A GLIMPSE OF VENUS
 
The clouds float by
effortlessly,
on this quiet starless night,
a glimpse of light
 creeps through
to dance hues of
blue and gray
across the sky.....
darkness
is lingering in the east
as a light from the planet venus
shines through a break in the clouds
and as quickly as it's shown
the clouds hurry to cover and hide..

A POET
 
Born to write
a beautiful verse
with rhyme
and reasons
of thoughts diverse
his mind, it climbs
life's brittle curse,
finding it's meaning
in joy reverse,
a gathering thought...
a sentiment...
with a quirky phrase
and a bit of prose
he sit's alone
with his pen in hand
as he enters
his white lined
universe..

 PROMISES MADE
 
My mind is wandering,
     to thoughts of you..
Wondering if my heart
     can hold what's true..
Forcing hidden feelings
     to come to the surface,
ones that before
     never had a purpose...
Mixed emotions
     get caught in confusion,
racing with time
     to draw a conclusion.
Wanting to love you
     but still so afraid,
of hurting and losing
     from the promises made...

FOREST OF FEARS
 
I see that you're lost
in that forest of fears.
Your eyes are sparkling,
in that old sea of tears..
Give me your hand,
and I'll guide you out.
Then I shall show you
what love is about..
When you believe in nothing
and your dreams die..
I will be there
to help you fly..

CHANCE OF A WRONG
 
The heart cries
    with a voice of it's own,
while the mind goes over
    the facts that are shown....
If you follow the heart
    it could lead to tears..
But listening to the mind
    gives into the fears..
Which do you follow
    when love comes along?
Should you reason with both,
    at a chance of a wrong?????
