lavender lines

tumbleweeds thread the head of a pin

while the size of our love’s always been
reminiscent of the dreams laden in your hands

like the flavor of morning dew
know that I’ve always seen you…

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

cherry blossoms

grapes grow in the sky
while I rely upon the love living

inside
the blossoming cherry trees

they always seem so deliciously vibrant
and in touch with you and me

a love that’s lasted centuries
fills me with a smile, a glee

handed to me, you see?

a sunny afternoon, sitting among the flower beds

I digress, and dress in roses,
my best

laid suit
by the sun’s eyes, disguised

as I learn of the stars in your heart

while a love to me, at last
they impart

the sweetest nectar

with the wind at my back
I relax

and
sit inside all the glory before me

the blooming flowers
and the resplendent arches on the trees
as they hang with the most delicious…

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

until the sun, Published at MasticadoresUSA

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, until the sun, is now available at MasticadoresUSA. Thank you to Gabriela Marie Milton, and the team at MasticadoresUSA for their continued support, and for publishing this piece.

until the sun

I stand in line to buy lemons and limes
while reminiscing on the
times

enthralled and divined
while feelings keep coming up

I’ve tried to stop…

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

butterfly sensations

stones fall from my eyes
holding my breath, I try

to understand the fields of sorrow
before me

while the image of you lingers in the streams
of tumbleweed

we’ve deemed, a point in the past that seems
like a memory, in between

the one, two, and three tests that come on fast

while I continue to hold my last breath

fear begins to arise
a swelling and butterfly sensation in times of trepidation cries

as I finally exhale a sigh
and the love within me begins to fly
