Now is a quiet time

A place for verse

A space for rhyme.

What better way

In heart and mind

To end the day.

The day is ended

Work is done

Wrongs are mended.

The evening sky

In star filled dark

Asks not why

We search for love

‘neath silver moon

And stars above.

In this blissful peace

We find solace

(and) all else will cease.

The spirit inside

Finds its release

And no longer hides.

Words flow easily

The dream begins

And the page is filled.

~~ Eternal Love ~~   2 comments

________________________________________

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After a long and hectic day

It’s become a quiet, peaceful night

Relaxing in the dark, I find my way

Hidden from the world and all its lights

1

Travelling backward in time

I’m finding new verse and rhyme

To guide my tired soul and heart

Back to where I began to start

To learn how to feel and care

And lay my inner feelings bare

No one place would I dare to stay

A moving target every day

Until one eve a star so bright

Filled my heart and soul with light

The light of such a burning love

An angel come from up above

Touched me…, such gentleness

A soft embrace, a sweet caress

And left a fire inside of me

A flame that could only be

Eternal love………

Sleep is a stranger tonight.  I lay in bed, staring at the ceiling, contemplating the age old question…

Why ?

++++++++++++++

The questions have no answers

The poem has no rhyme

The song has no music

There is no meaning in the words

The story has no ending…

=====

There comes a time when thoughts are too ambiguous,

A time when words seem totally inept, either spoken or written.

Pictures and drawings are useless.

The mind seems an open book, but with blank pages.

A Winter’s Gift   2 comments

Come, walk with me a while

Let’s share some time.

If you favor me a smile

Maybe I’ll offer you a rhyme.

It’s quiet, peaceful here

Let’s sit and take a rest

Forget the rush, think Christmas cheer

Savor this time…., evening’s best.

Forget the chaotic scenes back there.

A moment, I’ll brush the snow from your hair.

Let’s wander farther, the spirit’s in the air,

And the happiness in knowing that you care.

Just a moment away from the Christmas crush

A moment stolen from the hurry and the rush.

Give yourself that gift.  You don’t have to wait.

Do it now….., just in case Santa’s late.

Dance With Me   10 comments

**********************

The ballroom is crowded, chandeliers burning bright

The music played softly, sweetly, this magical night

Hungry eyes meet ‘cross the crowded dance floor

Two hearts beat faster as they both wish for more

*

Dance with me

*

With a smile and a sigh she comes into his arms

He is more than enchanted by her beauteous charms

Twirling and turning, to the music they dance

Each magical moment leading on to romance

.

Out to the veranda they retire for air

Arm in arm, laughing, with ne’er a care

A touch, a caress, then a sweet tender kiss

A moment of forever…,  of romantic bliss

Veranda - Buena Vista - Biloxi

And the dance never ended, going onward in time

Poet and dancer in step and in rhyme

Their love never ended, interrupted a while

Til he once again took her hand with a smile

*

…..and asked…, Dance with me?

No Excuse   3 comments

(Prelude: see last night’s post)

*************

The poetic muse

Had no excuse

For treating me that way

***

I took the time

To give verse and rhyme

A sweet melodic sway

supernaturalfreak[1]

This foul nymph in a fit of pique

Deprived my art’s mistique

Yet another weary day

***

And now dear friends

This stand-off ends

And leaves me now to say

***

I will visit another muse

Who’s never given me excuse

Or left me with naught to say

Though she’s slow and reticent

The time in wait’s always well spent

She’s always been most generous with her artistic gift
