Green

abstract-19363__340Eyes as green as emeralds, like deep hypnotic seas

Under spell in a trance, sending sparks through me

Electricity coursing through my veins, drowning in your eyes

Running through their verdant meadows, soaring their azure skies

Emanating sunshine while planets orb around you

Moon glowing in honour, why can’t your eyes see what I do?

Kaleidoscope

digital-art-1444990__180Red and orange

Green, yellow and blue

Indigo and violet

A bit of every hue

 

Illusion with mirrors, reflection of light

Symmetrical patterns emerge and delight

Like a kaleidoscope, your mood is erratic

First hot, then cold, so often sporadic

Ambivalent and impulsive

Unstable and indecisive

Your capricious nature so well I know

Personality which face will you show

Turn the cylinder and change the view

To see a different side of you

Riptide

The happiest, and consequently, the saddest day of my life, on the beach I shall never forget.

 

Specks of black and gold

Under the blanket

Where we made love

Footprints in the sand

Surf pulsing

Tide washes away

Any remnants of you and I

Broken seaglass along the shore

Sand dollar not worth a dime

Cracked in pieces

Pummeled into dust

Dunes of sand

Grains spiral and dissipate into the air

Hearts made of shells

Crushed underfoot

Abandoned tide pools

Castles crumble dissolving into their moats

Sun suspends on the horizon

For a moment time stands still

Then slowly descends

With one final kiss

Waves break in rhythm

Stronger grows the riptide

Pulled farther away

Out to sea
