Dream Worthy #King #haiku #photography

a dream

In the beginning

a world created

“it was good”

*

slander, hate, murder

light of perfection turned off

dark haze

*

silent words believed

held close to the heart

centuries old

*

written in stone

read in eyes young and old

carried by a wave

*

hands of time

seasons move along

many share a dream

*

Dr. King was a visionary who saw the world the way God had created it. Men were brothers with each other; there was no enmity. King had a dream to see wrongs righted. We celebrate this great man whose vision was given by God.

Sharing with Carpe Diem “Use a quote”

Touched by a promise #haiku #poetry #photography

This month we have enjoyed the inspiration of Gary Gay and his beautiful haiku:

touched
in the darkness–
by a snowflake

(c) Garry Gay

fall leaves heart

touched by a promise

hope flutters to earth

shaped like a heart

Thanks to Kristjaan at Carpe Diem who delights us with challenging prompts

Dawn rises

blue fire in your eyes

warmth of spring

brushes against your skin

Sun sets

golden-red burnishing your heart

cooled only by love

the heart to hold within

split stone

A day not so long ago

you looked into me with intense eyes

honesty probed my split heart

you hid not in mystery or guise

***

A day not so long ago

your fingers wrapped around mine

strong support with kindness

I lost all count of time

*

A day that seemed not so long ago

your love melted this torn heart

stitching back together hard edges of pain

that’s where we made a new start

**

A day that seemed not so long ago

a gift was offered to me

amidst a waterfall of tears

your open love and honesty

and I took it

You receive a gift that  is bittersweet, it makes you nostalgic. What is it???

The above is today’s WordPress Daily Post prompt.

Inspired by Burns and a rose #poetry #Burns

Fallen Rose

A Red, Red Rose
By Robert Burns
~~~
O my Luve’s like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve’s like the melodie
That’s sweetly play’d in tune.
~~~
As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I:
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry:
~~~
Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun:
I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.
~~~
And fare thee well, my only Luve
And fare thee well, a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho’ it were ten thousand mile.
~~~

Inspired by a Rose

by L. Moon

~~~~~

My love is like the rose

red are  her lips that speak

soft fragrance on her skin

I wish to breathe so deep

~

She is so fair my dear

her eyes they becoken me

deeper than blue sky

foamier than the sea

~

I cherish you  my heart

true to the end you’ll see

on one knee I did ask

loving devotion thou didst read

~

I bid thee now farewell

yet for a little while

It cannot be too long

my world wrapped up in your smile

Gone Away #poetry #napowrimo #photography

Ivy Heart

Like the Dawn’s mist you came into my life

Then vanished taking your colors of love with you

I waiting hopefully at the edge of time,  your wife

Like the Dawn’s mist you came in my life

I waiting patiently urging away loneliness’ knife

 In the sky I saw in the middle of orange and blue

Like the Dawn’s mist you came in my life

Then vanished  taking your colors and me with you

Get the Point #poetry #photography #womenofhorror

the very point

One moment

you find me

weak, vulnerable

*

Circling in

tightening the knot

beneath hooded eyes

*

Exhalation’s drops

caught in sinister scowl

 delighting in pre-victory

*

My only move

I execute

straight through your heart

This poem is dedicated to all the ladies who write horror – check out the line-up over at Siren’s Call. Please Visit Blaze McRob’s blog and tell him one of the Women in Horror said “Hello”
