Lunar-love

I know, now, you love me for I see,
awash, your face graceful deepening
As your prism eyes perceive truly me,
refracting colours which I'm feeling

Your gentle tones, lifting my esprit,
cast light on my doubt-fuelled darkling
Night's tinctures of love envelope me
Your ambience soothes my weakening

Supermoon Luna Eclipse 2015

This eve the earth's betwixt the moon and sun
Her sanguine veil is cast upon the moon
Moonlight a myth; without sun, moon has none
Skywatchers gaze in awe of the Blood Moon 
Many though fear prophecies
Rare celestial alignment's dark omen
Heaven's lights, God's sure sign in history
Humanity, alas, now seems broken 
If sky phenomenon portends great change
Please through cataclysm let hatred decrease 
As priorities have become deranged 
Let's pray this lunar eclipse foretells peace 
Or will futile bloodshed, echo the moon? 
Is it too late for the world to attune?

Umbrella Love

Fire-rain 
cascades, 
golden,
upon 
the mirrored pavement,
bounces
at our feet; 
refracting 
the lamp's light
it splinters,
illuminates 
the street

Here 
beneath this 
humble
umbrella, 
we are 
dry and warm;
cocooned  
in love's 
sweet solace spectrum 
safe together  
from life's
raging storms

This Book Of Me

There are many things I am
Things that make me, *me*
I am empathic litmus paper 
to all the suffering that I perceive 

I've been the gasoline poured
on a lover's wanton flame 
I am often quite nostalgic 
wishing things would stay the same

I can be confusingly contrary -
an animal lover who still eats meat?!?
In my youth, sometimes flirtatious 
whisking admirers off their feet

I can be painfully naive 
just as a teen's first love
Usually peaceful and serene
just as the wild but gentle dove 

I'm like the hardy dandelion seed
surfing daydreams in the air
I've occasionally been a game player
but I've always tried to play fair 

I'm a wanderlust driven soul 
seeking to lie beneath the stars
A great lover of eclectic music 
the only common denominator - guitar 

I'm an echo friendly warrior 
who cares passionately about the earth
A proud mother of three 
and I wallow in their mirth 

You see there are many sides to me
Just like you, I am not one thing
I am multifaceted and unique 
like the precious diamond on my ring 

So please take your time to know me
do not judge me on what you see
There are many chapters still unread
in this book... that is me

Mistress Dawn

I've lain this night next to you and watched the moon polish the sky
Listened to the owl's sweet serenade with our bodies entwined 
I have seen the stars fall; one by one, from the sky 
Mirroring the direction of my tears which I've silently cried

This dawn my love is, for now, to be our last
Our precious time it dwindles, withers too fast 
Whilst you sleep the room taunts me with echoes of our time
Your laugher lingers upon your smile, your slumbering beauty evokes mine

I don't think I've ever seen, such a stunning work of art
The sight of you naked, eyes etch with precision my heart
Each little detail my love presses like a flower, tightly to preserve 
My mind struggles to comprehend, as you're more than I deserve  

Oh how I wish I could cage the sun and forbid her to rise
How I wish the moonlight would stay to dance again in your eyes
Although, I fear its already too late as I sense the dawn creep through the blinds
Her subtle ethereal, ambient glow tortures my mind

As I know what today your duty demands
That you'll travel away, to a far distant land
One of conflict, death, hate and despair
One that I know you'll try your best to repair

So I curse the dawn as she pools on my floor
I beg her to make a retreat, I plead, I implore
Through tear filled eyes I see you stir, begin your day
Like a mistress she comes and from me she takes you away

Cleansed

As gentle waves caress my feet,
cleanse my soul;
gracefully dance waltz with beach,
whisper tales untold
Jewelled-sun showers golden heat, 
at last warms my day,
silk-breeze unfolds my cares,
blows them all away
My mind's rocked upon the crest 
of distant waves, 
anxiety slips away;
my sanity's saved
Again with hope I meet;
a friend I'd lost
The future now I'll greet  
...peace has no cost

The Boy On The Beach

Please don't let my little life be in vain;
ignore my people's suffering and pain
We've been displaced through no fault of our own; 
too scared to stay in what once was our home

Left our families, possessions behind; 
hoping and praying that peace we would find
Taking perilous risks... just to be free
Cruel twist of fate made me refugee

It's too late for me; the sea claimed my life 
Father mourns also my brother... and wife
My name was *Alan*, "the boy on the beach"
Empathise with compassion... I beseech

Thoughts

        I am torn in two
through thoughts of you
                 but
         will thoughts 
               ever
                be...
            enough?

Please... Help Me!

I had home, 
Smartphone,
wife...
good life

You're just like me
but now...
I'm Refugee

I wish...

I wish to make you so happy
Make every dream of yours come true
Blow gently away your grey skies 
Fill your days with clear azure blue

I wish to feel my hand in yours 
Reunite our souls... eye to eye
Hear your laughter dance in my heart
Release our true love from fear's guise 

I wish to banish the ocean 
which keeps us physically apart
Join each of our lands together
Paint new horizons with love's art

I wish to lie beneath the stars
we entwined amidst the heather
Share deepest thoughts at they unfold
as our hopes begin to tether

I wish to be your companion 
between us a home we could mould 
Create a safe solace bubble 
Escape to our very own world
