may this moment of mystery
make a mark on your history
for it seems maybe it could be
a message from your ancestry
sending as they sometimes do
their guiding wisdom through
and may I add that I'm so glad
relaxing here by the fireside
as your thread of discovery
found the page of a century
I'll take this opportunity
to express sincerely
I love you manny!

remember a thousand ago?
remember time flying
seasons changing
as friendships ebb & flow?
true family creates itself, dear M
wonderful to celebrate someone so wonderful!

Thank you Juju...I sure do remember the thousand ago!

Like a time capsule,
wrapped in calico white,
possessing dreams of things to come,
take heed of things in flight,

like creatures

lost in love's delight,
and there, the emblem free,
standing firm,
forever to be....
released,

and in that moment,
embrace with your heart,
the memories made,
and those yet to start!

The gasps, anonymous,
following feint whispers
on painted winds,
howling at the ressurection
of uncertainty,
the wings of ebony
closing in, surrounding
shadows in liquid forest,
collections of day
slowly slipping it's
strands of light,
along corridors
of emerald darkness,
the path ignited
in a wooven tapestry,
it's magnificence,
untouched
splendor.

Friendships come, friendships go
yet some are meant to last a lifetime.
No matter the distance, no miles can separate
the connection of spirits felt here.
For the heart knows not of geographical matters,
but only the love felt between our shared works.
A fireside of friends to warm the toes,
share laughter and smiles, some fears and desires.
A place we can come, to feel safe and secure
for we are a part of ... not apart from
here at Manny's fireside ~
a place to call home.

bringing this one home.

In clear and distant sky,
tis here, that, as I lie

dreaming.......

of you,
your vision,
as we stand
at opposite ends
of indecision,
one path,
two hearts
searching,
peering through
darkness,
your silhouette
bathed in moonlight,
drawing ever closer,
hands reaching,
connecting,
from a long journey's
night into love.

bringing this home from Sarah's thread.

I walk, with no particular swagger,
tho no man is an island, I stand alone...
deliberating, in that..."deliberate" sort of way!
the dictates of my soul.

I walk, not with fear, but with vision,
knowing my path, my pain, and the virtue...
oh spirit, I shall not forsake thee,
even in the worst of times.

and
still
I walk

alone!

bringing this one home from Abstracts

Sometimes when the wind blows,
carried in the mystic breeze, seeds,
auras that glisten, deliverance
of wordsmiths, gracing the realm
of possibility and the unknown..
and sometimes when the wind blows,
we hold our breath, mesmerized by
the swaying crowns, a sensuous
dance of emeralds, transformed
into artistry, words of a poet,
who sculpts the masterpiece.

bringing this one home from "Dreams and Reality thread"

Dreams and reality,
for some, a thin strand
of sanity, hanging by a thread,
beyond good and evil,
beyond that point of
no return, parallel lines
of thought, close, but
just out of reach, souls
lost in free fall,
grasping in panic mode,
for the ripcord,
that one last chance,
to turn the dream
into reality.

Embracing--Letting Go

As we embrace the sunsets of our lives
we let go knowing that
we will once again, its beauty embrace

As I let go,
I know that each day
will forever bring
one more memory,
one more thought ,
one more smile,
one more onslaught of tears

For there is no once again embrace
for sunsets,
Just a warm greeting for the sunrise

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY LADIES

May love touch you,
whether by memories,
or personal closeness,
may you look in someone's eyes,
and see yourself looking back,
see a heart beating
with your name on it,
may your lips
be set on fire
with just a graze,
and may your hand feel another's
palm, warming you,
exciting your pulse
as you walk with
Cupids love.

awww manny...what a loving wish...
and may all that you say
also return to you
as cupid's love
fills your soul too
may every breath
bring deep happiness
and gratitude for all life's bliss
for love is our heart's sacredness
shared so de-light-fully with a kiss

four times today
they came and went
like spring tidal bores
thundering through
overunning the blue
black manes waving behind
and hooves pounding horizons

four times today
you came and went
my mind's meanderings
wayward pathways
clearing the day's haze
smatterings of mem'ries
capturing the breeze.


four times today
i came and went
like a bee in a garden
out a few for pollen
and back with a hauling
sweet hoping for honey
all i found was sky and sea.

i creep between your shadows
smudge your edges ruffle
and pleasure what the sun
leaves for me to seek


and when they lengthen how
do we reconcile the past
with future risings of our sun
with dusk's crayon overlay

so simple is the light of you
cast with measures of a season
of culmination's altitude and
and the darkness' setting view


she scintillates he vacillates
the shadow grows around
the trees and hearts carved into
a shadow of their memories

I selected a crayon from the box
Began to paint a glorious future
When the heat was on
the wax did melt... capturing moments I never saw coming

When was the moment
How can I recapture
that white page...
no ink or wax to get in the way

You claim our colors won't mix
you claim this is just a childish fix
I crave
everyday
why won't the picture fade away?

I try to reconsider
develop new scenes
but my heart always goes back to
that thin little crayon
peel the paper back
illuminate the strength
wanting to do it
all over again...

no such thing as too many ellipses....

batik

i am the wax on your weave
a bit cracked
but warm to the touch
protective
selective
malleable in your hands

life seeps through the cracks
stains waiting folds
deep with doubt
with love with
splashes of dark
in the light from your eyes

melted heart cries

luri: don't know when the ellipses started... but they sure are fun :)

Hot candle wax pours over
the scent of yesterday's fire
Why did the flame go out
What happened to the uncontrollable desire?

Oh, I remember
It's stored away inside
You cannot put your finger
On me, I'll run and hide

But how I love words
just spitting them out here and there
I can take a trip in my mind
and come back without a care

Seeing this masterpiece
unfurl before my eyes
watching the colors fade
feeling the need to lie
about my heart
my mind
seeing hues
you'll never find

On the corner of the street
get to tapping those feet
and fall away into my heart
oh, why did we have to part?

am I worried over wax
or is it simply just my lack
of better judgment
Heaven sent
straight from Hell
I knew it well
still I follow
my mind is hollow
like a melted crayon
and empty wrapper
got to break away
stop all this chatter...

oh m'lady sari

i'm addicted to ellipses...they stop impulsivity...
we need a way to add ellipses to the spoken word, too....
somthing other than:
ya know
like
er, um, well
ugh...and so...



lax judgment
sometimes heaven sent
to crack the pot
and out the spot
of light to be un-pent...

inside the wax
wafts heaven's scent
unwrapt fine hues
(writs pay the dues)
and sealed with love's intent

I hope I got the right thread for this or is this just poetry I was hoping to post a quote, well it can be considered as a quote but to me it's a code I live by.
