I love You more Than I love you

Background Information




The poem that did it for me!!


My Secret Wounds

I Quote:

Dear Tinka,

I’m sorry you’ll be unable to join us at the upcoming

International Society of Poets’ Annual Convention and

Symposium to be held at the legendary Riviera Hotel and

Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, July 20 – 23, 2006.

However, because we don’t want you to miss out on

this amazing opportunity altogether, we have arranged

a way for you and your poetic accomplishments to be

part of this event in a most important way, without

you actually being present.  Although you’ll be unable

to participate in the convention contest (you must be

able to recite your poetry in front of the contest judges

to win), you can still receive your

Outstanding Achievement in Poetry Award

(a custom engraved

13-inch tall crystal statuette), and your bronze

Commemorative Award Medallion.  We will also include

one full year of membership into the International Society

 of Poets for 2006 and a subscription to its magazine,

 Poetry TodayAll you have to do is allow us to present

one of your poems at this year’s convention in your place.

Tinka Boukes, Your Poem Can Still Be Read at the Largest

Gathering of Poets in History"

And so it did happen and this is the living proof of my most

joyest moment since my first poem was published

Beneath My Chest
by Tinka Boukes
Wednesday, October 27, 2004


Music”I will always love you”..


"Beneath My Chest”


When beneath my chest you came to rest

This heart deep within did fail me

I drop my head in shame

And lay my hand upon my chest

To cover up the hurt inside

Cause something deep inside did break

Leaving me with a deep stabbing ache

With a drowsy pain within my heart

Knowing without measure I lost a treasure

Tears tumbling down my face

Splashing to a stop in the sand

Beneath my chest you came to rest

My heart imprisoned by love

But this heart deep within did fail me

As I drop my head in shame

I lay both my hands upon my head

Looking up to the sky

Forgiveness I beg for

Tears tumbling down my face

Splashing to stop in the sand

As I still walk my beach alone

Standing tall in pain

Beneath the deep blue sky

All I can do right now is cry

And drop my head in shame

Knowing I love You...

Who came to rest beneath my chest

Tinka wanted some more funny.

When I do a sketch I do them in a hurry,

because I have too much dang stuff to do.

I like taking more time on a sketch, but.....


Miss, do You have the Time?

by Ron (sketchman) Axelson
Friday, May 30, 2003

Excuse me Miss, do you have the time

Look bud, don’t give me that line

All you men are alike, it should be a crime

You know miss, you’re certainly unkind

All I wanted was the time

Your not kidding me, you just want to
get in my clothes and dine

By the way miss, you do look fine

See, there you go you man slime
your just another horny toad,
and I wouldn’t give you a dime

Please miss, don’t call me names
you’re going to make me whine

Will you just please go away you little perv
you really have got some nerve

Miss, you really are absurd
I’m a billionaire if you haven’t heard

Sir, my phone number is 667-9929
and I live at the corner of Dunlap and 3rd.

Dream Flash: By Dale


dream flash

wake up

make it last

over and over

toss and turn

fall asleep

midnight tolls

lovers burn


dream dash

fall asleep

wake up

make it fast

over and over

toss and turn

lovers churn


dream magic

stirs up cosmic dust

stars sprinkle

lovers hearts

beat and beat


dream moon

rising passion sun

embrace & hold tight

kiss slumber

fall asleep lovers


dream shapes

fall into slumber

lovers embrace love

make it last

dream flash

The Flame Of Hope

“Looking Back”

I looked back today
To all the pathways I walked in my life
I could see all the winding roads and turn-offs
All the highways and cry-ways
Even by-ways
And I know the footprints of my life
Was planned long before I took my first breath
And every step tells a story
As I see every cross road clearly now
But through all this
You stood by my side
And when ever I was lost and lonely
You came to my rescue
Because you knew I was only human
And without me even knowing
You kept an eye on me
And kept me in your heart
You held guard over me

And kept my dreams alive
Dear friend
I feel it in my heart
You are always there
To pick me up when I am down
And you always leave me with a smile
How can I ever thank you
For being the good friend you are
We are connected in spirit
You are so precious to me
And I want to say this
“I love You”
With all my heart
Dear Heart

(My first poem)


by Tinka Boukes

Thursday, November 14, 2002


I walk my beach alone
I walk tall in pain
Holding my head up high
No good to even try
Only you could stop my cry
What is the use of abuse
When your man runs out on boose
And you get bruised
that's no excuse
I refuse to give...yes
I refuse to give
That's what I call been abused
I walk my beach well
Pick up some shell
Looking for some answer
But a heavy swell
what a disaster
Knocks me over
And I cry out of laughter
But now I walk my beach with you
My feet in your feet
My eyes is your eyes
And all I need is my Ocean
My Shell, my Soulmate
My eyes in your eyes
With love abuse instead
That's all I need
That's all I need

Daughter of Zeus “Romance”

by Amor Sabor

Thursday, April 24, 2003

Daughter of Zeus rides the eloquent dawn
on midnight stallions to an apocalyptic moon
relaying without hesitation all of her desires
with her long hair flowing in constellations
as Venus watches inspired in the distance
with her mouth agape and eyes wide open

She returns with dawn in synchronous time
to wash the sleeping valleys with a red kiss
and to spread the scent of jasmine in the air
married with the fresh salt of a pacific storm
with colors of songs and aromas of smiles
to coax soft memories from their rigid perch

