When I hear this sound that awakens me, intimidating its way into my cloistered night, I write…

“My Lord?” She asks. He speaks: “I cherish you,

“Dear Queen. No other man has ever known-

“A wife so noble, steadfast, brave, and true!”

And yet I played a part, was not alone,

But strove an equal there with Gods and man,

In actions bards will sing through all the years.

I need to share such special hours again.

The great queen speaks, her cheeks are wet with years;

And “What of me?” I prayed that Zeus might spare-

Your life, might save our island kingdom too.

And so he has. Would you once more then dare-

To test his patience ? Is not rest your due?

“My love”, He says,” ’tis Zeus who bides me,

“To sail into the sunrise, past those straits-

“That guard our little Island sea, and know-

“I have no choice, we answer to our fates.”

But, Gods deal fairly when they don’t destroy;

My magnanimous eye

Dip into the subconscious realm

Of terrified impurity

Finding there

A dash of humility

Wasted on your smile.

Sea-sailing for sanguine verisimilitude

When weathering storms arise

To take my breath and

Scatter emotions like marbles

clattering on the glass-top table of my heart

As you laugh.

As cuckoo sounds

Alarmed to find the time

For alacritous honesty

Have gone.

I woke to find

No string attached

And walk on, humbled

For playing your game!! …

What willow’s sinewy branch does cast,

A shadow, O, so dark and thick?

Across my spirit, across my soul,

It’s for my heart the bell does toll.

What segments of sun’s fiery light-

Do trickle ‘tween these burly boughs?

Beneath this tree I sit alone;

And for this moment call it home!

For ’till the hour my arms do drape-

About the shoulders of my love.

I’ll hearken as the drake;

Call his mate at evening’s break;

And reflect upon these waters still!! …

Suddenly blood races through my vain.

Quivering, your heart cries like rain.

How can a heart withstand

The horror by this treacherous hand?

Into your heart, let calmness creep.

Tell your senses don’t be afraid or weep.

Let’s soothingly the stillness slowly unfold!

Be tranquil, silent, let’s not your soul be cold…

When did you see the rough sea?

When did the storm rage, waves moved savagery?

When did you submerge  yourself in the water’s deep;

And a silent peace found you when you weep?

Conflict bring so much echo to heart.

Fear is big and tears you apart.

You grab silence and never are late.

Reason accepted by all, but senses accepted as fate!! …

A cool breeze! BABY BLUE bubbles in a bathtub!

Cherries, roses, RED our heart!

The sun in the sky, YELLOW daisies, bananas;

It is like melted chocolate BROWN in my mouth.

It is like roses blooming PINK, in the autumn.

It is like pumpkin ORANGE pie in the sky.

Smoke night, BLACK CATS, tarantula!! …

Between the long shadows of the day

Amongst the myriad tones

That change in blue array

Before it heralds the night

It reckons with the soft hour

The long blue twilight

made moveable still

By fortuitous dreamers

Upon their castellated hill

Striving to keep the time between

Day ending and ebon dark

A lengthening sunset scene

And warding off the lonely night

Bargaining for time

To gain the eventide of light!! …
