Pearl in Lace Dreams

pearl and lace

He watched her shimmer

a pearl in moonlight’s kiss

draped in lace dreams

vision of unearthly beauty

radiant as a sonnet

spoken in hushed tones

a woman whose soul

he craved to touch

with his own







His Sunflower for #Poetry Challenge week 91


Amidst lilac tufts

and rose petals

his lady bloomed

as the sunflower



brazen gold glory


to her own beat

in her own light

I used free verse as opposed to another form because that is how my writing flows and works best for me.  I admire those who can adhere to strict form!)

His Beautiful Gift

I watched the sunrise

awaken the valley

of her nude beauty

picturesque landscape

I have traversed and loved

so many morns and nights

and I thanked the gods

for offering me

nature’s most beautiful gift~






Another piece where I write from the point of view of a male.  I still like doing this and hope it doesn’t seem odd.  It’s just that I wish so many times for a man to feel, think, or act like my words. My guess is, many of you men do.  And women thank you for that.

Painted Pink

via Daily Prompt:

painting toes1

I watched her through the window


she didn’t know

she didn’t have a care

lost in her own girly world

painting her perfect toes

a different shade of pink

than last week

but always pink

like her personality

bobbing her head

singing along

to those country songs

she loves

and I have no need for

a picture of pure beauty

although she never thinks

that’s what she is


in every way

every day

to me

she is

(I sometimes like to write from a man’s perspective.  Maybe it’s because I’d like a man to think or feel this way.  Maybe it’s because I think a man’s viewpoint is sexy.  Maybe it’s because I wish someone would think and feel that way about me.  Whatever it is, I like writing from different perspectives.)
