this one is a bit older, but one of my favs.

Rekindled

Thou hast found lost hearts broken,
severed in trespass of vows once spoken,
minds like gardens flourishing green,
lay in wait of what had been.

By tender love of nurtured heart,
thou hast mended each in part,
where spirit embers silent cries,
rekindled flames hath given rise.

one of my more cherished pieces...

Judgement!

I am,
in abstract,
a form,
existing
in illusions,
intrusions
of light,
reflecting
what you believe
you see,
yet all you see
is an abstract
of reality,
an image
of your creation,
a picture,
out of focus,
always changing,
rearranging
the lens
of life.

New one

Love

When leaves fall,
I remember you.

When the rain
brushes my cheeks,
I remember your touch.

When the sun
file me with warmth,
I remember your arms.

When the moon
and stars shine,
I remember your eyes.

When the music
begins to play,
I remember how we danced.

When I look
in the mirror,
I still see you there.

but when I look
inside my heart,
I remember your love!!!

My hand is on the roof of your world
you surround me
I surround you
You are my house
and my windows and doors
and last night when we lit candles
because the power went out,
you informed me that clams
reproduce without even touching
and I replied "so do flowers"
one flower over out yonder
gets their pollen on the tip of a bee's toe
and the the slightest touch of that toe
on a completely unknowing flower
completes the act of flower love
and then we just smiled into each others eyes
so glad that we don't have
that kind of love where even the slightest
touch of your hand on the roof of my world
reminds me that you surround me
and I surround you and
we are each others windows and doors

thanks Fofee, love your write, cool analogies

just a change of pace..a little slapstick write.

Tinks I pull up me knickers
and ave sum fun,

an grabs me gun,
out to da woods
fer a romp er two,
why not eh?
da sky are blue!

So I sits an I listens
fer a sound to appere,
not a creature is stirrin,
not even a deer,

when ups by da river,
I hear voices fer sure,
looks thru da bush,
but still just a blurr

den naked as blue jays,
I swears on me life,
dere's Freddy and Bobbi
and...OMG...dat's me wife!

Bang!

^^^

Reminds me of a time
Long ago forgotten
My beau du jour,
Trying to be romantic
Took me to a natural clearing
By the side of a mountain

He had thought of everything
For a city man, it was pretty amazing
The weather, the blue skies
Everything was perfect, Oh my...

By proxy, nature, between us, took its course
Until I felt angry ants crawling up my buttocks!

I pushed him off with such great force!
Unbeknownst to him, my translucent a s s
Was sitting right on top of an ant hill's palace
Those buggers crawled everywhere
There he is standing with me prancing
Jumping all over the place,
And went straight for the lake
Butt naked with my blouse still on
Jumped in the friggen cold water
Scared a few frogs

What do I see running towards me
An erected penis going up and down
He's trying to pull up his pants, hoping around
Without sensure,
I swore like a drunken sailor !!!
Those d a m n e d buggers bit me in places
That I did not know I had,
Did you know my name means full of grace?
Geez.... So much for romance...

my sweetest Anna Banana-
only you darlin' can recall such adventure
and still giggle~

I guess I was a city girl ho
I would have brushed off the ants
moved and banged his brains out
in my days of youth of course
now I want a hotel with room service~
(in pretty lingerie with matching ribbons on my paddle)

Lovely Ann, thanks for sharing. And Meow....tell me more! hahaha

Painted Faces

See the painted faces
amid the faceless crowd,
bodies walking aimlessly,
heads above the cloud,

followers following followers
in a clear uncertain gait,
speaking random noises,
in tones that seem irate,

like drones of innercity
that fumble in their cry,
always asking the question
why oh why oh why!

A dance of elicit joy
Spins my limbs
To dizzying speed
In the moments of frenzy
All secrets give way
To discovery
Of passion’s life
In trickles of salty beads

Ahhhh, hello dear friend

The Leaf

Within the pages
of an old book,
I found a leaf,
and began to look
everywhere I could
for it's origin.

It spoke of love
from long ago,
of times we shared
in nights that grow,
long and endless
on summer eves,

and a single leaf
of eves sweet mist,
pressed forever
when we kissed.

I held onto everything
ever given
each card, letter,
trinket, candy bar wrapper,
pressed petals, valentines.
Carefully they were stored
in clear totes so I could easily see
I once was loved
I could easily remember
how we wrapped our eyes
around each other
asking for
and receiving
everything

Forgotten times

I still remember
those late night walks,
I still remember
those late night talks,

when, hand in hand
beneath the moon,
with blanket spread
across the dune,

We kissed, made love,
with passion's bliss,
forgotten times
that I still miss.

My dearest D,
we meet again,
it's been too long
remembering when,
those good ole days,
we'd laugh or cry,
not too sure
I remember why
but you I've missed,
and the times we shared,
whether sad or happy,
bold or scared

so now and then,
I drop on by,
even if,
just to say hi!

and let you know how special you are and always will be.

Posing

Posing in the eloquence,
naked to the elements
of deception,
baring the soul
to a single judgement:
Is this the finest
of finery?
or would you deny me
that moment
to rise again?
should I pose in
the eloquence
of your image...
or my own!

ah, the soft dip
behind a prominent collarbone
sole against calf under covers
warmth contrasting winter's chill
what starts with a giggle
ends with a purr
spooned to sleep

reminiscing

Here I lay,
in some sweet
yet sombre field,
reminiscing
in random thoughts,
undisturbed by
reasons of logic,
even the flute
of the sheppard,
in it's melancholy tune,
is less haunting
than my own thoughts,
drowning out
the magnificence
that lay before me,
and here
I am invited
back to a softer,
gentler time,
that far too often
I seem to ignore,
perhaps there is a more
logical conclusion,
but my reasoning
escapes my futility.

The Canoe Poet

You breathe the water in your lungs
And words of silence mist into the air
Upon the banks are some fondest friends
The cat tails know your scent
Ever so gently your paddle calls
And the fishies sing your name
Some times us humans get lucky
And paper makes music too
I listen to the notes inside
As they feed me well
Remembering the sweet kind man you are



Took me a while but I found it! It needed to come home!
