bDandelion Moments

Those dandelion moments
Before they descend
Waltzing among breezes
Then gone with the wind

Beautifully arched rainbows
And warm summer rains
Fleeting like new love
And sips of champagne

Red roses in winter
Sipping Chateau Lafitte wine
Swept up in the moment's
With you on my mind

Honeysuckle's aromas
Mingling among summer light
Hummingbirds suspended
In the middle of flight

Drifting in on fairy wings
Hushed silence all around
Fleeting hallowed layers
Untarnished all around

Cuddling under the goose down
Whispering love in an ear
Clinging to you forever
Til' longing disappears

Those dandelion moments
Before they descend
Waltzing in breezes
Then gone with the wind

{Inspired by Fiona Davidson}
'Desire reaches out, delicatly tracing face, with fingers of love'

bDay Dreaming

I often dream of such places
Where solitude and lilac scented breezes
Usher me off on the wings of an angel
Among the hidden confines of leaves
Changing their colors with the wind
On lily pads ruffled by the August breeze
While bream underneath stir their beds
Drifting with borrowed light at dusk where
Martins swan dive and serenade meals
Listening to death rattles of pecan leaves
As squirrels scurry and scramble for nuts
Squadrons of crows circling in flight above
Cacophony of symphony echoing the sky
I often dream of such places

bDon't Wanna Die To Become Famous

I don't really want to die,
Just to become famous.
Wait until the last prayers,
Are said over me.
Just to let the whole world know,
I've got something to say.
And I am what I wanted to be.
Would prefer my available intellect,
Critiqued ad hoc, not in retrospect.
My fame finally determined,
While I stand tall and erect.
But so are the times, as with the judgement,
Accolades, and finally the laughter.
When I'm gone, it'll finally be known,
Only then, in the great hereafter.

bEating A Shoe

Staying the course, drifting in winds
No way this fool, shall ever win
While setting half the world on fire
Governing his people with cowboy desire
You come over here telling us what to do
Sending you back home quit discretely
While in your comfort, eating a shoe
