Raining on the Fields - February 28, 2011

Raining on the Fields

You linger in love letters and sleep deeply within souls
Often, observed in the look in one's eyes
Those windows where shadows hold time will reveal
Spirit's of feelings, nameless and faceless
Yet, not to be denied

You rain on the fields of a forgotten melody so sweet
As soft feathers from a time standing still
Dancing on the toes' of the soul, you sleep within
Kept alive in the touch of a teardrop's salt
As master of all will

You hide quickly away within the warmth of a smile
While your sweet music continues to play
To be held as an unforgotten scent within a soul
Whose eyes have pulled down the shades
On those feelings today

Glory in Shades of Gray - Feb. 27, 2011

Glory in Shades of Gray

A new tear parted last night from an ocean of eternity
Where it had once laid shivering and sweet
Beginning to comprehend those words of comfort
From a spirit that has awakened within
Every eye you meet

Looking up for peace of mind outside of black and white
Thoughts hold a subtle sweetness all around
This new tear stares into the breath of expectation
Seeing glory in beautiful shades of gray
Now wonderfully profound

An old tear reveals lips that speak to us of retribution
Losing sight of what is right and wrong
Telling stories that have no place at all to go
Except dark hills carried in our souls
For way too long

A new tear parted last night from an ocean of eternity
Defining hope in feelings now recognized
In all those words of comfort proceeding forth
From the spirit awakening within
These smiling eyes

Life's Battlefield - February 25, 2011

 Life's Battlefield

Will you run for the highest mountain, when all goes wrong
Roam unlit streets, like a roving lion
Or stand here by me and sing our song
Will you dry my tears
When I am crying

Will you hate me for all my faults and weaknesses
Let floods carry me where they may
Or bring to me your peacefulness
Hold me close
On my worst of days

Will you be that fiery dragon, who sets my heart aflame
Fiercely, burns my free spirit down
Or my noble knight, who returns honor to my name
Before another night
Comes round

Will your feet wander where the winds may call
Leave me wondering, never knowing
Or will you catch me before I fall
'Cause the same way
We are going

If you hear a cry of battle, will you run safely for the hills
When you see me raise up my spear
Or will you place in front of me your shield
Will you be my guide and my protector
Here, on Life's Own Battlefield

Underneath a Whisper of Darkness - Feb 24, 2011

Underneath a Whisper of Darkness

Underneath a whisper of darkness, lies a candle burning
Fear and suspicion caress the flame
Invisible hands of time lay at rest and waiting
Softly murmuring in words of ink
Across the page

The sound of scars echo in the whisper of darkness
Breathing in the essence of the flame
While time rolls words in the crystal ink of pain
Upon the pages of the heart
That still remains

Experience fades to colors that whisper in the darkness
Softly playing with edges of the flame
As time slowly spreads the ink across the pages
Of an existence eagerly awaiting
To live again

Underneath a whisper of darkness, lies a candle waiting
Within a heart held prisoner by a mind
Caressed by the scars of fear and suspicion
So deeply engraved by invisible
Hands of time

Layers of Faces - Feb. 22, 2011

Layers of Faces

Under layers of faces there exist journeys held in silence
Constantly unraveling inside as heart strings
Pulled to the surface they can quickly shift these layers
Into smiles, tears or a burning anger not predicted
Instantly changing everything

Memories held within the layers of faces never disappear
What the heart has gazed upon remains
Deeply engraved in the tender fibers of our souls
As burning embers buried under time's ash
Sparked......becomes a flame

What is banished often still exists under these layers
Inside the spirit of all our heart strings
Our journeys may leave vivid scars held in silence
But they will also leave lessons in layers
Used to change everything

As the First Time - February 21, 2011

As the First Time

I turned the pages where I wrote down your name
Reading every line as the first time
Although each letter did not spell out the same
Your heart was in each word
In every rhyme

I read the depths of my own heart in verses
Reading every line as the first time
Although not a single word was rehearsed
Each letter spelled out your name
In my mind

I turned the pages where I wrote down your name
Reading every one as the first time
I wondered to myself if I still felt the same
If my heart still held each word close
To every rhyme

Then I turned the pages over and I took out my pen
Began writing every line as the first time
My heart began to sing as I read once again
That your heart was in each word
Of every rhyme

Tender Honesty - Feb. 20, 2011

Tender Honesty

As my heart surrenders to this place of hours
I give my thoughts new fire to rise
To tender whispers of honesty from lips
I trust in curves I cannot see
With my eyes

One rare pleasure comes in as never before
Driven beyond my pulses beat
Borrowing beauty from inviting sighs
For my own tribute of solitude

I would wait on the sands of time for release
From this place my thoughts linger
Surrender up this poet's peace eternally
If my heart surrendered to whispers
Of tender honesty

Features of A Soul's Desire - Feb. 18, 2011

Features of a Soul's Desire

From every realm, warmth has laid its hands upon hours
That have felt the caress of a moonless night
Over distant hills and places where darkness surrounds
The features of a soul's desire to be loved only
For what lies inside

In times of thunder and lightning, there is still ecstasy
Hidden in the love that lies unceasing
Within the thoughts of sweetness warmth embraces
Interwoven in the features of a soul's desire
To keep breathing

Soon the wheel of fate will spin into a new morning
Until you no longer remember yesterday
Then warmth will steal in with fingertips that play
Along the features of your soul's desire
To love anyway

