red rose

How many loved you

the way I did

 shadowy our days

 wings of abandon

beneath the crashing waves


how many loved you

listening for your step

on lips we sipped and grazed

moon light in your eyes

melting in your gaze


how many loved you

picked away the thorns

begged you back

petals plucked  away

you left the soil to crack


how many loved you

willing your return

have to staunch the burn

no beauty in your leaving

but pain we have to learn

Telling him with a kiss (poem)

She opened her lips

to say something

his fingertips pressed

gently against them


His eyes spoke for him

stating what he wanted

“It wasn’t that important,”

her eyes twinkled


A playful question

sat on his brow

“but if it’s important

you should…”


Her lips caressed his

telling him

what she needed

to say

The Kiss (pre-Valentine warm up)

It was meant to be fun

became more than that

an innocent kiss

laid my heart out flat

What was I thinking

what were you?

do you realize something happened

or do you not have a clue?

That kiss was playful

full of mirth

deep and sensual

not of this earth

I love the way

you look at me

as if my lips

played a symphony

Can this last

lets hope and see

where the kiss

will lead you and me


Looking ahead, without looking back (too often)


Thanks for following a cowgirl on her crazy life journey.
