Poe and I
lonely, lost love,
Poe's darkness calls to such as I, an ember,
a velvet covered wing chair's grasp on dark nights.
I seek the maudlin moan of his December
love, relationship, thank you,
You could never be mad at me
Wise old man whom my heart could see
You were there when I needed you
Just a young child so full...
Glacial hills rise elevating fervid sights
Mesmerizing desires adorned turquoise blue
Arousing cobalt passions in sapphire heights
Floating cotton balls on melting cyan hue.
Above your scenic view gloats...
childhood, fantasy, happy, imagination,
As a girl, I imagined a place to be
Sprinkled in stardust, where grassy skies rotate
A pirate nymph, commanding the purple sea
Leaping unicorns across a rainbow...
Tiger in the Sea
adventure, animals, seame, tiger,
I thought I had hooked the world’s largest grouper
After struggling for hours, I was still reeling
Refused help from a friend; I was a trooper
I AM AN 8
A gypsy dance enthralls the stars
into a twirl of rustling hems
as women tap bare feet, guitars
lift twiddling notes of lore’s anthems
along a woodland’s lively...
A Sweet Song
beauty, nature, daffodils,
In skies of blue or stormy seas
I am awed by nature's beauty
In fragrant rose where beauty grows
I praise the Lord who made...
Love Is Actually Commitment
love, true love,
Love is actually commitment, you see,
not fluttering heart or tingle down your spine.
It’s adorned with true responsibility.
There’s no denying, its origin divine.
Truly seeks to...
beautiful, child, summer,
A ballerina butterfly, she’s gliding
sweetly through the meadow’s grass still fresh with dew.
She sees a stream, kicks off her shoes, and sliding
down from a rock,...
Cerulean lake flows beneath azure dome
Charming revelers in waters cobalt blue
Gazing into horizon where eagles roam
Greeting scenic pastures in aerial view.
Upon shamrock landscapes quiver golden...
animal, beautiful, memory, places,
Tall and lovely palms are swaying island fair
within the tropical gentle trade wind's flow
as elegant Egrets glide on salty air—
then softly land where verdant...
Where Faeries Play
Mist in the distance, heart quickens to gooseflesh
Whisky Jacks perch silent, they've seen me before
Brother Wolf has been by, his scat is still fresh
Our Beloved Teacher
Our Beloved Teacher
( Sonnetina Rispetto)
Torch of knowledge from you we take
You hold our hands for our dreams sake
Values and love we emulate
Like dad and...
Although her smile I could not see,
Lucilla smiled through poetry.
This lovely lady I met here
who graced us with her sunny ways
until her very final days
The trodden pathway of brown pebble stones and grass
Leads to a hidden meadow below a mountain pass
Where soft gentle winds flow endless from blue...
A Twisted Ploy
age, introspection, philosophy,
Somehow it seems life loses joy
A game, perhaps a twisted ploy
An end to those most tender years
The zest is gone, but life goes on
BOLD GYPSY HUMBLED
On full moon night, wild tresses float like flowers
as stars ignite her arms to dance, then to pull
her gypsy robe, arise tambourine hours ;
allegory, family, god, international,
In a flower’s velvet petals
There dwells a divine scent and hue
Soon a tiny creature settles
That will help pollinate a few.
We are blossoms of...
heart, innocence, love, passion,
She’s wild, a passionate heart of love inspired
Playing a violin, masterful and free
So fast and fierce, her every lust is desired
Violin sparks aflame burning intensely
A slice of sun rises over Oahu
like a pineapple ripened to yellow-gold;
an island paradise under drapes of blue
shining in morning mist on hibiscus, bold.
It's Halloween and witches fly
With ghosts and goblins coming by.
The polite child thanks for his treat.
Guided by jack o lantern glow
He knows where great treats...
Purple Horizon Proud
animals, death, health, inspirational,
The sun rose bright red not a dark cloud in sight
Few whispy cotton clouds...
anger, bullying, fire, freedom,
Into the darkness she envelopes the night
Seeking something special that eludes her eyes
Just as she thought it was lost and out of sight
Her hand catches...
The Oracle's Descent
Footsteps absorbed as maids descend
into the Delphi's cave they went.
Pellucidar is what they sought;
no thoughts of Dante's lurid hell;
questing an inner earth to dwell.
The Realm of the Lyrical Poetess
How I admire the lyrical poetess!
She, who watches nature's beauty all around,
yearns to feel the wind of summer's soft caress
as she listens for the magic...
