Happy 10th Anniversary!

So many thoughts makes my heart sing,
on bended knee an endless ring,
you comfort me when days bring stings,
help my hopes fly, sew broken wings.

How can I express what I feel?
Sincerest love, consistent zeal,
within your arms my sorrows heal,
strong connection, forever real.

How did ten years fly in a blink?
Still make me blush with a quick wink,
true harmony, always in sync,
fatefully glued, eternal link.

How do you make my days so bright?
Offer my heart pure love and light,
transform mistakes, make all wrongs right,
shared visions bless life with foresight.

How did such opposites attract?
Powerful presence, strong impact,
the perfect match, precise, exact,
infinite knot, soul kissed contract.

No questions asked, they have no place,
I find my peace in your embrace,
kind eyes reflect glory and grace,
endlessly sealed through time and space.

Fifty and Fabulous

Count off the years, watch as they fly
deep birthday wishes flutter high.
Blow every candle on the cake
excited hopes swiftly awake.

Old hesitations, now believe,
arms open wide, learn to receive.
Inner desires find their way,
travel through thoughts, this special day.

No time or space on this birthday
true passions come without a sway.
Expectations do not deceive,
they manifest what hearts conceive.

Solid intentions, do not shake,
clear visions stay, to never break.
Close eyes so tight, exhale up high,
aware that years swiftly flow by.

Birthday’s provide greater wisdom,
gifts of foresight, knowledge prism.
Bright fruitful roads, finally earn,
dusty falls count as lessons learned.

Delightful faith inhales then blows,
magical flames dance as they glow.
Smiles greet visits from joyful tears,
grateful to savor this sweet year.

A wise empath I know,
carries distinctive eyes,
her reflective mirrors,
expose secrets that hide.

Feels every deep sorrow,
lessens aches and pains,
shares tears others swallow,
then connects to their chains.

Sees lies slide unnoticed,
so no one feels ashamed.
Unwanted emotions,
penetrate just the same.

Offers an open hand
at the risk of her fall.
Absorbs fears and sadness,
to then dissolve them all.

A true angel on earth,
still, will not spare her wrath.
Stands perfectly balanced,
to create balanced paths.

Great mystical presence,
aura fills up the air.
Pure lit divine essence,
always driven to care.

Magical infinite plain,
endless as indigo skies,
moonlight floats with no restrain,
allows emotions to fly.

In an ocean dense and wide,
broader than the universe,
lives pure hope that cannot hide,
recharges and reasserts.

Midnight black colored plateau,
made so dark it almost shines,
bright souls reap what true hearts sow,
velvety fog is refined.

Joyful laughs fuel up this drive,
ends dull fears, they pass with time.
Skip, hop, jump then take the dive,
dance around to inner chimes.

Glitz reflects a rare jewel,
radiates just like a star.
Build a world where real love rules,
devotion runs near and far.

Winded lovers become one,
no known sight could beat this view.
Soundly sleep with the warm sun,
formed to comfort me and you.

Moonwashed Weekly Challenge #162 – September 26, 2023
Prompt – Velvety


A promise to stay,
forces actions to sway.
False hopes still remain,
tender hearted from pain.

To walk all alone,
heavy feet feel like stones.
Memories hold time,
dance to silent wind chimes.

Live life nonchalant,
gain all needs but no wants.
Difficult to know,
all the power thoughts own.

Regrets drive minds mad,
guilts lament what hands had.
Ego pushes starts,
true love never departs.

Learn how to accept,
allow soul to connect.
Pure smiles light days up,
to fill all empty cups.

Bittersweet farewell,
no more reasons to dwell.
Blink away old views,
essence forever true.

Broken hinges,
power strolls.
Greed infringes,
lessons scroll.

Sugar wishes,
shine on goals,
repair glitches,
to fill holes.

Full view mixes,
results show.
Hollow fixes,
wealth soon grows.

Scratch deep itches,
self control.
Find clear niches,
fill lost roles.

Build strong bridges,
pay the toll.
Smooth out ridges,
future rolls.

Climb up inches
pave clear roads.
Conquer flinches,
solid mold.

Gleam with riches,
choices glow.
Faithful switches,
help hopes flow.

Velvet kisses,
comforts soul.
Sews and stitches,
new and whole.

Response to Sadje’s picture prompt on What Do You See # 205 September 25, 2023


Strength in silence goes unheard,
swiftly slices with no words.
Scream out loudly with deep looks,
reads each thought like a good book.

Blinded eyes still see beauty,
screens away hidden cruelty.
Focuses on what will be,
count out goals to sets hopes free.

Negatives fall on deaf ears,
quickly diminishes fears.
Searches beyond vibrant sounds,
synch with tones that feel profound.

Well known scents fill up the air,
warmest hues still linger there.
Absorbs each joyful warm tear,
senses pure light as it nears.

Instant numbness with one touch,
new sensation is too much.
Stimulates within each soul,
dusty fears shed, fall, and go.

Releases all anchored doubt,
positive vibes spread about.
Feel powerful and complete,
spreads pure love throughout heartbeats.

Extended your hand,
when I was alone,
you held me so tight,
then swallowed me whole.

I laid in your heart,
then made it my home,
lit a bright candle,
to then watch it glow.

You traveled through space,
navigated time,
made life a movie,
I laughed at your crimes.

I tugged at your heart,
whispered all you felt,
ignited your sparks,
made the hot wax melt.

Lived your adventure,
peeked through your wide eyes.
Till one fated day,
I tugged at your side.

Exposed profound thoughts,
we laughed till we cried.
Clutched to each other,
made days into rides.

Apart we dissolve,
entwined so solid.
Your chest my pillow,
offers tears solace.

Form a fairyland
where we both fly free,
together we stand,
true love guaranteed.
