Love's Alchemy is Eternal

Love’s Alchemy is Eternal

Your look, touch, and scent now so perfect pure,
Enchants my true emotions and soaring passion.
I knoweth now our love shall always endure,
As God unites our souls as one by divine action!

Our sensual passion defines love’s spirit entire,
As we caress and kiss for this moment’s bliss.
Love’s alchemy maketh our spirits soar afire,
As we embrace our lips find that deepest kiss!

Our hearts beat now in a sacred tempo of love,
That reflects our real destiny, two souls as one.
This is God’s gift to us from Heaven high above,
As we wish these magic moments of eternal fun!

By Heaven, I pray our love’s alchemy forever,
And declareth my love shan’t leave you ever!

Elysium Fields

In Elysium Fields by dawn of day,
I saw The vision of Love’s own sweet dream.
Beside your beauty a fawn it did play,
As rainbow light about you both did stream.

The light did glisten from your soft brown eyes,
Love-light did shine forth from your bright orbs there.
This was Elysium, my paradise,
In which with you life i would Love to share.

In sun’s embrace i do see my treasure,
With you by my side this world would be mine.
You are my sweet desire, my golden measure,
Of human sunlight that shall always shine.

Our Love shall be always what power it yields,
Together within Elysium Fields.

In Love's Sweet Embrace

Within the forest green we both do stand
Sun filters through the leaves to touch glory
I hold you close swimming within Brown eyes
In vision’s eye i can tell our story,

You smile on me and i feel your sweet Love
I see Love’s beauty within your dear face
My beloved Heaven is where you are
When i am with you in Love’s sweet embrace.

In Love’s sweet embrace i now stand with you
In the forest green we feel Love’s desire
Yet in my heart i shall forever know
That Love’s embrace shall ever light our fire..

Wherever we stand that shall be Love’s space
Forever we stand in Love’s sweet embrace.

A Poet's Happy Dream

I found myself against a willow propped.
The stones nearby me were a hundred-fold.
and one by one I tossed them as they plopped
into a rill while other pebbles rolled,
as if with one accord, away from me.

Their hundred ripples bubbled sweet champagne.
I drank. . . and then I tasted poetry.
saw flowers dance, and nothing was mundane!
Elysian then became the air I breathed.
The sun glowed purplescent.  Hocus-pocus!
I lay in greenest green while music wreathed
the meadow, lulling me. . . till I lost focus.

I woke to dusk and that inquietude
that ever shadows my dark solitude.

Once Upon a Summer's Eve

I had a dream one sultry summer's eve
A vision as the sun began to wane
An angel weeping made my soul to grieve
I clearly sensed his sadness and his pain

With teary eyes I asked him what was wrong
And was there anything that I could do
His words to me were spoken in a song
I came to understand his point of view

He told me he'd been watching from on high
So many poets fighting down below
Why couldn't they make peace, he wondered why
If only they would try, true love would flow

I slept that night uneasy and in prayer
Will anyone who reads this even care

The Last Night Star

We lie together under the willow
I hold you in my arms and i do see
The light of God’s own flickering sunlight
On the horizon is winking on we

And in the heart of love’s own fiery blaze
A single star in Heaven’s sky shines bright
My Love together let us make our wish
Before we see its last flicker of the light..

Cuddled up close we watch the star be gone
To its peaceful sleep as sun does arise
We know again our stars once more shall come
To take their peaceful place within night skies.

And in the sky we can see from afar
Our tiny twinkling friend the last night star.

Oh How Bright Your Eyes Did Shine - A Collaboration With Robert Lindley

"Oh How Bright Your Eyes Did Shine."
A Collaboration By,
Robert Lindley.
Michael P Clarke.

Oh How Bright Your Eyes Did Shine that morning, 
I held you so close and the world was mine, 
we shared our love as the day was dawning, 
I drank from your goblet, our love divine. 

Sunlit echoes played to our beating hearts, 
precious, very precious our love-held Time. 
We had it all and all that bliss imparts, 
our days and nights joyous, dreams so sublime. 

Our song it was sung our hearts love displayed, 
love was our journey a heaven divine, 
now in our hearts memories we replay, 
Love in our summer that ever did shine. 

