A Christmas Wish

What is yours....

Cup Of Gin, Bombay

An old broken poet, he has a hungry eye for the darkening clouds coming his way with pen and ink, he whittled a thirst for a cup of gin, Bombay   The gin was bitter, it burned his tongue but the swill made his mind full of song and with a well of ink, he flung a verse for a cup of gin, Bombay Rolling dice in a fast lane called life   he wrote it dark into the dusk of erotic mimes in...Read On

Time and Space

For my darlings Annie and Mel

Across the tides and the space in different zones of time we lie separate and yet are ONE.   How can that be? Are time and space but concepts that love can conquer?   They can hold us captive in moral chains but our hearts reach out beyond them in love.   Love knows no boundaries when hearts are one as ours are, three making one together.   So, though dawn may break ...Read On

Falling In Love

For Pixie and Mel

Eyes lock A thrown switch Magnetic flows Drawn to you   Stepping out Over cynical cliffs A leap of faith Potentially us   We do click That seatbelt sound Falling safely Protecting us   Soft splashdown In love's sea Fatalism banished I'm loved by you    ...Read On

Redeemed by love

Love saves

To fall, once, and for all? Exiled from Eden and condemned by mine own conscience.   And so lost. Willing the good, but not knowing how. Lost in the dark.   Yet there is one spark. One light. Can it be? Hope could not be so bold.   Yet your love is. It reaches me even through my darkness your light finds a way.   In the warm glow of your love my brokenness is mending ...Read On

World Of Unicorns

With tomes of poetry and words Between lines of gossamer threads In a world of unicorns and puppy dogs   To be read when loneliness prevails   As earth-tones turn to autumn Between lines of gossamer threads   And leaves of umber scatter Neath God's rainbow ladder In a world of unicorns and puppy dogs    ...Read On

Music on the piano

Quietly sitting there, listening. I can here the notes on the piano playing.   A heart aching song you play with a heavy heart. Passion so sweet it was becoming art.   Such simple keys but it means so much. Your voice echoes through the night giving it a wonderful touch.   I can almost hear a cry in your sound. But not even your tears can choke your voice down.   You play like...Read On

Night's high cliff

For my love

The sea is calm tonight, and the moonlight ripples with the tide, as the night engulfs us. We sleep, cuddled and warm.   The storms of the day are passed, the dark welcomes us to her arms, your heart beats next to mine, and we two are as one.   No longer on the cliffs, no more the far horizon, just you and I here, and love to surround us.   With the morning will come a new...Read On

Don't Call Me Beautiful

Don't call me beautiful, it's too cliche.  Don't let words lose their meaning, by overusing.  (DNA comes from my parents.) Please don't see me in such a small capacity.  I am brilliant and bold and equally soft.  Don't call me beautiful even if it's true.  Feel my spirit, touch my aura, love my mind.  I'm not the kind of person to look into a mirror twenty times. Feel the power in...Read On

Take A Little Flight With Me

In dreams of yesterday's psalms A crucifix stood at the apse, In shadows divine. Did your baptismal awakening lapse? Do you remember, last September? When you were but a mortal in the flesh Never giving thought to the perpetual twilight, Before the lord of darkness, whispered your name. Take a little flight, take a little flight with me, Night wings are but a coat of ebony, So take a...Read On

Waiting

Waiting for you, at our river spot. Under the wintery moon, to the hoots of snow owls. Stars so bright, to guide my way. Down to our special place, where I stole my first kiss. My heart burns hot, to touch you. And hold you tight, just once more. My lips turning blue, as ice forms. Wading in deeper, not waiting. Calling your name.                  ...Read On

Liverpool Lullaby

Written for my dear friend..

