What are the dangers of dreams
Infernal fantastic tortuous schemes
The paths that lead to danger
Leading us to falling in love with a stranger

Life set, priorities to be met
Plans in place, moving apace, direction set
Train moving, tracks straight, becoming truly stulifying
All mapped, feeling trapped, not so surprising

Happiness comes and goes
Life has highs but many lows
Lows can breed dreams
What if – scenario scenes

Perfect life, perfect love just like in stories
That’s how life should be in all its glories

Life imperfect and love low key
Partners drifting apart, less connections beastly

Imperative – Need to find that perfect love
Daydreams sees it clear and corroborative
As the song says
you only live twice or so it seems
Once for yourself and once for your dreams

Sweet dreams, perfect dreams, dreams can deceive
Swinging so high, flying on the trapeze
Launching into space, Twisting in the air
Where to land, here, or way over there

Old path , new path just beware
Stop, think and compare
Each path has some danger
Dream path, love with a stranger

You only live twice or so it seems
Once for yourself and once for your dreams

Stars realign

A Villanelle

 Dark days become nights the stars don’t align

 in this nightmare world of retrograde time

Stare into the cosmos look for a sign

Spiral out of control, lost life’s design

You were my anchor now gone such a crime

Dark days become nights the stars don’t align

Need to find a new path draw a new line

Not play the fool, in futile pantomime

Stare into the cosmos look for a sign

Days feeling like weeks dreams seem borderline

My home no longer my haven sublime

Dark days become nights the stars don’t align

Break free from bad feelings must not resign

My love is worth more than a tumbling dime

Stare into the cosmos finding a sign

Love all encompassing, truly divine

waiting to find me, yours was a mime

light days become nights the stars realign

Stare into the cosmos yes there’s a sign

Lay your head

Lay your head on my heart

Feel the beats stop and start
Our mind pictures blending

the feelings we are tending

feel the warmth of my skin

it must be win win

Reach out to me
Feel the beats stop and start

describe your feelings

in this time we are stealing

a time free to care

we have little to spare
Lay your head on my heart

Feel the beats stop and start

Sharing Time

Sharing time with you

Makes me happy

       Respite from reality

A secret space

      Touch and embrace

Feelings of vitality

Wrap close around me

Like tendrils of morning mist

                          Clinging, hard to resist
Sharing time with you

Is the pinnacle of my week

            Emotional peak

From that first meet, kiss

The feelings of bliss

                     Engulf me

You feed my mind

I reply in kind

                Cerebral compatibility


The journey goes on

        The wheel of life turns

A new awakening burns

                               Thankful to see

New ideas to set me free
Moving through life

Things I can influence

                       Others ambiguous

              Must not waste time 

On things, outside my paradigm 
 Abundant and free

Use influence directly

                         Change the way I see

             Working on the me

Turn irritations to advocacy 
I choose love

                 of the self 

       of life not fixed positions

The journey goes on

Live aware till its gone
I am in awe  blown away

                             I am striving to

           Live life in the happiest way


Can you match me measure for measure

will you be sensitive to my pleasure

can you pull me, out of a web of distrust
you planted  seeds and nurtured their growth

cared so much, brought loving  close

new love new  set of feelings

exciting romance, to expunge past dealings
trying to trust and believe anew

wanting so much, for new love to be true

going slowly taking my time

hoping for partnership truly sublime
love and laughter, joy and gladness

honesty, communication, pleasure without malice

old love,  bad memories  thwarted

new love, new  memories  supported