May forever, dawns wake us together. 
In true depths of love, bid us fair weather. 

Thank you for sharing your ink with me Robert. It has been both a pleasure and an honour to do this Collaboration. Your Friend....Mike.

Blossoms and Bubbles

Effervescent laughter blows over vales
then falls soft to glaze new blooms posed genteel.
Gracious stems lift smiles to foamed skies surreal,
riding on sunrays of shimmery sails.

Splendid dreams bubble up from blossoms bright,
a sparkling scene as petals parade ‘round.
Cushioned on spring breeze, love waits to be found;
warm thoughts of you fly then burst in midflight.

Light bubbles join hands to soar through puffed clouds
winking at flowers in latest spring styles.
Their joy christens lands once silent for miles;
orbs popping with flair in breath’s blooming shrouds.

Laughter lifts skyward, an aerated tale,
of bubbles blown high above blooming vale.

Ask and wish bold, ask for clear sight;
Dare to seek out, dare to be brave;
Reach and unfold, reach your true light;
Explore grand bout, explore your crave;
Allow your heart, allow your soul;
Mind that fond dream, mind knows the way.
Choice helps you start, choice makes you whole;
Opt for fine theme, opt not to stray.
Move your world now, move your thoughts forth;
Embrace your dream, embrace your play.
Touch and endow, touch and go north;
Reap your grand scheme, reap your sure day.
Use your time here, use your days well;
Explore rich space, explore and tell.

A Penny For Your Thoughts

"The best things in life come in threes . . . friends, dreams and memories" Author unknown _____________________ Old and new friends are gems to cherish in my heart, In my darkest hours friends have held me close; Although in time we may be miles and miles apart They have listened with tears to my sad grieving prose. All my days are reverie and my nights lost in dreams, And with my dripping pen I create my poetry; With dream inspired words, lines, emotions and themes, Sorrow has made me the poet I was meant to be. Ah, memories, memories so bittersweet, In my mind I see our old house amongst the trees; I have memories of mom's tangled garden seat, Of bright, heavenly flowers waving in the breeze. And through the years I have learned life is deep, Entangled with friends, dreams and memories to keep. ______________________________ March 14, 2015 Sonnet For the contest, A Penny For Your Thoughts, sponsor, Sara Kendrick Theme - Deep thoughts Third Place

Castles In The Sky

The sandman will take pause and say a prayer
Then reach in to his special bag of sand
And with a sweeping motion of his hand
Bright glitter colored stardust fills the air

It falls to bring a dream beyond compare
Where castles in the sky are gold and grand
A momentary glimpse of "Beulah Land"
As we envision life beyond death's stare

And with that thought we'll take a rattled breath
The last tear of this life will find release
We'll see our shooting star, a passing flash
Exhale our soul and welcome life in death
Then build our castles on white clouds of peace
The sandman will sweep up our sparkling ash

I Dream of Dreams

I dream of a place where dancers embrace,
Waltzing together incipient lights,
Music transposed echoed heavenly grace,
Accompanies first harmonious nights;

I dream of lilacs and lavender mist,
Adrift susurrus shoreline’s infinite breeze,
Flowing compassion through time reminisced,
That journeys taken be traveled with ease:

I dream of a whisper remembered well,
Spoken in honeydew’s gentle caress,
Promising lovers when broken-hearts swell,
Friendship would mean there’s always forgiveness.

I dream of a dream where happiness numbs,
That dreams of a place where yesterday comes.

A Lady Of Light

I saw one night within a starlit lake
A Lady arise from waters so clear
What I did see had to be a mistake
I saw you there you seemed so very near.

Once more in my dream you had come to me
From the water I saw great beauty rise
You my beloved my eyes now did see
And you did smile at me to my great surprise.

You came from the water I felt your hand
I felt the touch of Love's lips so sublime
I held you close before me you did stand
Ever my Lady of Light in Love's time

I long for the time we meet in the night
You are my beautiful Lady of Light.

