Reflections

there are times
my reflection is unrecognizable
unpleasant to observe
muddied by the deeds
that betray my character
when lies to myself
have denounced
my identity

 I scurry away
from the image
the falsified reflection
least the guilt
of misdeeds consumes me

 I stray from the mirror
until I purge  the iniquitous act
from my thoughts and intention
when self is revived
my truth, once again alive
until I have forgiven the sin
of pretense, in order to be loved

 then, only then
do I behold my reflection
cleansed of wrongful thoughts
purified in honesty
appealing to my heart
a pulchritudinous image
to a conscience of individuality
embraced by an honest soul

River of Love

 

Completion

 

I was created
the other half of you
destined to fill the hole
in your soul
to replace
the missing part
in my heart
to complete you
by completing me

a harmonious union
we were two
imperfect souls
the missing links
now connected
the puzzle solved
the answers reached
two souls evolved
perfected love
is now complete

The Memory of You

 

I dance in the field
where last we lay together
nestled in the bed of velvet green
scent of wildflowers awakening desire

wild as the wind we were
stealing kisses and passionate caresses
in the sweet indulgence of Eros
dancing thru grasses tall, once more

I feel the warmth of your embrace
the magic of your tender kiss
remains a sweet taste upon my lips
immersed in the memory of you

Promise in a Music Box

  meet me tomorrow at daybreak
at the ocean shore, he implored
an anticipated lover’s rendezvousmusic box
hopeful promise ~ a secret new

morning sun danced across the sea
found his note along with the key
lovely locked porcelain music box
good-bye token he’d left for me

Bittersweet melody a farewell song
lover’s promise already gone

I’ll always love you but cannot stay
sea is my mistress I cannot betray
this porcelain box ~ song that it plays
reminder ~ in my heart you’ll stay

I Am Alive

a pervasive stalker ever-present
your scent an encircling mist
your whisper in the rustling trees
your kiss in the morning breezeAlive

torrid passion like the sun’s blaze
admiration in your piercing gaze
laughter like a burbling stream
enticing me in delicious dreams

walking with you in every way
calefacient thoughts every day
senses filled to overflowing
I breathe you in
I am alive

Never Loses A Beat

What Would You Say


What would you say if you knew that I loved you
Would you invite me always to walk by your side
Or…
Would my loyalty overwhelm you
Would you abruptly brush me aside

What would you say if you were my refuge
With gentle strength would you hold me near
Or…
Would my need seem so weighty
That you’d take flight in fear

What would you say knowing you were my star
Would your reflection serve as my guide
Or…
Would you desert me in darkness
With arrogance in your stride

What would you say if my heart was yours
Would we join hands in a union of souls
Or…
Would you refuse to walk holding hands
painting my heart the color of coal

What would you say to my burning hunger
Would you own me in the blazing fire
Or…
Would you run from the flame
Leaving me to freeze my desire

Give thought to these questions I pose
Will you accept the love I offer today
Or…
Will I always be wondering
Just what you would say

Cactus Flower

 

She was pretty as a cactus flower
wild and free as a summer breeze
auburn tresses extending
far below delicate shoulders
tossed with the shake of her head
bursting with lusty laughter
coral lips and jade colored eyes
a peaches and Cream complexion

She was stranger to no one
warm with a heart of gold
smile that stole evey heart in the place
as she kicked up her leather etched cowgirl boots
twirling swirling layered petticoats
skipping through the do si do
of the Arizona square dance
all eyes upon the comely cactus flower
and she was the love of his life

Woodland Nymph

 
In the autumn mist an orphic nymph
dancing with butterflies
in the enchanted woodlands
mesmerized a nomadic scribe
seeking inspiration in the forest

her ethereal beauty ~ alluring
her sensual mystique ~ seductive
her fragile demeanor ~ endearing

 her spirit held the charm
scribe became entranced
sprightly nymph whispered melody
in the poet’s dispirited heart
joined two souls as one
