Blue eyed temptress

Blue eyed temptress
again haunts my dreams
morphs raging rivers
from calm blue streams
turns a flowered meadow
into a storm tossed sea
Blue eyed temptress
dream siren
calling me

I Wonder

From the last kiss to the pain
from the wonder to the rain
and I wonder once again
was I
the one
to blame
why I didn't hold you tighter
why I didn't ease my hold
why I let you wander so long
without being one bit bold
Had the last kiss lasted longer
had my ardor been much stronger
oh, I wonder
once again
was I
the one
to blame

In the midst of a
black and white land
of burnt skeletons of homes
a raven sits
on a blackened tree limb
looking down
at the ground
at a mass of black feathers
beneath puffy white clouds
in an azure sky
and in the stillness
of that moment
my soul echoes
the blackbird's 
silent cry
