- Soft Swan Wings -

You are a jeweled gift sparkling diamond rock temple 
One of thousand in the world touched petal by petal 

Skies above true blue wrapped cotton white emotions 
Arches over our earthly plains east to west one circle 

Inside silk ribbon feelings tie the knot perfectly 
With wings of a swan bound unto you eternally

In you who crowns the heart with passions ignite magic 
When the sky was falling into the promised land chants 

Carnation of a flower deeply stirring dewdrops rose 
In light of the rainbow mountains shone glitter dust

Loving you morning and night never goes out of fashion 
Amor helped to ignite flames that burn purely with love

- Break Not A Flower Nor Inscribe A Stone -




I feel it so strongly deep inside the cry of your heart
It but echoes my souls endless fear of being apart 

Use your strength to go on with life even though it is hard
Where is life’s joy when treated with such reckless disregard?

I wonder can I ever free you from this endless pain?
My body and soul are laden with such cold heavy chain

Lead me through the maze of your mind, let me break down the wall
The donjon has been built of adamant and shall not fall!
 
I will rend the dark veil and bright starlight will fill your soul 
The battlements long secure crumble, your love makes me whole!

- A Bird Sings Only When It Is Happy -

A white dove flies gracefully across vision
Shines as transparent pieces of ivory joy

I give you a Candle of Love, for inspire and encourage you
Blown gently upon a soft warm lovely breeze 

Falling slowly like a ripe apple 
With sad confusion, I promise you heaven

Everything will fall into place and gives you, perfect pleasure of life
Love whispering on wings fluttering deep

It is possible to change your tomorrow, if you seek your dream today
To watch the light change i pray for your beauty to return

My arms are full of flowers, the beauty the unfathomable grace
Reborn under a promise of color inside the mist bouquet dream

Blossoms and Bubbles

     In a magical forest among the purple ice plants
     the queen fairy floats by inside a bubble and chants

     "Come to me all fairy lights and play softly among your flutes"
     hundreds of fairies fly to her in a great multitude they swoop

     Soft music from the fairies make the flowers start to sway 
     bending low and high reaching for the sky they splay

     The flowers bouncing each bubble with a fairy inside 
     giving each a beautiful and peaceful joy ride.

My Favorite Flower---Dandelion

Glads and the lilies that grow very tall
Petunia and pansies...I do love them all

My favorites, however, are not really owned
Not found in the garden, but growing alone

Kissed by the sun and tossed by the breeze
Running through clover or wherever they please

Not planned, unintended, still they remain
Untouched by the hoe and watered by rain

Favorites of mine, I picked as a child
These flowers ignored, were born to be wild

The Great Web:

Little bright coloured flowers flowing everywhere, I don't know their names but their aroma fills the air. Softly swaying as they bend in the summer's breeze, How I love them so because I'm easy to please. Life itself is often missed in a blink of the eye, Not many take the time to even question why. Life is never wasted but one may feel antique, When the greatest gift is life itself that we must seek. And for all that is alive shall also pass on by, The journey of the two is like the light and dark sky. As all things are connected in the invisible great web, Life can be seen as the inward tide and death as the ebb. I'm certain when this life ends another shall manifest, Until that day comes give me strength and give me zest.

Blossoms And Bubbles

As I entered the garden the scents enticed
rampant rose blossom the arches fenced.

Cascading aromatic blossoms greeting me
amidst the climbers were the sweet pea.

In the centre stood the patio so glamorous
sparkling bubbles of champagne  so amorous.

Tickling the throat buds saturated with scent
from the tumbling blossoms as they descent.

Blood stream and breath full of roiling bubbles
and past swish the gentry parading in couples.

Raise your glasses in a toast as friends are wed
laughing, knowing they will all too soon be in bed.

Ah what a perfect day in this romantic garden
bubbles and blossoms tumbling as skies darken

Blossoms and bubbles never somniferous
mixed together they are becoming toxiferous.

