When You See the Sunset - Dec. 31, 2010

 When You See the Sunset

Wherever you have gone before, nothing can compare
To these wings you defiantly wear
Your flushed cheeks are flooded with silken tears
Falling on a heart without fear

You love life more when you can see the sunset
As an open invitation to forget
Everything which you know in fact to be true
Wandering deep inside of you

You say there is nothing blooming within your air
So these wings you must wear
Yet underneath it all you find you cannot fly
Fearless, in an unknown sky

Wherever you have gone before, matters not to me
Everything you are inside, I can see
I love you more than life itself, so do not forget
What is true, when you see the sunset

Calming Silence - Dec. 30, 2010

Calming Silence

A calming silence can hold its own beauty as a guide
When nothing at all, seems quite right
With barely a look at those storms outside
Turning quickly into dust
In your sight

Winds may blow within your hair, startling your spirit
Until calming silence's beauty you behold
Sprinkling you with a peace defined and delicate
Streaming wisps of serenity
Into your soul

Quite a message a calming silence brings to me
When nothing seems quite right
I barely look at those storms, you see
With all this peace streaming
Into my sight

Such beauty is found in the serenity of silence
Regardless of the winds that blow
My spirit is calmed in a definite balance
When silence streams into
My soul

Because - Dec. 28, 2010


Beneath a sea which keeps the names of all that whirl in grace
Far from the pages between your face and mine
Not because I came near to this place
Do I tremble at the beauty
Here I find

On the one hand the looks of lovers call to me in fragrant rains
Whispering from a melodious harp with no strings
On the other hand, I see you in everything
And I tremble at the beauty
Which you bring

Not because of lovely flowers that float gently on the winds
Falling as the sweetest sight to joyful tears
I tremble as I watch each petal descend
Filled with beauty so like you
Yet unaware

Turning Away - Dec. 27, 2010

Turning Away

While all my secrets lie motionless, I listen to their dreams
Drifting like broken shadows to my end of days
Rolling on into nothingness, where forever seems
To exist in realms that will not pass away

Are not the years long enough, to wake them from their sleep
So I may know the truth my conscience holds inside
Or will my secrets never honor me with all I hope they keep
Until their dreams I no longer listen to or confide

I heard the humming of a spinning wheel, perhaps my own
But the hand that turned the wheel was not mine
I wondered if the dreams of my secrets had all rolled on
To exist in realms my conscience could not find

While all my secrets were motionless, I listened to their dreams
Finding they held all the sorrows I could not see
As I had rolled them into nothingness, where forever seemed
To exist in realms where I did not wish to be

Persistence - Dec. 26, 2010


What softly stirs your precious heart to breathe
Shakes your very existence
Listens to those winds that sing, you see
Brings blessings to you
In abundance

Does it echo in the words of every woman or man
Like pearls dropped in golden light
Give you wings of desire to swiftly fly to lands
Alter your own purpose
Stand and fight

Can it unbind your soul, bring you peaceful sleep
While your heart plays in the sun
Does it gently replace the dreams you keep
Even when they have been shattered
By everyone

If nothing stirs your precious heart to breathe
Shakes your very existence
Keep listening to those winds that sing, you see
Those blessing will come to you
With persistence

Mountains Stand - Dec. 24, 2010

Mountains Stand

Mountains stand, yet only view, others as gusts of rain
Yet a dream stands there in silence
Even in this time our hearts can ascertain
It is here we can find our balance

There are footsteps seeking out tomorrow's fountains
Shining golden in their quest
That look up into the faces of these mountains
With silent dreams which never rest

To return to their homes, there is never any thought
When they see the gentle leaving of day
Feather across the peaks, when the eve is sought
Taking one more step along the way

There is blood on the sandals and gold in the hearts
Of the dreamers who quests are ascertained
Mountains stand
Viewing others as one side apart
While silent dreams, become much more
Than gusts of rain

Her Bonds - Dec. 22, 2010

Her Bonds

He tunes the bonds which hang on the mirror of the sea
Revealing deep meanings in the vaguest air
She likes to speak of him to me
When her day catches fire
And loses flair

She tells me of the good things he makes her feel
When he tunes the bonds up and down
Yet she wonders what is real
And if that mirror
Makes her world go round

Perfect joy she says he has shown her now
Seems that her cup runneth over
Yet as serenity takes a bow
Those deep meanings
Fail to hold her

She likes to speak of him to me on her cloudy days
I look through her eyes and see the truth
She tunes the bonds in her own way
And when her day catches fire
He becomes her excuse

The Chosen - Dec. 21, 2010

 The Chosen

I am the next full moon and I have chosen you
To dwell on high with me
While all the world sighs below our view
The atmosphere will glow in kind
When our faces here
It sees

