tell me

tell me
how the gentle wind touches your skin
how the gold of sun rays pierce your eyes
when you hear the fish slap the river’s water
the waft of morning dew

tell me
how your heart flutters when feeling love
your breath becomes rapid in excitement
soft wet sweat shimmies from you hands
how peace and calm envelops you
at the sight of stars and moon at night

tell me
the soothing of violin strings upon your ears
touched by words of Shelley and Shakespeare
how they resonate into your soul
and as i sing to you a song
a love poem for you, i've written

tell me
how your love for me is true
a reflection of my heart, too
like verdant leaves of Spring
its brilliant color hue
there’s no truer love
than me for you

just enough

i wish just enough
of morsels, having some left  for
he who’s hungry
just enough water to quench my
thirst then to share
warmth enough still to feel the cold
as others do

just enough shelter to rest my head
leaving room for hers on my shoulder,
some anguish to understand sorrow and
enough to feel pain and recalling the absence

enough love to last until tomorrow

behold living

my body recently experienced physical pain
constant throbbing, deep and incessant.,
i breathe in, exhale slowly and it separates
me distantly from  it

now it has subsided, the cause ameliorated
i tarry in my focus and think of those
whose pain never subside and so much greater
than mine, so i breathe for them

souls being connected in a universal spirit
shall be then, but for a moment, the assuage
of this feeling, usurped by a calm and rest,
shared by the link of our souls

i shall amble about amidst life, today
i shall not forget the pain for it will be the cause
of me savoring the tiniest of things, littlest of moments,
cherish all  around me while breezes sing
in my ears and mine eyes behold, living

onto this new day

onto and unto this new day
when first comes my morning’s breath
i shall smile and laugh upon the tangles
and tugs in the face of death

i hear the melodies of my waking friends
the cardinal’s whistle, the melodious wrens
they’ll lift my body from recumbent dreams
to amble out onto Nature’s streams

a 'sol' of warmth,  a breath of soft wind
shall start my waking day, the night on end
naked feet will be tickled by grass and dew
and my spirit brimming with life’s anew

bring all the pain and angst you can muster
for i’ll still dance amidst a daffodil cluster
the song of a robin and a finch
shall lift my spirit in a pinch

come, share with me, embrace the day
for all too soon this will give way
to the moon and stars in night’s abode
but that too is dream filled, so, i am told

a flower's tears

like the flower in Spring
the petals with brilliant colors
on display, the leaves a vibrant green
and loam at its rooted feet
dark, moist from the morning’s dew

she used to be like this
when she’d look my way, would
on occasion seem of fawning  
making me feel like that
flower of Spring

but Autumn comes, some call it Fall
and colors change to crimson and
russet, although still brilliant in their
aesthetic way, there's a change of their 
colors now taking place, a different
beauty in their display

she sees me now in my Autumn attire 
though Spring still is her favorite color
she looks no longer at me the way she used
to but at another flower whose colors of Spring
now catch her eyes

i am that flower, a sentient being, a human
touch is of my heart when my Autumn
colors now displayed and you look away
my petals droop, my leaves fall to my side, 
the heaviness of falling dew, are my tears for you

my soul speaks

my walk today traversed a hillside
through a field of wisteria embracing
a patch of yellow snapdragons and lily of
the valley white bells while busy yellow jackets
and bumble bees buzz, a pollinating dance 

conscious and slow with every step
cognizant of this moment listening to
the whispers of the day noticing its
breath as it swirls and sways a field
of wild-flowers like waves at sea

i listen to the voice of my soul speak
as i search to find my ‘within’
bringing my spirit to a brink
grasping my heart with a calming
asking to be witness to peace

the tales of my soul does tell of pain
hovering over sadness and disarray
while wishing the music of love to play
awaiting trials and tribulations to allay

knowing all this to be mundane that
the transcendent spirit will soon discard
severing the tethers and letting the vibrations
to play in sync and rhythm with the
Universe where together they, too,
shall dance

joy of life and sleep

that waft of lavender or soft musk,
the sparkle of the dew on grass in
the morning and the lust my heart
and soul doth feel the joy of waking
to life’s ebullient smile

warm golden yellow rises and white cottons
soar along the azure powdered face
shimmering off the mirror ocean blue,
a spectacle bringing life to the jumping
dolphin and spattering of fish while seagulls
call and the osprey talons fill

doth my day begins of Summer’s Spring
while cool wet sand invades the space
between my toes, the southwest winds
blow capturing underneath my eagle wings
so that i may fly amidst the day where
i shall play

from dawn to dusk my soul shall dance
give way to the spirit of the universe
of how things should be where chaos
intermingles with harmony as opposites
and the yin yang intertwines as one

a glitter of stars shall prick the black of night
and tease the moon to smile while the roaring
vocals from white nail rolling fingers of the sea
shall sooth my dreary eyes to close and i will
dream the dreams where my soul shall soon
reap a joy of with souls in that universal sleep
