“LAST LONELY DANCE”

35114693_211005999710738_1904264370196578304_n

The waves roar.

Spill their embracing foam upon the sandy beach.

High above a cliff, I stand!

The salty breeze blows my hair,

A single tear rolls down my cheek;

Then hangs upon my chin!

A tear for my tear.

Below the waves roar.

Spill their embracing foam-

Upon the sandy beach.

I take one step and join the wave;

For my last lonely dance!! …

“EVERY LOST SOUL”

jesus-on-cross

Upon the cross lies a lonely Man.

His arms stretched out for his Father’s hands!

Upon the cross lies men od shame.

To the Father they cry.

“I am the one to blame!”

Beneath the cross lie a world of guilt;

For all that they have done.

Beneath the cross lies a world in tears;

For men has taken the life of GOD’S SON.

Within the cross lies blood of the man,

Who died for every lost soul.

Within the cross lies forgiveness,

That will make our lives whole again!! …

“LIFE BLOOD EBBING”

screenshot_20180121-0621341

Shocked, he rocked the world. Rocked, his eyes locked with

Hers. They fell, spinning, whirling dervishes as one. Each is in

Each other’s arms drinking in each other’s charms!

Deeper down, deeper down! round and round. Colors

Swimming.

Head spinning, clouded thoughts.

The truth masking lies, shielding eyes! Time ticking,

Tricking, running out on party guests…

Reality loses the edge on fantasy, forgets its head, Lies

Almost dead, life blood ebbing. Calling on forgotten memories,

Filling in the gaps! Lies came easily, the end result teases,

Pleases, then leaves!! …

“BOUNDLESS BEAUTY”

35114693_211005999710738_1904264370196578304_n

A circulation of vitality fills my

heart and soul

as I inhale the sweet, salty air

emanating from the sea…

My eyes mirror the path of white foam

like a devoted brother.

Yes, nature can be loved with a

human heart…

To sit and worship the majestic ocean

is pre-eminently the

very same as loving another human being!

My exquisite sensitivity…

Overflows as the scent of the sea perfumes

the air and fills

my heart with the untarnished joy of love…

I cradle your soul in my arms while the

sudden coldness of water

momentarily numbs my feet. Your beauty

lights up my life!! …

“AWE…”

20414292_1283416561780352_1523572292669444783_o

The dark cloud rolled over the mountains,

From the west;

Gloating in their nimble power!

The lightening! The devils danced their searing,

Maddened best;

Reveling in their gloried hour!

The rain tore from its cloudy cage-

To join the wind in its frantic rage,

As earth, slyly, its summer thirst assuaged.

Fiercely the storm swept across the plain,

Bold and wild and raw;

As I completely drenched with rain;

And stood watching in awe!! …

“FINDING THE LIGHT”

35151629_1583383638450308_2839915423602835456_n

The falling rain,

Echoes my pain.

The drops that are pounding;

And the thunder sounding,

Collide in my mind.

With the heartache, I find,

As the lightenings strike,

Bitter memories spike.

Desperately I pray,

For the pain go away.

But the clouds seem to mock me.

And the darkness surrounds me,

In dismal loneliness.

Until, for mercy, I scream the emptiness…

Then in a sudden flood of compassion,

The sun releases all inner ration.

Tenderly its rays embrace my face;

Bringing warmth to my harsh case;

And giving me the strength again,

For a new day to begin!! …

“SHADES OF DOUBT”

32748900_1556816844440321_6168476019570245632_n

Thoughts swirl through my mind so fast.

Brain works overtime and over reacts.

Light in the dark shades of doubt rest on my mind.

Please dear God let my heart be blind.

Thorns move into strangle our love!

Seems love wasn’t thought enough of.

Attention is needed to keep love on track.

Left not mended, there is no way to go back!! …

“CAN YOU HEAR THE SILENCE??”

shhh1

Each night the silence speak to me.

Its “VOID” is loud and clear.

The inner-most thoughts of the day whispers in my ear.

Tis only in the silence can you hear your inner-soul.

The clarity magnificent for you are in control.

I listen to my goals, my plans for the day.

I create what ought to be.

I create “What ever come what may!”

Tis a time for your talents to surface and come forth.

Tis a time for you to study your values and your worth.

Listen to the silence for tis you that has the floor.

No one to interrupt, no one to close the door!! …

“THE WEB”

screenshot_20180322-171209

When she set up to weave a tapestry,

everyone who knew her said:

“It would be a masterpiece!”

And yet again: “Her adept hands exuding poetry,

“Her unparalleled treasure of silken thread,

“it has to be a masterpiece!”

She reached into her treasure box,

full of joy, vivid colored threads.

Yet, bleak threads, she picked again and again.

She wove an intricate web;

more intricate than a spider could never dreamed.

Did she know that she would be the devour-

and the prey in the web?

Did she know that her loved-ones-

would be caught at the edges of the web?

The loved-ones for whom-

she would have woven nothing but the rainbows!

Did she know that she was weaving a web? …
