skipping beats, gasping

middle of the night, hide

I met you once on the

shore of possibility

and verses, make me weep

in a Shakespearean sonnet

traveling the edge of

poe-tic love


you are always the one

that puts my heart on the run

why can't you see that I am

here, in the magic of dreams

waiting for you to appear


tis, love that keeps me going

Starry Night

driving  into a starry starry night
radio on, expanding our minds
vibrant hues, imaginations in flight
freedom is often difficult to find

radio on, expanding our minds
Don McLean sings of fragile sanity
freedom is often difficult to find
seeking faith, fragmented humanity

Don McLean sings of fragile sanity
in fields of wheat under moonlight
seeking faith, fragmented humanity
creativity paints our darkness bright

in fields of wheat under moonlight
vibrant hues imaginations in flight
creativity paints our darkness bright
driving into a starry starry night

Guardian of the Night

In moonlit yellow dream
 between cat-tails
   blue guardian, remains
    untouched deep

     darkness whispers
      solitudes wish
       heaven bound

        beyond the veil
          harps & lutes
           spiritual songs
             mourns hope
              born yesterday

           palmed rose
            sharp thorns
              beauty & pain
               cosmic souls

                in the hearts brow
                 one can truly see
                   what is essential

Focus On The Light

Courtesy of the Sunday Muse

Do not focus on me
for I am just just a
vessel,  a holder of light

focus on the light
the moon has your back
the sun has your face

the light in the middle
is the place of dreams
where sky and earth meet

if you cannot find a portal
then dig one in the sand
caught between your toes 

walk the shore of your
wildest imagination

let the stars chart your
pathway in the journey

all you need is a starting
point,  a baptism of thought

connecting with the stars
create your own constellation
shimmering in an endless
sky of wonder

burning bright

author's note:  This has been a rough week
my power has been out, a terrible storm
rolled in causing chaos. I have been wandering
dark spaces searching for light.

 Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian Friends!

There Was a Man

There was a man who sailed shadowy seas
he drifted into her dreams one October eve
singing a song under the harvest moon
he wore his heart on his poe-ish  sleeve

through the misty haze, he stood alone
holding  a wilted rose, sadness in his eyes
the waves roared causing a commotion
she reached for him, under a starless sky

the turn of darkness took her by surprise
words fell painfully from moonlit lips
he sang the ballad of a haunting love
she traced his image with her fingertips

in the early morn' exactly half past three
a portal of light, escapes the grey clouds
suddenly, disappearing in an autumn mist
howling winds carry their final vowels

Butterfly Song

"Migration"  Painting by Eddie Schrieffer

My wings ripped
in this world of isolation
do you understand the gravity of the situation

watching the butterflies dance

my mind is full of wanderlust
in this galaxy of interstellar travel
weightless, my thoughts migrate

dancing to the butterflies song

my heart is full, emerging with desire
dreaming of that one transforming touch
that will break me free from my cocoon

give me more than the same old song & dance

show me your eyes, the reflections of your soul
and I will give you pieces of my truest self
together we will focus on mending our wings

give me a new reason to sing the songs of life

peace, light and healing
