Each Night

Each night

he
comes
to my
window
unannounced,

~

watching
me
from
a
distance

through
starry
eyes.

~

Each night

in
all
his
splendor

~

cloaked
in
glowing
shades
of

dark
mystery,

~

I
sight
him
swaying

to
and
fro

masterfully
in the
evening
wind.

~

Each night

he
whispers
to
me;

deep
enchanting
words

I
feel,

yet
cannot
hear

~

for
his
language
is
unspoken,

and

his
charms,

of
another
world.

~

Each night

he

takes
my
breath

and

lifts
my
mortal
heart,

~

enveloping
me
fully

in
the
sphere
of

his
luminous
presence.

~

And

~

Each night,

before
he
goes,

he
kisses
me;

~

delivering
me
safely

~

to
slumber

~

where

~

I
know

~

now,

~

I
can

fly.

Our Path

“Come now
my
love,”

~

you
softly
say;

~

I
close
my eyes;

~

I
slip
away.

~

“Walk
swift,
our path,”

~

your
whisper
pleads;

~

I
find
my
breath

~

concede
my
need.

~

You
mark
the  trails

~

with
pines
of
gold;

~

You
guide
my
steps

~

whilst
truths
unfold;

~

Beneath
our
tree

~

I wait
for
you,

~

unearthing
dreams

~

we
never
knew.

Just When You…

Just when you
believed
you
knew

~

the
beauty;

the
magic;

the
rapture;

of
our

brilliant
winter
sun

setting herself
over
the

eager
majestic
sea;

~

you
suddenly
realize

that,

in
essence,

~

you
know

~

nothing
at
all.

Unfolding

IMG_0094

You
wait

~

you
watch

~

you
wonder;

~

Patiently,

nurturing

~

caring

~

saturating
me

with
love;

~

And
slowly,

~

layer
by
layer

~

moment
by
moment

~

petal
by
petal;

~

I
open

~

I
reveal
~

I
expose;

~

Unfolding
gracefully
before
you;

~

Offering

my
raw
essence

~

in

all

its
flushed

complexities;

~

Amidst
intricate
creases

and
tender
curves;

~

Unmasking
hidden
facets

~

of
my truest
nature

~

and
the
most
delicate

mysteries;

~

Releasing
sensitive
sweet

aroma;

~
Deep

red
shades

of

~

beauty,

vibrancy

and

life;

~

Until
finally

I
bloom

~

fully

~

wholly;

~

And
you,

the

witness,

~

  Find
a

  joyous
place

~

in the
softest

perfect
center

of
me;

~

Knowing
that

tomorrow

~

it
may
not

be

ours

~

to
hold.

Portals

Brilliant steel potentiality:
Calling me forth, like a
Magnetic portal to
A new place
and time;

Arched over blue expanse of
Liquid fire mystery;
Connecting
What is:

to what
can
be.

Heartfelt thanks to guest photographer, my dear Aunt Renée who honored me by allowing me to feature her stunning image in my post today. I admired this new photo on her Facebook page earlier, and it inspired me to write the poetic verse above. She captured this beautiful shot in Astoria Park NY, beneath the 2 bridges pictured (Hell Gate Bridge and Triborough Bridge ).

I think a new hobby may be calling her forth ~ don’t you?! 

Thank you Aunt Renée ~ I Love You 


Possiblility

“The spark that propels us forward,
is ignited by the possibility of what may lie ahead.”

~ Robyn Lee


Fantasy

“Still round the corner there may wait, a new road or a secret gate.”

J.R.R. Tolkien   

This image was captured late one afternoon when I ventured up an outdoor spiral staircase of a vacant home around the corner from mine…I was looking for Glinda and the Munchkins, but could not find them.

Much Love ~ RL
