    Tell me a story
    Sing me a song
    Fly to the moon
    On a butterfly kiss

    Dance with the stars
    Skip to my lou
    Dreams spun from lavender blue

    Dandelions whisper to the breeze
    Strawberry hearts love stardust
    Tip toe, twirl about
    Rainbows bring the sunshine out

    It was in the tender way she loved
    That made her beautiful

    She held her sorrow close
    And slowly let go of all the pain

    And as she blooms
    All is revealed
    Standing completely naked
    Petals tossed to the breeze
    Her heart beating a little faster

    In the moonlight her heart listens
    Hearing the wild of the whole world

    She is a harmonious mix of gypsy, earth and storm braided intimately together with earnest song
    Never needing to explain or gently pause
    Giving without reason tethering near her fragmented doubt
    For neither argument contrived
    Drumming her truth out loud
    Of exuberant nature, cause enough to dance amidst disheveled brokenness
    Cradling close a disheartened ache
    Coloured glass this shattering as the sweet fragrance of Autumn collides with the bitter taste for Winter
    An echo reverberating in the darkened space behind wrought ribbed gates
    Alongside breathless beating, her naked heart beautiful rigidly astride
    No longer gilded edges frayed
    Tatters mended painstakingly with graceful charm
    Hemmed and seams laced with giddy lengths of twine
    Tender stitches embroider a lilac paisley print
    Bronzed needle leading silken yarn
    Healing finite her warm abundance entwining self loved eloquence
    With cool assurance borne of precious crystals, smooth stones and faceted gems
    Willowy wildflowers enticing lithe flightless feathers twisted back and woven forth to resemble a floral wreath
    Replacing her thorn barbed crown restful upon raven tressses
    A beauty not unlike a bejeweled Cleopatra
    She is why dusk sometimes waits a little longer
    Needing to catch her breath an extra moment
    Seldom chaos painting swiftly grey day's lightened hours
    Infused thoughts contemptuous swimming in fathomless haunts centering the swirl of violet lakes
    Her soul fluent to the call of wild things rampant on a moonless night
    Evoking emotions to run barefoot leaving goosebumps in their wake
    Skin chilled though her heart ablaze
    A spiritual awakening retrieved in the aftermath of salvation
    Sorrow dissipating
    A child no longer to softly weep in shadow
    The calm of distant bells sing a swansong victorious
    Playing over in the fading memory of forgotten dreams as dawn gently breaks herself completely open

    She is the soft serenity born of a gentle breeze
    Whispering audaciously to her naked soul
    Confident of spirit yet shy of heart she ponders the many vibrant hues of inspiration
    Lovestruck by whimsy behold an artist's sky leaving a kaleidoscope of emotions untethered
    With humble needs her nimble fingers strum chords reminiscent of a pretty melody
    Satchel stashed to overflowing with parchment pages writing endless lines of windswept poetry
    Her gypsy bones wrapped in delightful drawings and playful caricatures
    Fragrant essence anoint her skin with delicate wafts of citrus, peach and lavender oil
    Rising early picking blossoms
    Birdsong her companion
    Dahlias, sunny flowers, fern fronds and fly away feathers
    A wreath so lovingly woven to adorn atop her crown
    A mind filled with quotes and affirmations often frequently surface her conscience
    A semblance of strength fills her limbs
    Iron and stardust
    Magna and rain
    She surrenders to the inclement fall of dusk dimly lit an introvert
    Elusive an echo haunts her dreams, a darkened temptress of the night
    At most forgotten by the light of breaking day
    Chased away by gatekeepers for the moon her stars above
    Cherishing her serendipitous thoughts of wanderlust and daydreams aplenty much requitted love
    Wistful hours pass under graceful canopy
    Finding quiet the beauty of make believe
    Peaceful her solace beneath a blooming frangipani tree

    Au Revoir

    Yesterday cried softly on my pillow falling quietly into the night
    Without a single kiss
    Soft lips I'll surely not recall
    A silent whisper slipped across the moon
    Stardust in her eyes
    Merely a shadow of the wind
    A chameleon in flight

