Off Kilter

the sun rises from the south
sets in the north
rivers run upstream
back into the lakes and mountains
rain drifts upward
into a cloudless sky
heat floods the existence
when night becomes day

the world becomes a place
where animals roam freely
undisturbed by mankind
flowers and trees no longer bloom
wilting back into themselves
imploding down into the earth
nothing is as it was

as everything seems off today

Just Tired

I am just
I am tired
weakness consuming
I want to love you
I want to give you my all
I open the doors
inviting you in
to take hold of the woman
I was
I am
I will be
for me, in return
to love you unconditionally
I do
I am just
I am tired
of opening my heart
I am just
I am tired

Autumn Rising

Kissing the nectars of succulent summer
Replaced with
Crisp, Cool Nights
sun beaming through branches bare
Autumn rising
Pumpkin delight
Pumpkin seeds
Pumpkin pie
Pumpkin quiche
Figs with sweet honey
Nuts galore
Collard Greens
Leeks and
Soup, let it shine!
Butternut Squash
Roasted Tomato and Red Pepper
Red Plush Wine devine
Cranberries and Yams
Sweet Potatoes too!
Apples consuming
Fugi, Cortland, Gala, Red Delicious
Embracing the warmth
Lurking behind the comforting door
of warm Cinnamon Apple Pie baking
Cider in sight
Fall Colors Alight!

desire to love, be loved
hold tight the encompassing
moon of fate
lying nude under beckoning angst
raptured in comforting arms
holding tight
lovers abode
shadows weep window trace
coolness drifting along
heated bodies embraced
sleep easy rest
Dreaming haze
passionate, forsaken
rising sun, transfixed light
she turns to the lover
not of hearts' pine
eyes closed
lovers entwine
mourning kiss of dew

It is I

Maybe it is I
who cares too much
who loves too deeply
who knows no boundaries
who is too passionate
who can not hold her tongue
who gives too freely
who holds back too much
who speed rails through life
who is careless with her heart
who seeks love time and again
who pushes it away
who finds it in the crease of each smile
who forgives too often
who can save herself
who already has
maybe it is I

Day Light

it was day light
the sun shone bright
in the cool autumn air
you looked at me
tilting your head, observing
you said
you look wonderful today
the blue of your shirt
capturing the intensity of your eyes
you look vibrant and happy

it was later that i realized
you had never seen me
in the day light

At Once

At once,
her hair was long shiny golden locks
At once,
her eyes were big blue ambiguous diamonds
At once,
her body long lean flexible agile
At once,
her frame curvaceous sensual seductive
At once,
her skin flawless pale pink dimpled
At once,
her lips pouty plush inviting
At once,
she danced gracefully in circles of delight
under the moonlit starry nights
At once,
her voice was intense pure finely tuned
to the key stroke of the piano
At once,
she stole the heart of every man
with the whisk of her grin twirl of her finger
At once,
she was a dreamer
At once,
her dreams all came true
At once,
was a long time ago...

I'm here, my friend

Place it here, this angst, this pain
hidden beneath you
you carry the spite
of wrongful gain
place it here,
within me,
to hold the burden
of which has stolen your light
taking it in, myself
to buckle down
under chains intertwined,
in the tormented minds
of the unfaithful
bare it down
pass it along
place your heavy heart
on the ground stone
of our friendship
entrust in me,
to nurture this bereavement
absorbing it, I vow
to sooth it smooth
into silken cashmere
of which I will tuck you in
under softness

Smiles Spreading

Smile spread
Smile contagious
be It
bent and crooked
wide and bright
It spreads to me
seeping through you
in the light of day
dark of night
Smile wide
to a friend
a stranger
right or wrong
may the Smile spread
one by one

Still My Heart

quiet stillness rests in my heart
the thumpty thump
ribcages rest
Love-abound riveted past
heart a flutter, butterfly beauty
wing span spread
with ease and grace
opening your palm,
blowing wishes in the evening breeze
releasing gently
to pitter patter on my new found
whisked within
serene surrender obliged
my heart hushed
