Dear Poet #poetry #sampler

‪Dear Poet‬
‪Let me sink in‬

‪To the way‬

‪You overwhelm‬

‪So I can do nothing‬

‪But inhale and exhale‬

‪The pieces of you‬

‪That have fallen from the sky‬

‪To nourish beauty‬

‪In my soul‬

Sweet Summer Surrender #junefalls

‪Soaking into my skin‬‪

In the sweet summer warmth‬

‪Sending a frisson along my spine‬

‪As nakedness‬

‪And shame drift aside‬

‪This rain‬

‪Shreds my facade‬

Like tissue paper

‪And I am home this season

In myself

Silent Storms #junefalls

She followed each rain drop

To the ground

And counted the seconds

Between light and the thunder clap

And kept her heart

Tucked carefully

Under the bed in a box

For fear it would be struck again

With the silence

That comes after the storm

Honeysuckle #junepoeticwings

The wind rips through the peace

Wrangling chaos

Flowing northward

Then spiralling back in a tunnel

Just soon enough

To let the honeysuckle flower

Grip its stem

Unable to anticipate

The winds next move

It just prays it’s allowed

To get to full bloom

My current view

Midnight Blooms #junefalls

He buried the midnight moonstone

And grew blooms

Unsavoury for days

Fragrant for the darkest of nights

But oh how they grew

Under the hand

Of the moon

Regal Innocence #poetry

Photo found on Pinterest

She is the child queen

Innocent of the jaded

Ways of love

And regal in her desire to uphold

The magic

She believes exists

Inside this eternal illusive flame

The Bloom #poetry


Love grew in the shape

Of dark velvet blooms

That bled when it rained

Sparkled in the dew

And pricked the hands

That attempted to steal her glow

She grew selfish for the sun

Raging when it didn’t show

And withered chasing the heat

That couldn’t staunch the flow

Of the madness inside her

When she went without


She just wasn’t created

To go without
