Successfully Green

It drives you

Moving upward

And onward

Fueling your energy

With enlightening ideas

On greatness

As you grow

And grow

Until the day

Your high spirits are so large

You can’t fit in your wallet

And you move onward

And outward.

Still [Life]

Canvas

Freshly stretched

And never used

That smells of paper

Feels like silk

And tastes like new beginnings

Until you pick up your brush.

 

Inspiration moves you

Stroke by stroke

As you create a masterpiece

Day by day

Until passion dwindles-

Then you’ll wait

Until it strikes

And you’ll overcome.

 

The end result

Will be a painting

Of insurmountable beauty

Created by the still life moments

That you captured in your mind

Heart and brush

Forever preserved in paint

For all to see and admire.

Romance (A Bedroom Story)

In  love,

Sames give

Gaining height.

 

Motionless

(Forgetful)

Yearn his glance here-

I’m timid

Under his firm eyes.

 

Newly unearthed, unclothed,

The first touch

Of my sleeping dreams

Woke fate.

 

So beautiful it made me weep

Vainly, I cried.

 

Lifting mountains

Creating valleys-

Joy!

He Praised the moon

As I sang with desire.

 

Joy.

Joy so pure

Twilight would rejoice

In our shadows.

 

Keen.

Keen beyond conceiving

Strictly

There he stood,

My dream.

 

Flesh was blood-

A mile uphill,

And I could only smile.

With a gasp.

 

Scorning

Made me move through his anger.

Motions:

Forward

Backward

Side by side.

 

Arms extended humbly

Between foe and friend,

Between the foolish and the wise,

Immeasurable impatience…

Hold me closer.

 

Flames

Caused my will to climb

naked, bare, hungry

shoulders pulled against the dark.

 

Sorrow:

Look,

You’re still a foe.

 

Let us join blood and flesh.

Imagination-

A drug…

Giving a heart,

A mind.

 

Though dull, you taste bright

Though bitter, you are sweet.

 

Truth-

I say-

Love his soul!

Love him whole.

Growing Older

A child’s mind cracked open wide

For learning and growing

Walking all alone, their own stride

With confidence showing.

 

But soon they will grow much too big

And forget their own self.

They will have to search hard and dig,

Wiping dust off the shelf.

 

They will look back with a smile

On all the things they learned-

How could they forget? A long while…

My, how the tables turned!

Sing Me A Song

Chirping perching sing me  song

Birds singing through the dusk and dawn

Show them singing is never wrong

Chirping! Perching! … Sing me a song!

Just keep on singing all day long

‘Til beauty has overcome brawn

Chirping… Perching… Sing me a song

Birds, singing through the dusk… and dawn.

Favorite alcoholic drink: Frozen Raspberry Margarita.

Giving presents is nice because you get to spend time thinking about the person and what you like. It’s almost like a test of how well you know them.
Favorite cities: Anywhere in California. Or anywhere with a beach.
