Enchanted Forest

I carved our love in the wood

Of the tree we once stood

In that enchanted forest

If those trees could speak

The forest would burn in flames

From the passion we shared

Under the veil of night

Secluded by the life of the forest

We exchanged our lust that night

In the enchanted forest

We became one with all

In remembrance of us

I marked the spot

Where we revealed ourselves

The universe circling above us

I placed your head on my chest

You felt the heart pumping

That drumming beat

Became the rhythm of the forest

Then we began our dance

Intertwined with one another

Tied to the night

Tied to the moment

In the enchanted forest

Time stood still

As we became one

Bound in unity

Bathed by the moonlight

We shined ever so bright

Our stardust sparkling

When caught in the beams

The spark of creation

The magic happening

So native

So free

Within the enchanted forest

Is where we found our truth

Hidden deep within

The Playground

It’s form is a child

Watching over the playground

Always hunting its prey

You may think on the young at play

It’s going to feast

I assure you not

For truly you see

The young are its heart

Full of life

Vibrantly free

That is what it protects

You must see

There are those it hunts

Just outside the playground fronts

Here are the predators that be

Very violent

So obscene

You must stay clear

Or in danger you’ll be

Remain and be seen

And leave them to me

Keeping this playground safe

For you and I

Tag

We are playing tag

God is it

By the touch of God

You’ll be frozen in space

God always wins

Just enjoy the fun

You know the rules

You know the game

It’s a matter of time

With all these rhymes

Combined in one

You can find

What’s inside

You’ll need it for the ride

Take it all in stride

Don’t lose the pace

Before long

You’ll be frozen in space

Now you know

How it ends

Do you know how it begins

We are playing tag

Love is it

Love always wins

Love is where it all begins

Scars

I’m here to bear witness

Of a universal renewal

Every time you attack me

All these scars burn

For all the torture

For all the pain

For all the blood

For all the tears

No more in silence

Because that’s violence

You tried to kill

What could not be killed

You tried to undo

What cannot be undone

You crossed the line

Your fate is sealed

Which is concealed

In the after doom

In the gloom

Of my despair

Where I was left

In pain to die

Bruised and bare

Holding on to life

Fascinated by the light

That even death

Holds a bitter sweetness

Wanting relief

Yearning to be free

I take refuge

In your light

In your love

Even in the stillness

Of your darkness

You heal these scars

Upon this heart

Sphere

I am ever grateful

To that which has given life

To the one that started it all

To thee

I give thanks

In awe of the beauty

In all of the variety

Which can be called the spice of life

Round and round

Which the wheel keeps spinning

And so it goes

It has no beginning

Nor has an ending

Forever meeting

Round and round

We go

Spinning in a circle

In a spherical motion

Just going with the flow

There is a rainbow

And a perfect halo

With wings being optional

Ever sweet music always plays

To charge the soul

And stir emotions of expression

Ever causing movement

Always moving completing a cycle

In many different forms

Making such bedazzling sparks

Such a pretty light show

I love the glow

Of such wonders

Always leaves me feeling lost in all

Caught in this space

Which is everything

Knowing nothing could ever compete

Or duplicate nor replace

Living in this beautiful sphere

That we call home
