Virtuously Blind

 

It’s the shade of blue that covers the sky
In December, when the sun is high
The light that crosses over your face
Shadows hold to no avail

Could it be you’re a mere fragment of my imagination?
Cask from the depths of my soul
Conjured from the wanting of my heart and
shaped by the very essence of my mind

Aware am I
That all this could be a dream
The fall of golden blonde across your shoulders
And silky skin
Pallid in the early hours
When dawn performs
Emerging as a holy flower

A blessing and a curse
Sin and virtue pooled
Tasted by a fool
Lips of red wine,
Spill
My bleeding heart
Created you from the vine
Virtuously blind.

I know its been awhile and I’ve missed my writing space and writing friendships made. The last few months have proved challenging. I’m due to have my second baby girl in two weeks and my ability to write has disappeared? My mind is blank with the upcoming event taking centre stage! Please forgive my absence.

MERRY CHRISTMAS and  a HAPPY NEW YEARS everyone!

I hope you have a wonderful holiday with family and friends.

Here’s new and exciting adventures in 2017!

Black Trees and Dawns Silver Face 

Shadows fall in soft breath over river rocks,
Silhouettes dance upon the shore,
Time stands emotionless,
Like,
Pine needles,
And,
Branches sleeping in long gently rhyme,
Bestowing shade on a long summer’s day,
Black trees and dawns silver sun,
Lighting my way to a new day begun.

Today I would like to nominate the very talented Jacqueline at A Cooking Pot and Twisted Tales. With her creativity I know she’ll be great at this challenge!

Bathe With Me

Come my love,

Show yourself to me,

Bare and uncovered,

Let us bathe in the sea,

The water is deep,

The wave will wash,

Cleanse,

Carry you into my arms,

Amidst the coral and shells,

As one,

Naked under the sun,

We,

Anchored on the tides,

Bathe with me in love’s soapy sponge.
