    Kiss orange glow of day's end
    taste sweet tangerine sun, ponder me
    I am citrus wine & sweet brew
    crushed berries in your tempered glass
    open your precious gems
    view the night sky
    find my trail of light
    star lit stairs to my heart
    enter & stay...

    Will your arms remain folded resolutely
    Across dark expanse of your manly chest
    like a net over many waters?
    I am a mermaid struggling
    Against your barriers
    Free me

    Free us...

    Above the glassy roof,
    are rainbows
    Songs of colors yet to be sung
    When will we know harmony again?
    exchange daisies, share thoughts?
    Look, the moon weeps her beauty
    onto your face
    I say my grace
    A prayer for you & me

    The sun greets the horizon with new
    look for me on the shore
    my basket filled with the sweetest
    sunny lemon drops
    come,

    harvest the day...

    shani.

    this was wonderful!!

    "When will we know harmony again?
    exchange daisies, share thoughts?"

    sometimes it seems as if the "harvest" will
    never be realized... but then... it comes...
    ushered in as subtle-ly as the changing of
    the seasons. :) i love the vibrant colors
    you used to paint this peace... had me
    loving fall all over again!! thanks for sharin'.

    itsallLove, chile.

    elayne.

    Thank you, everyone. I am always inspired by your comments and as well as your individual talents. I've joined other forums with the hopes of finding some place warm to soothe my tired poetic soul, but none matches the warmth that I've found here. So to all da poets in da hizouse, THANK YOU... from the heart.
