I would tell you that your smile shines
like sunrise in the east.
But alas, they just cannot compare
When you shine twice as bright, at least.
the sun was a woman
blind, but sweet and bright
her lover was the evening
but she was clumsy at night

she hit her head on the desk
she swears she's a klutz and a mess
but the voice isn't hers,
it's dark and it's dirty,
but her love was always a speaker.

i will see you soon.

the sun was a lover
she hated fights with her lover
she'd hide until it was over
she'd hide until he found her

the sun's eclipse was nearer
than anyone thought about her
she smiled and waved and cared for
the people who admired her.

she will see you soon.

she didn't tell her mother
for fear of her galaxy father
she wore her collars higher
for fear of her galaxy lover.
love her.
The good things in life seem to stay;
Like the color yellow, or a warm summer's day
Waking up early, running barefoot in grass
Feeling the morning dew brush past

Hearing the twinkle of an ice cream truck
If you go, you'll catch it, with luck
Eating a popsicle as the sun beats down
Riding a bike through a small playground

When dusk comes, once again
We're swimming at night and playing with friends
Lighting sparklers that shine brighter than stars
Popping cap guns you could hear from afar

Running barefoot right down the street
Giving the neighborhood dog a treat
Taking polaroids like the pictures will stay
But lost them then, by the next summer day

Watching as fog rolls slowly ahead
The sun goes down, so time for bed
Excitement and thrill, time for a sleepover
The day, for now, will never be over!

Karaoke on beds at the crack midnight
Crashes of thunder, scary stories, and fright!
Still, pretty soon,  we get used to it
For in the summer, it all happens quick

Never sleeping, don't want it to end
Even though there's the weekdays and weekend
Glowing lights hang above the bed
Sleepy eyes remind us dumb things said

Summer, now, doesn't last forever
Even if we must change the weather
We must savor it, you and me
And kiss summer hello thrillfully.
i'm so ready for summer! this is just a little peak how most of my summers go!
i wake to the auburn sun
that is dancing
in the cloudless sky.
sudden rush of air
carried morning dew
over my window panes.
over blooming flowers.
the time, a moment
to start things over again.
I wish to go swimming, you and I
In the dark expanse we call night sky
I'll pick stars like flowers for your hair
And watch your eyes reflect the glare

And then we can sail across the tide
Open mouthed and glassy eyed
The moon our ship, we'll take the stern
As I guide you through each twist and turn

Hand in hand, we'll voyage the stars
Stretching down to brush the surface of Mars
I'll adorn your fingers with Saturn's rings
And catch distant Suns to be our playthings

Then at last we'll dive back in
Our smiles revealing the places we've been
I'm content with my feet touching the ground
For as long as I'm with you, I'm safe and sound.
Coincidence is the hope of a non-believer.

Living in a house, in the middle of nowhere,
No noise, no commotion, just lots of fresh air.
Oh isn't this the life? A perfect holiday;
A perfect time, to get away.

The sad dark man with no hope in his soul,
Has now finally found, what he is looking for.
You’re not looking for love, but it's jumped up and bitten you.
How do I know this?  Because it's bitten me too;
But you are the cause for me being bitten.
Once shy; now forever smitten.

Speaking is hard and thinking is harder when you are high,
But I've been thinking of you, since I said my goodbyes.
Awaiting the day I see you and your peacock feathers raised high;
Every colour of the rainbow is all I see in your eyes.

It was hard to say goodbye, because I wanted to stay with you,
But if our future is together,
It's something I'll have to get used to;
But complications, have built a wall between us.
Only together can we bring it down,
If in each other we truly trust;
But you’re not looking for love, so what’s a brother to do?
I can't simply find someone else, when all I think about is you.

If you would let me in, to open your mind
And let you embrace darkness, you wish to find;
As well as the bright white shining light, you have followed,
Then two of us then, shall shine together.

The darkness has now passed and we’re addicted to the sun.
We love this warm weather; we love to have fun.
We love unbridled passion and satisfaction.
Can this just be a coincidence?  
Or is it just an undeniable attraction?

You make my heart purr, like a cat with the cream.
I love to sleep each night and meet you in my dreams.
It's a shame you only want, some fun and a fling,
For now I must leave and go do the whole mundane love thing.

i fell in love
and suddenly the sea breeze separating our fingers brought them together
suddenly winter meant warmth
suddenly the sun didn’t set, it rose
and it rose in my chest
and my cheeks turned the brightest shade of pink
i have never felt rosier
i fell in love
and suddenly the sky echoed back to me in starlight
suddenly i had never seen a sea of stars so poetic in the way they flicker back and forth to one another
light years apart but still wholly aware of how bright each other shines;
light years apart and wholly unaware of their influence and how it makes a sad girl feel a part of something bigger
something full of so much light and then
i fell in love
and you were a star scape
but you weren’t light years away
i have held stardust
because i have held you
and i cannot look at the night sky
without thinking about how it will never resemble the glint in your eyes when you smile
i fell in love
and suddenly my skin was softer,
so was my voice
i fell in love
and suddenly i melted into the stardust that resides in your bones, melted into the way you spell out poetry upon my body, melted into the way your glow beams back to the sun in the morning, sunflower
i fell in love with you
and i can’t remember the universe being this beautiful
until i realised
it resides within you.
i don't know if you know, but i am in love.

A butterfly may mistake your face for a flower
A bee may mistake your eyes for a blue bell
No wonder I'm so hooked on your smile
You're the only one

Under The Sun

A wasp would not dare sting you
A mosquito of course not
No wonder I can't keep away
We have just begun

Under The Sun

the moon
a darkened
plank of cloud
in iridescent
river of sky

the moon
the sun’s
round full
lake of fervor

the moon
the stars’
silver frosted
ocean of ecstasy


                        the moon...
A rerun of a poem from last April - though renamed.

April’s Full Moon, the Full Pink Moon, heralds the appearance of the “moss pink,” or wild ground phlox—one of the first spring flowers. It is also known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and the Fish Moon.
These names were not invented by The Old Farmer’s Almanac. They were used by early Colonial Americans—who learned the names from the local Native Americans; time was not recorded by using the months of the Julian or Gregorian calendar. Many tribes kept track of time by observing the seasons and lunar months, although there was much variability. The name itself usually described some activity that occurred during that time in their location.
