Two Sides


Your call heads or tails
flipping a coin where will it land
will the outcome balance the scales
fate awaits at the toss of a hand

Smiling you call heads
sure that life will go your way
coasting downhill,  shiny red sled
cutting through strife, another day

I stand there tails on my side
majestic bird waiting for flight
where it  lands, wind it's guide
touched my sympathy of his plight

Your call heads or tails
could life be a game of chance
flipping a coin how far will it sail
are you willing to learn it's dance

Together different sides of a coin
but, there is hope when two join

Lover's Moon

pic taken by me

nestled in nakedness effulgent moon
two ardent  lovers sing romantic songs
melodic lyrics heavenly hearts swoon
shimmering brightly beyond human throngs

lie with me under coverings of night
embracing warm moments,  igniting flesh
play me a song as my spirit takes flight
stroke of midnight soft notes as one we mesh

bodies sway, natural rhythm mating souls
rising passion luminous moonlit sky
pieces of my heart you quietly stole
surrendering in your arms, gentle sigh

somewhere in the heavens a shooting star
crystal rain showers tumble from afar

Hidden Wisdom

tracking tones flowing sweet
rich & deep, wooden flute plays
music floating grey mystic air

vast field hard crunching snow
each step crisp crackles leading
me forward, journey boundless

hidden face, wise gatekeeper
"what is it you are seeking"
I reply " gateway to understanding"

my moccasins are worn & weary
his reply "over the mountain is
a field of daisies & juniper trees"

take me to the place of whispering
waters, I heard it has a message
of hope/ peace that I must hear

"Your message is blowing in seeds
of a dream..from a sapling will grow
a mighty tree, with strong roots"

" a lush green crown will offer you
rest but, first walk across hot embers
it will strengthen your heart & soul"

my soles will burn from carrying a
heavy heart in this journey of life
I need to lighten my knapsack

"your heart is heavy as you love
deep like the roots under my feet
scars embedded in your rich bark"

"carved within your trunk names
of those who came and went
as you wept in winter's silence"

"the world is full of those with
weak roots and hollow trunks
they will die of their own decay"

"their dreams will vanish in mist
but, those of true dreamers will live
on, for they thirst for the quest"

opening my eyes a clear vision
a land filled with rich opportunity
under winter's snowy landscape

Spring will arise with new life...

Author's note: This was inspired by
a dream I had last night..I've been
sick for a few days and in my fever
had a vision I am honoring it with
this poem.

Peace and light...

Devoted heart, southerly breeze
beautiful dryad, spiritual lady
nestled within sturdy oak tree

cascading locks, twigs & bark
guardian of whispering woods
mythical being, songs of the lark

lovers composing poetry light on feet
wings of wild passion, urgent flight
leaves offer shade, cooling rising heat

human desire embracing natural world
entwined limbs reaching heavenward
soft petals flowers of love gently unfurl
