Door

Sweet, Let All anticipation come,
To stand at the door of my Heart and Knock,
Waiting in Breathless Yearning for the Answer
Only You can Give.
In Supplication I come,
My uncertainties Cast Asunder,
And like a lowly beggar, do Kneel at Your feet,
Oh Lord of my Heart,
Heart of my Love,
To Know Your Simplest Pleasure.
For in the hours of Night and Day,
When Shadows hide and Brilliance Play,
There my Life finds meaningless abstraction
if not in Your Presence.

Mirabilis 7

Old.
Forgotten.
Forsaken.

Mirabilis 6

Dilapidated.
Run Down. Decrepit.

Mirabilis 5

Ancient. Primeval. Deserted. Abandoned.

Mirabilis 4

All of these terms can be applied to any number of structures, once glorious, once tended with affection, once prominent; now standing in silent decay and ruin.

Mirabilis 3

Yet within the hush that has settled over these edifices of antiquity, whispers linger, shadows flicker, and stories wait on the precipice of perception.

Mirabilis 2

These crumbling bastions betray no secrets; still, they entice the imagination and persuade even the most resolute skeptic. Ever worthy of the onlooker’s gaze, even in their final resting peace, they beg to be reexamined and shared.

Mirabilis by aprile24 on Flickr

Mirabilis is a Latin adjective meaning “amazing, wondrous, remarkable”.

Autumn Springs – The Complete Verse

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Autumn Springs

Autumn Springs from Summer’s Flame,
Eternal Passage of Season’s Change,
Dance of Passion’s Lingering Game,
Viridian for Copper, Elemental Exchange.

Primordial instincts embrace epic hues,
Fantasy’s Utopia, view Wisps becoming Brides,
Delphian Fairwell Fairies mimic and muse,
Rousing Shadows and Lovers, crimsons collide.

Pageant of Nighttide, Shimmering Bright,
Secrets Whispered in Primeval Tones,
Gathering Luminous, Spectral Light,
Ethereal Queen Born from muttering crone.

Dauntless Coppice, pursuing nature’s virgin Sprite,
Baptized, Nocturnal King of Twilight’s Beasts,
Queen Dowager awaits Autumn’s marital rites,
Mystic humming, via Motley winds due East.

Dance upon the Darling Midnight,
Twirl amidst the Foliage Aflame,
King and Queen Bedecked in Mirth’s Light,
Escaping Summer’s Clasp, Ne’er to be the Same.

Brilliance sparkling over Celestial skies
Approval granted, Russet Harvest’s grace
Verdict trumpeted, Change of Seasons, shall advise
Regal first kiss, as accompanying Timbers embrace

Spectrum’s Flame of Autumnal Dawn,
Seasons Shift, like Willows Bend,
Dancing Tatiana and Bold Oberon,
In Sweetest Union without End.

Fate’s Tale whirls on Heliotrope dreams
Epic dance, adorning Violaceous Wings
Crisp winds commence, as Folklore sings
Fantasy lives within Autumn Springs

Autumn Springs 2

I am so Delighted to have spent the week working with Audrey on this collaboration. I have loved Audrey’s poetry for so long now and have very often wanted to jump into her Lyrically Dancing words to spin and twirl with her, as her verses ever seem to me like she is Dancing…and NOW We Have shared a Dance Together :) It has been a Dream of a Collaboration and I simply Adore the Tale we’ve woven together. Audrey, Thank You Thank You Ever So~ :)

This poem of the change of seasons, of Halloween, of Light and Darkness is the culmination a week long collaboration with Audrey Dawn from http://oldestdaughterredheadedsister.com whose poetry and beguiling perspectives ever Entice and Inspire me. I am Delighted and Honoured to have worked with her on this poem. Nothing was pre-Planned, nothing pre-scripted…I wrote verse one, then after reading it, Audrey wrote verse two which inspired verse three by me….and so on. Each verse we wrote Inspired the next, taking us on a week long Journey into the Lyrically Unknown.

OctPoWriMo – Perfection in Unity

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Soul Mates

Long We have been separated, Love,
Though in the Dawn of Existence we Kissed Each Other Sweetly.
Born of One Spirit,
Lingering in Breathless Anticipation,
Sharing Each Thought,
Each Breath,
Each Moment,
Unified in Perfection, Perfection in Unity.