Carrying Your Smile - Feb. 17, 2011

With memories of great beauty, you sleep like an angel
Your wings resting with a confident air
While you sail on a ship looking for blessings
Setting fire to the bridges that cross
All your cares

You play in traces of clouds where you see your reflection
Revealed in the proud winds of your dreams
Watching time fade and travel to far away places
Where beauty rests in your imagination
To be redeemed

Standing by you now, watching you peacefully sleep
I can take refuge from my own cares
As I watch, all my blessings sail in on a ship
Carrying the smile on your face
I see there

Seconds Encircle the Night - Feb. 15, 2011

Seconds Encircle the Night

I have seen seconds encircle the night, one at a time
So often within the twinkle of an eye
Waking me to wander from the deepest slumber
Into places where my spirit seeks
The moon on high

Seconds lay waiting like butterflies of innocence
Passing silently without any regret
Until a stroke of midnight rings in so boldly
What is nothing becomes that
You cannot forget

I close my eyes on sleepless nights; listen to the sky
Laughing and smiling as if it understands
Why seconds encircle the night, one at a time
Then appear so innocent while I lie here
Under their command

Passing seconds can change into minutes, then hours
While you wait within the twinkle of an eye
To wake up and wander from the deepest slumber
Into those places your spirit seeks
To see on high

Honey on My Lips - February 14, 2011

Honey on My Lips

Carry me into the dream you had last night
Where we were as strong as trees
Fill my imagination with little jars of honey
We charmed from the hives
Of bees

Stand up in the sea that holds all wisdom
Commit my face to memory
Sail with me until we are of one mind
Across the lines where you start
I'll be

You will become the man I will never forget
The seed in my heart that grows
We will set fire to the wind and waters
Until eternity separates our lips
In woe

Promise me if we wake from your dream
I will hear your voice in my ear
Your name will leave the taste of honey
On the lips of my imagination
My Dear

Remember - February 13, 2011


Touch my heart in the shadows of the night
Let silence reign in your seduction
Call to my eyes until I can remember
Words of love you once spoke
Dear to me

Let there be no shame in what we see here
In this warmth you bring to me
Call to my eyes that I am not alone
Words of love you once spoke
So willingly

I am standing still with the print of your heart
Here listening to the beat of my own
Call to my eyes the words of love known
So that I can remember
My way home

I Need Not Speak - February 12, 2011

I Need Not Speak

I can hear you speak, even in your silence
Blending forever into the way I feel
Until all my thoughts burn into eternity
Within a flickering picture I hold
That dazzles my senses
And my heart steals

I will tell you where the radiance shines
To make all the clouds disappear
When I feel the warmth of tomorrow's dawn
Tie a string of silk around my heart
Because I know you can see
Me standing here

I need not speak as you can see me tremble
At every turn your silence takes
I will tell you where the radiance shines
When I once again see the hope
That dazzles my senses
And my day makes

Fragile - February 08, 2011

Painting by Viola Purdy


Fragile strands of secret thoughts play in the twilight
While eternity dances a breath away
Morning is sleeping under a quilt of stars
Waiting for a burst of sunlight
To smile her way

A hummingbird rises to seek dew from flowers
Shedding tears of joy as he finds
Drops of heaven on the petals of a rose
Within the reach of his wings
Purely divine

Our kindred souls are carried away in delight
Enchanted by the sights we see
We both carry our own secret thoughts
To play and dance in the sunlight
Fragile but free

Soft Words Weep in Stillness - Feb. 07, 2011

Soft Words Weep in Stillness

The early morning listens to soft words that weep in stillness
Echoing from the treetops of their existence
While distant mountains breathe an air of sadness
Into the verses that now arise
From my soul

In places where the sunrise accepts forever's gentle fade
Stand the tears upon a raindrop's face
Falling a thousand times to be lost in the shadows
Where they play among the pages
Of my day

But when the scent of a special grace, smiles into my depths
Sweet spirals of my existence break through
I find I am breathing out an air of precious gladness
Into the verses of soft words
That ensue

Yesterday I Wandered - Feb. 06, 2011

Yesterday I Wandered

Yesterday I wandered into the bliss of love's fountain
Held by strong arms I called home
A rambling traveler consumed by a passion
To listen to the sweet whispers
Of the bubbling foam

Timelessly I had always existed in a precious solitude
Where I found pleasure in my own dance
Until I wandered into the bliss of love's fountain
To kiss the warmest lips
Of circumstance

I must confess, the waters rushed round my heart
As I touched the cheek of sweet hours
My rambling feet stood still in complete joy
Desiring to be molded like soft clay
Within love's power

My flesh was warmed by sweet whispers of passion
Arms that held my heart in their hands
This rambling traveler quickly forgot who she was
When the waters of love's own fountain
Rushed in to my dance

Moon That Swims - February 01, 2011

Moon That Swims

My eyes are closed but are burning still
Like the moon on your lake
Inviting desire to hear words of love
On the soft air you breathe
In the love we make

I drown my thoughts each night in dreams
While the moon beams bright
Beckoning to the cold, I feel inside
To swim within your lake
So warm and right

I think I have glimpsed love, in its purest form
Flowing in you, so endless and complete
My eyes are closed yet burning still
I am the moon that swims
On your lake
