I Will Be There to See
I will be in the valley
where the sand meets the tree of fire
and walls that close in
do not exist.
My arms have become part of the stars,
when I walk they enfold night
with a web
encircling a kiss.
My heart contains a spirit of love
I obtained from the sea,
when my skies were filled
with all that I know.
I am here in the valley in between time
and the place where the tree of fire
Come and take my hand
when your morning is cold,
until all that is left
is how you remember me.
Then, when you look into the glass
where your face was alone,
I will always be there

I have much love for Running-Barefoot, she is definitely my sister who knows me…….what lovely pages and a lovely soul.
Sometimes I get tired of having so little time
and plainly seeing my surroundings
crying out before the scent of dawn
Can a single cloud breathe in
all of the warm air
that hails my universe,
removing all reason to wake up,
live life and resume?
I look at fleeing ships
whose sails are full of thunder
and I hear a song
dissolving the wildest parts of me.
Each note dances in the breeze
dropping its own melody
inside my heart
until it becomes the only thing
I hear inside my soul
and I struggle to even

You created one of the most wonderful sites if not the most wonderful site on the internet. Such a glorious place to be as a creative individual. Some of us have spent years building beautiful websites here. No one seems to be interested in them eh, but yet some of us CREATIVE individuals who share the work of our hearts freely, making no money ourselves are just being pushed out the door. The half answers we received from Monica last week made us look like idiots.
Sir, what you have created has many pages full of beauty and the personalities of people from all walks of life and every corner of the world………… but do we hear from you? No……..silence. Silence speaks and it speaks loudly. This site was once the best thing since sliced bread and it fed the hungry. I personally have many visit my site daily to tell me that they find the words I share to be comforting. I visit sites here of other creative individuals and find great comfort myself. You have created a good thing and now you destroy it without a second thought. You leave in your wake a world full of hungry people who need words of hope and inspiration. Do you care? I would like to know…will you continue to be silent?????????????????
If ever there were no secret depths
inside the corners
of a heart,
perhaps lips would not
with no preconceptions.
We could paint the air we breathe,
gentle colors that softly speak
to the mind
in a misty lullaby’s reflection.
If we could swim within our words
touching gray areas
with kisses of time
perhaps, we could gather waves
to last throughout the years.
In the dark of night,
our hearts’ would blush,
as they existed side by side
on the edges
of our atmosphere.
Wherever our hands desired to wander,
unnoticed they would never be,
flaming winds stirring
Once again, we could sleep on beds
of soft words raining down
into all of our emotions
in poetic showers.

Serenading Your Basis
You are a perfect branch
I have been waiting
at your roots,
trying to find myself.
Which part of your trunk
do I stem from,
I cry out to the moon.
Am I not a part of you
are in tune?
I am sharing needful moments
full of sensations anew;
with each breath I take,
singing a song
Staring into forever
my heart pounds
with hopes and dreams.
I am waiting at your roots,
with beauty bursting
at my seams.
You are a perfect branch,
no need to conform.
I am here
serenading your roots
to become your flowers that adorn.

I tried this method to export my Reviews, it works!!!! Thank you Joost5!
What a beautiful and uplifting blog…………….thank you for this one.
Like forgotten lines dancing around love
that never bloomed,
knowing not where to start or end.
You will know when you look
at the blurs that form
when crossing the night
Stretching across the lines are flowers
that once planned to brush the lips
of all the answers
Yet, the smile on your face
could change the mind,
overwhelm the heart
In the distance I see rain
coming down from the air of dreams
full of laughs and smiles
I stare for such a long time
knowing it could all soon go away,
and my heart cries
as I write.
Forgotten lines cut into winds
but have always been right there
dancing around love
that could bloom.
Without moving far off
or crossing the night
we can still

“Take a number,” someone whispered in the night,” any one
Will do!” and come to think of it, it happened to be true..
They’ll dine in or out or perhaps linger in that long blue
Moment in the atrium, or then again, they’ll take the sun
At midnight or take the stairs and skip the banister. They’ll taste
The wine gone flat; and why not? That is, of course, unless they’ve read the signs
