Seasons of Sorrow

December 11, 2008 § Leave a comment


There was a time for us to laugh and cry.
How can I get by winter to see July?

 

There was a time when our garden grew.
How will I plant seeds without us two?

 

There was a time when the ocean was warm.
How do I swim without security in a storm?

 

There is a time when the leaves fall:
And a time for your soul to leave it all…

Loving You?

December 11, 2008 § Leave a comment


So sorry for what I said-
a desert growing in my head.
How do I tell you so,
punching high and low?

 

Stop the pain inside.
Your touch is where I abide.

 

Open a world to emotion:
A stormy past scatters in my ocean.
I drown in taking another chance.
Surf upon these waters and dance.

 

Look into my eyes and what do you see?
Blinded by the light in me.

 

No more laughter, in the pouring rain…
How do you explain
the thief in the night who stole my days,
and misguided my ways?

 

Always told what to do…
I have finally escaped the face of you.

Strangers in Love

December 11, 2008 § Leave a comment

 


Your eyes

 

sparkle in the dark

 

as I say my goodbyes.

 

Mark

 

my name across

 

your heart.

 

Love is not a loss.

 

A river flows apart

 

our souls.

 

We can never drown.

 

Devotion strolls

 

to another town.

Fate

December 11, 2008 § Leave a comment

 

He controls the tide;
runs at my side.

 

No where to hide,
I jump on the ride.

 

I long to fly low.
Where will I go?

 

Back to each other,
my lover or another…

Fall

December 11, 2008 § Leave a comment

 

The wind screams.

The leaves dance

in the cold streams,

in ritual romance.

The sun seldom shines.

The last animal dines.

Behind a cloud

Fall takes off the shroud;

I feel the great chill coming.

The birds stopped humming.

Birch Tree

December 16, 2007 § 8 Comments


Have you seen her, high on a hill, linking earth and sky?
Her blossoms unveil the blessings of life.


Give gifts of peace and freedom to a heart’s cry.
Have you seen her, high on a hill, linking earth and sky?


The most ladylike of all trees, I can most identify.
Her fertility and reliability flow deep in the afterlife.


Have you seen her, high on a hill, linking earth and sky?
Her blossoms unveil the blessings of life.

The Jacarda Blues

December 13, 2007 § Leave a comment

The Jacaranda Tree lives within me;
A fantasy, I become a planted city.
You say “How pretty, the colors of thee.”
I agree it’s a mystery, the only hue I see.
Oh, how I wish to be free; what I desire to be…
Below me, there is a man on bended knee;
I don’t know for sure if he holds the key-


To turn the wooden lock of my purple tree…
Like the dark days of the deep-sea,
Never to blink, eyes frozen in eternity…
And with a long, strong stare of you-and-me
My trumpets fall, hearts-free
Never to finish my biography
And speak of The Smile of Rosemarie


So, who wears my rounded crown, he or she?
Can there be three…carefree
Days to last…hey come look-see
I’m now low-key and a humble-bee
Flies fortunately with a sip of my honey…
And with the love for money; hey, I’m no dummy-
We all want something yummy in our tummy.


But, isn’t it funny…
How the blues blossom when it’s sunny?

Tic-Tac-Toe

December 12, 2007 § Leave a comment


Here in the air of X and O,
I pass right through yes and no.
My soul travels alone
on a path into the unknown.
Sing to me a song
of lovers whose destiny is one.
Wanting, waiting lifelong…
My song is over and just begun.

Child of the Universe

December 12, 2007 § Leave a comment


Mankind plays in the forest
on seesaws.
Starving children
run with ripped wings.
Repeated words they hear
find openings…
Broken dreams
fall deep in my head.
Let them go,
gifts to the dead.
Have childlike faith.
The Master plan is unclear:
travel in the world
without reservation or fear.

Forever Yours

December 12, 2007 § Leave a comment


There is a love song
that Heaven wrote.
I couldn’t even recite
the words or note for note.
Only could I tell you
with my eyes-
the way you move me,
like the song of no goodbyes…

Puzzle Inside the Mind

Christ from Dead Sea Scrolls

“Hold fast, my beautiful one.

Sail across the barriers of time.

Reach deep within my waters

and find me in the center-

My existence.

Do you hear the most beautiful rhyme

singing in heaven?

Come closer, little one;

Can you see me?

Can you forsee-

your

life?”

