Harbinger

Deceit o’ bloodred,
Languish droplets bled
Elements purge forlorn
Happily e’er after battle-torn

Cruel lips kiss adieu,
Loathsome toxin askew
Slumber still mercy mine
Ador bore thou decline

Tangled web of lies,
Depths of loveless eyes
Pierced by devious dart,
Enfeeble, tis terse impart

Remiss of presence so
Willful heart nary let go.
Welcome harbinger grim,
Laid broken, weakened dim.

Come hither sweet respite
To thy favor, I so submit.
Love’s demise hardens regret,
Behests reminisce lest I forget.

Belladonna

Lavish wicked exile
Florid amends futile
Beware o’ noxious veins
Fatal nature remains

Faultless lulling bell
Malign lethal quell
Belladonna most fair
Nary mercy to spare

Lavender-hued bane
Deceit assured reign
Hush now carnal lilt
Expiry nigh upon wilt

Ne’er partake blithe sip
Toxic upon mortal lip
Alas formidable jane
Elixir harbors chicane

Nightshade

Femme fatale nightshade bloom
Lustrous pomes sweetly entomb
Heady pungent bouquet
Remedy lover’s grave betray

Come hither, ye toxic potpourri
Banish infernal memory
Florid amethyst grace
Allure belies dual face

Infuse alchemist brew
Terry, not penance due
Smitten vessel begs release
Hasten this affliction peace

Tip chalice to ardor quell
Serenity bids thee back to hell
Notions atone bittersweet
Farewell ebbing heartbeat

Gladiolus

Florid elegance ablush
Nestled in gardens lush
Pigments triumph aplenty
Resilient verdant sentry

Colossal erectile shoots
Ingrain deep abyssal roots
Precious tis platinum spun
Abreast arising sun

Glorious tis supple reign
Aubade beauteous engrain
Vibrant sword lily plant
Borne on Gaia’s decant

Traverse archaic path
Helios waning wrath
Shadows await dusk
Abscond obliging musk

Wasteria

Violaceous lulling bell
 Enchantment be thou spell
Prodigious tortile entwine
Weathered be thy vine

Solstice utmost fair
Lay waste to arctic air
Embedded mossy root
Colossal venue afoot

Keeper of florid bliss
Ambrosia ne’er remiss
Petals supple blush
Lavish wisteria lush

Wispy balsam waft
Caress be e'er soft
Atop verdant bough
Tender be thy sough

Arose

Darkness imbues sunlight,
 Stars adorn pitch of night.
 Pristine as north winds blow,
 Huddled in loam, primroses grow.

Razor clouds streak across sky,
 Starkly bleeding is dawn to eye.
 Sangria balm touches azure skin,
 Contrast like yang and yin.

 Shadows shrink, ignoble retreat,
  Selene, curtsey, obliges defeat.
 Emblazes arise, heat carries,
 Tip to root blushing varies.

Dawn serenades coming day,
 Phoenix arose from ashes of grey.
 Pigments leak from wounded sky,
 Serene, expanse gone awry.

 Restless in sound of silence,
 Darkness stalks with defiance.
 Bated pounce as sun depletes,
 Across waned skies, color secretes.

 Bloom resigns, surrenders,
 Bows to infinite splendors.
Brigand moon ‘neath covert night
 Abscond again, posies light.

Freedom

Battles waged on foreign shore
Brave soldier tis no more
Young adventuresome lad
Relinquished valor all he had

Engraved script, chiseled track
Humble words on ebon plaque
“Here he lay, this noble knave
Honorable tis life he gave”

Danced on edge of sword
Freedom an ultimate reward
Somber elegy, tethered to stone
Countryman’s name unknown

Tattered flag proudly wave
 Lofty wafts upon a grave
Glorify red, white and blue
Call of duty heroes ensue

Dogwood

Born of ignorant sod
King of kings, son of God
Halo crown of thorn
Pivotal pinnacles adorn

Crucifix dogwood tree
Suffer so dire malady
Forge rugged cross
Convey sanctioned loss

Purest blossoms white
Pristine petals alight
Tips in sanguine red
Pierced divine bloodshed

Father's grief enlisted
Boughs gravely twisted
Ne'er again use malice
Hardwood most callous

Heart Shaped

Heart shaped
Coffer caressed
Sanctified with
Angst confessed.
Aplenty times
I've oft spoke
To mahogany
Grains I stroke
There endures
Reminiscence past,
 Promises
Bond to last.
Until death
Do us part,
Engraved on
Bereft heart.
Sometimes it's 
Grief that’ll hold,
Treasures more
Priceless than gold.
Aches that burn
Deeper than pain,
When only 
Ashes remain.

River Lily

River Lily aligns distant shore,
 Nostalgia haunts e’ermore.
Supple petals skyscape hue,
Cruelty plucked heart askew.

Willows bow to infinitely weep,
Cleave beauty, in sodden keep.
Bloom, marred by dire ache,
Dewdrops swell in rolling wake.

River rocks to comfort I assume,
Exult remote, battered bloom
Though, sorrow usher icy chills,
Stoic notions hinder spills.

She yearns summer embrace, 
Sunbeams cure lovely face.
Ardent waters built shrine,
Console her, once she was divine.