The earth will sleep leaving all in our care
While we count slowly to ten
Laughing as clouds pass by in our air
Seeking to hide our eternal glow
Chased over rambling hills
By a fickle wind

You are the next new star in heaven's skies
I have now chosen you
To be the foundation on which I glide
I will wrap you in silver feelings
Until you become the sun
And say adieu

To Impress - Dec. 20, 2010

To Impress

Delicate nets collect on sailing clouds of violet mist
While red leaves twist and spin in turn
Gleaming sparks of dawn cannot be dismissed
As the scattered night sky
Is adjourned

Sweet water gathers in a dream's own reflection
On a whirling spider's silvery thread
Morning has broken needing no authentication
See her truth glowing there
In an intricate web

Tiny stones are surrounding sharp blades of grass
Worshiping the presence, they behold
Looking up from the shadows of a looking glass
With their own stories
Still untold

A leaping bass, splashes proudly in a silent pond
Each drop of water expressing its distress
Thinking that the sun was waiting to respond
To his shimmering silence
Used to impress

A single drop of water, a red leaf twisting in the wind
A spider weaving her web to be blessed
Even the tiny stones worshiping their friends
Leap with the bass, distressing the pond
To impress

Subtle Ray - Dec. 19, 2010

Subtle Ray

The secret of your smile glows like gold on the dreams I dream
In the darkest places, your voice is a silver-lighted sound
Millions of others can see your smile agleam
Yet not know, this happiness I've found

Embroidered moments of pleasure entwine around my heart
While the brightest moon shines silently above
Ever wide is the subtlest ray you impart
When you smile, I can feel your love

Your voice is a shining echo that claims my constant heart
I will always treasure each word as a precious pearl
From the moment, first light of dawn imparts
Still, when all light leaves this world

Might I ever go searching for your smile to gild my day
Your voice to light the darkness in my heart
Embroidered in the riches, only you can send my way
With the widest subtle ray, your smile imparts

The Rose of Time - Dec. 18, 2010

The Rose of Time

Wake within my heart that which should return
To claim the fragrance of a rose
Look at me with eyes that burn
Into the essence
Of my soul

Remind my spirit where it once wandered
Of the dreams that it held
Stir me with the sweetest words
Until I recall the love
My heart felt

Show me ripples in the dancing sea
We created as we shook
The earth where we once stood
Before time and distance
This place took

Remove these veils from mine eyes
With your lips in a caress
Wake within my heart a wondrous cry
And I will claim the rose of time's
Fragrance blessed

Time Hailed the Wind - Dec. 17, 2010

Time Hailed the Wind

From a flaming fire, Time hailed the Wind
Because he was enamored
By the way she scattered leaves in gusts so sweet
He celebrated her beauty by running his hands backward
Whirling streaks of fire in flaming heat

Morning beckoned to the hands of Time to see the Ocean wide
To try and end his celebration of the Wind
Hoping he would be enamored
By the changing tide
His backward running, he would then unwind

Time's flaming fire burned higher, as he felt a breeze
Flowing cool, on his quickly spinning hands
No rest would he find, until the Wind he pleased
Ignoring Morning, he moved even faster
Surely, she would understand

Evening persuaded Morning to leave this post to him
Thinking he could stop Time's ardent quest
Yet he forgot that true love cannot be dimmed
When he showed him all the stars
He loved best

From a flaming fire, Time hailed the Wind
Knowing that she was his one desire
Morning and Evening could never stop his hands
For Time's love for the Wind
Fed his fire

Tender Voices - Dec. 16, 2010

Tender Voices

The same tender voice in your thoughts, I can hear in mine
Repeating claims which dust the wings of time
However much they flow, you will surely always find
Underneath the wings those voices
Are sublime

On the shores of our hearts we walk a similar line
Finding joy in the meeting of the two
Only there do we let go of differences we find
Within the space that separates
Our view

The waters that touch our shores swirl almost the same
As those waters on a hundred other shores
Yet they do not know the name
Of the tender voice we hear in our thoughts
Whispering the same

In our hearts we have a need to hear this tender voice
Repeating claims which lift the wings of time
However much they flow, we find we have no choice
We have to listen to the rhythm
Of their rhyme

Today - Dec. 15, 2010


Far off I felt a pulse that danced among the wildest winds
Heard like a distant echo when twilight came
I sought to listen with my heart and ears once again
Found out, that yesterday, was its name

In time I wore a rose of red, made of paper promises
Blew satin kisses to a snow white dove
Forgot to feel the pulse and found myself powerless
Twilight came and took away my love

I drowned my rose in tears that danced upon my face
Sought to listen with my heart and ears again
Found out, that yesterday, found another place
No longer dancing in the wildest winds

