Nectar of a PoemΒ 

Nectar of a Poem

Have come to know, to taste, the sweet sweet nectar of a poem
From the thoughts inspired by emotion, igniting a fiery passion
A poet does brush with words, a picture penned
A canvass filled with life, breathed and owned
Submitting to images cut by a sword wielding verses
Lines as sharp as a razor and smooth like meandering rivers

Heart pounding horror, blood soaked terror, demons at night who rein havoc
Sonnets of ladies wearing bonnets, in gardens, placing flowers in baskets
The dark side of the moon, cries of pain, a lonely loon on a lake strains
The happy and cheerful, making us feel wonderful, a misty, that’s coloured magical
The hot and spicy, kiss and tell, mind blowing orgasms, screams of heaven and hell
Pussy Galore, Bonds’ sly smile, a pistol packed and ready to fire

Haikus and prose, free writes that excite, a form is a form not all can conform
Short or long, every word and line, no matter what, it’s fine
A poem is a feeling that comes from the soul, it’s breath beats a pounding toll
Pages written and ripped from the spine, tossed aside, more crap for the eyes
Rewrites and edits, credits and notes, sharing thought provoking quotes
Have come to love, to taste, the sweet, sweet nectar of a poem

Poetic Symphony


At dawn hear the birds sing when morning comes
The dew on grass shimmers by the sun
Ever so gentle leaves flutter with the wind
Lost in the beauty that fills from within

How songs tell stories with a soulful melody
Brushes stroke paint into images velvety
Dancers sway provocative, wet and sultry
A poet gifts a muse with a poetic symphony

Could love come knocking, wishful thinking
Knocking socks off, a whirlwind spinning
Dazed and confused the heart takes over
Smothering logic its hard to stay sober

I’m drawn to the stars how they sprout at night
Accompanied by the moon makes it feel right
In the comfort of its glow is like being home
Chasing dreams, a star seeds call to roam

Love So Mad


I want to push your buttons
Run my finger along your spine
Skim the nubs like a roller coaster ride
Up down
Feelings start to climb
Rising fast with a blast it peaks to the top
Tipping over a 90 degree drop

Stop…

This make believe rattling in my head
Makes it hard to get out of bed
Penning lines that sometimes rhymes
Just to get a rise
Widen your eyes
Make you smile
Grab you by the soul

Go…

Tilting left then right
The adrenalin surges, penetrates with might
This world drives insane, believing in heaven or hell
Who cares, make a mess, shake the ground, ring that bell
Oh if we could be, really be, what a mess we’d truly make
Turn this make believe into reality and ease the ache
To love so mad that the earth quakes

Hard


how the buzz from a hit of weed propels the mind to open wide…

I have felt pain, who has not
I’ve cried hard to the point of passing out
Struggling to breathe in air
When lungs are weighted down by a heavy heart

I have felt love, who has not
I’ve awed watching lovers holding hands
Inner tears fill the throat
The swallows hard, trying not to choke

I have felt sadness, who has not
I’ve sunk down low enough to call it quits
Thoughts, exploding in my head
It’s the hard that drives the desire to carry on

Retired Eyes


A lonely castle built by Poe
Words upon pages flow
Hither, tither, to and fro
Hear a blackbirds crow
Carried by winds that blow

Please if it will, that I may
Tell of a tragic tale

The nights are cold in the city
Frost seething down on the ground
Shuffling feet, scraping beat
There ain’t no sunshine coming now
No, tonight the air wears a frown
Sadness comes from everywhere
It looks at you, it looks at me
Wondering, is anyone free
What if…
A glow in the distance grows
Light against dark, contrast
Turns to a blue, bright as a morning sky
With wisps of puffy white clouds
Hope springs, could it would it find
The sun shining through brings a smile
Survived the journey of a midnight mile
To seize the day anew
The yesterday, like the wind blew
No…
Just another pause in a time
That lets breath take in deep
Expelled with a final sigh
Slowly fades to black, retired eyes

Star Seeds


His heart pierced, the desire within is fierce
Journeys in time, to worlds near, far; how sublime
Riddles of life sought, defeats and triumphs fought

An ache inside thrashing about, the urge to scream and shout
Misplaced on a rock spinning round, velocity lifts from ground
Eyes closed shut, imagines an Eden through galaxies that erupt

A lost seed planted on this earth sprouted in birth
Shallow roots spread short, failed to hold from bitter frost
The want, no, the need to leave so great, consider it greed

Reborn in death, a path that leads to a new first breath
Like a distant love, the kind dreams are made of
As told in faerie tales through storybook fables
