My latest poem for Autumn…

LEGEND

Grey is your name like your dark past

But your future is green like spring

Strong is your chin like marble

Your jaw is set to withstand anything

Resolute your features so clear

Like nature you endure through all

Your soul bending but never breaking

Like a mighty mountain you stand tall

You rise like the brilliant sun every day

You change tides like the lofty moon

Your patience never waivers

Your words and thoughts cause swoon

When I hear your voice so lovely

And feel the tones wash over me

I take refuge in your porcelain skin

Lost in your blissful serenity

I have found solace in your arms

Where I want to stay forever

But we must both continue on

To fulfill each life endeavor

Poetry is flowing out of me!

Here is one I just wrote:

RAVEN

Raven parts her mouth in heat

Black feathers shining shimmering

Blinding now with eyes ebony

She turns her gaze to paralyze me

I sense her hunger, feel her heat

Taste her breath deep inside of me

With a word she steals my soul

Transforming me like crops culled

If she swoops upon me now

I have no defense against her prowl

Her appetite consumes me whole

She is sweet to me like profiterole

Succulent her fruit it dangles

She spell binds me into tangles

I don’t ever want to be free

From her hands, her voice, for eternity!

I just wrote a poem.

I have been so focused lately on writing and publishing my novels that I haven’t written a poem in a while.  But I just wrote a poem, so here it is:

“Higher”

I’m sure I saw an angel today

She glided with grace, clad in white

She smiled at me more than twice

And bent her gaze upon my face

I felt the hand of God descend

Instilling in me the confidence

To remain open to all powerful ends

And never stop believing in things

There is a higher purpose than me

Something that’s bigger to see

A calling that stirs within my being

That ignites my soul to higher seeing

So when my life is said and done

And I’ve made the most and won

It will be said of me the sun

Has shone on me and much has grown

My life has produced a wealth of things

Accomplishments that shine and sing

So many peaks that I have climbed

Make my life fulfilled and sublime

I usually write novels, but today I wrote a poem. I hope you like it!

CONTROL

The hierarchy of nature seems

In nature and in life to be

Run by a conductor unseen

And in many ways it is me

(As if by some magic or simony).

When the unseen hand changes the tide

And sets the sun below the sky

And all of nature returns to hide

And the Zephyr in the breezes sighs;

Reminds me that within my life

Whether in my sports or my child

Either in the classroom or the type

I direct the events in the books I write.

Though many things I can’t control

With each storm and wave I roll

Yet when the chance comes to my soul

I direct the chimes the bell tolls.

Knowing what and what not to do

When I can rest and when to move

Is a gift not many can prove

To have and yet I surely do!

It was Dylan Thomas who wrote, “Wild men…

It was Dylan Thomas who wrote, “Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight, and learned too late they grieved it on its way, do not go gentle into that night.”

I took this as an inspiration to not go gentle into any situation, meaning that I will not give up or give in, I will always strive to succeed and better myself, to do kind things to my fellow-man, and only compromise if both parties benefit good and reap a fair result.  As I look around me at the Spring, with the new saplings, flowers in my garden, fresh, young leaves and buds on the bushes, plants and trees, and all the world bursting into life, I can’t help but be filled with energy and inspiration!  I look up at the bright blue sky and can feel and smell the warm sun, and I Spring forth into this new season and new period in my life.  Follow me!
