Tesni

Your lips
Pearly petals furled in pouting peace so perfect
Your breath
Mighty little puffs of feisty life against my skin
Your eyes
Bright deep intimate soul windows, soul hands which we hold
Your voice
Colourful melody on heartstrings of delighted vulnerability
Our hug
A warm snug weight, fulfilling my arms and chest

This Transparent Tumble

Accidentally,

Truthfully,

Those words, three…

By Lovers’ Lane.

I’d fallen headlong,

Not that I’d known long,

At least,

Not with my brain.

You’d had a head-start,

Caught unawares my heart,

And now?

Those three remain.

Secret Garden – For Hannah

A tremor, faint, in your expression

Joins your half answer to my question;

One foot out I slow, I know,

Restraint’s an early mist on your emotion

A catch in your throat shows your struggle,

Heavy dew, light bloom aromas muddle

And with one cuddle, the honesty flows

While hopes and fears you juggle

I’m honoured when you share your heart,

Wind me by the climbers in your mind

To find your childlike courage when tears smart,

You blink away the weeds that try to bind

Beyond the quaint exterior, pearly paint,

The Secret Garden’s not so hard to enter,

Spirit’s fruit grow, love right at the centre,

Your roots ain’t like mine, but that’s adventure

‘Fore now your friendship’s taught me many things,

Of bold and thorny challenge; real love’s tough,

Praise ringing through the branches as you sing;

You’re precious and these words are not enough.

Pearl: Anna

Pearl: Anna

Only a gritty life could produce such treasure.

The words again in case the picture is not clear.

Pearl

As a sun beam dances

Crisply through clear water,

So whispers He

Through His beloved daughter.

Her incandescent beauty;

The fruit of several years

Where gritty trials came,

Leaving precious souvenirs

Multitones of wisdom

Grace her precious words,

Radiant with perseverance,

Her strength is the Lord’s.

Touch – Mam

Subtle tell-tale creases outline your eyes

And my finger longs to linger there

To share the stories softly etched

Unbridled laughter, earnest trace of care

.

I press my lips against your rough worked hands;

I’m five again, and I can feel the chafe

Your palm, clean water on my back

I know its warmth, or yours, and I am safe

.

The very things that reveal your humanity

And seal the letters detailing your days

Singing boldly, shirking vanity

They warm my skin like summer morning rays.

Hurdle


Weary and lonely

Yet wanting to be alone,

Itching to fly

But energy gone,

Restless for no reason,

Excitement and dread

Quarreling, Sigh

I try again to clear my head

Frustration,

I know this lead

Is not mine to carry,

Don’t give in.

I tarry at the hurdle,

Pray.

Breathe in the Sweet Pea Sun

Win back the day.

The Details

I have pondered now

Painfully for a long time

I still don’t know how

Poetry treats!

 

Thank you Jingle and all!! :]

I couldn’t choose this time, so many great poems, so I’d love no nominate The Tickly Turtle!

And if i’m allowed to nominate more than one, then also Becca Givens  and  Cinnamon Blues :]

Fab, Thank you! :]

The Stance

Hot tears splash down my cold face

Which I lose the battle to compose,

Resolve buckles; I fleetingly embrace

The pain that follows the love that I chose

I took the risk of loving you,

The things I said I meant and I believe,

My touch, the laughter and my tears were true

And so this might confirm that I’m naive

Is it folly when fear sees a chance,

To stare it down, and instead choose to trust,

And on foundations of love take a stance,

Knowing vulnerability is a must?

Sacrifice sets true love apart,

You’d heard it said and in your head you knew,

But when it came to choices of the heart

You struggled to let selflessness come through

I’m sorry for not being tough enough,

Having fun with you was just too sweet

For me to want to call your bluff,

Though you’d no intention of deceit

I’ve prayed for you in many words and tears

With great hope cause I can see you’re lovely,

Let Holy Spirit take away your fears

So you can learn to be loved, and love fully

I hope you know I truly don’t regret

Investing in you, even with the pain,

Heavenly Father’s keeping the best yet,

And a precious friendship will remain.

Empathy for the Tempest Rain

Rain, out of control, pounds

Against the ground, the roof, the wall,

In a furious, childish rage,

Just by being himself it can but fall

And in that moment I empathise

With Rain, he can’t be helped, at all.

He’s raw, honest and helpless;

People hate him for causing discomfort

But we need Rain to sustain, we confess,

Revitalisation that we thought we sought

Rebounds in his self destructive passion

Having with our blind rejection fought.

Moderation’s fingers lack the elasticity

Or strength to reach round Rain’s temperament;

In places none, in others beyond plenty,

And Rain’s tantrum was never meant 

To invoke beholder’s pity.

Well if aloof Sun should happen to break out,

Remember, stunted would growth be without Rain.

‘Cause even if at first you like the drought

In the end you’d see it lead to Pain.

Your greatest gift

Fire-cracker Mam, Rock Daddy

The gift that’s equaled by no other

Which you have given me

Is that you love each other

Still.

Thanks Jingle and everyone, head over to the great poet shin-dig here!

 

Pretty taken by surprise here for getting that awrd, but gladly accept. :]
