Dew - June 30, 2010


Can you see the precious releases as they dissipate
Inviting ardent admiration from us all
Appeasing the beseeching eyes of so many of us here
In the scattered dispersing of their fall

Such luminous wonders sustained by minute gestures
Of clarity in their mystical opaque releases
Appearing at first glimpse to stream from above
As if from the floodgates of secret places

A bountiful acclaim can be seen in the new animation
Of the recipients of these precious releases
As they blissfully absorb new life into their essence
Pleasing our eyes, with a beauty that never ceases

Makeup - June 29, 2010


There is a face in the mirror intently staring back at you
Attempting to recognize the one it views
You are spellbound for one quick moment, in such wonderment
As your eyes meet, and you both realize that it is you

Was it not just yesterday that you were young and naive
Without the wisdom you now hold in your eyes
Now a stranger is boldly looking back with an unflinching gaze
Brazenly daring you to try her on for size

You briefly pause in sheer amazement at these eyes you see
Beaming back at you with a strength unknown
You smile in appreciation and accept yourself as your own
Sit up proudly and put your makeup on

Lonely Halls of Fame - June 28, 2010

Lonely Halls of Fame
Whoever would want a heart that does not belong to them
Is this not asking for a world of pain
A bittersweet induction into the hall of fame
Where lonely tears of sadness and regret are contained

Why ever do we long for the one who can never be our own
With the knowledge that their heart is not free
Perhaps we think in time we can change their mind
If our adoring heart, they will only see

There are so many lonely hearts existing in this world
Ever searching for someone to call their own
Now if they can ever catch the eye of the ones who cry
Perhaps neither one of them would have to be alone

If you happen just to find, your heart is one of these
Ever roaming these lonely halls of fame
Instead of wasting all your precious time in sadness and regret
Step out and find a heart that feels the same

Never To Be Defined - June 27, 2010

Never To Be Defined

Collected skeins of unraveled words drift along in space
Existing in the complexity of time
Bits and pieces of exchanges between two hearts
Containing the mysteries of their rhyme

Sweetness held in close regard never to be revealed
Lies waiting between each and every line
Of the secrets that the words themselves contain
Safely locked away to never be defined

Time will ever hold these words in its warm embrace
As a divine reminder of a love so true
A legacy to only be unraveled by two loving hearts
Exchanging words of love the way we do

These skeins of unraveled words exist here in this time
Complex and yet so simple in their truth
Rhyme, reason, or their secrets, are not to be defined
Until read, by two hearts in love so true

Refine - June 26, 2010


Promises made beneath the moonlight amass in unison
To sing their entrancing song to the stars
Intoxicating lyrics so sweetly sung in harmony
Persuades the most radiant one to brightly beam from afar

Such alluring suggestions ring throughout each stanza
Compelling the brightest star to outshine
Each of its bright companions with its luminous light
As its own shining radiance, it refines

Reaching out into the heavens, the star beams with delight
Burning with all the essence it holds inside
Awaiting all the promises made beneath the moonlight
Anxiously hoping that its light does not subside

I Lie In Wait - June 25, 2010

 I Lie In Wait

My bow and arrow I have with me
All ready set in place
To use the very next time I see
Cupid's smiling face

I lie in wait expectantly for him
An ambush I have prepared
No sleep will these eyes of mine have until
His arrows of love I have shared

The very first moment I see him approach
Smiling and wielding his bow
I will draw back with my own true aim
Catch him with his own arrow

Then I will stand with a smile of my own
What a sight to behold it shall be
To watch Cupid fall in love himself
And see how it feels to be me

Serenity - June 24, 2010


Serenity infuses an unbounded peace that flows within
A refuge in unwavering tranquility
Possessing an intensity so luminous and warm
Breathed into the very soul of me

As I reduce the rate of speed, in which my world spins
A calming glow emanates from me
Enlightening my very essence from the peace, I feel within
Releasing all my fears into the breeze

I look into the evening's glow as the sun sets in the West
While crimson shades of amber flood my sight
And I release the stresses of my day with the setting sun
While breathing in the peace of the coming night

I have found my refuge in unwavering tranquility
In the calmness of the ending of my day
Serenity, which is boundless, has infused my very soul
As I quietly watch, my worries slip away

Wandering Soul - June 23, 2010

Wandering Soul

The shifting sands beneath my feet caress my wandering soul
Inciting in me the urge to roam and stray
Each grain invokes a message that whispers to my feet
Enticing me to visit untried places faraway

The warmest breezes brush my face and motivate me onward
To explore this world and see what I can find
Persuading me to listen as they sing into my senses
That just to stay here in this place, will keep me confined

