MORE THAN A POT OF GOLD

This is poem Project #5 with Helen Sarita.... This was a great project to do with her and when we get to poem # 30, we will publish a book worldwide together.... Hope to have a big book signing here in the USA at Barnes and Noble in mid 2017.

More than a pot of gold..

A huge rainbow appears above our eyes
One side of the horizon to the other side
We look up in awe
We wonder if our pot of gold is at the end?
But then we question that
Why need that gold….
Because we are so much in love with each other
Our loving relationship is worth much more than any pot of gold
So no need for that pot of wealth
Because our souls are bonded as one
Our true love lives on so robust
While our resilient souls are connected as one
Making all that wealth in itself
So you will always mean the world to me
Never a doubt to that
Because you are my Philippine Princess
My Queen of exotic beauty
And my daily rainbow daily
Because when I look at you I am in complete awe
So you are the rainbow of my life and love
Your hair so bright
Eyes so loving and full of life
Dark and mysterious
Soul so stout and dynamic
Making that pot of gold worthless
So I pledge to you with all of this, that certainly there is not a day that I would ever give you up…
Always by your side
As we are each other’s rainbows
Fully in love
Fully full of life
Showing others that other colorful rainbows live in the lives of couples in love
To never go dim
Just to be bright everyday
Showing that true love can never go dim……
Daniel Franklin

How can our feelings be dimmed when when  we're non stop sparkling our light with the fullest of our love?
Do we still need to  find that pot of gold when happiness we felt are full of vibrant in this colorful world?
Your stare has made me truly in love to the highest
Your touch has healed my wounded heart to the finest
I need you more than I was expecting when our very eyes have firstly met
I want you crazy in my life till the end of my breath
Thanks to the heaven above that we've  mutual feeling of understanding
Thank you for allowing my heart be free from any burden
Your love have wrapped me to its purest
As our souls dance full of love with its best
I can see the charm of the colorful rainbow above that blue sky
So proud of the love witnessed by it's curving hues as we gazed up high
As we stare to each other, our eyes are sweetly talking
The gestures of our love were so much expressing
You are the world to me and I am to yours
I am a fairy so in love with you as your magic rolls
 You've successfully captivated my heart and all
And
I have completely captured that sweetest love of yours....

DREAM OF ROMANCE

This is poem project number 4 with Helen Sarita.. One more poem closer to our book in future.....

Dream of romance...

