Day 13 A-Z Challenge, M = Magnolia (Quatern)

~::~ Magnolia Dream ~::~


Magnolia! You make me yearn

You blossom wild, in grief I burn

Set ablaze for eternity

My immortal love, come to me


In every life, affection spurned

Magnolia! You make me yearn

He came, he left without a trace

Oh, how I crave to see his face!


Scorned love, in every existence

Passion decried of its essence

Magnolia! You make me yearn

Time after time in every turn


Waiting ‘neath the magnolia tree

For love to set my soul a’free 

I burn with the orange Saturn

Magnolia! You make me yearn!

Day 12 A-Z Challenge, L = Love (free verse)

~::~ Summer Love ~::~


In darkness I lay with my cellphone beeping!

Waiting for sleep to engulf me

And lead me down the dreamy passages

To a land where trees sing n birds danced

While I lay ‘Neath a purple foliage

With moonbeams glistening over midnight lily

And fireflies enlightening paths..

A silent zephyr playing with my curls

A love song adorning my pink lips..

I sit there by the azure lake

Awaiting his arrival with dusking sun

As the moon adorns the southern sky

The evening breeze brings his musky aroma

I hear him trudging along the valley

With faint footsteps

And with every step my heart skips a beat

As he nears, my cheeks inflame

With a tinge of ruby red

In the blink of an eye am in his arms

The place where I belong

His slender fingers contour my face

As my faint heart begins to race

A random rhythm a mighty thud

As furor begins to rise

A passionate Kiss upon rosy lips

Parched as if forever

A yearning dissolved

As fingers entwined,

We lay there, ‘Neath d starlit sky

Watching faint mars

Lost in desire, appeasing a fire

While the fireflies danced among stars
