Soul Mates

We are somehow connected in some spiritual way

Above days of temporality in an eternity captured

For you and me enraptured by passion unending

In heart dedication unbending without upending

Our lives in time in this world with love unspoilt

By the regularity of dripping dross of degradation

Caused by pain of unrequited love from the heart

Because we share the better part of the dedication

Of soul-bound affection sealed in courts of heaven

And leavened with mystical peace and equanimity

Beyond race and religion, tender age and gender…

We are soulmates

Written On Empyrean Papyrus Scroll

Life is living words written on empyrean papyrus scroll

To unfold in undulating time tied to still, soothing space

In harmony with hope and aims we hardly understand

As the Fates seem to command our delightful destinies

Yet only to surprise us with reprisal in requital for sins

Of unknown origin committed for an unknown reason

In some season of unbridled passion pushing our souls

Beyond virtue to villainy without our ever being aware

So that we dare to pen our last chapter in this chronicle

Of love languishing on the shore of enchanting Elysium

Where our empyrean papyrus scroll will be read aright

As the dark night of our soul falls with call of judgment

Stuck By Eros: A Tribute

Wrap you in my arms so tight, heartbeat to heartbeat,

Press my lips to your lips, kiss your chest, feel the heat,

Eyes like an ocean, pleasant to drown, I go down

To your tree of life where to yield my sacred crown,

And find an immortal river from which to drink

Just as our undulating bodies move in sync 

To the holy rhythm of everlasting love

Painted through ages by countless angels above,

Stuck by Eros, filled with his potion of passion

To breath your life till I lie lifeless and ashen

Feasting: A Triquain

You feasting

By my side keeping watch

As we lodge together by rivers

Of old with none told of our everlasting love

Safely secured by heaven so bold

In my heart forever

While you feast

 


Note: The triquain was created by Shelley Cephas, and is a seven line poem with syllables in multiples of 3 as follows: 3, 6, 9, 12, 9, 6, 3. This form is always centered and is most often unrhymed. 

Friends: A Canopus Poem

You and I are one soul in two bodies

Joined together forever by our love,

Intertwining together our stories

Written forever in heaven above,

And so shall we never be torn apart,

Nor our affection ever disposed of,

For we are above all friends of the heart

 


Note: The canopus is an invented verse form stressing a “continuous flow of thought,” attributed to Clement Wood in The Complete Rhyming Dictionary and Poet’s Craft Book 1936. It is a poem in seven lines, 10 syllables each, with a rhyme scheme of a, b, a, b, c, b, c.

I Went to the Sea

I went to the sea to see what I could see

But I couldn’t quite grasp the symmetry 

Of clear blue sky and the waves so high

Keeping cadence with your last goodbye

And the sigh I sighed with mournful cry

In vain to try to win you back before I die

But did you care at all that I could not see

In the sea what I came to see in you and me?

Lap of Luxury

Blow through my soul to rekindle an unquenchable fire

That burns higher than the flames of shame and blame

Because I belong to you in a sweet surrender so tender

Which the very angels long to remember in the heavens

Leavened with grace and love from above that descends

Into your tender heart in which I take my forever-part

As I lay my weary head to bed in your valley to be fed

So graciously by your tree of life to be so young and free
