Fated Star Revealed

:: Luna & Saturn::

Fantasy worlds engulf me
As music lulls me soothingly
I drift away lazily
Wrapped in Luna’s midnight wings

Water drop peals adorn my hair
A pale green gown is what I wear
I slowly dance up Saturn’s stair
I look for my fated star

We meet this night on Saturn’s rings
We talk of love and mysterious things
We muse over mortals fragile dreams
While Luna nods her approval

Saturn’s rings envelop us
Luna sings a song
We drift away lazily
Sleeping sweetly in Saturn’s arms.

Poetry in a text message

::A future Adventure::

It’s thundering
One of these days
A secluded field
Summer night
And rain and a good roll in the grass


I actually just sent this in a text message because it just started to thunder and rain outside. the response to this text made me laugh. And me being an imp decided to post this. Like I said I really can be an angel faced witch. This could be a deal breaker.. LMAO

Depth-less Eyes

Falling fast into depthless eyes
Feelings are fighting to see the light
Holding back from an angelic smile
Is she ready to give her heart away for life

Thinking thoughts of two forever
Love in sunshine and stormy weather
Fear is fading into a smile
But darkness keeps her from his side

Her demons haunt her wanting heart
Shadows keeping her from a perfect start
Love is breaking her will inside
As she gazes into depthless eyes.


Clyde’s Poetry Reading

I wrote this little series while Caribbean Fool and I were in Richmond where he did his first poetry reading. Near the end of the reading with some coaxing I went up and read these little poems that I had wrote while observing this whole event. Talk about no time to edit LOL.

Part 1 ~ Dinner

Waiting for the waiter
Looking at the menu
Yeah we know what to order
Talk, Laugh
forgot, not sure what we wanted
Waiter takes order
Clyde takes a round-about way
to say no cheese on his burger
Exit waiter stage left
Laugh at Clyde
Goofy smile and fuzzy eyes
smoke to much Clyde?
Waiter back
Confirms order laughing
so what will happen
When dinner gets here
Gotta get to the poetry reading

Part 2 ~ Anticipation

Anticipation in the room
But only me?
Maybe everyone
Anxiety, excitement
Yes…. that is me
Clyde is going to live a dream
I get to see it
Be There
All six senses alive
Absorbing this virgin moment
My poet soon to stand
In front of an audience
first time to share his written word
Words that have been read by many
Heard by a handful
Felt by none
His feelings alone
Smiles on my face
So proud
Shutterbug moment
Document this moment
His dream
I am sharing it
Waiting for his voice to fill the room with words

Part 3 ~ Idle Chatter

Idle chatter
Get on with the event
Random conversations
Words slushed together
I can’t pay attention
Escape these conversations
Meet and greet
Get to know your audience
Fellow writers/readers
I’m not reading today – nor will I ever
Recording this – Clyde’s dream
In sloppy documentation
Illegible left hand
State Farm courtesy paper – love my agent
Clyde gives me a notepad
Easier to write – He rocks
Chit chat
Music history
I just smile at the animation
Get on with the event

Part 4 ~ Clyde Reads

He stands up
Shuffles his feet
words finally breaking free
Everyone to hear his thoughts
I am so proud
He reads one written for me
I blush
Afraid of the subject matter
No worries
Just reading about the plastic stars
Starbright wishes
Clyde beams
I beam brighter
So much pride for him
Living his dream
I keep this moment
In the locket in my heart
One day
He will live this moment with me

~ The End ~

He Didn’t Realize

He gave me the moon and the stars
He put them in the palm of my hand
Only he could do that
Give me all I ever wanted
Just a simple thing
A toy really
A yellow bouncy ball
Covered in stars and half moons
He didn’t realize what he did
Giving me that small gift
First star wishes
Goddess Moon
The indigo sky that inspires me to write
He put them all in the palm of my hand
And he didn’t even know it.

Baby you know this is for you. Like I said you turn my stormclouds into sunshine. I love you, it took 5 years to get to three weeks.

He gave me the moon and the stars
