Premium Member Language of Summer
Summer speaks to me by waking me up early
Playing tunes of beautiful song bird melodies
Blowing cool breezes in early mornings
Creating chimes of rustling tree leaves

She speaks to me through marvels of elaborate spider webs 
Through various trees’ dazzling green shades...Read More

That Resplendent Scene

winter white landscape
frozen limbs on ancient trees
old snowshoes ready

dark shadows, death waits

moonlight on lake shore

Time and Its Sad Afterglows

porch swing, one old dog
green pasture and fallen barn
dawn's light, empty house

Quantum display
A nano spark

Neutrino fast

In the dark

A quantum light

Spreads out

Across the universe

In kinetic form

I see it disperse

Among the quasars

And the asteroid belts

And it blazes

Like lasers

Across the cosmos

Leaving afterglows

And then it's followed

By a full array

Of quarks

Causing a redshift

And a doppler effect

That resonates...Read More

Premium Member What Lovely Interruption
My admiration grows
with every conversation,
with every new occasion
that's given me to glimpse your radiant face.

I'm stricken by your grace.
Serenity's your essence;
I weaken in your presence.
And nothing is enough compared with you.

I'm driven to pursue
this sweet increasing pleasure.
Not unobserved, full measure

With the break of dawn, as I watch you sleep,
           ... sun peeks in.... with gentle fingers on your face....
The morning wakes again, ..and day begins,

Premium Member NIGHT SWAY
Dust descends and day is done,
Darkness lays a restive spread;
Evening ushers new puns,
Hear the night owl in the glades.


This starry nocturne reveals
A cast of night time charades;
Deep dark propels a strange feel,
Cicadas and frogs spark trade.


Outside our window a burst:
Fireflies...Read More

Daybreak slipping through these champagne curtains

Red silk; twined aneath crimsons sheets; awakening....

This afterglows mornings dew; her wet moist kisses 

Soft sunrise and whom can deny such love; about her

Kittens den; purrr; feed me this need of your heavenly

Breed; cranberry breast...Read More

Unto Gentle Love
Lady of the dawn
And angel of the eve
In twilight moments
Thou unfold your wings
Thus, become the one I need

Into nightless weaves 
Unto gentle love
Caress breathless 'neath
Morning songs in satin wreathes
Afterglows above

In essence passion paints
Thou lift me up
Higher than a mountain
Over heavens...Read More

Two Left Feet
On a fire-cracked Sunday
we started the laughter
peeling the rind off the sun dripping juice
Burning the grass with each
step that we took,
as we danced~
Never a keeper of soul,
Never one to put up a jive
with left feet like rocks
I break into smiles
You...Read More
