Poem: Dance of Death, Dance of Life!

CrossWhen love died

We danced the dance of death.

We buried her in a cold cemetery

and sorrow weaved a bitter-sweet symmetry

of hopes lost and dreams forgotten,

#17. A Lover’s Sonnet

Day 1. NaPoWriMo- Celebrate Poetry, All Month Long!

So I’ve taken a leap of faith and I’ve decided to participate in National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo), so help me God! 🙂

April is National Poetry Writing Month! NaPoWriMo, or National Poetry Writing Month, is back! To participate in NaPoWriMo 2014, write a poem each day this month.  NaPoWriMo is an annual project in which participants write a poem each day in April. It unfolds in the tradition of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month, held in November) and motivates, inspires, and engages poets of all levels, genres, and backgrounds. NaPoWriMo was founded by Cheri Lucas Rowlands. 

Poem: A Lover’s Sonnet

I seek you and long for you as I would the very best parts of me

Let’s discover this rhythm between us, and learn its sacred dance

Take me in, deeper and deeper still, into your mysterious trance

I feel you, always, in the lingering caresses of the flirty windy breeze

Let’s ignite our passion, unleash its fire and ice, this power to melt and freeze

Today let us fight as lovers do: and as I writhe and moan, pierce me with your lance

Against the fury of the outside world, let us battle to give this love a fighting chance

Joining our voices in unspoken prayers, for grace on our love to reign true and free.

Breathe with me, lay with me, and hold me for a fleeting second or

Gently, firmly, chain and bind my heart to yours, forever and a lifetime

Reach out and touch me, across dimensions of distance, space and time

I see you clearly reflected back at me through my soul’s mirror

As I inhale your spirit and wait for a heartbeat and a sign

And feel that age old ecstasy as you gently exhale mine.

This is dedicated to the open-hearted and broken-hearted, to the lovers and the gamblers, who dared to give love their all and always choose to love with even more abandon after every fall! May love always find you willing, ready and open!

 

 

#12. Welcome to Motherhood!

Welcome back!
May you delight in this new found world
Where the magic of childhood and motherhood
Becomes one and the same
Each day you’ll bask in magical moments
Short spaces of time before morning comes
When the earth is still fast asleep
