wish upon the birds…

moon encrusted evening, walking among the fields
of daisies, birds circling in air, like thoughts
running through

veins,
fare and,
attention
made
bare

I dream of other lands, while grounded in the past,
and wish upon the birds, their beauty, at
times

misunderstood…

slowly, I crane toward the sky, their look is a
glimpse of magnificence, we all
should

take into
account, and
be proud of the beauty
throughout

the moments given, each one is sacred, bestowed
upon us with a love that is
thrilling
and

delightful, just like the pink hues look, as they
swallow my past, and take me towards
the present moment

at
last
it is
a stark
contrast…

In response to the WDYS #116 Prompt from Keep it Alive, by Sadje.

I gently wish upon a star, Published at MasticadoresIndia

I am excited to share my poem, I gently wish upon a star, which is now available at MasticadoresIndia. Though this is my last poem of the year with MasticadoresIndia, I am very excited about being a regular monthly contributor next year. Thank you again to Terveen Gill, and the entire team at MasticadoresIndia for publishing this piece, and for their continued support.

I gently wish upon a star

heartaches, reminding me of earthquakes,
experienced in between the lines,
moving past mistakes

of a life, this life, lived in moments unsure,
and in others, grown taller
than the applewood trees flowers…

I would be honored if you would go here and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!

love blossoms like an apple tree…

fingers outstretched through space, and time, deft clutch,
feeling so much, you were here,
now gone, yet the senses
still
tickle
with your touch

burning
with desire, loving from within, learning more about
the nature of reality
seen in your
skin

beauty holds me hard, while love blossoms like an
apple tree…heart, absorbing the
shards
and

giving me more moments, than the sun provides
in all of its bestowments
of
glory

a
story
of healing with the warmth kindled from years of patience,
now living, loving, and basking
in
the presence
of your radiance…

beauty doth reside in the heart… Published at MasticadoresUSA

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, beauty doth reside in the heart… is now available at MasticadoresUSA. A big thank you to, Gabriela Marie Milton, and the team at MasticadoresUSA for their continued support, and for publishing this piece.

beauty doth reside in the heart…

I sit atop a tree, taking in the beauty seen,
beneath the forest floor, and
above the skyline,
amber tossed

less
remorse(d)

once felt…

I would be honored if you would go here and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!
