A woman of mystery
full of grace
hides behind a veil of lace.

She hid behind a veil
No one could see her smile
she spoke with hypnotic eyes

How the caterpillar envied the butterfly
her grace her beauty, her ability to fly.
He sluggishly crawled from leaf to leaf

The king and the queen of hearts
ruled the land with compassion and mercy
no one went hungry, no one went thirsty,

She lived in the mountains wild and free
with her closest friends and family
she ate from the land, she reared her young,
life was bliss until man came along.

They came with spears, they hunted with guns,
ignoring the plight of the little ones
tears ran like rivers from youngsters eyes
as they lay there at their mother's side.

Milk dried, they slowly died.

Heads and hands
exchanged for money
as tourists barter
for souvenirs of slaughter.

Gorillas in the mist
dismembered to add to sadistic collections
existence threatened
extinction sadly imminent.

Needlessly slain for monetary gain.

Our very first kiss
such passion, such bliss, such love,
two hearts beat as one.

Two souls united
dormant coals ignite desire
my heart merged with yours.

Passionate frenzy
I completely surrendered
to arms so tender.

Imprints in the sand
washed away by gentle waves
memories remain.

The rose of love bloomed
delicate petals opened
perfume filled the air.

Rustic leaves, red, gold and yellow,
silently fall from the strong boughs of trees.
Littering walkways and grasses of green
catching the sunlight, making them gleam.
So elegantly they float to the ground
creating a path way that shimmers like gold.

The trees moan in autumn's breeze
their nakedness exposed.
Winter is dark and cold,
it hails, it rains, and harsh winds blow.
Branches are bowed with the weight of the snow
they shiver, they sigh, they wail, they cry.
They fail to see their silhouette
against the moon lit star lit sky.
They drown in their tears, obsessed by their fears.

Sunrise ignites kaleidoscope skies
and the blackest of clouds disappear from sight.
The tree of life is vibrant, alive, relieved it gives a contented sigh.
Buds begin to appear and soon pink blossom seduces the air
leaves murmur and whisper revealing their secrets to listening ears.

Summer brings forth the fruits of their labour
The trees stand proud and tall
laden with fruit ripe for picking
nature's reward for patience endured.

The circle of life is now complete
but soon the leaves will fall from the trees
and the cycle will start once more.







the circle of life complete

Isis roam the streets like pirates
waving black flags on turbulent seas
it's not gold or treasure they seek to conquer
