Gracious Days

DrowningA pleasing thought
of you

teases

reminding of this lost
thrill
still
perched in the soul.

Only silence
knows how to be a shadow
in this graciousness
of days.

I balance
in bountiful splendour
‘neath clear blue skies
and beloved water flow

Reminded of
what was
reaping wisdom from pain

aware

of nearing worlds
in other kaleidoscopic spectrums

whilst subsumed in
Earth’s gentle unfolding.

Silence

3In profound silence
I find answers
to wordless questions
and watch a string of lights
glow
around this heart on fire
revealing all its passion.

What you’ll never know
is hidden in these depths
of quiet surrender.

Today
I sipped a pleasing voice
tasted its sweetness upon my lips
as fine as wine
and wallowed in its musical cadence
flush in the warmth of
a smile to keep and, then to share.

Those empty promises fade
into the ether
of some other netherworld

And I…

I play the game of life again
to win
with reckless charm.

A Miracle in the Making

imageToday I saw a sunset
like I’d never seen before
and a red sky at night is
a shepherds delight but…
no shepherds were needed
to gaze upon this sight.

The sun opened its mouth
across the horizon
(an amazing fete
to reach out from so far
and kiss the Earth with
passsion).

And I too was caught
in the glow
awash in all her colours!

Colours that I’ve never seen
splashed clear across
the sky……

Perhaps it was our Creators
way of saying:

” LOOK YOU ALL…..FOR HERE AM I “

Paloma

9a86c68416d2f3e065239d3f48bd5783In Spain I am
Paloma
I am the peaceful dove
tasked to fill this world
with friendship, warmth
and love.

Whispers on the wind
carry me to nowhere
take me in the music
in the silence of a breeze
flying
high above the mountains
and those deep blue seas.

See me spread my wings
above this place called
Earth
accept my warmth into
your soul…and teach
you of your worth.

I am
Paloma
I am the the peaceful
dove who flies both
night and day
watch me as I fly….
you too can
fly
your way.

Sharing the silence

female-face-silhouette-stencil-4leftIf you’re weren’t the one
then I’ll colour my world
from the dream within.

Some days I shudder at
how fragile we are

At times I’m the sun
other times
its shadow on the
ground.

The spirit in me
is timeless and free
and…

I really like my
kind of rain.

I’m not turning circles
anymore
But will still turn
ripples into waves

I don’t have unreal
expectations

but

If a Fallen Angel passes
through my room
maybe I’ll taste her kiss

and

If you’re the Angel on
my mind
then, I’ll see beauty in
the divine
as we breathe
whilst
sharing the silence.

Softness of days

34928113ea4a73c3d56f455d09e68182-d41knvrFinding strength in silence
where others may find madness

I revel in its calm caress
as a lover shares
the softest kiss
the softest sigh

the softest gaze
in the softest eyes.

After the thunder
and lightening passed

a storm which left not
even a trace in
teardrops

I bathe once more in
the passion of life
and
the softness of my days.

Mata Hari

With grace, charm and seductive moves which
also moved her audience into unbearable frenzy
she had European upper-crust eating from the
palm of her hands

Like willows in a breeze their fever
for her rose, ready to explode as she
removed herself from sheathes
of loose, undulating clothes.

But soon other real charges were laid
no mending fences between
warring factions and, no defense
on her behalf was made by
countless uniformed lovers
on all sides of the war.

Leaves rustle as a dawn firing squad
stood in solid line
Twelve men, brittle, unbending
as the sword dropped and, before
bullets whistled their piercing screams
Mata Hari blew them all a kiss.

Mata Hari’s story has always fascinated me.  That she was a consummate seductress and enjoyed many sexual relationships with multiple men in uniform is never in doubt but, it has never really been proven if she truly was a spy, a double agent, or not. Apparently there are secret documents that will be opened to public view in 2017 which may set the record straight about her spying both for the French, Germans and the English during World War One. Some say she was just ‘set up’ and that the man who could clear her name wouldn’t testify for fear of being arrested himself.
The French tried her as a spy, found her guilty and it’s said that she refused the blindfold or to be tied, she wanted to look them in the eyes and, she blew them a kiss. Who knows… she was one fiesty woman though.

You can read about her here Mata Hari or on Wikipedia
