Kurt floats on bubble wrapped ice-cream in marshmallow guise

Swathed in a blanket of temptation he drifts on the sweet taste

White tender bliss cushioned in pink illusions of sugary dreams

Caress his saddle as he straddles a unicorn feathered in utopia

Deep in her sleep, the Princess mystically dreams.

Of dancing with bangled diamond and ruby bound ankles,

Upon satin pillows for her king.

She's swathed in opaque rainbow colors.

An opaque veil covering her face.

Her big brown eyes not for even one second,

Wander from...Read More

Mint Duet

Tongues swathed in mint
  Trestlework of undulation
    Swoosh of utter breezes
      The cool tingling sensation

Rush of adrenalin,
lifting his shirted-scent
to my nose -
soaked in apropos,
making love
to my endorphins.

The stir and footfall
from downstairs - his lair,
even when he’s not there,
for I can hear his heart beat
miles and miles and miles away.

Tongues swathed in mint,
trestlework of...Read More

~they embraced in their dalliance~
her appetency held a depth so deep he just couldn’t 
resist placing his hands around her barren waste
(she reaches for him with ardor)

for tonight was auspicious and ebullience showered 
them with the twinkles only stardust spreads;

Juxtaposition I

Like the light'ning in crazed velocity, 
The dame, swathed in fury, charged at him. 
Humiliating his giant courage, 
As his soles had the loyal earth betrayed. 

Charged she continuously at the baffled, 
Veiled to him: the stir of the race...Read More

He was jaded with prostitutes.
The young ones were vacuous,
their bodies unleavened bread.
The mature models scored
by the violence of disappointment.
Both the naive and the world-weary
were dull molds.

The sculptor and anatomist, 
delved deeply into the inquiry of form.
As an artist he craved...Read More

I just am breathless here with you!
Swathed under secret, silken sheets.
Blessed as babes in a warm autumnal 
I exist from this insane yet tender 

Just to listen to the echo of your eternal
With its own Hellenic beat.
Such is my fate, my...Read More

Arabella’s 18th birthday
Darling granddaughter of mine
A special treat
A unique ‘do’
A celebration for just us two
At a perfect place I knew

Board a train to the metropolis
hail a cab through London’s streets
we approach our destination
and our excitement soars
With a welcome smile

Owned - Mental Abuse
To portray a different facet
That the outside world believe
A spectacle a performance
A web of lies spun to deceive

Chastised another day now
This pattern is well worn
Tolerance my saviour
Of a life threadbare and torn

Know not to voice opinion
Nor bring attention my way

poesie slumbers
quietly breathing
swathed in white noise 
deep in reverie

poesie trances
in an English garden
picture windows
take after an Anglian sky

poesie rolls over
on freshly cut grass 
hedged in by Japanese Quince
the color of wild things waking

poesie sighs deeply
someone's pestering
a spiny shrub grows taller

An unexpected kiss,  in the twilight
you held me warm and tenderly with each embrace
you allowed my eyes to close and wander in endless dreams

how long did your eyes ask to be kissed?
at first glance or the last dance?

Christmas Love
When all the town was swathed in dark,
she took a walk towards the park,
and sat upon a bench to ponder
the things that made her heart grow fonder.

She smiled at last, despite herself,
and realised she loved an elf;
she'd met him, at...Read More

A helmsman, steering his ship 
Chasing the glorious light of day
Success and justice wreathed 
In the yellow-orange flames of morning

He wakes to the same dream
Every day spent steering 
His ship of passengers
"My life is spent in dedicated service
To the people...Read More

Crackling, crunchy leaves, confetti the ground
as bare skeleton trees rattle their bones.
And gusty winds howl like a soulful hound
while kids mope indoors glued to their cellphones.
Indistinguishable, they look like clones,
acting as enthusiastic as stones.

Winter's approach is seen as a bad...Read More

Space Walk
Slipping free, I step toward the stars.
All around I see the endless rush of eternity.
Wobbly and ungainly, I turn toward that bluest
Of marbles.  Home, swathed in creamy clouds;
Swirling amidst the lashing seas.

My foot steps on nothingness, but feels like...Read More

I swear
Don't ask your heart,
Don't blame it,
Don't chastise your heart,
Don't scorch it,
Make yourself assured
You grasped a true love,
That would never short,
Because I made it as hard love.

I will fill each hole of your heart
To have it eternally to my heart
I swear...Read More

A Bounteous Harvest
(my acknowledgement 
to the loose canon of Robert Frost)

An above average snowfall
heavily swathed sage heather 
followed by substantial unusual rainfall
punctuated months before, during and
after the growing season

delivered one of the
most hearty crop yields
in living memory 
within the generations of men

With your realms of dreams, I yearn to be
To satisfy time's need for our desire
We'll be vagabonds not wanting to flee
And veil the sun,  beneath the shaded tree
Swathed by snug arms of comfortable fire

The Salton Sea
The air is parched and crinkled, heavy with no place to go; with no sense of time, hanging suspended over the Salton Sea,
100 hundred miles in the middle of nowhere. 

A flat blue sky, swathed in pillows of hazy clouds...Read More

Lion And Lamb
I sat at the shore at the
Break of the day. When the,
Sun steals from the vast curtain of nature,
Peeping through human infrastructures.
When I saw,a lamb beyond the transculent
Measuring the path of the pompous forest,
Chewing cud in it mouth,It's mother did...Read More

El par
Power stood at the shore of fury,
Wisdom in innocence beholding,
What war would wrought,
Bleeding sole and such sort.
The former,drunk in pride:
Folly took him on ride.
The latter swathed in humility:
Whatever perchance wroughts her duty.
Then when by fist power is eased,
And the motion...Read More