Winter is in full force
Heavy snow falls
Blown about by high winds
Whiteout is present and dangerous….
But we both spend time from the outside elements inside our cozy cabin
A cabin with a beautiful fireplace
The strong fire warms the room and our hearts
We sit in front of it gazing at the fire ambers
Holding hands, and talking about being trapped inside the cabin together
But instead of trapped, it’s our chance for a romantic night
We continue to sip wine, watch the fire, to also share sensual kisses as well
Our hearts are sealed with a warm coziness
Our souls are one
We are so much in love
No snowstorm will damper our special love or our romantic night
Because anytime together is special
And always what we strive for
Because we love each other greatly
And we will make the worse situation the best situation
Just being together
What is most important in a world of chaos
So as we sit by this cozy warm fire, I am so much in love with you
I am so lucky to be trapped inside with a woman like you
You are my everything
My girl
My dream
And I will never a squander a winter or summer moment to be with you my dear
As we kiss, and embrace each other lovingly for the rest of the night….
Daniel Franklin

~~~~~~~~~~

We bravely travel along that winter. What an adventure..
our fears, we conquered
A beautiful destination, excitedly waiting us ahead..
A thrill of that travel unwind both our spirits..
Yet, as we gazed upon the skies The dusky and raging clouds surprised our very eyes
the cold breeze to our skin deeply soothed
There, you started to ease the fear within my thought
The breathe of the see we crossed was becoming so cold
It had spoken to our nerves, telling all the emotions untold..
The language of love, on this ship spoke to its best
In this arduous journey, with your hands I felt the safest
As you comforted me, I heard your fast breaths
That was the scene of romance I have truly missed
Your eyes were full of passion and with your stare, I felt I was melting
Your every touch exhilarated the core of my being
We both never minded what was happening to the storm outside.
Only what we listened were the beat of our hearts.. inside
I closed my eyes savoring the warmth never I've tried for a long time.
You've awaken up all my senses, you opened my world, with your soul I did bind..
My strength had gone and I only relied to yours. ..
We let ourselves to be in heaven as the moment rolled
We let every croon corner of that cabin be the witness
We drenched our thirst as the vessel swayed by the ocean waves
I wanted to feel each second, I wished to hold the time.
Thanking life that moment, was one of a kind
As our ship continuously   sailing, we enjoyed to the fullest of our dreaming
What a wild imagination we both had crossed upon
While we were on our exciting journey to the next island
.. I woke up in my dawn, the weather was calm.
I reached out my pen ready to speak in my hand
It was smiling unto me and teasing me upon
My blushing face glowed with my dream of romance..

STARRY SKY SERIES

Poem #1

A poetry series project by Poet Mike and Me.

Starry night..

Driving my way on the valley of ascending zigzag road
Brighten by the glittering stars above the white gray clouds
I was tempted by the overlooking gleam of assorted city lights
I dropped by, wanting to savor the cold breeze of that night

I listened my speaking heart if she has something to say
She was just observing, silent, smiling yet empty
But I didn't understand why she was feeling so blue
Seems there was lacking in her in which I just didn't know

I looked up the sky wanted to share my sighs in heaven
I was waiting for the answer why my tears were falling
I was reminded there is one star you called after my name
I asked myself is that the most amorous to me comforting?

I wish I could really be the star you named Helen
Even though it sometimes appears and it sometimes doesn't
Yet it gives you a spark never ends even of its absence
Couldn't be erased by time like stars never stop its existence

Helen Sarita

"You Are The Star."
By,
Michael P Clarke.

Up in the heavens the stars are arrayed
In one star woman's beauty i see
Here in this star such love is displayed
This is your star and ever shall be
I shall sing to this star prose simple and fine
I shall sing my own love's serenade
Words they shall flow the sweetest of wine
Those from the heart are never delayed
You are my heaven's brightest star
Hope shines eternal when you are there
Never within reach always so far
Yet you shine on me with a peace so rare
In night's embrace i await for dream
Then in the night passion's fulfilled
The dream shall flow as we do deam
All life's rough waters they can be stilled
Always each night i shall look to the sky
There in the heavens your star shall appear
In the starlight glade we there shall both lie
In our dream our sorrows shall disappear
I hear now the strains of a wondrous guitar
As i see the face that sings in my heart
Forever in my night you are the star
and from my night you shall never part.

(In A Starry Sky Series.)

COME WHAT MAY

Love is Love which made us all glad.
Please know how lucky both of you  being bonded by God
Your long journey is a treasure to each..
The relation which might be imperfect
In a teasing of moments that passed,
Sharing the good times and the bad
Yet, striving and toiling  to be still,
keeping the words of promises and heart's will
Behind laughters and tears
Molding a remarkable strength,
Model of many couples
An interisting  life that rolls
Love can be expressed  and it doesn't  need to be perfect
But determined to be united
Blessings in the eyes and hearts of many.
Not afraid to love forever come what may
Beautiful lessons which are learned from thee
I am your friend , loving you wholeheartedly

THE FANTASY BEHIND

The fantasy behind..

Fall is finally here
Multicolor leaves high above trees
As colorful leaves swirl about the ground
Bright blue skies
White tall clouds
A chill in the air
But one of vigor and comfort
As we lay on the green grass together holding hands
Talking
Near such a beautiful blue lake full of wildlife
We gaze at Gods beauty
As we are enticed by each other
And our love
So grateful to love each other
And to have this strong union together
So we enjoy the dvay
Sweet kisses
With warm embraces
As we stare at each other
While the wildlife and landscape is so alive around us
We can feel it and see it
As we share more slow kisses
We are so in love
And nothing else matters
So as we sit near the lake
We reflect on our relationship
The good times
The good adventures
The smiles and laughs
And thankful to have this special robust love for a life time

Daniel Franklin

As I closed my eyes
bringing my soul to our
mystical adventure
My heart blooms
like a wild flower
