The untamed wilderness of heart-song…

Each heartbeat a longing for desire

Each step a call to the wild

The wind stirs up the dust of lust

Dancing in the moonlight

Circling your soul

Heat radiating from the Earth

Warming your thoughts

Power rising in the night

Simplicity and eternity

Woven into the galaxy

Stars twinkling with a mischievous grin

Sweet fragrant blossoms of the midnight hour

The scent of untamed beauty

The opening of a heart

The echo of a promise

The lure of a future

If you only step beyond the imaginary confines of your mind

And out into the wild

To wield your magic into the night

By Yours Truly a.k.a. Maria Montgomery

Dance…

I saw you on the carousel

Going round and round

Spinning freely through the clouds

I wanted to laugh and dance and cry with someone

I wanted to fly high with someone

I wanted to move that freely knowing my own worth

I wanted to laugh without worries

I wanted to sing in the morning sun

I wanted to feel a peace I’d never felt

I wanted you to bring that to me

So I stood up

I climbed the ladder to the sky

I decided it wasn’t you, it was I

Who needed to help myself

Past my fear of heights

Freedom is thrilling

But by its gates stands thy own sweet enemy

Slay the dragon that is thou

Then dance

Because Gods have all too little mercy

And soon our vacation on Earth is over

So whilst you can dance

The monsoon of life…

 

The monsoon is pouring down

The man in the moon

Is hidden behind humid clouds of grey

I feel dizzy in the mist

Reality’s shrewd games

Are not real at all

You walk off in your high heels

So confident of your stride

Only to realize you didn’t know it all

You look at the night sky for answers

Only to realize you don’t know where you are

Lost in a galaxy of beautiful stars

And chocolate cake with whipped cream

Lost in desires and fearful thoughts

Lost in longings and false perceptions

You look at people and they look at you

Then they walk off painting a different picture

Of your life’s tale

Your victories turn into measly little ego trips

Your failures are jeered upon; your lessons are forgotten

Then as you walk a lonely road

You bump into destiny on the corner

Asking what the madness is all about

And he just smiles at you

Telling you it’s what you make it out to be

So you have a date with destiny

You make out in the blurred lines of reality

Before you move on

And bump into Love

Which makes you forget your dizzy reveries

You don’t care if it’s real or not

You don’t care about the slander or the sneering tongues

You don’t care about disease and war

All you see is the beauty

Of the glimmering stars

Hidden in the monsoon of life

And that’s reality

An ode to the whisper of the wind…

I found you sitting on a little cloud in Heaven looking down on me.

I asked you “Do you like me as I am?”

You replied “How could I like you any other way? This is who you are.”

And in a clearing in the woods I found my voice, that I’d so long forgot.

I awoke anew with the rising sun.

In my hair glittered sunbeams of the promise land.

When all is well, beauty exudes from within.

Sparkles are caught in the fabrics of man.

It’s why lovers eyes open wide.

Yet love is already there, waiting to exhale its breath of beauty.

Drenching the body in its luster and its awe.

I heard his melody in the treetops.

The foreshadowing of the wind.

And I knew that I had finally found him in me.

The jester.

The man of many tales.

My heartsong.

Me.

Because the love of your life is within you.

What is will come to be.

And so it is.

Parasols of joy…

There are little glimpses of joy

hidden under parasols

that can be heard in the dripping of ice cream

and the breaking of waves

sun beams adorning people like halos

whilst time moves steadily forward

though it seems to stand still

as heat is slowing the pace of the Earth

A sentimental love poem…

I love how the heat of the desert sun
Makes you shimmer
Steam rising from your body
The intensity of your all seeing eyes
I love how the moonlight
Casts its cool light over you
How your curves seem like glittering silhouettes
In the night
I love the feeling of you at night
The way you speak to me
The way you make me feel at home
You are the greatest comfort
In you I see myself
In myself I see you
To know that exists
Is like a lullaby for the soul
A sweet whisper in the morning
Promising me
I belong
And when I look at you
I see beauty
The beauty of a soul that set my heart on fire
You speak to me
Like no one else has
It’s like you read me
Heart to heart
Eye to eye
And when I see you
I know that I am home
There is no other place I’d rather wake up in
You are my City of Angels
You are my home
