~The Dragon Flies Lair~
Poets | August 27, 2003 | bentfeather

Posted on 08/27/2003 5:11:10 PM 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...

Hello ms. feather!

No poet am I but I can at least bring along this dragonfly.

A little pretty to go with my dopey ditty!

LOL! I have noooooo idea where that came from! Could be lack of sleep?

My mood is exquisite shades
of lavender love
passionate with colors
Like an orchid
lush, vibrant and soft
with confidence...

The mystique is you and
the reality of our love...
Will we be faceless

Wonderful feather, wonderful.

I'm so happy for you and the fact that you will soon be published big time!

SAM is out hiking today or I know he would be right here giving you good wishes too. He'll show up, just later this evening. ;)

Hmmm. Maybe I should post my poem here...

I waited for you
The sun kept the time
The moon watched you
I waited

The stars had a view of you
That I could not see
The night embraced you
I waited

The day gave birth to you
Your joy rose again
In you eyes in the morning
I waited

The time and distance
Are not so far,
Drawing near

I see your sillohette
In the mist,
dancing in the wind
I am waiting

While I dream distance
long memories awake to pain
my memory holds love
my fears sleep in love
staying alive

Beneath velvet darkness
dazzling ice
over opal grey
sparkling snow
Falling in a quiet sky
love is a soft wind...

Let them go my love
Those fears that keep you far
From me, come whisper
Tell me that you are

Loving me and finally you
Let me draw you close
And closer still
Till I hear you, my love sigh

We languor in that moment
In sleep we drift, in and out
Of the same surrealistic dream

We don our wings, and off we take
Sailing upon the golden rays of the moon
And float and drift and fly from star to star

My love you are waiting, but don’t
Just come quickly, just as you are.

Looking, entering into your eyes,
Melting, I into you and you into me
We probe and explore in curious delight
And celebrate for an eternity

Knowing you and
seeing myself through your eyes

And now, I am taken up
Through and beyond my desire
To a place, where there is peace
Because now I see all
and understand.

Poetry

Magic is... 
poetry stealing its way across
the mind in the night
weaving words very tight
to make them rhyme
make them write
Poetry is the Magic of the night...

Beautiful Poem!

Makes me wish that I was a dragonfly - or even a housefly, if it meant that I could hang out in your back yard.

Our place is soft
as silky down
understanding your loyality
is love and
losing your arguments...

There is a time for winning
And a time for letting go
And a time for saying what you mean
For us creatures that do no know

Silky down is soft and nice
And we and us, are nice words
So you write to him, your loyality
And I will sing to the birds

But I have lost so much to be here....

Stigmata of Tears
oozing from pores
fall from my eyes...
A receiving vessel
isn’t provided...
What do I do with them?

Glamour Fading
It hurt so bad...
one wanted it
i have to give...
i cannot contain it
it will blow me up!
What do I do with it?

I found the frame empty
only wanted to fill it
with color...my own damned
life to sing something other than
the blues, time warped
in shattered shards and shadows
walking in gossamer webs
my mind caught in the
Haunting of boxing with the wind
blowing hard on my face
faceless as you
untouchable north
can I move your south
gather your scattered west and east
as the angel of the seas...
I would hold you
with open arms
and agape love
and

Box with you in the winds...

By the words that you spoke
on a clear autum eve,
I started to type, but choked

Oh milady, my common and worn words
Should not even sit beneath yours
Your words are so floweryly divine
And mine are such an utter bore



I find her in the midnight hour
Bathed in the light of the moon
I came because I need you, I said
I hope I’m not here too soon

Maybe it’s not you I love
For you I do not know
But it is for the ideal of love
That I let my words now flow.

Nay, your words are not a bore...
There are many more in store.

But it is for the ideal of love
That I let my words now flow.

Liquid silver flows smooth and slow
so the words of love must go
to penetrate the psyche deep
to live in chambers of the heart
to become a living part of the loved one.

True, true, what you say is true.
But I being a guy do know
That with these verses of love
They will say a queerness, I show

Haha, I think it funny
With that I’ll go hug my bunny

But seriously or as much as I can be
Your words like slow silver run through me

They tickle and titillate the senses
And make me think of putting up fences...

But another part of me will not retreat
For this kind of fun just cannot be beat

The hearld I answer is the one
whispering in my ear
hitching a ride with me
or is it I with her
on the winds...
we fly, we are never shy
no nevermore will she and I
be tamed or shamed
or blamed...
in trance we roam
without a home
stopping by afar
galaxies unborn
we dance the rhyme
sweet in sound
rich in color all around
we fling the stars
in fun each night
return by dawn's faint light
we wait for nights' respose
to put a twinkle in our toes
to tweek our ears to the call
laughing, laughing in the hall...

And so the dream fades away
And the reality lingers
I say one two three wake up
And snap my fingers

For a time I was with her
The scent of violets in the air
And then she said good bye
And I said life is not fair

Nay the dream fades not
into shades of grey...
Nay, it must live
love is all there is
of value...
Don't throw it away
hold on my heart
it will live another day

The violets will fade
as hair silvers
in long dark shadows
of an August afternoon
and the chill of the north wind
reminds one of an approaching
cold and lifeless winter

Nay Spring is always near
fresh violet fields in play
in fields of clover dear
hold her close and near
never
let her go again... ever

But my love, with empathy, I said
I know that you have to get to bed
And if you keep it up, I’m afred
I’ll not get you out of my head

Your words they make me smile
They make my heart smile too
But too much of this can warp the mind
So that only the ideal will do

Henceforth I'll settle for nothing less
Than a trip around Venus and Mars
I’ll never find the one, I now need
Now that you have raised the bar
