colors....coloursPage 11 of 36    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36)
Colors …colours
Two spellings of this word
With all of this
Nothing I’ve heard
But to all of them
And all words taken
They are all colours
Not to be mistaken
With any one
Taking on each shade
Words are many colours
Though eventually fade
Into the next
So everyone will know
How all of these words
Make up a rainbow

Desert side bar....but never this far
Posted: 1/15/2007 2:59:44 PM
I enter often to this place
To join with some friends
To get out of the race

Within here lies beauty
From messages sent
Back and forth
Through lines bent

Traveling optically in electric light
Moving through air waves
To much delight

To partake in verse
We travel so far
Through lines we converse
We arrive at this bar

Throbbing with enchantment
Of life’s little tales
Sometimes talking of heartache
And all that ails

But when I leave
This desert side bar
I’ve traveled so quickly
But never this far

In your heart

Little girl I'm not sure where to start
It was long ago that we had to part
A great deal has happened since then
Too much for a broken heart to mend

You ask where I have been for all these years
Why I left you with all these tears
I'm not sure of the answers you seek
But as time past I could not speak

It grew so long I could not return
Although all through time my heart to yearn
You ask me where I've been from the start
But the truth is I was in always your heart.

In your heart and you in mine.
Not a day goes by that I don't remind
That I keep you close
Where I miss you most

In my heart

I really am happy

thanks so much triple
you re birthed man you!
of course you do
know just where and when to start
from that deep place within
your heart

she needs you can't deny it
your daughter will always need
you yes when only you will do
her father that has answers
no other has
no matter that another man
has had his hand in raising your
beautiful star but he can only
do so much and go so far
you are quite something
possessing your knowledge
your gratefulness and thanks
to him wanting to show

promises made your word given
not to interfere perhaps integrity
of fate has now stepped right up
to the plate in a matter of
some sort of reason within the correct
season without any type of treason
she will love you just for you
even if she has questions
i'm sure you do too

her birthday now close at hand
the nearer it looms more your mind swoons
just remember dear keep things simple
even when they seem most complex

no need to put yourself
through any further tests
when the time comes as it will
your heart i promise you
will take over again and ya
know too this time it
cannot possibly in any way fail

nor will you seem to flail
for love will in its simple way
take over and guide you
that long awaited celebratory day
even i can't hardly wait!

fax, thank you for stopping by and for leaving lines herein, nice; please feel free to stop by any time you wanna

tangible faith and climbing a wall
Posted: 1/17/2007 6:37:28 PM
thank you hopeful one
sometimes it seems
we have lost something
when truly have not
for all we have to do
is remember and believe
in tangible faith

its a conscious decision
for me as my heart flutters
reminding me repeatedly
beautiful journey beckons
each of us all to but
first imagine
then revel in all
that's still spread ahead
jumping into future
starts with just one
slight timid step

making me believe
what we never knew
planting seedlings
dreaming of one
day ahead in time
longing for that one
safest place for
us finally to rest
our weary heads


wall 'round my heart

upon finding myself
once more in a corner
that familiar place
wishing i could reach out
caress n soothe your face
only merely a handful
tender possibilities left
me reeling yes feeling
yet more still inside
just crawling that wall
my soul gets to decide
my mind and body's fate

writhing tormenting
thinking of you
me so very
sighing at how
we can't just be
doing nothing
doing everything
just believing
this smile begins

so very kind of you to say so
thank you for stopping by autumn
here you are welcome anytime

i've been stuck lately too
words somehow failing me

just reading releases energy
in many hearts and on our minds

I walk through life and look for your face
Not knowing the lines or a familiar place
I’ve probably walked by you at the mall
Opened the door for you or turned when you call

Is your hair blonde or your brown eyes blue
Are you kind and tender I haven’t a clue
But I still wonder who you resemble
Rumbling my mind and making me tremble

So until we meet and get acquainted
I will walk this life with everything tainted
Sauntering this existence looking for your face
In everyone eyes, in every place

she's a beauty triple; thanks for stopping in with another and for the smiles this morning very appreciated

how do we lasso our mind's wanderings

perfect peppered sunny eggs
slid onto beautiful china plate
sheraton fine english flowers
colors of amazing hues
buttered toast and gatorade blue
sitting down to eat and read

morning mistake i made
with but the best of intention
news spewing in my background
another body found dead
chopped into many bits
then placed into a suitcase
dumped onto east side
this valley desert cold
after heinous act committed

how to reconcile this
on a new fresh crisp winter day
in my mind now unease
when i awoke today
to please myself and others
now instead i'll meditate
in the car onto work
this time with a cd and
sure not to listen to radio

if i try hard perhaps i can
push ugly hatred from my mind
return to center breathing
finding sense some meaning
going about my tasks so many
so much in these next three days
images of surfing lake superior
or the snow on malibu beaches
better focus for me it's true

