Blue Hues

Flap your wings blue butterfly,
dance around my vacant eyes,
enhance nature till life shines,
spread your resplendent design.

Flutter wings to touch the sky,
fling hopes high blue butterfly.
Take my grays, paint them all bright,
fill my dreams with clear insight.

Flamboyant hues gleam pure light,
neon rainbows gloss the night.
Dance around blue butterfly,
keep providing endless sighs.

Freely flow love so divine,
heart and logic intertwine.
Travel through infinite time,
magical blue butterfly.

Prompt – Resplendent

Self Forgiveness (Published at MasticadoresIndia)

I am so happy to announce that my poem Self Forgiveness is featured at MasticadoresIndia. I would love to thank Terveen Gill and the team at MasticadoresIndia for all of their support.

With lowered eyes
and a hushed mouth,
silence my sighs,
while in mid route.

Plastered smiles fly,
push sorrows down.
Happy disguise,
covers deep frowns.

Frantic inside,
loud voices shout,
hurt and chastised,
in and throughout.

Please follow this link to read the rest of this poem.

Thank you so much for all of your kindness and support. 💕


Reading or writing.
Whisked away by fantasy.
Love both equally.

Mourning till my thoughts feel sore,
scrubbing my heart til it’s raw,
contemplating what will be,
letting tears fall down so free.

Clouds crash swiftly in my throat,
volcanoes erupt to coat.
Cloaked emotions try to hide,
release fears clogged deep inside.

Passing without much control,
embracing tugs from my soul,
tingling from this episode,
shivering from head to toe.

Count backwards four, three, two, one,
inhale warm rays from the sun.
Watch self love emit pure light,
my spirit twinkles so bright.

Dismissing negative holds,
allowing joy to unfold,
absorbing all blissful hues,
focusing on better views.

Look forward to tomorrow,
know good times come to follow.
Concentrate on better days,
so positive always stays.

Love Bells

He fit nowhere,
filled with despair,
alone and bare,
he placed a dare.
Arms in the air
yearning to care,
hoped life was fair
and love climbed stairs.

Past bonds all failed,
knew faith tips scales,
ambitions sailed,
noticed details.
Essence of hail,
but felt so frail,
created tales,
he hoped prevailed.

Right then and there,
painted a layer,
a silent prayer,
made him aware.
True joy so rare,
beyond compare,
his perfect pair,
matched his shocked stare

Wishes he mailed,
landed and nailed,
jumped off the rails,
uncovered veils.
Love was exhaled,
huge as a whale,
pure joy inhaled,
forming light trails.

In a joint square,
their life was shared,
endless affair,
true love was theirs.
Bliss filled the air,
bright yellow flare,
found they were heirs,
to hearts that care.

Close my eyes,
free from life.
Pull me high
to the sky.

Take me whole,
heart and soul.
Let tears roll,
loose control.

Peaceful flow,
union glows.
Warm breeze blows
love that grows.

Spring me up,
full heart pumps.
Raise my cup,
bliss erupts.

Absorb core,
fill each pore.
Supply more,
open door.

Fly so free,
golden key,
unlocks glee.
