Ceri Naz Poems
A Letter To Your Smile
i know nothing between the earth and the terrestrial sky every now is shared in this world
Symphony Of My Soul
stretching at the sundeck and said ''good morning clear sky'' i'm flying the kites of poetry along the winds of eternity
Every Drop Of Forever
i have opened the letters of our hearts beyond the pages, beyond the chapters i heard echoing whispers in the dark deep down my soul, the unsought universe
My Name Is Me
now, look at me both staring at each other's dirt breathing with our fishy lungs with impurities and qualms
If This Piece Is For Peace
i thought of jumbo mambo showcase of rhythmic shaking hands a little extra or bonus i called simplicity
Pandora Escapes Unto My Hands (Where My...
time exist in my hands as dreams escalate to wilderness born from the ages of prodigy where wordsmith come
You'Re The Color In The Blindness Of Lig...
i have rehearsed reading through the spectrum wrapping the circle of fire i can feel your deep breaths
a pact between the feelings inner morphine lingers the resonance of fate breath by breath
I Am Peace Speaking
come talk to me in the woods run to me in the forest of greens breath me beneath the uprooted trees watch me inside the nest
a sweet escape from the ebony of dreams in tor and distances holding you
Here am I From the runway of innocence To another mountain Little did I know
Frozen In Your Fire
ridden with desire hot glances undress the velcro-straps like magnum sunden wraps caressing your inviting bumps
thy eyes are lights thy lips unsealed while kissing the sparks of serenity
those were the binoculars blended on a blind pocket once kept, now shaped in rhymes embroidered with riddles
Symphony Of My Soul
stretching at the sundeck
and said ''good morning clear sky''
i'm flying the kites of poetry
along the winds of eternity
oh so calm, pacified, composed
in the music and colors of your name
i found the missing piece
in the last laughters, i call my flame