Weekend Washaway

December 12, 2007 § Leave a comment


What are you talking about? f words
The girl next door was enjoying her stay.
Lighting strikes, states ask in silver birds.
Another number wakes up in battle’s bay.
This is the worst things will get
No such thing; a girl so bright…
Blue stars, her eyes you’ve met-
While in fantasy, fiftieth flight…
Families can’t act out in court.
Without happy moments…peasants-
Jury was absent, enemies’ barcode the fort.
Safety came and went, letters sent
..Filters, stripes on your forehead
Dreaming this entire stage
…we read in red-
The struggles in the cage of rage;
Time grows, knows, eventually goes…
Justice will be served one day.
A quiet beauty – knows-
Mourns last night, Monday…

Wells of Salvation

December 12, 2007 § Leave a comment


A place in my heart is kept from the reality of the world.
Never troubled or afraid, love is hurled-
Into the air of loneliness, circles of eight:
Eternity floats ashore and makes a date.
A beautiful sight – angels in flight,
…way above acts in the night
Look around you;
Look for a clue
In creation-
Salvation.

Homeland

December 12, 2007 § 3 Comments


Life is clockworks…
time travels in mysterious ways:
the hours are minutes-
and months, days.
In this world
miles from home
with no one to watch over me…
I am not alone.
If I could wish
on every tree I see…
I wish my wings were clipped
and for a moment, not set free;
then, I could make my footprints
in wet sand…
and able to call
this place … home, my land.

The Touch of Love

December 12, 2007 § Leave a comment

Sometimes,
a person’s touch
tells so much.
As to hold,
to speak
inside,
and soon,
all fear
subsides.

Her Face

December 12, 2007 § Leave a comment

She awoke in silence.
All she could hear
was the sound of his heart
beat a night before last.
Everyday to her
is a dream.
Everyday is he.
He is everywhere
she goes…
even to the darkest corners,
he sits…
waiting, watching, wondering
where she goes;
Day after day,
night after night,
the chase is ending.
Cupid is bleeding.
Hearts are fading-
under Love’s arrow,
a dark flame in the psyche.

Blue Morning

Waiting for the sun…while dreaming of the one.


Paradise will wait


your visit with fate.


Opening the mind,


take a key to find


a heart beating with your heart—”for richer or poorer”.

My City of Love :: 1

December 2, 2007 § 2 Comments

I have lots of love deep in my heart
But I can’t keep the fire burning without you sweetheart
Come to me here in my city of love
And we’ll sing songs in the subway unheard of


A city is just a city if you just dream it
A guitar doesn’t sound afar unless you play the strings
Life is lonely if you just try to quit
And love alone is nothing but a hole with wings


I would do anything for you to feel this…
The songs inside my heart moving for your one kiss
So here I am in my city of dreams
Waiting for your lips to touch mine, so it seems…


A city is just a city if you just dream it
A guitar doesn’t sound afar unless you play the strings
Life is lonely if you just try to quit
And love alone is nothing but a hole with wings


I’m wishing upon a star in this city of no stars
But wishes can’t come true if you don’t see a star so far
So be mine tonight under the moon which moves us above
Be mine tonight and be my city of love


I’m wishing upon a star in this city of no stars
But wishes can’t come true if you don’t see a star so far
So be mine tonight under the moon which moves us above
Be mine tonight and be my city of love
Be mine tonight and be my city, love…

I have lots of love deep in my heart
But I can’t keep the fire burning without you sweetheart
Come to me here in my city of love
And we’ll sing songs in the subway unheard of


A city is just a city if you just dream it
A piano doesn’t sound afar unless you play the keys
Life is lonely if you just try to quit
And love alone is nothing but a tease


I would give anything for you to feel this…
The songs inside my heart moving for your one kiss
So here I am in my city of dreams
Waiting for your lips to touch mine, so it seems…


A city is just a city if you just dream it
A piano doesn’t sound afar unless you play the keys
Life is lonely if you just try to quit
And love alone is nothing but a tease


I’m wishing upon a star in this city of no stars
But wishes can’t come true if you don’t see a star so far
So be mine tonight under the moon which moves us above
Be mine tonight and be my city of love


I’m wishing upon a star in this city of no stars
But wishes can’t come true if you don’t see a star so far
So be mine tonight under the moon which moves us above
Be mine tonight and be my city of love
Be mine tonight and be my city, love
