Blood Colors and Tears

Red roses in the dead of winter. 
Hard to find, 
a costly extravagance. 

Cancer…

Changes the price of the moment, 
and the very value of our 
existence.

Disarray

Within huge caverns of my disarray
fly interpreting birds with rainbow wings
well sung arrow-shot words, vanquish the grey
while they fly about, dawn's gleaming rays sing!

This radiant scene, stirs a weeping heart
as morn's bright colorful songbirds appear
red roses preen, as throat'ed music...Read More

Together Until the End
We met when I was just thirteen.
You found me there—
Alone in the cold, numbing blizzard
They clung to each other for warmth
But you found me there—
Trembling and weak from the cold,
And you clung to me. 

Your advances unsettled me at first.

A hundred years of praying,
A hundred years of song,
A hundred years' faith conveying,
And all the days were long!

A hundred years of fireflies,
A hundred years of red roses,
A hundred years of marmalade skies,
And God's love engrosses!

Another One Down
And another one bites the dust. 

Marriage. 
My friend, my neighbor, the lady next door, 
Rampant miscalculations of being too nice, 
two people that complain, endlessly.

She does not do enough. 
I have not had “any” in weeks.

Dark Times

Times we celebrate, to be who we are not. 
Bleak times, diseased remembrances. 
Why?
You know.
You know because deep inside…

You have hid under a blanket as a kid, 
and walked quietly down the hall, later on.
Tried not to be seen,...Read More

Cleaning the church is a privilege. 
I go every Saturday, humbly to serve. 
It is not a boast, it is small gratitude paid,

The morning came early. 
In fact I was up all night.

Premium Member My Rose Bushes

Rose bushes in the front of my blue house
stand trimmed, and not one flower peeks its head,
so I no longer need to give a douse
of water to the bushes; they’ve been bled
of all their lovely hues. I miss them so!

urban walk
urban walk:

struggling to swim
on concrete 

i watch
hallucinations

in my brain
enjoying visions

of mystical gardens
where playful deer

eat pink and red roses.
i return

feeling ominous glimpses
of a scarred homeless man

and notice the musical staves
of lonely telephone lines.

stumbling over
roots and shadows.

gleaming trees lovely
in afternoon’s slant.

My one true love is sadly gone,

Lust
Is but 
Red roses
And fairy tales
The heart oozes for but a warm embrace 

At its core the bloom desires treasure
Muddy puddles
Sandcastles 
Laughter
Delights

Buds
Blossom
Belonging 
Security 
Not thirst, craving and ache , such is not love

The art of love is largely the art of persistence.
The rose speaks of love silently, in a language known only to the heart.
A single rose can be my garden.a single friend, my world.

Butterflies
Butterflies are calm, sweet, and kind.
They flutter to each detailed flower,
They have bright and colorful wings.
They make me smile on warm spring days.
They wave hello on sunny days,
They hide away on dark, gray days.
On spring mornings as flowers bloom.
They glide...Read More

She wore red roses in her raven hair,
And sang old sad romantic songs,
She was young and very beautiful.

She thought roses were so beautiful
That she wore them always in her hair,
As she sang those old romantic songs.

Night sculpts new day;
Pregnant with hope

Change in sepia tones; 
Abrupt departure

Vivid pictures slant;

Heartfelt home..
Evergreen trees..
A rose garden..
Joyous pink roses..
Roses of yellow spreading sunshine..
On an overcast day..
Red roses of pure love..
Where the heart sings a soulful song

Heartfelt home..
A woodsy crackling fireplace..
Fragrant scents of musk.
Stirring emotions..
Nostalgia catches waves of memories..

Heartfelt home..
Cozy filled with love..