Growing With Love Always

Spring menu of snowdrops, daffodils, dandelion, crocus and anemones
Each color blossoms the beauty swaying inside a breeze dancing thoughts

The image of spring changed colors roaring never thought my heart might burst
Within waves blowing kisses warmly touching the chambers endless bliss

The moment the sun draws the mist from the sea to the skies feels magical
Your footprints on deep sands fluttering wings of an angel beaming sunshine

Under the wing of an angel you will find safety, happiness and beauty
held within a gasping breath your love true and complete beautiful

Lost In Love

Holding you inside one fragile beautiful flower blossoming dream
Sweet you are my love painting words breathtaking within all wishes

Silvery streak of moonlight shimmering a star 
only now I read between the lines trailing thoughts 

How can you ask someone to stop loving without care 
an impossible task even for the hardest of hearts  

If I were the last person on this planet sunshine through clouds 
that's how it draws to me you're asking me not to love you 

Misery likes company cuts deeper than a knife wounds beauty
never was the answer to love in our friendships face

- A Little Bit Of Heaven -

Such a romantic place on a beach in Monte Carlo 
Simple little things in life catching one's breath 

Moonlight glinting of waves breaking off a white sandy beach 
Faraway thoughts brown eyes crying in an ocean dream song 

Spell of romance makes one forget the sense of anything 
Silent whispers echoes binding our chain together tides speak 

Do you remember the white doves that followed us along the beaches 
Each link in your arm magic walks closer feelings sing inside a joyous choir enchants

Nature nurtured by the desire to fulfill dreams makes time stop 
Holds deep sea emotions a galloping white steed races home in warm waves kiss 

The natures mesmerizing perfume of fragrant flowers 
Where destiny paints the joy in butterflies dance on a warm loving breeze 

Such is the passion in the depths of ones soul 
Jewels needle vision flies without wings heaven sings in a spiral coloring rainbows 

No barriers closed no reasons withstand 
The midnight moon shades blue embraced one shadow two become one dream

Valentino

Temptation pulls us all into sin with gravity force
Wading in with human desires sweet sugar coating gloss
 
Strengths are nurtured and grown from our creator's breath of light
Filtering through densely chaotic thoughts stony cold walls
 
Snowdrops open their blossoms stretching a smile to your spring
Sprouting faith, hope, love and luck from a four-leaf white clover
 
Daffodils dance with a twirl around a twilight star breeze
Floating around magical melodies of twin flames spark
 
Shimmering dusk and dawn of your soul commanding presence
Soaring light chestnut brown kestrel swooping down in hunger
 
Low down in the horizon gracious mother of the rose
Sweet pleasant fragrance sets sail on the bitter winds of change
 
Queen of the evening sky you stand out a beautiful face
Radiating happiness amidst the flurries of rain

I am a Daffodil

What flower am I?


I represent my country which I love,
Springtime and I go hand in glove.

To see me makes everyone smile,
I grow in every garden can see me for miles.

My vibrant colour yellow and bright,
I blow my own trumpet, Cos I know I am right .

If cut I don't last,  just a day or so,
So please in your garden let me grow.

My scent is not noted as a perfume,
Yet a tub of me fills up a room.

On March 1st my significance will be on a high scale,
When I am worn in the lapel, of everyone, from Wales

I am a daffodil, I herald in springtime
Growing straight, proud, cos it's forgiving time.

Meaning of Daffodils.
Give daffodils to someone when as a token of forgiveness or give them away as a token of appreciation for their honesty.

Floral expanse

Floral expanse




Roses in vivid colours that smiled in glamour,
Red blood to be garlanded at valour,

White lilies bunching hearty and serene,
Catching lovers' fancy to the extreme,

Lavenders at the crest of mountains,
Challenging beauties of the terrains,

Merrigolds shining bright with sunrise,
Worshipping aroma to no surprise,

Dahlia, orange and yellow poppies dance,
Oleander with their pink flowers put us in stance,

Irises swayed taller on their stalks,
Bougainville like trumpets' melody outlast,

Bluebells borrowed colour from the sky,
Yellow dandelions woke up in golden bright light,

Tulips were as bright as showers,
Their beds flamed like throbbing rings of fire,

Forming shadows were rows of white flowers,
On azure coloured ground like trails of shooting stars,

Tiny wildflowers illuminated the grass,
Like jewels in the dust to nature's sarcast !

