His Scarlet Rosebud

scarlet

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

Breathe Permission

Dear Poet

Dear Poet,

Breathe permission

on my heart

allow its fullness

to spill onto pages

with passion’s force

pushing to heights

I only thought

a dream

Open its doors

freeing dormant years

behind bars of society

crying release

from painful incarceration

Bestow the gift of abandon

unrestrained imagination

pouring through pen

without thoughts 

of judgement

only thoughts

of the privilege

to exist…

Dear Poet,

Breathe permission

Painting- “Silent Prayer” by Anna Razumovskaya

Somewhere Girl

somewhere

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

snowfall

Underneath my heart

hides the snowfall of my mind

intricate

delicate

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
