Drum beat

Drum beat
  The sound of hearts
Beating to love's smooth rhythm
Sometimes a  brokenhearted  tune
  Hoping for another chance at love's oft
 Moody melodic emotions
That dance upon  lyrics,  
   The beat goes on...
  Drum beat

Bed of Roses

The love
you've sown within
the heart and soul of me
grows like a lush summer garden
and I am filled with your tender beauty
I gather roses in the sun
and offer you bouquets
on petals sweet
we lie

Purring

Purring contentedly just being with my love and basking in the afterglow of our ascent to the peak of pleasure, I now settle, spent and cozy, in the crook of his arm like a kitty - purring.

Echo

Your tongue
suspiciously
spoke of constellations,
an unlicked sky gripping secrets
nonetheless, that mouth spat it's majesty
without ever stirring the air 
proving no white stardust
really adorns
your tongue

Howling at Love



Howling
Like the wolf cries
Screaming foreboding skies
Yelling for your love till sunrise
The erring echoes of your love reprise
Tangled tears that follow surmise
Bitter sorrows capsize
With empty eyes
Howling

Promise

Promise
Moon held and made
bathed-beams of love sonnets
dried by sun's own romantic pledge
of streamed warm rays on love's future solace ~
As days then nights honed my prayers
my pain slow climbed sky stairs
and found you there
Promise

Growing

                              Growing
                       As I catch Light
                As rays dissolve my fright
        As my soul dares the mighty height
       As I lend a heart and root out a spite
                As I ease pain into delight
                 As my soul gets refined
                        As I hold tight
                             Growing

Sweetness - Rictameter

Sweetness
                Perfume, Flowers 
             A Gentle Rain-Shower  
        Candy Kisses, Chocolate Hour  
Spring Breezes, Sheltered Cover, Leafy Bower 
      The Sloping Curves of Your Profile 
          Tempting Lips that Beguile
               Love's Tender Smile
                                             Sweetness

                             Heaven-sent, you my saint
                        The root of my roots, my deep land
                         Your traits ever I carry in my stand
                            From your very core I expand
                                  Me suffices be proud
                                      Of my dearest
                                            Mother

                                  I learned not to whine
                          Just your sweet memory to prize
                      I hold you mum dear and even I smile
                       Aches lose essence in your presence
                              My heart but full of lumps
                                     Yearning for you
                                             Mother

The Rose

 the rose
 loses petals
 as summer slowly fades
 casting autumn's gloomy shadow
 with whispers of tomorrow's falling leaves
 and summer's golden memories
 will linger for awhile
 then they fade, like
 the rose..

MOONLIGHT

Moonlight
shadows glisten
like sparkling diamonds
on lapping waves which wash over 
our toes as we stroll barefooted along 
the shore of the deserted beach 
how I love evening walks 
with you in the
moonlight

Diamonds counted as 3 syllables*

Belief

Belief

in a Heaven

after death on this earth?

Is it true or a fairy tale?

Is death just an eternal rest of wait,

for God's final trumpet call, when

all will be immortal?

Soul with spirit,

again.

A Good Factor

The things
we do come back
in three fold I am told
Hold this knowledge close to your heart
so what you choose to do unto others
is done with kindness, care and love
and in the end good will
come back to you
times three.

The Ghost Town


It was
a dalliance
this bucolic lost town,
just ephemeral my visit,
petrichor scents of fresh rain, just fallen,
birds songs a harbinger of me,
oh serendipity,
efflorescence
caress.

I feel
the erstwhile past
in the vacant buildings,
the sadness an epiphany,
beyond nature calls my propinquity
but I stay and stroll empty streets,
redolent with flowers,
this demesne lost
in time.

I Rise

I rise
to catch the day,
Many weep to cuddle.
I rise to the super blessings- 
Those ones that parade around vivid earth,
The rooted crust and resources.
I rise to the rainbow-
Arch of colours

Angels

Angels are all around they can be anything holding your hand when life looks glum when feeling as though you want to give up Many things changed when you passed on alone, scared by myself I will be your Angel
By P.D~
Angels are among us~ walking side by side! Giving us strength to believe in. As the day draws close my breath is overwhelmed by beauty. The beauty I find divine when it comes to our friendship'' I open my mind to the flight of your wings. The fascinating way your innocence sings. Hopefully you are that angle I lay my trust in too..

A Day In Pergamon


A Day In Pergamon


Demesne
at Pergamon
stirred an epiphany.
The Aqueducts, Acropolis,
propinquity, Temple Dionysus,
Trajan Temple, all so magnificent.
Persian, Greek and Roman wonders;
some standing, most lying...
erstwhile kingdoms,
all gone.

I viewed
and imagined
robust efflorescence
that once filled this bucolic place.
Dalliance here, much too ephemeral.
Damp ruins, yellow soil stirred petrichor.
Wild grass, broken art; redolent
grave serendipity...
wars...harbinger...
of loss.

                 I gently stroke your wavy hair
            Lovingly I bend to kiss your forehead

What the Eye Sees the Heart Cannot Forget


Secrets,
now memories,
piggybacked through summer.
On handlebars, calloused fingers
steered dirt bikes to an emerald kingdom.
Two boys, on tree stump thrones, ruled worms
unearthed with splendid crowns
of sundrenched leaves,
carefree.

They Can Teach Us A Lot

Nice books 
Are just awesome 
They can teach us a lot 
Help us know things when we read them 
We can explore new worlds and more with them 
Books are wonderful full of fun 
Most books can feed our minds 
We all should read 
Nice books.
