Summer Dreams

You lay back in the sun

after a long hard run.

The ocean’s waves lap the shore,

and you relax down to your core.

Your eyes close, your muscles unwind.

Tension leaves your body and mind.

As you slowly drift off to sleep,

happy thoughts, your dreams keep.

The sun shining, the sky clear,

nary a cloud found far or near.

Time goes by, then slowly you wake,

rising from the sand with a shake.

Running your fingers through your hair,

sand, sand everywhere.

Hair and clothes now free of sand,

feeling connected to the land.

Your feet moving, your mind now free,

your thoughts as happy as can be.

Towards home, you go, leaving the beach,

your dreams now feel within reach.

Silver and Gold

The tree is covered with silver and gold,

Everyone is happy, both young and old.

Christmas has almost come to an end,

New Years is now right ’round the bend.

The kids have put the presents away in their rooms,

The parents have cleaned the kitchen with brooms.

The table is clear from plates of food,

Board games and cards lighten the mood.

The family is happy, no one gets mad,

The holiday season makes everyone glad.

Florida Christmas

The boy kicked the sand beneath his feet,

Cursing the steamy Florida heat.

He used to love this time of year,

But now he’d lost his holiday cheer.

He didn’t want to celebrate on a beach,

His Christmas spirit seemed out of reach.

Then something hit him just like a dart,

Something that woke his sleeping heart.

Another boy walked up with a grin,

And said, a friendship we should begin.

This boy knew nothing of snowflakes,

On Christmas, his dad would grill some steaks.

And yet, this boy might be the one,

To brighten Christmas and make it fun.

Together, they combined what they knew,

And, as they worked, their friendship grew.

They turned the beach into a winter wonderland,

And celebrated Christmas hand in hand.

Monsters

Monster! Monster! Why are you there?

Under my bed, with your claws and your hair.

You fill me with so much dread,

Every time I go to my bed.

I hear your claws scrape on the floor,

As I race to my bed from the door.

Your growling and snarling keep me awake,

Until sleep overcomes my frightened shakes.

I am told that you’re not real,

But that is not what I feel.

I have proof that you exist,

But adults can’t see through your magical mist.

The fear you cause must come to a stop,

But I know I can’t call a cop.

So, to bring you to your grisly end,

I’ve made the monster in the closet my best friend.

Daniel, My Brother

I love you more than you’ll ever know,

And it hurts me when you’re feeling low.

You’re the best friend that I’ve ever had,

And I never want to see you sad.

More than a friend, you are my brother,

I’ll fix your mood with a smother.

I’ll give you a hug and kiss on the cheek,

And lend you my strength when you feel weak.

I hope we stay together all through the years,

To help each other past all of our fears.

Daniel, my brother, I love you,

With all my heart, this is true.

Brothers

Hanging out with my brother

Is great fun like no other.

Not just one, I have two,

triple the fun for me and you.

Sports, cards, or a video game.

Fun will be had, all the same.

We may fight but we unite,

our brother bond is that tight.

If you try to mess with me,

you must always mess with three.

I do love my mom and dad,

and having sisters makes me glad.

But this I have to say,

whether we fight or if we play,

if we’re home or at the school,

acting normal or like a fool,

if trouble comes and times seem black,

a brother will always have your back!

In the end, there is no other,

like the love of a brother.

Our Last Embrace

I reached up, brushed the hair from his face,

As I melted into his embrace.

The sky was hidden from our view,

As the volcano began to spew.

Ash and soot filled the sky,

I held him tight, we both cried.

I tried to comfort this man I love,

As fireballs fell from up above.

I knew that the end was near,

Trying hard to show no fear.

The volcano’s wrath finally found the place,

Where we clung to our last embrace.

The Vile Creep

The darkness envelopes my very soul,

Where once sat a heart, now there’s a hole.

I thought you sweet and so cool,

Now I feel just like a fool.

A handsome shell, an inner creep,

Your hate-filled words cut me deep.

I did nothing wrong, but try to love,

I thought you were sent from up above.

Now I know you’re just vile,

But it may still take awhile

For your words to leave my brain,

And my heart to feel less pain.

Wet Kisses

He clasps your hand, pulling you to his side,

his sexy smile is oh so wide.

A loving caress of your cheek,

makes your knees wobbly and weak.

The passion obvious on his face,

as you are pulled into his embrace.

Hands sliding down to your hips,

his tongue darting between your lips.

Kisses that are warm and wet,

are the best ones you can get.
