A Shift In Time.......

Each Thursday she came to the graveyard. The massive gates stood ajar.
last nights rain had brought down all the leaves.
putting aside her buttercups that he loved so much
she busied herself with cleaning broken twigs and leaves.
from time to time she would stop and softly touch the
letters she loved so much and whisper his name once or twice.
soft tears would well in her eyes when she thought of all the
time that had passed and how solid was the ground that separated them.

Funny how easily the hurt and longing was still so fresh.
suddenly the gloomy day broke and she was surround in a rainbow
of lovely colors. She had to squint to see what she was doing
so bright and alive were the colors. Her buttercups forgotten,
all she could see was a dim figure haloed in swirling beauty.
then a pale thin hand reached out for hers. A soft voice, his voice
called out her name. Emily oh Emily my love, come my love come we have but a flicker of time.
As she stood before him and saw the shift in time. He whispered do not be afraid. She slipped into his waiting arms, buttercups forgotten.
Come lie down beside me that we might share eternity as one.
Side by side they lay together. His soft words filled her mind.
Do not be afraid my dear for this was meant to be. The shift closed and they were gone.

Elusive Dreams

waking from deep sleep
my eyes heavy with star dust
I wish not to wake
for in dreams my love is true
elusive though he may be

dream on my angel
fill this empty heart with music
cool me with your kiss
as we walk the sands of time
I would not leave you this night

so dream on my sweet
dream on my one true lover
leave me not to wake
let us walk this bright moonlight
till gleaming stars set at dawn

Why Continue.....

why continue?
why this insanity?
a life of sorts
with death a rite of passage

Red Roses By Her Cheek

Red Roses By Her Cheek

pale white hands sweetly folded
red roses by her cheek
love has gone with summers end

rain against the window panes
weeps, weeps for such perfection
oh, please let her not lie in the dark

Dear friends and readers. When I changed my web page I lost my blog list. It will take some time to reinstate all of the blogs I love.

Demons Of Darkness

a fear lies within me
so deep and dark that none can see
it comes to me in dreams
from which I cannot escape
conquer it I must

in the hours before first light
where it roams, lurking just out of reach
these demons of darkness would my soul have
as ever so softly they call to me

Here we go again. It would seem I screwed things up once again. I am now Cassiopeia Rises. This will be the new name for my site. Something strange was going on at my other site. I have now changed it's URL.

love, Melanie

Misty Morning Glory

misty morning glory blossoms
pale purple...blues...pinks
a lifetime in one day
sleep they must in evenings cool
at dawn all fades away

Heaven's Jewels

lady moon shines bright
cloudless sky's where stars compete
jewels for heaven's hand
each gem a lovers delight
red morning sets all ablaze
