Covert Stars

covert stars shine bright
in the deep blackness of space
lighting up our sky's

Past And Future

the future is nothing
it's the past that lives for me
as real as today it lives

the past when I was young
and my little boys were so sweet
with big blue eyes

and rosy cheeks
my angels my own
my three little boys

I remember trips to the cabin
and swims in the lake
cooking out and roasting marshmallows

hide and seek in the woods
lots of laughter and giggles
oh times were sweet
when they were young

now they are men on their own
and need me not
I miss those days

I miss the past
the kisses and hugs and long curly hair
all gone to grownup things

the past is forgotten
but lives

in my memory alone
forgotten by all but me

The Space Between Us

the space between us
can it grow any larger
days past so quickly

I long for your arms
to hold me close at night time
oh my love please please

She Left

As my mother lie dying. I knew it was an ending. I knew that my sister
and I would now be the next generation. As I looked deep into the sweet brown eyes
I had always known, I said my goodbyes. Mommy I love you. I have always love you.
Taking her hand in mine I tried to reach her. But her eyes were focused elsewhere.
She knew me not. Perhaps she saw her savior. Perhaps she saw my father. I climbed into bed with her. Holding her tight. Telling her it was all right to go. And she left me.

gone to her reward
carried on sweet angels wings
to sit with her Lord

Darkness Of Winter

of winter time
snow falls covering all
deep sparkling  snow blinds the eyes 
all dark

Necter Of Life

harvest time has come
sweet nectar the ripe fruit bears
licking fingers all

children suck fruit dry
little gluttons search for more
oh so sweet they are

The Deep

deep lies the ice cover
sold beneath the river
black ice thick and dark

all lies still and quiet
the winter has settled in
fish dream far below

buried deep within
winters sold grip
spring a dream away away

Echoing Frost

Gathering oak the color of drab winter
with summers soft membranes clinging still.
Limb by limb I stack the wood breathing hard.
Lady shakes her head snorting her displeasure
of the snow now falling around us. I work on
while clouds puff from my body in the misty cold.
I hear my voice echoing tinged with frost stay girl stay.

winters frost has come
wrapping us in biting cold
my voice echos ice

When I Was Young

when I was younger
so much younger then today
never needed love

not in any way
through the many years to come
I danced all alone

love was just for fun
now those days have come and gone
and I long for you

long for your sweet touch
need to whisper words of love
giving you my heart

A Fools Paradise

what fools men are
ever searching for
paradise in a women

sweet words to woo her
flowers to place at her feet
whispers of love forever

a man ever looks for
that which does not exist
a fools paradise where there is none

A Paradise Lost

She walks the worn path one she had taken so many times.
Deeper into the forest seeking respite for the weary.
Here once a place of peace and eternity,now a paradise lost.
Still she searches for her kind. Here in nevermore where palaces
and gardens once bloomed. They are gone to the west leaving
nothing behind.Tears cascade down from her beautiful eyes as
sorrow fills her heart.Now she wanders alone amid a forest of graves.
She is lost forever for they are never to return.

a paradise lost
to time and sorrow forever
she walks alone now

Light In the Forest

in the dark of night
waiting for the suns first light
joys fills the forest

Winters Waves

laying on a wind swept beach
I feel the cold breezes cover my body
and hear the roar of winter waves

summers sand but a memory
a memory of you
gone with the tides

winter whips around my body
leaving only it's cruel touch
it's cruel and lonely touch


my obsession lies
deep within your blue gray eyes
look at me my love

Rich Red Poppies

River of poppies stream forth
red realm of beauty from field
to gate and beyond.
So lovely so alive free in the
wild of life. Free in the matters
of things. Free for all to see
and hold close forever.
Rich red red poppies lie close
to my heart. For they in death
are a part of you and me.

