A Leap For Love

One who fears the heights
And another lone of heart
Struggled from isolation’s depths
Hoping to make a fresh start

One who always occupied
The same solitary spaces
Through a curious window found
Another who traveled to many places

One who never really searched
For a lifetime counterpart
Dared make a real connection with
One who knew more of Love’s Art

One who never tried, yet true
One who tried and lost a few
Steeled themselves as small steps they took
To precipice’s edge to risk a look

Today is an ephemeral ghost... A strange amazing day that comes only once every four years. For the rest of the time it does not "exist." In mundane terms, it marks a "leap" in time, when the calendar is adjusted to make up for extra seconds accumulated over the preceding three years due to the rotation of the earth. A day of temporal tune up! But this day holds another secret—it contains one of those truly rare moments of delightful transience and light uncertainty that only exist on the razor edge of things, along a buzzing plane of quantum probability... A day of unlocked potential. Will you or won't you? Should you or shouldn't you? Use this day to do something daring, extraordinary and unlike yourself. Take a chance and shape a different pattern in your personal cloud of probability!

Month

Therty hath September,
April, June and November,
All the rest have 31,
Except February alone,
And 28 days in a year,
But 29 in each leap year.

Taking the Leap (For Tara & Ez)

Love has such a great way of growing
Often by leaps and bounds lovers say
Loving hearts have a way of knowing
When to decide on a Wedding Day

So Leap year is really quite fitting
Extra special to happen this way
Leaping hearts fluttering and flitting
With joy heading to a Wedding Day

Love does not tell time by a clock face
Calendar neither holds any sway
Love moves on at hearts very own pace
So do two hearts chose a Wedding Day

Enjoy all the moments that will come
There’s not really much more I need say
Two hearts are rejoicing in one home
Having heart-picked their own Wedding Day

S.o.b

How do you not know what day it is?
When you wake up at 6am tuesday morning
when it's really wednesday.

When you tell your spouse happy anniversary
three week's to late

When there's only cereal left
and the expiry date on the milk is the seventh,
and it's the 18th

When it's a leap year
and your celebrating new year's on the 366th day of the year

When the return date on your library card is the 6th,
and you was certian it said the 9th

Aint that a bitch.

An invitation to Warlords from a Songbird

Hey! That boasting new year has come again
And I hear a rare bird-song from a tree-top.

'My little ones sleep in the nest quietly
But they are scared of bombings.
Please try to stop at least in this leap year.
My birthday falls on February twenty ninth
And I celebrate once in four years.
Leave all the rubbish weapons aside that kill the humanity.
I invite you all without any hesitation,
Sir, I hope that you bring the true peace for my humble party.'

* Do they come for the party?

A Distressing Bedtime

It is now bedtime, the soldier of times,
We sleep half of the night, just tonight.
The rooms of a leap year are vast,
It was bedevilled with ghosts far too superior
To the motley crew of ghouls last year,
A clue of them died, like a crown of kings.
Distressing paws of blood escaped just past the day,
A dialect arrived by mind, of a faraway language.
The paws of a wolf became the dream of a naughty kind,
Lines of light arrived and departed.
It was now bedtime again, the very next night,
Full of mystery and suspense.

Shirts & Gloves

When Im back from the road
And youre out on it
& Im tired of this distance
& I believe its over-rated.
And this phone tag game is endless
The novelty is wearing
Im hoping time will pass
Without any assistance
Or convincing.
Road rules apply
Theres so much action,
Youre getting busy.
Ill call your cellular phone
To tell you tv night was
Lonely without you
& so am i...
So am i.
It seems our day keeps falling on a leap year.
So many high points on this last leg.
I cant wait to recount them

Come Out From Your Shell

30 days has September!
April, June and November;
So, come out of your shell if you have the muse of love to share! !
Because, this poem is all about you;
And, all the rest of the months have 31 days!
Except, February alone which has 28 days,
But 29 days in a month for every leap year! ! !

Unconscious

Have your eyes, ever gazed upon
an old woman
waltzing, sightless
in front of you?

