Dancing with Caution

Aromatically whisking towards leopards bane
Waltzing, being careful to avoid the touch
Hither here step, toe, heel, a scrumptious pain
To tango with the devil's helmet, vomit, double Dutch

A vermilion distillment, a sleepy smile
A foxtrot coalescing with foul swoons
I cannot touch these, a...Read More

complicated by your mysterious eyes and then you smiled my way.
incompliant hair, teased by the brawny solar wind, potently alluring.
my pulse swoons at your flawless turquoise eyes, their iconic sway.

Life of a bird that swoons high above
Singing this tune of true love

Chirping and cheeping 

This Love from above
Singing among the clouds

May I take your hand and hold it
As a wing holds a dove
High above the clouds

Let anger not clip...Read More

Too late to bind old wounds
Words meant so much to him too
The punchy lyric told you what to do
It was what he wanted to say
Instead of just wasting it anyway

Here was where he made his stand
The solitary one in his plan
Too far...Read More

More Than An Inferno
It is not light that falls before these eyes,
blue as ocean's dream,
that allows me to see, 
beyond such a simple breeze

where whitest whites make way
for jaded bliss
a brilliance brighter than my sun
or of your moon

it is honey that coats the...Read More

Premium Member DREAMS OF SPRING
waning of blue sky,
as my eyes succumb to sleep —
awakened by dreams

the barenaked bark,
handsome in its lichen state —
soft are its feathers

the long limbs of oaks
stretch in coalescent prayers
and mystical hymns

in darkness of womb,
rosebuds like a babies fist —
the birthing...Read More

Rising at twinkling twilight, oh what a serendipity sight!
Laughing lapis rays play with settling setting sun
Trees breeze, reaching with their seeking bold boughs
Moody mist twists with blooming blues of haunting hues
All together singing a cyan song with sapphire fire
Suddenly, full...Read More

VIRTUES OF CHEESE
A day without Cheese is not a day worth living in
Despite my high cholesterol, I will pop another statin in
The texture, the flavour, the smell, the pure cheesiness

The dark night reveals a silhouette beneath the stars and moon.
Her curves are alluring as my heart quickens and spirit swoons.

Moon,
Lord of light,
Protector of the night,
You light the flame
That has no name
Inside my daughter's heart.

Like a full grown coyote.

She sways and swoons

HUNGARIAN RHAPSODY

Her hand’s swan-like dance,
ivory shadow puppets
romance. Hungarian rhapsody.

The musician sans existence
as emotive fingers move
imaginary marionettes
with splendiferous precision.

Drama drops onto piano keys
occasionally taking a gentle stroll
then in sensuous sway, sashaying
like an exotic dancer. The musician

plucks and plinks as if
with chameleonic...Read More

The Kingfisher
Blue dulcet, spread out and new
soaring high across a glidden sky
entranced by dire drips of green
singing out another moonlit lullaby

wings dipped in search of a sullen you
reaching out to where oceans walk
hearts wait,...Read More
