When Love Becomes More

When love becomes more than you expected
Days brighten
Clouds seem full of life and faces
Senses heighten
Clarity returns to places you thought had died
Your world shines again

Love Beyond


Lovers fly on gilded wings
Lighting up the sky
There exists amazing sights
Missed by people passing by

A pause, a flare, so bright my eyes unseen
Feel for your touch
Where your skin has been
And mine now follows

Daring to break tradition
Threatening history in its wake
Forcing new pathways open
As I stretch for you

You pause
I flare
We touch

Moving forward unseen

Silent wings take flight

Missing You


Hot vibrant sun now pours the sand,
Fighting waves that pound the shore,
While wild eyed sky expands the line,
Stretching wide to countless crore.

There ice cold snow continues falling,
Making mountains climb their heights,
Skiers fight to take the challenge,
Scoring land pristine and white.

Flying in my hot air balloon,
Sunrise falling from above,
Feeling only one thing missing,
You, in my embrace, my love.

Entombed Free Forever


Unending side by side,
Encased in stony tomb,
A sight for folks to gaze upon,
Gripped forever in death’s womb.

Hands clasped now together,
As in life we held on tight,
Wondering future maybes,
In silent breezes of the night.

Buried are our bodies
In this dark, dank, musty place,
But our love goes on forever,
In the Universal space.

No stone to turn and bind us,
No dark to cover light,
Freedom through the galaxies,
Souls fleeing in full flight.

A Love to Find You

my love will find you - burning paper

There is a torrid place where madness dwells,
Somewhere between bright heavens and dark hells,
Where wondering souls their tortured selves meet,
And hollowed-out-beings smile, wave and greet.

In this dried out twilight of no return,
I’ll hunt for you though the blasted fires burn,
Bring you back with deepest love from my soul,
Hold you tight, share a new way to go.

Believe in yourself, your feeling is right,
Hold onto your soul with all of your might,
When shadows come creeping into your mind,
Dispel them with thoughts of most loving kind.

When madness spreads then the world will all see
The smallest of gaps between you and me.

English Haiku – #3 Time and Space


Time, space, suspended
Movement racked, straining, puce faced
Energy restrained

Your outer shell breaks
Dimensions flood rapidly
Time and space released
