Love’s Desire

Salt laden breeze
strokes my face
tender caress
memory
eyes closed
lips parted
scent of you
surrounds me.
Tear
unbidden
rolls over my cheek.
Smokey dreams
fade with the sunrise
ache
deep seated
pretending all is fine
ruby red lips
creased in fake smile
eyes heavy lidded
shuttered.
Sand
streams between fingers
night scent
leaning back
eyes land upon gleaming star
and
for but a moment
I wish
my dreams to come true
love for me
love for you
a blend of two souls…..

Firelight

Star light

Star bright

I wish I may 

I wish I might

have this wish I wish tonight.

Staring at the skies above

reminded

how vast

how so large

the universe we live in

really is.

My eyes flit from star to star

as I wonder

which it is

that will grant

my wish?

I know the truth

I know wishes will not come true

from the cold white radiance

shining above.

I care not.

I wrap the night

a dark cloak around me

lost in the mysticism

of the firelight.
