Post Card from the Sea

photo - wikimedia


in the swell of ocean waves
visions of you in a dream tide
love is wild, it cannot behave
I heard Neptune's roaring cry
tis love,a mortal heart craves
thinking of you, under blue sky
swimming in a riptide, be brave

Drizzle me with Kisses




drizzle me with honey coated kisses
licking syllables from my lips, our
words dancing tongue to tongue
together perfecting the art of poetry
falling in free verse slower than the rain
catching our breath in the next refrain
hearts beating to a rhythmical cadence

Starlight Ride


courtesy of free wallpaper.com



















somewhere across the great divide
my soul waits to take a starlight ride
soaring to the  beat of a shaman drum
leaving you a path of cosmic crumbs

come follow me, I will navigate the way
oh, what I'm feeling words can't convey
love resides, out in the vast blue sky
within my heart a wild dragon flies

unfurling my wings, I want to flee
into  dreams, there's a place to be
into dreams, there's you and me
soaring in a boundless heavenly sea

somewhere across the great divide
you and I ride an emotional tide
we bridge the gap, the great void
spiraling in the beltway of asteroids

come follow me, I will navigate the way
oh, what I'm feeling words can't convey
love resides, out in the vast blue sky
within my heart a wild dragon flies

unfurling my wings, I want to flee
into  dreams, there's a place to be
into dreams, there's you and me
soaring in a boundless heavenly sea

somewhere across the great divide
I sleep safe and secure by your side
soaring to the melody of your heart
in the rapture of love, needing no chart

come follow me, I will navigate the way
oh, what I'm feeling words can't convey
love resides, out in the vast blue sky
within my heart a wild dragon flies

unfurling my wings, I want to flee
into  dreams, there's a place to be
into dreams, there's you and me
soaring in a boundless heavenly sea

Reflections





















Tranquility, on water's edge
silently waiting under grey sky
you bring a promise, a pledge
nearby, budding willow cries

silently waiting under grey sky
reflections of who we really are
nearby,  budding willow cries
beyond dark clouds, shining star

reflections of who we really are
walking a thin line at twilight
beyond dark clouds, shining star
on hopeful wings we take flight

walking a thin line at twilight
truth found in the looking glass
on hopeful wings we take flight
new life in blades of fresh grass

truth found in the looking glass
transition, spring is now calling
new life in blades of fresh grass
sunlight awakens, new dawning

Red Balloon, Carrying a Tune

 Sojourning
west I begin my quest
searching for a sanctuary of rest
songs beating within my breast
brightly colored balloons carry me
beyond tall peaks of evergreen trees
catching your scent in spring's breeze
bursting with joy
a time of renewal
love

Silent Good-bye, Spring Arrives

Truedessa's Collection














in silence the sound of good-bye
melting winter snow, spring arrives
listen for the willows soft cry
in silence the sound of good-bye
awakening, strong roots survive
stretching upward, towards the sky
in silence the sound of good-bye
melting winter snow, spring arrives

welcoming upcoming spring

Author's note: I recently took this photo.
Can you see the pair in disguise?

Swaths of Color to See

The Wave - Pierre-Auguste Renoir - Wikimedia







choppy white waves
swaths of rippling blue
splashes emerald green
nature swirls with life
scattered palette of light
mixing hues
carrying a poets dream
flaming angel fish
rainbow of energy
wishing on a star-fish
movement of the tide
entertaining my muse

trying my hand at impressionism
with words
