Our Dance

Dance with me in the moonlight

Take my hand

Curve my spine with your hand a-slight!

Swirl on the beats

Gently but strong following the feet

Maintain the lines

Forming a whole is what you seek!

Lengthen the step

More complex it will get

Free the spirit

Unleash your regret!

Take this dance further up

See those eyes around you stare

Awe and spellbound, will they dare?

One step to the next

Clear the way, this is a concept

To lead so they follow

Into the depths so hollow!

Sleepy Head

Lying down in bed
across my open window.


The light of the moon beside
hazy and dark outside.

Wavy figures moving to and fro
Sinewy, long, always on the go!

Rustle of the leaves I hear
sway them the branches near
from the gentle wind that gushes.
An occasional bark or meow
distantly far, but my ear it reaches.

There it is again
hiding in the shadows
dancing in between light and harrow.

A figment of my imagination…
care not, for slumber I follow
my head gently hits the pillow!

Get Dreams and Dew

Sheltered Aura

Fight with your heart and mind

Worth it… don’t think it’s kind

Ask me then my opinion

As crazy as it seem to share to millions!

Bring out your love and deeds

Surface of reflection be your heart

Start another race, right on the mark!

Each being create this sheltered aura

Lighten up those positive fires!



A poem by Chriselda Barretto

From her book – “Must Love Poetry

That night – A snippet…

Him

He gently moved the strand of golden-brown hair

off her forlorn eyes,

intense was his search

as he gazed upon her

whispering: “Let me in, take me to that secret place.”

Her

She didn’t resist, how could she?

He was here now, next to her

after all these lonely years!

She always regretted what had happened

that cold, winter’s night in May.

She remembered him coming into their cottage,

taking off his boots with a thud.

Her body shivered from the echo of the loud bang
