  1. My Lady Rosewood Himali, Namaste πŸ™‚

    Keeper of The Treasure, high over my horizon,
    You are my Shining Cinnabar: I your melting Kaspar,
    Your Red Knight whose Heart is gently rising
    Ascending to the side of his Ruby Red Star.

    ~*~

    Sweet dreams Ice Queen.

  2. Greetings My Lady Himali, Namaste πŸ™‚ My, how beautiful you are as you rise to glow and glitter like an ice-diamond: always radiant as your Red Knight’s Bright Star.

    Never before have I flown so far, so fast, so hard and true,
    Never before have I raced to your door, eager for the hour of Dawn!
    Never before have butterflies fluttered, flittering my feathers flap,
    Landing early outside your door, perspiring a little perhaps.
    ~
    Might that be rapacious hunger: the rushing bloom of swelling fire?
    The Rising Bull Burning Flame igniting my Heart’s Desire?
    Might it be the vision of you, dreamt by your imaginative Flier?
    Might it be the prayer we’ll share upon our sweet Golden Hour?

    ~*~

    Your Red Knight asks an indulgence, My Lady Himali.

    “Ruby Raven Queen, will you dance with me from far away?”
    “Dance with me at dawn this day?”
    “Dance with me all the way to dizzy heights where some might say,
    “Is Paradise to be Found, a New Eden bound within the Heart of Himalayan Himali.”
    “Nature’s polished Rosewood piece, my Muse, my Lady, my Angelic Priest.

    ~ Move Closer ~ Phyllis Nelson ~

    Hey baby, you go your way
    And Ill go mine
    But in the meantime

    When we’re together, touchin’ each other
    And our bodies do what we feel
    When were dancin’, smoochin’ and swayin’
    Tender love song softly playin’

    Move closer
    Move your body real close
    Until we-ee-ee-ee
    Feel like we’re really makin’ love

    Ooh-ooh, move closer
    Move your body real close
    Until we feel like we’re really makin’ love
    ~
    So when I say sugar-are and I whisper I love vou
    We-e-ell I know you’re gonna answer in the sweetest voice
    Sayin’ my pretty la-ady
    I love you too-oo-oo-oo-ooh well
    ~
    There’s much room for passion, ooh-no-no
    There’s no room for fears
    When, the love flows smoothly between us, baby
    My dear-ear-ear-ear-ear

    Move
    Move closer
    Move your body real close
    Until we feel like we’re really makin’ love
    ~
    Woh-oh-oh, move closer
    Move your body real close (1)

      • My Lady, My Queen,
        Elegant and eloquent, your quill quivers enticing,
        Exciting the fluttering of my feather.
        Breathless I endeavour to savour your flavour,
        Your pleasure I treasure, each deep full measure,
        I drink from Himali’s Ruby Rose Cup.
        ~*~
        The verse is my pleasure, inspired always by thoughts of dancing with you for a Lifetime: and one day waltzing us to the Roof of the World where we will dance our last Tango together beneath the Stars. My Love, Himali.
        Always your Red Knight and Alkemi Baron.

  3. Good morning My Lady Himali, Namaste πŸ™‚

    Should I fly through the window or knock at your door?
    I only mean to leave a note for you to adore.
    Or paw over throughout the day when a little bored,
    Or carry in your Black Bird beak as you gently rise and soar.

    ~*~

    Tis only a flying visit my Love, you know I’d love to stay,
    And idle away eternity with you here every day.
    Just so I could glaze over, drowning in your sea,
    Wet to the core with happiness, for my sweet Rosewood Himali

    ~*~

    Have a wonderful afternoon in paradise shining your rubylight. Your Red Knight he misses his Himali. Take care Ice-Queen.

  4. Good morning My Lady Rosewood Himali, Namaste πŸ™‚

    Too late at night for a Raven to tap on your door,
    Instead I’ll lay this dote quietly down upon your floor.
    I’d not want to wake you or break dream’s mystery,
    But, O to wake you! To see you smile! O My Lady Himali!