besides what does it say
about me that i was able
to eat those eggs and too
keep them down even if
now i find myself still sighing

for mon ami
Posted: 1/18/2007 5:58:02 PM
a lady i know dear
left a few days ago
back to montreal
she flew but only just
today i received your mail
made me think
of many things

firstly you lady fair
deserve someone real
believe it until that
becomes your reality
if you believe nothing
else please

thinking about
your beautiful daughter
a songstress amazing
of dazzling beauty
all this and more
she is strong i know
like her mother
well you raised her
now she's all grown
intellect beauty mind
career life all her own
aren't you so very proud!
she is a very incredible
testament of your love
hopes and strength
given freely for so
many years even
through each and every
single tear to fall
from either's eyes i know
it's been so very worth
any and all waterfalls

but now i have to wonder
at why you allow yourself
as you described to me
to be played with
as a toy
by just a lonely little
shriveled up such a
mean spririted
kind of grown up
little boy
those are
the worst kind
you know

love isn't unkind dear
but yes
sometimes i think
it might be blind
but unrequited
well now
thats another thing
all together
is it not

i hope soon
you realize
your worth
as a woman
in this your
in this
your life

he isn't
worth your time
not even any bit of it
with his type of
controlling mind
its become his
way of life
and you
are better
don't you
honestly see

its not a game
he's playing
he's playing you
are you
liking this
truly really
are you?

if you take
your own sweet time
begin by
reaching inside
being honest
and true
to yourself
by pondering
don't you deserve
to get off his
roller coaster
of deceit
you define
and describe
so well
he's playing
with your mind

do you dare
to smile
and get to know
someone real inside

or is this
controlling man
simply a matter
of fascination
hindering you
from your own
self actualization
or depth of knowing
someone real
someone like you
but one who's not
afraid to feel

now i'm thinking
you're wondering
if you've became
if i recall correctly
well it's debatable
because if that
were the case
then perhaps
just for right now
you've given up your
real dreams
it seems
what are those
an oxymoron
no because
real dreams
are more
set in good
solid foundation
return of energy
freely given
not stalked
or taken nor
giving up
on everyone else
all for the sake
and perchance moment
of and by
his merest
and awareness
of you solely
on an IM screen?!
do you know
what i mean?!

now i don't know
about how
you might
or might not
have sought
other similar
kinds of relations
because you
say you want
no one else
you are ok
with this
his treatment
toward and for you
it is from him
ohh please

you say
you want
no one else
but just
thinking of him
i have to ask
what does it do for you
lumps in your throat
is that all you think
and feel you are worthy of
besides all those sad gulps?

i say a resounding NO
but you dear
you must believe
that first
you know
even if
by a small seed
deeply held
in your heart
i hope you don't
feel or think
i'm being cruel
because i'd like
to see better for you
for only then
maybe little by little
you will see and know
much much differently
for this
for you
i hope and pray

he ain't worth it darlin
but YOU are
worth so so much more
let firstly your mind
and then
your heart
both open up
to heal
and then
to believing it
for real

the future is yours
right now you hold it
in the palm of your hand
deep in your heart
and in your mind too
you deserve so much more
you really really do

mon ami
so far away
in distance
but not in
heart nor mind
of mine
wishing you well
hoping you're fine

stealin yes i agree
sometimes balancing
is toughest to achieve
other times it ain't
worth energy
time or attempts
other times
just best to shrug
'n go with the flow

always enough crap
has to be dealt with
pick important stuff
let all the rest go

focus on your wants
focus on your needs
check into thoughts
don't make em creed
i'm learning i'm learning
too being nice to me

TiM thank you for leaving such strong imagery here; i'm humbly honored; ty
ad back again thankfully; you had us in quite the tizzy blister, no more disappearing acts, pinkie blood sister; promise?

hopeful dear~ been there many years ago, it is i that am grateful for all of you and this thread we weave as traverse our lives. it is with simple appreciation i leave you this

only one me simply complex its true
not sad anymore seems for now again i found my glue
can make anything happen will it to be
even if it doesn't seem so today just breathe and believe

upon facing demons we all gain our strength
pulling ourselves up and lending collective hands to steady
onto solid foundation WE sculpt ourselves freely at last
now today is beautiful now how to make it last?

anyone can do it if i can, n him n her n you too!

