OF LOVE AND BUTTERFLIES

OUTSIDE THE COVERED-SHELTER

RIGHT BESIDE MY STUDIO WINDOW,

A LATE AND LAZY AFTERNOON,

THE SUN WAS SHINING SO WARM AND HAPPY.



AND OVER THE FLOWER-COVERED FENCES,

AND UPON MY GREEN LAWNS

THE WATERPOOL AND OVER THE SHRUBS.



PLAYFULLY, THE LIGHTS WERE DANCING

ALL OVER THE PLACE,

WITH THE ORANGE AND BRIGHT BUTTERFLIES,

THAT WERE FLYING ALL AROUND



TOGETHER WITH THE COLORFUL DRAGONFLIES,

THEY WENT HERE AND THERE

AND IN FRONT OF MY EYES, HAVING JUST

WITH ONE ANOTHER, LOTS  OF FUN.



SILK TOUCHING ALL THE FRESH AND BLOOMING

FLOWERS, WITH THEIR LACEY AND LITTLE WINGS,

AND OF SUDDEN THEY JUST STOP,

RIGHT IN MID AIR OR JUST ON TOP OF SOME GREEN LEAVES,



AND ALSO ON MY RED AND PINK FLOWERS IN BLOOM,

AND THEN THEY TOOK OFF, ONE BY ONE

FLYING QUICK, I DON'T KNOW WHERE AND WHY

JUST LIKE ALL MY DREAMS OF YOU.

Another Shade Of Red

The darker shades of the sunset
Burn the angered depths of me
The gnarled fingers that pull my strings
And shape what I'm to be

I close my eyes to the pulling sky
The red much deeper than the blue
And sleep beneath the deepest black
With dreams I can't make true

Yet wishing breaks the spell that makes
Regrets of all I've said
I open my eyes to a new sunrise
And another shade of red

Your Words

When you give your words to me gently...

my soul is composed in your prose.



When you give your words to me harshly,

my mind, unwinds within your dark design.



When you give your words to me honestly...

my self, gains wealth.  I catch your health.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Please give me, only the best of you ~ your honesty.

Yes, Doctor

He said "Open wide".

"Let me take a good look inside".

Show me all of your dark places, spaces,

where traces of you might hide.



No secrets here, nothing can be denied.

"I'm fine", I said.

  

I lied.



In some cases ~ it is my oasis, only mine!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

You're the Doctor, or am I?

Postpoems.com a tribute to my fellow poets.

I sit at my computer tapping away,

Hoping that someone will read my work,

Just to make people happy,

Even the person thats a jerk.



Me and my friends at Postpoems.com

We have more fun than anyone,

You may think that we don't have a life,

We're doing what we love, and we have fun.



So if you wish to join us,

go ahead you'll have a good time,

Cause we are all together,

Writing our inspiration and our rhyme.


Author's Notes/Comments: 

I hope everyone doesn't mind me bragging about the people on here. I love you all.

I am not afraid

Of opening a new door

To find myself again

What I've been searching for

All my life

I have lived

Doing for others

They always take, I always give

No more for me

They have ruined it

For the new

Took advantage, left me askew

No thank you

Not for me

My heart has sealed over

Just let it be

Another day will pass

Maybe it will give a new light

Am hoping someone is out there

That is willing to give,  without a fight

There once was a time

  When I stood where you are today

Read the same thoughts

  Had the same things to say

You need to choose

  Which road to take

Can’t let it overcome you

  Must take over before it’s too late

Decide what it is

  You might need to move forward

If you don’t possess it

  Then it was never yours

If you hold it within

  Must find the strength

The courage to bear all

  What is left is fate

This you must embrace

  When you are done

There is nothing left to be said

  The answer is only one

I wrote this for a friend of mine who was having some hard times fall on them.  I know we are all here at one time or another.