I look up into the bluest skies and see a soaring eagle
And listen as I hear him bravely calling out to me
To follow in his path and look out through his eyes
Inviting me to fly so high and free

In these shifting sands of life I wander through each day
Taking step by step, come what may
I pray to always be motivated to explore untried spaces
And that my heart will never be lead astray

Idle Hands - June 22, 2010

 Idle Hands

She drew a small circle in the burning sands of time
To convey her vehement message of truth
A merit so worthy of honor and praise from the ones
Who gathered to survey her prelude

They watched as she tenderly touched each grain of sand
With her fingertips, so delicately fine
Each one holding their breath to see what would happen
Wondering if the circle would affect their own time

Each delicate movement, each brush of her fingers
Brought forth new triumphant sighs
As each relieved eye in the crowd looked and cheered on
When no change to themselves was applied

In one final swift movement she finished with flourish
The small circle she had drawn with her hands
And the world as they knew it disappeared into nothing
Like the sands of time, they allowed her to command

Chaos - June 21, 2010


Drifting fragments of havoc float listlessly along the laughter
Echoing gently through all the minute strands
As well calculated overtures of bursts of opposition
Seeking an innocent quarry to command

Disconnected vagrants, sages of confusion
Erratically whisper in your ear
To yield to all the chaos floating on the laughter
Inviting you to exist among their fear

Such skillful masters of perplexity exist as bits of havoc
Offering up confusion to us one and all
Will you listen to the whispers offered in the laughter
Or turn your head and disregard their call

These drifting bits of havoc though laughing may appear
To float listlessly without a single care
Are searching for a quarry, to sink their laughter in
A victim to exist, in their chaotic fear

Simplicity - June 20, 2010


The statuesque stones were once placed in a circle so grand
Safely surrounding the secrets hidden within
Perchance as protection from the distribution of inequity
That raged from the inner recesses of man

An infinite hedge of fortification so majestic in its defense
Still stands proudly holding all the secrets within
Perhaps of the cycles of life or passing of time
Heatedly debated for ages by man

So many have come to observe this mystical circle
To meditate upon its original plan
Oblivious to the fact that what could be so simple
Can often be perplexing to man

These statuesque stones still bravely defend the secrets
While the mystified onlookers stare
Believing if the reason were simple for their existence
It would be such a sad and distressing affair

Say No - June 19, 2010

Say No

You have been broken in so many places
At times right in two
Why is it then that each time you mend
More breakage you pursue

I have glued you together with all of my tears
Thinking perhaps this time you will learn
Yet you continue to go out and get hurt
Crying because you were burned

Thinking I could toughen you up a bit
Against you I did conspire
I froze you like a block of ice
In response you jumped right in the fire

Now I do not know what to do with you
You aggravate me so
I suppose I will just keep fixing you
Until you learn how to say no

Awake - June 18, 2010


I see the crystallized plumes of my breath
Circle lazily through the moonlight
As a torrent of images from another place and time
Surrounds my waking spirit with their flight

Desire was a word that had no meaning
Until these images embraced my very essence
Now I am moved like the hypnotic motion of the sea
As I am vividly reminded of your presence

The air is heavy with the scent of oncoming yearning
Enhancing the sweet flavor of the memory of the pleasure
Of your mouth and skin against my own
I can no longer breathe, much less in equal measure

This sweet recollection dissolves all my inhibitions
Sweet modesty flees from my soul
As I recall the unearthly music we made in our love
When your kindred spirit held mine long ago

No Expectations - June 17, 2010

No Expectations

I rest upon the windowsill of life's great expectations
Watching as the world spins by so fast
Not blinded by all the well established estimations
The world brings into our vision from the past

Curiosity and depth of soul have made me who I am
Proudly resting in my own individuality
Watching with no expectations from the windowsill of life
Freely existing in my own personality

Who you are and what you do is of great interest to my soul
Yet I have no expectations of you my friend
I am so very happy to watch you from the windowsill of life
Free to be the individual you hold within

If you will come and sit beside me and rest upon life's windowsill
We will watch together as the world spins by so fast
Just accept me as I am and I will do the same for you
Such a splendid friendship we will have

Release of the Spirit - June 16, 2010

Release of the Spirit

So broken and shattered you yield to the pain
Which envelops your spirit from within
As you cling to the inevitable resolve you now have
To remain imprisoned by the very chains which you defend

Completely ensnared in your incessant vigilance to endure
You are steadfast and true to the end
But a victory you may never see in this time
Or your freedom, regain back once again

You now lie to yourself and paint a vision untrue
A beautiful picture with change in the hue
Knowing all the while, the shades will remain the same
As long as there is no change inside of you