Lavender Twilight

lavender twilight
birds seeking their rest on high
musically sighing

soft murmurs so sweet
fill the evenings late hours
quiet now at rest

heads tucked under wings
little souls now full of peace
waiting for the dawn

Birds In The Sky

birds sway back and forth
above the blue ocean
crying out a sad call

waves respond to their rhythm
back and forth the foam rises
all is lost in wind and rain
mystical forms ride the tides

Deep within my heart

deep within my heart
I carry your image
this is for eternity

it shall be forever
nothing will change
nothing will burst
for you are mine forever

Where are you?

where are you my love
in the winters darkness
so cold so bleak

my heart is frozen
I wait for spring to release me
and want for your touch to wake me

Life's End

what mystery lies
when life's end
draws ever near
and shade covers all

Friends and readers........

Since I broke my shoulder and elbow I have not been up to writing. I will now try to catch up on all prompts.

my heart grows cold now
that you have left me behind
what is there to feel?
your love fills my heart
I can never let you go
abide with me love
autumn leaves turn orange
clinging desperately to trees
sighing in the wind

The Best Of Me

I think of him and wonder what went wrong.
We were bound together in love and happiness.
Two like souls intertwined forever.
I gave him the best of me and yet
it would seem it was not enough.
How do I live without him?
Simply walking on the paths we took
is too much for me.
I miss his arms around me.
I miss his kisses sweet.
I miss his body next to me
and I miss his tender love.
Time has not changed how I feel.
Time has not healed my heart.
He took the best of me and
left nothing to live on.
He took the best of me and left me to cry

Autumn Silence

autumn colors bright
hues of burnt orange and yellow
crisp cool breezes flow

silence fills the air
alone I sit and listen
as leaves sigh and fall

Misty Blue Ocean

Smiling Sally
setting on the empty beach
I see the blueness of your eyes
deep within the ocean
I hear your soft voice as the waves rush in

If only you were with me
If only I could bring you back to me
too much time has past since we parted
too much pain has molded me

those blue eyes flash for someone else now
those blue eyes long for another
I have but shades of blue memories
fading as I walk alone beside a misty blue ocean

You Have Forgotten

I look into your eyes
and see eternity
my heart bleeds for you
but you care not
shall I give you my soul
my very being.
my life's plan
or should I forget you
and all your beautiful words
that thrill my being
let me go, let me love another
I cling to you as if we were lovers
yet I know you have forgotten me.
I look into your eyes
I look into your eyes

No Matter How It Hurts

the show must go on
no matter how it hurts
losing one you loved

all remains the same
time has a way of turning
all tears into smiles

as we ever long
for that one moment in time
when love comes along

Loves Desire

As the stars fill the heavens above
His heart seeks what he cannot have___
The perfection of her soft skin, her face

The love that lies in her eyes, yet not for him
Beauty has molded time, radiant in starlight she shines
Pale as the virgin moon she walks through the night streets

"Surely what secrets she endures, her pure glorious features
Come, from the constellations, a gift.... not meant for mankind"

Auras In Blue

Smiling Sally

wispy sky's afloat
shimmering auras in blue
summers last perfume

bluebells gone away
as color fades in the mist
leaving orange red tints

blue trees frost time comes
sends shivers up tree branches
summers blue now gone

Bath Time Dreaming

she soaked in her tub
softly sponging her body
daydreaming of him

lying back she smiled
ardent were his kisses sweet
lips smooth and giving

tonight she would know
as stars raced across the sky
if his love was true

Paper Tears

paper tears rain down
absorption remains sorrow
letting go is hard

paper tears not real
only feed a rich anger
when love could bind all

give me the freedom
to search your inner being
and feel your soft heart

love raptures us all
willing or not we grow
into loves true gift

Ghostly Laundry

the laughing laundry
as bed sheet ghosts run and twirl
dad sips his cold beer
children run around an round
ghosts chasing flowers edges

Nights Love ( a repost)

rising from her bed
she washes nights love away
dripping on the floor

This is a poor copy of a poet well known among us. His poetry is outstanding. I love to read his work.

