Delirium

 

Image result for pictures of ecstasy in love

I watch you from within
The heart of the possibilities ~
Floating in a sea of choices ~
Dizzy with anticipation ~

I haven’t felt this giddy
In so long I can’t remember ~
It’s delicious and I’d like to
Stay here all the time ~

I don’t know if it’s love
Or just infatuation ~
It could be a case of
Premature spring fever ~

But if this buzzy
Discombobulated state
I’m in is what I think ~
Then bring it on ~
I promise I’ll have no regrets ~

My passions have dissolved
My self-control ~
And I have waited for
This moment all my life ~

Quiet Reflection

Image result for pictures of old woman seeing young woman in mirror

The shimmering frosty silence ~
Is music to my ears ~
The muted and infrequent
Sounds of traffic ~ seem
Long ago and far away ~
As you are ~

I can’t believe so many years
Have come and gone ~
Moments become decades
In the beating of a heart ~
And even now the memory
Of the love we made still
Takes my breath away ~

And you have been gone
So long now ~
I count the time and still
Can’t quite believe ~
Until I look into the mirror ~
And see the me I
Have become ~

I’ve changed so much ~
I’m not sure that you’ll know me
When we meet once more ~
But I will know you ~
All young and beautiful and
Made of purest light ~

I pray love
You will remember me ~

Deep Field of Dreams

My spirit speaks
The silent Universal
Language of love
And yearning

While

Trapped as surely
As any goldfish
In its tiny bowl
I recognize the irony

And the joy of
Beholding all the wonders
Hubble has to offer
In glorious living color

Along with the knowing
I will not last the tens
Of scores of years
Required to reach them

 

(Above image: The new version of Hubble’s deep image. In dark grey you can see the new light that has been found around the galaxies in this field. That light corresponds to the brightness of more than one hundred billion suns.

The Final Act

space fantasy. star

I’ve heard it said that ~
In the end ~ all death is suicide ~
I didn’t understand then ~
But now perhaps
I begin to comprehend ~

How the pull of where one is ~
Can grow less potent than
The urgent call of where
One wants to be ~
How curiosity can beckon ~

This was never meant
To be forever ~
The spirit cannot be contained
Within this fragile flesh ~
For more than our
Brief moment in the
Flow of time ~

I’m looking forward
to the big adventure ~
Though I confess to
Trepidation ~ when it
Comes to passing
Through the door ~

I guess I’ll see ~

Fair Warning

romantic-boyfriend-girlfriend-holding-hands-together-images-for-whatsapp-profile-picture-bf-gf-romantic-couple-pics-images-profile-picture-for-whatsapp-9I am a simple soul ~
I take my pleasures
Where I find them ~
And while it’s true
That I may linger ~
Where passion leads me ~
I will not tarry longer
Than a day or so ~

So do not count on me ~
Don’t let me be the one
You build your hopes on ~
I can’t be what you want
Your dream of love to be ~
There is a restlessness
Inside ~ that moves me onward
Toward my destiny ~

Perhaps I simply fool myself ~
Ashamed of my inconstant heart ~
But either way I am a guarantee
Of heartache I would spare you ~

So I will leave you here untouched ~
Or I will love you and move on ~
You know I want you
But the choice is yours ~
And you must take the chance ~

If I can change for you I will ~

Do I Know You?

(In the days of her youth)Related image

She fascinates me ~
My fellow traveler ~
With lines carved
Deep into her face ~
In shapes reminding me
Of ancient paintings ~
On the walls of caves ~

Her wild white mane ~
Held off her face by
Large dark pins ~
Her face in profile ~
Make me think of
Herds of bison ~ and
Deerskin moccasins ~

She is a big woman ~
Tall and sturdy ~
And her posture
Gives the lie ~
To her weathered skin
And snow-white hair ~

She turns her head
And our eyes meet ~
Across the bus’s
Narrow aisle ~
I see she feels it too ~
That sudden sense
Of recognition ~

Then she smiles and
Pulls the cord ~
And in moments
She is gone ~
I feel bereft ~
As though I missed
My cue ~ and it
Will never come
Again ~

I sit and ponder ~
What does it mean ~
For every act has
Meaning ~
And every act has
Consequences too ~

The delicate balance
Of my life ~
Has been disturbed ~
And I don’t
Know why ~

How Shall I Answer

Image result for pictures of clouds covering a night sky

I watch the clouds knit themselves together ~
Covering over the tattered edges of the sky ~
And filling in the dark blue holes
In the evolving cloudscape of the night ~

The trees fling their red and golden leaves
Into the maelstrom of the wild and windy air ~
Shattering the gorgeous living tapestry of autumn
And baring their limbs to the teeth of winter ~

My Native American ancestors lived by the bounty
Of the living earth beneath their feet ~
And the phases of the moon and the sun and
The seasons ~ guided their moccasined steps ~

Though I live in a city once more ~
Twenty minutes from my door the forest beckons ~
And I feel the tethers loosening as the
Wild things whisper my name deep in the night ~

As the moon rises and the trees toss
Their limbs in restless ecstasy ~ enthralled
By the power and the beauty of the windy dark ~
I feel a response from deep within which will not be denied ~
