Two lips/Tu(lips)

tu(lips) breathe life into me
soft petals bloom in sunlight
waiting for your touch

I am vibrantly alive
a wildflower in moonlight
inhaling your scent

Fans in the Night


Restless night
listening to the sound
of ceiling blades cutting
through my thoughts

dissecting our words
into syllables, pieces
of our hearts linger
in the spring heat

thirsty for lost songs
remembering our verses
the nightingale softly sings
and I wonder do you hear

Fallen Willow's Final Tears

Oh, sweet willow, I hear your song
sparrows and blue jays sing along
weeping by your side, time to mourn
uprooted your sturdy trunk torn

along the shore where you belong
oh, sweet willow, I hear your song
enchantment was your wondrous gift
teaching love and loss, my mind drifts

fallen, spirits have lost their home
among constellations they roam
oh, sweet willow, I hear your song
your limbs, drumsticks beating strong

ancient guardian, thousands of tears
wept for mankind over the years
two red winged blackbirds sing along
oh, sweet willow, I hear your song

It's No Secret
I Just Can't Help Believin'
You need to  "Follow That Dream"
It's Now or Never
I've " Never Been to Spain"
or seen an  "Hawaiian Sunset"
(Now and Then There's) A Fool Such as I
I once visited " Heartbreak Hotel"
Don't Be Cruel
Love Me Tender
I"m  All Shook Up
Loving you
On a Mystery Train
I found a Good Luck Charm
The Wonder of You
If I Can Dream
There will be no "Suspicious Minds"
Love Letters
Always  On My Mind
That's All Right
Can't Help Falling In Love With You
You're  just "A Big Hunk O Love'
In  "Blue Suede Shoes"

Promise of Growth

original pic source unknown

Will you dig deep into rich soil
beautify your inner landscape
let not the apple of life spoil
will you dig deep into rich soil
plant tranquility, weed turmoil
a loving world we hope to shape
will you dig deep into rich soil
beautify your inner landscape

Huntress of Dreams

pic - original source unknown
 she is a huntress in the night
under the glow of blue moonlight
intuitive, tracking wild dreams
following songs of ancient streams

dark shadows, hiding beyond sight
she is a huntress in the night
her heart pounds to the water drum
catching the rhythm as crickets hum

in primal tongue, she sings for him
awaken my love hear my hymn
she is a huntress in the night
enchantment is ours, hold on tight

come with me, in a hidden cave
let's satisfy the dream we crave
tangled with him, she finds delight
she is a huntress in the night
