For Better, For Worse?

Concrete, steel, glass

Do they inspire?

A greengrocer …

gobbled by modernity

Tall skyscrapers

multi-storied complexes

super megastores

bear testimony

~

A blade of grass

a wildflower

things that pulse

with life

give way

to hearts of mortar

Flashback in time

Will we think differently

Now?

Under Tropical Skies

In the hazy moonlight

down by the seashore

magic is the moonlight

shining in your eyes

there we’ll meet

on the isle of dreams.

Soul Of The Eyes

Matter and memory

play of fantasy

creative imagination.

Hush Now …

My love

quiet is the night

luminous jewels

sparkling brilliantly

heavenly gems

glowing moonlight

love’s music.

Power And Folly

Three profound words

Consumed by power

A human folly.

A Field Of Dreams

Sunlight filtering

through leafy trees

handcrafted sculptures

the garden café

bustling with life

reminding us that

we are not solitary islands

we meet to catch up

so no matter how

lonely it may appear

you are not alone.

~

Write your words

or speak out loud

like on a stage

a field of dreams

where words are birds

set free from their cage

watch them fly

wings stretched wide

they glide through

the wind in a way

that is just different.

Let’s Go Alfresco

Iris@poetsmith

To the trattoria

by the river

the harbour’s

bustling nightlife

restaurants galore

cosmopolitan cuisine

~

Just sipping

a café latte

or savouring

a wood oven pizza

watching

the world go by!

~

Across the harbour

the bridge

brightly lighted up

and the view

of the magnificent

Opera House

catches the eye!!!

~

The summer night

full of life

starry sky

moonlit

reflections on the river

lovers stroll

holding hands

dreams are made of this.

On Moonlight Hill

That Red Rose Café

on a high and windy hill

The magical fingers

of the Spanish guitarist

mesmerising diners

captivating hearts

He strummed and he sang

into the night …

and Into the night

the misty moonlight

peering through the window

The world stood still …

Love … The Miracle

Land full of sunshine and flowers

as bright and blue as the summer sky

All that matters is the love in you

and the love in me

The miracle of love.

~

A pair of eyes

a special person

Love knows no season

Beautiful, evoking

sensory experience

Magical season’s song

Love isn’t love

until we give it away.

A Gentle Rhapsody

When the hills

kiss the setting sun

stars begin peeping one by one

a summer night

Smile, smile …

for a bright tomorrow …
