In Celebration of Love


Celestial Embrace

Rushing liquid floats into

ice, pushing against its surface

the flow embarks and rises

over the icy top

forming one expanse of cold

a lake of winter’s embrace.

Underneath this chilled sheath

lies the angel, wings of a winter

waiting to be healed

a soul trapped, frozen

from the unyielding snow.

A gentle creature of an unknown world

emerges from depths of indigo

sensing her, he reaches out

heated fingertips

to brush the angel’s lips

parting their depths to the

star-strewn night sky.

Clouds bend at the touch

of the two souls in ‘midst of a

Gypsy dance

that spins and twirls

the ebb and flow of them

melting the icy shell of water.

Bubbles once captured in ice

turn to pixie dust, carrying them

to the smiling moon, that hangs in this

lavender night strewn with

angelic madness.

Lulls of a harp accompany

her soprano sighs

as he fills her bosom with

sweetened milk and her body

with his own.

Softly she speaks in the

hushed tone of one he possesses

deftly he enfolds her being

into his cradle.

Wrapped in this Universe for two

they float, making love like

slow honey

caught in this celestial bliss

next to the smiling moon.

Inspired by Stars

So many artists are inspired by stars, and I am no exception. From the bright constellations in our skies have come many poems, songs, romances & dreams. Over my years as a writer & singer, they have been a constant theme in my artistic life. I do hope you enjoy a few of my short poems of the stars. I was nominated by Kim for a Quotes challenge (click for link to her lovely blog), so will include some beautiful quotes of the stars that I love as well.

Starlit Sanctuary

She dances ‘neath midnight sky,

Spinning as her wishes fly,

Lost in the glow of moonbeams,

Safe in her starlit sanctuary of dreams.

Stitching Hope

Reaching into the universe,

She stitched a constellation of light,

Creating a blanket of stars,

A ray of hope in the darkness.

Made of Stars

She was an ink painting of night filled with diamonds,

her sighs twinkling in the chill,

her eyes spilling moonlight tears & star dreams.

Rainbow constellations

She held a rainbow of constellations within,

light shining through every fiber of her skin,

hope sparking in the night,

her dreams a wondrous sight.
