I reached the summit

The quest for fame fortune won

I will vie for more

Visions – a poem

 

female in repose

Visions

Watching you watching me
Your gaze bold
Igniting the ardent flame
Scorches my soul

Flicker of light
Your eyes unwavering
  Seduction of the night
My will unresisting

Touch lingers skin on skin
Familiar terrain now foreign
Yearning swells within
Desire reigns

Lips in sensual motion
Devours possesses
Like alchemic potion
Demands acquiescence

My hands yours
Across valleys and peaks
Depths to explore
Quickening heartbeats

Feeling every caress
Kisses which ease
Every word coaxes
To be free, release

At last accede
To unimagined passion
Heights of ecstasy
Indescribable sensations

My heart dances once more
To rhythm of desires
As it seeks to soar
Across immutable spaces.

Mocking words

Mocking words

A tired mind
A weary heart
Bereft of words
Immobilised.

Stranded in space
Alone, forlorn
Mocking words sound
Pierce the wounded soul.

Shards of glass
Rains, punctures
Prisms of colours
Shielding its nature.

Illusions

Illusions shatter
Images are just that.

Who am I behind the projection
Of a desire, a need
Have I become a parody of
A self, seeking expression.

Am I more
Will I disappoint
Do these doubts reveal
A self fearful, unrealised.

Illusions vanish
Reality beckons.

A self contented
Flowing with the river
Floating, relishing
The rush of life water

Each moment complete
Each moment exquisite
Each moment a wonder
A reality that just is.

– FlorenceT

In the end

pen writing

In the end there is You and I
On those lonely nights there was always You
The light that shone my way forward
The inspiration that brought my smiles
My measure of time in You
 
When the cold light of day intruded
I am still amazed by You
Your clarity in the dizzy heights
Your faith in the remoteness of space
Your love in the connection of time
 
Without You and I, there would be none
My heart without rhythm
My mind without wonder
My spirit without flight
My soul without expression.
 
In the end, there is You and I
Meeting in quiet embrace
You whisper ‘you are’
And I know You are
This is enough.

Transformed

candle

In the embrace of words
I belong
Valued, understood
 
In the voice of acceptance
I relate
Assured, respected
 
In the vision of beauty
I am seen
Honoured, transformed

Reminiscing – Childhood

birthday wish

To celebrate I wrote you this poem:

Mum mum, oh so fine.
Full of manners when we dine.
Her smile oh so sweet,
I try to get things I beg at your feet.

Happy Birthday

 

Gift… from child… 6…

Love’s healing

kiss comfort

I shall gather you
Into the arms
Of love’s embrace

Let me ease the pain
Besieging you
With love’s pure heat

In anguish, you shall
Experience, grasp
A moment’s delight

In joyous respite
Remember, know
Love’s healing power.