Have you ever thought of tenderness
smelling the hair of a fresh bathed little one
on the first day of a leap year spring?

Are these moments real or unconscious dreams
are you dreaming of a coaster thrill
in the middle of January in Orlando?

Have you been mesmerized
by an Angel named Chris?
Only to be wakened by
A vivacious hospital nurse
On your death bed
Now that, I would dread

A consumptive Coolie's gossamer daughter

A tattered coolie who was born in a leap year that comes home after a strenuous day's work?
He loves his coquetry daughter.
Her mother has disappeared when she was an infant.
He thinks that he has to make a cordon to protect her from the ruffian the apothecary's son.
His wife eloped through this rickety fence and he is scared of his precious daughter's future.
He dreams one day his daughter goes right of the passage with rituals.
But who knows and how long this skeleton survives with his sing-song?

Happy Tirthday 2 Bim!

HAPPY TIRTHDAY 2 BIM
In the photo you're mighty slim.
For the upcoming election
R U done with witness protection?
HAPPY TIRTHDAY BIM!

Happy day of your birth!
What planet was it, was it Earth?
I see that your chin
Is receding again.
Happy day of your birth!

How many candles will you
Have on your cake, more than 2?
You weren't born in leap year,
And the hair in your ear,
Tells me how many candles have you!

If this letter was simply a song,
Would our family be singing along?

The Nightmare of Man

Man works throughout life
from childhood to adulthood.
He builds his place in heaven
sitting leap years in classrooms
harvesting diplomas for his career,
saying the best words of himself
as investment for job applications.

He daily climbs up the ladder as goal
He is obsessed of success and ambition.
From a house to land, bank savings
or loans, he continues to strive on.
But at a wink of an eye, all that he
has struggled for, all that he collects
to own, are lost and gone irrepairable.

For sure enough, the flames of fire
eat up all what he has acquired
within his years and decades in life.
Typhoon, tsunami, flood and cyclone

The reappeard act

The reappeared act

The day you left me allowed me to feel so much joy on thee inside that being free never felt so good! ! I thought I'll have a break down! because  of your ability to show up and show out and  hit me time and time again in the heart with a surprise that I thought I'll die. I became a custom to your baggage of tricks  and disappearing, reappearing acts like Im some **** walking in and out of my life like you became the  leap year or Robin Hood because you took. But I thank YoU! ! ! ! Because I needed to take the time for me to rethink that I deserved better then this! ! ! ! !
 I came to the place to find me in the mist of what I allow to happen, to happen! ! ! go on far to long. That when I reposition my thinking I found my worth! and I for gave me. Then what I thought was going to be the hard part became so easy I turned  around and for gave YOU! The reappearing act! ! ! ! ! ! !

Notes from a frustrated soul's diary

'Jivaeri' (Jiva-eri) .Precious jewel or treasure.
'It's a beautiful, traditional Greek Island folk song of unknown authorship.I grew up listening to this song and it always had a special place in my heart.So I recorded this version with the hope of exposing it to a wider audience around the World.This song is about a Mother lamenting the loss of her child due to emigration.(In Greece many families send their children to foreign lands with the hope of a better life.) In retrospect, the mother regrets having sent her child away and the pain she feels has caused her to now humbly and quietly walk on this Earth.'
-Yanni

I love her short & sweet attitude
The month of February!
As she has only twenty eight days
Unless a leap year.
If other months are like that
What a great comfort?
How sad this perishable garment of body with rickety ribs,
An innocent feather weight wrestler
Who walks three hundred and sixty five days continuously?

* To Yanni for his CD 'Ethnicity'

May It Travel

May the travel be polite and wholesome,
Like a soldier and a general in comparison,
Like a player of books and stationery,
Last of all, like the prose of a writer.

May living a line of laughter be a line of work
And worth, so that laughter ensues.
I endure a cure from the doctors of leap years,
Those lunatics that manage to cut the life so much.

Travelling that deep is too far into success,
Inside me is a manager of wits, of love with one.
They thread along the clothes, these tailors are in love with us.
My love for textiles has improved:
May you promise others to wear a travelling mission,
That is always to know for a deep success.
