Fire and Smoke

unknown source


and the clouds burst forth
with fire and smoke
the dragon soared
through silent stars
she woke to the rush
of thunder

in an hour of darkness
it was he alone who
would calm her
heavy heart

he woke at 3:00 am
to her soft cries
feeling her deep within
his soul she, the
navigator of the stars

their world was full
of magical  knights
through the mist
she blew him a kiss

for him she would
give her very heart
connected through
a mystical realm
bonded by love

author's note: wip - fragments from something I am writing
as the muse seems to re-arrange the story..

Chaos at Sea!

Two light hearted fools drifting at sea
Truedessa dreaming under a starry sky
Capt'n Pat at the helm,  humming "Let it Be"
the spotted cat sitting by his side

Truedessa, conjured up  a secret plan
to gather friends aboard their ship
she knew the cat would not be a  fan
with that thought,  the wind did whip

dangerous waters in a balmy climate
Truedessa penned a verse or two
cat played along and rhymed it
distance ship drifting into view

sudden shift , moon growing full
out of the water a mystic frogman
he had the strength of a roaring bull
cat swatted the creature and then ran

frogman tried to grab Truedessa's hand
Capt'n Pat would have none of that
bellowing  out a loud command
from the sky came a giant bat

swooping low over their heads
Capt'n Pat swinging his sword
Truedessa clinging to dream beads
fast approaching vessel starboard

hop hop hopping
  across wide wooden planks


 clashing sword and scepter
    riding  wild waves...
Capt'n Red Shoe and Grumpy Blue
ahoy mateys,  what goes on there
to the rescue with the whole crew
even the dragon came from his lair

bat and dragon  a powerful pair
frogman wanted to make an accord
exhausted and gasping for some air
he just wanted his kingdom restored

Truedessa the key to breaking the spell
now, all the friends gathered around
anxious to hear the story he would tell
Glenn set the scene,  Alex provided sound

Sherry was lulled by the oceans song
a wicked sorcerer,  stole his magical land
kissing Truedessa  would right a wrong
together the group began to understand

Truedessa agreed at precisely midnight
giving the frogman a long awaited kiss
Merlin appeared in the moonlight
his realm saved in a moment of bliss

The constellations dancing  with delight
Happy Birthday written in the sky
Capn't Pat smiled, enjoying the sight
Truedessa, wiped a tear from her eye

The ninja began to play his guitar
beer guys brought a keg and a drinkin' song
Capt'n Pat made a wish on a shooting star
celebrating with friends everyone sang along

Happy Birthday Pat!
another adventure
"just for you"
 I know I'm early...

Truedessa's Collection

Build me a sanctuary with no walls
communing under a canopy of trees
harmony found where nature calls

here the mystic water rises and falls
ancient prophets whisper in a breeze
build me a sanctuary with no walls

open space no dark corridors or halls
river of life flowing towards the sea
harmony found where nature calls

between blades of grass time crawls
opening doorways with a master key
build be a sanctuary with no walls

blue skies calming inner squalls
healing wounds that haunt thee
harmony found where nature calls

precious memories, the heart recalls
amidst tall white birch, feeling free
build me a sanctuary with no walls
harmony found where nature calls

Enchanted Dreams

unknown source

Dancing with a dragon under moonlight
serenading a dreamer, song arises
awakening desire, gleaming starlight
dancing with a dragon under moonlight
soaring heavenly bodies, sleepless night
finding happiness in a distant horizon
dancing with a dragon under moonlight
serenading a dreamer, song arises

In a Patch of Clover

when the saints go marching in
tell me who will be in that

how many will watch
from the sidelines
holding their  brightly
colored balloons

praying for ascension
into the heavenly realm
who are the sinners
and who are the
it is hard to tell

how many will be
left behind wondering
why, why, why

in the great highlands
you can hear the drone
of the bagpipes, wailing
a sorrowful song...a bit
of Celtic thunder...

a four leaf clover placed
in open hands a bit of

Restless Fits

You left, I wanted you to stay
on a tree swing sorrow sits
memories of you on auto play
our words a match of two wits
unable to sleep restless fits
laughter heals, write me a comedy
from scene to scene my mind flits
to lose one so special a tragedy
shower of tears from creator's eye
falling under a spell not very smart
in darkest hours the soul does cry
lost dreams, held in a broken heart
ghosts from yesterday loudly moan
finding strength in a crystal stone

Our challenge for today is to use the following fourteen words in the order presented: stay, sits, play, wits, fits, comedy, flits, tragedy, eye, smart, cry, heart, moan, stone

our notes
whispers of love
message of atonement
mercy in words of devotion
sealed memories
forgiveness in a kiss
ceaselessly beating in my heart

Climbing New Heights

Standing solitary on a mountaintop
reality hovers in evening backdrop
dreams awaken under a starry night
giving and receiving the gift of light

footsteps, journey quest to the inner soul
secrets to life written on ancient scrolls
sacred ground pioneering new height
giving and receiving the gift of light

beneath a cloak of invisibility
expanding the mind to possibility
channeling energy and foresight
giving and receiving the gift of light
mossy trails, shaping new life
reborn in spirit leaving behind strife
true heart wondrous star burning bright
giving and receiving the gift of light

 honoring the wisdom within

author's note: this is to honor a
dream. Through self discovery

Thank you for visiting and
may light guide you
safely in your journey.

A Flower was Offered to Me

A flower was offered to me
within soft delicate petals
all the words we shared
nurtured with abundant

A flower was offered to me
from the garden of song
harmoniously growing
heavenly scent

A flower was offered to me
melodious enchantment
tapping to the rhythm
composing notes
