The Song that Plays On #duetpoetry

Their bodies resonate with sound

a single note on the scale

longing for vibrato

clefs of desire

trebling in volume and intensity

reaching their highest height

an ecstatic crescendo

grand finale never resolves

a new note discovered

chord of fevered joy ~tremolo

concerto of two

your timbre entwined in mine

A song that plays on

Lately my co-author Sean Vessey and I have been on a writing roll. This and The Fuse popped on the screen after writing Quest for Titan for three long hours. It’s our traditional duet form; I will leave the reader to determine which line belongs to which voice. I did cheat by inserting  a couple musical terms I couldn’t remember.

The Lover’s Song #oneshotwednesday

Awakened in the morning

serenaded by my favorite sound

“I love you so my darling

you are my heart’s desire”

***

Rambling through my day

softly humming my lover’s song

clinging to the phrase

“I am his heart’s desire”

***

A moment that I take

I dream of us awake

passion there is still

“you are my heart’s desire”

***

Prepared to meet his gaze

fragrance fills the air

reminders of my love

hanging here and there

***

Eyes caught in candlelight

there’s longing in my song

“You are my heart’s desire”

you are where I belong…

***

All That’s Left … #poetry

Hold your hand out – do you feel it?

Tentative drops

The first sign of the storm

Look up as they begin to cascade

falling freely faster

black clouds swirl in the stratosphere

sounds  terrify and thrill

pounding grows nearer shaking the air

light slashes through the sky marking its spot

tumult of water unstoppable

elements compete against each other to create a cacophony of sound

Will darkness ever be dispelled?

A silent interlude

Clouds hear their cue move along their path

yellow rays glow

flowers lift their faces once more

looking down you see a puddle

reflecting the end

all that’s left of me…

Through the Portal… #OneShotWednesday

Look with me through that portal there

A world where the sun never sets

Light scintillates playfully on crystal clear waters

New life springs forth ~ a prism of beauty and vigor

***

Look with me at the wonders of life

hands laced offering comfort and strength

sweet melodic words caught in the breeze

unceasing devotion spoken with sparkling eyes

***

Look with me at a vibrant love

slipping between the fabric of unquenched desire

passion is caught never let go

a magnificent beat echos in two hearts

***

Come with me to that place

where the sun never sets on our love

catch me and never let me go

know love in eyes that say “forever yours”

this is where I want to be

 

I will extend two invitations today. One to our growing poetry site at One Stop Poetry. We welcome poets to share their work and get feedback.

 

The second to read the prologue of my novel The Quest for Titan co-authored with Sean Vessey. I have collaborated in the past – when it works the words flow. Sean is a fantastic person to share ideas with ~ this novel is writing itself ( practically).

Thanks to each of you for your support, encouragement and inspiration – you keep me going each day as a writer.
