my love we envy the beach as we listen to an aria of the sea against the shore an ensemble of French kisses are the gentle prelude to the acoustics of our love behind closed doors we perform a delicate concerto the world will never know a moonlight sonata we are violin and bow
No poem today. I wanted to let everyone know I am settled into my new home. Since I am catching up with blog reading and replying to comments, I won’t post a poem today to speed up my process.
Also, would like to announce Monday and Thursday will continue to be my days for posting poetry, but I will occasionally add a third (commentless) post in the week to post photos or share random thoughts.
And since I am often asked about what inspires me, I may be posting musical posts or videos with my poems. Music has always been my companion during lonely times.
Have a gorgeous week. Be back on Thursday with a new poem.
we lay on a lonesome beach tides shift between reality and fantasy red lips kiss the yesterday we never had as we dream of eternity fireflies illuminate the night forming horoscopes foretelling no promises of tomorrow
our eyes express things our mouths will never see the moonless sky torments our love is an unborn child who was never meant to be
it’s happening again I awakened to the overture of a familiar verse as vivid as a reocurring dream radiant rays of words came in waves blessing every pulse of my dawnless heart with resuscitating poetry
basking in the beautiful warmth of a never ending déjà vu today I fell in love again and again when a poem reminded me of you
This is exactly how I start my blogging day. My coffee mug reminding me I am the author of my life.
I have come to realize that New York and my current lifestyle consume so much of my time, my manuscript goes unattended. Too many friends, ex-girlfriends, parties, and after hours. There is always something fun to do.
With that in mind, on Friday afternoon I flew down Orlando, Florida in search of a new apartment (where I can write in peace). I decided on Central Florida because it is the perfect place to explore the entire state while I decide where I want to plant new roots. That is my birthday gift to myself.
I considered my beloved Miami, but it would only be reliving the same problems I face in New York (see above).
As my close friends know trying new restaurants is my hobby. So, tonight (April 8th), for my birthday, I will be dining at Cuban singer Gloria Estefan’s restaurant Bongos Cuban Cafe.
I will catch up with all of you when I return to blogging next Tuesday.