The Bee's Discovery

I have found it at last
 Flower told in legends past
    
Its color vibrant as gold
My furry body it will hold

I have had no color since my birth
This is the only color left on Earth

Its yellow beauty is so bright
Brighter than the noon sun’s light

Now on my flower I must feed
The flavor-filled pollen it will bleed

Bounces over and back sweet music sings

Thee sweetest lily and flower of Eden’s garden growing wild and free 
held under this enchantment where the daises circles around gold 

Flower of hearts where there shades of apple blossoms pink 
dazzling the night under the teardrops of angels deeply unfold petals 

Within a black satin velvet sky twinkling centre of stars your beauty outshines 
with piercing diamond light inside a halo you are crowned perfectly regal 

Princess of the starlight gaze faraway holding a dream enveloping an echo
enchanted by the magic you spell one in a thousand whispers

- Young Divine Happiness -

She is young and free, and most of her love lies in front of her
As the dawning twilight holds one breathless air under misted whispers 

A sight she often looks beyond the vast land that always ends in the ocean
Upon the rocks driven by a sea breeze salted fragrance lingers 

Waves and natural forces full of power draws upon sound and rhythm
Mixed echoes crying gulls rise and fall as they crash ringing home 

To walk along the beach barefoot, she has time to be young  
Reflecting back on each step forward petals of a sunbeam enters 

Feeling divine happiness every second heartbeat without a special reason
Time begins to challenge the labours of the trodden path 

Live it is to dare, nobody has gone in her step before
Standing upon the apex captivated by thought spiralling 

Form a sculpture of wet sand, without being critical
Leaving an imprint under the shell where holds precious pearls 

A way to expose oneself to something unfamiliar and unsafe
Petals of a flower dancing to a winds melody rings midnight bells 

She dreams of love, with expectations and hope to be a queen 
Under the starlight where a moon's cradle swoons her with a smile 

A hand to hold, the first kiss ... a puzzling thought
Where memories are born a fire always burns regally sealed

Queen of flowers

Underneath the currents shifting sand 
turning over tides touch waves salted

Moonlight of a silver whisper echoes 
Standing still time breathless satin silk baited

Velvety white rose of purity dancing on air nods 
your petal softness opens out from the heart claimed

Fairest in the garden beauty upon thorns sits 
sweetly scented in a summer fragrance kissed

When the sun awakens entering your colour shines 
crowned by the dewdrops of morning warmly blessed

Dandelion Hope

Oh Dandelion, gone’s your golden top.
When did it turn to feathered lollipop?
You stand and tempt the tongues of summer breeze
to taste the sweet and soft of many seeds.
Each grain’s a wish with parachute deployed
that spins in wind a silken asteroid.
Your dreams are fluff until they touch the ground.
Each seed’s the stuff that lands a golden crown.

Dreams In Her Eyes

She see's through daisies and succumbs to night things
Her heart keeps on breathing for pleasure in the evenings

She's wanting to see you at any time of day with eyes wide open
Even when she see's through an ivory of daisies amidst within

Her viewing embers are so well hidden, along with her knowledge
Are her own makings with in this fine enclosure of foliage


She's the epitome of a wonton beauty as you shall see
Oh how she does love you, while smells and is so free

She see's through daisies and succumbs to night things
Her heart keeps on breathing for pleasure in the evenings.

George Dunlop Leslie : Potpourri

It takes planning, a graveled path, herb sets
to create a heavenly perfume

some time around bloom time
excess pruned down by a third and hung.

We see a bit of the hanging God then
in the silky down of lavender, thyme

offer homage of pressed violets, 
golden suns of marigold as tune of awe.

The mincing of the mints is heavenly
as candy, sharp peppermint, mellow lemon balm,

the bedding down of chamomile, poppy maw,
the spiral sweets and gingered leaves of geranium

shavings of orris root, too many iris anyway
so free them all and set the scent create a smelly sum.

Add carnation stars, sticky sweet hollows of fennel
to tell the men, here is where the women live

won’t you remember your marjoram, your rosemary
with the pots on to boil, or laying head on crisp sheets and sigh.

It all takes planning, to decorate, alleviate, scent
create the corners of a life. Let’s go set the herbs.

Then breathe in the heavenly scent of potpourri lent
as offering, homage to all the plenty wonder of our lives.

Morning glory

For the hills they undulate and roll,
Set beneath a crimson sky.
Image liken, to castle ramparts past,
Now slowly worn away with time.
For only seconds before the dawn,
And the mighty sun to rise.
Once more its rays to warm the earth,
And ascend into the sky.
For little bird how sweet you sing,
As you usher now the new morn in.
From branch to branch flit to and fro,
Along the leafy wild hedgerow.
For amongst the green, a dusting fare,
Of pastel shades of color there.
For gentle are the flowers that spring,
Who’s petals blossom like fairy wings.

