He Gives Wings To Me

   those dark eyes give wings to me...
       passion flies within

My Little Bulldog

No challenge stops her
    stance is set
       shoulders squared

                                  She needs no reassurance
                                  no protective arm

What she wants
    is what she wills
     she harbors no illusions

                                   No man will tell her
                                   what to do

She has lain out
   her own way
     and swept it clean

                                   No distraction is allowed
                                   to interfere

Her goals are set
   and bannered, waiting
     for distant days

                                     She will claim them all
                                     in triumph, never doubting

Small of stature
   great of heart
     she turns to face the wind

                                      Gentle as a running stream
                                      Unyielding as a diamond

She acknowledges 
   the difficulties
    then passes through

                                        No lie accepted
                                        no truth denied

She scans the road ahead
   weighs its options
     gaze sure and steady

                                         Fears are felt
                                         then disregarded

She does not move back
   she sets her grip upon
     each thing she wants

                                          Her goals must surrender
                                          to her determination

A child in years
   an elder's wisdom
     sits upon her brow

                                          Discouragements will bring no change
                                          a mountain of resolve

Seasons change
   worlds revolve
     she sees it through

                                          The end in sight
                                          stays in sight

Such nobilities
   within my child
     humble me

                                          Her father frets for her
                                          but can never fear

This is my little bulldog
   holding the world 
     by its pantleg

                                            Naught that she needs escapes her
                                            what kind of fool would try

high school love

we offered our hearts
       eagerly sketched in wet sand....
             entwined initials
whispered in the wind
        promises too young to keep…
            first kiss at sunset
a chill from the sea…
        such fragile love would vanish 
            in a wave of tears

sweet love song

love is fresh and new
   but grows strong like an oak tree
      sweet shade in the sun

   hearts and souls given freely
       thoughts that live as one

kisses like nectar
   skin to skin and arm in arm
      song sung endlessly

Not Broken

Thrown onto the floor..
Maybe cracked but not broken..
Two hands picked it up..

Caressing with care..
Finally mending old scars..
Holding it close with warmth..

A heart now finds love..
Then she handed me her own..
Two hearts become one..

Innocence lost, does not out weigh ignorance cost.

Peace in my embrace

I am busy now
but will come back in your mind....
sleepless nights await

wherever you go
I will sneak into your thoughts....
keep the pills ready

pills may bring you sleep
but can they give you the peace?....
peace in my embrace

Love's an Illusion

I’ve realized that
love is an illusion, one
that’s out of my reach

I’d hoped that if I
refused to seek it, it would
come to me softly

on butterflies’ wings
fluttering in the spring breeze
…so sweet and simple

Distill emotion
to one cliché “I love you”
call it poetry

Wrap all your feelings
in colorful box, ribbons,
call it greatest gift

Inflated ego
sworn superiority
call it all I need

I hear no trace of
regret in the voice speaking
of indiscretions

I see no sign of
truth in the dark eyes that claim
to love me only

I feel not the touch
of kindness from hands that give
only when they need

Hit-and-run kisses
when all I need is for you
to linger a while

Beware the high ground
only time until the fall

Singular captures
only the essence of one
and that one is you

I lost myself there
sometimes I think you love me
for bending to you

So say it’s untrue
though every verb indicates
quite the contrary

I can not believe
manipulated words when
you’re hiding your eyes

Redeem, for this heart
that fell blissful into you
is reaching out still

Last month now seems the
distance of long ago, when
hope stood in doorways

Your walls familiar,
yet strangely distant for the
backdrop of a year,

a year I think I’d
rather let fade into the
folds of memory…

Never needed you,
but only what I thought you
could have provided – 

excitement, promise,
without a thought to the fact
that I was empty

and you could never
fill those places that simply
longed for her within…

I sought you, I found
miles of nothing underneath
laughter’s skeleton

and I cried for us,
not because we were ever
anything, but for

all that we once thought
we could have gained, and all that
in this, we have lost.

Caress softly across my cheek
Goosebumps all over

Bleeding FOR Life

The ground was so soaked
Where His blood ran down the cross.
Dead but giving life!

The tree He was on,
God let grow for His Own Son
To die on, yet live!

The tomb on the hill
was just borrowed for week end.
Stone was rolled away.

On that third morning
A bright light glowed from within.
Jesus had risen.

Women came to see.
Death where is thy victory?
Grave where is thy sting?

A Spring to Summer Romance

he was not my type
but by the time it was spring
i wore that man's ring

once he wore me down
i flowered in the garden
of his sweet attentiveness
but began to droop
in the absence of his care. . . . 
July’s drought was hard to bear

that ring he gave me -
cheap like his lackluster love -
broke in mid-august

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

where one's every thought
touches dreams
where one’s every dream
caresses reality
hope becomes shared

complexities proof

two become one

is it in his kiss?

