Veiled - October 31, 2010


Though I have found you within the walls, you arise
Checked with beauty full of bends and curves
Alone, you hold bright spaces
With the softest footsteps
Of great reserve

Who would have guessed that I would have found you
Emblazoned in all your infinite mystic light
Surrounded by a warm white mist
How hard your essence
Would be to fight

There for a while all was veiled in this warm white mist
Which flew in anew each day on the wind
I slept with feathers round my bed
Ignoring the burning bush
I defend

Now I sigh at the sight of your infinite mystic light
As the wind blows the mist aside
Though I have found you within the walls, I arise
To seek that from which
I hide

A Breath Apart - October 26, 2010

A Breath Apart

Those breathings of the softest hours turn
On golden leaves that fall away
Your kisses upon my neck will still burn
When heaven's stars meet
The light of day

Half-awake, I still stand a breath apart
Remembering a budding flower
Lovely angel wings flutter in my heart
As I recall those sweet
Love filled hours

Among the things which move the waves along
Is my tender vision of your hands
A gentle grace with moves so strong
My ebb and flow
At your command

A dove's wings sweep across this flaming blush
Spreading like the rising sun
Upon a chest of happiness a burst of rush
Softly hints of an eternity
Of two becoming one

Open Window - October 25, 2010

Open Window

A cardinal is looking in my open window
Searching for his beloved sky
I can see his eyes in the morning glow
Can tell that his wings
Are aching to fly

I can feel a whispered breeze calling out to him
So why does he continue looking here
Instead of lighting there on yonder limb
Is he merely confused
Or full of fear

I dare not utter a single, solitary word
Or move an inch, you see
Recognizing a kindred spirit in this bird
Looking here in my window
Searching, just like me

I am staring at the world through an open window
Always, searching for my beloved sky
One day when I find what I seek, I will go
Spread out my wings
And swiftly fly

A Thousand Joys - Oct. 23, 2010

A Thousand Joys

Oh, to love a spirit that clings within my mind
Twines around my heart
Where all those lovely colors gently bind
Into sweet verses of magic
Which never part

This is the happiness I hold close within
Where my best affections lie
A thousand joys softly race across my skin
When I look
Into your eyes

All my darkness crumbles away to naught
When you twine your colors here
Binding verses your heart has taught my own
To chase
Away my fears

Oh, how I love a spirit that clings within my mind
Softly weaves its magic here
Brings a thousand joys to race across my skin so fine
Makes my fears
All disappear

Whole - October 17, 2010


I glimpse your eyes staring at the shadows in my soul
Seeking to calm the wildly rushing storm
That keeps my heart out of control
Unable to keep
The beat
Pulsating whole

I stare into eyes that seek to calm the storms
To make my heart their own
Leaving chambers once cold now warm
And my heart begins to pulsate
To the beat
Of a song, its always known

Buried longings softly rush, to be finally freed
From this heart out of control
Once a half now pulsates complete
As your eyes chase shadows
Calming storms, my heart
Returns to whole

Naive Hearts - October 15, 2010

 Naive Hearts

Silken impressions can entice a novice
Unversed and starry-eyed
To leap from a cast iron refuge into raging fires
Relinquishing any thought of their pride

Sweet tempting trickles of honeyed bliss
Dance magically in their eyes
While chasing thrills with their naive hearts
Unskilled in determining lies

A novice becomes tempered in raging fires
Versed in the troubles of love
When their naive hearts are utterly broken in two
Crying out to the blue moon up above

Experience reigns master, as a naive heart learns
To chase those thrills and yet discern
How to patiently peer from the refuge of iron
Before leaping into love's fiery burn

Effervesce - October 14, 2010


Filling and fading with a soft caress
My playmate by the deep
Our memories diminish into effervesce
Held upon the sands of time
They keep

We bind and softly lay them all along
Like small sparks of fire
Yet out of the mist they are burning strong
As our soul's
Deepest desires

The dusk of evening, breaks into light
Filling with a soft caress
Memories are found through clouds of night
In the surging foam
Of effervesce

Those sands of time will unbind the fires
My playmate by the deep
Found in our soul's deepest desires
The smallest spark
Will keep

Dancing Moonlight - Oct. 11, 2010

Dancing Moonlight

Misty moonlight falls on dancing waters
Shimmers as it plays
Lights the fall of a gauntlet's challenge
Called the sunrise
Of the day

Straining beams of iridescence quietly appear
Changing in a glow
Accumulating dust from a starlight's sphere
A brilliant sparkling
From long ago

A splash of velvet is the midnight sky
Cradling our moon
Softly singing the sweetest lullaby
Knowing the challenge
Is ending soon

Streaks of crimson, fiery red appear
Across the velveteen
The moonlight's dancing end is near
As the sun again
Is seen

Keystone - October 07, 2010

If I asked you what you see in me
Would those rivers
Flow the same
A vessel for to hold the sea
Or a levee for to claim

Would you see walls you can absolve
A tree with no leaves
A riddle
No man could ever solve
Or a truth you can believe

Tell me true, what you can see
When your sky
Is not blue
A web interlacing what cannot be
Or one that ties my heart to you

Would you tell me you celebrate the jewel
You've found
For a kingdom of your own
Kept as a keystone
To create a harmonious sound
You cannot compose on your own

Come To Know You - Oct. 5, 2010

Terra Kate  

Come To Know You
Through the sphere of consciousness
I travel into your mind
Sharing your deepest feelings and beliefs
Yet not feeling less
Than if they were mine

I hear the echoes of your private pain
See visions of your pleasure
Take inside my inner self all that you are
Within your domain
We stand in equal measure

I can feel the awesome presence of your power
Know that which makes you weak
When I travel into all that you are inside
To truly come to know you
Is what I seek
