Mellow Drama

Mellow Drama

I watch the colors in the sky
lazy wayward clouds drifting by
twilight morphing crimson and gold
as the mellow drama unfolds.

I smell a fragrance light and fair
night blooming jasmine fills the air
its white blossoms of grace exude
infuse my soul with gratitude.

I hear the plaintive catbird calls
a sad serenade as dusk falls
melancholy song in my ears
with heavy heart and misting tears.

I feel the ever shifting wind
gentle caresses on my skin
like nimble fingers warm and light
guiding me to the edge of night.

I savor distant shooting stars
flavors exploding from afar
so sweet and tart upon my tongue
reminding me my soul is young.

I dance across the night aflame
and take a bow to wild acclaim
the lead role in this cinema
star of my own mellow drama.

As The Wind Speaks

As the Wind Speaks…

April sun fades in crimson skies,
Serenaded by catbird cries.
Owl takes refuge in maple tree
As the wind speaks softly to me.

Thoughts tumble down, into the fray 
At the end of a weary day.
Golden moon rises high and free
As the wind speaks softly to me.

In a trance, dancing by starlight;
Lips like velvet deep in the night.
Arms enfold and rock me gently
As the wind speaks softly to me.

April sun fades in crimson skies
As the wind speaks softly to me.
