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.