My satin kisses I took away from the snow white dove
Stood waiting for the first light of day
Far off I felt a pulse that danced in the arms of love
I reached out and found its name is today

Satin Spoon - Dec. 14, 2010

Satin Spoon

A curve of satin sits idly beneath a sight so deeply moved
Amid the stillness of a hope that longs to rise
The moon smiles down, as if he approves
A dream pursued by the eyes

The softest sound takes flight in a voices sweetest tune
In a misty stream of pale moonlight
Hands are clasped in a curving spoon
A taste of hope in sheer delight

Thrilled hearts sigh, dreaming of a blissful hour
Weep with joy as their wonder shows
The perfect bloom of a dream filled flower
A curve of satin did bestow

Hope shines in the misty moonlight, on the sweetest tune
A constant vigil in a dream pursued tonight
Swells inside two hearts which spoon
Deeply moved in their delight

Skies of Youth - Dec. 13, 2010

Skies of Youth

You once again wore the skies of windy youth
Held in the temple by our roaring sea
Holding on to a call of truth
For the gifts you gave
To me

From a corner of dear evening's quiet beauty
I came to you in devoted honor
You turned your garments here to me
Again the skies of youth
Were your admirer

Expressions were pounding, no time to think
Sunlight would soon be gleaming
If this was a dream, I refused to blink
I wished to stay here
In my dreaming

Who would be so cruel as to wake me now
As I adore the skies, you wear
Let the sun shine upon another brow
For now we climb
The stairs

Stand In The Break - Dec. 12, 2010

Stand In The Break

Who will climb the night breeze to see time pass
Keep the minutes safe in their mind
Pursue heaven in the spirit of a looking glass
Suspended above, a world unkind

Who will take to wing and gently rise above
Everything for which they yearn
To fulfill the promise made by a dove
Then live by the lessons learned

Who will always pursue what others try to elude
With head high but never aloof
Be silently attentive in all they conclude
Hold to hope, without any proof

Who will hang high up on the moon to sing
Until the sun reappears in the sky
Sending hope into a world unkind with a ring
That echoes from their voice on high

Just For You - Dec. 11, 2010

Just For You

I want to be divided in a downward rush
To see where color hides
Scale high walls in a garden lush
Then roam at will, to where
Mischief abides

When time draws near for the rising moon
I want to feel my heart released
Be at command with options tuned
Yet still have one knee bent
In calming peace

I want to thrill at life and bask in its freshness
Cheerfully go on and on and on
Hold wisdom in long embraces
Feel the greatest delight in my heart
Before I meet the dawn

When first light comes to greet my face
I may find more to do
If not, then I will gladly stand in place
With these arms wide open
Just for you

Until I Write a Tale - Dec. 10, 2010

Until I Write a Tale

Until I write a tale which surpasses the beauty of a rose
Shakes the face of the sun 'til he smiles
Creates a fabric, I alone chose
To hold in my hands

Until my hand recalls the melody, I sang long ago
Its words beam from the spirit of my ink
Into each breaking of day I know
Upon these pages I will write
All I think

No words shall I ever forget to whisper within
Until I know, you can hear them all
In the spirit of my verse again
And you forget
Your walls

Until I write a tale which touches the very soul of you
Makes you smile along with the sun
I will weave these words it's true
'Till this fabric I chose
Is done

Your Heart Writes - Mine Adores - Dec. 09, 2010

Your Heart Writes - Mine Adores

I know and treasure the love you hold for me
And my heart beats back to yours
How thrilling to peruse the pages of ecstasy
That your heart writes
And mine adores

I read living lines that pierce my waking heart
Upon each lovely page I see
Each word justly claims myself to be a part
Of you
As you are, of me

Because I know you love me unquestionably
And my heart beats back to yours
I continue reading these lines with glee
That your heart writes
And mine adores

Such powerful writing a heart can display
When a heart beats back in return
How thrilling to peruse these pages each day
Watch love growing
As they turn

Gleaming Jewel of the Leaves - Dec. 08, 2010

Gleaming Jewel of the Leaves

I looked out from a heart that hoped and saw a precious jewel
Unafraid of my gleaming leaves or the way I speak
With a heart unselfish and never cruel
Shining as in a dream
A light to seek

The air sprouted new leaves as time and space stood still
Touching these gleaming leaves of my own
What a heavenly gesture I could feel
Radiating from this jewel

Clearly, in my sight, my pulse quickened at the view
As these leaves kissed my gleaming green
Such treasure I found in a jewel
When I looked out in hope

Never again will I see my world the same as before
Because I saw a precious jewel
With air my leaves adore
A heart unselfish
Never cruel
