Corked

I dreamed of syllables,
floating
just beyond my reach;
emotions corked,
bound
upon restless seas of words.
but, I’ll write you anyway
in my mind,
pass you in glances
through eyes
where love speaks
the loudest.

Insomniac

I watched the color fade from my face,
the smile, fall; hide behind distrust.

The muse, she plays me like a fiddle,

dances at 3:00 a.m.
when there is no music,
like a stream of consciousness
never coming up for air
swept away in oceans
in sweetest notes,
tip of tongues,
deeper

than a supernatural love.

Love Letter #66- Eternal

You bring comfort
in a skyful of fireflies,
an open palm
full of wildflowers,
fingertips,
plucking petals,

“he loves me,
he loves me not.”

3:00 am awakenings
and an old Underwood
typewriter make a home
in my musings, as psalms
sweeten the chorus
of this eternal love story.

Petalled Promises

Breeze me away like tumbleweeds;
like untamed dandelions in flight,
carrying me closer to you.

I curtsy to this torrent of rain,
for, with pouring out,

comes growth;

petalled promises to flower.

If only I could bottle your light,
swallow the stars you conduct;
recite their delight from my throat,
hold them in my belly;
in the center of my spirit
to share with others, this love,

like this gift I hold;
this book you left behind.

Lost and Found

I found you beside the honeysuckle bush,
shining upon my childhood summers,

felt you in the wake of nightmares,
gentling my heartbeat, encompassed
by the warmth of you,
of your presence;

shadow in the mirror,
recipient of my prayers,
you trace my footsteps,

even now,

when the walk is long
and the road, unpaved.

Birdsong

I awakened to syllables
in musical notes
from the window sill;

a glistening hue of scarlett
through sheer bedroom curtains.

You traced my steps,
followed droplets of tears
and dried each one
with the hem of your garment;

ivory,

with shades
of scarlett.

Petalled Kiss

Let your love wash over me;
cleanse the deceit from my hair,
the suffering from my hands
of those who let go

and left me in pieces.

Cover this blue
with the pink hue
of camellias,
soft, subtle
like your whisper;

like your petalled kiss
upon my cheek.
