dancing magic

leaves turn and bend
a winter scheme

inside my heart

dancing magic
in the sky, and in the wind

nature’s purveyor
and plenitude
of love

weaved
with delicate hands

a gift
beyond the scope
of mind

where
it remains lost
and

is only found
when we realize
it’s been there all along

I would like to thank Barbara Leonhard, and the team at MasticadoresUSA for publishing my poem, Starburst Pattern. If you’ve not yet read it, you can find it here. Thank you.

radiance wild

trepidation is a trickle of dew
upon a flower sitting kindly

in the afternoon sun

long and lovely
bending towards the warmth of your smile

a radiance wild

nesting inside my heart
weaved of colors long and short

blues, lavenders, and pinks, always remind me of you

a rainbow festival calls
while I linger in the shadows petals
and their beautiful hues

falling from the sky
a love canopy goes by

dropping the essence of our love
purely divined

and oft remembered during these most magical of times

a gentle touch

passion lives in the wind
and in every pocket of your skin

just as magic resides
in our hearts and minds

Do you remember how it felt when kindness reigned the night?

love burned brighter than it’s ever been
caressing every tree limb

while dripping with a gentle touch
it’s just enough

to know you are there, and I am here

waiting upon your kiss carried on the wind
like seeds floating through the atmosphere

the membrane between you and I becomes thin

the magic in you

the tree climbs through my veins
a richness profane

like a sacred text masquerade

speaking to me of burnt amber
and a subtle and textured decanter

filled with life brimming within its core

Have you ever felt this kind of love before?

it’s just around the corner from here
in a field made from love gifted true

and as I kept watch, you grew

while the feelings ran through
like the magic already living inside of you
