Happy Birthday

Madhu it's your day
A poet who answers all
Deeply is she loved
Honey is her name
Unique in every way.

Happy birthday friend.

Cicadas Song-2

cicadas sing their song of love
deep in august heat
now are still
those that wait
lie buried deep
waiting for the earth to warm

Voices in darkness
Old moon sets
I wander alone
Conjuring ghosts past
Everywhere they walk
Spirits follow me

Headstones In The Light

midnight silence rings out
headlight flash on headstones
nothing seems to move in the inky darkness
still lights flash and sparkle
visions of angels and regret, move
the dead packed one on top of another
famous and forgotten when the lights flash
they begin their slow dance
all together in the dark sparkling monuments
of the once fair and comely
caught in tiny ovals of memory
faces move to the rhythm of the night

flashing headlights reveal
etched stones of those that once lived
now dance in darkness

Red Clay

along the roadside,
they bury the dead
sweet Georgia red clay

Masks We Wear

the masks we wear
each day carrying them
hiding behind placid faces
unknown, untouched they cling
growing heavy as we walk the years
we are what they seem
or are we something more
in private, behind drawn shades
it slips to the floor
revealing the monster that is me

Tea Parties

hideous form caught in time
indurated, it blinks while dreaming
of tea party's and lacy pink dresses

Broken Chair

life with out love and pain
is a three legged chair
hopelessly broken, worn
it can not endure humanity

Sun Clouds

on warm sun drenched days
lazy hours pass one by one
fragrant blooms keep time
where no time exists

eyes blink as in slow motion
the sleepy earth stretches and yawns
laying in a hammock, swaying with the breeze
idle thoughts, your mind drifts

trees gather around you whispering
sleep child sleep as leaf shadows dance
breathing in memories of summers past
a sigh rises from deep within your soul

eye lids grow heavy, dreams reach out
weaving clouds, trapping, caught in the past
where love lives yet again, love unearthed
drowsy, content with afternoon sun

drifting,drifting slowly crisp air meets body
once more cold returns to grip the heart
silence surrounds silence,darkening visions it pulls,
it eats away your woven conjures, deluding reality

only to awake deep in winters tides of snow
snow that covers the garden and clings to skin
pallid dry skin, cracking iced lips, parted in protest
all under pale gray skies turning dark

Heavenly Bliss

I see your pale form,dimly amid rumpled sheets
when I touch your fragrant body,jasmine engulfs me
your soft supple skin opens like a wild rose and I am lost

watching the sun dapple silky patterns across your perfection
as I breath you, longing and hunger shapes my body
the need is over powering, complete

come to me that I may become one with you
and pass through the golden gate
where heavenly bliss abounds

Time Of Rain

chaos rules my heart
she left in the time of rain
left all that was her
all that I loved and hoped for
never to return,rain falls

Hold My Hand

come along with me my love
we'll walk the hills and valleys of our youth
weaving daisy chains with wild roses
a crown for you and one for me

oh what dreams we'll dream
walking barefoot across the old stream
hand in hand as we have always been
side by side, we will face what comes our way

so come along with me my love
and we shall dream such dreams
give me your hand my dear
the best is yet to be
come along grow old with me

Behind Your Eyes

look, look deep into your eyes
behind the color blue
______rimed with darkness
a nebula world, one few know
few care, few will ever see

in twilight, your eyes open
letting in the nights shadows
_______shadows that fill you
shadows that complete you
weaving webs of deceit and fear

beware the dimly lit paths
aglow around you, drawing, pulling
_______like spirit lights on the moors
we will suck you dry and snatch your soul
no second chance, no escape

extreme sadness
____heart empties
into river of tears
as your face fades
nothing, nothing left,nothing
no you ,no us
_____alone with
just shadows of where you once were

Deja Vu.....

old creaking joints
skin drawn tight
across skinny bones

lips once soft, smooth
pulled slightly apart
reveal yellowed teeth

hideous form caught in time
indurated, it blinks while dreaming
of tea party's and lacy pink dresses

feeble, mind dull, it stops and grins again
my face, it's face slid from it's once firm place
a face that shadows me

useless, feeble, slow when once I know
yes, once I know I ran deer footed
and laughed, laughed out loud

when once I wore those lacy pink dresses
and danced the night away
trailing soft summer flowers
