Beyond Midnight

Poem By Jo Lynn EhnesAllen

Beyond the stroke of midnight,
in a kingdom far away,
a fading soul is stranded
praying for the light of day,

he yearns to have the darkness
broken by a calming flame,
to bring his mind contentment
from this wicked worldly game.

Confused, he lays in silence
midst the demons of the night
where tranquil sleep's departed
leaving agony to fight,

but just when hope has vanished
comes a brilliance from afar;
approaching with rare splendor
is his priceless morning star.

Irradiating beauty
and surrounding him with grace
she frees him from the bondage
of depression's cold embrace

and wraps her love around him
in a blanket warmed by peace
consoling him 'til morning
when the daylight brings release.

He wakens to a whisper
and a tender kiss good-bye;
she promises his patience
will reveal the reasons why

and guide him 'til tomorrow
when his dreams won't be denied
beyond the stroke of midnight
where his morning star resides.

Love Is (Found) Is Love

is found;
are two, then shared

In Solitude

Alone, awaiting warmth to show,
I'm stroked by autumn's final breeze.
These vibrant branches once aglow
are now suppressed by time's disease.

Keeper Of The Key

Revealed unto my waiting soul;
the secret keeper of the key.
A tender touch unveils his role
as rings of love encompass me.

A Seasonal Affair

A frigid spell of arctic air
adorns this tranquil western scene;
a stunning glimpse of Fall's affair
with Spring's vivacious flower queen.

A Change Of Seasons

Autumnal winds caress my face
as summer's heated breeze expires.
The years have quickened in their pace,
foregoing my misplaced desires.

Don't Rewind

back in the deepest
(where no one wants to go)
inside a mind
