Shapes become shadows in your light
Perspectives become undefined
Enigmas, the eyes cannot disclose
...elongated, smooth, liquified 

Your light permeates the iridescent 
Reflecting an ambient ethereal glow
Illuminating things obscured in daylight
Majestic... enkindles rainbow halos

I hope my eyes never become accustomed 
To the halcyon quality that you so deftly instil
Making the drab, dirty, disheveled
Shine irrefutable, randomly... at your will

Upon the whisper of the breeze, do you 
hear the words I wish to speak to you?

In the sun's warmth, do you feel my heart 
radiate the fondness I feel for you?

Way up in the clouds, do you see my face 
as I gaze affectionately down upon you?

In the rain can you taste my tears of joy as 
I fall deeply... passionately in love with you?

As the day closes and the moon wanes, 
do you know I think only of you

...only of you

Just out of reach (Tanka)

Just out of reach, her
dreams lingered... and was the heart
that she so desired
Perplexed, bereft... frustrated
Oh why had the gods conspired...

Autumn's Charms (Monotetra)

It's time for summer to forget
Gaia's locks turning a brunette 
Amber, russet add to palette 
Leaves pirouette, leaves pirouette

With log fire lit, the nights draw in
Trees' foliage becoming thin
On Halloween we dance and sing
The children grin, the children grin

Dazzling fireworks frequent the skies 
Awe and wonder sparkle in eyes
Trick or Treat still a great surprise 
Lush pumpkin pie, lush pumpkin pie

With skies turned grey and winter near
Dew jewelled on lawns; nature's tears
Conkers swinging throughout the years 
We make good cheer, we make good cheer

Dream Keeper

If I bring you my dreams
Would you keep safe my heart
Lift me up from beneath 
Would you swathe me in stars

Could we ride the night on moonbeams 
Set sail on candy-floss clouds 
Swing on a pearlescent, crescent moon
Take a spaceship to Mars

When it's time to return
Would you shield me from the sun
Protect me from stormy rain clouds
Helter skelter down turbulent cyclones

Keeping me safe in your arms 
We could catch the rainbow express 
Transcending every hue 
Of life's prerequisite shrouds 

I know this is nonsense and yes 
...part of me never grew up
Though with you as my dream keeper
To life's harsh realities, I'll keep the door shut 

Although, please tread gently
As I have so far to fall
My mind frequents the Milky Way
Imagination guards my soul

*MOTHER* (Acrostic Poem)

*M* atriarch empathic and kind; self sacrifices and never minds 
*O* racle, generous and patient; in life we're always adjacent 
*T* ender, loving and dependable; empowers me to be more able
*H* onest, fair and humble; dusts me off whenever I stumble 
*E* ffervescent, ageless and fun; from no problem she shuns
*R* esourcefull , dedicated and real; always knows how I feel!

Autumn's symphony (haiku)

symphony, return

A Lonely Crowd

Muted souls drenched in the daily mundane
Eyes void... caught up in life's big 'Money' game
From pleasantry glances they choose to refrain

Every morning the same people
Lost in thoughts of their life's upheaval
Disregarding others as their equal

I wonder... every once in a while
Why they don't reach out, go that extra mile
To acknowledge; share... just a simple smile

Lavender (haiku)

lavender's scent soothes -
fractious, troubled thoughts; amidst
tempestuous skies

Memories live on (haiku)

Archangel (Tanka)

Masculine frame glints
beneath the light of the moon
Donning wings of strength
...yet he cries a lake of tears
for the souls he could not reach

Ensnared (Butterfly Cinquain)

by hypnotic 
dark promise of passion
Allure spun gilded web shackles
To his every
whim... insatiable lust
His pet... he wishes to play with

Betwixt and Between

Betwixt the vivid, dancing images and emotional 
essence of my jaded... once flamboyant past;
I tightrope cautiously into an unpredictable future, 
shadowed in apprehension and self-doubt
My heart's left dangling, swinging erratically
inbetween my fragile hopes and endless fears
As the dream clouds disperse, the gentle smog
of delusion lifts and cold stark reality clouts
I'm left stunned, my cocoon abruptly broken;
whilst freed from denial's slumber at last
My senses sharpen, my perspective realigns
and yet still... for you... my soul sheds futile tears

Return To Me, My Love

In the place of my return
I sit where we sat... patiently
For you and your embrace 

I witness the day's glorious hues
The Moon Goddess wax and wane
The seasons merge with grace

The bustle and waste of precious life
Lonely Down and Outs ... ignored 
Lost souls who frequent our place 

I wonder when, to me you will return
As I took my life... to reunite with you!
But my essence now seems trapped in space 
Return to me, my love
As I returned to you...
