“Rumpus of Love”

couple-1329349_1920peer in,
peer out,
what is there?

is it you? tell me where;

sit and stay—
stay awhile.
tell me stories;
walk the mile

your eyes are warm—
they draw me near
hold me close;
be mine, sweet dear—

cotton candy clouds above
wispy, dreamy,
they’re in love

just those two,
right in our grasp
their love, like ours,
will never lapse!

oh, dreamboat!
you speed my heart;
it’s full of joy,
not torn apart

stitch by stitch,
you’ve sewn it new,
whole inside
without pure rue—

fancy, fancy
your eyes meet mine;
our souls forever
intertwine

and so it is
you now with me
our spirits reckless,
raging seas

a wave, a toss,
sweet love, we dance;
the perfect moon,
entrancing glance

i love you so!
you love me back
joyous romp
sweet attack!

buzz buzz by, firefly
your love for me
won’t be denied

and now, the night
is fully drawn;
hold me near
until the dawn.

the place

 

road_dreamin my heart
there is a place
that dreams
i hold it there
so tightly
i never waver—
in the times
i feel weak
i cling to it
i cling to the place
where my dreams
still
have life
i inhale,
breathe that place deep
into my lungs
i let it permeate my every pore
swell heavy in my spirit
bring joy into my heavy heart
thump
thump
pulse
pulse
surging
spirit, soul, collide
my dream comes alive once more

“Lost at Sea”

1006581927_084aa3ac9a

Lost at sea
I would love to be
no bills to pay
no phone to ring
no worries for me
let the waves lull me to sleep
nightly
the warm sun tan my naked skin
adorn me only with the salt of the sea
around me nothing but the calm,
delicate breeze,
and the birds of the air—
fish below, to and fro,
all creatures existing in perfect harmony;
all would be as it should be
I’ve been on this land far too long;
it’s withered my spirit;
I need renewal
I’m setting off now
Don’t expect me back

“Let it Go”

6281951891_61b8efce21

I wish I knew the way
to just let it all go—
Relax.
Believe.
Trust.
Scattered in my brain
Ache in my heart
Help me to be more like You.
Remind me that I have Your Mind
and Your Spirit
Walk with me Lord
Oh, how tired I am
I need You so
I know that You love me,
but I feel like I am failing
I am so scared
Please draw near to me

“Warmth”

5021713974_78efdc7e00_o

The warm southern breeze lifted
her hair straight to the sky
Her freckled nose cringed
as she let out a satisfying shriek
She could hear the waves crash below
The salt air pervaded and
Stepping nearer the cliff,
she looked down upon the couple
there on the beach;
their bodies tangled together in a mess
of sea and flesh
Love lifted up to her and
she sensed what they had
She longed for that—
to have that moment of
stolen embraces
sand and sweat
warm rays of sun
that wind whirled around her once more
just enough to bring her back;
she looked up to the heavens
and praised Him for this wondrous moment in time

“My Faith Will Abide”

3920209837_c9b20c11e1_b

In the stillness,
I think all things
I wonder and hope;
I believe that, the path,
once I choose,
will lead me right where
I need to be
Yet—
I am fearful.
They say to just “decide.”
Decide to move on
Forward.
Ahead.
Towards.
Never stop.
I am still afraid.
Yet—
My heart beats so loud
Like a drum erupting inside my chest
My ribs, they push out forward
Nearly to the point of breaking
All to allow room for the
fullness.
Thump. Thump.
Move.
Decide.
Choose.
And so I do.
The fear will subside.
My faith will abide.

“Solace”

 origin_3757441537

When the sun is setting low,

I find my solace there

wrapped in the cloak

of the cool night air

I pull my thoughts in,

and find a place to rest

near the wooded spot

just below the peaking crest

The clouds dance above me;

my arms outstretched to touch

your spirit there beside me

how I love it all so much

My eyes are feeling heavy,

but my soul is full of joy

This peace I feel within me,

no man could dare destroy
