Trees Of Jasmine

Trees of Jasmine

Young lovers walking hand in hand,

Teased and laughed along cobblestone track.

They walked among trees of jasmine,

And spoke of a place called Tamarack.

Church mice happy to have a crumb,

Feasted at balls like faraway kings,

But at their cozy home and hearth,

The two alone cherished finer things.

Escape to a path few had tread,

Brought flowers by a rushing stream.

Curving trail… you lead, I follow.

In your loving arms is where I dream.

The Fall

The Fall

© 2012 by Kat Bastion


Misted platinum wafting by lures a nymph to dance,

Sprinkles falling, laughter rising, spinning pure romance.

Fragile wings spiral higher, flirting with the sun.

Captured by a passerby, innocence begone.

Discarded leaves tumble past in muted reddish hues,

Coldness slowly settles in, vibrance does recuse.

Sadness looks with longing eyes out into the world,

Kindness brings a soft caress, silken wings unfurl.

Loving smile, a whispered touch, sends a soul to soar.

Bonds are broken in sweet flight, freedom evermore.

To the heavens angel flies, heartbeat starts to stall,

Grounded, solid arms do reach, there to catch the fall.

Blame It On The Moon

Blame It On The Moon

Black velvet sky ablaze with stars,

Truly blooms the love of ours.

A smile lights up a stolen glance,

Lovers blessed to have the chance.

Snowy egrets take to flight,

The pair on wing into the night.

We dash away to take our time,

A feathered touch, so sublime.

Thermal currents make me soar,

Waves crash down upon the shore.

I hold you close, floating high,

From every gasp and trembled sigh.

When sleep claims us way too soon…

                   … I blame it on the moon.

Seven smiles

You’ve taken my breath away again, Diedre. {smiles a Number Six} #PureJoy

The Red Velvet Chair

Smile Number One
can make anyone
come undone
a bright megawatt
showing pearly whites
let’s the world know
you are in control.
Smile Number Two
is shy yet
your eyes peek out
from under long lashes
giving a glimpse
hidden passions.
Smile Number Three
you’re laughing now
wide open smile
head thrown back
crinkled eyes
in for a laugh attack.
Smile Number Four
is very sly, a smirk
one upturned corner
mischievous grin
subject to guessing
about what trouble you’re in.
Smile Number Five
is the polite you
expressing gratitude
but only half felt
as your mind is wandering
to someone else.
Smile Number Six
is pure joy
radiant glow
a goofy grin
to the world you show.
Smile Number Seven
is your invitation
to heaven
knowledge of two
and what can come true.
So smile your smiles
for the world to see
but save Smile Number Seven
just for…
