Take Me To Where the Wild Heart Roams

Mountain Lion, Puma, Cougar, Wildlife

Take me to where the mystic dragon flies
In his beating heart the fire of love resides
wrap me in the folds of his mighty wings 
believing in the magic of the songs he sings

Take me to where the wild puma wander
in his strength and courage free to conquer
coat me with patience to achieve desires
believing in the magic of nature to inspire

Take me to where the moon & stars shine
in  heavenly beauty earth and heaven align
embrace me with light so I might truly see
believing in the magic of dreams, I am free

Authors note:  I recently had an encounter
with a puma. I have been pondering the
deeper message of this sighting.

As Poets United goes on a break
I would like to wish all a Happy and Safe
Holiday. Merry Christmas!

Until our paths meet again in the journey

Thank you for visiting and supporting
my dreams and poetry

Peace, love and dreams

The Golden Owl Flies


 Moonlight creeps across fallen snow
she dreams of lands that no one knows
thousands of archers guard the sky
here the golden owl nightly flies

beyond the veil sturdy pines grow
tonight the journey long and slow
seeking inner peace her heart sighs
here the golden owl nightly flies

through the darkness eyes reflecting
mind, soul and body connecting
mysteries of the night arise
here the golden owl nightly flies

moonlight creeps across fallen snow
here the golden owl nightly flies

You Brought Me

You brought me words
fueling my heart with the

I bring you gratitude

Rings of Time

 Life started as a seed 
 hoping that you would take root
 & grow into a magnificent tree

In your early years growing
rapidly with the help of
spring and summer rains
and the warmth of the sun

One day there was a storm
lightning cracked , thunder roared
and a heavy tree fell
it's weight against your trunk
you had to fight hard to
build up your weaken side

In time you grew tall and straight
but, the neighborhood became
crowded and there was little
water and sunshine for
all to thrive...

Suddenly, one day a stranger
wandered in the woods with
his axe he trimmed down the
neighboring woodlands.  The
tree became sad and watched
the neighborhood decline

But, once again the tree
was  able to obtain ample
nourishment and sunlight
and the tree grew to new
heights for many years

Then, a terrible day came
the sky became smoky grey
fire breathed through the

The tree trembled in fear
and prayed to the heavens
for rain...

" save me", the tree cried

and so it was, the tree was spared
 still carrying the scars under
newly formed wood.

The tree survived many dry
spells and harsh winters
made her fragile limbs break

Today, the tree towers
the forest and her crown
seems to touch the sky

The tree's age is a secret
hidden underneath thick bark
rings of life,  tell an amazing

May the tree live for many
generations to come gifting
the world with clean air,
a home for nature's animals
and harmony for it's people

author's note:  I missed Poets United
Midweek Motif - Ode to Age
This story of a tree kept
whispering in my ear
So many trees have
been lost by the recent

Thank you for reading
Have a wonderful day!
This is a rough draft
but, I think it has

The Musician's Touch

He  strokes her long, slender,
smooth neck, sliding up and down
in a rhythmic motion

gently  plucks her fragile strings
with razor sharp precision
she yields to his callused fingers

her curvaceous glossy
body warms against his skin
creating a soft melody of
insatiable desire, melting
into a rhapsody

coarse, hot and jagged notes
amplify their song  in a star-studded

he knows how to rock her world
playing a lover's song
