Like a soft breeze her presence dissipated, as I turned . . . bereft and torn her departure left me . . stunned . . . utter sudden desolation . . . for centuries my soul cried in horror.
Raining drops from heart of stone
Diamonds breaking in the dust
Galaxies of questions sparkle
In cold light of the dark
Windows through countless lives
Refracting the fullness of nothing
Colors ooze slowly, suspended
Fragments of timeworn illusion
Worn etched upon a memory
Of things that never happened
Quiet waves of tranquility
Caress the shores of an empty lake.

Silvered horn on frosted brow
Beard streams long and low
In silence eye to eye is seen
Lost fantasies between
Hooves of golden luminance
In steady rhythms dance
Softly come the footfall
To mysteries fragile wall
Tail sweeps the forest floor
A Princess’ flowing gown
Low the heart beat resonates
A shimmering of sound
Mane of moonlit filigree
Weaves quite like the sea
Pirouette of symphonies
It dances in the breeze
Gleaming coat of satin snow
Pure in innocence glow
Beckoning the purest touch
Of yesteryear and such
Fairy steed of days of yore
Comes the Unicorn once more
With Maiden’s fair of grace
To hold its shining place

Out of the file box from a few years ago.
This was written at the request of a friend for her daughter.
Teardrops on Her Skin . . .
My lady touched me softly
With tears upon my skin
An’ yet they’re not deep sorrow
Though pain soft lies within
Brief the parting, just for now
Soft peace and hope begin
Stand upon the threshold
And the world dropped from view
I looked into those searching eyes
They were looking back at me
Time stood still in each others arms
As we lost ourselves within
So Lady hold me gently
I know you’ll hold me true
Stay within my arms
So I can hold you too
Ask the Gods to speed the time
Fly swiftly through the days
I carry you within me
I left teardrops on your skin.
Thought = Form
And the sun sets, crimson.
And the sky dawns, iridescent.
And the leaves dance, merrily
Stars are born
And the universe floats, unimaginably
We live for tomorrow and lose the day.
We worry always as life slips away.
We fret for what we have not.
And forget what we have.
Tomorrow is never here.
And you have this day to live.
Some days never change, some never stay the same
Music dances lyrically and the song remains the unchanged.
Life passes in bits and pieces, moments frozen in time.
Is there a need for tomorrow, to wake again?
Banfiadh – Wolfthought5/2018
One foot in tomorrow and one in yesterday.
The passage of the ages never seems to fade.
Strewn across the vastness like ripples in the shade.
I see in all the memories the moments we have made.
My eyes within the heavens and feet fast on the ground.
Each tear or toll of laughter passes without sound
Upon my inner eye does play the memory of you.
Two souls softly touching, an extraordinary view.
Within me burns eternal sun tempered by your moon.
Born within the vastness of creations dawning tune.
We are lost across the cycles of times eternal tide.
We’ve strolled in meted chaos, quite often side by side.
Heart within the heavens and soul on forever’s shore
Our passage has spawned legend, lost in days of yore.
Born within the darkness two lost and wondering lights
Alone in isolation until we heard each other’s cry.
Children of the starlight, we are travelling this song,
This journeys crossed forever and continues to go on.
As we were born in nothingness strewn with stars anew.
Life is lost and empty without a touch of you.
Deceptions of The Heart
I’ve asked the Gods to free me from your presence in my mind.
Cried for quiet numbness to block away the time
I’ve wished the walls around me, wrought iron to the core.
Thrown my heart within them so I can’t feel you any more.
I seek you through the darkness of my desolated soul
Cross the threads lying broken within this endless void.
I hunt across my memory to turn you from my mind,
For desire lies shattered locked in boundless time.
I rage against you now and then to hide the hurt I feel.
Crush each spark of laughter shared by you and me.
Curl in the cold darkness that lies inside of me.
I’ve wished away forever, though I cannot count the times.
I beg the gods to free me and unchained, my spirit freed.
I’ve hunted down your memories and cast them in deception’s seas.
I‘ve wished the hope to silence while crushing every spark
And I dance upon the jagged edge of this shattered heart.
Yet I seek you in the darkness and hear your silent cries.
I feel your breath upon me as never begins to die.
I see your face behind my eyes, your touch upon my skin.
Sleepless as I memorize the contours of you once again.
I sought across the tracks of time searched both high and low
Driven by a needing of which I didn’t know.
And when it grows the darkest as I cast you from my heart
I wake anew each morning as it all begins again.
I’ve loved you through the ages across the universe divine,
and searched across the timeless plain to free you in this time.
Maybe in tomorrow in its never dawning grace,
I’ll open eyes upon you safe in your embrace.
