Death of the Poet Destroyer

~The Untold Fatal Attraction Poem~

Mid-morning she sees the sun ahead
Her death flowed in a messaged bottle
Gazing into her brown eyes upon all open sores,
Her conscience dark and gray a never-ending war!
A giant cyclone of a thousand thoughts swirled around this little girl.
Inflicting away the pain, through the comfort of others pen
The way she twisted and twisted life’s perception was out of her control
Inside she knew the glass slipper was never hers to show off
She is baring nothing but a tainted pen, walking throughout eternity’s sand
A prosecutor of misdeeds, accomplishing what, without knowing the way
Departing from her fractured self, she begins to slip into a righteous form,
Twirling her twilight's pen like a baton, spinning it to one final stand
She awakens in a dream, where her sadness does not allow the light to reform
Her body is weak and pale against the birth of her undying sun
Staring down into the deepness of every-bodies abyss
Inside all souls is where she felt lighter, than the retarded sun gives
A crimson sky follows her just to reveal her diminished soul,
A life of shunning out the city glow will always dwell deep inside her
Sleeping under society as one, insulting the taste of innocent blood
Forgetting the vengeance, in a dimension where the pen is mightier than the sword
How did she let it come to this?
In one feeling she fell in love with the spirit of the living rhyme 
Watching from a cave, with a diabolical look
Refusing to grasp the self - nature and kill off the destroyer's will
A price beyond this enigmatic world, craving to be just like them
Condemning her meaning to a blasphemy of white butterflies
Destroying her poetic meaning that was destined to dance a tangle of endless rage
In love with the essence of her deceased will
She clings on to the dimness and brilliance at the same time
All corpses lost beyond the girl in question,
Sympathetic in a bizarre language, she mutters out sweetness
Her heart mended, recognizing all the adoration and poetic addiction
Exchanging the real terror, fixated by the life force of her poetic destruction
Giving birth to a new revelation
Now she will never deceive her love for the making of true art,
Not wanting to belong in this wretched world with her destroying criteria,
Her soul sails looking for a new era where love will no longer generate
As she loathes the love and decides not to destroy this generation with hate

At last, longing this one day with the angel of death
With a closing teardrop, one last thought
My death will not be the end; only the ascension~

"September, beautiful month of my birth, is nigh, but I cannot feel glad." September, drifting in with glow of moon, you stifle Summer’s ardor. . . and she grieves. In guise of fire, the Fall comes all too soon. Your breath grows cool. You’ll blow and loosen leaves. The hills and woodlands will reflect new hues. You stifle Summer’s ardor. . . and she grieves. In Autumn’s chill, the colors are a ruse. For as you pass, the trees are set ablaze. The hills and woodlands then reflect new hues. Though warmth may linger through your final days, old Sun is waning, yet he still seems strong! For as you pass, the trees are set ablaze. September, you’re a melancholy song. Though time be short, you paint a brilliant dusk! Old sun is waning, yet he still seems strong. October looms. . . Your ending will be brusque. September, drifting in with glow of moon, though time be short, you paint a brilliant dusk. In guise of fire, the Fall comes all too soon. Written a long time ago.

The Glory Of The Eastern Edge

In moments of twilight civility an exchange of gifts - darkness for light.. RISING from beyond the softening silhouetted edge you brighten like a blushing damsel hazy haloed taking unabashed pleasure in the ripening dawn daydreamer ...a vivid blur of lemon drop... is veiled by wispy fanfares of mares’ tails windswept forth in pinkened pageantry heralding the maturing marmalade horizon - and arousing a drowsing periwinkle sky your prosperous glow casts a molten net of gold slanting low across the ebb and flow igniting the imagination - agleam with peachy dreams - of just-waking waters and catching fire-tipped riffles; rubies gathered ride the tide to the coastline glamorizing the washed still-sleepy seaward sand saturated in the rose-colored nectar of your generous nature ~ Susan Ashley October 13, 2018 *Mare’s tail: a long narrow cirrus cloud whose flowing appearance somewhat resembles a horse’s tail, often indicating high winds in the upper troposphere.*

The shining light hides behind my eyes,
Comes in a super nova surprise
My spirit glides into the skies,
Spreading the perfect heat like the sunrise

I was like a diamond under the beauty of the ocean!
My current rides out with smooth motions,
Leaving a taste with intense emotion
Captured by my tides, sunk to my love potion

The sun sends my waves like a mirage of snow
I got the moon to favor upon my glow
With every star touching my inner soul
A glimpse of darkness in my light entwining with a massive flow

Blinded by my own ECLIPSE!
My sun & moon collide
Until the day we both touch lips

Softly he says, "should I die do not wait for me." She smiles, "just as the moon exhales no light without first a breath from the sun, without you I'd be in darkness; what is paradise without light."

