Summer Scented Night

Jasmine by Albert Joseph Moore
I long for a summer night
with hints of jasmine in bloom
garden of dreams taking flight
love fills the space we consume

with hints of jasmine in bloom
heady scent, I think of you
love fills the space we consume
warm waves, in oceans of blue

heady scent, I think of you
gentle breeze against my back
warm waves in oceans of blue
listening to life's soundtrack

gentle breeze against my back
serenading my foolish heart
listening to life's soundtrack
shadows of yesterday depart

serenading my foolish heart
garden of dreams taking flight
shadows of yesterday depart
I long for a summer night

Apparition



Apparition in the Woods - Moritz von Schwind, 1858

 slipping into lucid dreams a ghost whisper thin
beyond silken veil, in a parallel world
writing poetic verses, songs from within
waiting for you in a bed of roses curled
in another realm, will your heart I win
or are you simply an apparition...

Intergalactic Heart

she navigates the heavenly stars
sitting on the bridge of uncertainty
he pilots her beyond Venus and Mars

transcending boundaries, healing scars
a dragon's heart beats eternally
she navigates the heavenly stars

voyage to light, no matter how far
spiraling rings, gateway to eternity
he pilots her beyond Venus and Mars

freeing spirits from undue bars
soaring to the edge of insanity
she navigates the heavenly stars

magical wonders in a galactic bazaar
music found in a dreamy guitar
he pilots her beyond Venus and Mars

doorway to the universe left ajar
defying the law of gravity
she navigates the heavenly stars
he pilots her beyond Venus and Mars

I missed the mid-week motif - space
so here is my offering...

Water the Elixir of Life



Standing Rock Photo

  in a whiskey colored sky
my thoughts are stirred
standing on the rocks
in solidarity
wild buffalo hammered
on sacred ground for justice
 round radiant moon
offered light,  proof
of strong united spirits

Dreaming in a Blue Deja Vu

artist unknown















dreaming of you, can it be true
vivid visions before my eyes
captured in early morning dew
revealing familiar blue skies

bumpy roads some traveled before
just can't seem to make any ground
in a haze, my wings long to soar
listening for that special sound

always caught in this feeling
I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming
I'm dreaming in a blue deja vu
I'm dreaming in a blue deja vu

can't you see, it's always been you
wandering lost somewhere in time
open your heart you'll feel it too
our story in passionate rhymes

dreaming under a starry sky
my heart has traveled here before
what do these visions signify
seems, I'm always yearning for more

always caught in this feeling
I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming
I'm dreaming in a blue deja vu
I'm dreaming in a blue deja vu

this uncanny feeling of you
a witness in some other place
billowing clouds come into view
forming an outline of your face

tracing your features with my mind
tuning your frequency with mine
essence of our aura entwined
beyond stars, universe aligns

always caught in this feeling
I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming
I'm dreaming in a blue deja vu
I'm dreaming in a blue deja vu

tell me, tell me can you feel it too
this dreamy state of blue deja vu
