You shared your warm light,
when I stood alone,
embraced me so tight,
then swallowed me whole.

I laid in your heart,
then made it my home,
made sorrows depart,
cleared fears with a comb.

We traveled through space,
a journey through time.
Lived life at our pace,
filled with joyous chimes.

You cradled my hands,
whispered all you felt,
Forever we stand,
together we melt.

We lived through adventures,
I peeked through your eyes.
became your thirst quencher,
embraced we flew high.

Exposed deep dark thoughts,
then laughed till we cried.
as lessons were taught,
made life our fun ride.

Showered with Love

Through comet storms and shooting stars,
forever strong , never depart.
Walk in the dark, still hand in hand,
forever firm, together stand.

One solid tree, a hopeful sign,
forever whole, souls intertwine.
United in this endless race,
forever love well interlaced.

Inclement weather serves as glue,
forever real, always so true.
Natural blessings fulfill needs,
forever fair, pure hearts succeed.

Wishes cascade upon us both,
forever sure, infinite oath.
Shiny intentions make life right,
forever bright constant delight.

Response to Sadje’s picture prompt on What Do You See # 182 April 17, 2023


Enter a dance,
a hidden trance,
burns through my stance,
knots form romance.

A touch so deep
instantly seeps.
Float to then leap,
finally reap.

Peels through my skin,
clears every sin.
At last, a win,
infinite spin.

No longer wrong,
always belong.
Love soars so strong,
whispers a song.

Forbidden clues
led to grand views,
carried peace too,
daydreams came true.

Unfold warm wings
soul pulls heartstrings,
together cling
as one we fling.

Forever Love

A precious dove fell deep in love,
with a fierce hawk flying above.
One day they met, a friendship set,
their heartbeats formed a great duet.

The pretty dove often felt plain,
uninteresting, and so mundane,
Until the hawk erased all lines,
gave her his heart for Valentines .

They spent this day under sun rays,
laughed as they played til skies turned grey.
Decided to follow their hearts,
then vowed to never be apart.

Some differences soon came to light,
the dove felt dull, no longer bright.
Her flight not high, lacked sharp hawk eyes,
inside her worth had slowly died.

Loud silence made him feel uptight,
hawk knew that something was not right.
He went for flights, promptly each night,
searching for ways to make dove bright.

A new idea soon came to him,
to find out why his dove turned dim.
Exposed his soul so she could see,
how his fondness will always be.

She soon explained what she believed,
he smiled at her feeling relieved.
“Our differences excite our days,
enhance in many distinct ways.”

The couple soon went back to peace,
as everyday their love increased.
Though not the same, they were twin flames,
eternal love they both proclaimed.

Muted voice sings in his head,
opaque lyrics go unread.
Loud blurry scenes on his mind,
imagined lines undefined.

Stardust hues form happy thoughts,
blind both eyes from wars once fought.
Comforts his head on silk sheets,
all he seeks, ego defeats.

Bright glowing beam on his face,
kiss his skin with endless grace.
Floats along, visions foreseen,
suddenly life seems serene.

Smells perfume as she arrives,
voices she hears come alive,
instantly visions feel right,
transparent thread ties them tight,.

Melts away in his deep eyes,
meets herself within his sigh.
All his soul knows, her mind sees,
turns the key so love flies free.

Together laugh day and night,
securely bask in warm light,
sharing one distinct heartbeat,
happy, whole, for once complete.
