textures of love

Kirlian Rose

feeling the heart
laughter at dawn
touch under cover
next to the life
where lovers belong

breath on the skin
breathe in the life
souls seek to unravel
their dreams
in the night

wholeness imagined
into the being
longing fulfilled
ecstasy quaking
essence is seething

springs ever flowing
cleansing the earth
waters of life
the dream everlasting
becoming through birth.

New Day

IMG_0566_001

As wind across the sands of time
Thought is blending endlessly
Past and present fold into
The future we have come to see

Along this distant shore of earth
A corner of the sky revealed
Was chosen long before we new
The measures of our fate were sealed

In long forgotten destiny
Attachments made in days before
Our monuments were risen from
The ashes of forevermore

This question of eternal grace
Abandonment allowing will
To conquer all the worlds outside
By passions rising to fulfill

The breathing out of love divine
Sparks the fires reasoning
Should know itself as landscapes in
The colors each new day will bring

unwound

time is a fault
as space
and distance
from home
from love

who declared
its reason
for being
and who
turned back
the clock

where you were born
matters in kind
and in if you mind
there will
come a time

someone decides
in passing (time)
the past once was
the future will be
and now
just now
I am
forever …

Seasons of Love

IMG_1272

To my wife on our 15th Anniversary -

Time is just another way
The heart can understand
That every beat it rests between
Could never have been planned
As pages of our romance turned
Are written in the story of
The dreams we’ve seen and ponder still
Become the seasons of our love …

the voice of nature
songs on the wind
whispering pines
Aspens quaking
as an Autumn sun
sets …

does she know
time as measure
what wheel work
fashions the seasons
for our pleasure

waves on beaches
shifting sands to roam
feet will ever wander
places never known

shores sailed by
looking for passages
to the heart
as the flowers
fragrance fades
and the Monarch
leaves
for home …

How could we know
Ever dream
of giving
Our last
Best measure
of devotion
To a cause
What dream
Can give up love
Leaving tears
and tears in the fabric
of life

Destiny calling
Before we even knew
What part we had played
That we were here
to witness
Having hands to hold
Lives to unfold
Stranger shadows
becoming our own
Burned forever
in the fire
of our minds

Dust to dust
Shall be
Each breath
Each day
Remains and reminds
There’s a hole
In the sky
Where heroes lie
as Angels fly
and lost lovers lie
in the darkness
waiting for dawn
