Premium Member Fly, Not As I
Vapor trails of jetting Jets
Pattern the dawn blue sky;
I gaze unseeing the passengers
With courage to fly, not as I.

Without firm ground beneath my shoes,
Fear straddles my old shawled shoulders.
Is this what it is, I muse
To be “older” and growing “older.”

As in the fabled medieval times of centuries in the deep past,
It’s time once again to celebrate the hidden ugly horror that
Seeks to infest and devour all human souls in this new century.

Premium Member Fair branches and forest shade
Centre of this galaxy 
through the darkness you came 
shawled by your presence entirely

From the ancient tree of wisdom growing wise 
The righteous flourish like the palm
at the foothill carved on its bark

Where the birds will nest finding shelter
under the...Read More

Premium Member Deep Soft Trickles
Softly touching deep cords vibrate within,
The song within my heart with golden notes begin.

As sadness flows trickling In Cello magic,
Soul's storm It Is flowing In Violin tragic.

Like a river babbling wild free,
The heart has no bounds where Love has to...Read More

The Old Woman
Shawled against 
the damp night chill,
she waits
slumped low, 
crumbled
in her favorite chair.
Old and tired 
she waits.
Eyes, once bright, 
cast a milky stare 
blind to all 
but distant memories 
and moments carved 
treasured wooden dolls 
faces and form 
now whittled away
unrecognizable.

Dark Paradise
As we departed for a long journey,
My heart punned with jocundity,

Had heard a lot about its beauty,
But didn’t know, will ‘be welcomed so haughtily,

As I propelled on non-native soil,
It seemed so preposterously royal,

Still there, ah I missed my home,
Oh where...Read More

Premium Member hiding in shadows
fog slowly dropping
eerily rolling out 
a dense blanket
begins spreading
creeping over ground
invading forces

her cold fingers
twisting knots
touching slowly
trembles deeply
shivering in body
rattle bones
into the spine

dark souls dance
in a grey area 
clouds eyes 
without shadows
onlooking feasting sinners
within shawled emotions

casting black
falling  feelings
of moist darkness

Premium Member touching
softly touching (I feel a stir...)
upon keys
a piano speaks
in cello
fluttering chords
tugs strings 
deep within
(a deep tingling sensation within...)

sadness flows (My eyes tracing...)
dancing with emotion
feelings flowing
a river
joining hearts
flowing an ocean
in salted emotions
(a focused soul with open arms...)

Premium Member who gave wings
i feel love 
those words 
hold my tongue
to touch 
stroking upon chords
soul moving
softly whispering
in a breeze

a shawled echo
held deep iside
sweetest music
caressing upon
the strings
touching sands
of one
deepest ocean
love begins
to shine

in you
my direction
sailing emotions
cry out 
a name
dancing feelings
growing wings
to one
so sweet and beautiful

Dusk's Sacred Shawl

Please do not convince me of my ignorance or naivety.
Naive to the cynic, the sun sets on my faith and all my eyes see.
Eyes see bright visions of dusk's inner beauty wrapped in sacred shawl.
The sacred shawled in heavenly grace,...Read More

Soft Winds of Camiguin
Fanning out like a preening peacock's tail,
  the shimmering palm trees line up the shore
    as if screaming out to the waves, "encore!"

Yonder, draped and shawled in moist, dark-green moss,
  stands tall a majestic mahogany,
