You are My Soul Mate

a glance and a smile

    anywhere or anytime

        and I feel your love

you laugh, my heart sings

     you smile and my heart flutters

I look in your eyes

    and see the love reflected

Lonely Heart

1.Voices whispering        2.  Silent bells ringing          3.  Excruciating
  Heavenly secrets to me    Vibrating a broken Heart :   Heartache of pain and sorrow 
    Only in my head                A dark Heart in Hell              Echos in my ears

4.Loneliness, darkness    5. Tears live Forever           6. Bitter salt of tears
  A shawl covering a Heart   In a Whirlpool in my Heart  Cascades on coffins of death
  That beats in desolation       Eroding my Love                 As a broken Heart dies

7.Silence; Listening             8. Madness in my brain    9. The bleeding heart flows 
Absorbing morbid moments  Enables a Broken Heart   Down the calm current of death
Devourers the Soul               For self destruction              Feeding blood to Hell

10 A lost soul travels     11
   The fiery path of Hell 
     Forever: Alone 
                              To be Continued

Machine Artistry

My trade is printing
commercial web-press printing
Printing is an art

A difficult art
It takes an age of learning
to master this form

Printers are painters
yet we do not use brushes
We paint with machines

And do not use paint
but ink to produce precise
graphic images

We follow Franklin
who wrote a poem for us
(His proud Epitaph)

I refer here to older web printing presses which I used to operate. Of course, today's presses are completely automated. Most of today's press operators would be clueless on the ones I ran. Today, printing is not an art, but a lost art...

Ice King

 Ice that will freeze the heart
shaking icy mountains
roaring like a lion does
thunder echoes around
with ice in hands body turns to stiff
heart faints weaker
Tears fall of cold imprinted on face
beneath his mask lips of lavender 
face as white as a ghost
Fatigue of a warrior 
ice blades that cut razor sharp
heart turned to blue
from harsh torture of his endless soul
among the most powerful 
the king of winters
with ice of bone he conquers all


Brian Otoole .......

I am the ice king.
My heart and soul are chilled, fuzed
Into an ice spear.

The cold can't touch me.
I have forgotten the warmth
Of the human touch.

I am alone, lost.
Yet I search for my purpose
By waging a war.

Side Note: 
Fresh ice cubes can bite
When held tight in bare hands.
But the cold felt good.

Short Changed

Bonds are breaking cold
Upon the heart is all wealth
Nothing left but self

Secure in our fear
Violence has no heart left
Progress stumbles here

None depend again
Has love depended before
I have only me

The school of want gone
What can I learn without love
But hunger again

Guns without ears laugh
Machines without heart embraced
Victims of progress

Light of My Eyes

O Light of My Eyes
Be the sunrise of my day
And sunset at night.

Never forsake me
Or leave me in pitch darkness
For you guide my way.

I would walk blindly in fear.
By your light I run.

O Light of My Eyes
Without you I would not live,
But you complete me.

Remember that house?
Stairs, attics, grand pianos
Rather Escherish*

Day awaits conformity
Until next time, dreams.


Written by Nancy Jones and her metronome at naptime on August 21.

* I count "Escherish" as three syllables.  Escher, btw, is an artist.  You can see one of his works if you click on "about this poem."  You can see many of his works if you google him.

oh man, the AM in the first line perhaps would read better as ... dunno... but it means the time between midnight and noon.

Love hurts

His heart has been destroyed. Struggles to find inner peace, His heart has felt pain.
Loves rough on a soul, Uncertain with why love ends, left standing alone.
Can he find the strength? To repair the brokenness, That leaves him hurting inside.

Egg Story

Emergent of life
God's glory protein, souped gold
Gave excess of joy

Example, me, exults
Gratitude of existence
Grasping given grace

Earth's replete to tell
Golden centered origin
Grand umbilical

Excite me to love
Garnish blessings with pure praise
Good eggs make true saints.

Colors are the most loving,
When they are quite bright.

invisible lines on cheeks
An artist, indeed.
