Solitude

Dressed
In your favorite
Shades, I wait ~
… Bolstered
By lone
Ember of hope
Flickering sporadically
Despite our histrionic
Parting ~

Grand passion
Arrived departed
Noisily
Never once
Whimpering
Pathetically ~

Reawakened pangs
Keep hope
Alive and I often feel
Your heart stopping embrace
From behind
Gently nuzzling ~

I turn around and
See your endearing
Grin, lopsided,
Hat askew as always
Twin ebony eyes
Rekindled by love
Smoldering
Messages
True ~

And then the lone
Café au lait
Arrives and I drain
My cup, eye moist
Blind sided
Hope’s ember
Having fallen
Wayside
And woe
Squatting
Inside ~

Reawakened
Snow white love
Brims over
Putting spring back
In leaden steps,
Your selections
In coat and chapeau
On back and head
I beeline once more
To our café
Where we’d
Once met and
Fallen headlong
In love ~

Essence of Being

In my oneness
my beloved
Gives
Company

Ever wedded
To inner flame
Burning bright
Mind takes flightVisible footsteps
Maybe two, four
He is still with me
That I know

I’ve learned
To be alone
In multitudes
Prizing my solitudes

Humbled by grace
Of his presence
Ever coursing
In veins’ ebb, flow

Given to neither rituals
Nor blandishments
I stay connected
In fixated circuitry

In my oneness
my beloved
Gives
Company

Ribbons

~
stray
thoughts
throw
ribbons
from
mind’s ship
alas
if only
I
could
deep
waters
safely
swim
~

Vibrant Eyes’ Grace

Vibrant
Gentle eyes
Bring deadened
Nerves alive

Tingles
Riot inside
Opening pores
Shut wide

Destiny’s bullet
Ridden heart
Inexplicably heals
Self wholly

Vibrant
Gentle eyes
Bring deadened
Nerves alive

Love – disjointed tercets

Love’s fluidity
Channels self into pasts’
Interconnected crevices~

Blue (d) by surfeit love’s
Suffocation, embracing blues
Natural inclination, sublime~

Receptacle and vessel mind
Receiving, outpouring mostly
With conduct becoming ~

Sometimes a good cry, hot tea
And crumpet has to make do
On whiny days, blue~

Life given leeway
Tends to bend both knees
Tensile mind won’t allow it ~

Makeshift (ing) present
Eye upwardly mobile usually
Back paddle on reminisces~

Love’s fluidity
Channels self into pasts’
Interconnected crevices~
