Room for Time

photo - public domain

dream the pathways of mystics
allow yourself to be artistic
release your mind of all debris
enter the house of time with me

leave your moccasins at the door
open your heart, let us explore
the multi-verse is ours to see
enter the house of time with me

we are lovers in cosmic stardust
raising our consciousness with trust
bed of dreams our souls are now free
enter the house of time with me

Winter's Wonder


crystalline grace
farewell to autumn's warmth
hibernating until springs glow
falling to earth
amazingly unique
green pines whispering in silence
silent wisdom
wonders unfold in night
seeing past the veil of darkness

a time of change

Willow Flute & Golden Lute

free images

I open my ears so I might hear
the songs of the willow flute
all my troubles seem to disappear
hidden in the rifts of a golden lute

come, my love let us drift away
into a sea of sweet ecstasy
harmony is only a dream away
together composing our destiny

I open my ears so I might hear
the songs of the willow flute

our words,  a collection of lyrics
spoken from the inner heart
energizing our emerging spirit
romanticism an evolving art

come, my love let us drift away
into a sea of sweet ecstasy
harmony is only a dream away
together composing our destiny

all my troubles seem to disappear
hidden in the riffs of a golden lute

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
