to walk with a blossoming dread
through streets, as if we have no will,

great miseries, so once grown old,

with all these free hours...
The Hands of Time-Rondeau
destiny, sleep, time,
The Hands of Time
The hands of time stand eerie still
Where hearts chamber a cagey chill,
And whispers warn of shadows deep
With eyes that strain as shower’s...
Memories of the Sea
Memories of the sea wash over me
on days when clouds are drifting cottony
above my head through placid azure sky.
Such images flit like a butterfly
Words left Unsaid
lost love, relationship,

The price of love, their hearts would tell
And so they parted, love took flight
And left their...
Life Is a Dance

The styles to choose from are more than a few!
Some choose simple two-step; some move with...

I Dreamed a Butterfly
love, spring, , sweet
I dreamed a butterfly in golden days
when buttercups lay in the fields ablaze.
It fluttered to my cheek, sweet love to bring.
My heart was wont to...
lost love, love, sadlove,
Upon her thorny heart I bleed;
My rose I nurtured from a seed,
With blazing bloom and perfume sweet,
Who pricked me with her warm deceit,
To where I...
I lay my head
I lay my head upon the softness of its mane
My white charger, no knight for a swain
as I am the gallant rider looking for love.
A Blazing Fire
A blazing fire is crackling its refrain
as I recall a love, perhaps not sane.
Beside this hearth you tenderly caressed
my body and we simmered; then we...
The breath of autumn, from behind a veil
of days lit golden, comes! The sun will fail
to keep its fiery hold on us, and soon
This Heavy Guilt
forgiveness, hurt, love,
This heavy guilt weighing on me,
Like too many leaves on a little tree
Covered in rain from a sky that poured
I hurt a person who I...
upon a gilded meadow glows a bottle of tender tears
scattered ashes burnt and laden carpeting of stone
ravished emotions turbulent feasting on flesh...

one woman at a headstone weeps
as memories in warmth she keeps,

For Our Love So True
For our love so true lasts now forever
For I knoweth I shall leave you never,

The woman cuddles, silently
beside her lover, brazenly
until dawn welcomes the sunrise.

With drops of rain and...
I hear their laughter and see their bright smiles,
Going round and round with joy together,
Their rhapsody reaches far beyond miles,
I hear their laughter.
I believe their...

Just within reach - if only I could dare
to pluck that fruit! A luscious peach or pear?

I’m speaking! Like a...
