To you

Dusky purple hues dust over the sky

Sun slowly sinks, vanishing from the day,

Darkness falls, like soft velvet

A box full of darkness to share.

 

lovers meet hand in hand

Dancing to the moon on rain kissed streets,

Moonlight breaks though its cloudy mask

canopy of sparking speckles dance in the sky.

 

mouths smile gently capturing soft kisses

Secrets told to mouths not ears

Messages of love and desires,

they stroll enchanted with each other.

 

Toeards the stoney beach

Sea glistened mirroring the glittering sky,

Faint breeze bushes against the water

small ripples ruffle the stillness.

 

light wind took their love,

whispering into the horizon,

lightness of sky slowly rises upwards,

new light illuminating lovers drifting home.

Outside the window

From the noisy bustling office

warm, musty and dark

shards of bright light stream in

branch shadows dance on the desk

swirling, twisting, slowly then quickly

as I stare at the window

light fluffy clouds race by

they tease me to join them

the empty trees sway in the breeze

the world looks silent through the window

my mind wanders, to faraway places

to distant lands, to sun kissed oceans

my dreams take me away from my desk

to warmth, colour and squeals of delight

distant forests with chattering birds

floating lazily in downstream backwaters

hot sandy beaches and ice cold beer

a ring of the phone

I’m back in reality

gazing once more

outside the window

Tritina for a holiday

Morning sun rises in the sky

Vapour trails linger uniquely

Picture perfect, in a magazine

 

Flicking pages of a magazine

Each holiday unfolds uniquely

Midday sun is high in the sky

 

Silver lined dark clouds appear uniquely

Closing the pages of the magazine

Above me the sun leaves the sky

 

And darkness floats down uniquely