    ~*~

    You know, I had to come by, I couldn’t stay away.
    One day away is far too long a day to stay away, from you.
    Yet your Fire never fades even from this far away,
    For your flame ignites a torch in my heart, each and everyday.
    ~
    How was your day My Lady, how did you fare?
    Or perhaps that should be raven-dark hair, are you fair?
    And well also I hope, your day a pleasure not a pain,
    And you my Lady dreaming of falling Himalayan rain.

    Snowy sweet dreams my Himalayan Ice-Queen,
    You’re my favourite flavour of Rosewater Ice-cream.

    Tapety Tap. Tapety Tap. Who is there at the door?
    Who just paused for long enough,
    To leave a doting note upon your floor?
    Who was the Quicksilver Messenger,
    With words penned just for thee,
    From a Knight on a hill overlooking a valley,
    To is scintillating diamond, Lady Rosewood Himali
    ~*~

    I trust you woke refreshed from slumber, wearing your dimples and a smile?
    First day home from holidays, you’ll be busy yet a while,
    Catching up with chit and chat, making ready for the week ahead.
    But I hope Himali will find space for her, to rest her pretty head,
    Close her eyes and drift away, to long-forgotten Avalon instead.
    ~*~

    I shall strive to return My Lady, before last light of day,
    And leave a line or two just for you, so that I can say,
    ‘I hope your day is abundant with Happiness in every way,
    A day filled with Similes and Love, from your Red Knight far away.
    He misses his Lady, always.

    Take care perfumed Lady, my redolent Ruby Rose.

    God Bless Himali. Take care of you in all ways always.

    A tune for your lips, my Harmonic Queen.

        Please forgive a cheeky Knight, in anticipation of his ways,
        He’s been absorbed in Fairy Tale, for the past couple of days.
        Working hard to learn his craft, with words and form and plays.
        Whilst in a Forest far away, a wily waggish wolf strays!

        Scented sweetly and redolent, enchanting with rosewood spice,

        And chaperone Lady Little Red Slice!

        From the crest of Dewin’s steep-sided Bryn,

    Swift as a Love-tipped cherub’s arrow,
    A doting note arrives upon the ‘morrow,
    Listen out again for quiet tap at your chamber door,
    Look out again for a note left upon your floor.”

    A Dark Raven I know once asked of me,
    “Dear Romeo who flies so free, do you not already see.”
    “Her Angel is the fire burning inside of thee.”
    “Her mystery is your mystery, whilst she, your Muse,
    The one you sing for, write to amuse.”
    “Beautiful ice-diamond Rosewood Himali.”
    “Elegant and graceful, her beauty harmony.”
    “An Opera of Love, or Romantic Tragedy?”

    From far away a Knight sends best wishes, on the wings of a mercurial dove.
    Don’t be surprised by a tap at the door, it’ll just be feathered Love from above.
    ~
    One quick flurry to scurry your worry!
    One flutter to scatter and scuttle doubt,
    One note written facing fire’s demonic spout.
    Tis perhaps one last note before your Knight is all burnt out

    ~ Rosewood Himali (continued…) ~ By ~ DN ~

    A red flash dashed racing from the flame, a scorching fire, a Phoenix flier,
    Arisen again in a rebirth without pain, flying with renewed desire.
    She tore a path through the smoky night, like a rapier blade shining bright,
    Her flight a fearless fight flapping through heated hate, form one pyre to another,
    And back to a heated state on an island on the verge of quaking, shaking, sinking,
    Flowing away, burning slowly until ashen grey, until all is burning flaming this day,
    Else molten and scorching, melting and pouring, draining and flowing away
    Burning, bubbling, descending never-ending into the very fires of Hell!
    ~*~

    Take care of one and all Himali, Lady of Ice and Diamond.

    Go in Peace, Live in Love.

        Tis nothing more than a pause in the gentle breeze,

        A dote from your Knight warms your chamber floor.

        For my raven-haired Venus in a far distant land,

        Is one day too many when absent from thee.

        In all ways Loving you unconditionally.

