When I saw you
I already knew
Science hadn’t told me
intuitive knowledge rests in my D.N.A.
Did I make you uncomfortable?
Or were there sparks short circuiting and jamming your brain signals?
Were you confused?
Unsure of how to proceed?
I wondered what you’d look like in the flesh.
Up close and personal!
You had me immobilized, tongue-tied.
My peripheral vision paid homage to your beloved face.
Casting furtive glances was all I could muster
You see I was afraid you’d see in my eyes
What I tried to hide.
Afraid to share my secret!
How could you not sense what I already feel for you?
I want to acknowledge what is written on the tablet of my heart
And stamped into every line of my body, pores and blood vessels
You’re already part of me, its useless to pretend or prevaricate
I love you!
Did you feel the flutters of awareness?
Our love is taboo
But by who?
We can’t let anyone decide for us, or interfere
With what has been written
Will you be strong?
Brave even!
Stare down opposition.
Will you follow the urging of your heart when it nudges?
Can you defy convention?
Are you a man of conviction?

Say it…

Everyone has something to say, some just say it better than others.I want to encourage someone today to follow that urging.Don’t let fear silence your voice.If you want to speak, do it.Circumstances, environment and people can try to intimidate you, will you let them win?I know it takes courage but try anyways.You know taking that first step means half the job is done already.I just read a twitter feed from Dr.Mike Murdock , he said something that really grabbed my attention.”The joy of others may be your passion but it is never your responsibility”.Everyone is responsible for their own joy, how freeing is that? Blessings!

The child wanders away from her parents
Her play-mate, the erstwhile butterfly now forgotten
As her curiosity propels her forward into the tree-lined glade
Her sudden presence startles a pair of nesting parrots
They take to flight in a cacophony of loud noise
Their bright plumage a glorious swath of color in the azure blue sky
The little girl stares transfixed in her bright yellow dress.

I first saw him on the wharf
He was sitting with some older fishermen
When I went to buy fish for dinner.
He easily dwarfed me
His mature gaze fixated on me, a beginner
He was no grinner though
My shy smiles were lost on him
I read the intent of possession stamped in every line of his countenance
Slowly the ice of betrayed love
Thawed from around his heart
And his inner light burst through
Now we sit side by side
A momentary snapshot of our life lived
Totally absorbed and engrossed in each others
Jowly smiles and sighs of contentment.

The moth and the flame

I don’t know why?
But a candle was lit at dusk.
The sight of the flame
Drew a wandering, weary moth
It played and danced in the shadows of the fire for a little while
His wings dipping in delight
At some point, he got tired or careless maybe both
His wings got singed and in he fell
Into hot melted wax!

In the cold recesses of a frosty night
The woman is awakened
By a slightly imperceptible bump outside
A frisson of awareness
Scuttles across her waking mind
The night is home and hosts to many a myriad creature
Some creepy crawlies and the unmentionables
Eyes heavy lidded from deep sleep
She reacts instinctively
The adrenaline pumping through her blood propels her forward
Time is slowly moving, stagnant in this moment
She pulls the lace curtain aside
And exposes the ugly stares of the dark!
