Time--Wings/Roses/AZ Rains Series--Angels,Guardians,&SoulMates

Crimson lips upon mine
Hands rest on my hips.
The flavor of you
Your smell on me.
These things
As I think of you.
That replay
In my Mind.
Your gentleness
That scares me.
Your face
so close to mine.
Why do you
Test me
Tease me.
You know 
I want you.
Afraid I 
Can't have you.
Yet you're here
You always are
Aren't you.
Memories of you.

A Different Lens--Special Needs Series

Different.
Odd.
Strange.
Quirky.
Eccentric.
Weird.
Why?
Who says so?
Who says it's Wrong?
To be Different
To be Not The Same
As Everyone Else.
Maybe it's different.
Maybe it's not the same
You're used to.
So what?
Maybe that person isn't
What You Expected.
So what.
Maybe that person
Is exactly like you.
Hopeful.
Loving.
Smart.
Funny.
Beautiful.
Maybe they're
Looking at You.
And wondering
Why you can't be
More Like Them.
Accepting.
Faithful.
Compassionate.
Imaginative.
Curious.
Maybe we're looking
From The Wrong Place.
Thru the wrong lens.
Seeing life thru the 
Lens Of Special Needs
Isn't so odd.
Maybe just
Unique.
Take a Look
Sometime.
You might enjoy
What you see.

I can't see.
You.
The way you really are.
Always been.
Dark hair.
Fair skin.
Black eyes.
Perfect.
Beautiful.

The broken feathers
The scars across your skin.

Angel or Man.
Man is what you seem.
A gentle caress
A sign in my ear.
An Angel is what I hope for.
A touch of your soft wings
A whisper of Silence.

Eternally.


Home To Me--Hope&Survivors Series

Like a diamond
In this coal.

Hard to do
Why is that.
We see what 
We want to see
Maybe it's that.
To Hope
To Dream
To Want
Is to Reach.
To Reach
Is to be afraid
Afraid to fall.
Down this cliff
That's not as far
as it seems.
So that
One day
You look up & see
A Bridge
in front of you.
Thinking
This Is The Way Home.

A #Dragons & Warriors Prayer--R&G

Sands Of Time.
They slip through my claws
Like the thoughts of You.
My Life Here
You wouldn't know.
Wouldn't understand 
Even if I told you.
Long
Endless
Eternal.
Beyond Time.
But this time with you
This is enough for me.
A short as it seems.
Because you make
It seem so simple
So clean.
The reasons
for being Here.
Being here with You.
I exist because you do.
I was put here for you.
Your Guardian
Your Protector.
My wings
Dark
Rough
That could cause pain.
I sharpen them
For you.
I stay strong
To Fly for you.
I Walk The Perimeters
I Walk Point
For you.
If I can't stay
Know
That I will always
Fly near.
Watching you
Even from afar.
Guiding your Path Here
For You.

An #TheAviators & #Dragons Prayer

May your Wings let you soar
To the Skies you Love.
May the Ground below
Easy your landing.
May you find the Winds
On your face.
May you find Peace
Between your Flights.
May you always have 
A Passion to Fly.
May you always have
A Reason to come Home.

Desert Rain--AZ Rains Series--#AZPals

Creosote in my veins
A Desert Rat is what I am
What I'll always be.
This world around me
This foreign place
Soaks into my pores.
Other people see nothing
I suppose
They don't hear the sounds.
That the Desert makes.
All around me.
Days too hot
Nights too cold.
Rain
Thunder
I hear your call.
Survival here
Seems impossible here
I know.
But I'm here.
You're here.
That makes it 
The most beautiful 
Place on Earth.
So sit back
Enjoy the storms.
You appreciate
Survival more
The less it rains.

Only You--AZ Rains Series--Angels,Guardians,&SoulMates(My Fav)

Wet dirt beneath my toes
The water runs near me.
Flooding as it goes.
I search for you
And hope you don't know.
Looking up
I see you there.
Seeing me.
I can feel you watch me
Like I know you do.
But this is different.
This is new.
Your graceful 
Perfect movements
Come toward me.
Almost as beautiful 
As they are in my mind.
I see you in front of me
Looking to the side
The way you do.
I'm breathing faster now.
My breath coming fast.
Yours so perfectly slow.
Your eyes never leaving me
Holding me
Touching me from afar
The way you do.
I feel your hands near me.
Your hands
Wet and warm.
Bringing me closer 
To you
The way you do.
Holding me closer still
Your breath on my face.
Your arms around me
Body on me
The way you do.
Telling me to stop trembling
That you won't let me go.
Saying in my ear
What only I can hear
That you'll always have me
The way you do.

