Silhouettes

Folder: 
Just a thought!

          Silhouettes
As the Sun crosses our horizon
And light filters into darkness,
Be assured, a new day will dawn...
Silhouettes looming in elusive shadows
Fading into light... and brightness
Will shine on us all.

12 Love Poems

12 LOVE POEMS
-saiom shriver-


LOVE ETERNAL

*

She wanted no bloom symbols
of love eternal
for their petals proved
most ephemeral

and the flowers did not
wish
to be decapitated

leaving behind

leaves of emerald
*

Note:

George Bernard Shaw: I love little children but I don't
cut off their heads and stick them in vases.
Sathya Sai Baba: Why pluck a flower and hasten his death.

Poet -is-not-was-   Let the flowers be

*

ODE TO JESS AIELLO

*

Roses are pink
Violets are violet
Our love for you is
forever inviolate.

*

WHISPERS

*

They whispered
the arrival
of hate's new rival
.. night feared as pink
dawn approached
his sunless very survival

*

LOVE IS THE SUN

*

Love is the sun..
it can be
covered with the shroud
of a grey or white cloud
but it can never be killed
or scotched or cowed

*

DOVES IN DROVES

*

froggies croak and donkeys bray
lions roar and cowsies moo
elephants trumpet and horsies neigh
doves in droves and pigeons coo

We love you
We love you
We love you
We love you

*

SPIRIT SPIRALS

*

Spirit spirals
beyond stone spires
Spirit spirals
below martial spears
Spirit spins spiders
and spins spirea.
Spirit everywhere swells
Spirit in each being spills

*

REVENGE IS NOT JUSTICE

*

Revenge is not justice
but hate which multiplies evil

*

FIRST LADY MICHELLE

*

Encasing the great soul
of Michelle
is a most beautiful
body shell

*

(to Michelle Obama who works to end
the exploitation of military families and who helps
children to lose unwanted weight,
grow their own food, and realize
how wonderful they are)

*

ROSE HEDGE

*

Over a precipice
on the ledge
they left uncut
the wild rose hedge
which kept more than
one
from going over the ledge

*

ANY PORT

*

When no sweet peach
is around
fruit flies will flock
to lemons on the ground

*

RISING TIDE

*

"A rising tide
lifts all ships"
Upwelling
heartlove lets
none away slip.

*

KISMET CUE

*

As sublime as apples swell with dew
Slow as clouds roll into the blue
Quiet as berry tea crimsons the brew
Soft as rain into green limes grew
Gently as horizon ship moves into view
Welcome as South Wind with fragrance blew
Peaceful as sea.. delta sanddrift drew
Do love's miracles arrive on Kismet's cue.


LOVE'S LESSONS LEARNED

In the sea slowly cools
the red hot volcanic pain.
becoming green glass jewels..
only the learned lessons remain.
*

Note: In time, God answers all prayers.