Gabby my sweet darling girl Your dreams they've all been shattered Told you cannot love the one The one that really mattered   You moved away to Liverpool And took your love away You took your ‘Judy’ with you The one that you call Ray   Two loving souls that live as one I know that you’re ‘made up’ You’ve made a life together So drink from life’s sweet cup   I know your...Read On

Three in One

Three are One: for Annie and Mel

Only perfect love could make three become one and replace jealousy with the generosity that true love brings.   Love is not love if it shuts down and fails to grow in response to love and its generous extravagances.   In so loving, I am yours, and yours, while you are mine as I become more me.   And so as with another mystery, Three become one, as One remains Three   And I am,...Read On

The Lovely Mrs. L at Christmas

... In which I celebrate my wife

  The beauty of Christmas is in her eyes, Sparkling and twinkling and saucer-sized. The love of Christmas is in her heart, Laughing and giggling with kind remarks. The joy of people, on this special day, Who honor the Savior and His true Way, Warming hearts of man, woman, and child, All grievances reconciled. Step up, young men! Be strong in your Faith! 'Tis the Creator who put Christmas...Read On

I fell in love with you

For Annie and Mel

I was scared of my own emotions, and that falling in love would make me blue, But your love and strength captured me, And I am yours and want to be, And I’m glad that I fell in love with you.   Of all the girls that you could love Happily, you chose to put me above Ones more beautiful than I could be, And so I am yours, and we are three, which is how it was meant to be.   Though I...Read On

I, Vampire

Up the lattice and down the stairs my Scarlet awaits midnight kisses, as she sleeps beneath satin sheets, until waking to an eternal dusk.   I Vampire, Lord willing me my thirst, in shadow of the pale moonlight as an ensemble of cellos bow, strings of resin snow.   Touching your warm breasts with my lips of cold magenta, a frozen December, my love, as your eyes fear not me.   Come fly with...Read On

Sunrise

for my love

My sun rises in the West, it is there that my love dwells, and my heart goes to her, as the birds fly south.   Her warmth paints my heart pink, like the early dawning sun, and I reach out to touch, knowing only that she loves me.   In the end that’s all we have, for words slip and slide, but in her arms I am warm, and wait the eventide.    ...Read On

The seasons of love

For Melody and Pixie

The days and seasons cycle rhythmically Patterns determined at time’s first dawn The tapestry of hearts wasn’t then written in stone Its left to us weavers to spin love’s silky threads   As you two weaved the first stiches of love The golden summer warmed your spinning fingers Yet I worked on our pattern in winter’s gloomy light That your stiches matched mine heated my heart   ...Read On

Longing

For my love

Across night’s vast array ocean my heart rests with you, but swelling like the tide looks to crash into the shore.   There your arms wait for me, until like some castaway from the wreckage of sleep’s debris, I emerge.   Enfold me then, on our reunion  shore, where wife with wife the jacaranda tree blooms and tears are no more....Read On

Only the good die young

At the age of nine, lying in the children's ward. Rheumatic fever, burning though me. Nuns and Doctors come and go, tending a full ward of eight boys. Across from me lay a new boy, no more than five years old. Sadly for he had survived, his family fire. All day long crying between moans, begging for his mother. Nuns being quiet but still they knew, he would be with his...Read On

Our Time Will Not Run Out

Is Time slip, sliding away

The concept we invented  Within the human mind The passage of our lives Is Time for everyone  It seems that Time is warping  Keeps warping as we age It bends Contorts  To make us lose The fabric of our days The fabric  The material  From which our life is made Remembrance of the magic of traveling down new lanes New pathways  Explorations New vistas we have viewed Among them are...Read On

No Time For Spirits

Inviting you in to my spiritual wake As a censer shakes of omens and sins Obsessed by silence of nocturnal clock   Bound by iniquities of my pen and ink   Poetically conceived in my metamorphosis And genus of the blue-wing dragonfly Having no time for spirits and old men    ...Read On

Count My Blessings

Here we are once again I thought I’d let it go, but then It’s Christmas time on Storiesspace And so many characters hang around this place.   Maggierascal keeps rowing the boat While Gav does his best to keep us afloat Sherzahd is back, though her time is sparse And Ariesdragon still thinks I’m an arse.   Fuzzy retired and still writes tiny tomes While Molly edits all his work...Read On

Your Christmas Gift To Me

This night I write, Dear Santa Claus, Please do this for me, just because I love my fellow man this year, I see, A little bit more than presents for me.   Don’t bring me presents for Christmas this year, Don’t bring me kindness or bundles of cheer, Give all my gifts to those in need, And let your gift to me be a good deed.   Take all my sweaters to ol’ Good Will, Take all the toys...Read On
