Burgeoning Spring

artwork by Cheryl Kellar

two hearts
 burgeoning  spring 
 bright  blooms bursting  colors 
 soft   moist  petals,  waiting  tulips
we kiss


my love
pick me a song
  vases filled endless  love 
 luscious   garden   sweet  melodies
 touch  me

Where the Wildflowers Thrive

Wildflowers by Nikolai Galakhov

where  the  wildflowers   thrive   magic  resides
planting seeds in a  rich  meadow  of  green 
warm   mystical  realm,  our  dreams  will   survive 
new  promises  take   root  ,  message  foreseen

traveling  realms,  where   will  the  path   lead 
follow  your heart  it  always  knows the  way 
clearing  wide  path,  pulling  up  strangling weeds
in the  distance,  a  white   horse   softly  neighs

beckoning our  wild   spirit   to   take   flight 
winged Pegasus,  soaring   dark  skies  unknown 
constellations  spark  warm desires of   night 
full  moon,  behold  blue sapphire  crystal   stone 

reaching  heavenward  for  the  golden   ring 
dreamers are reborn, beating  hearts now  sing

May Day

Finland, 1968, photo by George F. Mobley

swift change
turbulent winds
winter's last breath, clouds cry
spring celebration gone astray

Deer Heart

I am a creature of the land
heart of gentleness free spirit
many seek my mystical powers
listening to cries of each conch shell
carrying their weight upon my back
why, do you feel the need to collar me
look into my dark eyes, feel my pain
hunters come to track me down
camouflage I  hide in tall green pines
sprinting  between dark  shadows
seeing behind the mask of deception
my antlers are strong reaching skyward
would you wound me with your arrows
healing & regeneration my gift rebirth
balance lays in love and compassion
heart of gentleness free spirit
I am a creature of the land 
deer heart..

Within the Mirror View

Dream portal, illuminating mirror
beholding myself deep within your soul
soft reflections of you, my eyes clearer
two  images  harmoniously whole

staring into your eyes dazzling starlight
through the looking glass lies a mystery
crossing a new dimension, we take flight
etched across the heavens, our history

silvery moonbeams, two silhouettes dance
willow drums hum, behind curtains of night
as one slipping into a rhythmic trance
entwined arms & limbs a lover's delight

love shatters boundaries, beautiful view
beyond the horizon,  a glimpse of you

Today I thought of You..

my own picture

Turtles basking in a mid day sun
slow & easy pacing one's steps

soft reflections of life's journey
transformation in cooling waters

recalling warm breath of spring
creating balance, mystical pond

ancient songs,  rattling wisdom
promises of healing & strength

carrying the weight of the earth
grounded during difficult times

hidden door keeper between realms
opening hearts for inner peace

Today I thought of you...
