The Matador

courageous and bold
a story so old  
met his match
in a woman
he dared hold
blazing passion
revealed in her eyes
held his intrigue
this was his prize
he fought with lust
bribed with love
she gave him one night
then flew like a dove
freedom her spirit
seduced by fire
the great matador
unable to pirate
could only admire

you were a champion of spunk
my companion..my joy
unconditional love
always at the door
a joyous tail wagging greeting
we traveled the country
from the east to the west
climbing boulders..walking beaches
exploring mountain trails
barely escaped the Javelina
because of your excited bark

six pounds of tireless energy
right up til the end
fearless against your peers
five times your size
each new crazy adventure
you were an explorer
sniffing out the trail
settling right in like a pioneer
 never a bother
you were my daily cheer

16 years we were a team
I have to admit
life is a little boring
since your departure
your antics..full of personality
we fit perfectly
right from the start
you owned my heart
you will always be a part
of my memories..of my soul

Far-away Places and so Many Faces


I’ve traveled around the world
exotic resorts and humble dwellings
have been my residence
I’ve lived with kings
married a prince
been a slave in a dungeon
rescued by thieves in a forest
war is familiar to me
sent my sons to fight for freedom
I’ve tilled the land of a southern plantation
til my fingers bled and my back was stooped
I’ve built estates, my land plundered
I’ve sat on the throne over a kingdom

Pirates kidnapped me and took me to sea
drunks have taken my virginity
A vampire’s kiss gave me immortality
I’ve been loved deeply by many men
hated by women and men alike
been a devil, a witch, even a saint
saved lives and freed countries
been a cruel master and a gentle beast
loving mother, an abusive land owner
filled my senses with cherry blossoms
honey suckle, magnolia and roses
fed on the delicacies of the very rich
lavished in velvet, silk, diamonds and pearls

I’ve married great men and evil monstersfaraway-231x300
been a heroine, honored and cherished
fought Indians in the wild wild west
owned a brothel and sang for the men
I’ve known the joy of giving birth  
held a newborn suckling my breast
been a leader in a feminist march
traveled by stagecoach
 crept thru a desert
air, land and sea kept me free
how is it my life is so full
to have traveled to far-away places
worn the mask of so many faces
through the pages of a adventure story
my imagination was set free to fly

Twisted Paths of Life


The strange twisted paths of life
delusive smooth riding blacktop;
free-falling ride of dreams unfolding
winding parkways of beauteous landscapes
avenues of pleasant expectations
alleys of promise for the sojourner

Awaken foolish ambler; reality strikes
out of control into the misfortune
traffic accidents on the circle of life
Struck down into abysmal gutters
seeming failure, soul cries out despair
cobbled outgrowths thwarting your ambition

Fear not, the path is only obscured
each rutted road is a lesson journeyed
gnarled struggles moving you forward
twisted alleys forcing concentrated effort

Failure is illusion, a pause ~ an amber light
take the green light of fulfillment ~ venture
courageously the lurking unknown paths
the journey is perfected if you do not tire out
