Seashore Flowers

Honeysuckle by the sea
lupine blue and wild sweet pea
buttercups and hare bell fair
tiny daisies for my hair
kissed by winds
of salted spray
sweetest bloom of the day
flaxen sea oats
bend their heads
anchored in their sandy beds
purple vetch's tendrils creep
through watery graves
where starfish sleep
silent ocean bed of glass
awaits the twilight time to pass
so to greet the shadowed moon
hear the distant lonely loon
seaside flowers will slumber nigh
under stars in evening sky
pinkest sunset will adorn
evening clouds for next day's morn..

Valentine Rejection

Roses are red and pink and yellow
Go find yourself another fellow

You promised you'd lose a ton of weight
By February of 2008

I don't want a gal in a size forty dress
If I wanted a monster, I'd visit Loch Ness

So very good wishes on this Cupid's Day
Go look for a guy who cares not what you weigh

The Lovers

Silver butterflies fell from his mouth
when he spoke her name
and away they fluttered
through the pink afternoon
and circled the maiden 
who slept beneath the willow
through her raven hair they laced
while in dreams she met him
as through the blaze of sunset they rode..

The Affair

Closing the silk curtains quietly
She lays down in the curve of his back
Oh, the sinful joy of stolen hours
The soft warmth of human flesh
Clean and sweet as billowing sheets
In a summer wind 
As sleek as a forest beast, his back an
Unblemished canvas on which to 
write her thoughts or trace her fingernails
In a beautiful dance like skaters on 
A frozen pond
In the rthymn of sleep she watches 
His shoulder rise and fall oblivious to
Her presence and thoughts of his
Woman waiting patiently behind homemade
Curtains which dance in the evenig breeze
Pulling the sheet up to her chin she covers both
Of them and closes her eyes.

The Dove Tree

A flock of Christmas doves
carried a turquoise veil
through a white winter sky
and found a willow tree
weeping and alone 
in the cold of a December day

The veil was pinned in the sky
and twenty five doves
alit in the bare branches 
so the tree was no longer alone
as it listened to the song
of the doves in the chilled morning air..

The Homeless

Twas the night before Christmas
He sat near the street
With his dog in a blanket
Warming his feet

The sidewalk was cold
His windbreaker thin
He longed for a scarf
To cover his chin

He wished that his pants
Were free of the holes
And dreamed of new shoes
Without paper soles

He played his violin
With a melancholy ring
Like the sound of an angel
Which made the heart sing

Where once he had played
To whomever he choose
But his life took a turn
When he fell for the booze

The snowflakes fell softly 
And peppered his hair
As he faintly heard carols
In the soft evening air

He counted his money
And wrapped up the dog
Shouldered his knapsack
And walked through the fog

Tomorrow was Christmas
To him one more day
To walk in the streets
With his violin to play

Hallmark moments

Hallmark moments:
 
I like your face
Your flaxen hair
Your remind me of 
My old grey mare
 
You skin is soft
Your eyes are blue
But I hear you wear
A size twelve shoe
 
I see your mother
In your face
Remind me not 
to forget my mace
 
You are a special 
love, my hon
If only you didn't
weigh a ton
 
You are the fairest
of all maids
Its such a shame
You gave me Aids
 
Your Gothic look
and tasty lips
Make me want
to bring my whips
 
You left me on
that April day
I never dreamed 
You might be gay
 
You made me
swoon
You made me sigh
I never thought
you were a guy

Powder puff moon

A powder puff moon
hangs in a languid sky
gathers stardust from the milky way
and airbrushes the faces of passing angels

Summer's Farewell

On a fading stage of August
Lady summer reluctantly sheds
Her emerald robes of a dying season
As the blazing Autumn stands
In the wings 
Adorned in her gown
Of russet and gold
Awaiting her debut - 
Her opening night
Of an illustrious September

The Man in the Moon

The Man in the moon
With the smiling face
Appeared through clouds
Of tattered lace

He blew a kiss
To the twinkling stars
And gave a wink 
To his good friend Mars

Filled his glass
from the milky way
To give to the sun
At the break of day

Tipped his hat
To Venus so bright
Most regal star
That shone in the night

Silvery orb that 
hangs in sky
Lives eternal
As years go by

When we die 
And leave this earth
 Others will claim
Their rightful birth

That mystery moon
Will still abide
And change its
Rythmn with  trembling tide
