just a speck

the sky won’t notice
dust falls off and disappears
million stars remain

future perfect

written in the past
gaining strength from the present
love will have survived

please let me

an ache so intense
it brings me down to my knees
begging for release

gray day understands

Gray skies have mercy
on heart darker than before
clouds provide cover

sometimes even day
does not deserve the bright sun
light taken away

faint sight of the moon
night is slowly descending
I tuck in my pain.

more than a tinge

your colors bleeding
to fabric of my being
forever a mark

watching you paint

strokes so sensual
they captivated boldness
in my skinny lines

007 ways you’re a star

(to Sean with love)*

i.
if I had a chance
to live this life twice, I would
love to be your girl

ii.
man with a big heart
trusting others, lost his love
King of Camelot

iii.
the heart of Draco
axed to slay evil, became
a constellation

iv.
officer Malone
no longer untouchable
died of gun ambush

v.
caterpillar drive
onboard the red submarine
captain defecting

vi.
reclusive writer
rekindled his will to live
through eyes of a friend

vii.
‘whatever my son
has done, I have done, and I
have done it better’

For NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo, Day 30 — a poem about/inspired by a fascinating fact.

*Did you know that Sir Thomas Sean Connery wore a toupee in all his James Bond movies? I was inspired to write seven Senryus about him, each making a reference to a movie in which he starred.

meet me there

mountains of feelings
filled to the brim and spilling
with nowhere to go

headed to the sea
of emotions miles away
its high tides calling

in hopes that one day
they will find a way to build
love’s estuary
