Living With the Wind

She loved living 
with the wind
 
Her feet on the ground 
and her head in the clouds 

The wind took her 
by the hand and
she followed

Like a kite 
not meant to be 
earthbound 
 
She bestowed her love 
with abandon 
but her attentions 
were brief

For the wind
would call to her

Yet, like a fragrance 
you can't quite name...

for a few, 
she lingered
 
For those, 
she left longing 
in the night
never to be forgotten

And those few
whispered her name

Seeking the girl
living with the wind

Reprised-Eternally Bound

The moon whispers 
his secrets
only to the sea

the sea rushes
to him
faint with passion

surging against the shore
reaching for her love

the moon blushes darker
swollen with desire

these lovers
distant lovers

each
never to caress
the other

yet
eternally bound

*This is an older piece of mine that I came across and
decided to reprise it. It's one I've always really
liked. The idea of the moon and the sea in love with
each other but never being able to touch.

When Dreams End

*By Penny Wilson And Charles Robert Lindholm

Deep asleep 
and dreaming 

The vision 
of your face 

Came to me 
last night 

With sweet lips smiling 
and your eyes sparkling

You came to         
hold my hand                   
and walk with me
down memory lane     

I felt your touch 
and saw our love  

I can't wait until
the dreams end
and we can be 
together again

Dancing with the angels

where we have a 
never ending future
to share

this poem. We bounced the piece back & forth via emails until we came up with
what you see here. It was a joy to work with Chuck. I hope you enjoy our

Another Dream

I awake 
from another
dream and you were right here  I touched you I know I did I come back to myself
as your scent lingers I close my eyes an attempt to hold you to recall your last caress I ache for your touch it's no use you’re not here leave my heart be  stay out of my dreams Damn you

Telling My Secrets to the Stars

I awoke

with a start. 

The taste

of your kiss

still lingering

on my lips. 

For answers

I look

to the night sky,

telling my secrets

to the stars. 

The man in the moon

listens

but offers

no guidance.
