A Child’s Prayer

Oh light where did your splendid sparkle goTo touch the heaven that I knowWhere I visit God and sit upon His lapI talk with Jesus, lay upon a lion, and take a napJoyful colors make a rainbow of love that can danceAngel wings soar, and fragrance doth enhanceThe brilliance of the moment in the skyI […]

Earthly Ornaments

Our Lord reaches down and kisses the earth softly.Angels cry tears creating melodious mist on strings,garden spiders create to entertain tourists for lunch.Astounding smells of infused beauty melting before me.Tuberose absolute mixing with gardenias and gliding,stroking smooth skin uniting with sweat into gloriousaromas of coconut and sun caressed bodies – chatting.Swaying in the wind are […]

Lockless

Keyless is my lock, yet I readily surrender myself completely,to my thinning skin with shadows of whispers and prickling flesh.Secrets buried beneath a stratum of my dried and cracking crust,as my haunting heart hungers for a yielding stillness, I can truly trust,until my essence is so sweetly scented fading back into ash and dust. Struggling […]

Innocence Betrayed

Green eyes shot serpentine spears of betrayal tersely into mineBlinding me by your lack of love and all I once deemed kind. Once to share my unlocked heart until misery maimed my soul,Reclaiming your “forever after”, with the razor tongue you stole. Untouched and pure was I inside for never had I loved before,You, my […]
