Familiar wrinkles

Smiling dimples

Eyes that glisten blue and bright

Finish your sentence

Thoughts are blending

Into the darkness of the night

When we meet

Hearts that beat

In sync as eyes lock again

Dancing minds

Ideas and rhymes

As we meld again my friend

Almost there

I cannot bare to get my hopes above

This dreaded curse

Of COVID news just kicked me in the guts

We planned the date

But realised fate had intervened, rolled the dice

To be in your aura

Would’ve been better than nice

The sun is shining once more

You’re playing peek goes boo

Haven’t you worked it out as yet

As clear as the sky is blue

YOU are the one that’s missed forget the other boys

Give the babes a little sugar

And leave them with their toys

So now it’s left for all to see

The heart here lays open

But the better man you are

A closet remains unspoken

Thank you for your visit this morn

It meant the world to me

Shocked at first I was of course

But then remembered to breathe

I recognised the hat

As my Nonno had the same

The mask you wore of average cloth

The lips beneath abate

Eyes lowered but filled with thoughts

We recognised at once

It felt like years have passed and dreams have stopped

But it’s only been a few months

Thank you for filling my senses

Just like Annie’s Song

You heal me and love me more than words

Tell me I’m not wrong

I’ve missed you so…. and prayed forever

You’ve come again in my need

How do you know Is it my quiet

That leads you to come sought me?

How deep

The depths of your love

Knows no end

Encased in all that’s pure

Regardless how it ends

There is no beginning

Nor shall ever stop

For I shall always bask

In your glow it envelopes me

Healing me through and through

Ridding me of all that is blue

These times are so tempestuous

But I can always depend

On your love for me

There it never bends

I’m always in your debt

For you are my friend

This I’ll never regret

For I love you and love to love

As a circle with no end

I’ve avoided you

Mr Blue

You’re wants and needs

Your voice too

Your smile

Laugh

And baby blues

Silver hair

Fingers too

I’ve avoided you

Moved forward

The pain I felt

Mentioned their names

Saw mine and glanced away

I’ve avoided you

Just as you did me

I get it now

Was never to be

I’ve avoided you

And moved forward

Got a degree

That I am proud of

I wish I could share

My wonderful news

Someone to grow with

And wonder with too

I’ve avoided you

It broke my heart

This rope is so thick

It won’t tear apart

My locks are yours

I cut them today

I know you like it this way

Short and natural

Below my ears

Swaying and bouncing

Without any fears

On the floor

A mess on bare feet

I picked the curls up

Heart skips a beat

Oh no have stuffed up

Looked in the mirror

Who was that girl

The COVID hair

I’ve given the whirl

And hurled them into the bin

Just like the tragics

Filled with sin

Light and white

A story there, do tell I love your stare, open smile, it’s been a while, conjure thoughts, lesson taught, you are my star, from afar, teach me more, you are the Earth , I am the fire, Heavens above, I never tire, Of your words, I drink them in and so it goes you are my sin …

3.30am

The waves crashing against the shore, Wind howling as the branches tore, of the tree above me, Will I go no I won’t leave, I’ll push the boundary we call luck. I’ll stay put with my junk. This junk I own the last of stuff. Before I had more but now it’s tough. The beach is my home, the trees my shelter. No debts or loans, yes life is sweeter. So I’ll stay here until the morrow when daylight comes there’ll be true sorrow….

Another year

Without you

Another year

Dragged

Another year

Dropped a bombshell

Heart is snagged

Another year

Tears have fallen

Another year

Winter drawing

Another year

You are older

Some may say wiser

Another year

Without a mentor

Another year

Time to be gentler

Shall we dance 2

Cuckoo sounds

Curse the day we met

Forever chained

The string is blue

Another time

Your words were true

The song now plays

A different tune

You clutch again

And spin me through

cyclonic fields

Of words and laughter

Madness thoughts

Of pearls and clutch bags

Ballroom gowns

Neckerchiefs

Men with long hair

Clefts in Chins

bow before me

Eyes of arrows

Heart’s-the target

Fly like a sparrow

Grab my waist

hold my breath
