happy new year manny, i am sure it will be a good one !!! hope 2010 will bring health good spirits and wonderful times, to you and all.

Time had no power
Over me and you
I pick you up and swept you off
Two spirits intermingled
They loved to play
Dancing together in every way
Our ghosts were so close
They melted together
Time had no power
Where spirits meet
No power when aura
Are flickering fiery
Twisting and combing
Way deepdown inside of thee
Digging and laying the way you admire me
Spirits collide they love so silently
Wickedly playful
Deep and covertly
No on can see them as they cavort
Supernaturally
They bounce in the lake
And skip o’er the sand
Like two balloons on high
Bobbing and climbing up in the sky

Like two balloons on high
Bobbing and climbing up in the sky
Until the air in them reseeds
The thorns of life intercede
Scratching and pulling until we heed
The energy is taken
Away from our minds
The spirits slow from the pain of the world
The mask exposed
With shame on the girl
The spirits deflate
And are hard to find
Like a flame of gas coughing
And puffing
The fuel or the oxygen it’s properly missing
But the matter of substance
Is still there
Chilling
Waiting
Reciting
Remembering how willing
The spirits once were
A lifetime of living
Accumulated into 5 years of loving
Only the fuel for this fire is missing
The solid remains
Of bodies entwining
Hoping one day for their ghosts
Reuniting

Thank you mrbfree...what a great write!

Hunter's Moon

What voice shall speaketh of night,
Hasten thee, away from light
of day, speak to the mask of darkness,
there, in the wooded clearing,
wrapped in the succulent beams of moon
she writhes, in veils of softest silk,
a silhouette of flesh
beckoning, longing her love,
to couple night, into day,
and day into night,
that the magic of the mask
shall reveal the eyes of passion,
writhing faster in naked splendor,
veils in the wind, her flesh
one with the hunter,
her love
from long ago!

i spoke to the Night
Scintillations- she answered
as the Full Snow Moon
hid in the echoes of
Timeless Harmonies
what glorious scores.

she wove Endless Tapestries
at Heaven's door i bowed
to sidereal beats. her
physics untold but to
curious souls swept into
chaos and roiling cores.

Thank you Luri, love the write, and the visit.

of chaos and crickets
and nymphs in the thickets,
tin pans and ladels,
and sticks on white pickets,
these are a few of the memories we share.

sung to the tune of...Maria...from the Sound of Music.

come to me
O gentle spirit,
light thy path of empathy,
that thou shall walk among
the shadows dim,
and the cries of the Lepers
shall be fed..
Come to me,
O gentle spirit,
show me the way,
that I might touch the hand
of healing,
forever remove the sin of pain,
be healed!

The Hand of Time

Touched the lands

Of all who knew

To reach to Him.



Flingertips draw ripples

from The Hands of Rhyme

Souls are tickled

Beneath waves of Time.



Wandering into the sea

Like a jutting peninsula

The Hand of Seas

Washes the beach.



The Creator shrugs

And watches us flounder

Both eyes yet on one side of

The Healing Hand of God...

fried egghead muses
emu black or robin blue-
what was the question?

featherheaded bird
stares at nest and egg-now what?
stratagem eludes

spiritual play
between elemental bonds
universal gift...

snow blew in again....
walking is inviting
but treacherous driving
sliding last night
even going slow
I love all the white
love its glow
but in the night
with the wind
creating white outs
my heart beats fast
an anxiety attack
when I can't see the tracks
though in the headlights
the snow is creating
the image of warp-speeding
a delight I was needing

so....snow....
a paradox you know....
love the white show
love the beauty of
her ethereal glow
love the trees
with their white sleeves
and the path
such powder softness as I go
but with ice beneath
and the wind blowing her
down my neck
think I'll stay here
by the fire today and play
and to work?
I want to say, what the heck?

and yet....
I'm more responsible than that
so I'll soon brave the drive
or the beautiful lady
depending on me
won't thrive
and could even die
if I don't arrive....
so maybe...just maybe....
the drive today
will fill me with that feeling
of gratefully being alive


sorry...hardly poetic....more like a narrative
of my state of mind at the moment...as the snow continues to fall
and the wind is howling and I can tell it's bloody cold!

bringing this one home...........

bringing this one homeFilling the pen
with a rich man's blood,
the writing is deep,
as it begins to flood
the pages of life
turning,...and not a drop was lost.

and no one knew his wealth,
but they knew his words of love!

chocolate ice cream
nut-hidden identity
drown my mood in sauce

perhaps some spooning
and a few pleasurable
licks and captured drips

it IS sundae...

Wow! Just turning 100 pages! Unbelievable! Guess it's time to clean the chimney!

Once in a very long time
something touches that sacred place,
where rhyme and reason
vacate, and nothing makes sense,
translating confusion
becomes impossible,
only the heart
can unravel it's mystery,
once in a very long time!

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.