Birth brought division, separation, desertion,
Calamity of loneliness and confusion.
Each day I have sought You,
Seeking the Beauty of Your Eyes,
Listening for the Allure of Your Voice,
Reaching for Your Exquisite Hands,
Yearning for the Splendor Your Touch,
Desiring none but You.

Alas, Love, my Search was Fruitless.
Stolen Time, Ineffectual Years,
Breaking the Hourglass of Patience,
Diminishing Essence to Pallor.
Inescapable Longing.
Silence.

Until A Glimmer Escaped the tedium,
A Question Poised on Possibility,
Hope Sprung from her hiding place deep within my Heart
At Seeing You,
Recognizing You,
Though I knew not Your Name,
Certain only of the Pounding of my Spirit,
The Trembling of my Heart,
The Longing Intensified disproportionately.

Waiting
In Patience, Praying
In Diligence, Believing
In Expectant Certainty.
You Are He!
Made For Me, Made With Me,
Sweet Handsome Harmony to my solitary Melody.
Breathe with Me, Again, My Love,
Unified in Perfection, Perfection in Unity.

Breathtaking Sounds

While at the Faire I had the Extraordinary experience of seeing Cast in Bronze perform. The carillons of Cast in Bronze consists of 35 bells each with a total weight of four tons each. Cast In Bronze is the only musical act of its kind in the world, and features the only two carillons in history solely supported by listeners. I was moved nearly to tears by the breathtaking sound!

OctPoWriMo-Saturday Showcase – Desolate

goodbye_my_lover_

Miles Crash like ocean waves,
Driving distance Deep Between us,
Paradox that Tears One Soul in two,
Dispossessing Thus.

Longing Swells like tidal forces,
Cresting o’re the vacuous Chasm,
Calamity on the edge of Reason,
Standing like Phantasm.

Oh Hear me Calling to You Love
Across this Merciless Expanse,
Heed my Spirit Beckoning
And Break this Desolate Trance.

Friday Fantasy – Tranquil Sea

Tags

Tranquil Sea..Sleep

Shades of Softness Flicker and Glow,
Supposing me uninvited,
Yet as the weary hours Unwind,
With Capricious Dreams I am United.
Candles Glimmer, warm scents Suffuse,
Leading me in Beguiling haze,
Dance of Twilight, Gently Sigh,
Entreating me into your Maze.
Peace descends like snowfall, Silent,
Enwrapping me in Serenity,
Released from restless cares and woes,
I Escape into the Tranquil Sea.

Sparkling Magic

There she Weaves,

By Golden Drops of Incandescent Light,

Phantoms Born in the Guise of Dreams,

Whispers Sung in Lyrical Voice,

As All the Forest Dwellers Sigh in Enchantment,

Her Magic Sparkling into the Shadows,

Brightening darkness,

Illuminating,

Smiling.

Friday Fantasy – OctPoWriMo- Solitary Chapel

Chapel

Deep in the Twilight of Emeraldine Moss

Stands a solitary chapel

Tufted with Magic, Illumined by Floss,

Built in the Midnight of now Slumbering Dreams,

Ornate as Bright Apple,

Secluded by Glittering Beams.

Sunlight Dapples upon its Barren Halls,

Whispering with Memory that Quietly Calls.

All

All my Love I Give to Thee,
Thou who Hast Transformed all my Hours,
Forgotten are the Sad Memories,
Distant are the Tears of Waiting.

All My Heart I Share with Thee,
Oh Thou My Love, Sweet Lord of Desire,
Shaken, All my Inhibitions Be,
That Once Kept my Love Debating.

All My Soul I Offer Thee,
Thou who Hast Filled my Life with Joy,
Blessed Am I, Incomprehensibly,
This World, with You, Creating.

Ethereal Galleon

Starlight Sails like an
Ethereal Galleon,
Riding the Waves on the
Ebon Night,
Chasing my Dreams
Through the Glistening Spangle,
Cresting the Waves of
Lavender Twilight.
Rocking in my Imagination,
Gentle Apparition Sailing,
Reciting Sonnets To the
Open Heavens,
My Questing Spirit
Ever Regaling.
Silhouette of Solicitude,
Paint Your way Across the Sky,
While the Serenading Moon
Weaves and Smiles,
With A Seraphic
Tranquil Sigh.