takes but time and truth we can help
in strength hoped for; then realized
my me has evolved
even despite or IN spite of each of those demons

believe in the power of YOU
even when or if you don't feel like it
no one can take you away from yourself
zooming through your thoughts screaming through skies
oozing from past scars we all learn to heal
deciding the future is yours free for the taking
is an act of self emancipation sorely needed
and daring to dream makes it so if you believe
zenith of infinite possibilities all waiting for you
evoked and called upon white spirits dance
pried from deeply within to peruse then throw out what doesn't work any longer
ensuring past stays there; where it belongs
now you are safe in whispers and love
even in darkest of darkness you still DO have your mind your body your spirit
show your light as a lamp unto others continue your way and your path

solely yes completely fully understanding and gaining realization is
all for you yourself and YOU; because yes you are worth this and more too
vie for your own attention be true to yourself
every good intention laid at your very feet
demand from yourself for yourself take no second best

my heart touched too from many others i first learned hope
you are safe sweet innocent woman finally i say it is so

live for today; now take a deep breath and jump into your future!
i have done it myself and now i am
free as a bird soaring in my own dreams
easy? hell no, but so so worth it; surely you already this know

i believe in you dear and most
thankful to let you know you are indeed not alone
sweetest thing to know, eh

try just your best it's all any of us can ever do
really glad you are here being you
undaunted am i anymore to face truth; there is just no other way of strength
everything grew upon foundation scraped and made stronger in each passing day

witty dear, thank you for showing us all courage
ad i know you have it; that stuff makes us soul sisters, thank you for gracing this page with your heart
tenz good thing to break free from any chains that bind and blind us to living our lives for ourselves; ty
rc, beautiful write from your heart; thank you for leaving it here
cboots, thank you too, for your encouragement here for a hurting lamb and simple yet wise truth yes, this too shall indeed pass!

the sun peeks
into and underneath
my eyelids
warming me
yet softly
prying them

it plays
in my hair
tousling it
mussing it
tugging it
pulling harder
biding me
from reverie
of you
with the
softest whispers
of my sighs
to this
current state

it hits
rolls around
on my skin
it liquefies
then undoes itself
leaving smoke
mixed scents
of myself
earl grey tea
eden's wassa itself
i smile
to myself
inhaling breathing
i stir
i become

he knows things i could never
Posted: 1/25/2007 5:30:32 PM
there is a bird
i'm sorry to say
but really true
he just looks
that way

he somehow every day
finds his own dear way
outside my windows
every morning he chirps
demandingly, loudly
at my bedroom pane

every nightfall
he's back again
now this time near the
big picture window
in my living room
he stands loudly stating
only God knows
what he's saying

being a curious sort
i consider him and
what is he trying
to impart to relay
to tell me
so meanwhile
me, i'm wondering
what has he
to me to say
what tale
is he full of
i wonder
if he perhaps
even knows
about you
that i don't
haven't still
couldn't yet
possibly fathom

you see he is
something else
kind of like you
and myself too
in that regard
he is insistent
he is persistent
every morning
each nightfall
without fail
he knows which
room i'm in
methinks he
has some sort
of magical powers
of bird dom
he's endearing
even in his
strong demands
makes me adore
him for his own ways
but he's not playin
the little dude
he is very very serious
believe me please
when you read
this what i'm saying

sometime soon
i plan on inviting
him in for umm
select crumbs
for steeped tea
and crushed almonds
luscious greens and seeds
just to see and hear
what he if anything
will then tell me
shhh i might even
let you in on it

i own my emotions
i accept my devotions
i desire knowledge
i am curious within
my own curiosity

i am but flesh and bones
carbon matter
pints of liquids
gas and smoke and
bits of digesting foods
grey matter and lip color
lips and toes and fingers
petite small ears
all the better to hear you...
blood yes i am of blood

i am lustful without
feeling of any guilt or sin
i am capable flexible
i am content within
my very soul
yet yearning still
for more, more
i am hungry to learn
i am hungry and burn
i am but only me
i am a strong woman
while i am fragile
and sensitive too
i am a young child
naive but jaded
suspicious sometimes
i am many things
but still i am only me

and i am wondering
just whom i'll be
when comes tomorrow
but i hope i still smell
of bulgari and almonds

Two things my in my life I know to be true:
I'm picky about shoes (because I hate them)
and pickier about perfume (because I love smells)

I've had few shoes in my life
and fewer perfumes.
Till twenty, Shalimar
Till thirty, Replique
Till forty, China musk
Till fifty, Loren
Till sixty, Escape
At sixty-four: Jicky

Except for my Daddy's
Old Spice, and on him only,
I've never loved a man who smelled
other than sweaty.
Until, just the other day
when this majikal gent
just strolled into my life
wearing Bulgari Aqua. . . .

How *did* he know?

