Theodora (Theo) Onken Poems
~ Death Of Innocence~
It seems like Light Years ago That sweet innocence Like a flower in the bud Growing in new existance
...And In The Spring
She's not really of the corporeal world Not earthy - nor made of stone She's more ethereal in her presence Much as a flower - fully grown.
(((After The Rain)))
I missed you the other day When the dew left its diamond glitter upon the grass And the squirrels and frogs were frolicking merry When the silence of daybreak calmed
I'Ll Be Here
For everything you are For everything you have been For making my life whole For awakening life in me again
The Cats In The Cradle (De Ja' Vu)
I sing to you a sweet lullabye- And rock your cares away... A beautiful destiny awaits your hand, Shaped and formed from Godly Clay...
White Winter Wonderland
Oh, these white winter walks exhilarate As does the crisp frost tipped air Blown 'cross the mountain tops and vales Light as a butterfly-snow flakes so fair;
Your Golden Pen
Entangled in the depth of your blue eyes ...Entranced and in total bliss... Embraced by your circled arms tight grasp ...Energized by your heavenly kiss...
Music (The Song)
It plays to my heartstrings... It is the music to my ears- ...It is the tender love song of my life- And the refelections of my years...
It seems the world has many ears- - I wonder, can they even hear me breathe? Does my every breath come across loud and clear? Can you even hear it when we leave?
It is the season of new beginnings... Spring removes her winter robe And fades into rainbows of hope; The sun shines its headlights into April-
The Universe (An Acrostic)
~Sun~ Super bright Ultra light
(((I Colour My World)))
Within the colours of this day- I find myself recounting the days gone by... Cherishing every blessed memory... While gazing at the sky upon high;
Once Upon A Fairy Tale
Once upon a fairy tale Or maybe just a dream I looked upon something special Something called: 'Maybe You And Me'
Walk Me Out Of Winter~
Walk me out of this Winter Vortex, beloved Please erase, all of this January white Melt the ice that dangles endlessly Remove it all from my very sight...
Somewhere in the dessert
She sits alone
To strings of past desire
In antiscipation of an oasis
Peeking into the sand
She sees his face
Absolute reflection of her need
A bouquet of hues of longing
