Deck-chairs                  and blankets

Humanity's Hope

like a new dawn
Horizons still to
be painted and explored
Effulgent is their essence
...wise and winsome illumined ways
Permeating our darkness with hope 
Transcending dissolution... teaching love!

every abandoned  curve revealed
...I'm yours!

whispers on the breeze
blushing clouds in the azure 
birdsong's tight medley
this place...where our love once grew an empty meadow view
barefoot I walk... without you!

Sapphire, serene, celestial night 
Sequin stars, perfect pinpricks, bright 
A warm, velvet embrace excites
Their fervour grows and sparks ignite

When they make love it feels so right 
Becoming one as they unite 
Illuminated hearts take flight 
Beneath the cool, silken, starlight

Beneath the cool silken, starlight 

Sequin stars, perfect pinpricks, bright 

Two souls full of admiration 

Lost in mutual appreciation 

A warm, velvet embrace excites

Sapphire, serene, celestial night 

Illuminated hearts take flight 

Overwhelming pure devotion

Beneath the cool, silken, starlight

When they make love it feels so right

Their fervour grows and sparks ignite

Lovers lie entwined in passion

Glowing with sublime satisfaction  

Becoming one as they unite 

Beneath the cool, silken starlight

Grief (senryu)

still too numb to feel the pain

My Place Of Sanctuary (Kyrielle Sonnet tweeked)

My place of sanctuary 
Where I frequent at night
Away from all who fight
My sacred place to write
...beneath the cool moonlight

It's where I feel most free
In vocabulary 
When words flow from my pen
My heart it soars in flight 
I hope this will not end
Rhyme has become my friend
...beneath the cool moonlight
I linger for awhile

My place of sanctuary
It's often where I smile
...beneath the cool moonlight
my mind becomes fertile

Diamond (senryu)

imperfection's charms
shine no matter if in light
- a diamond you are

Swinging... suspended in a dimension that we label as time 
I ponder my seconds, minutes, hours, days, nights, weeks, years; 
my working shifts, holidays and time that I've wasted on the mundane 
To a child, who truly experiences the joys of each moment... I wish to return

To splash in a reflective, cloud-filled silver puddle of forbidden fun 
To slide heedlessly down a helter skelter, in a sack, at supersonic speed
To blow iridescent bubbles of delight... such poppable propositions of awe
To be at one... happy... consumed within a moment 
Losing the need to divide my time into fake components

Mix-tape Love

Lost in mix-tape melancholy; malignant madness was that love
Intoning lovingly his precious name as I slept in his football scarf 
An empty photo frame haunted; in which our smiles once beamed
In safe arms, a starlit car journey, that later tore me at the seams
Petals glued upon my doorstep that spelled out his love for me
A perfect proposal by a lake that veered into treacherous seas

Then came an aeroplane ascending, taking with it all my dreams 
A bluey beneath a pillow, a tear-stained, religious, midnight read
Tender, timely words that reassured; when in my greatest need 
A fist through a door; possessions heaped in hatred on the lawn
Contented, passionate weekends; curled up, in idle, blissful yawns
A ring once grand now jaded; a familiar friend that adorns my hand
Our love a headless, heroic, heretic and yet together we still stand

Nature's Artistry

Art by Samy Charnine ~'Almost Time

I Dream In Myths Of Ancients

I need to learn, to 
you I should not bare my soul
It's obvious you 
don't get me... we're not mirrored.
You and I don't make a whole 

Because of Zeus, am
I condemned to walk alone?
Four legs, four arms,  two 
faces, he clean split in two 
..soul mates trying to find home 

If it's just a myth,
then why do I feel so lost?
My soul yearns for a
kindred other, my other 
half... will our paths ever cross? 

Perhaps if I drown
in a sea of tears, I'll find
my kingfisher mate;
or if I hold my torch fast...
the wind won't doom my love's fate

Don't listen to me!
My head frequents clouds; I dream
in myths of ancient
Maybe I just need to ground 
myself...learn to be patient

Flower (haiku)

The Unseen

I tell you it's better this way 
...I want to beg you to stay
The smile upon my face hides 
..all the nights that I've cried 

You tell me you need to see me
...I tell you to free 

I want you to be so happy just can't be with me

I remind you of choices we've made 
...I feel my dreams futilely fade 

You say, I'm always on your mind
...I deny our thoughts are entwined  

I implore you... you must walk away
...I know I'll pine... day upon day 

The time has now come... we must part
...I'm left with my unseen... tortured heart

Seek Me

Who am I
but a plethora of contradictions 
A tome lying unopened
A stratum within the void
... a galaxy of endless love

I ask thee then
untangle me from my idiosyncrasies
Turn delicately... wanton pages
Dive into my heuristic, hidden depths 
Seek me... in the vast mesosphere above

Please Say You'll Be My Valentine

Oh please say you'll be my Valentine 

Darling, I promise, of you, I'll take good care

I will treasure you, until the end of time 

So proud I'd be to call you mine

With you, all I have and am, I will share

Oh please say you'll be my Valentine 

I'll be forever faithful; I'll tow the line

I'll protect and guard your heart, I swear

I will treasure you, until the end of time 

It was love at first sight, I heeded the signs

With me by your side, you'll know not despair

Oh please say you'll be my Valentine 


If you deny me now, I forever would pine

There is no hardship or pain I wouldn't bear 

I will treasure you, until the end of time 

Together we'll live a life of love, so sublime

On me you can depend; I will always be there

Oh please say you'll be my Valentine 

I will treasure you, until the end of time

I... Love You

*L* onging for you when you are not near

*O* miting to say how I feel, due to fear

*V* eracious are the feelings I feel for you

*E* verlasting, I know in my heart that it's true 

*Y* earning deeply, the insatiable desire I feel inside 

*O* pportune moment never comes, so instead I hide  

*U* nimaginable lengths I go to... ironically, to disguise