Stained Glass Dream

It saddens me to gaze upon the stars
I see them blinking, fighting back their tears
Reminding me our distance is so far
Their numbers are the days without you near

Assembling pieces of my scattered thoughts
An image comes to me in stained glass scenes
Subconsciously I gather shards embossed
Create a picture of you here with me

Then suddenly a sign from fate appears
A shooting star takes flight across the sky
I close my eyes and wish that you were here
To stay with me and never say goodbye

I think about the happiness love brings
Then go inside to dream my stained glass dream

Beyond the Breakers

In shallow waters, I look out to sea.
Small waves are lapping, giving me a sting 
upon my legs with their frigidity.
My body, with my thoughts, is wandering
as I wade farther, ever farther out.
Beyond the breakers, I would love to go.
Could anybody even hear me shout
if I were caught inside an undertow?
A splash of violet on twilight’s sky
reminds me I must stay nearby the shore!
Deep feelings surge like waves. I want to cry.
How beautiful it is, yet I want more!
Vast ocean, like my dreams, is out of reach.
I turn away and wade back to my beach.

We Stand On Arrach - For Nicola

My Celtic queen on Arrach we do stand,
a memory to always touch the heart,
we shall fly through Celtic skies take my hand,
and now in love’s heart we shall never part.

My Celtic rose your beauty it does shine,
you stand atop Arrach my shining sun,
on the horizon our love is divine,
atop sacred Arrach our love does run.

My celtic song in my heart i do sing,
i stand before glory my Irish rose,
let all desires be fulfilled love we bring,
atop the Arrach our Celtic love grows.

We stand on Arrach now we do embrace,
Celtic love shining it shines in your face.

By The Babbling Brook

Together we walk by the babbling brook,
slowly flow the waters upon their way,
so cool are the waters on which we look,
as along forest floor the brook does play.

You and i standing in each others arms,
as we watch the brook as it softly flows,
sun glints on the water enhancing charms,
as sweet Love within our hearts it does grow.

We hear the soft voice of the babbling brook,
it whispers its cool words into our ears, 
upon the playful waters we do look,
remembering all our most peaceful years.

Our Love shall ever be an open book,
as in Love we stand By The Babbling Brook.

Farmers Wish


Woke up this morning with the sun in my eyes
Wishing for rain in the clear blue skies
We’re faced with a problem every single day 
Our stocks are all dying right were they lay

Tanks are all empty once again, bore’s all dead & dry
Banks want more money, but lord how I try
Year after year praying for rain
Hail Mary, my prayers are in vein

I can remember when I was a boy 
My dad and his dad too, had so much green
Had so much green green grass

We used to play and swim in the creek 
But all that I’m left with is barren ground
More dead sheep, stacked ten deep

I can’t give up not while I breath
Cause I’m a fair dinkum Aussie guy,
Who never ever gives up
Too much to live for before I say goodbye

So while there is food on the table and a beer in hand
I’ll keep on fighting for my home on the land
With my wife standing tall along my side
We’ll keep on fighting till the day we say goodbye

Night Angel

In deep slumber madness, she comforts me
Appearing, unencumbered, from the mist
Subconscious suspension our nightly tryst
Erasing my mind of bad memories
She mends and warms my soul so tenderly
Imbibing my thoughts and heart with her kiss
Lovingly fulfills a long ago wish
Thankfully restoring my sanity
Regularly she visits in silence
Enlightening my dreams with wholesomeness
Wiping my tears of angered betrayal
Exchanging her love for malevolence
I awaken with renewed happiness
Refreshed from the angelic portrayal

Dream Lover

He comes in my sleep, in the quiet hours and brings with him feelings of deep emotion I pray that tonight will bring me the power to wrap me again in his love and devotion When dawn tints the sky, all my dreams will fall dead But moonlight will bring him to my window sill I lay down my head on the soft pillowed bed, then feel his warm arms fold around me, still Sleep's cunning deceit, makes believe he is mine But, a morning's sunrise knows the fool am I Daylight will take him, and my heart is resigned to mourn for my lover, where dreams go to die He comes in moonlight, where love's passion ignites, 'til it takes him away in the dawn's early light

He should desire a verse of lost day past
while time enough was free to have enough,
When pace and life led more to mean but fast
as Simon said to simply breathe a puff.

