 was a strolling through the heartlands
and you are in the foliage
When I thought of the woodlands
there are the trees never pining
Death shall never come to the maples

That shines like a young sun
Your voice opens locked doors
Your passion is as huge as a baobab shadow

We are sweet seeds, stevia
And cannabis sativa
Yellow butterfly bush
Joined by glowing wings

You are golden marigold
Your eyes the...Read More

Just You
You showed me something 
I never thought I had
U made me travel a path
I wouldn’t otherwise 
Letting go of inhibitions
I found myself 
In you 
A connection unknown 
Where 2 hearts meet 
And it feels like home

Butterfly, Butterfly, Oh! so fair
On gossamer wings you flit on the air
Soaring serenely high up above

See it standing there thinking about me all night
It is shooting up in the air with no limit to bear

Springs Awakenings.
The mottled nibble butterfly
Stretches it’s paper like delicate wings
As the sun casts it’s warm pleasant light
The dainty robin heralds a new day born
And joyfully sings
As another day unfolds
Within the awakening mantel of spring
And a teasing gentle warming breeze
Caresses and...Read More

Waiting in silence for the cosmos to begin

I saw you flash across my dew latticed meadow
Chromatic glare of dawn flushed your satin face
On the flow of time ripple of my moments froze.

The glint of your seraphic eyes glistered on me

I tower above the crumbling ruins
Of a once majestic tower,
Flag and pennant proudly proclaimed 
Pompous claim of pelf and power.

In crumbling  silence relates,
Of transient tenebrous things,
Of fickle times, of fickler...Read More
