Skinned Knees (first 2013 poem)

~ Skinned Knees ~

She misses her once upon a time
Even if she never knew it was there
Ideas of happiness
Ideas of forever
Girlhood dreams
She is grown now
Although she just skinned her knee
And a wistful look
Engulfs her big green eyes

The Rift

::The Rift::

It’s starting to happen again
The clouds form warning of rain
Her tower offers no protection
Since it crumbled and faded away

The angel stares at the sky
Midnight wings dormant at her sides
Eyes wide open
No words spoken
Shell shocked her fear starts to rise

She let him come into her world
He found the lost little girl
Too much he sees
But not willing to flee
He stands still to take it all in

The rift between the angel and the prince
A dark deep bottomless pit
They can see each other’s eyes
Across the jagged divide
And wonder when this separation will end

The angel feels fog at her feet
She turns her face so he will not see her weep
Should she walk away
Or should she stay
After all the prince holds the key.

Indigo Night

Indigo Night
Drifting along on the indigo sea
Trading secrets with the stars
Grabbing a hold of a comets tail
Soaring off into eternal night
Forget the things on Earth that hold me
Away from the sun that shines so coldly
Fly into the shadow of a winters new moon
Entertain Andromeda with the sound of my flute
Leave this world that keeps me surrounded
By people who’s ideas keep me grounded
Into the mist of the teardrop night
Up to the indigo ocean I fly
Trading secrets with the stars
Sleeping sweetly in Saturn’s arms.

Neptune’s Daughter

::Neptune’s Daughter::

There is no moon tonight
She sits atop the dune and stares at the black ocean
Voices from the deep have called her while she sleeps
And now she sits at the edge of the sea waiting
The waves are patiently beckoning for her to join their dance
White caps rush to the shore
Caressing her fingertips
There is no moon tonight
As she stands upon the sand
Inching ever closer
To hold King Neptune’s hand
And in an elegantly mystic moment
The sea calls her home
And on this moonlit night
The sand dune stands alone

This Poem is Dedicated to a sweet friend of mine who adored the ocean. She Passed away September 17, 2012

Rest In Peace Sandi




Sadly there will never be
A future holding you and me
Luna plays a vengeful game
And keeps us spinning light years away
Alone I waltz on Saturn’s stardust
Alone I skip in her rings
And you so far on Andromeda’s star
Cannot do a thing
I toss my wishes into the milky way
Praying that they take flight
A nebula of unborn dreams that shall never burn with light
Andromeda spins in her beautiful way taking you along
At least she is there to hold you
And kiss you in the morn.
