I turn to you in blue
and green, waving lavender's
banners, calling across the river

Is it hope that
brings us here?
Or longing?

I feel you in my sleep
just behind me,
real and breathing

I wasn't unhappy,
was peaceful really
Grandmother, what
have you to say?

And say it again, please

Where did you go
When you disappeared
Replaced
By an insecurity
All the rage in the world couldn’t cover for.
It seeped out,
And tainted everything
Showing your confidence
As the false bravado
Of ignorance
And lack.
Were you born split wide open like that
Or did your greatest fear slay you?
You never will be,
Will you,
Beyond a wish that cannot come true?
I’ll imagine where it might have flown
And mourn the loss of yesterday.
For tomorrow has not yet arrived.

Better than butter beans
is a granddaughter's kiss

is a marshmallow, specially
roasted, by a grandson

One could search
crannies and corners

Swim many rivers
Climb many mountains

And not find a place
half so sweet

for the heart's home

To the luscious young man a courting me
when asked ~~ the age difference? ~~
said boldly, "All cats look alike in the dark"
I have to say: Not a great seduction line

And wrong. They don't even feel alike. . . .

Lie to me about how beautiful my eyes are
and how they make you feel

Lie to me about your mother
your father
your wife
your history

But do not, ever,
lie to me about poetry

"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind."
~~ Gandhiji

From where comes
the need for pain?
The belief it makes
you free?

Who sez to a child
this hurts me more
than it hurts you?

It's only because
I love you. . . ?

That all joy
forever
must be bartered
for pain?

That chain
link by link
must be gnawed through
not passed on

The price of joy
is joy
The price of love
is love

There is no
other rule

Walter

I almost thought afterward
that he believed himself

Making interesting a world
grown old and bored
with itself

That in another time or place
he might have been honored
for this calling

Remembering what never happened
What might have been, if only

Benjamin Franklin coined the phrase...."in the dark, all cats are grey".......

I am soo looking forward to a cup of tea with you, and midnight chatters.
It's poets moon tonight.

Ahhhhh
Snake bitten’
Damn that moon has got me in her golden grips
And I am dewdropped with desire
Tumbling through indigo muse
And re-pattern the stars
I sail off into the universe
To seek my destiny there

are you sitting comfortably? then we'll begin
Posted: 5/29/2007 238 PM


I usually think of Spring as the First Girl
light bright and joyful
trailing lilacs and roses
as she treads
tralalas all the way

This one has felt something
like a Mack truck
huge engine roaring
vibration to the bone
power power down
and to hell with tralalas
let's just getter done!

And let me say
I'm liking it
just fine

I saw your golden moon Ravin
creeping up over the beech tree
sitting out on my deck
under a canopy of leaves
hot, oh yes it's hot tonight
my body thermometer isn't quite working
the way I think it should
time for a tune-up
or to sneak over the fence
into the neighbour's yard
the pools open
I bet that water is cool and inviting
I have a pool on either side of the house
and no one is swimming
I guess I'm just a waterbaby at heart
skinny dipping under a golden moon
would be heaven right now
I could pretend I was sleepwalking
if anyone found me
oh Wooby how is that stream right now?

Stacey, lol! And tra la la to you, too!!

Autumn, lovely fantasy. My puddle of a river, behaving rather well just now. My grandbabies had a glorious wet weekend. It hasn't been anything like hot here, yet. A little warm, with cool nights. And sort of in an out cloudy for quit a few days, and a few more to go.

Once in a blue moon
Lovers find each other
After lifetimes of waiting
For just the right circumstance
To begin the long slow dance
Of building desire.
Fate peeks out from behind the sybaritic memories
That shift like smoke
As the flames play each others face
Across the distance of forever.
Step back, pause
Fight the waves of insecurity
And past hurts daring to dare
Trusting the rare
Deep mystery of that fire.
Slowly circling the inevitable
Escalating the untasted passion
Enjoying the aromas
And promises of the lifelong feast to come.
It is a craft
This lovemaking of old souls
That happens
Once in a blue moon.

Why?

Yes is the new tender tendril
creeping over the edge
of the cup on the window ledge
reaching for light.

No is the cup turned over

Yes is the slender ray
in the prism
making rainbows across the room

No is the shade pulled down

Yes is the sweet song
hummed under the breath at play

No is the Be quiet

So why when yes is life and hope and joy
is no the stronger?

^^^^^^^^
no is surely not in your house Wooby.............

flower's grace

forming a circle
cream and purple irises
stand as backdrop
against the fuschia
punch of the peonies
entering my drive
I am taken aback
at the beauty
haphazardly planned
they remind me
in the best way
of happy accidents
and the forgiveness
of nature

Perhaps happy accidents are our salvation?

Alas, even in my house, a yes doesn't overpower a no.
