~The Dragon Flies Lair III~
October 18, 2003 | bentfeather

Posted on 10/18/2003 7:27:28 AM PDT by Soaring Feather

My Dragon Fly and Me

If I could be a Dragon Fly
and wing my way through the sky
I would never be shy
just me and my Dragon Fly!

By moonlight we ride the wind
chase the comets tail for fun
by day we would hide from the sun
our fragile wings would come undone

On darkest nights we would use
fireflies as our guides
we would dip and we would glide
through the heavens open wide
and scatter diamonds in the night sky
my Dragon Fly and I...

And we would wing past our lovers
silent in the night...
to kiss their face in our flight
much to their surprise and delight
my Dragon Fly and me in sight...

Such a view do we share
away up here in the air
of breezes soft through our hair
my Dragon Fly and me a pair...

Bridge of Relief

You are my bridge
spanning onto new plateaus
over patches of rough water
open chasms of peril and fear
with you near me...
I have no dread of tomorrow
or of cold black nights
or of holding ceremonies
from dusk til dawn
you are my dusk, my dawn
my past and my future...
you are the ceremony...

I am poet Bentfeather ©

When I'm missing you
the ghost of you clings to me
like frozen condensation on glass
ice lace and white feathers
your ghost is etched on my memory

I am haunted by your absence...
then confetti rain you blaze across the skies
playful comic comet display at twilight...

you warm my soul melting in love for you...

as ice lace and white feathers disolve on warmed glass
you decant your flavor over me
I am soft in your descending love
delicious in glass lace and white feathers
I adore you confetti rain
you cause me to smile...
we laugh together over silly private jokes

Hurry back... I am haunted by your absence...

Ms. Feather, this isn't where the tree toppled, is it? I certainly hope not, that's such a peaceful setting.

Wonderful images in the verse today...especially your bridge!

Thank you for the kind words.

Yes, Jinx this is where the tree fell. One of the lovely Victorian chairs is totally crushed, the rocker is gone but not forgotten.

The remains of the tree are now gone. It was learned the old pine tree was diseased, termites had taken over. My brother and I measured the girth of the fallen tree, it was 9' around the trunk.

I am thankful I was not out there in that wind storm. There was no damage to any property, garages or home roofs.

Wrapped in mist
velvet warmth in
tempestous undertow
flood tide bursting
under maddened moon
of pie bald pastels
and gray white ashes
from scorching bones

Feeling her color of red
pungent and tangy
alive is a life of love
and a soft smooth wind...

Write away Dark, light verse, dark verse, all have a role in the poet's world.

I have written much dark stuff in years past.

Not a problem.

a beautiful morning with friends gathered 'round
a poetry place
where good words may be found

for laughter and sharing
red feathers in hats
right next to our foxholes
how convenient is that!



feather dusters that is :)

OKers, I get the message and the point.

But I'd prefer if some of the others tossed some writ out there too.
Our Miss Feather can't be expected to offset my stuff by herself all the time now.

A ragged little country girl
turned this Sailor's heart
He gave his all for our nation grand
his scars did not show
He gave his love to one and all
My Uncle Fran
YOU were very tall!
You'll Be In MY Heart

In the Back of a Truck in the Country



The swirling rush
Half-obscures my view
With hair and roaring wind

The smooth liquid Earth-breath
Coats my skin
Manes my hair
And squints my eyes, while

The purpleorange heat-lightning on the horizon
Coaxes
And smirks
And badgers me
For wanting to beat my brother to shotgun

Sam,

Love this poem!

Fond are the days when the kids jumped into the back of our pick-up and headed out for raccoon hunting with their dad, or the swimming hole on hot summer nights.
Remember I have four daughters!!! LOL

Just now listening to the tunes, fantastic choice Sam.

Love all the tunes.

Thanks for Donuts and coffee, I was feared we would have to have some of Darksheare's brew!! LOL

Save a Donut for radu when she comes flying in the early a.m. hours. LOL

Gotta to love this Vampire with a sweet tooth!!

The below won't make any sense without the band's video.
See if you notice anything amiss about how the guy in the video effects his enviironment.
Or more correctly, doesn't?
The video is on the above page, Should be the top one "Someday"

Nickelback - "Someday"

How the hell did we wind up like this
Why weren't we able
To see the signs that we missed
And try to turn the tables

I wish you'd unclench your fists
And unpack your suitcase
Lately there's been too much of this
Dont think its too late

Nothin's wrong
just as long as
you know that someday I will

Someday, somehow
gonna make it allright but not right now
I know you're wondering when
(You're the only one who knows that)
Someday, somehow
gonna make it allright but not right now
I know you're wondering when

Well i hoped that since we're here anyway
We could end up saying
Things we've always needed to say
So we could end up stringing
Now the story's played out like this
Just like a paperback novel
Lets rewrite an ending that fits
Instead of a hollywood horror

Nothin's wrong
just as long as
you know that someday I will

Someday, somehow
gonna make it allright but not right now
I know you're wondering when
(You're the only one who knows that)
Someday, somehow
gonna make it allright but not right now
I know you're wondering when

Check out 27 and tell me if the link takes you to the vid page.
(I couldn't get it to do a direct link...)
Then the rest of post 27 makes sense once the video is seen.

Yes, it did take a hell of a hit, teh rear window pops out and flies.
Did you notice that he's right behind the Jeep and isn't visible in the rearview mirror?
And the newspaper article in the paper dispenser?
Poor guy's dead and doesn't know it throughout the whole video.

Universe Rising

Out of the black ice
and grey dust
A universe rises
A place of serenity, peace,
Warmth, loving, trust and hope...

Sojourner solace
golden friendship and respect
a mist sounds of mystical music
creative forces endowed to us
perfection in an imperfect world
Blessed by twilight hours
of dusk meeting dawn
candles of ceremony lighted

In innocence of new and perfect
waiting in robed beauty
anxious but tattered in years
stained by shed tears of a million years
from a mud hens' haunts
to a Bird of Paradise plumage
of spectacular splendor
Universe Rising

Some Friends Are Truly Loyal

When darkness is found beneath the horizon
We desire twilight love...
Mocking the blinding moon laughing
over a nightmare.

friends



troubled and muddy waters
we waded through
the lies and betrayals weren't ours

we held steadfast together
and now we shine like the sun

we who could not be torn apart
by those who tried
we, the musketeers
