I saw today my baby’s new start.
Her journey forward, lives of love, joy and art.
Now hand in hand fulfilling needs,
on this grassy aisle the future leads.
With a tear moms and dads share,
we part with one to make this pair.
And in this moment two worlds align,
a daughter’s yours and a son is mine.
Yes, I saw today,
two who each adores.
And with forever love and peace,
congratulations to you and yours.
June 30, 2018
Dedicated to my daughter Hannah and soon to be son-in-law Makoto.
The sun rose, something’s gone astray.
Words returning I hope some other day.
Till then seek I shall something to say.
And express my love of you some other way.
Too precious is time to feel blue.
Days blend brighter with hues of two.
As lovers and the best of friends,
our moments as one, a shade of no ends.
Raspberry lips and candy apple toes dancing.
One atop another, delightful, delicious romancing,
Drifting into bliss our rhapsody sublime.
Together beneath a strawberry moon, endless is our time.
Her scent lingers on my fluffy pillow,
sensations wished to forever know.
Her head softly rests upon my chest,
sensations whisper our love is best.
Our eyes will meet, lips soon follow.
Dreams awaken a sensational tomorrow.
Light me up baby.
You light me up right.
Light me up baby,
as the sun is bright.
Light me up baby.
We’ll shine through the night.
You light me up baby.
Love’s brilliance’s in our sight.
on a quest for better situations,
dreaming dreams of our past,
finding nightmares came to fast.
Parents seeking wages,
find now children in cages.
Sought was a new life,
free from dominance and strife.
But how soon we forget,
our immigrant ancestors wishful bet.
Improving lives without hesitation
was the founding of this new nation.
Salvation given, a new fabric knit.
Kings be damned! “We” was writ.
Now a bum on his throne,
dreams a world he can own.
Manipulating his masses,
heads up their asses.
Wiping tears from wistful eyes,
blurred are lines of trickle down cries.
On a race of superior stupidity,
destruction reigns for pale supremacy.
With tribal fear to defend,
this world they will end.
First kisses, awkward and sweet,
blissful sensations from head to feet.
Lips part and glazed eyes meet.
Second kisses, our forever treat.
Distance divides, in hearts no space.
My place felt on her glowing face.
Time’s seen in loving eyes.
Equals together, emotion multiplies.
I’m tickled in all the right places.
Smiles burst on glowing faces.
Laughs and giggles, bodies gently caressed.
Tingling consumes, lips say it best.
Distractible and Chair
Life is distracting
when hours and hours required
Taking a backseat
is often bumpy, but not
in a limousine.
When writing’s your path
take all the forks you can get
and ignore the knives.
Our tall ship sails to horizons unknown.
Cool breezes guide, randomly blown.
Tides rise and fall, emotions thrown.
Waves plunder, our hulls moan.
Lost at sea we’re never alone.
Pick’s in hand, sticks in mind,
harps guide in words I find.
Inspiration meets, greets and fleets.
Hearts feel souls on streets.
Vibrations good, silence strange.
Eyes flicker, scenes change.
A world of waves: hellos, goodbyes.
Exuberance crashes laughs with cries.
Future’s run forward, stepping away.
Winnings cost, losses sway.
Pencil’s sharp to fill the gray.
F M, I’ll beat another day.
Just a little note, it’s what I do;
words best convey my love of you.
While tomorrows may be better poetry,
nothing’s better than you for me.
I’m too old to be a rock star,
too young to drive a big car.
With a Bugs Bunny brain and body of Fudd,
both barrels blaze, half’s a dud.
In my high fidelity cartoon I animate,
pages fanned, notes came late.
Rhythm’s slowed, meter’s now feet,
when the song remains the same chapter’s complete.
Yet I’ve albums to fill and records to break,
while my quill gently weeps for time I ache.
Forgone conclusion’s the essence of love.
End’s never seen when flying above.
Optimism reigns and emotions pour.
Time will tell we know for sure.
Euphoria inspires –
with quills of flyers.
consumed we write.
Paid is the price,
life owed thrice.
Costly is consummation;
self, others or inspiration.
Haunted by desire,
time’s no higher.
in space we hide.
Sharing time, hearts and minds,
rightly seen writing blinds.
Is balance a lever to be had,
none ever being sad?
Parts whole, time’s inspired,
forwards given give required.
Love conjures unknowns within,
any choice a choice to begin.
My heart awaits the beat of two.
Life’s breathed into moments few.
Yesterdays on wings we flew.
Tomorrows soar hand in hand with you.
Tomorrow’s poem I’ve yet to write.
My day was full as is the night.
My mind is racing, my hand still.
Emotions’ flowing but dry is my quill.
My eyes grow heavy in search of light.
My body’s weary, none left to fight.
Soon I’ll dream of worlds unknown.
All ends the start of a new day grown.
While you slept I shared your dreams.
We’ve happy times and future schemes.
While you breathe my heart does beat.
When two’s in sync a life’s complete.
The sun will rise, the birds will sing.
Your eyes will open and joy it brings.
Our day will start in warm embrace.
The love is felt on your sunlit face.
I wrote this poem while driving,
forgive me for the bumps.
The roads behind were rocky,
we’ve all had our lumps.
This journey now is smoother,
more powerful every day.
Our path’s coasting forward,
surely it’s the way.
For every high there’s a low.
Without the rain there is no rainbow.
Without a fire there is no heat.
Hearts of ice seldom meet.
Pasts haunt and futures feared.
Inward bound or life shared.
Time is never what it seems.
Joyous am I you’re in my dreams.
