Truedessa's Spookalicious Reads for October!

Happy Halloween!

Tonight the veil between the two worlds will be very thin, it might be a time to reach out to a departed one or maybe one will come to visit you. Perhaps, it is through a dream that the gateway is opened.

As many of you know I am quite intrigued with the paranormal and sci-fi world. I want to give a couple of authors a shout out for their books that I found fascinating to read this month.

First, Up a novella Lost and Found  by Brandon Meyers & Bryan Pedas - you can  find them here.  A Beer for the Shower. 

This book is a paranormal thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat, I didn't want to put it down. It is written in a unique style as the book is in two parts. If you want to read a spooktacular tale on Halloween this one is perfect.  A quick easy read filled with paranormal activity. Just be careful when you turn out the lights, as you never know what might happen!

Second, Is Soulless by Crystal Collier you can find her at her blog   Crystal Collier
This is the second in her trilogy. She has created a unique blend of characters in a supernatural world. She gives the reader a real adventure in this mystifying series. I am looking forward to her third release on November 1st.

One More Dream

free images

please, just one more dream
will you bestow a precious rose
let us sing, under moonbeams

silent memories, dying scream
tears of sorrow, has time froze
please, just one more dream

songs drift along the stream
from your lips, a melody flows
let us sing, under moonbeams

healing pools, eyes softly gleam
thorns no longer pierce, love grows
please, just one more dream

heartfelt prose, key words redeem
rays of light, celestial spirits glow
let us sing, under moonbeams

in a slumber, all is not as it seems
i wish not for love to decompose
please, just one more dream
let us sing, under moonbeams

An Oasis of Dreams

I once saw a shooting star, a spark
caught my eye flashing across the sky
in silence, I made a heartfelt wish
drinking in the magic of sparkling
light, suddenly a mystical dragon appeared
maiden of dreams, your knight awaits
illuminating stairs heaven bound...

Stop, Look Before You Go!

Photo @ Truedessa

stop behold the wonders of autumn
autumn, a time of changing views
views, in wondrous hues of color
color, brightens the journey ahead
ahead, a winding road leading up
up,  narrow rocky trails dangerously steep
steep, climbing each step with a deep inhale
inhale, exhale the UN-polluted mountain air
air, crisp and clean the need to breathe
breathe, in moments before they are gone
gone, are the days when I traveled lost
lost are my dreams of yesterday, today I live
live, for today embracing glorious light
light, the source that guides the wanderer
wanderer, the one who seeks eyes of the dragon
dragon, guards the dreamers secret lair
lair, hidden sanctuary panoramic window
window, eyes of an oracle, feeling whole
whole, body, heart and soul inter-locking
inter-locking, jigsaw fitting together united
united, in effulgent  light, the prism of life
life, the journey between here and there
there, the place of higher consciousness
consciousness, the state of being truly awake
awake, transcending dreams to a new reality
reality, perception translated in an autumn day

Legend of the Stars

photo:credit shown

In a twinkling sky, a harvest moon shines
far beyond the stars, a dragon takes flight
soaring on ample wings, two hearts align
frequency of love, vibrates in the night

Navigator seeking treasures unknown
wherever you fly she'll be by your side
during darkness, you'll never be alone
shadowing dreams on a mystical ride

Captain, guardian of the dragon lair
with honor, offering his heart and soul
magical dreams, lyrical songs to share
wavering, on the bridge of self control

Seeking a place where they truly belong
falling in the embrace of a lover's song

Tapping to the Sugar Maples

pic credit - Truedessa's Collection

in a cloudless sky
an autumn day calls
come to the mountains
breathe in the fresh air
take in the rich hues of life
fall into the lush landscape
of a sun-kissed valley
dance in the arms of nature
taste the sweetness
of maples

I, Of The Storm

waves break, who can silence a raging sea
eye of destruction, hard to understand
terror strikes, many with no place to flee
waves break, who can  silence a raging sea
swelling waters,  flooding dripping wet land
mourning heartbroken,  sifting through debris
waves break, who can silence  a raging sea
eye of destruction, hard to understand


I wrote this after watching the hurricane
coverage. It made me weep all the destruction
and lives lost.

Pieced Together With Love

Pablo Picasso - Girl with a Mandolin


naked and vulnerable
offering you fragments
of my heart


strumming heartstrings
seductively pulling you
into my embrace


music opens our world
together we are in tune
a work of art


upon soft lips, a song
blooms under moonlight
in desert sands


sipping Merlot, black cherry
& sweet plums, savoring
the moment we become


touching the curves of my body
softly stroking my neck
loving fingers, dancing to 
the rhythm of desire


holding on to dreams, our songs
we dare to soar  beyond the stars
discovering the mystery of us
drifting in a musical eclipse

authors note: I was inspired by
this artwork and of course I
put my own spin on this
cubist style poem.
