butterfly touch

pain and pleasure
often go together, a mystery

of feelings
conjured from the depths
of being

one
with the gifts bestowed
sitting transfixed

I know
the touch of butterfly wings
which

always
take me
into the night

where everything is hidden
yet

still in plain sight
reminding me

I have finally arrived

butterfly wings was inspired by the poem Love and Pain, by Peace Isama.

your eyes, Published at MasticadoresUSA

I am pleased to announce that my poem, your eyes, 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.

your eyes

nature is full of wonder, all of its
aspects take me

under, into a world seen and unseen
like the breeze

on a cold and windy day
in the midst of a calm sea

I resign, and stay…

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

a dance of mysterious tapestry


as the breeze comes through the window,
I hang hopes on clouds, running fast,
and furious, quite profound

are they

beautiful, translucent, and full of
magical movement, transcending this
moment…

light and dark, in a dance of mysterious
tapestry, woven gently, and carefully,
by the unseen, preen

shielding you and me, from the glean,
as the shadows begin to dance with
the trees

the flowers perk up, and provide a love
seen

lasting centuries…
