Tears Freeze on Forest Trees

free wallpaper

just riffing thinking out loud
i am just drifting in a cloud

passing through heavenly portals
as if, I were more than mortal

beyond dark skies flying high
where the magpie passes by(e)

devouring yellow moon cakes
creating angels out of snowflakes

into a realm of wonder I am drawn
lucid dreaming before new dawn

poetry scattered in morning frost
internal/external rhymes are lost

mourning crows cover frozen trees
teardrops fall in winter's freeze

snowy owl swoops across the land
shifting views, hard to understand

Song of the Conch

unknown source

resting on the water's edge
life seems to have drifted

       all that remains is an empty shell
       filled with musical notes

listening with an attentive ear
to the soft whispers from a distant

     singing in a rippling tide
     songs from the heart

written for dVerse Quadrille #24
writing a 44 word poem
incorporating the word

Our Daily Planet - Read All About It!

superman - wiki

and where we went lent rent 
rent was due for the air we breathe 
is said to be  filled with every 
variation of me and you 
I had no idea what to say 
I opened a beer after getting home from a long day 
and turning to go yet half turning stay 
tomorrow isn't here ... ever 
so here I save myself 
tangled up in a sense of now 
wondering how the muse finds 
me changing my clothes 
back into being human again 
or some other facsimile 
of where to bend/contort myself 
to wearing a smile of " it will be alright " with buttered popcorn 
and licorice whips I prefer the cherry but that is secondary 
to the movie the movie is always about to begin and I cannot wait 
to hunt for Easter eggs and little figurines in birdhouses 
people have left along the path to salvation or desperation 

Phone Booths once lined the streets, hey you
know Superman needed a place to transform
3 Doors down singing Kryptonite

"If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman"

read all about it in the Sunday  paper
soaring the skies,  in a planetary revolution
will humans ever find a peaceful solution

high above the city lights, a new vision
forms in my mind...
I'll deliver dream seeds to those in need
giving them a reason to believe...
plant them on the river's edge
a hundred lanterns sparkle in the sky
make a wish, on a sandman's high
dancing under moonbeams

do you want to 
want to what 
I dunno, anything 
that's a lot to handle 
well try me 
I am not thirsty right now 
okay how about a sip 
fair enough 
wow salty with sweet note finishes 
yes comes from being Italian 
you smirk and shhh 
here comes the movie 
 <houselights flickers thunder appears thrown somewhere it wasn't supposed to be> 

 (scene 1) 

"it was a dark and stormy night" 

I am here 
a Sun and Moon fancier 
the places drumming takes me 
hands outstretched 
in the squint eyed late light of a long day 
palms to wildflowers 
wading waiting 
for when 
is scented 
with you again 

 meanwhile superman said to Lois
any house with you will do 
and they took a British cab 
and sped off in taupe colored clothes 
with two suitcases and feather boas 
in tow ...

The Planetarium has a free show tonight
offering celestial realism to the tune
of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon"
I said to you  "Hey, I hate to burst their bubble,
but there is a full moon illuminating the sky
with more than  a hundred stars crossing
the stage of enlightenment...

We laughed as Superman and Lois are
all about reality in a world of surrealism

pass the popcorn, I like it warm it tastes
fresher that way...
You know when words melt together they
form hot poetry...there's a lot written
between the lines..it's the movement
of the tide, the ebb and flow of the
healing waters...

poem-ing makes me smile the world
seems a bit brighter even in those
places cloaked with darkness...

sometimes thunder is thrown in the
most unusual places...it's the
lightning that creates energy...

shhh...(scene 2)

"After the STorm"

 feather boas and a suitcase of dreams..

swing set at night tag your it feet poking at stars
handing off time to how words mimic the cycle of rain ...

Author's note:  Edward @ theblindlantern  kindly invited me to try a
collaboration after visiting his blog.  So, we let our muses out on the
playground of words. Thanks Edward for an entertaining adventure.

Thank you for visiting...

Doors ~ Lost in Time

under winter moon
doorway to the universe
breathing in our melody
awakening dreams
unlocking hidden magic
opening doors to our soul

Overlooking the Ends of the Earth

new beginning at the ends of the earth Michaela Sagatova

standing in green glades & blue poppies
searching for life, feeling melancholy
my violin and bow, play a dragon's tune
new beginning, under stars and moon

soaring beyond the boundaries of earth
awakening dreams,  songs of rebirth
intoxicating beauty, planetary swoon
new beginning, under stars and moon

spreading wings, you lift me up high
oh sweet dragon, fly me beyond blue sky
let my heart sing by the mystic lagoon
new beginning, under stars and moon