        Lifting my heart upon wings of Harmony,

    All around is bound within ferocious fire, my island peppered by her flaming desire!
    Her pyre her passion her wanton pant, her yearning, her burning fearsome rant
    She swirls, twirls pirouettes and curls, pearls pools unfurls and purls, she shimmers her flaring chic,
    Within her scorching mystique I am held spellbound, held upright by twin oaks in firmer ground.
    ~
    “Hold on my Love!” fluttered by angelic Dove, “Hold on to our tender tethering line!”
    “Hold on be strong it won’t be for long, I am here my Knight and all will be fine.”
    When of a sudden on the wings of Love came swooping a Red Tailed Hawk from up above!
    Between tined talons tightly clutching, she held a red egg from a dragon’s clutching.
    ~
    Like a Phoenix she flew, like a bolt from the blue, her ferocious feathered fire!
    An arrow was she racing the fire, her flaming wand her courageous style, as into the flaming pyre she flew,
    Like a rapier blade slicing through, piercing the igniting sulphurous hue, faster and faster into fiery spew,
    She was flashing her dashing of scarlet chic, airborne upon wings with mythic mystic.
    ~
    Beyond the veil she quickly faded away, her form engulfed by flaring flame, her eternal soul burning again,
    And again in never ending cycles of never ending pain,
    In never ending pleasure in a never ending domain.
    Forever her gain to be born over and over again again,
    For death becomes her and she rises again,
    Once more born from the Eternal Flame.
    ~*~

    Know that I am well my Lady that my heart stays honest and true.
    That your quickly warming noble Knight, is slowly stewing for you!
    That as he roasts in the Brazen Bull of a suit of shining armour,
    He holds on to one cherished thought, Lady Himali “mon amor.”

    Shattering scattering splintering the air, her storm of fire ferocious with flare and flourish panache and pace,
    The liquid nature of her flowing grace mesmerised, stole my breath, her translucency, her crimson depth!
    She bubbled simmered spilt burst and blew, reigning her fire upon everything below,
    Her glow a rage flashing red and gold, her movements subtle sudden dynamic and bold,
    She danced raced flew made haste, she paused to scorch smouldering in face, eyes flaring
    She rushed flaming and grasping, her ferocity groaning her passion moaning reaching out for my flesh!
    ~
    Covered smoky grey where I rattled bounced fizzed and hummed, the beat of the fire the roar of her drum,
    Barely upright between branching beams our island of green was all remaining as she pursued her rapacious dream,
    Consuming, her combustion a disruption, a wake of ash and cinder, crisped cooked timber and death,
    Ravaged by the passion of her sparky zest, beguiling bewitching her flamboyance never rests!
    Questing tinder to spark, unsettle and flame, ignite and ignite again and again again and again!
    ~*~

    With heavy heart and gentle sigh,
    I sign off my poem, ‘For my Love,’
    And softly whisper ‘good nigh’

    Tap tap tapping came rap rap rapping,
    Upon your perfumed chamber door,

    Ground heaved with a hiss jettoning mist spewing forth fire and flame
    In a rain of boulder, rock fire and smoulder, pebble-dashed again and again,
    Again and again in a flaming rain of basalt and scorching lava,
    Again and again driving me back away from the crack ever further and further!
    ~
    Came Night rushing in to the blistering fight, her stars ever twinkling her coals ever bright,
    Her darkness fanned the fire’s height, it’s leaping head a towering might,
    Of scarlet burning searing light, my shielded eyes my blinded sight,
    The thunderous roar rattled on some more, deafening the ears of your Knight!
    ~
    In a dash more a rush I raced for cover, towards two tress stood close to each other,
    Towards two oaks both broad and broadly branching, their roots holding firm before hellfire’s approaching,
    Smoking but not aflame, a sanctuary a shelter from the flaming rain still falling again and again,
    With zealous zeal and evil’s will, with venom and violence shock and awe!
    ~
    To the floor I tumbled rolled rose and stumbled between woody boughs and branches
    Bowing low their twiggy ends lost in deep shadow, amidst wispy clouds and shrouds of smoke,
    Temperatures rising timber enticing sparks exciting fires igniting and leaping to smote and smite,
    Consume all in sight within a pyre of pain and smouldering rain as Hell’s fire came again and again!
    ~*~

    For Himali,

    Upon whose floor I leave a small weave of words
    A tale to calm her heart.
    So she will never feel alone will never feel apart,
    No further away from her shining Knight,
    Than one beat of their Loving Heart.

