Etched in the illusion of time

Silken stir,
Lissome wings,
A heart laced with stardust evermore-
Tell me, graceful butterfly
The secrets
That are woven through your soul.
Ev'ry time
Her tiny body quivers,
'Tis true poetry in motion.
Articulated music that is so soundless,
Like the nighttime air
'Pon the lips of sleeping children,
Is her wings beating 'gainst a summer's breeze.
Mid-springtime tendencies
Embraced by skillfully silent feet,
As they land
Along the wistfully weeping wild daisy flow'r-
White petals chastised into cream-like hues,
Too pristine for her majesty, the sun.
And even when morning dawns,
I listen to her stifled song
Of satin wings and velvet dreams...
Just pondering
How she can fly away,
Even with her dew-laden thoughts
Still lingering in the fields.



For saints have hands that pilgrims' hands do touch,
And palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss.--"Romeo and Juliet"

this was an enjoyable read

I feel rain pouring down. I wait to rot away,
Live again, here forever, the spiral never ends.   Godsmack

    Has held me in the same embrace~

the spirit rejoices over what it has left.
