Butterfly flutters
In the early autumn sun,
Holding on to life.

When forever is just a day
Every wingbeat matters.

Dream of Eve

Day 16 of my review of the last twelve months and a poem about summer nights ( with no mention of Travolta or Grease)

Made of sticks and stones

Moonlight sparkles on the water
As I drift lazily by, within this dream.
The languor of a summer night
Encapsulates the instant
The goddess whispers my name.
Her voice so beautiful, ethereal,
It’s like the sighing of the breeze.

I,
I stutter,
Struggling to make the words
That form so beautiful
In my mind
Travel to my lips, and form the sounds
Of rose petals for you
To walk barefoot upon.

And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:

She Walks in Beauty

Lord Byron

There is nothing behind the eyes,
Beauty skin deep,
Dermatologically challenged,
Because there is nothing within.

Feathered adornment, but a show.
Flesh glows with nature’s bounty
With decay in the soul.
Because there is nothing within.

The heart retreats before
The barren touch,
The demeaning gaze of them.
Because they have nothing within.

For S

Day 4

Made of sticks and stones

Those deep and dark eyes,

That beatific smile,

Lilting words spoken from honey lips;

But there are storms, black,

Hidden far down inside.
