Halcyon

Sometimes we dance

rhythmic raindrops on a brandy sea

transforming to mythical birds

scattering  unrest into the minds of  mortals,

translucent lies to naive lovers keen on

intoxicated nights and breathless  anticipation.

Venturing near the  sharp edge of consequence,

if not for the drama, we couldn’t care less.

Paradise

The ocean rushes in dropping  treasures

on the shore or pulls them back beneath it’s

frothy skirt.

Seagulls drop from sun rays,

glimmering angles dipping, diving,

fading  shadows on the shore.

Pearly dunes and Speckled cliffs coexist

with sea weed and stacked abalone scoured

clean by a constant tide.

Sunsets of crimson hues reflect on ancient palms

lined with Macaw and lime green parrots that toss

their song into the breeze.

Nectar fills the leaves of banana trees where  bird of

paradise sip honey in the mist.

St. Thomas, Virgin Islands

Rain forest

the art of words

With the ardor of a child

wade in the pool of emotion.

Soak in the wonder of quiet love

knowing in silence we forget.

Choose   cautiously as you

might pluck a rose when at

the mercy of thorns.

Be gentle,   lest like stones they

fall one upon the other  where

even a breath has weight.

Stacked like silver coins,

in  grasping we win or lose.

sea monster

Laid  back in my torrid afternoon

there’s a briny breeze on my coral tongue

that stings my nostrils when I breathe.

The glare of sun off the slick horizon

on that insatiable ocean of desire,

silhouettes of myself move quietly,

sea monsters  waiting  to devour me,

spit me on the shore of fantasy.

My eyes are drunk with visions

Lovely poetry from Maxima. Comments are closed here, please see the original.

The rain washes away traces of steepness
nights when my thoughts are filled with you.
In my dreams,
my eyes are drunk with visions
and I a slave of your smile,
because in them I find a deity,
a soul filled with love for me and
I love you, my little princess.
Be what you are my princess,
I will love you when you are happy or sad.
You know that too well,
my little star,
I make a wish and I tell you
I want to love you through the night,
and that you want me too brings joy
to my life and I must smile and be happy,
and reassert my desire like
a man who dreams
among stars.
Spoiled.
I will take my chances with your heart,
and there I will find peace and satisfaction.
I do not believe that love is dying.
This…

just before drowning

I am in Paris,

I think  I am dreaming.

It is before dawn and

a man waits beneath a

street light.

A melancholy smile

that does not reach

his  eyes passes

through  us.

I am the anonymous

memory of a red rose.

He is between lovers,

roaming the city streets at night,

sinking into eyes  like mine,

deep as the river Seine,

the kind one might see

just before drowning.
