Fading Scars - Beneath Stars

photo - pinterest
















She hides the scars from life
initiation of a warrior spirit
brisk winds, bone knife
shamanic dreams she now inherits

ancestors call from the other side
deer spirit brings a healing balm
beyond the mask, a willow cries
drums induce a sense of calm

Beyond the Heart, Never Apart



courtesy of free-photos















A dragon flies two heart entwined in flight
Tamsin and Aden waiting to soar new heights
between rippling oceans and deserts sands
forever reaching for the others hand

dreaming in another realm, a planet of blue
starlit crystals in a cosmic twilight dew
Tamsin and Aden navigate an amethyst sky
on wings of a dragon with mystical eyes

searching the stars for their hearts desire
dawn awakening to passions burning fires
a soul love, stronger than any human bond
ripples of emotions floating on a lotus pond

for in the heart, their tale began to grow
basking in the sun and moon's warm glow
seeking the heavenly garden of Eden
in faraway lands, they are still believing

crossing the bridge between two worlds
allowing their dreams to gently unfurl
a man with a story evolving in his heart
a woman who felt him from the start

where the story goes, only they know
soaring wherever the wind doth blow
awakening to the frequency of love
Tamsin & Aden glisten in stars above

author's note:

Inspired by Dragon of the Stars by Alex J Cavanaugh
After I read Dragon of the Stars I wanted the story to continue.
Alex surprised me and  generously provided a short story "Dragon's Destiny".
It seems my muse has decided the story should continue in the form of a short story
"Beyond the Stars", until then I offer you this poem.  Thank you for visiting!

A Mournful Song


Pic @ Truedessa 



















Red robin came to sing one day
in grief, I wished he'd go away

covering my ears so not to hear
he just wanted to bring some cheer

my heart out of tune with the beat
wearily tapping my heavy feet

and there must be something wrong
in wanting to silence a birdsong

Writing a cover Poem at dVerse
inspired by the following:


 A Minor Bird by Robert Frost

I have wished a bird would fly away,
And not sing by my house all day;

Have clapped my hands at him from the door
When it seemed as if I could bear no more.

The fault must partly have been in me.
The bird was not to blame for his key.

And of course there must be something wrong
In wanting to silence any song

Bumpy Dream


Pic Truedessa's Collection
















From heaven a star child once fell
within her heart a dream did dwell
lyrical songs , a magical spell
bumpy ride she could not foretell


poetic words spilled from her soul
penning verses on ancient scrolls
on secreted roads, she did stroll
seeking pieces to make her whole


weary from travel, on knees she fell
clinging to words, parchment scrolls
in mystic dew, a dragon on a stroll
new vision fortune she could foretell


awakening dreams, within her soul
opening space, for love to dwell
sleeping under a wondrous spell
healing torn wings, feeling whole


with clarity she can now foretell
embracing love's magical spell
forever the melody will dwell
from heaven a star child once fell

Embracing the Blues

artist unknown

















the blues have a way of hitting you hard
especially when you hear  a weeping harp
they say it's all about rhythmic breathing
i  think it's a bit like making love, engaging
mouth, lips and tongue in musical dialogue
releasing tension with each breath

Nature's Chair for All to Share



Truedessa's Collection





















come sit with me on nature's chair
open your mind to beauty outside
autumn trees have a story to share
sharp-shinned hawk, your guide

open your mind to beauty outside
there is a world of wondrous color
sharp-shinned hawk, your guide
open your eyes, see and discover

there is a world of wondrous color
behold, the spirited red dragonfly
open your eyes, see and discover
on iridescent wings, soaring high

behold, the spirited red dragonfly
can you feel  the winds of change
on iridescent wings, soaring high
whispering in a land now strange

can you feel  the winds of change
great ancestors know your feelings
whispering in a land now strange
come to the river for quiet healing

great ancestors know your feelings
rise up beneath emotional waters
come to the river for quiet healing
breakdown your inner borders

rise up beneath  emotional waters
autumn trees have a story to share
breakdown your inner borders
come sit with me on nature's chair

Beneath a Super-Moon




dancing beneath a super-moon
drum beats out a mystical tune
silhouettes sway in rays of light
restless souls in a mystic night

dreaming beneath a super-moon
wrapped in a warm silken cocoon
lucid visions bring forth delight
restless souls in a mystic night

singing beneath a super - moon
rhythmic melodies, blissful swoon
cosmic stars, burning golden bright
restless souls in a mystic night
