Waking Up A Dream

dew


It lay benign
Once upon a sleepless dream
Tossing and turning I succumb
To the magic of a dream

Arms circled around me
I lay my head on your shoulders
I close my eyes escaping
from the storms within two hearts beating

It corners my thoughts as I linger
in an essence of sleepless wonder
I toss and turn not missing
the moments that touch my soul breathing

It stays in my mind just lingering
and I wake up with a smile just knowing
I had in you my prince of love
and I woke up...
Just waking up a dream...

Sunrise Rhapsody



I lean towards the morning with the sunrise in view
Watching it rise above a mountain of dew
I take a walk just measuring the moments anew
Just like a new day grazing past a sky filled with drapes

I take a turn running after the picturesque in queue
As I lift myself above the grass green aglow
Just watching the moment the sunrise comes in view
And sitting on a blanket of a grass filled with dew..

In an amazing kaleidoscope of colors I am me in between
The glow of the sunrise on my face shining pretty
and the song that comes to mind I sing so heart-free
I wait for the moment when the sun rise somewhere dawn East..

I wait with abated breath watching the mountains high for the Sunrise Rhapsody..

The Recital

Petal Pink Keys - Lens Art-by-Florene



Ebony and Ivory 
White and Black
The music sheet with notes that sound
much like the do re mi...

The pianist its master
Playing gentle keys marking the notes
in a jugular - fashioning a song..

Tra - La - La, The Sound of Music
lingers on an electric atmosphere
Causing words that stumble from
noted songbirds align with the notes of the keys
played by the pianist in a Recital..

Colors of My Mind





I walk a shade or two
with colors on my mind,
I spin a wheel or two
with different shiny silken wool,
I waltzed the dance of love
just remembering its blue
The color of Love
and the color that says I do..

I spin a little tale
with those colors of my mind
I tell how much it takes
to remember all those lines
I write a book or two
and find my words in colors too
I wish that you someday
will see it bloom..

The colors of my mind
and my wish for it to bloom
I'm steadfast in my love
and I want a girl like  you
and I waltz the dance of love and
share a glass of champagne with you
and dream of all those colors
and make them come true

Femme Fatale

Beautiful_girl_cartoon : Beautiful girl with cartoon woman


I know how you view me
I see it clearly everytime I look into a mirror
A little pout with made up lips
A flashing smile to brighten my look
My eyes the color brown
Made up with a luscious mascara dip
I draw a line on my eyelids bare
and it draws an interest in how people stare
My eyebrows drawn creates a charm
encasing my eyes projecting a doll..

I know how you view me
As I dress to impress and attract
With a matching ensemble I walk in style
Of a woman confident and with a story to tell..

Not many would see the same in me
Many misses the substance in me
The eye attracts a beholder who sees
that I am more than an object of fashion
with beauty skin deep.

Dancing with the Colors of the Sky

Somedays I see the world from a different perspective.
One where the colors mingled
 with the hues of acrylics makes it
a vision to behold.
I breathe the scented air savoring the hours when the sun
dances with the clouds and creates a perception of a scenic splendor.
I change my vision accustomizing myself with the display before me
projecting a subdued version of the day just hours before.

I stand watching in amazement.
A transformation of the day into a different timeliness.
Telling us to bade farewell to a day of madness
and inviting us to embrace the hueres de soir , in other words we
romance the evening hours.

Have you ever thought of romancing the evening with the sun turning colors

and you walking hand-in hand with nature and your true love?
The sky standing witness as you embrace its breathtaking beauty which in turn

makes you blush with the hues of its different shades,
You walk the steps made for dance and waltz the hours to bid farewell.

Somedays I stand just capturing these moments of intense passion
and enthrall in the wonder of an astounding ensemble.

Fireworks display in Bratislava; New Year 2005.


Blazing in a trail of colors 
Passing silent comets along the way
Whisking through a collision of constellations
Breaking into a million fold of spheres

There seem to be a festive reason
For the display at hand
Or maybe its just a celebration
of a New Coming Age

Gentle does it spring upon us
Wishing all things nice
Get-togethers and reunion
And family time

Have you ever had the chance to 
play a part in a crimson paradise
For when you look up ahead and see
The colors all look so sublime
and May they fill your life
with reds roses and carnations of white.

Here's me wishing you a Happy and Prosperous Chinese New Year 2013.
Gong Xi Fa Cai. :)

A Harbour of Crossed Design




Following the creek she once waded knee deep
in shallow waters,
In the distant a howling cry of a wild animal
creating an atmosphere of a wilderness in the crevices
of a jungle added a mystic to her destiny - one she was keen to explore.

The sun was high, nay not to be felt nor seen but hidden
between the clouds and the day seem fatigued without it
adding a dreariness of a hollow echo that followed its path.

The water seemed lucid and she lavished in its soak,
Further up a bridge of stone narrowed a widened path
curved to add a dimension of danger to those who walked.

A bridge that many crossed on their travail or be it for their travail
A 180 degrees added to its jagged mossed structure shading the
waters that it covered in its angular build.

For she knew not when the bridge was formed nor how many it
helped cross the bounds but stationed as it is between the lands
of tribes where animals and men crossed un-watched, the need
to reach the other end of line makes it a harbour of crossed
design.

A Day In the Life of a Woman - That's me..Shobana For You






There's goes the alarm - wake up call...rush hour take heed!!!

I need to pay the bills..they are outstanding
I need to count my notes and see if they suffice..

I need to call my agent and tell him my book is done
I need to get the plumber and fix that leaking pipe

I need to meet my bankers and get that cheque book done
and do a little cross-country to pay my summons on time..

That's me..Shobana for you..

I need to call my kids.oh dear where have they disappeared
They were just running round my feet
and now they are overseas..

I need to take that oath of abstinence from chocolates for sure
Oh look, look again..its that crummy weighing scale
Telling me there's that added pound..with a smirk!

That's me ..Shobana for you..

I need some more time, more time to make that call
and get my client's on line to say hi, I'm all done..
Where's that blasted calculator telling them my fee
Dear Lord where's that pen I had in hand - now its M.I.A.

Where's that,  lose that, find that , do that
mum take that, mum I'm late, Oh No, I've spilt coffee
Oh My, Oh dear all I need is a holiday somewhere far away
from me...

Rush hour over - I'm heading home..Great there's the traffic
jam all the way home!!

That's me..Shobana for you  :)

A Blue Thunder


A blue thunder I named it
Like an embossed picture it showed itself
Against the sky, the backdrop white and blue
I guess it was made to reach heaven too...

One day I walked a little dazed with a shattered heart
and as I gazed up, I saw a light above
Dazzling white beneath the sun of white
A dove with a mission to awaken my spirit
and leave me in a world of peace..

One day, I saw the lighted dove
I reached out, it just seemed too far to touch
My tears mingled with the sun drenched trickle
of rays that dried up my tears
and gladdened my heart and froze my fears...

A blue thunder against the sky
the backdrop white and blue
I guess it was made to reach heaven too
for I heard it whisper through the breeze
that caressed my face with gentle pressure
" I bring you tides of peace.."
