Still... I wait

You- are but a dream
existing in the soft whispers
of a gentle breeze...
Still, I wait-
In the place where the 
white light meets the sea-
Where love lingers...
eternally

Poetry of the Heart


Vast as the ocean, depths unknown,
is the heart that loves- beyond its own...

A treasure to impart
Humble and true
The gift of my heart
In bravery to you...

It is the hopeful 
heart of the dreamer,
still waiting for true
love's kiss- who will
shine a light into the
darkest abyss...

Poetry

Whisper your secrets
Into the night
Tell me all
Til' morning's light

For our love 
Is the ocean
Come swim within
Feel my waves break
As the tide rushes in

Lips embrace
Tongues entwine
A stolen moment
Lost in time
For you...
Are a sweet
taboo
I should not
want, yet,
Alas, do...

In the stillness
Kiss me madly
Leave me breathless
I'm yours gladly

Life Musings


Perception 
is reality, 
yet, 
a deception 
within 
itself.
For can one
 ever truly
be aware, 
of worlds 
beyond 
their own,
if  we're
un-willing
to open 
 our eyes, 
to truths
unknown? 
Life is a
continuous cycle,
on the road to
 self-awareness, 
repeated lessons 
of moments 
forever eternal
Striving, we can
only move 
forward
 knowing what 
we know
Learning, ever
learning 
as we go...

Welcome to the Word Bar...


Welcome to the word bar
Where drinks become words
I'll pour you a poem...
So you can be heard
Finer than wine, the
words we will sip
A brandy of thoughts
smooth on our lips
Glasses clink as words
spill forth
In rhyme we will speak-
Oh, but of course...
With stories told in snippets
abound, ever so bold
conversing resounds-
A haiku here, a limerick there
A sonnet maybe?
If you so dare...

Haiku Poems



Wildflower
There among the weeds
Your beauty stands all alone
A promise of life

Thoughts of you...
Gray and purple hues
Paint the landscape anew
Lost in thoughts of you

Rain
The soft tap of rain
Falling upon the window
Soothe my weary soul

Still... I wait
The days are so long
The nights go by too quickly
Still... I wait for you

Hope
Against the current
Into your heart, I will swim
With caution and hope

Follow Your Heart


The heart will always
lead to your chosen path, 
but first, first- you must 
be willing... to read the map
For there are many twists 
and turns along the way,
sometimes, just sometimes,
it may seem- 
The heart led astray, away from
our dreams, but stay the course, 
know what's true, follow your
