Slate Blue Gaze   Please click the link for Rosey and Jade’s feature, and the music prompt:  “Never Seen Anything Quite Like You”.


 Your pensive slate blue gaze

Traveled on forever…

To where, I never knew;

Thoughts moving like

Wide mystic river, or

Ticking time’s ancient clock.

Your posture, relaxed cobra,

Sent vibrations through

Tropical air, sands—

From a distance, I traced

Lines of your cheek bones,

Lips’ perfect curve,

Squared tension in your jaw—

Breathed your voice

Whenever I heard it,

Because my love was a lifetime.

I’ve never seen anything,

Before or since…

Quite like you.

Love’s Same Gift


Same gift every year

But you never mind

My heart wrapped in

Pale silk ribbons, lace


You untie my kisses

In between soft whispers

Tease that Time’s slowed

Us down…candle flickers
