(Dedicated to Folake)
Your eyes, woman
are like twilight rainbow
amorously bearing aloft passions of mine
toward androcytic ecstacy.
They tell of endless lights.
Night skies clarion the warmth of you
keep me balled-up till
i am tilted to your adorned essence.
May I call up words to adore you,
agglomerate them into a panoply of worshippers
unsandalled before you
like Moses at the burning bush.
And now you seem to fall asleep
but you tell me it's the heavy night
bidding toward a sunny dawn
wherein our love is lighted.
Slowly I let you fall asleep
impatient with the long night
waiting to gaze once more
into the eyes of my lovely love.
Then a lip is placed on yours
and you rouse up wide-eyed
smiling at my romantic move.
We enjoyed the night, cruising on.
M iracle baby boy
I' m being called
R elief for my parents
A s I am growing and doing fine
C loser to entering the world
L ove is flowing like water
E verywhere in our home right now
B ut I am ready to leave this small space
A nd be held by my mommy and daddy
B y and by I will feel hugs and kisses
Y et another miracle I am from God above

Entry for P.D.'s A Poem You Wrote This Week Contest
Am I the only one who's feeling there is something very wrong with all of this ,
I can't seem to get anybody to listen not even when I raise my fist.
How can they not see what I see ,has everybody lost thier mind I say,
Why can't they see what it is that is making them act this way.
Have you taken a look around to see there's something that has changed,
When you look into peoples eyes Lord how you can see the rage.
No compassion for thier fellow man as if they have never ever cared,
For the future of mankind and how we all should be aware.
Saw a friend of mine the other day he was acting a little strange ,
I can't help but wonder just when , how , and who's the blame.
This power and greed is consuming us all we just can't seem to stop
Stepping on our brothers & sisters as we race to the top.
Where's the love ,the kindness ,the hope and faith we use to live by,
How we allowed ourselves to sink so low I' will never know why.
Still I will contunue to spread the word which has always been,
Be good and love one another as you are learning not to sin.
Please don't be another wreck that has been pushed to the side ,
If you' listen to the one and only word you will know why.
We will all band together so we can stand tall and free,
It is one simple word and that is love how could you nor see.

Yield to the feel, yield to the voice;
Open your heart, open your mind;
Urge prompts bold will, urge brings fine choice;
Reach out and start, reach out and find.
Vital words spring, vital rhymes come;
Offer to share, offer to speak;
Indulge fond fling, indulge sweet psalm;
Charm owns clear wares, charm loads sure peaks;
Echo and sing, echo and sum.
Measure clear thought, measure fond feel;
Ask for wise say, ask for warm pay;
Trust strings a plot, trust twirls a deal;
Truth dazzles day, truth sparkles stay;
Embrace verse lot, embrace wild will;
Reap motive play, reap happy way;
Sense something hot, sense pleasure fill.
Prize each word well, prize each verse play;
Opt to write tale, opt to cast rhymes;
Effort can tell, effort can sway;
Touch crafts word sale, touch churns verse chimes.

Wonder of wonders if God would grant one miracle to me.
Over hills and dales, here and across the seas…amid:
Racists, radicals, and warriors who rant worldwide,
Ladies and Gentlemen: laughing loudly, in disbelief.
Desire of my heart is the miracle of understanding.
People, who understand, increase peace in their hearts
Eternally gained wisdom that unchains love’s doors.
As the miracle of miracles becomes reality,
Complete eradication of angry deeds…understanding—
Ending all wars
Inhaling The Sea
I found her walking the sandy shoreline
N othing on , naked and she was so fine
H eaven must have dropped this angel down
A s I felt the sea wrap us in a soft gown
L ove seared us together, never to ever part
I heard this vision whisper into my heart
N ever my love , never send my love away
G iving in to the sweetest taste of her play
T he sea sent aroma of its love flavor to me
H er smiles soon brought out this sweet plea
E chantress please stay and marry this man
S he agreed if we both became loving sea fans
E ach morn walking there to face the rising sun
A vow to walk very slowly, enjoy life, never run
Here as I sit with pen and ink,
Hurl form and wit as thought now links.
I feel a strain of pulse that hurls,
I claim from pain a touch that twirls.
See sensuous stay that feeds each surge,
Sense new wordplay fling feel and urge.
Ideas spring forth to fashion form,
Image goes north to find bold norms.
Mind over matter is state of heart,
More than chatter the muse now starts.
Ply over poise true verse from noise,
Please make a choice to fund your voice.
Live in the light and love your stay,
Love streams sure flight through night and day.
Yield to your soul and heart and mind,
Yes sense a whole that now aligns.
Come out and play and dance and sing,
Cheer frames your say with joy you bring.
Opt for fond moods to sow and reap,
Open to good that moves grand heaps.
Meet all you meet with easy smile,
Mind how you greet your shadow style!
Enter the gate where truth unfolds,
Embrace the plate with peace laid bold.

Gentle you were, in your smile
Involuntarily shaking limbs, until your
Tiny frame, into my hands, it slipped
Amusing me with gorgeous amusements
Negating in me those moments of meaninglessness
Joyfully, with tiny fingers
Affecting more life into my faltering being
Like the season of spring
Invigorating the shuddering mother earth
Vanished with your birth were
Ills that crippled us for fourteen years
Causing us to sing those songs
That makes God leap and dance!
Overwhelmed by a sudden birth, and
Remembering Tagore, we named you Gitanjali
