Under the Banyan Tree

Under the Banyan Tree



Well beyond the sea

Lauri sits under the banyan tree

She may be reading

Or writing

Perhaps meditating


She listens to birdsongs

The sigh of the breeze

Through the trees


She inhales the scents of nature

Surrounding her


She bathes in the serenity

In these moments of serendipity

That are hers

And hers alone


Under the banyan tree


I am simply waiting

For an invitation

To join her

Moon Smile

Moon Smile  (photo by me, taken on December 31st, 2017)

The moon is bright this night.
It seems to smile sardonically
at me
and tufts of brittle grass
in frozen fields of snow
while in the woods nearby,
its cold shine greets the bony branches
of skeletal winter trees.
Its spectral moonbeams cast shadows
under these sleeping sentinels.
So still and silent is the night
that footsteps crushing snow
seem almost sacrilegious −
a sin to spoil the stillness and the snow.

I turn my footsteps homeward
and as I do it seems
I feel the cold moon sneer
and hear a quiet sigh
from hushed and speechless sentries.

Free Fall

leave a comment »

Free Fall

As always

When we connect

I feel

I free fall into you

I am afraid of heights

Yet I am eager to jump

And free fall into you

I look in the darkness

I see nothing

I feel you

I let myself free fall into you

I feel the rain on my face

I welcome its living loveliness

I feel you

Gently coming on my face

Outside my window

The whisper of the wind

Beckons me to free fall into you

 As I so yearn to

I do

I love snow

You are the sweetest of snowflakes

I fantasize about you

Free falling into me

This free fall I so love

I never want to end

I will forego orgasm

If I must

Just let me keep free falling

With you

Eternally on this journey

Bubbles and Childhood

Bubbles and Childhood

Children blow bubbles
Creating carefree coloured worlds
(Spherical rainbows)
Which the breeze blows away
Towards the sun and sky
And evermore

Ephemeral worlds
As innocence and childhood are
In a world
Where children blow bubbles

Dark Dream

leave a comment »

Dark Dream

Dim dreamscape



Dark skeletal trees

Crows peering down

From a starless sky

Your face appears

Your eyes seem sad


You keep looking at me



Perhaps disdainfully even

Coal black icicles

Beneath your eyes

Frozen tears?

And then

The stark dark realization

I am looking at the mirror

In my soul

Those frozen tears

Are not from your eyes

But from mine

My heart melts with sorrow

The light goes out

And with it hope

I am not feeding the crows anymore

For there’s nothing left of me

Would You?

with one comment

Would You?

Would you like to walk with me

would you like to talk with me

though I’ve placed my bet


Would you like to dance with me

would you take a chance with me

now that we have met


Would you like to hike with me

would you like to bike with me

though the road is wet


Would you like to roar with me

would you like to soar with me

now we’ve paid our debt


Would you like to race with me

would you like to place with me

though we’ve not run yet


Would you like to weep with me

would you like to sleep with me

now’s no time to fret


Would you like to sail with me

would you like to wail with me

though that’s all we get


Would you like to fly with me

would you like to cry with me

now we take the jet


Would you like to bend with me

would you like to end with me

though we have just met


Would you like to fly with me

would you like to die with me

now the sun has set

In a moment’s lapse
At times
I leave

I am not
What I am thought to be

I live
An echo from the past

Full moon
Silver night
Soft snow
Fresh tracks
Scented spoor
Quickened heartbeat
Rush of blood
Within my veins
An instinct that will not be denied

I breathe
The moment

A wolf howls

I wonder

Am I really me?
