I close my eyes and soon drift to another world,
and I find myself in a lush garden;
I hear ocean waves crashing on a shore,
a quiet voice is talking and I say, "pardon?"

Dainty as a maiden embellished in deep violet,
She flutters through grassland, emitting a tangy perfume
And her bodice, luscious, drifts on an organza garment 
That reflects queenly admiration from a sunlight blessed:

How butterflies wheel around this goddess’s appointed space
Cruising, parading to...Read More

Midnight in droplet puddles
murky cobble stone
after a crisp whiz of rain,
men sound left alone.
Portal kept silence
into a magical dew
of faint world's absence.

In french Québec, they put the em-PHASIS on the wrong syl-LABLE

As mauve of autumn waves her velvet cloak
Each treetop, each leaf upturns a  glazed hue:
That  between dusk and morn, the winds evoke
A  heartbeat tempo of evening’s debut--
Oblivious to chills with  beams on oak
Parading their grandeur ,...Read More

Kindness at home breeds love
Keeping family warm…
Kids, parents join hearts to
Knit times with gaiety;
Knowing sweet acts open
Keys of faith…and household
Kneels in worship as one.

In that stillness of a meadow
Quite uncanny yet deep,
When birds were mute and every tree
Gasped  feebly…   all asleep,

Throughout one hazy evening mist
Along my grief’s replay;
The tempo of the air echoed
From crackled weeds  that day.

calm and tender is the night

As clusters of blooms rustle to sashay,
Peonies, roses, and lilies delight
With hints of peach, of gold in fine array!

Their rich fragrance wafts on a summer day
Adorning the lane with dewed petals bright;
As clusters of blooms rustle to sashay.

 Toyota Revo

A four-wheel drive,even purchased as second-hand
Still runs smoothly and safe, never trundles around
With its superlative engine, mileage is grand

I strut the lane of vagrancy
With breaths choking from evening’s plea,
As lampposts dip across the night
When love undone grates my delight;
Reflecting scenes... a cracked marquee.

Trapped in the void of emptied lea
A begging howls... my cries decree
For sparks to glow, to...Read More

Blue tunnel glimmers where dome meets the ray
in cadence of  lulled sleep, its final veil...
the flight grows misty in a blooming sway
as my soul climbs the ladder of bright trail;
where heaven’s portal dips in moonlit spray...

Premium Member RITES OF HARVEST MOON --HexSonnetta

When harvest moon alights,
to sail like gauzy lace
on through a cloud’s embrace...
I watch her mystic rites,
as beaming, she excites
my lithesome hours of grace.

How glorious the view
atop a mountain crowned…
with lilies all around
that settle on her queue,
beguiling eve, anew
when sparklers reach...Read More

The Sweater

To a frigid wind's quiver,
Graces a warm embrace,
Of passion knitted in hot threads,
My sweater hugs his chest,
To a frigid wind's quiver.

Somewhere Back Into The Childhood
Putting a reverse gear,
I'll go back, 
Where no religion or 
Boundaries, could be listed. 
One cared only for dolls.

On the pier
I sit on the pier sad
Imagine I was sun
Solitary, no one
near it, shuns all.

tired evening sun lowers
sea embraces it slow
the salt lessens sun’s glow
it cools in dark.

night sings a lullaby
music plays on the tide
mermaids merrily glide
it must rise strong.
