Vision in White

Light…blinding as weary eyes struggle to see

A vision from lore, dressed in white

Stands before me with outstretched hand

“Walk with me.”, he whispered

I, incapable of uttering a word,

Am I mute,

Am I stunned to silence

I cannot fathom

As unshod feet touch the naked floor

I place trembling hand– in hand

“Be not afraid.”, spoken with a tender smile

“I’m not.”, escapes from parched lips

Peace washes over me as I shuffle

Lead by the kindly stranger

Toward the light nearer and brighter

I was not afraid– to my surprise

Weariness replaced with joy

I longed to reach our unbeknownst destination

Enveloped in the warmth of the light

My Guide in white became clear

Eyes opened wide

Heaven lay boundlessly before me

I was in the hand of God

A Passionate Embrace

Sweethearts converge in a passionate dance,

Lovers embrace, eyes locked in a trance.


Gliding on a silk and satin tidalwave,

To the other their hearts each selflessly gave.


Souls intertwined in a romantic song,

Soaked in the potion of their love for so long.


Their rhythm flows with each beat of their hearts,

Breaths come more rapid as ecstasy starts.


Invisible to the world, it’s existence fades,

Consumed with each other their bodies obey.


Observers may say their infatuation can’t last,

Their hearts disagree as pulses flutter fast.


A state of euphoria envelops and besets,

Neither lover capable to resist or regret.


A sensual moment shared between two symbiotic lives,

Stokes a fire eternal as their yearning grows and thrives.


Those shy of passion these feeling could not know,

Concerning matters of affection they dare never go.


Where love is involved it grows hot and grows quick,

Feeding the flame is the eternal trick.


For romance to last the heat of passion must run deep,

Cherish and be devoted to the others heart you keep.

Gone Is Gone

By D. R. DiFrancesco


Wasted away with reckless abandon

Abused and neglected as though nothing to lose

Elder years bestow the treasure most deeply cherished

For in youth we’re blind to the riches worth

Trusting the vein will flow eternal

“till tragedy or life doth rear it’s head

Once lost to gluttony its lost to eternity

No matter how hard we try to relive

Regret can destroy through foolishness folly

As we know not when we be called back home

Squander not the gift so limited and precious

Share freely with those you most dearly love

The value of time cannot be embellished

For fleeting moments once gone are gone
