I write with quill and ink

Lover’s Mantra

Fall stories from heaven into these arms,

Dive deep into pools that reflect true beauty

Fear not the abominating idea of love,

But most fear not the fact that love is returned

Make love letters reminding reasons of existence,

Sowing seedlings of poetry to shape and define

 Plant even minute memories in each’s hearts,

Letting it grow well as lovers tend and care

Leave solitude by the doorway and dance in,

The threshold is accepting the coming of spring

Laugh like the rainbow smiling as it turns,

Upside down, spinning colors vibrant from the heart

Kiss like the gently falling of summer rain,

Patting heads of star crossed lovers in blessing

As day ends breathe in the scent of musk and floral

Mind that two hearts embrace love and embrace life

Blue

We made memories of us, ’twas grand
Still I felt blue in us and alone I stand
Full hands yet empty heart I feel
Our dizzying revelry we roll and reel

Was any of it true when I held you?
Was any of it true when I kissed you?
Still, together I stumble in my own feet
You help me up but our eyes never meet

Life’s honey colored shades now turn blue
Our memories grand but now without you
I kill endless time as come morning light
Give me strength in this lonesome plight

Beltane Woman

RL001363

You find me maiden full of joy, full of life,

Dancing wildly beneath diamond skies,

Here in this circle I know no strife,

Learned to love and love you without lies

 

You find me mother full of grace and endless passion,

Our love is planted and pregnant as the moon,

Here in our home building laughter and compassion,

In this nest of love, like birds, we kiss and we croon

 

You find me the crone full of the world and of wisdom,

Our cup is overflowing countless blessings,

Hear children, my counsel as sage to a kingdom,

Words of the wise will have no misgivings

 

I am woman, besom of fire- forged and hewn,

Created in conglomeration of water, earth, and sky,

I was made, wakened, and called to love you,

From love I was made and from our love I shall die

The Heart-Shaped Moon

DSCN4403

 

I laughed to see this pleasant image,

A heart- shaped moon staring back from the dark,

Stark and lit with a thousand prayers,

With a thousand maidens wishing all the same,

But mine was spoken and rejoined this time,

When I was ready to live without.

The moon coincided with my heart,

She told me she and I are in love,

She with love,

And I with you,

I prayed to her for you in my youth,

For the scent of musk in your hair,

The huge personality with the kindest smile,

Large hands and arms yet the gentlest touch.

You sway me with your inner-beauty,

Caress me like the wind on my skin in May,

You cool me with the sweetest words,

Yet heating me with your kisses.

Here I see the heart-moon tonight, smiling.

She tells me, she is in love

Because we are in love

Valentina

DSCN4371

Valentina, my beautiful blood- red rose mink

Once so bountiful in crimson now fade in pink

Tormenting heat robbed you of your passion

Once was red now dulled without compassion

The scorch of dry kisses singed your cheek

Thus in each advances you curl and turn meek

Valentina, share my heart to remove your terror

I too have felt the red of heat in my heart before

I too know the idea of love masked in lust and desire

I too have succumbed, fell in that desperate quagmire

Time and familiarity taught me to doubt in such

Yet not this one- he carries his dyes with his touch

To blush you red when sees you a blank canvass

Let him flush you full crimson in your waking days

Valentina, he will not burn us like the others’ ways

For there is the one hand to hold in the end

The one to shade us from the burning of the sun

The one who will quell us with a cool blow of mirth

Valentina, share my heart and release misgivings

Bloom red once more without lust but with honor

Impetuous scalding heat is temporal, Love is eternal

Valentina is the rose breed name here in the country. It’s petals are always deep red and it blooms in clusters. This summer all the blooms are coming out pink.

Perfect

It’s best to describe you darling, “Perfect”.

Negative words shall not cross this effect,

Present you without ego,without pride,

Any inhibitions and hindrances have died

You wrapped me complete in safety’s embrace,

Showed me that true Love is prayer’s grace,

You showed me a door before I dared not cross,

For previously shallow love gave me such loss

You made me stronger in my beliefs,

Gave courage and hope in your “what ifs”,

You need not convince me more,

You are the one lovebird pair I longed for

Answered prayer gave me you in perfect trust

We honor it and honor us; our Love will never rust,

You speak Love between our fears and goals,

Believe in me, believe in us and Life will have no lulls

Breeze and Fire under the Moon

Lovely though lonely, the breeze gracefully dances,
Oblivious to evil, twirls around in foxy stances.
Versatile and warm, the fire yet suffocates alone,
Evanescent spark of happiness, soon cold as stone.
 
Bespoke reunion of two wills meant for each other,
Igneous tango, breeze has passion, fire the desire.
Resplendent beauty, pure in the Beltane’s twilight,
Devoted love in fiery frolics, a blissful delight.
Sublime in the moonlit night, two hearts, one hearth.

Speak Softly

Let us rather speak softly,

Deep in few ideal words,

Than speak quite hastily ,

Plenty with petty vocabulary

The gift of tongues given,

Was with a single purpose,

Only to speak with love,

And harm none in process

You shall hear no hurt

Escape these simple lips,

Even strong storms dissipate

Quelled with tender terms,

Spoken well mean nothing yet

Everything to the hearer,

Love spoken unclad in gossamer,

Leaves truths selfless in desire

Commune gentle with another,

Like kissing a passionate lover,

Bloom words like a flower,

To gracefully open doors

Leading to an honest soul,

Then let words stay in peace,

Resting full in happy hearts,

Where love will grow eternal

– m a r i f o s q u e

Happy Valentines Day!

Garden

 

The days are kind; we opened to taste

Luxurious breath caressing our skin

Love has never been this sweeter

For departed with temporary sorrow

She introduced us to hold, and live for

The quiet understanding between us

Upon which door the future we may take

Learning, she is teaching us to move

Together or against, yet with each other

She is teaching us that love ends not

Like the isolated feel of wintry tundra

But stirs again like the gardens in spring

She is teaching us should we will it so

Flowers will bloom brighter in adversity

Then she encourages us to our hands

Our heart beats single in pleasing tunes

We dance to the swirl of calm romance

Leaving a wake of roses farmed in affection

We bloom rare like late flowers in autumn

And In her quiet heady-scented spring garden

Planted firmly she will watch us grow in Love
