included in the 'revised' book

‘Violin Rhapsody’

 

I play a violin rhapsody

my soul to bare in the darkness

with only the moon to comfort my disparity


Per chance the day will come

and judgment will vanish in the wind

‘til then I will dance within my very own idiom

 

I’ll not worry about pleasing a soul

for I fit no mold—I am my own idiosyncrasy

in the night as my violin feeds me—makes me whole

 

My rhapsody will cause me to soar

so let them talk—say I’m different—an oddity

I’ll show them all their hypocrisy only makes me roar

 

Given the road I travel has always been rather unique

with my hair flying in the wind—I’ll dance

and I shall savor it as I reach my peak

while playing my very own

 

Violin Rhapsody

'Days Gone By Like Fine Wine

 

Days gone by

are like fine wine

aged and full-bodied

parallel to that

of new love

delicious

sensuous

but

when love

is spent

turns

cruel

bittersweet

and

only when

we breathe

in its essence

once again to

remember

its taste

how it clings

to our memory

like a rebirth

of our soul

can we

appreciate

days gone by

like fine wine

'Solitary'

 

The lighthouse stands remote and solitary

as a masterful beacon dignified and grand

with the mist all around us—hand in hand

wandering, I carry no woes while we tarry

 

Peace comes over me as no other before

history lives within those walls I’m sure

anticipation builds as we await our tour

to learn about times passed, its own lore

 

I breathe its essence of those times past

makes me feel as if all in reach is secure

and for that reason I feel its strong allure

I believe the secrets within endure to last

 

With the mist all around us—hand in hand

wandering, I carry no woes while we tarry

the lighthouse stands remote and solitary

as a masterful beacon dignified and grand

'Crescendo'

 

As I stand here alone

in our cove by the bay

I ponder the gentle rain

reminding me of another

time in this place where

happiness dwelled

we were young

you chased me

you caught me

we made sweet love as

raindrops kissed our skin

and the thunder roared

the lightning struck

and our crescendo

was like no other

as if we were one

 

While the years passed

and our love flourished

the children grew

and life evolved

yet

we always found time

to revisit our cove

by the bay

in the gentle rain

 

Yesterday

‘He’ called you home

and my heart weeps

my arms are empty

but with patience

 I’ll wait until that day

 ‘He’ calls me home too

then we’ll meet again

right here in our cove by

the bay in the gentle rain

where the thunder will roar

the lighting will strike

as we forever after

Crescendo
