November & Neptune

There were no seashells to be found
Six days I had looked
Neptune must have been on another shore
I prepare to leave my ocean
I prepare to say goodbye
To the boy with the shadowed eyes
He plans to bring me back soon
But I missed a chance
To dream seashore dreams
To look at the stars
Reflected in my indigo ocean
I failed to capture a picture
Of our shadows in the sand
A feeling of dread comes over me
As sand is traded for pavement
In my heart I knew
I would not be back again

Dreaming through the years 2000-2013

Once I dream t of Camelot
Misty castles along the ocean
Once I dream t of a prince
Who would pledge me his devotion
Once I dream t of stormy skies
And a claddaugh ring on my hand
Once a fallen Angel
With demons in her head
Once alone on Saturn’s rings
Waltzing with the dead
I have dream t so many dreams
In my cherished moonlit nights
I’ve wrote my life’s story
By the warm glow of candlelight
I have dream t so many things
On my perfect fantasy world
I escaped reality and lived in fairy-tales
I still dream of Camelot
And Castles on the shore
But now I am content without a prince
To complicate my world

Ocean Whispers

Silky waves are calling me somewhere in my dreams

Ocean mist is touching me while in my bed I sleep

Too long has it been since I tasted the sea

Too long has it been since the waves caressed me

I long for my nights walking alone on the dunes

I long a glimpse of my indigo Moon

Neptune’s daughter alone on the sand

Holding the Moon in the palm of her hand

Silky waves are calling me somewhere in my dreams

Ocean mist is touching me while in my bed I sleep

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

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.