To love and be less reckless with his heart,
Speak not of sin nor breach of true love’s spring,
Complete the bond not pressed akin to part
as forced to split amoebas’ kiss must sting.

He must observe his one true Master plot,
His growth less err forgone fulfills defense,
An age to find a soulmate’s breath he sought,
Their fit from Simon’s game of simple sense.

The dream of love begins with one shared breath,
The test of love whilst joined hearts beat ‘til death.

Summer Solstice - My Midsummer Dream

Sweet summer comes in June and I will be 
Underneath the sun, for I’m awaiting
Midsummer dreams and my own chance to see
Magical small beings out creating
Enchantment at the setting of the sun!
Radiance can catch a wee fairy’s eye

So stones in a circle could attract one.
Objects shiny too might make one less shy!
Longer is this day, so before the night,
Sugared fruits I’ll put out too, then await
The fairies and stay awake till daylight
In case one comes. Oh, wouldn’t that be great!
Come dawn, I’ll watch sun climb high and higher
Eastward, and there I'll see the sky catch fire.

Sunrise, Heaven And Nature Conspire

Sunrise, Heaven And Nature Conspire!

At sunrise, when morn breaks into sweet day
Darkness,eases into another far lost realm
Light returns to splendor in its bright way
Sun-ship glowing,celestial giant at the helm!

We that rise up to see this wondrous event
soak in its beauty, holding its glory fast
Our future embraced and our past thus spent
each day's memories and hopes sail at last!

Heaven and Nature conspire to give that gift
hours await to explore life's great dreams
Darkness fled,giving again blessed day shift
full of promises riding magnificent streams!

At sunrise, when morn breaks into its sweet day
Earth gives man more time to love, dance and play!

I dreamt it all

	I know that I shall meet a pretty someone
	Somewhere in the shops across the mall;
	Those that I date now I do not love at all,
	The lips that I kiss now I do it all for fun;
	My life is driven by dreams and fate,
	My love life is without honesty or sate,
	But no part of you could understand me well
	Or know what I feel or know where I dwell.
	Nor guilt, nor situation oblige me to lie,
	Nor predicaments, bade me to sigh,
	A lonesome soul bereft of delight –
	I, who sleeps alone, by the night;
	I dreamt it all: the woman, the date, and the day,
	The months to come will demise my solitude away
	Because all that I dreamt is all that I sought,
	There shall be no more cries nor any ugly thought.

Lost love


Depth of feeling to confess none the less 
and more then all of love, before the fall 
Avow my deepest dreams to love's address 
in adherence to my heart a yearning call. 
Tis your fairest beauty I adore in vain 
and yes, the fondness of your touch remains 

Unspoken word and feeling in due strain 
I hang on to emotions that won't slow 
Still my heart re-glows despite the pain 
because my love for you refuses to let go 
One day mayhap this heart shall heal, 
but oh for now it's like unbended steel 

I feel the sadness, tears, & want to cry, 
and know I didn't deserve to feel this lie.

In The Still Of The Night: Collaboration with Vlad

In sorrow weeping upon your own bed 
I watch you now in sadness despairing 
Upon the pillow of pain lies your head 
Lost in the grief your temple is bearing 

My heart is light and it must come to you 
Fear not the shadow that comes from the storm 
For i do bring light in its golden hue 
To fill with peace your desirable form 

As i sit on the bed open your eyes 
Into sadness Soul i plainly do see 
Take my hand come with me to paradise 
I shall take you where you do wish to be 

I ever show you a beautiful sight 
We are the dream in the still of the night 

Upon my bed countless tears i have spilled
I shiver in grief while my heart grows cold
Crushed by pain and promises unfulfilled
Sorrows to burgeon my faint heart 'til old

Please impede my fear and somber weeping
You offer peace from shadows where i dwell
With golden light hold me in safekeeping
Raise me from the darkness in which i fell

My eyes trust the benevolence in you
Your hand offers me strength to leave my bed
Lead me where i shall no longer feel blue
To paradise my Soul pleads to be led

We shall soar there among stars of great height
Lost in our dream in the still of the night

You give me your hand and we float away 
Beyond the stars to a land light with dreams 
Hold close to me in each resplendent ray 
You are kissed by a rainbow of sunbeams 

