Shadow Symphonies

shadowed symphonies artist unknownAmong the shadowed symphonies
Where music and light
Dance
I spread my wings
Enchanting feathers
In tune
Where darkness plays with light
Intertwining
Flowing
Defining and everlasting
Radiant and boundless
Without imagining or wishing
I am

Prisoner of Words

Love-you-Art mr wallpaper freeThey held each other close
Like a blanket of stars within the sky.
She wanted to tell him of her love
But her words were like prisoners
Held down under her tongue
Unable to escape beyond her lips.

As he released her warm body
His presence faded
Into the cold mist of the evening.
Her words melted and flowed
Down into her heart.
And the only thoughts
That escaped her mind
Was that she loved him a long time ago.

Another Year Behind Us

The Shore

A year closes behind us
Imprints of our bodies no longer exist
The wind carries our words in pockets of clouds
In safe keeping of those who have spoken them.

The soft rain that sprinkled upon our shoulders
The warmth of the radiant sun that shined upon our faces
Are basking in all the colors to which I see and dream.

Where there is something, there is nothing
For this is where I exist
And the only place to capture my memories
Is in the beating sound of my heart.

Celebrating the Publication of Collections of a Sound Mind, Volume 1

Collections of a Sound Mind, Vol 1 CoverI am feeling quite blessed and grateful as I celebrate the publication of my first solo poetry book called “Collections of a Sound Mind, Volume 1.

Many souls have touched my life as I know it.  Some have passed by and taught me lessons along the way.  Many have moved on since then; leaving remnants of shadowed memories.  There are others, though, who have shared each step of this endless mountain that I have climbed and often stumbled upon ~ only to start again as painful or glorious my path has been.

They have encouraged me to move heavy boulders and loved me unconditionally when I didn’t love myself.  They have shown me how to embrace the smallest of sacred moments and to believe that all things are possible even in the darkest of times.

With this, and those words I have yet to find, I dedicate my book in loving memory of my father, my mother, my encouraging soul mate, my inspiring son and all those who have inspired my heart.  Without your unfailing faith, love and confidence while walking with me, I would not have been the kind of person I am today.

May my thoughts resonate a light upon your heart

For we are all miracles in flight…

Vessels of Light

vessels of light

Latex moons rise
Impetus drift as they sleep
Wisps moving skyward
Holding size and their shape.

Sculptured occasions
Ribbons curled for bouquet
Filled with the whispers
Of thoughts that we make.

Discovering limits
Inflate and contract
Bursting beyond
The limits they set.

Shed light in darkness
A gaiety in dance
Bestow with enlightenment
Without being sought.

Affect flight of your thoughts
For these magical creatures
Bid no more than delight.

Edge of a Dream

man women kissing in moon

Intuit cognation on the edge of a dream
Ardent love glowing in the light of moon beams.
Soft cotton candy suspends in delight
Rekindles like stars to the skies in the night.

Stardust and planets swirl Starry Night’s paint
As the man in the moon and his lover acquaint.
Embossed in a shadow, dancing on air
Two heavenly bodies moonstricken in glare.

Adorned in undressing, as symphonies play
Mockingbirds mimic their shadow’s display.
And I with my back towards the warmth of the earth
Gaze in adornment till my eyes closed in search.

My soul slowly spun by the strength of his hands
From it my mind landed softly in chant.
We sought out in mystery with love in our dreams
Where you wake in slumber and I in between.