    Chocolate wrappers in a teacup, softly fragrance on your skin
    Surrender gently to a memory, you knew it was her whim
    In the stillness she lit a candle so you might find the way
    A piece of her lays with you
    Leaving gentle here her song
    Love is not a fallacy
    But a heartbeat of the soul
    Unspoken to the night
    With just one wish not to go

    I hide my tears between the tattered pages
    Of a fairly tale written many years before
    Once upon a simpler time
    When life turned as if to be a ferris wheel
    Weaving minutes into lengths of yarn and string
    And thoughts cost just a pretty penny
    Memories precious tucked inside a trinket box
    When all l loved to do was dance and sing

    Maybe this is the secret to self discovery

    Perhaps this is the magic where you're bound to find contentment and your inner peace

    The Climb

    Inner peace grows beautifully idyllic
    Bursting through the husk of a humble seed
    Plant her deep in the furthermost nook of your tender soul
    She will kindly gift welcomed respite
    Calm in defeating the increasing swell of hushed sufferance
    Covered softly over beguiling fragrant dust
    Pressed sound between mortar and pestle laid gentle prettily sunflower petals
    Tendered at length by hands that toil, an oath and a prayer
    Frequent watering by pail laced intrinsically witn love she will most surely flourish
    Quieten the squall of bitter turmoil and the self doubt you harbour swirling somewhat tumultuous
    Tenacity in spades when you feel your mind is left a tad ajar, slipping, slightly precarious
    Nurture lavishly upon softest sheer emotions hidden sadly forgotten these darkened spaces
    Crying fervently untold her nightly terrors
    Beseeching now on bended knees she commissarates her sorrow
    A passionate plea with all she's worth hoping for one moment to be heard
    A fiery resurrection wings outstretched her dues sorely imminent
    Embrace fiercely your younger self
    Biding there subdued between your heart and soul
    Even now her need for warmth, validation and constant understanding paramount
    She misses your frequent conversation and dreams of fancy
    Kiss soft her cheek promising oceans brimming high with endless love
    Forgive yourself generously for the barrage of hurt bestowed
    Thunderous upon your own stoney temple
    Amidst the confusion of accusatory self infliction
    Caress the malevolence you've ornately carved
    Your handiwork crafted unique from challenging ordeals braving the waves of tempestuous circumstance
    Bequeath tenderness copiously over old wounds and new
    Acknowledge the weight of indecision and the debt of poorly managed choices
    When life at the fair was merely a hapless merry-go-round
    Bury forever and a day without grievance each ancestral woe
    Their smooth passage obligatory through the gates of foregone generations
    Let the ambiguity of interpretation fade quietly amongst the throes of shaded obscurity
    Run lovingly your fingertips over the etched paisley pattern of scars both past and present
    The ones you mask with the painful eloquence of a pretty smile
    Superbly painted to hide your vanquished yet elegantly beautiful reflection
    Broken tears that fall and dance flawless their enchanting rendition of a Swan Lake ballet
    Scribe words of hope and goodwill across each blessed sunset to day's end
    So you may sleep contentedly assured unassuming disquietude at liberty beneath blue black lashes
    And in the shadowy confines where time ticks by
    A pale light shimmers borne to lifeless ashes
    Softly scintillating, a growing ray of enlightenment
    Ignited swiftly upon a summer's day by cultivating the sweetest essence of candescent thought
    Nary need to rise at all unfaithful with resolution to force a ruse of token happiness
    Eyes prised open gazing east with a heart that sees
    There is much to be thankful for
    An aurora boasting strokes superbly brushed by the Master's themselves
    A kaleidoscope resplendent, hues transcending unsurpassed opulence
    Here unpretentious abodes her inner peace
    Respectfully she bows her head having come full circle
    A procession of countless steps to be congratulated with rapturous applause
    A journey that takes you beyond tomorrow
    Let the past fall away
    Building repport with your truest self
    A steeply yet steady climb encompassing honour and tender grace
    Lasting the gloriously giddy expanse of your existential existence