She opens her arms and embraces the world
teaching all of the exotic birds the art of flight
while waiting for the white gardenias to bloom
in the innocent splendor of untouched virgins,
and in anticipation of pink roses and carnations
for the early spring to wear as badges of honor

The daughter of Zeus caresses the morning
as she brings with her the secrets of heaven
whispered from the lips of sensuous angels
tucked beneath the satin of her folded wings
and disperses them in the breeze for lovers
in the form of a rainbow in a golden sunrise

She reclines next to me in remarkable dreams
while in the beauteous nudity of eloquent youth
while my eyes drink the nectar of her essence
She weaves her magical spells of enchantment
and without even flinching an eye as I kiss her
or whenever I adoringly paint her with my body

When she leaves she takes with her the horizon
and uncurls it turning it inside out like the sun
and I pronounce it as a star for her evenings
to shine warmly upon us as we melt into one
exchanging cells in an unforgettable embrace
and transferring our energies in a tireless ritual

I worship her while becoming the rings of Saturn
to revolve around her every minute of the day
like separate entities in an endless universe
swept away in Magellanic clouds of ecstasy
accompanied by the symphony of bright stars
and a chorus of angelic voices in the crescendo

The daughter of Zeus has already claimed me
and I, in turn, submit to her deep, fond wishes
and without my asking for anything in return
except for the chance to perpetuate her love
as I track her with beating heart and keen eye
to always be there the moment she awakens

© 2003 Amor Sabor

This poem is dedicated to Tinka Boukes as she has been

so patient as I finally take time to post. My appreciation

to you Tinka...for your kind and generous support of

my work.

Sister Of The Gods - Double Acrostic - Tinka Boukes - 3/19/2004 12:28:09 PM
by Andre Bendavi Ben-YEHU


"Sister Of the Gods"

Graceful, lovely... Happy maker of letters,
Cheetah of the grAsland of grace and wonders...
She runs through the Prairies preventing blunders;
Treasure, she is Poet to make life better!

Ink and scent of Youth, her plume is no bettor;
Notion comes free, Beauty is never sunder...
Kindness flows on In the lake of love, under
Auspice that stands pReserving without fetter...

Butterflies dance Through the clouds of the sky
Overseeing Her smiling face with bliss...
Umbowed, standing prouD, this Poet I kiss!

Kindred soul of Angels, keeping life high,
Enthused presence,Yearly giving her heart...
Sister of the gods that humans impart!


"The Full Power of Love"

As I seek love in the silence of nature
I feel passion, in the quiet moments of night
For solitude allows the heart to speak
Isolation invites the heart to sing
Love remains the only power of the heart.
It can change . . . the disposition of the heart.
That secret beauty of love does not lie
Within the beauty nor colors of a butterfly
But within the silence of the cocoon
From whence it comes.
Yes it lies . . .
Within the quietest yearning of the breast
And the full power of love
That lies untouched
Deep within the whispers of the heart
It awakens and unfolds time and time again
Like the seas approach and return
Time and time again, time and again.
Does love remain . . .
The only power of the heart?

Of True Might And Tall - for Tinka
Albert Swanson

Tuesday, September 21, 2004


The skies shall

allow, their water's to be
down long spickets of dread
to describe
the tangible moments with you
When your heart lay barren
among rock,
lying stone,
and the soothing pebble

The water knew
It rolled
quite, evenly
to wash your heart
in the waving airs;
with an ameliorated conscience
never found
but offered

as stunning gold;
as a spotted sun
your head

The coda simple
that the membranes pains
and hurting lacerations
whenever meant to

truly serve you;
in the blue
of the high
fainted sky

where the wishes stored
tight, vaulted
and whims, alas are
sorted; glass for
time; the fall

and the sleek murmurs
of he wistful heart
far space,
where the angels
in might
and tall

To capture
the cruelties
of us

In time



 The Howling Wind
by Gary Scott Gebert
Saturday, February 07, 2004

More song lyrics from long ago...


When the western wind blows away,

and the teardrops…

and the teardrops misty spray on your face.


The harder we try to rhyme,

and the heartbeats…

and the heartbeats are all out of time.


How can we tell the storm is real?

When the warm sunshine…

when the warm sunshine you never can feel.


In the howling wind


Diamonds that glow in the night,


somehow, you know it will be alright.


The harder we try to rhyme,

and the heartbeats…

the heartbeats are all out of time.


Diamonds that glow in the night,


somehow, when you don’t need the light.

In the howling wind

To Tinka
G E Morrison

Monday, July 11, 2005

Another very special poet that embraces us all in love


and word.


Tinka doesn't mind poetically expressing her feelings.


She does this

in a super entertaining manner, using music,


humor and the works.


Throws it right out at us all with no shame


in her game...



I know why,
in your poetry,
you laugh and cry.
We all feel your pain,
through your fantastic
poeming we all gain.
Your friendship has no measure,
to all of us it's a loving treasure.


Tinka always there,
shining bright star
in our poetic hemisphere.
Twinka will take us way out,
to only return us through
her loving poetic route.
When all is said and done,
Twinka sure is great fun.


We all have walked her beach,
in words she's brought it to our reach.
We all have shared her loving heart,
which surely is her greatest part.
Out of all our poetic crew,
Tinka shines brightest in review.
Always there in highlight,
Twinkling star shining super bright.

A tribute to one of our finest, a lady, I'm proud to call my friend: Tinka Boukes.

Our Tinkerbelle, she's oh, so swell, her writes the truth proclaim,

Her writes are true and full of life, her thoughts are so profound. 
There's people that ya meet , that touch your very soul