your heart nurtured
You're bringing me
to the garden of
your Kingdom
Where we shared love
and happiness
without boredom
The whispers coming
from your greatest depth
made me soar to the
highest clouds
whilst you stared
upon my passionate eyes
A message of love
wrapped my whole being
as I was in content
slumbering my hunger soul
by the comfort of your
caring heart
You gave me  nothing
but magic
And promised me nothing
but love which was so full
of mystic
As I opened my eyes
I saw you handing a
bunch of flowers
that graces my illusion
I wished to closed them
back again and
dream forever
the fantasy behind
our romantic inks
of wonderment..

NAGPUNGASI NGA GALAMHAN

Nagpungasi  nga  mga  tanghaga. .

Nagmakulang  kanunay ang panahon alang  sa  akong  pagsulat niining  nagpungasi nga  tanghaga  sa  akong  galamhan. Ang  mga tinta kong maabiabihon dako  kaayog tinguha nga  mopadayag  niining mga  bidlisiw sa  kahayag  ning  akong  kasingkasing. Naghandom  nga  mapaambit  ang mga naalim  nga  mga  samad  sa  akong  pagbati niining  mamingaw  nga  palis samtang nagalingkod  ako sa   bakanan  niining  mapahiyumon nga pultahan sa  akong gamay apan  puno sa  kamahigalaon  nga payag  sa  akong   hunahuna. Gihambin  ko ang  mga kagahapon  uban  sa akong  matahom  ug  maanyag  nga  higala  nga si Rae Sayson. Akong  giampo  nga  kami  pagaaboton  pagusab  sa  among kapalaran  ug  maminaw  kami  sa among tagsatagsa ka sugilanon  ug among i-asoy  sa  tumang kamaya ang mga hudyaka  sa  among  kabatan-on. Pagkaanindot ug pagkamagagahom ni  Bathala. .nga  bisan  sa  kainosinte sa  among  duha  ka  mga  kalag sa  among  kagahapon, apan iyang  gigiyahan ang among  mga  panaw ning  kinabuhi ug nakat-on  kami  pagsayaw  sa  mga maanindot nga huni sa among paglakbay ning matanghaga nga kalibutan uban  sa  mga sungog sa kapalaran. Gihimo  kami Niyang maisog  sa  among  panglakaton  uban  sa  hugot  nga patuo  nga walay  hakna  sa  ugma nga  among  pagadumilian uban sa  gahom  sa  Himaya  nga  anaa  naglukop  sa  among mga  dughan. Ania kami gustong  ablihan ang  mga  nagpungasi  nga  mga  tanghaga  ning  among  galamhan ngadto  sa  mga  kasingkasing  nga  gustong  maminaw  sa  among  mga  pulong.

DAY BEYOND BELIEF

I did Poem Project # 3 with Helen Sarita... Day Beyond Belief

DAY BEYOND BELIEF

Walking hand and hand with you
Through a colorful field of flowers
With nature so beautiful and peaceful
Butterflies swirling around us
We talk and smile
As bliss is seen so clearly on our faces
We enjoying the sunshine and the deep blue skies
And the company together
Talking more
Smiling together even more
As we make our own music
So happy that we are together
Just sitting together
Looking eye to eye
As birds chirp so serene
Looking at each other in bliss
With us full of life
Enjoying this day beyond belief
Daniel

The mutual kindness of our souls rises to its greatest heights
Every moment for us seems a paradise
You're such gently having a kind spirit in your ways, In our stroll, you hold my hand and give me such an ease
The birds chirp to rejoice with us in this candid moment
 With colorful butterflies dancing with mystic melodies
 Our souls were long time friends in the valley before our births
 Being with each company is truly such a bliss
Our devotion of friendship is one of a kind model
When friendship were misunderstood, We still stand loyal and proud
As we are both in heavenly relief
Enjoying this day beyond belief..

HELEN SARITA IS MY NAME

Helen Sarita is my name..
I am moved by these beautiful  Women of Passion
I am just a reflection of the beauty of their souls.
We aren't  infallible women, yet we are passionate and true
We are the lights to those who are feeling blue
Our pens  are moving with deep emotion
dancing with the melody of our sweet illusion ..
we all celebrate life vivid and strong
gracing the lands where we belong
We inspire, support and love each other!
We're never hindered by our distance nor the difference of our time
We deeply understand the language of our friendship
We are the women of different religions
Yet we are the  symbol of Unity between our Nations.
Through our Poetry, we are able to express the symphony of our hearts
together with the rhythm of souls.
We stand out for Peace by the Power of our Mighty Inks!

Now I am crying with tears
not anymore due to pains
These are tears of love..
The tears of a soul so glad..

A DATE IN PARADISE

My poetry collaboration with Daniel Franklin

A Date in Paradise..

I’m glad I met you in a field of bright yellow sunflowers
With colorful butterflies all about
As the bright sun shined down on us in bliss
While the cool breeze blew through our beautiful and silky hair
As we looked at each other, knowing this day was such a great one to enjoy
We talked and talked
Learning so much about life and each other
Sharing smiles and good conversation
As we saw pretty birds flying about
Enjoying this picnic lunch together
With not a raindrop in the air
As the blue skies warmed our hearts and souls
As we were so glad we met
Because we knew from there that the days to come were going to be blissful and meaningful
Daniel~

I can see the butterflies
gracefully dancing
upon the vivid hue of these
beautiful flowers
Everything is full of life in
this beautiful paradise
This garden of wonderment
 is the witness of our smiles
As we comfortably talking
under the shadow of this
silent and hopeful tree.
This beauteous nature
mends with the joy we've
both experienced,
this grand privilege we both have,
listening to the interesting stories of our pasts,
 Is indeed incomparable...
as we listen to the laughters
of our gleeful souls
 Nothing more to dream for,
as this very moment is more
 than enough perfect
We are both in content of
this amazing togetherness
As you lay upon my heart
treating me like a princess
 I can see our eyes are in
 harmony of the passion of
 our beautiful imagination.
Helen~

TAKE IT EASY

Take it easy..

To my beautiful earth angel
I know for now you are uncertain
Haven't you trust your own wings?
It can even shadow to mellow some pains
It can even fly so high to answer one's  dream
Cheer up I am here with you, watching you over
In a far distance I'm reaching you to wipe your tears
I understand you need me hugging you so tight
No way to leave, I am with you in your battle fight
Your worries caused uneasiness of my usual day
Your loneliness made my sunshine  rise not so lively
Now, I let my spirit flies so high to grip your hands
It soars to the clouds and cross so many huge lands
Just to be with an angel in need of my presence
To tap her shoulder, and tell everything will go well
We will both worship God and celebrate in a blast
As He eases us while we give Him our profound  trust

Helen Sarita