When away from her sweet arms
Needing love's blanket


Touched with hands of fire
Burning passion deep within
Sensation she brings

Endless Love

I desired water
To replace the thirst of sand
And found a lake

A drink forever
Where man shall not thirst again
Nor bee, nor flower

Her wine a rare treat
Of lips, breasts, and tongue distilled
Fountain of desire

When books fell apart
The wind howled the barren heart
Shuddering breasts stay

More then memory
Of entwined hands, and long lane
Of shadows laughing

A new born child cries
Loudly to belong. Time webs
Truth in silky hands.

Love measure me out
In spoonful of pain, I know
Endless worth to tell

My love endless waits
By lime tree and fragrant gate
Kissing moon goodbye.

a stirring awakens me
dawns light embraces

she sighs in writhing motion

in sync with joyous caress
groans of delight soar

voicing emanates
breathing enhances heaving
excited to pert

loving shadows dance
captured by the morning sun
she is imminent

release impending
rejoice is met with sighing

My First Love at First Sight

Her eyes captured
Angels flew by
Persuading my soul

Almond shaped
Delicately demure
My heart gasped

Seductively lost
Breaching my spirit
She fulfilled my passion.

Four Pieces

Carnival is here.
Crowds jam the street with laughter.
He plays solitaire

High above the street
A lonely window shines bright.
Love is sold tonight.

Sits by the window
In a smoky, crowded bar.
Life passes him by

Crumpled note on floor
Tells the story of love gone.
Time now for dying.

One in three

Offspring of the rib
Soft enticement of the flesh ---
Woman beauty draped

Mother rebelling
Children to sag on the breast
Eve pining at God

Mother submitting
Heaven's pleasure in the skin
Mary, bringing the Christ

Magdalene, my thirst
For caress of oil and love
Open core of milk

Summon Anat too
With Aphrodite, Venus kiss
And the open pea

All one in love's three
The triumvirate of praise
The edge of prayer

Goddesses are whores
And whores as goddess reigns still
Love sells men cheap to dreams

Samson, not I,
Menelaus too, heart blind
Left me stupefied

And yet I am sure
Any woman's love is better
Than no love at all

Mother's are virgins
In son's eyes, wives are his shrines
And whores are his peace

Where sin mars desire
And the moon sets blood on fire
For breast and children.

When You Forget Who I am,

I Shall love You still,
When You start losing Your Mind

Till I Remember Your Name,
Promise You! I will.

how the hummingbird
loves the flower
the way you love me

This small haiku was dedicated to my son Rob Poulin and his family for their love, and my son's collecting some of my poems and creating a little-bigly book titled: THE LAST LEAF DECIDES. I am on his board of directors and Executive Vice President of his little publishing company: COLT PRESS which is publishing my poems. I asked that this haiku be included as a dedication to them, but I think it too late for inclusion. If we could all love the way a hummingbird loves the flower's nectar, love would be so sweet.

Measures of Faith

Freedom in infinite latitude of grace
Answering questions life cannot face
Inspiring a victor's heart in salvation's race
Templed in the love of Christ, the joy to taste
Heaven as bread, and earn it as place.
Measure to me all
The landscape of broken will
Indwell finite space

To endure the night
In raptures claiming presence
Of eternal day

Passing through darkness
With soul untainted, flawed light
Imaging glory

I hold with hands firm
Beyond the brim of eyes span
The great coming, here!

I behold in grime
Figures of hate, bruised and bare
Loving enemies

Earth is illusion
The kingdom is veiled by love
Absent from the heart

O Master, bless me
When night has no moon or stars
To walk in this light

To soar above fear
Treat a pauper like a prince
And sing to the cross

What I see transforms
Daylight is a prayer new
Night a song of praise

It is a gift rare
For opened hearts, and bowed wills
And love of the king.

In pain there is joy
If love's purpose tells sweet gain
So still I remain.

A question of love

Should I work---
to buy bread---
or for love?

    Should I eat---

    or to love?

        Am I me---
        ‘cos I live---
        or I love?

Two Sisters, One man

Two sisters, one man-
Well-tricked for his trickery,
Jacob gained two wives.

Two sisters, one man-
One weak-eyed and unwanted;
One was beautiful.

Two sisters, one man-
In love he wept for Rachel,
For sons loved Leah.

Two sisters, one man-
Mandrakes, sex bartered in hopes
Both would feel equal.

no more schemes you can devise