In the Gloaming

That first glimpse of purple in the gloaming
As dawn softly rises in morning skies 
Ascending along with nature's colors
Is a look of faith and hope in thine eyes.

Wrapped in the rays of sun's glorious hues;
There dwells a calm that instills peace and love
With a passion that enters every cell
In divine grace that shines light from above.

Meditate to serene silent music 
As the melody of birds sing along.
Elated at the birth of the morning
They share delight in their sweet varied song.

 Open your heart to passions of others...
 Feel with the empathy God has bestowed.
 Then you will know the true meaning of life 
 In the receiving back of blessings sowed.

Fun In The Sun

And the people are singing,
the parade has just begun.
People singing and dancing
we are having fun in the sun.
I hear the trumpets loudly playing,
to the beat of the big base drum.
The people they are loudly singing,
let's all have fun in the sun.

For one face I am searching,
I cannot see it anywhere.
As we turn the corner dancing,
there is your glory standing there.
The joy of what is happening,
fills my heart with the beat of the drum.
The sun, its light is smiling,
while we all have fun in the sun.

Take my hand and we'll be dancing,
today all blues will be put on the run.
We are having fun a-moving,
We're all having fun in the sun.
How fast our hearts are beating,
as we're moving to the beat.
Love's song it keeps repeating,
as we all dance down the street.

What if the moon were shining?
stars were out in the velvet sky.
A new song our hearts singing,
On golden wing they would come to fly.
But this is day, sun is beating,
as people now begin to run.
the sea it is welcoming,
when we're having fun in the sun.

We are both having fun in the sun,
the day has truly now begun.
Let us play now in the sea,
you shall have your fun with me.
There is joy and laughter all around,
the song of joy is a happy sound.
Come into my arms on the run,
boy we'll have some fun in the sun.

Sea Bride

Across the white sand waters
meld of teal and turquoise hue,
in sunlight, emerald facets, 
in shadow, grays of blue,
first breaking light of heaven,
tinted sky in tones of shell,
dancing lights, pearl pink and saffron,
fleck the bosom of the swell.
On waves of crisper coral
the majestic sun ship sails,
bright bride aflame in glory
blushed beneath her misty veils.
Such beauty blinds my vision;
my gaze is downward drawn
to vanilla foam soft swirling
in the footprints of the dawn.

Ode to Autumn

Earth’s sphere of fire bids adieu to me

As dying embers gleam across the sea

In rare hues reflected by autumn trees,

Swirling in motion with October’s breeze.

I feel the joy this season has to share

In golden harvest that the branches bear,

And I am thankful for this blessed year,

For divine abundance I share so dear.

The sun and moon take on a special glow

As thunder clouds move swiftly with the flow.

Yes, autumn coaxes feelings to revive,

Those mem’ries of past seasons still alive.

When autumn spreads her dress of lacey frost

I know, in breathless beauty, I’ll be lost.

Sun Dance

~Sun Dancing~         

Bright yellow sparks glisten around the landscape
Sheer environment expose  
Warmth slinks down every step        
So--  Invigorating 
Spur like rays muster in long light
The wolves wait to howl
Soon--Bunch of flowers 
Huddle in with sunlit love
Luminous rave

Sun in - Sun out

 Extreme Sunset

Brimstones past the clouds 
Highlight against the ocean line
Beautiful sunset, warm texture
Warning, the rooster's asleep!

Glorious yellow and orange mixture 
My source of great inspiration
Unmatch - beauty mark In the sky
The horizon is ready for nightfall

Here in Paradise

drips from 
the sky,
and all around me, the world is awash
      in vibrant orange splendor
splashed               with yellow gold

Here in Paradise
   where graceful palms
            lean toward
                   dipping sun
I dip 
     my toes
into the liquid amber of the tide.
     As if to catch the day’s last rays,
I embrace radiance        as it embraces me.

Far off                               in the distance,
the         stretch         of          mountains
         on  a neighboring island
      what remains of the sinking sun.

