Life’s Wine

Through all of time

we have tasted life’s wine

richness of deep nights

sweetness of sunshine days


we drink all of it in

intoxicate ourselves with each other

savor who we are as one

If we never stop searching

for sips of divine love

every minute will be worth it

His Scarlet Rosebud


He caught his breath…

there before him

his scarlet rosebud

amid all others

donned in basic black

strength in her beauty

softness in her smile

still so much left to blossom

in his hands–

He walked over

bowed slightly

touched the small of her back

and the dance began

Crushed Dreams


At her feet

crushed dreams

fallen from

her heart

where once upon a time

each beat brought

happiness, fulfillment

energy to the soul

hope, contentment

smile to her face


just broken pieces

scattered trash

thrown away

to die

Somewhere Girl


I am

a somewhere girl…


in-between everyday thoughts

behind dreams’ shadows

atop soul’s hushed yearnings

under sentimental heartbeats


I am

a somewhere girl

and it is in the somewhere

I come to life.

Snowfall of You


Underneath my heart

hides the snowfall of my mind



fragile thoughts

I cannot stop

from falling

cannot stop

from blanketing my soul

cannot stop

because each one

is of you

patterning my life

with beauty

reminding me

each moment with your love

a unique, rare gift

only the Heavens

could grant me
