Sit back and relax


Peace echos around me

the gentle tick of the clock

the hum of the fish tank

soft rustles of the trees

mellow coos of the dove


Slow deep long breaths

eyes restfully closed

minds eye focused

thoughts drifting in the breeze

the calm before the storm

silence is golden

A Drop of Red

Today’s poem is an Anacreontic poem, the love of wine.



The velvet wine touches my lips,

It feels so luscious in little sips,

My heart is full of loves desire,

My love for you goes ever higher,

Your red headiness mellows me,

My enjoyment of you will always be.
