Beneath The Moonlight

Daydreamer

Under the gleams of your smile, I sigh,
As the sky hums

And the moon cast its rays
On our wriggling bodies,
A tune of love plays just for the two of us
Its lyrics fathoms the link between us
And we loose ourselves to its melody.

Your eyes are golden in the moonshine,
And am trying to calculate the gradient of your lips,
That enslave me with their grandeur
The cool breeze caresses our cheeks,
I feel your heartbeat in the darkness
And its thrums pound in my head
When I hold you close in my arms.
vio
Your violins calm my anxiety,
As you pull my strings with your charmy bow,
Sending my heart into a trance
And makes my soul dance to a jig of heaven,
I slip into happiness,
The stars twinkle in harmony above us
Witnessing the construction of our love.
A poetic radiance glow on…

Butterfly in shimmering light,

Garden blooming in new season.

Kookaburra, sitting, soulful –

Poignant is the far horizon.

Orchid flowers, life awakens,

The day grows ever longer.

Shadows present,

Sunshine alightens,

Prodigious is her effort, action.

Human in kind,

Love we find

In simple, pleasant things.

Far horizon, ever closer,

Droplets they descend.

Life, we wish to never end,

The day draws near,

We transcend.

Senses

Heartstring Eulogies

Feel the softness of my flesh,
without worrying about
the layers beneath
or the scars that mark it.

See the depth in the
cold stormy seas of my eyes
and hear the truth mixed with
the agony beating within my heart.

Taste my lips with abandon,
like I dream of devouring yours,
then I will no longer remember
to breathe anything but you.

THE WRONG BOOTH

keithgarrettpoetry

THE WRONG BOOTH

Innocently he walks in, a quiet night,

His thoughts are of the moment, he sits.

A cup of coffee as his eyes wander this place,

He is not comfortable as he watches those around.

There is little sound as he rests his weary mind,

Eyes are upon him but he will not understand why.

Approached by one he does not know, he reacts quickly,

Injured as he runs away, the wrong booth he found today.

A Night of Conflict

Head Lines NZ

Photographer:Barbora Biñocovà

a night of conflict

and i know that’s what i seem to
desire as a pyramid to tutankhamen’s
eyes lined with kohl and coal covered
fingers cupping flame to ceiling asking
asking what all those symbols mean
when everything can be taken
out of context and eventualities
which never quite eventuate
how you will it
to be

and i sold my palms
to the closest fortune-teller
willing me empresses and rivers
and rabbit-holes into my wonderland
where conversation is a silent motionless
enterprise of saffron and silk and
rustling curvatures implying
bodies dancing and living and laughing
and searching for the next
little thing

and i on the mezzanine and i
in a hallway circumventing solutions
mapped out by cartesian thinkers and notes
of endless misconceptions
given salt and pepper
to taste

i want all of this to crumble
for hieroglyphics to bathe in
green currents green…

Winter Lover

chyfrin

On that day
The snow fell
soft as vampire feathers
Sucking the warmth
from the lonesome road
Draining the sound
from the hissing trees
Drawing out the pain . . .

Memories leave footprints
in the virgin snow
Some seem to dance
some to falter
Some linger a moment
by the stream . . .

I try to whisper
to no living soul
But I don’t really
want them to hear
I want to cast them out
of my clenched heart
Want to bury them
bury them all . . .
Bury them in
the snow that falls
