Incredibly Artful

image

Fancy this…
Incredulous delicacy
Infiltrates infusions
Poetic plunder
Unabashed
Pleases plentifully
              Celestially
Pledge a single oath
Solemnly swear it
One possibility only
Today, to plot a new course
Scream out a scheme
Rendered from fond dreams
See prophetically
Make propositions
Of the truest sort

Toward twilight
Activate yet another
Burning desire
Over the rainbow
Cross this zenith
And anticipate
Another approach
Whirl on multiple axial centers
Find pure gratification

Act then…
Be effortlessly free
Wildly fanciful
       Even if set apart
Tempestuously tempt us
Extract agreement from me
Sufficiently treasured
We all achieve more
At a higher rate
Of learning
Through devotion
        I wish this:
     Skyrockets…

Of inspiration!

Full Face

Faced

Moments before sunrise,
not long before dawn
a new day truely began
as this journey started fresh
in totally crisp, cold air
with white backdrop of snow
looked up to see the source
of this brilliant light’s glow
fully whole moon shone
through tops of stripped trees
naked branches stark revealed
this face once partially obscurred
as wispy tattered clouds pass
shadows left, then disappeared
came to light in lingering night
smiled a face so gleefully at me
shines just as an angel would
to guide a sure path to heaven
saint or sinner mattered never
darkness lifted, inconsequential
for God has said He gave this light
to show all mankind through any darkest night we must traverse
the face seen, a babe so sweet
innocent, round face
Face of infant Jesus
Christmas week fast approached
Gave thanks for so many gifts
gifts given from pure grace alone
spread joy, love, laughter
ever more by morning’s star
help feed the hungry, clothe the poor
assist anyone less fortunate than us

Blossom

This song came to me this morning…

Orange Blossom Honey

Yes I am home once more
Back in the fold now…some
Never alone yet lonely still
Almost the same as before

Except for being lonely for him

I remember his eyes true blue
Crying in a heavy downpour
Seems as if just last night
He had grabbed my heart

My everlovin’ broken heart

Had grabbed my hand at last
Only springtime last was clear
Said “Let’s run away together!
And stay together always,forever!”

He led me through a wilderness
To a pretty cabin in the forest
Far into piney woods so deep
On a mountain steep, his to keep

His eyes, have honestly outshown
Any other light I have ever known
His taste, orange blossom honey
Sweet and so completely lasting

Loved me ’til all strength was gone
Only weakness left in us both
When we became most vulnerable
Daddy burst in through his door

With a fully loaded rifle…

Said “My daughter is too young
To be here with you stranger,
To me you’re just some stranger!”
To both of us threatened danger

Loaded me up to take on down
Down to my momma’s valley
Only memories remain of him
He never came around again

To float in this zone beyond
Beyond his love, in desperation
Tho’ this reminder suits me well
Baby to be born any day now

I hope his child looks like him
And still I remember this…
Orange blossom honey
To go with Sassafrass tea

Outspoken

Speak Out

image

In remains
Silenced
Surrendered
Pieced together

Particular participles
As, twelve disciples…
Fled that sordid scene
May we be more brave

Courageous

And I would
Speak out now
So very much,
Soon enough

With any little given
Encouragement

Flagrantly admit
Depth of descent
Antonyms amassed
Of an ancient story

Anatomy lessons
Well spent…then
For very fine guises
Apply today to you

Only in reparation
Of reputations

Although, this: here
Constant aspiration
Conspires to undo
Contemplates more

Admiration becomes
Seductions reduction

In all ways amends
Conflicts of reason(s)
Amid amiable faces
A muse of amusement

In hilarity reprized

Judge not even self
Lest less be sighted
Guarantees can expire
Posture pure poets posh

Into postponement?

Right moments are
Must be made current
Forget this prudence
Blurt out emotions…only…

Gently relinquish
Aggrandizement

And with pause
Say just, the words
Of necessity: Truth
Once heartfelt search

Concludes

What do we really have to lose?
