warmth (Remove filter)
Grey winter chills me, stops me, binds me
Like ice sliding into my body..freezing my soul
Thoughts frozen can’t move me
Lifeless limbs burning with cold
A stillness that isn’t calm
A coldness that does me harm
Restricts my life’s horizon
Only my heart with the heat to fire my mind
A heart still beating for you
A never dying ember of love
Let’s live where the sun a...

Dawn the rising glint of light
The background whoosh of an electric float
The cheery clink of bottles
Returning from where darkness rules
Empty of energy but full of joy
Stop now and find that view
View from a hill I know so well
Then nature’s volume slowly turned up
My breath easing into peace
Many such dawns to open my days
Find the spot, find the view, find the p...

like a dipped oak
an aegis of honey-words
folded in layers
carefully made gifts
(tho hastily wrapped)
best taken while still soft
like candied ginger pressed
between lips parted in awe
the steam of kitchens and
the drawing of breath
like a waxen wood countertop

Sitting in the sun
Soaking up the warmth
Staring out into the distance
Hoping that something will change
Every time I’m in the light
With the rustle of leaves
And birds flying by
Whistling to their mates
Signaling Spring is here
Everything finally feels right

Let's take a moment to reminisce.
Look into my eyes and speak the words you have within,
Express yourself to your deepest core,
Speak until you feel you have no more words...
Let me know how you feel.
My heart skips a beat,
Before it begins a rhythmic dance,
As I gaze into your eyes,
Into your soul,
With so much love it aches.
I am home whenever I am with ...

Instead of your eyes, I see only warmth,
I feel only heat from the heart that you hold.
Inside those great pools of a deep, liquid hearth,
My own eyes seek shelter from the cruel in the world.
Instead of your lips, I see only my future,
All the stories ready to spill from your mouth, they unravel.
There it holds the embers of a pink, raging fire,
There it holds me, hypnot...

The razor cold breeze whipped at the small child.
For the tall pines grew below the cliff—no help--
And offered their apologies in their own way,
Filling the air with their sharp centric scent
And swaying like an ocean of green in the wind.
But, that day, the boy could not tell trees from tears,
And he could not smell aught but what he tasted:
Just copper and sa...

A Step Towards Summer
I look into the mirror’s depthless space,
at what is standing in the shadows cast
by light dimming swift with each day amassed
and passing by me, at a startling pace.
I sprint to catch the future in a chase
that takes me on a journey to the past
and makes me wish each moment used will last
until the day they put me in my case.

Raindrops trickle on the forest's brow
Forming transparent puddles,
That reflect your querying face
And catches the dream of a moment.
Storm cells brew on the radar,
Fearful in their presence as they pass
Life on the brink of forever's portals
Until thunder morphs into cuddles .
In the streams your form takes shape,
Eyes that gaze with hope and love