To see the light that now shines in your eyes 
As your smile does light up your sunlit face 
The depth of your Love i now realize 
Come sit with me in dream's blissful space 

In this land of dreams your passion may flow 
Desire is your fire that shall ever burn 
Find all your peace for you know you must go 
When comes breaking day when the night does turn
But know you may always feel this delight 
When darkness falls in the still of the night 
Through a sky glittered with stars we travel
To a rendezvous where our dreams come true
I hold you tight as my fears unravel
Sunbeams of light illuminates my view

Paradise exists and my hope rebounds
As we linger here nestled side by side
Your intimate whispers are revered sounds
My heart shall forget the tears I have cried

This realm of dreams rekindled my sad Soul 
You ignited the flames that warmed my heart
Peace and happiness has made me whole
Each day I shall wait for twilight to start

If you hold my hand my heart shall take flight
When love calls us in the still of the night

A dream is born

It was with innocence the dream was born
purity of childhood‘s ploy, carefree joy
A lease of life to re-emerge each morn
with nature’s awakening to enjoy.
As was nature serene, so too the dream
to live a life of calmness, peace of mind
scales to balance the light of life, a gleam
of hope to plan future visions aligned.
A balance of love between two that share
the nature’s alms to live in peaceful calm
togetherness and bliss, a loving pair
as destiny intended, by life’s realm.

Life´s fulfillment perceived by shared passion.
Worldly lover’s caring with compassion.

In someone else’s dream I long to be. I yearn to permeate his heart and mind. So when he drifts to sleep it’s me he’ll see, and in my arms his paradise he’ll find. We’ll meet inside a world of glowing hues and catch a star to Venus and the moon. As homeward bound on comet’s tail we cruise, I’ll read his wicked thoughts and nearly swoon. Then slowly I’ll fulfill his fantasies. He’ll sweetly moan, and then my name he’ll call. Inside this dream I’ll have him on his knees, for I will be his only and his all. But no, not he. . . it’s I who can’t resist! And it’s in dreams of mine(not his) we’ve kissed.

I dreamed a black; an onyx lake
before the sun’s first dawning rays
its surface marble smooth and makes
no sound without the warmth of day

I saw myself; a ghost it seemed
stripped naked on the grassy floor
beneath the waning moon’s cold beams
just staring at the other shore

From far away a whip-poor-will
called lonely, just a sleepy song
it tickled in the morning chill
and broke the water’s pull – so strong

to slip into that silent space
where never lived a false love’s face

Night Angel - Collaborating Sonnets with Lin Lane

In deep slumber madness, she comforts me
Appearing, unencumbered, from the mist
Subconscious suspension our nightly tryst
Erasing my mind of bad memories
She mends and warms my soul so tenderly
Imbibing my thoughts and heart with her kiss
Lovingly fulfills a long ago wish
Thankfully restoring my sanity
Regularly she visits in silence
Enlightening my dreams with wholesomeness
Wiping my tears of angered betrayal
Exchanging her love for malevolence
I awaken with renewed happiness
Refreshed from the angelic portrayal

Rest easy, dear one. Night Angel is here
To ease the worry from your furrowed brow
Kiss to the cheek, I lay upon you now
In your sweetest dream you will feel me near
Memories of your past no longer live
No need for tears to fall from pain or stress
Tender love I offer in my caress
Gift of my thoughts to you this night I give
Wake on the morrow, glad to greet the sun
Knowing night has me coming through the mist
To comfort once more when your cheek is kissed
As Night Angel hovers o're her loved one
Though I must wait till night sends its moonbeams
I shall never leave you lost in your dreams

Undeserving am I, for such mercy 
A sinner and tormented vagabond 
Cavorting with strumpets in Babylon 
Rendering my soul hungry and thirsty 
Yet nightly, through the mist you come tersely 
Descending with your kindness from beyond 
Blessed with your kiss my memories abscond 
Overfilling my heart with love firstly 
Night Angel, I have prayed for forgiveness 
From the midst of my dreams, am again whole 
By the magnificence of your meekness 
My conscience is now bending from stiffness 
The morning sun brings new light to my soul 
Now no longer will ever go sleepless
