I Will Wait – poem

I was looking everywhere
for a sign
a moment
a time

As i look farther
the harder
I can’t see
I am blinded

It’s been a while
no, really long while
you were gone
but i am still
looking for you

As one day
I know
I will find you
even in the vastness
of the sky
I will wait
for you
DAD…
P.S.   Merry Christma Papa …wherever you are

Sensual Aftermath – A Renga

A Writers Anonymous Collaboration

Wherever I go

Old melody of our hearts

Murmurs autumn hymn

The songs we heard and we sang

Break my heart and cause a pang

Once soft, sweet whispers

Like spring, holding me in thrall

Now silent, your voice

Our song is played everywhere

My heart is sore with despair.

We stayed up all night

Talking like we loved to do

Then knowing crept in

Things would never be the same

I miss our forgotten flame

View of broad shoulders

Really gets my heart pumping

But you are long gone

Your absence brings so much pain

I long to spot you again

Rough stubble chin rubbed

My butter soft skin, blushed

A forgotten summer

Saturated throbbing aches,

Now my untouched body shakes

Laundered love flying

Our gathered smells, on the line

Blow the funk away

Forgotten shirt, traitor nose

Exhale! Let it decompose!

Coffee, steaming black

Inhaled with cold winter pine

My nose sought your neck

Now those pungent smells disgust

A sniff relieves me of lust

Loving you was sweet,

Mouth-watering, savory

Your kisses to me

How long it’s been, me waiting

To say it, so long Darling

After the success of our original post, our Writers Anonymous Collaborative (WAC) doubled with the addition of Jenna (TheSunshineArtist), Mich (michnavs) and Kate (calmkate). At this grand meeting we decided to write a renga, a linked poem created by different writers taking turns writing a haiku followed by a couplet.

Our collaboration was inspired by a poem written by Punam about how songs can trigger memories after a breakup. In the comments we discussed how smells and places can also bring back those painful (and sometimes painfully delicious) memories. And thus the idea to use the five senses to write about experiences after a breakup was born! Since there were six of us, Gina, suggested including the 6th sense, intuition. Fortuitous fabulousness ensued! Ah – serendipity!

The enthusiasm of this lively group of writers is infectious! In one day, we had the first draft completed. The final draft would have been approved sooner if we hadn’t been sidetracked by all the fun. To complete this endeavor, Jenna created a unique image that visually captures our story.

Out of our need to write, this collaboration was a hands up, eyes wide open, stomach dropping, feet bracing roller coaster ride of exceptional, empathic wordsmithing. I loved every minute of it and screamed my head of quite a few times as these lovely lyrics came together. I am so sad this ride has ended but can’t wait for the next meeting of Writers Anonymous.

Heartbeat (double haiku)

Every key you strike

Is the fast beat of my heart

Tugs up back to you

 

The melody hum

Is my soul’s deepest lovesong

Carry on my love.

Little Things (double haiku)

Every little thing
you do is what makes me fell
so in love with you

Oh, where have all those
little sweet nothings by now
miss them don’t you know?

Friday Foto Fun – Little Things

Here is a beautiful song that says..

Little Things
(One Direction)

Your hand fits in mine like it’s made just for me
But bear this mind it was meant to be
And I’m joining up the dots with the freckles on your cheeks
And it all makes sense to me

I know you’ve never loved the crinkles by your eyes when you smile
You’ve never loved your stomach or your thighs
The dimples in your back at the bottom of your spine
But I’ll love them endlessly

I won’t let these little things slip out of my mouth
But if I do, it’s you, oh it’s you, they add up to
I’m in love with you and all these little things

You can’t go to bed without a cup of tea
Maybe that’s the reason that you talk in your sleep
And all those conversations are the secrets that I keep
Though it makes no sense to me

I know…

Those Days

20181116_190221

you strum the guitar softly
and wrote songs with great melody
the crowd was cheering joyfully
your band playing rock n roll gently

those days, oh those thrilling days

we exchanged the sweetest hellos
and the saddest goobyes
the passionate and endearing kiss
lingering gaze, i remember always

those days, oh those enchanting days

your melody was my second heart beat
and your smile was romantic,
promising and charming

those days where the sweetest of you

Tomorrow-poem

If tomorrow is another day
and that tomorrow will come for me

Will you be delighted
or will you be crestfallen?

“Another chance”
maybe, you’ll say.

But if tomorrow is another day
and that tomorrow won’t come for me

Will you be beaming with joy
or will you be feeling blue?

“A sweet revenge”
maybe, you’ll say.

Safe Haven -poem

the spattering and splashing of the waves from the ocean striking and surging every movement

is like a dispute rushing and rustling in my head comes back bigger and greater in every
descend

and as i lay my head unto your chest
i listened carefully to the silent beating of your heart

i am in a placid state, undisturbed, unruffled, waveless

you wrap your zealous arms around me
in a tender whisper you say “hush now my love, keep still”

there, in your loving arms i found my sweetest and safest haven.
