All sorts

Allsorts of delicious
Layers of sweet ice
Tamed by salty slice
Black tooth grin
Contrasting layers
Colour and shadow
Within

Snow bow dawns over
Frost capped peak
Missing colours
From morning light
Dark cloud absorbs

Crying windows
Barely contain
Blaring music
Femme legends
Stomach wrenching
Tattooed filigree
Black and colour
Lyric collects
Drizzle

Allsorts of ways
To love another
Some to admire
Crystal cut jar
Shelved for next
Holiday when maybe
One to taste

Who has heart
To tell young girl
Inside
Allsorts for looks
But never to try

From another lover

The only thing that comes
Between us is the beautiful silence
That speaks endlessly
Like eyes of many lovers
When theirs meet mine
We know more than could ever
Be told with lips
Our hearts translate
Mysterious language
Both chiming on the hour
Wound up by sightings
Kept in sync by
Pearl stringed smiling
Singing in tune
With your chorus
Dancing backstage
Ever whispering
Between lines of time
Wondering who'll bring
Flowers on final
Velvet curtain
Holding hand high
To a full house
In wonderment
A musical with no lead
To steal your soft light

Four loves

A compass rose points
My north star orbits
Moonlit white terrain
Cool far removed
Never to venture again

Rising sun drifts
Over cool clear water
Soothing aches
Casting light
Shadows refrain

Blinding sundown
Burning red
Clouds chase away
Crashing into sea
Recuperate

Southern cross
Guiding terra firma
Holding lost soul
Warm by earthen light
Illuminate the night
Eternal delight
Night lights of nipaluna / Hobart

Juniper

Tanned face sets off
Snowy blonde locks
Against the dappled
Sunlit lee
Under the lemon tree
She sleeps silently
The rise and fall
Of her chest
Like the whispers
Of breeze teasing
Her soft cheek
Passersby admire
Her peaceful gaze
They do not see
Tears distill
Welling over lids
Blinking pleasantly
As the sun kisses
Them away
Day will come
When one stops
Stay and taste
Sweet ripened
Slice of sunshine
Mixed with cool
Spring water creek
Drink with me
