heart sing
Cause you treat me like a queen, my king
You're the reason I believe in love
And you're the answer to my prayers from up above

Tempers fly as the traffic slows down
Pale white skin nature turns brown
Bikini wearing women catch the men's look
Sitting on a beach towel reading a book
Some girl screams so you take a look
Oh no! I forgot the sun block I burn fast
But better enjoy the summer while it last
Soon fall comes, the cool begins
I am already looking forward to next summer, see you then