    Patterned Scars

    Wounds that never completely close and heal
    Gooseberry tears that continually ebb to flow
    Unwilful dreams and thoughts here cradled close
    Cherished trinkets held firm their gentle grace
    These are the remnants of life I so lovingly own
    For you'll not steal solely one day that's mine
    As endless corridors I walk with eyes half closed
    No doors or windows lay open here
    A darkened clockwise labyrinth
    This giddy mouse marking time
    Failing not though to bide alone
    Silent footsteps tread loyal at my side
    One's own tender love beating quietly besotted
    A rapturous requital
    For She softly falls here beautiful my shadow
    Understanding the anguish of my innermost struggle
    Contemptuous hostilities
    Consoling these bloodied knees for when those times I uncoordinatedly stumble
    The only one to whisper "I do most truly love you so"
    And kiss the patterned scars shaped like stars
    Painted with eloquence upon this pummeled heart
    Never ceasing to beat aloud unheard

    Hapless

    Knees pulled up against the soft assurance of an encumbered bossom
    Dampening the boney rest beneath her tender cheek
    Sorrow a gentle soiree on the high of night's lonesome tide
    As the moon pirouettes to an audience of a solitary one
    Shadows elongated weigh her heavily
    Fall across the slight slope of shoulders unyielding
    Beseeching woe lays fallow
    A bleak terrain where voices creak and ghosts incessantly squabble
    Not a soul comes to her to hold a hand
    Not one to wipe a tear
    As angst heaves aloud
    A quiet shudder ripples across still water
    An indelible echo gently dancing to the hypnotic sway of time's silent pendulum

    A little broken, wilted snd forlorn
    She shed a stream of tears
    Some crushed, some remaining perfectly whole
    Dampening raven lashes
    Tracing the lines of a map well worn
    Archaic etchings
    Over rose stroked cheeks
    And ruby lips
    Settling in a stoney crevice
    Just above her clavicle
    As this dying day faded into beautiful dusk
    She pondered how courageous the moon rose
    Countless nights for her ample pleasure
    Regardless of mood or tempest
    Sometimes his shyness quite apparent
    Only showing partial his handsome features
    She took her fill of his ambience
    Warming solely her bones
    Energizing her mind and spirit
    Now her demeanor unfolding bodacious and brave
    Feeling with certainty much stronger
    She too will rise tomorrow
    Dawn a splendid masterpiece
    With intent in her stride
    Always blooming a shade more than beautiful

    Truce

    There is chaos in every shuddered breath
    Every broken smile
    Like rose petals thrown to the wind
    Hands in the air
    She lays peacefully forsaken
    A forgotten wisp the truce of a moment's sanity
    Her quiet existence
    Abides

    Engaging

    She curls up in the comfort of moon's embrace
    An exquisite harmonious lover's clinch
    Held close in the curve of his palm
    Encompassed by luminous peace
    Her grandeur paling beside his apparent candescent opulence
    Lulled by the pull of the tide
    Sweetest surrender
    Her name sung on ocean waves
    Destiny's daughter called home
    Lyrics lost in the chaos of a foamy sea
    Her bold pearlescence contrite
    Enveloped by darkened depths
    She falls headstrong
    Having danced her last hurrah
    Gnarled talons close against her mirrored skin
    This inky good night
    Her shallow grave
    Sheltered from the storm

    Diamonds are surely born

    ~ Josie A Kerr

  • jarraley 115w

    Her wings gently splayed
    They lay at rest
    Her mind ceasing to revolve
    No troublesome thoughts
    No undue angst
    This is her peace
    Her freedom