Go and gather the pieces and patch them together
You will find a fit that is perfect for you
Release your spirit from this imprisoning snare you defend
To yourself, be ever steadfast and true

The Truth Beneath the Rose - June 15, 2010

The Truth Beneath the Rose

There lies a bitter truth beneath the rose
Which one is not always able to see
As their eyes cannot see past, the beauty of the face
Which hides the stinging truth that lies beneath

The deepest passion radiates from eyes that glow and shine
Into those of quickly pursuing souls
Warming their hearts but not warning their minds
Of the piercing thorns that lie beneath the rose

Their hands so swiftly reach to touch the loveliness they see
As their eyes are blinded to the thorns that lie beneath
She has captured many, holding wisdom great and true
Yet only thorns into their hearts did she bequeath

Take caution when you reach for the sweetest rose
With petals as soft as the morning dew
This loveliness you see, deceptively hides what is beneath
The sharpest thorns, may lie in wait there, just for you

A Forgotten Era - June 14, 2010

A Forgotten Era

There are tantalizing visions of an era long forgotten
By the ones who remember the days
Of sweet music that drifted onto the verandahs
Into the imaginations and hearts of the ones who played

Echoing laughter resounds from ivy covered walls
Touched by the distant memories that pass
Through the cracks left unnoticed by the shimmers of light
As they fall on the sweet summer grass

A wild crimson rose still grows upon the dim edges
Of the latticework now peeling with age
A remnant of immense beauty so pristinely perfect
Still opening its blooms to the stage

Incessant tales of the wonderful feelings brought to light
As the lovely music lifts to the sky
Brings every heart to sing as if they know the tune
Which these memories have left you and I

Blank Canvas
I am a canvas for your imagination
You can paint me as you will
Use any color or variation
You can paint me like you feel

Choose from your many brushes
Any style you like will do
Just paint me as you please
I will be a picture for you

Mix and match your palette of colors
Choose what you like best
Paint me like you feel
With your splendid strokes of zest

You can display me for your pleasure
Hang me upon your wall
Frame me as your treasure
That you are proud to show to all

Inspiration - June 12, 2010


Angelic sounds fill the earth from every side you see
Lovely music made to thrill the soul's desires
A lilting melody played upon the harps of purest gold
That melts your heart and lifts your spirits higher

Melodic strains of beauty rare float upon the skies
Contained in each soft sweep of angel wings
Brushing hearts once so cold and bare
Now inspiring them to sing

Lyrical passion thrills these souls with the softest shout
Racing through their hearts like darts of fire
The sound which only new love can bring
From a heart that's been inspired

You - June 11, 2010


Seduced by words of philosophy
From your nimble mind
My heart hangs on to every word
That you teach to mine

Held captivated by your knowledge
Your passion and your charm
You had touched the very soul in me
Before you held me in your arms

The very fact that you are a vision
For my eyes to see
Only makes me want you more
Forever yours I will be

You have seduced my mind
And captured every part of me
Forever you will find
You are in the heart of me

Stolen Pride - June 10, 2010

Stolen Pride

A magical spell weaved deeply into your soul
Controlling your every desire and wish
Has taken your dignity like a thief in the night
And left you alone in the midst

You sing to the shadows that cling to the walls
Of the empty caverns left there inside
That once held the lifeblood of freedom's design
That poured into the veins of your pride

A wistful whisper of longing is heard in the night
A deep echo resounds through the skies
As you cry to the stars and the moon up above
To send down relief from your plight

Now the night finds you traveling to places unknown
To fill this emptiness from which you try to hide
While the skies rain down tears of anguish and pain
Into the hollow caverns of your stolen pride

Inhibitions - June 09, 2010


The chains that bind have shattered now and rusted clean away
No longer will they hold your life or you
As droplets formed upon the grass, they have dissipated
Leaving freedom's bell to ring so clear and true

Look yonder to the great blue skies and spread your tiny wings
Soar high and free upon the whistling winds
Journey far away from here and discover who you are
While learning how to exist in your own skin

Perhaps you will learn as days go by and hold this truth to you
Those chains that bound you never did exist
Except only in your mind, along with your inhibitions
And the views, which you have now dismissed

A day will come when you may fly right back here to me
Perhaps you will gently light upon my hand
Stay with me for a while and watch me proudly smile
As you fly off, with your life at your command

Spirit of Fight

Spirit of Fight

Shadows pool around you as if a part of your soul
They wrap around your body and hold fast
Falling to your knees, you cry out in confusion
"Please, don't let these shadows last"

Thin streams of light shine through the darkness
A savior, your rescue, a friend?
You reach out to touch them, pull them to you
However, they quickly slip right out of your hands