Dreaming still.
Posted: 1/26/2007 8:09:20 PM
thank YOU, wooby, yes i know what you mean; thank YOU for sharing and claypot too, what a lovely dream!

something about me
i'm picky about my shoes
because i love them so
'n picky too about scent
because well it just moves
something anamalistic
from deep inside me
something just grows

i prefer boots
stilletos or heels chunky
both suit me fine
i have more than
too many kinds
in red black brown
they all feel divine

and my skechers
my vans n my roks
east 5th and franco sarto
single pair o martins docs
kenneth cole in suede
simply classic black
i can pull off wearing
em by pairing them
with skirts, pants
camouflage shorts
whatever strikes
my moment's fancy

i own too many pairs
because they're funky
'n feel so great to wear

suede striped pink
and brown polos
i refer to as my
curious george sneaks
all new and cushy inside
really love those things

i still own far back
in my closet a pair
of unbelievably feminine
worn leather aviator boots
with lots of lacing to do
i've worn them to bits
hiking all over this
glorious earth and
haven't bothered
to replace them yet

fussy little strappy
things for formals too
i have spent hours
searching out the
just perfect shoe

i like leather
its true
sexy spanish mules
sexy italian sliders
showing off my toes
sandals wild
only a gypsy like me
would ever be
caught in
wildly expensive
yes but they just
make me sigh

the uggs my mom
gifted me i adore
pull em on to jaunt
quick like to the store
even sometimes
while wearing shorts

pointy toed things
and slinky too
i have too many
but in this case
knowing exactly
what with them
i can plan to do

but now if we're
talking scent
i adore only
certain ones...

as far as perfume
for myself
i have my favorites
salvadore dali black
gap's om
sea spa body mist
egyptian princess oil
(sometimes) prada
boucheron's jaipur
boucheron's jaipur saphir
kenneth cole's black
breathe calm scents
i like mixing essential oils
combining my own scents
for and to my own liking
and yes i always wear scent
even if only just hiking
what a better way
to celebrate our earth's gifts
but in scented whiffs?

thank you for my first smile of this desert morning stealin, i loved "remnants of a loving woman" and sweet dear woman; i beg to differ it is now a happily ever after; perhaps different than you meant~ but you are stronger, more beautiful and now with graceful strength of essence; of hope itself!

never say never
don't you ever
uh uh give up
your dreams
for they are
they are better
than gold or silver
or diamonds
they are of and
from you
those are your
future songs
and tears
to get past any
necessary roughness
anything you might
want to dislike
about yourself

you were borne
of a thousand stars
in the brilliance
of hundreds of moons
i know this simply
from the f realm
of my fantasies
twirling in these
deepest of my parts
and embedded soul

the last time
i went looking
i surprisingly
found myself
somehow smaller
then larger again
deja vu from
the womb
that sense of
under the toadstools
somewhere else
long ago far away
funny that
right there all along
there i am again
re birthed as if from
the very earth
herself for it is she
that knows my
innermost me

hiking today
jaunting out
perhaps about
an hour time
has stopped
its greedy ways
glorious red rocks
streams trees
wildlife flora fauna
stopping first for
the burros carrots
and apples then
forging onward
back pack packed
many senses reeling
knowing soon
desert scents i'll
be feeling

i found long long ago
that nature heals
many things simple
many parts and pieces
complexities of my me

i will think of you
as i sit in the
blazing sun today
i will see your face
in the canyons
and clouds
rock formations
in the rabbits and birds
the insects below me

today i may again
find myself
outside of my own body
blowing through and beyond
what i've known
my soul reawakening
so excited me
my breath is quickening
my thoughts are racing
my soul is singing
wanna come with me?

the burros are waiting
inquisitively, hungry

i carry your heart

stealing, thank you sweet woman; you too are very precious!
amielle dear; you ARE your own flag; thank you for sharing here.
ad darling, you come in and out of my mind so often, more than nice to see your lovely words this evening; thank you.

i carry your heart with me
i carry it in my heart
i am never without it
anywhere i go you go
my dear; and
whatever is done
by only me is your doing
my darling

i fear no fate
for you are my fate,
my sweet
i want no world
for beautiful
you are my world
my true
and it's you
are whatever a moon
has always meant
and whatever a sun
will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret
nobody knows
here is the root
of the root
and the bud
of the bud
and the sky
of the sky
of a tree called life
which grows higher
than the soul can hope
or mind can hide
and this is the wonder
that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart
i carry it in my heart

just arrived back from the store
just a quick run
messy hair no make up
but lip wax
brown suede vans
japanese silk
purple n gold threaded pajama bottoms
purple tank with skinny straps
sage green courderoy
ralph lauren jacket
to cover my tits
went to get only
some cigarettes
ended up getting a cart
too much to carry
into it went
seedless black grapes
purple plums
a bit of roast beast
shredded cabbage
edam cheese
more juice and
a bouquet of flowers
i could not resist
their beauty
calling out to me

the small tree
i wanted to get
yesterday was gone
through disappointment
still i was good
i bought not
even one book
nor any magazines
but i looked at them
thought of you
and realized
i didn't need them
or want them
they can not fill
any void
you could
for it is you
that carries my heart