I have now waded out into the sea. . . 
              my eyes savor
the sky’s color of sweet marmalade
                 and below it,           
         water’s warm honeyed gold
     lapping softly at my shoulders.

         a swarm of  swooping wings
                          bursts from the heavens!

My eyes now feast on hundreds  
                                    and hundreds of dark
      wheeling gulls, 
                               stark against the bright sky -

               the marmalade sunset’s 

surprise finale.

The Solo Dancer - Tanka to Sonnet

Alone atop a hill,
   an ornamental willow
             dances in the breeze.
Long limbs form a lovely gown
    that gracefully sweeps the ground.

Adored by the sun,
    the willow is not weeping.
                        She blooms rosily!
April’s first shower has passed;
       for the sun alone, she shines.

The Solo Dancing Ornamental Tree (new title for the sonnet version)

An ornamental tree with willow leaves
upon a promontory stands alone.
In April’s breeze, each limb, cascading, weaves
with fragrance. She is dancing on her own.

I wonder how she came to be at all.
Her roots lie in a solitary place
where few traverse to spy her - lithe and small -
there moving in rain’s aftermath with glee.

In small degrees, the sun has climbed the sky.
No longer pallid, he is smiling down
upon the swaying willow. By and by,
Her graceful limbs shine like a lacquer gown.

Her lovely blooms have opened to expose
The splendid blush of buds with hue light rose.

Sun Deity

She looks at me with blushing face
At break of day she shyly peeps.
I watch her move with utmost grace
She looks at me with blushing face.
Her lovely smile a warm embrace,
My heart runs fast; it beats and leaps
She looks at me with blushing face
At break of day she shyly peeps.

* In several countries and in Teutonic 
languages the sun is considered female.

The Message in the Sun

I went to the sun for a favor
and asked it to shine only for you
to grant you happiness though you may be sad
bright yellow 'midst so much blue

but when the day decides to end
and the sun sinks and goes away
I give you the moon as a reminder
that my love will never fade

though i can't tell you how much I love you right now
and I can't show you what's in my heart
i hope when you look at the sun and moon
you'll realize we aren't that far apart

warm solar love

a soul orbits 
looking into space
searching beyond
staring at 
an orange full
cold  moon
rising peacefully
into the sea of tranquility
floating air labored
softly gasping for breath
exploding stars
lights up
the sky

wrath of the sun's light
bombards this earth
explosive  fireworks 
pulsing inside  
emotions erupt
bursting solar colours
feelings flare beautifully
flashing the beginning 
of a strong orbiting cycle

magnetic crochet
strongly pulls
gently sewing together
embraces warm rays 
kisses sweetly
with her soft fingers
weaving love deeply
blissfully into 
one's heart

It is quiet now

Honey crisp scent of freedom 
 -hovers and engulfs the air 

Pangs of pleasure peal 
 -the primrose bows her head 

Yellow paints the morning

Pass the Peace Pipe

In the twilight spirits come to play, listen closely to what they have to say. In the early dawn, they will sit with you, and greet the sun that shines anew. As our sacred pipe gets passed around, through billowing smoke, some prayers are found. A ceremonial tradition that honours all things, come join with us as the Great Spirit sings. Enlightenment comes when you open thy heart, it's never too late to make a new start. Beings from the stars will you lend us a hand? To help unite this Earth across every land?

Undying Love

The setting sun swings from gold
To deepen into bloodshot red.
And as I sit alone upon the sand,
Of a long forgotten inlet bay,
I feel its fainting warmth, its ending joy,
As ill-omened gulls glide overhead
And screech away their hideous song.
I gaze into the gathering gloom,
I see your face, lovely and fresh,
And feel your soft and tender skin,
So velvety under my caressing hands;
O how I wish and yearn you were with me
To share the sun's last warm embrace,
To let you mesmerize me with kisses sweet,
To dream with love the night away with me.
Alas it is not to be my love,
For you have gone to far off lands,
There just on the other side
Of the horizon, bleak and dark.
Now our love, like the sinking sun,
Has turned from gold to red,
Only to disperse into a cataclysmic dark.
There's a deep loneliness in my heart,
That spreads like venom into my very soul;
But there is courage too.
For will not the dying sun
Dawn up again next morn?
So I harbor hope about our love,
For sure the tide will turn again
And change again the waning sun
From dying red to fiery gold.