Break Not A Flower Nor Inscribe A Stone - a collaboration with Anne-Lise



I feel it so strongly deep inside the cry of your heart
It but echoes my souls endless fear of being apart
 
Use your strength to go on with life even though it is hard
Where is life’s joy when treated with such reckless disregard?
 
I wonder can I ever free you from this endless pain?
My body and soul are laden with such cold heavy chain
 
Lead me through the maze of your mind, let me break down the wall
The donjon has been built of adamant and shall not fall!

I will rend the dark veil and bright starlight will fill your soul
The battlements long secure crumble, your love makes me whole!

I am a Red Red Rose

I am a red red rose
A beauty to behold
My texture captivates
My scent invigorates
Petals, a velvet red
Coverings for your bed
Leaves an emerald garb
That hide the hidden barb
Though thorns be on my stem
Touch me, ignoring them
Please, handle me with care
Dethorned, my beauty bare
I am a red red rose
Your passion for me grows
Rose water from me drips *
And wets your precious lips
I beautify your soul
My presence makes you whole
I am a red red rose

PS...A different take on Robert Burns famous Poem, A Red Red Rose.

*By the way, rose water is used in many desserts in Lebanon. One of my favorites, Mouhalabieh, a white custard that is topped with syrup and pistachios, contains rose water. Yummy....Let your mind run riot with that one! :)

COLOURS


Colours It’s almost March and Spring will come To brighten daisies in the sun, As tinted buds around my gate Will soon wear garlands, I await. As yellow pours down upon their bodies, Softly caressing every curve, To rise in sweet thrills of fantasies Then down the limbs , a golden swerve. When hues of morn begin to croon Their rhythm to cycle’s fortune Oh daisies in the sun, I’ll hear The lambent glow of Spring’s premiere! Colours Contest of Shadow Hamilton posted 2/8/2014

Upon A Bed Of Petals

There in a bed of petals rests
The latest blooms burst from their nests

Beneath the trees in even's shade
Those nodding flowers dipped and swayed

And one more tender petal fell
The coloured bed of scents to swell

I'll rest me in this quiet shade
'Till sunset's glow does quickly fade

And rest me in these petals sweet
No kingly throne made greater seat

From thence the view I shall survey
The setting sun, the flowers gay

And if, perhaps, I then should tire
I'd follow this, my heart's desire

And there upon that petalled bed
I'd rest my weary, happy head

Perfumed by fragrance from the ground
To go where pleasant dreams abound

Just One More Day

Dad Revisited

RIP 1924-2015


Last night I sat up in bed and prayed a little longer,
I asked god to send dad back for just one more  day with great fervour.

Dad was waiting for me in the verandah as soon as I reached,
Seated on his cane chair with legs outstretched.

Suited- booted, neat crisp turban, expectant eyes so tender
The same tweed coat, the warm muffler across his shoulder.

The moment he saw me he fumbled for his walking stick,
Stood up took a few steps forward in a nick.

We embraced each other tight as he planted as kiss on my head,
I nuzzled against his warm coat enjoying the love of my figurehead.

Warm drops of love fell on my cheeks,
Saw oceans pouring through his teary creeks.

'I can't control them', he said chokingly, 
Feeling the other's heart beats we clung to each other tightly.

'Let's go to the garden, the grape fruit is waiting for you!'
We walked together slowly over his leafy garden dew.

Dad showed me the new cuttings and saplings he had potted for me,
He pointed to the overgrown grass and said his workers were on leave.

He said,' Ah, for more varieties of flowers!
But the dogs don't spare them in my bowers'.

We smiled and saw the overladen grape fruit trees,
I plucked three grapefruits and said they would suffice with a tease.

We slowly climbed up the steps to our sunny verandah to sit alone,
He asked me what was it that I had wanted to tell him over the phone.

I read out my poem, '13, West Macott Road', a nostalgia shakeup, 
Of our ancestral home in Poona where he had grown up.

I was reared up there, too, by my grandparents,
He wept and hugged each other, our undying love evident.

'I can't believe you had this talent and I didn't know about it till now,
You always make me cry with your emotions, but no more will I allow!'

He took out his kerchief to wipe my tears, his permanent flair,
I was still sniffing when I sighted his empty cane chair.
