Iridescent Forests

Drifting through the canopy
Barefoot from the tireless journ
Place your palms to the soil
Wait for the sound

Of fallen empires all wiped away
Blooms and creatures imagined
Stories that nudge the fabric of time
Overflowing the pages

Appreciate this feeling
The serenity of being
Differentiate the tremors
Pulsing through layers

Dust off the shadows that cling
Towers that ceased crumbling
Lofty ideals belittling
Seek only truth



Meet me in that space
Between stars they haven’t named
Meet me on that line
Marking safety and risk
Meet me when you’ve lost all hope
But still believe in miracles
Meet me at fate’s door
Where there are no accidents
Meet me where the sun doesn’t set
And every moon is our time
Meet me because you feel me
Aching to have you close
Nearer, nearer, here

Meet me where vacant
Is now full
Meet me in spite of every failure
Making you doubt yourself
Meet me at that moment of disbelief
Reach out to know I’m real
Meet me knowing every possible outcome
Isn’t worth never trying
Meet me in fields of inconsequence
We can roam and never get tired
Meet me in those silences of peace
Alive but still dreaming
Dearer, dearer, pure

Hook, Line and Sinker

Throw your line out to sea
Close your eyes and wish for me
Bait a fragrant flower on the tip
To pierce this delectable lip

Cast your net where the oceans meet
Your desire rouses me from my sleep
The love you possess serves as my radar
A worthy catch in any weather

Pull me in to the safety of your hold
The warmth of your care from the freezing cold
Savor me as your everlasting pet
A sweeter conclusion I could never get


Shades of green
Future yet unseen
Feet tap to a rhythm
Tears glisten

Diamonds on your skin
Love is worth the sting
Take the time to heal
Still rolling wheel

Fields of barley and wheat
Rebirth so sweet
Let down your hair
Believe if you dare


less effort, more feeling
less fuss, more revealing
less head, more heart
less noise, more instinct

That we would see eye to eye
In a crowd of distractions connect
Even a glimpse of recognition
To accept our fate

all revealed, sans deception
all involved, sans reserve
all surrender, sans conditions
all or nothing, sans excuse

It will be clear as daylight
Appearing as if from a storm
Eons lay wait for that moment
Our paths collide
