A Sunday sunset burst in pastel haze
fading slowly into violets and grays.
Dazed, a pink moon rose in celestial majesty.
This world now out shined for all to see.
Climbing silently over old roofs with leaks,
over the gables of ages and chimney peaks.
In blackness spires spied from the grave.
Leafless limbs shatter this image to save.
A puffy patchwork lace glows with absorption.
Wavy glazing enhances with its distortion.
Betwixt this web our phloxen orb floats higher.
Distance retreats time forward, we both tire.
Starlight dreams swap this rare focal storm.
Spring’s now vaulted into the nightly norm.
Each day apart brings a new start.
Evenings alone we talk on the phone.
We share our stories, our feeling and worries.
We’ll plan our next meet for our lips to greet.
Then your eyes again will see the loving eyes of me.
Ocean breezes howl, the seagulls soar.
Frigid waves crash on the rocky shore.
Yet the morning mist rises above it all.
And foggy eyes see everything’s small.
Dawn’s risen for me and you.
Morning’s awoken by the heartbeats of two.
The day’s warmth brings a glow to your face.
Our sunsets felt in loving embrace.
Ahead’s a day full of whimsy and wonder.
Bridges crossed there’s joy to plunder.
Oceans away hair’s tousled and tossed.
In love we’ve found in time we’re lost.
Well Past Tense ~
All steps lead forward.
Time propels to the now, then then.
Life’s pass, nothing’s lost.
Content’s the benchmark.
Happy is joy giving joy.
Love shared will follow.
For writers the line
‘tween dreams and reality
is thin as paper
Life blossoms every spring.
Flowers bloom and birds sing.
The joy of summer’s on the way.
Our love shines brighter every day.
Sunsets holding you
Sunrises holding me
Time feeling time’s feeling free
Time’s feeling we are we
She’s spring green eyes and azalea lips,
rosy cheeks and fertile hips.
Her beauty’s beheld, never to pluck;
this clover found is my good luck.
We’ll stroll barefoot on a beach.
A tidal change’s within our reach.
Endless sunny skies to forever bestow.
Horizons call and waves wave hello.
Your scent lingers in my mind
A more fragrant rose I’ll never find.
Senses overwhelmed when entwined are we.
Memories savored forever to see.
In this instant our day’s to start.
The sun rises with imagination’s art.
Canvases unfurl forever changing.
Changes unfurl with minds raging.
Heads spin to lust and learn.
And the ageless age with every turn.
It’s time itself telling time.
By degree our world’s a chime.
A brushes stroke and all’s made right.
Then our sun will rise on another’s night.
Mornings start with the sunrise.
Life begins with open eyes.
These eyes see you when you’re not here.
These eyes see stars when you’re near.
Evening is over, my mind still.
Now time to sleep with silent quill.
But in my dreams I’ll see you.
And I’m sure you’ll see me too.
In darkness lovers meet.
In the light they’re more discreet.
In their dreams fantasy need not be.
In love, fantastic is you and me.
Sunshine awoken, alone I lay.
I’ll dream of you another day.
The sun will set and you’ll be near.
Then I’ll dream of you again, my dear.
You’re lovely from afar, sublime when held.
Eyes and lips meet, our passion’s compelled.
Two souls touching and our longings quelled.
Our time shared as one is life propelled.
The penguin stands black and white.
Half a life cloaked in the night.
Creation birth’s little doubt.
A tomb within is a tomb without.
Words silence words shout.
Stature made high, real’s stout.
A planet only revolves.
Mother’s nature evolves.
Evil kills, the good resolve.
Time tells if poles dissolve.
Darkness begins when a day’s done.
The future’s bright or there is none.
Half our lives warmed by a sun.
Twice the heat when two is one.
Icy feet wish for flight.
Penguins stand, black and white
Thank You Barbara for your inspiration!
Holding you holding me –
is the place we ought to be.
In our eyes love is seen.
When we kiss, no space between.
Two hearts beat as one in sync.
The futures bright as one we think.
Warmth’s felt in a world oft cold.
Time impassioned, never old.
Mornings awaken by gentle touch.
There’s a loving kiss, though not too much.
Our day’s ahead bringing much to do.
Moments between I’m thinking of you.
Sun’s will set in warm embrace.
Worries dissolve without a trace.
Whispers and laughter fulfill our desire.
Love and passion propels yet higher.
Our evenings fade gazing sleepy eyes.
Sweet dreams follow, never goodbyes.
Behind a model train, people there set.
Their never to worry nor do they fret.
The whistles blow at regular times.
Conductors conduct and the poet rhymes.
Silence fills the darkest of night.
A world dead ‘til morning’s light.
A flick of a switch then life turns on.
A flick of a switch and all is gone.
Harmony surrounds each day anew.
Time’s made precious loving you.
Peace and calm meet the day’s sunrise.
Beauty and warmth fill starry eyes.
Gazes shared upward to the heavens above.
Hands held and our hearts meld feeling love.