    Sweet dreams Ice Queen.

    Dense with gloom upon a path of doom, we head on for the final ledge.
    We meander we thread we quicken our tread,
    We hasten ever closer to the perilous edge,
    Where this Knight must fledge his feathers of gold.
    ~
    At my side as I stride walks alongside an Angel here for me,
    Her spirit is so pure, her presence reassures, my sweet Angel Himali,
    Become vapour in my eyes, a shadow in my soul,
    Her Love a flowing river, her sweetness makes me whole.
    ~
    High above hangs a canopy of tumulus clouds, it’s mood a brood to alarm
    Disarm, tempt else tease, tis the darkness that comes, evenings vagary,
    Despondent in grey Night’s Lady comes our way trailing ebony in her wake,
    Cinders rustle, husks bustle and the ground begins to shake!
    ~
    Shake and quake land shifted and lifted the pathway dissected suddenly splitting into two,
    Into two into four t’was not long before the cinder floor was no more at all!
    I became unstable on unstable land, unable on land I was unable to stand else turn to seek a swift retreat,
    To return me to a safer beat than this thundering drum, this portentous percussion, this cracking earth breathing sulphur and fire!

    Her touch, her kiss, her tenderness was bliss, my heart surged with flaming fire.
    A burning desire to surrender to her, to be consumed by her spiritual pyre.
    Her ethereal grace led my heart to a place, a garden I yearned to call home,
    In her Loving embrace I quickened my pace for now I was not alone.
    ~
    First step on cinders I could feel the heat, a tingling sensation beneath my feet,
    Temperatures rising from a path of deceit, discarded souls lying obsolete,
    Their husks crisp defiled of conceit, their souls ashen grey fallen in defeat,
    Their ending never ending cycles repeat, souls discarded journeys incomplete.
    ~
    Overhead the sky is no longer blue, deep sapphire dims revealing twilight hue,
    Amassed swirls of grey dance and play, thunderheads gather in the distance far away,
    In liminal light we flicker and sway walking our dark path together this day,
    Between shadow and shade we make our way, onwards towards Love where our hearts will stay.

    Another day passes and your Knight steps ever further away on his path: his poems now delivered by a mercurial dove from above to the floor in front of your door…

    ~ Rosewood Himali (continued…) ~ By ~ DN

    Distance lies between this Knight and his enchanting Lady.
    He hastens for Paradise with eyes glazed and hazy, his heart crazy,
    His mind lately occupied his thoughts preoccupied with an image once seen,
    A raven-haired Queen knelt on the shores of a faraway dream.
    ~
    Tis not for pride I quest and stride for my Lady Himali,
    But for her Love and her Honour and her captivating Beauty.
    My duty as her Knight is to defend her radiant Light,
    To stand by her side, proud to fight the last good fight, for her.
    ~*~
    Beneath my feet soft sand became boulder,
    Whilst I striding onwards grew bolder and bolder,
    Knowing each step my Lady was at my shoulder,
    Her rosewood smoulder the Polar of my Love.
    ~
    Upon the crest of a rise I walked a blackened track,
    A path one might fear but there was no turning back.
    Embers and cinders coal ash and coke mingled with dust and lingering smoke!
    My path ahead filled me with dread, it appeared anything other than holy,
    Yet I did not break stride for standing by side was my Lady Himali!
    ~
    Said she, “I am not Himali of the Ice, for your Lady waits on the tide,”
    “I am her spirit freely walking, her Angel freely talking, I am here as your loving guide.”
    “My heart would not permit you to travel all alone: for your journey will long,
    I could not stay away my love for my heart is the heart of your song
    ~
    “We shall journey onwards together my love but I cannot lend a hand,
    My place is still within the spirit world, I belong within another land.”
    “But I am here my love to walk with you until the last perilous ledge,
    And there upon it is only you who will step across the edge.”

    Your questing Knight misses you from afar: his radiantly bright Himali Star πŸ™‚

    Without hesitation or delaying for one moment more,
    I turned from my Lady and strode out for the shore.
    Dawn’s fiery burst had dispersed colourful verse,
    Her sky blazed a deep azure blue,
    As I left the small boat to float on the tide
    All I could think about was you.
    As I stepped quickly upon sand away from the sea,
    All I could think about was you Himali.

