just in time…
i  found you just in time
after all those tears
after all those years
without you

just in time…
you found me just in time
before all hope was gone
before all life moved on
without me

just in time…
we found each other just in time
now our hearts take flight
now our future’s bright
you and me
together

⁃˳¶˳⁃ if you were here, my Love ⁃˳¶˳⁃




if  you were here,  my Love

would you unbraid my hair

trailing soft kisses down my spine?

would you caress the small of my back

and set me to trembling?

if  you were here,  my Love

would you brush out my hair

leaving gentle kisses upon my shoulder?

would you fall into my arms

and let me hold you close?

if  you were here,  my Love

would you meet my gaze

warming me with your desire?

would you see the hunger

and the need,  bright within my eyes?

if  you were here,  my Love

i would never let you go

autumn memories

timid waves inching forward

as we fell in love

shy beginnings of  our lust

tender kisses on the beach

ϿϾ

water on warm sand

cool air around fervant need

our desire building

summer’s exit unnoticed

love’s flames all that we could see

ϿϾ

walking hand-in-hand

in the sunset of  our lives

autumn memories

wishing we could turn back time

start the journey once again

this is my attempt at  Man’yoshu Japanese Poetry  ~  Somon:  mutual exchanges of love or longing poetry;  tanka:  (5-7-5-7-7)   i wrote this as a love song between a man and a woman  { though it would apply to any couple,  no matter their gender }  the lines in italics are  her speaking and the plain text lines are  him speaking.  though this is given voice by two people,  i still tried to maintain the  “pivot line”  ( the third line of  each verse )  which can be read as the last line of  a verse comprised of  the  first three lines of  the tanka,  or as the  first line of  a verse made up of  only the last three lines of  each tanka.   so just to complicate this even more,  you can read it as entirely one poem;  you can read  her  lines  and  his  lines  or  you can read it  as the  first three lines of  each stanza/tanka  and then the last three lines of  each one.

“Anthem”   Leonard Cohen

lyrics ~

The birds they sang
at the break of day
Start again
I heard them say
Don’t dwell on what
has passed away
or what is yet to be.
Yeah the wars
they will be fought again
The holy dove
She will be caught again
bought and sold
and bought again
the dove is never free.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.

We asked for signs
the signs were sent:
the birth betrayed
the marriage spent
Yeah the widowhood
of every government —
signs for all to see.

I can’t run no more
with that lawless crowd
While the killers in high places
say their prayers out loud
But they’ve summoned, they’ve summoned up
a thundercloud
They’re gonna hear from me.

Ring the bells that still can ring …

You can add up the parts
you won’t have the sum
You can strike up the march
there is no drum
Every heart, every heart
to love will come
but like a refugee.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.
That’s how the light gets in.
That’s how the light gets in.
