Two Bluebirds Flew

As gallant winds of wild, command among the sky. Dancing through the blades, two bluebirds soar to fly.   In sunlight, so does ruffle, gentle wings of feather. On wisp of floating cloud, they flutter, happy together.   With music soft in whistle; their chorus speaks rejoice. Sounding true affection, and love within their voice. […]

Dream Again

Upon the crease of oak, knots and kinks entwine. Rustic lock, held this chest, but opened now does find. Dreams of all assortments; ambitions towering high. Fantasies in make belief; no boundaries to comply. In rhythm senses thrust, with breaths of merry excite. Ensnarling, strike the colours, painting thoughts in bright. Immeasurable rule wishes, oh […]

My Sweetest Valentine

No rose deep in red, could envisage this love. Mere trinkets of gifts, could shower, not enough. Precious dearest treasure, in capture, hold this heart. Of storms, we did weather; together, never part. Oh sensual enchantress, allure does your taste. Indulgence in no mercy; take grip upon this waist. Like velvet, you do tease, charming […]

The Phoenix Who Remained

These ashes of deceit, swill in poisoned smog. Mocking dying flame, does guzzle sneering fog. Silence seethes eerie; upon the fallen sword. Whispers of betrayal, strike their chilling chord. Forsaken ghosts of shadow, sense the scratching claw. With ruffle of silk feathers, treads creature, in this flaw. Amongst the bones of falsity, in shards of […]

Swansong February

Woodlands of nocturnal; abode for slumbers dwell. Veiled airs, crisp with ice, taint frozen with their smell.   Oppression of stark trees, in hardship, they persist. Robbed of blossoms dignity, but surrender, they’ll resist.   Prolonged, the war of skies, by threat of sombre shades. Beneath clouds hailing stone, does fall the glacier’s blade.   […]

Flowers of Message

Those meadows of eternal, in blossom, sing their song. With message of each flower, may peace descend upon.   Oh tulips coloured vibrant; devotion, hear them speak. Treasuring that perfect love, our hearts will always keep.   With orchids glorious beauty; in thoughtfulness, they care. Their tribute to your nature, for the kindness you did […]

Imagination

Raining purple skies, drop stars, red in bolt. Above rebellious rivers; where backwards fish revolt.   Valleys boast in tongue, as forests dress with pride. Soldiered is the march, of robins swooning by.   Spinning leafs do swirl, kissing violent gales. Riding on blue clouds; chasing wagging tails.   Nature sings as ruler; worms wear […]

Christmas Stars

Festive fever sparkles, shimmering in fine air. Pavements hum with life; dancing free of care.   Trees dressed in pride; decorative by each leaf. Glinting in white light; on eye, they shall please.   Goodwill oozing cheer; tidings to be sweet. Magic filling rooms; of Christmas it shall speak.   Presents are heartfelt; gave by […]

Afternoons in Winter

Precious are the hours, leading winters dusk. Billow does the scent; winds of tainted musk.   Disbelieving sky; shades form their palette. Tender subtle pinks, chased by grey inhabit.   Rattle does stray leaves; bare are bones of flesh. Ghostly in reminder, spring seen them fresh.   Clouds peep with sight, releasing rays of blue. […]
