Thanks Luri, just to let you know you are appreciated here.

White liquid pearls,
falling from an oyster heaven,
coat of luminescence,
sparkling majesty.

As if, hidden in a flame
of white lightning, blinding
the eyes of winter's artistry,
etched cathedrals
hidden in glass,
hosting the last supper
to spring's birth.

Fill our bellies, fill our lungs,
We still got the taste dancing on our tongues.
Darling the spirit is kicking,
Don't be fooled by the moonshine, it's tricking.

Claiming midnight,
ebony dreams,
calming black roses,
along charcoal streams,
painted white canvas,
aligned with the moon,
a portrait of evening,
singing it's tune.

bringing this home from First, Last line

Then my soul will lift in high spirits
and all can watch it take flight,
armed to the hilt,
from the mountains of night,
smoke and the fire
from the village below,
the stench of dead bodies
laid out in a row,
swift hand of justice
zeroed in from the hill,
one squeeze of the trigger
would end with a kill,
as night turned to day,
the rains filled the air,
a cleansing of blood,
let no man despair.

I've chased a thousand dreams,
no longer shadows haunting
tomorrow, nor sorrows of the past.

I've Laid a thousand thoughts,
no longer unimagined,
and yet, there are days and nights without you.

I have uttered a thousand words,
phrases and expressions that fall short
of a single loving touch.

paint one thousand words
across naked flesh what waits
for touches less the sad refrain
remaining in the shadows

brushes gentle colors bright
a long meridians what hope
to fire alive when all was lost
yet captured through my window

Crap!.....busted again!!!

The fireside seems abandoned lately,
except for you....and the ghosted flames,
seems the flicker has faded in the shadows,
falling into embers glow, waiting to be stoked,
aroused to a burning inferno,

white heat, shaping sweat to molten rivulets,
once more the hand sets fire to the flesh,
reaching heights above the desired,
drawing a valley of ecstacy
around each gasp.

not abandoned
just sitting here quietly
enjoying the fire peacefully
feeling the warmth of the hearth
though the stone is hard and dark
such smooth soothing energy
releasing stress and worry
deeply relaxing me
so gratefully

The bell tolls
in a morbid frost,
icing the ears
with frozen sound,
while the hound
cries!
howling, not at the moon,
but at the frigid corpse
lying in the shadows,
while the birds relished
with the passing of
the Scare Crow.

distracted by a vision

of hexagon flakes and
each of their faces-
a matrix of matrices.
holding hands they melt
those frosty fingerprints
into droplets and stream
still bonded in nature's way
....sufficient to the day


snow on my daffs this morning....brrrr

Eeeek! Snow on your Daffs?? warm and sunny here.

I do not live
in a quoted world,
that all too familiar drum
that beats direction,
silenced, from it's
brow of morn,
silenced from it's
scorn,
unfolding to a new world,
void of the sounds
of drone,
where no one is alone,
but given their place
of honor.

this time

i will hold you as the pain
of winter bites like ice
piercing,
shards of wisdom remain
lingering awaiting spring
fiercely,
winter ends as you bathe
in younger seasons' truths
the tierce

of time

thanks Rosie and Luri...love the writes you two!

Nay to daggered heart,
pierced, but beating,
love fleeting
in instant death,
imminent dreams
postponed,
honed
in love's absence
to a fine blade,
sharpened by the eye
of doom.

little flits here and there...
small fires burning everywhere
as the sweat rolls down
I wonder if I've found
the energy to keep it together...

It's called edit
when you write
you proof the spillings
before annoucing them to the world

Yes
I love him
but no one really
for he claims I must love myself
a more conceited individual
I've yet to know
I even think
I make sense
on occasion...

What's this I've found>?
Margaritas didn't bring it out
Perhaps it's the lingering feeling of doubt
and wanting to run
to somewhere I've never belonged
can I fight the battles
within my mind
sleep is over...
wake up time

Morbid armor of thy fate,
die a graceless death...
covet not thy evil,
thus shall I slay thee
upon blood rock,
thine eyes shall peer
alone...
severed from thy righteous body,
casting out invading spirits,
thus shall ye know
swift the justice sword,
peril no more Goddess
on your departure.

Invading spirits
that deceive a heart so
confusing ones mind
on which way to go
Severed from
thy righteous thoughts
leaving wisdom
in far away spots
covet thy emotions
of wants and desires
for inside a heart
are kindling fires

Sara and Mandrake...thought about what you both were saying and tried tying the two together...hope you don't mind...was bit of a challenge. Both wonderful writes that has sent my head reeling with thoughts. Have a good evening, both of you.
