in the shallow lake you thrive
with colorful and delicate petals
marvelously you rise up to inspire
in sparkling hues of pink ruby and sapphire

for poets you’re a seductive metaphor
in the thick of mud surviving in dreams
beautiful as you are derived
from the ancient Greek myths of nymphs

legions of races love your glow
an attraction in the water kingdom
a mythical nymph in the creek or pond
you’re a spirit living the life beyond…

My Miracle

_____________


Frightened by the outburst of storm
all of me became damp soaked with guilt
can’t fly with feathers wet with sins
I beg the sun to dry me not to wilt

Felt the mood of my spirit being sold
to the devil in exchange of a crate of gold
emptiness seized me and gave a rousing roar
embraced me closer to knock at Satan’s door

believe me, my life is in shambles
tears are washing away erected holy temples
my heart’s in pain going around in circles
take my hand, i badly need a miracle

in the worst of times i could only cry
helpless to be me i could only die
but thunder became so quiet like the moon
wounded heart played tough
and it’s a miracle too soon…

_______________


sometimes i walk
without my shadow following
with closed eyes
my spirit is on call wandering
in the black of time
it glides over the sea
not mindful of its mercurial height
until the zigzagging drop
became the close-mouthed dawn

my spirit is awake
finding ways of shaping things
building scenarios
out of a pyramid of words

the sun may be hours away
and a tinged of preparedness
drops the immaturity of ripeness
of doing things right….

rain falls with some might
and fills the emptiness
of myself

my spirit rise
the mood of your embrace
warms me more

let it rain, let it rain
’till the clouds display the sun
as we start up the fire


i lend you my breath
to thaw your chilling lips
and let warm kisses rain

i’ll be the canopy
keeping you dry from rain
drops from heaven leave no pain
it’s yours and mine for us to gain

Castle…

take your wings and fly
to the summit of a cloudy sky
lift your spirit and together you must try
the showers will hide an imminent cry
take your words in flight
when your dreams deny
when the limits of asking is too high
then realization will bring light
it’s time for a change
pick the perfect shade of rays
not the overcast or somber
the one just suited for your sight
not the one that’s very bright
for your dreams will go blind
build your castle on the ground
you can never build it in the air…