Outside In

outside in falling
in love with love so divine
inside out my heart
falls apart piece after piece
never learning from the past

Hues Of Gold

vibrant hues of gold
tints of red orange plum and green
screen now empty trees

fairies hopes and dreams
woven mists move to drum beats
falls dancers have come

they twirl round and round
singing their sweet melodies
till dawn fills the sky

The Poetry Weaver

Like a spider's prey all caught up in words of love both cool and playful,he drew me
to him.Poetry my downfall. Woven tightly around me. Warp and weft he wove
his lovely words of desire and bound fast my heart. Long before I knew the sound of
his voice, the look in his eyes,the taste of his lips he had me trapped in love and need.There was no escape from this shimmering web. He fed on my on my flesh and my soul.

a spiders web holds
through nights of love and longing
and with the dawn breaks

left behind torn rent
drained of all my innocence
clutching wispy words

empty tenderness
now meant for some other love 
bloodless left to cry

beware those sweet words
beware those dark shining eyes
beware tides that bind.

The River Swift

my swollen heart bleeds
a river overflowing
it's raw jagged banks

tears pool here and there
as winters frozen snow melts
pale blood left behind

gone his loving care
gone his quiet gentle smile
gone his words of love

empty is my heart
cold my skin has now become
numb my world grows dim

my floating body
caught in a whirlpool of ice
soon sinks from all time


seems impossible
that time swift as an arrow
has left me alone

The Clowns

painted white faces
black circles under glass eyes
friendly...they do not smile

they creep towards me
in somersaults spinning
to music only they can hear

I am trapped by their stares
daddy, daddy I whisper
tugging on his arm...he does not notice

slowly, nearer and nearer
I want to scream...
I want to run...

reaching with white gloved hands
now, I frozen with fear, jump up
the lights go dark and I drift away


love entwines our hearts
as our souls speak one to one
come my sweet love be mine

Oh My Love

oh my love, words we once spoke are forgotten
time, time so cruel so short and I can not remember
your touch your voice our loving together
would but time give back what it has taken
could I but know and taste our sweet murmurings once more
if you could but forgive my pride and take away my pain
I long to kiss your lips,feel your heat as we lie side by side again

Careless Lover

you with your sly way have taken my heart
unthinking uncaring that now I am empty
my love pushed aside no longer needed
I will move on now parting in pain
oh careless lover you will forget me soon enough

Gemini's Incubus

Green shoots everywhere
Earth yawns and stirs
Meadows full with daffodil's
In out of cement gardens
Nature will push pavement aside
Incubus grows unnoticed in shadows

The Laguage Of Love

language, the language of love
husky smoking and complete

language links need and desire
as our bodies lie intertwined
captured in this unending place of pleasure

Words Are All WE Have

words are all we have my love
they link our souls
together they bind
our hearts and minds
never to be apart
when you whisper
so soft and sweet
words of need
I am yours forever

The Sea

Mist rises from the ocean's depth.
The sea, green gray, dark and deep.
Each wave rushes towards me, then
like a forlorn lover recedes again.

Sprites, sirens of the night call to me
as they dance upon the white foam.
Glittering in the darkness.
And I watch the enigmatic moonlight
change the tiny beings' colors, sliver gold.
As they like dancers in the dead of night,
leap from wave to wave.

Crystalline laughter echoes softly. Almost
lost in the surf's sound. My feet, naked, buried
deep within the sand that pervades my flesh with
And I wait.
Wait for the tide to once more slip slowly
back into the murky sea.
I wait and dawn breaks to warm my cold still body


when I look into your dark brown eyes
it takes my breath away....
I drown in those eyes

each time I look at you....
you know just how to make me tremble

when you whisper soft and low
your kiss on my neck....

my body opens like a primrose
ah, I breath you in....

my body is an open book....
a book you have learned to read so well

as you turn the pages, every sigh is there
every moan is there....

you play your game with me....
until I can wait no longer

His Shuffling Walk

his shape was bent and hollow
eyes softly glowing red
from whence he came
no one knew only fear kept his company
his skin blotched and worn
frightening more then a few early
morning libertine home from the pub
what creature was this shuffling with in the shadows
