Now enter love,,,

Let my kind hands
Be the kind hands of love
Don’t let love
Hurt my palms anymore

I believe
I will love me
Through the vacant lots
And my lost heart

Last night
I dreamed of my marriage
And know I was
In the shadow of love

The fatal image
Of hearts
Touching
Even when apart

A love so strong
That we are buried side by side
We never leave
Each others side

As I wake in dark places
Most only see on sunny days
Beaches in snowstorms
Museums in the dark of night

I begin to know
That I am with me
And you will follow
Like a knight

Now enter peace

Now enter love

A Woman like Me

Once up on time
On the street in b’town
Rivers of roses
Bloomed in my front yard

I watched the roses in the mall
But, I had my own
In my front yard
Like pedaled rainbows

They grow like a path
For him to follow
And he sees me
Sees my thorns and my flowers

Let his love
Love a woman like me
Bring him home
To my arms

I put my fingers in his
Our palms touch
Everybody’s been there before
But him and me together

Let the words
Grow like a path
And let me rest
My illusions of love

Let his love
Love a woman like me
Bring him home
To my arms

He found me
He found me
And the blood from the thorns
Are the red of the roses

I wish I could
Remember
Of how beautiful we were
At that moment

Our faith in each other
The sun setting
The fireflies
Not afraid of the city

Let his love
Love a woman like me
Bring him home
To my arms

We were the children
Of folk and poetry
Even in our kisses
We remain the innocents

He reaches me
Even though I am
Torn and tossed
In love

He found me
He found me
And the blood from the thorns
Are the red of the roses

Once up on time
On the street in b’town
He loved
A woman like me

Forgotten

There’s a piece
Of time
Inside the jar

I gave this time to you
And locked it
Up tight

You’re gone now
But that jar
Has the air we breathed

There’s piece of
Red thread
Wrapped around the jar

It reminds me
Of all the love
I’ve forgotten about you

And the memories
In the air
Are left free

I smash the jar
A painting
Falls to the floor

And the red string
Is cut by the force
Of the glass

The air a memory
Of the love
I’ve forgotten about you

Full Moon

A little focus
On the rozes
With blurry
Around the edges
As the sun tips
Its hat
And shows
Some orange and pink
And candles
Put out candles
Watch the light
Sing
To the rozes
The scent
From their petals
Is strong tonight
They are telling me to
Make a wish on
This side of the moon

Pan up to the sky
Where the clouds
Are rozes and orange blossoms
And the perfume from the sky
Is fresh air on the breeze
The ocean spray
Makes lips
Salty and sweet
And the wind
Blows hair back
he sun go down

I wonder what the full moon brings

let your soul lead

all these people
feeling all these things
and the world
becomes alive
with voices
high and low
happy and sad
all around the town
voices of people
and the ghosts that follow them
begin to speak

they say follow your dreams
follow your heart
follow the steps
let your soul lead

all the rivers flow to the sea
and all your life flows
towards your dreams
feeling these small waves
push me forward
with winds high
and winds low
all the way down the current
a silver skipper
a golden slipper
the flowers in the reflection
the waves begin to push

they say follow your dreams
follow your heart
follow your steps
let your soul lead

the soul pulls you from the depths
wraps you in your blanket
the one you had as a child
and tries to wash all the waves
and the ocean looks
farther away than ever before
you’ll have to do it on foot
silver skipper tarnished
silver slipper
rogue and warn
and the trees sway and say

follow your dreams
follow your heart
follow your steps
let your soul lead

let your soul lead

The Hurricane

The storm has ended

The boats at sea
Bouncing in the night
Stars and moon their hidden guides
The windows let me see out
Kept me dry inside

The biggest universe
In the world
Like the storm
Pushes me forward
Tries to balance my dreams
With my basic needs

The last of the winds scream
by
I fall on the deck
And rest with the
Whiskers of the fish
Counted like lucky pennies

But with no value for the future

light and darkness play

not my pic
now I fall into focus
tumble to the spot
that writes deep
inside the mind
places where
light and darkness play

i fall into focus
down the hill
to the river
find the rain
deep in the current
of ideas and feelings

i focus
on the desert of sight
i climb out of a mirage
of muses to find the
sand, left over
thoughts, of the mind