    To her lips she pressed her fingertip to silence my last reply,
    And blew a kiss to cast me adrift at the end of my handling line.
    “Fly swiftly dear dark Dewin,” she softly whispered unto me,
    “Fly swiftly to an aerie in her eerie: to her go, fly quickly!”
    “Fly swiftly my dear darkly Dove and you will make good time, and
    When golden with feathers, an Eagle you’ll return,

    Restless again, I reached for the keyboard ahead of tomorrow’s sunrise to write a few lines: a continuation of the last poem…

    A copper dawn flares her precious flame upon the far horizon line
    It is time.
    Time for this Knight to turn and step courageously away,
    Step boldly forwards on another new way,
    Honourably questing with a Knight’s chivalrous sway,
    With a plan to pass into Paradise and return for you this day.

    I turn from the Sun my sight singularly spotted dotted gold centred and I
    besotted with your eyes blazing unfathomable jet,
    “Not yet,” they whisper softly, “but soon my love, when I will be here for thee.”
    “Always awaiting your safe return from Fires of Mystery.”
    “With our bridge in tow gloriously built bringing you to me.”

    To the keeper of the gate guarding the grinding griddle judging my worth in a fit of giggles!

    Good morning πŸ™‚ How are you today? You haven’t posted for a couple of days…I trust all is well? πŸ™‚ I was restless and found peace in writing you a poem.

    I am bound by a binding of thin Luna silk
    Bound for adventure through an open door.
    It leads to a place I have never stepped foot,
    A virgin isle I’ve never seen before.
    ~
    Of one of two isles, this is the larger,
    the other a beautiful sandy shore.
    To that isle I once visited long ago,
    And yearn to return to once more
    ~
    As I leave The Venus for the shore of my isle
    I am tied by the tether of your silk smile.
    Weighed by a stone upon whose mountain I roam,
    Upon dimpled pathways for mile after mile.
    ~
    Himali of the Ice, play out your thread.
    Have it comfort me in my time of dread.
    Have it leave a pathway to return to thee,
    So you may know my true humility.

    Have a wonderful day. Brightest Blessings best wishes sweet dreams.

    A time for promises of Love and of Love never-ending in the soft tint of autumn’s shade.

    Far away never distant one fire burns effervescent in the impassioned heart of a Rosewood Rose.
    From my flight high above in the language of Love comes a message for the ruby red rose in prose
    Shortened to a poem
    Reduced to a line
    Paused in a breath to whisper three words in the ear of one who shows, one who knows
    How far away her goodness goes when her tender Goddess flows.

  25. Hey Himali,

    I was taking a stroll along a windswept beach when upon a sudden wave
    An item carried from far away gave a little waive.
    Hastened to curiosity and eager to know much more,
    I quickened my pace across the shimmering shore.
    ~
    With pushing press and urgentness I knelt upon the floor,
    And gently lifted the magical thing excited to know much more.
    The mysterious gift I lovingly cleansed and held it my hand
    For a gift it was for me to find lying on the sand.
    ~
    This gift of treasure brought such pleasure to me.
    A token of Love bestowed by the sea,
    A gesture of friendship ingrained with magnanimity,
    A small waive from afar from the omnipotent Thee.

        Aww πŸ™‚ Humbled, charmed, grateful, enchanted, and touched, I am at once an entanglement of many emotions with each blushing my flashing smile ever wider. Thank you dear Himali.

        I must confess it wasn’t until I found your Blog that I knew what ‘spellbound’ was: up until then it was all merely pot luck and trance πŸ™‚ Friendship has its own magic when given from the heart – ‘you bring light and beauty to the mundane’ – whilst you bring Light and Beauty. Thank you.

        Rosewood’s dark ruby red hue seems an appropriate colour for the spicy scent that lingers in the air above the shore. Your sense of personal presence within the poem brings the sense of scent alive for me. In my mind I see you standing on the seashore and I, I am simply lost for words πŸ™‚

    Tis her fire her flare her raven dark hair, her ice her paradise with Himalayan spice,
    For this one rose who grows flowering amongst diamond white ice, for her,
