Time
Time, a human creation,
Other animals know of no such thing,
Time a simple thing, that rules our nation....

Day Comes
The dawn breaks, I rise up to greet the day
My sleep, though dreamy and peaceful, I must leave
For I must go back to reality....

Class Time Prisoner
I am stuck here in this class, a prisoner but without a crime,
Time slows to a crawl, and day by day we go,
Stuck here in this invisible slime....

window to the soul
may not be done with mirror
choose some quiet place
eyes closed    body relaxed
you looking at you    just light

I Still Live
`Till I stop breathing, I won`t stop living. Basking in the sun`s warmth, proof that I still feel. So long as my heart beats, I`ll always dream.

Shama's Dilemma limerick
There once was a girl named Shama
Who wondered about her karma
As a poet her rhymes
Were always out of time
To most her terza rima was trauma

As the living water
Moves within streams 
falling down from the mountain source 

Baptising love in crystal light 
With burning flames inside the soul 
For keeps each word holds reverence to your name...

Low Tide
...comes now the ebb,

         between twigs, someone spins
  
               its silken web...


...brown twigs are such

         one's fingertips desert

               their sense of touch..!...

Premium Member Baptism Of Faith
A symbol
of our creation 
is the birth of love

One heavenly gesture 
complete encompassing 
one's heart 

In divine purity 
embraces the darkness with warm light 
within our spiritual being

Unrhymed tercets...

Premium Member You came to me an angel dressed in light
The moon with a full smile beams 
cradled inside the golden ring around 
stars twinkle entering one vision 

Cut from the clearest crystals 
baptised through the oceans mist 
held on the throne crowning beauty

PRIMORSKAYA APRIL
PRIMORSKAYA    APRIL


Trees are lost in the misty river’s sweep,
Tall buildings disappear
In the still chill of morning.


Below the glassy surface of the deep
And horizontal water,
The cold sun is swimming.

Fire Does Not Sleep
Still; my soul is graced
Breath of heaven falls
Kissed upon my face

Risen, yet to fall
Swell to flow out
Silence speaks it all

A spirit in drought
Finds the water deep
Never to run out

Fire does not sleep
Fallen yet to leap...

comes now the ebb,

      between twigs, spider spins 

            its silken web...



                  for brown leaves are such,

                        fingertips desert 

                              their sense of touch !...

Premium Member The periwinkle
In italian “winkle” is like a verb
Imperative exhorting then to win
Exalting thus the strength of the nice herb.

If in winter looks like it's dry within
You see it back with its sky blue flowers
And quite sudden resurrected has been.

Asunder
We are not 
Willing to be a hut
With a hailing, haunting history

Our fallen fathers fought for a golden glory
And our martyred mothers sealed the sacred story

With our hands and heart tied together
We’ll never break our border
Asunder.

Between
An eager eye in space
Search high and low
Long to see the face

Search a thousand rows
From the sky to ground
Hill to peak of snow

All that I have found
Is nothing to be seen
Faint; a growing sound

You have always been
Here I stand between

Premium Member Angel of light
Whispers out of night 
When the rising sun 
began to awaken her eyes

Dawning golden warm holds breath
deeply delicious waves colours 
expelling darkness beholding

Priceless the light 
that touches down softly 
beautiful dream gently kisses

unrhymed tercets...

MOTHER
MOTHER


People often cry 

And ask when does life begin? 

Does the answer lie 



With  clinical exactitude?

With  religious dogmatism?

With legal  certitude?


With political correctness, or  other?

No,  the simple fact is that

Life begins  with the word mother

Ripple of Silence

I stare long and hard at nothing,
           still can't figure out something,
                         her whisper lingers long and lilting


                         like an old song of youth haunting,
           echoing away as a ripple of silence
and I forget all hurts and violence!...

That perfect moment. Quintessential moment in time Vibes in exquisite harmony The planets all aligned Eyes that glow Senses heightened Feelings flow Mind enlightened So rarely felt …so sorely missed So primal and so potent Evanescent as morning mist …elusive perfect moment…

Candid
So tired she thought it best
to wear her heart on her sleeves
and get things off her chest

Ignored a notion preconceived
that living like an open book 
would only make her more naive

She said if they simply take another look
they'll see a clear transparency
and just maybe, let me off the hook...

Premium Member Ghost of your presence enters
Each night when looking into the night sky 
there faraway it remains always that star sparkling 
Breathless echoes enchanting whispers escape

Back over moonbeams floating within the cradle held 
Inside the mirrored reflections dancing upon waves 
starry eyed pearls colour from the rainbow out love...

ALMOST SPRUNG
ALMOST    SPRUNG

Cheek and chin begin to thaw
Face is bitten now no more
By the wind’s sharp tooth and claw

Robins sing from branch-bare bush
Ducks scrape hopefully in the slush
Into the ice their beaks they push

The birds are not mistaken
My face’s no longer aching
Winter’s grip is shaken

Asperger's --WORK IN PROGRESS--
Contemplative, taciturn
Willing to commit
An immutable zeal to learn
Endowed with acerbic wit
Endless potential
But having few outlets, to express it
Seemingly aloof or deferential
Unintentionally causing pain
Coming off inconsequential
An indelible stain
Easily misunderstood
Without composure refrained...