    Here You See Me

    We passed by in the slender eclipse between time and space
    That narrow expanse where all is an infinitely beautiful possibility
    Unseen are the shadows of every waiting tomorrow
    Stelth in quietude that was yesterday's dancing moonlight
    Exquisite hallowed solitude
    Here you see me
    The unwoken likelihood of romantic notions rest wistful
    Hushed unbeknown promises unperturbed
    Holding precious whims on the tender cusp of a midnight dream
    Here you see me
    A softly silhouette
    Bathed in the warmth of scintillating stars
    Mercury constantly in shades of retrograde
    Evoking untethered emotions
    Surrendering
    To the passionate throes of a wildly wind
    Here you see me
    Undeniable happenstance
    Found lost in the perfect storm to another hapless soul
    Wholly, solely
    Naked abandonment
    Tasting the pelting rain
    Here you see me
    An insipid kaleidoscope dawning beautiful brilliance
    Overthrowing the grey hues of bleaknes
    Dismissive to the pangs of brokenness
    Splendid brushstrokes of crimson gold and mauve
    Embellish superbly morn's aurora with fond regard
    Here you see me
    Intrinsic splendour
    An existence exquisitely idyllic
    A moment's heartbeat lost in the shallows of a solitary rising breath
    Feeling that gentle embrace of a softly spoken whisper
    On the edge of a ravens wing
    Your soul softly brushing against mine
    Here you see me
    Found to each our other
    Opulent candescence
    Windswept within a silent echo
    Where the death of night seldom speaks
    Day breaks fragile within her looking glass
    Hushed vibrance of gentle rays
    Fragrant scents of enlightenment
    Here you see me
    The epitome of knowing
    Discovered by your own beautiful self
    Found in a million different ways
    Tentatively we unburden our sacred scars
    Bare the colours of our souls
    Undress our dreams in the glory of daylight
    The truth of our skin
    Naked to the burning core
    Here you see me

    Every Shade Of Beautiful

    Dappled light plays a quiet timpani
    Upon the meagre shade of delicate filigree lace
    Toppling the plush softness of pretty pink organza drapes
    Dust slow dancing, swaying nonchalant in the amber glow of early morn
    Falling graceful across the tangled disarray of crumpled sheets
    Swaddling a torn heart laying naked against the fairness of tepid skin
    Dawn nudges her soft soul from the warm embrace of cocooned slumber
    Thoughts adrift, gliding in from across a seamless seascape
    Her dreams lulled by the swiftness of an encroaching tide
    Morning songbirds lyrical
    Their music filtered through the lush undergrowth of deftly painted dandelions
    Washing away the last threads of the night bygone
    Slits of hazel green and a serendipitous smile gently lift her subconscious from the sanctuary of blissful sleep
    To where a state of saturated peace can be shared equally witn humility
    Empowering and energizing
    Fueling her good intentions
    Her disposition a positive influence of irrevocable kind abundance
    Already she is taking small liberties
    With expectations for a brimming day of calm equilibrium
    Her mindset every shade of beautiful
    Carrying a bouquet of gratitude and copious thankfulness in outstretched arms
    A joyous balance of harmony and hushed contentment fills her heart
    Let the day bring what might
    Letting humble goodness settle in the timber of her bones
    And the ugliness of meshed barbed wire melt into the abyss of night's shadows
    Buried in silvery stardust
    Soon to become the remnants of forgotten yesterdays
    Those pools of deepest emerald close steadfast on the raucous mayhem of one more hectic day
    Gifting kind sentiment where needed
    Encouraging the less fortunate
    Spreading the sweet taste of hope where bitterness bides
    She will rise her better self tomorrow
    To breathe another day forging sumptuous goodwill
    The epitome of benevolence

    Fantastical Castles

    I tied my love with a paper bow
    And set it free with a kiss and a wish
    To be completely drenched in the blissful hush of wanderlust
    Wrapped magnificently in the romantic notions of sunny cadence
    Building fantastical castles
    Floating east on the rim of a champagne flute
    At peace in the arms of serendipity
    But if love should return to me in kind
    Taking refuge beneath my wings
    I'd dance under the elegance of a waning moon
    Humbled to call love mine
