how the bodice
black encompasses
your warmth
the red velvet
against your dark brow
and pale eye

we can feel the stream beneath
our bridge in forest dark
and hear her whisper

how its been Ive missed your
hands upon my coat
your words against my ear

in our glade
in our time
I wait

when I saw the title I thought this might have something to do with neo's own hood stranger lol

I salute anyone who breaks the rules in the interest of art and great poetry writing just as much as I admire poets who craft meter and verse within the confines of good grammar. Walk the tight rope or jump from it and see if you can fly.

the stitched searing sound of the love
is in the air

as the stream whispers
and the coat of fur thickens

in the damp of past fires
that poignantly smites

your(our) consciousness.

Superb as always Steven,
love Ann.

"The image of yourself which you see in a mirror Is dead,
but the reflection of the moon on water, lives." Kenzan.

mist beneath the lantern beneath the electric sodium glare

library only now
alone living now
time for thinking


postulations on the what can be
and all entwined are the trails
and paths

of the Museland Lair

articulated turns
and turrets of ruin
the moss drips
the creek speaks soft

the silence roars

author comment

Very beautiful

Words soft and serene,
They all say
I can never write poetry
As clean,
But I shall not abandon
And give it another try
I can't say why,
But I shall continue
To fly,
As high
As the embellished sky


Imagery is fab, cant fault it.

Love lou

Stand tall, be proud to be who you are, give the world the finger!!!!