When I Look At You--R&G--OTRB/Fate/Eternal Love Series

Reincarnation 
Is it true.
Could I really 
Look at someone else
When I  look at You.
Could I look up
At this sky of blue.
See a Hawk above me
As she flies
When I look at you.
Watch you as you soar
And know our time together isn't through.
See your wings
Be in awe
When I look at you.
Graceful
Free.
Reincarnation
I believe
When I look at you.

A Touch.
A caress I remember.

As I Stand Here--R&G--A Warrior's Prayer

You see me at a distance
Far away.
You think I don't care.
I don't see.
But that's just me.
Sometimes a shadow.
Sometimes near.
It's the way I am
The way  I learned to be
The way I know how to be.
Someone must Walk Point
I guess that's me.

The Writer In You--R&G--Hope&Survivors Series

I see in you
So many possibilities.
And I'm proud of them all.
I see who you are now
And I know the struggle it took to get here.
And you amaze me.
The words you speak
On paper 
With pen
Show you so bright & clear.
A sparkling picture of perfection.
I see the flaws you fear
But only as you think they may be.
What I really see.
Is you.
I love you.

A Writer's Heart--R&G--Writers&Musicians Series

A mask worn 
across the Heart.

To disguise myself.

In a Masquerade Ball
Made of one.
I am joined there though
With the Ones who 
Are already there.
Who reside 
Close to me
Who never leave.

Their Party goes on
With or without me.
So I might as well
Join the Fun.

A Soul that beats in Rythem
Fast & slow.
Fluctuates to the beat of you
Music in my ears 
A sound only I can hear.

soft & low.
Guitars play
In the distance
Crescendo so good.
Taking me to you
I ride the flow.
I sit & listen 
To the strains
In my Heart.
I disappear in you
As I joined the show.



Music on Paper--R&G--Writers&Musicians Series

On paper
Songs ring in my head.
Poems in my mind
They sound musical to you.
It's funny how 
I see words
You hear music
But it still feels the same.
The cadence
Moves me toward you.
I know how you feel
Because you let me.
Into your World.
And it's so beautiful there.
I hope you let me visit you there
again & again.

May you remember me
When my time comes to walk with you again.

You Inspire My Blog

I've met lots of Poets in my world--Some just don't realize it.
But you'll see many of them here--Either by name if we're to look up my Twitter & FaceBook Time Lines---Or by the inspiration they give me.

First--Always--Is my Offline Family.The ones who make my world spin--Who create my days--And shine light into my nights.

Others you'll get to know here are in my own little personal world--A Family in a scense I suppose--Who live in my Poets mind--Who I want to live&breath--Even if it's in words.

And then you'll meet on Online Family--Loosely tied together within Twitter & Facebook Communities--Who each do something special for me--And everyone they come accros--In their own way.

I hope you come to appreciate & enjoy them along this journey,the way I do.

Traveling My Blog

Many Poems here you may recognize--Some you won't.

I started writing some of these on Twitter--Either as random,stray thoughts--Replys to other Poems--Or as Tribute to someone or something I care about.

I'll post many of those thoughts here--And if I had to think about how they all fall together--They would look something like this--

Stray Thoughts
Replies To You
Dragons In Time
Angels,Guardians,&Soul Mates
Tributes Of Friendship
Somewhere Inbetween

But since my thoughts don't really group themselves together this way naturally--I'll simply Post them as they come.

But--With this little road map,you can travel these roads with me,& maybe have a better idea of where we're going.

Enjoy.

Welcome Everyone


Many of you know me from Twitter &FaceBook--Many are long time Friends & Family--Many I know only from the Online World,who have become their own kind of Family.

Either way--I've come to know some interesting & amazing people & places.

I write about what I know--And I write because words-the ones in my mind-are more clear on paper or screen,than they are on my tongue--At least to me.

So--I'll share some of that here,with you.

I write the words as the are--The stories as they form in my mind.I say that I don't write them--I just use my hands to write them down.

So--I hope to take you on a little journey with me.

Hope you enjoy the ride.