You kneel shivering in the icy cold the pools have delivered
Still reaching for the thin streams of light
While fighting your way to find relief from the darkness
That has taken the breath from your life

A strong gust of wind suddenly blows from your spirit
Quickly chasing the dark shadows away
As you stand up in full armor, triumphantly free
Of the shadows that darkened your day

Lies - June 07, 2010


In smoky gray mirrors that dance on traveling walls
I see reflections of hazy shadows
Weaving their way into all of my senses
Until the sun once again brings in tomorrow

Peering from underneath the icy sheets of my bed
I timidly hide from their ghostly presence
In hopes they will not see me trembling in fear
And quickly steal into my very essence

Their presence is as a black as a night with no stars
The darkest day without the glorious sun
If I could stop trembling and move just an inch
I would flee from my bed and quickly run

I lack the courage that I need to open my eyes
To escape from this nightmare I am in
Will someone please wake me and show me the lies
That my dreams have brought me into again

Dancing Butterflies - June 06, 2010

Dancing Butterflies
The sweet elusive fragrance of dancing butterflies
Flows gently from the corners of my memory
Mellow and entrancing as the softest sighs
Heard from a whispered cry of glee

I am captured by the aroma in such sweet ecstasy
That plays upon my senses so divine
A lovely, flowing feeling illuminates within me
As if, I have breathed in another time

I have escaped to another time, another place
Where I now dance delicately and free
You can smell the sweet elusive fragrance
Flowing gently from my wings
Breathe in and you can dance with me

Sing - June 5, 2010


I listened to the hush that immersed the day
And could not stand the stillness
I felt the deepest hunger in my soul to try to see
What I could do to fill this

This silence worried me and yet I did not know
Exactly what it was I hungered for
I only knew that this discontentment that I felt
Was something I absolutely abhorred

Tears shimmered in my soul at this frustration felt
In this emptiness in which I did abide
While this hunger continued gnawing in my soul
My whole being began to cry

With sudden jubilation, I realized exactly what I needed
To end this emptiness that I felt inside
And as I lifted up my voice in song and sang aloud
My hungering soul no longer cried

Messages In A Bottle - June 04, 2010

Messages In A Bottle

I send delightful messages in bottles to the one I love
Across a boundless sea that exists only in my mind
Such lovely words I send him every single day
However, my heart wonders if these messages he will find

Tender words of love inscribed by my heart's pen
So lovingly written in a crimson shade of red
I write them every day and watch them float in the wind
So like my heart, sweetly drifting away

I rest upon the burning sands of a shore I have created
In my yearning heart's eye so very long ago
And I wait to hear back from the one that I love
Just to know that he loves me so

I want to run in the sunshine, plunge into my sea
Yet, I sit and wait to hear back from my love
And I wait and I wonder if he ever thinks of me
As I give another message in a bottle, a gentle shove

Passage of Rhiann - June 03, 2010

Passage Of Rhiann

When midnight steals into the passages of Rhiann
And the moonlight illuminates the sea
Voices can be heard that resound upon the waves
Vehemently calling out to you to be freed

Your mind will be filled with countless recollections
Of a time that your heart knows could not be
The cold damp embrace of their pain on your face
Inflicted by a cruel twist of fate from the sea

Soft laughter like the music of silver bells will lure you
Separate you from the warm watchful face of the night
So be careful lest you slip off the edge of the ship
Or you may find yourself joining their sighs

Weathered by centuries of wandering the waves
These lost soul's of Rhiann's deepest sea
Care not who they take to bring them relief
This I know because they've taken me

Final Battle - June 02, 2010

Final Battle

There are such tears of battle fought in gain
Torn from the weary eyes
From hearts ensnared in unrequited love
That will never die

Pangs of anguish strike a chord
With notes that ring off key
Each time the heart returns to battle
To try again to be

Now battle-scarred and weary worn
Not sure of how to mend
Still the heart returns each time for more
Goes on fighting 'til the end

What fine glory found in battle fair
With hearts of equal measure
That meet and duel on common ground
And win their final treasure

Who I Am - June 1, 2010

Who I Am

I went searching for answers to all of the questions
I held inside the deepest part of my soul
The answers I found were simultaneously bright and dark
Such bittersweet wisdom my heart does now hold

I am now filled with a vivacious feeling of freedom
I have never known in my life before
Enlightened by the light of reason that I now can see
Opening up locked gates and closed doors

In the past I have attempted to fill every empty space
That I saw looking back in the mirror at me
Now I have found those empty places not to be lacking
As I have found all I ever wanted and need

The answers I have found are both bitter and sweet
They glow with an expounding truth
As I have found how to be happy with who I am
And accepted that I will never be like you
