Starlight

Dream of light – photo by gfs
The rising sign speaks of foundations
where the sun’s spirit entered
and the light of the moon reflecting
who we’ve become in its shadows

let each of us answer the call
summoned by Angels heard on high
above the trials and trails we wander
along this river we call the life

no star will ever make or break
or find in time forgotten faith
stories here we may believe
outside the truth we’ve left behind

starlight ours to know the answer
love has come to hold our hand
know the light within our eyes
was always ours we’ve come to find

Tears in the Rain

How swift are the tides
rolling on shores
with wind weaving cattails
into sand dune dreams

Moonlight rises within the waves
having only the stars to decorate her love
Sparkles her crown in the indigo blue
Silver light shadows fall to the earth

Leaving as red sunlight wakes
stealing the dark
Melting the dewdrops into the day
like tears in the rain

Made to surrender
all the heart’s seasons unfold
witness to heaven falling to earth
waiting to waken her hand to behold

City of Lights

~ For Doug in memory of his beloved Dorothy ~

Somewhere in time
is the place where our love
is written in pages unending

To turn in my mind
as real as the sunrise
your heart painting colors in me

Far from the morning
we’re dreaming together
walking in rhythm and rhyme

I still feel the Seine
keeping step with our hearts
reflecting her waves in your eyes

As the flowers all blush
in city of lights
while Angels gather amazed

To gaze at two lovers
one starry night
lost in a moment forever

Yes words can fill pages
tho’ never enough
to tell all the stories of us

Still always our stories
of love will surround me
with whispers felt soft in my ear

circles of love

“Fragile” – Assateague State Park, MD – photo by gfs

lost in flight
some storm tossed bird
finding reasons
to return to
the air
how to hold on
to the unseen
feels the ether
guides on the wind
one sacred place
still to call home
folding her wings
in the night
waiting again to lift
what remains
of forever finding love

Eclipse of the Moon

Poipu, Kauai Lunar Eclipse

a memory of being
present
walking
in all the times
known to us
~ hidden
in the discontent
and all the chatter
surrounding the coming
and going from places
dreamed or planned
or happening to be
such are the days
where flowers bloom
and moonlit nights
where love shines
tides ebb and flow
heedless of our whims
