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

Moon’s Dust, Published at MasticadoresIndia

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, Moon’s Dust, is now available at MasticadoresIndia. Thank you to Terveen Gill, and the team at MasticadoresIndia for their continued support, and for publishing this piece.

Moon’s Dust

drips drop from the top of a
stopwatch

as the minutes until we meet cascade
over my heart

watching the fear depart

say you’ll love me until the last act of the art…

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

alight and aflame

displays are on the screen
and behind them are clouds seen

as mysteries continue to pour into me

of a love lingering in the rain
specks of dust are always the same

tiny fragments of being, they came

to me at last
while I let my heart open to the possibilities

of you, my love
dancing into the night, alight and aflame

silver trim

dreams leak from my eyes, the
sun shall find

a way into my heart, cresting over
the canopy, love bourgeons
through the
limbs

lining the contour
with silver trim,
cascading over
the land

giving dreams a second chance,
they arrive in my
hands

and
outstretched
across the void of time, we,
for each other,
stand

letting light guide the way, a
flutter or two, takes
center
stage

as we let love parade…
