Muse

Aphrodite (Greek: Ἀφροδίτη; Latin: Venus) is the Greek goddess of love and beauty.
Aphrodite: Greek goddess of love and beauty.

Muse….A beautiful poison you are.

Seductive masks you wear so well
Play into feelings, then cast your spell
It has been noticed what you aspire
It’s to be the object of one’s desire
And those who’ve taken a bite of your fruit
Begin to starve, go deaf, and mute
To all the signs that bare your venom
Where is the antidote? Part of a ransom
Where spells cast will be unmade
And masks fall off revealing a face
But still a muse you shall remain
You and I…muse…we are one in the same

Tides

 

Brings to shore what hides in the deep
To wash away uncertainties we keep
And then exposes what’s left in the sand
To give an opportunity to begin again

Collect your shells and write your name
But be prepared for the tide to claim
What you’ve shared and let go
Only you and sea, will know.

Confessions of a Daydreamer

IMG_8755

Staring into the world
Internalize what I see
Allow myself to feel
The Joys and tragedies

But when it gets too heavy
Retreat myself away
Seek and find idealism
Daydream of better days

Days in a universe
Parallel to all that is
Where manifestation reveals
A world of love and bliss

A daydreamer, that I am
With humility, my confession
I’ll be the change I would like to see
Create it with compassion.

The Sea and Me

Gaze into the far horizon
Where you meet it with a kiss
Waves dance to your rhythmic heart beat
Shore prepares not to resist.

Looking out to my horizon
Not a clue where it may lead
Trust it’ll take me to the places
Where my heart would like to beat.

In your depth a mystery lies
Wonder what is kept a secret?
With an unprotected vastness
Is what’s hidden what is sacred?

What you choose not to reveal
Also lives inside of me
Guard with love all that I treasure
Secrets, dreams, and mysteries

In adoration, I confess
Feet in sand and eyes to sea
Salt breeze playing with my hair                                             In this presence I AM free

Land Mines

Peak into this pensive mind
Watch your step…clutter’s covering land mines
Working on sorting through
What to keep and what to bid “adieu”

Of course, once cleared,
The land mines will appear
And It will be up to me to figure
How to navigate this surface of potential triggers.

Introspection will aide in this task
Bringing along perception’s mask
To guide in seeing the different sides
Of these, now uncluttered, land mines.
