Light And Darkness/ Loving The Wild Ones

My Poems

Tiger, tiger such a fright

You have given me tonight.

I thought to take a little walk

And here you come

As if to talk.

Please pretend you

Do now know

My heart

Is wishing you would go.

Your eyes are bright

They so delight

Our need for color

Grace and light.

But not for what

I see inside

When hunger strikes

On this most lovely,

Lovely night.

Love’s Aging Moments

Blogs or Posts, David's Writing, My Poems

For all the different loves there are
I find this one to be by far
The one that keeps me up at night
The one that brings us most delight.

It calls to me each time to climb
The tree of passion fruit divine.
Although I sometimes fail to see
The bending grass that waits for me.

And yes I sometimes fall from grace
And land upon a softer place.
These things they seem to come and go
Like antlers on a dear old foe.

I wish our love could always find
Aphrodite and her shrine
Upon the ocean’s frothy shore
So I could dive and fall no more.

And then our nights would last til dawn
As we would roll upon the shore
With taut skin scratched until it bled
And arched back crying to be fed.

With water glistening on your breasts
Hair laced seashells wildly dressed
Bruised lips laid upon my skin
And birds screaming just where we’ve been.

I would grasp your waist below
And lift you up so you would know
My masterful (Dear God) embrace
And never want to leave this place!

Until this happens close your eyes
Remember when our youth belied
The constant setting of the sun
Days to years that soon would run.

For in my heart the blood flows warm
And sometimes wishes it were young.
But in my mind the sand breathes fire
Embracing you with deep desire.

I wish that I could show you more
But know it’s you that I adore
And help me find the script I laid
Between the words of this brief page.

So then we’ll see just what is what
And who is hot and just how much
Eager to visit warmer clime
And merge both blood and open mind.

I hope you’re ready as they say
To see the dragon slayed today.
Make sure the mirrors have been cleaned
So we may view the fateful deed.

Whatever happens most of all
Let me make you laugh somehow.
Your clown prince cometh soon to town
And all do hope he won’t fall down.

And when at last we rest at night
Upon a silent sheet of light
Listening to the dogs next door
Remember I do you adore.
And know tis you that I adore.

Now might be a good time to mention that the voices speaking in each of my poems are not necessarily me! Parts of them might be me or all or none.

Because this poetry as a whole is not about me! Hopefully it will be more entertaining than it possibly could if that were the case. I am trying to write about our human condition and the strong emotions that are a part of it. Love seems to be an easy one for me to write about but maybe at some point I will try some others. But not really dark ones. I won’t be writing about hate anytime soon. Fear maybe. Oh wait. I already did that in the poem about the tiger. Confusion? Is that an emotion? Embarrassment? That’s a possibility.

We will see. Thank you for all the encouragement I have received for poems already done. They really are the soul of this blog and the main source of its traffic as well.

Maybe we will see you at the beach sometime!

Sailing Away

* * *

Last night we gathered on a ship

Our tribe and all our friends,

And sailed for distant galaxies

To find a peaceful land.

The stars received us as we went

Our lives passed through their gaze

We sailed between bright fire and light

Our eyes were all ablaze.

"Days of our Lives"/ Let Your Hair Down/ Poem About Love

My Poems

*

*
*
The evening has left us
Quietly to ourselves.
I watch you move before the mirror
Releasing all the catches and stays
The predictable moments and habitual ways.
Until the softness of the light reveals
Your moving presence and my cautious appeal.
Can I catch the light that glitters in your eyes
And hold you in my arms?
A prayer weaves its way above
As we explore
The promises of love.

Romantic Love/ Deeply In Love Poems

My Poems

How is it possible

We are here today?

I can remember being alone

Before you came

And opened up my world.

And now the wind is all around my heart

And sand enfolds your lovely feet.

I am beyond caring for past or future moments.

We are here.

Flying with so many eyes

And wings upon the current.

They will find our shoes.

And echoes of our cries upon the wind.

Children running on the beach

And days we cannot number.

Jordin/ Love Of A Fan Poetry

D's Photos, My Poems


Jordin Of The Evening Sky

I listen to you sing
And hear your heart beating.

I see you smile
And think of the sky.

Between the star in the evening
And the moon arriving

Is a place for you
And the wind blown clouds.

You are beautiful
Because your soul must sing

Must smile.

Must love.

You are an incarnation
Of something seldom seen.

Joyful one.
Jordin of the evening sky.

Sailing Away

David's Writing, My Poems

Last night we gathered on a ship

Our tribe and all our friends,

And sailed for distant galaxies

To find a peaceful land.

The stars received us as we went

Our lives passed through their gaze

We sailed between their fire and light

Our eyes were all ablaze.

Until we reached a port of sorts

With meadows near a sun

And joyous children running round

Who welcomed us at once.

They ruled this planet with a light

That shone from their deep eyes.

And no one wanted anything

Nor did they fear to die.

For there upon a mountain top

Far as the eye could see

There was one child who filled the world

With love and mysteries.

And when the children grew too tall

No longer children were

They climbed the mountain to the boy

And left through heaven’s door.

We were entranced and climbed so high

To see his glowing face.

He smiled our way

The mountain sang

We died in his embrace.

And then I woke amid the sails

That guide my ship at night

And prayed that I would see again

This boy who was the light.

One Year Old/ "days of our lives"/ Poetry

D's Photos, My Poems

*

One year old you are today

And moving forward on your climb

To three and six and ten years old

Days that seem so far away

But will be here without delay.

Still there will never be a time

When innocence is more sublime

And you face brighter with love.

As you wonder

Why strangers adore you

And where do they go

When they walk out the door

And fall off the edge of the world.

My Poems

The sun wears upon my brow

As I dance and sing.

My labor is this way

Almost every day.

And the words always seem

To find their way back to me.

But not in my dreams. No.

There it’s all new

And I sing new songs always

For me and for you.

And together we watch

As the sun does arise

As it joins us in laughter

As the chorus arrives.
