Ever so gradually
full light returns
in flaming arrows- –
my heart excited,
begins to blossom
early for spring’s
glorious awakening.

Glitter- -golden
reds and blues- -blues,
sparks ignite
the simple things.
Snow settles
the awakening,
a letting down- –
                 falling down
freezing my early petals.
Sorrow
for the simple things
waiting- -anticipating
brighter days.  Perhaps
tomorrow will stay
a gentle while.  My heart
finds comfort in a fire,
hot chocolate and love.

Still waiting- –
stillness
in the simple things.

Yes, I know it is a few days early, but they go so fast.

I hope the dreaded writer’s block never hits you over the head.  May the new year be a block free zone for everyone.  My best of wishes to all of you.

I’ll pop in again once I’ve dumped mine.
Blessings.

Sideways looking- –
something strikes
my peripheral view.
In between the betwixt
– -twisted revery
my mind strolls through- –
just there
in the periphery it’s you,
striking brush strokes
across my mind- -making
a mark only infinite wisdom
leaves behind in distant galaxies
and unconditional love.

“This one is an experiment, I was just letting my mind free fall in the wind.”

Man surrender- -heated emotion’s
flash of lightning fire sparks
your eyes- -whispering secrets
you hide away- -I’ve never seen
a heart so guarded- -the locks have locks
bitter combinations and keys
swallowed with water
even Earth gives up treasure
now and then- -surrender the flame
it grows wild- -surrender

Tender fruit withers quickly- -a
delicacy should be reveled in
surrender- -share the fire- -gently
I’ll warm my heart in you
surrender- – savor sweet kisses

I’m yours anywhere- -licking
whipped cream
from a five o’clock mustache- –
snacking lips play games. 
Touch me- -tangle up my heart,
warm desire- -quickly
tuck me into you- -need
needs taming.

My hand in yours- –
one snow crystal in a blizzard.
I’m all yours- –

I slip- -you catch me
in the gentle rhythm
of your heart- -before

Your voice- -touch
– -delicate, passionate soul- –
fire and wisdom
complete me in ways
life alone cannot do.

I would
lose myself in you
                             forever
– -a blessing.
