Poetry: Over Shadows Ruling

Poetry Over Shadows Ruling

Poetry that I have written for my lovely wife, Rebecca. Presented today for the first time anywhere! Visit her blog at My Faces of Life.

Subtly emerging through dawn ascends
silently advancing in cold morning mist
solemnly relieving sentinels of darkness
dour guardians retreat their duties done.

Sovereign resplendent steady she eases
an ancient inviolate purpose so timeless
the sage hot sun resolutely commanding
swiftly brightens satin gray wistful skies.

Black legion of pools swiftly imprisoned
hostages of the growing light and heat
sentinels beset besieged by maneuvers
superior forces their capture obtained.

Bright illuminating over shadows ruling
whimsical sun seeming in her dominion
still resolutely ruling eternal the darkest
among the far hidden regardless the way.

Poetry: Swift To Hell

Poetry I have written for my wife, Rebecca. Presented for the first time anywhere. Visit her blog at My Faces of Life.

I shall lay waste to cities
fell mountains to rubble
drain oceans azure green.

I will melt arctic ice
eviscerate whole planets
shoot the moon dead.

I will vaporize the stars
pull the sun from orbit
tilt earth on its axis.

Aye, these things I’d do
to find the vile demon
that has harmed my love.

And if he should be
cold dead in the ground
lying there falsely.

Then to his coffin I’d go
crush him bone to bone
and send him swift to hell.

Poetry: Constant Love

Poetry I have written for my wife, Rebecca. Presented for the first time anywhere. Visit her blog at My Faces of Life.

There is much
impermanence
in this life
stars die
brilliantly
as they were born

life’s gift
but a moment
dread time
swift steals
color of youth

the great shores
from vast oceans
slowly slip
reluctantly
into their cold
indifferent seas.

But oh
my love
is constant
rules over
the death of worlds
swallows planets
whole
and will take
you with me.

Poetry: Apt Words

Poetry I have written for my wife, Rebecca. Presented for the first time anywhere. Visit her blog at My Faces of Life.

True beauty is all around
lovely things that make no sound
pretty sights which can be found
on this earth to which we’re bound.

True there are things which are sweet
when he and she distant meet
to scorch dread time burns the heart
never neither longs to part.

True, awe comes from many things
an elephant with golden wings
a snow-strewn path newly made
rows of pines in a winter glade.

But, of these things I write and speak
long I yearn and long do seek
about you divine most of all
you are Winter Spring Summer Fall.

Poetry: Reign Down

Open your skies
deluge me
with
your life
your blood
your pain
wash over me
soak me
with you
pour relentlessly
into me.

Rain down your
essence
replete with all
that bathes
your soul
all that is
your creation
that I might
drink you
swim you
wash carelessly
away
with you.
