Anticipations Poetry

Patiently

  The rain is pounding once again Relentlessly, a steely chill The beating down of crushing rain My spirits dim, a brooding pall   If only gentle rain would come To soothe my soul with promises To sweetly kiss my face Instead of slapping me its full frontal blow With searing rain that blasts my soul And conjures thoughts of desperation To run away to someplace else   Where sun would lift my weary soul And sunbeams dance upon my face Of love, of fairies dancing about A splendid sight to lift my soul To soar on wings of butterflies As...

The Lady in Black

  The Lady in Black Hauntingly beautiful The lady in black Exotic, ethereal, enchanting Floats along the grass dance floor Effortlessly, in the moment   Head erect, Chisled features A statue come alive Ballroom  style Waifting on clouds As Beatle’s music mesmerizes On the soft summer night   Dancing carefree The lady in black In a closely packed arena Amid families, Singing, laughing, dancing No one notices, Yet everyone sees   The Lady in Black Arms raised, ballerina style Deftly, elegantly flowing Gliding...

Ping-Ping!!

  I can hear your voice in my head. The gentle click, click, clicking Strumming away on my phone No discernible pattern evident   Ping, ping:  I love you! Ping, ping: Don’t you love the closeness, The deliciousness Of this  moment?   Pendulating, waning… Vanishing words Setting up the zig, Waiting for the zag The bubble of green …or blue Flashing like a ping pong ball In the volley of our lives   Ping, ping:  Just moved left Ping, ping:   Coming back the other way Ping, ping:  The white screen punctured Waxing...

The Lighter Side of Things

  A window view of lazy contemplation mirrors wistful longing Peek-a-Boo views of the still life beyond Soft gray wisps shuttle the lazy fog as it hangs about Effortlessly blanketing a coat of softness and steely resolve   Fog through tiny brown squares of screen creates a kaleidoscopic prism-- yet blends seamlessly into the landscape, unnoticed A consolidated dot matrix of dreams seeping through to mingle with still life, dancing on the silence of place   All of the dreams of a million years colliding in this peaceful place Through the looking...

Settling In

A peripatetic pace Stoking a desire to establish solid roots Punctuated by summers with grandparents in New England Comfortingly familiar   Hungry, For the best life has to offer Indulgent upgrades To classic traditions Boosted by marshmallows and hot chocolate, A wistful nod to home and hearth   One’s place in a graceful community Shaping a life around an appreciation— …Of old things, …Of good things   Breathing in steadfastly, Wanderlust averted Not settling for— But settling in!

C-ontemporary Jazz…..

The C-jazz reverberates, melodiously Filling the air with sax and horn--sweet life Pounding out the tunes, light, airy, raspy at times Penetrating— Lost in the arms of the beat Trumpeting my soul to yield Suggestively entrapping me in its rhythm and sensuality I commit myself, lost in the moment

Eating Ice Cream

  Luscious, creamy, brain freeze electrifying Cooling temperatures on a hot summer night My tongue, swirling  in streaks, circling round and round the cone Injecting warm tongue to sweet ecstacy   A minty flavor snares my nostrils sweet Teeth grinding into chocolate chips, over and over, up and down All senses heightened, lips and tongue engaged Eating ice cream, on a warm summer night.

I Shall…Not Should

Could I love you more? Could I, Could I Could, Could More, More …or Should I love you more? Should I love you, Love you, love you more? …or less, or less?? Greater than, or More  than? Could I, Could I? Not Should I, or Would I? Love you more, more? If I Could, Could Would, Would, Would love be stronger? If I Could, Could  love you, Would, Would I love you more? Maybe, I Should, Should  love you less than, Would and Could demand more of the heart And less of Should For Should, Should implies neediness! Where Could, Could opens possibilities And where long lasting...
