God's Messenger

                                      Will always treasure
                             White silken plumes gentles touch
                                      Take upon oneself
                               Day by day lifeblood’s beacon 
                                  Doves ministering spirit

Cancer is a disease that attacks the body and all it's parts, cancer can tear your family apart.  Cancer is a disease that few understand, cancer can quickly get out of hand.  Cancer can do as it will, cancer is hard too heal, cancer can ever kill.  Only Christ can give you the strength too live.

Darkest poorest land
Where power and pride blinds men
sickness dwells and steal
Where is that candle that lights?
A star to spring crumb of life...

Ode to Ellen

You’re my symphony
the blood that runs through my veins,
ageless and timeless
like the metamorphic Rose
you came to dwell in my life!

Flame Theatre

Dancing candle flames, the nights flickering shadows, whirl about and play. They dance me to sleep at night and sleep their sleep, in the day.

take one drop of rain
multiply it; speculate,
all that emotion
a little that gives so much,
if only that it was love.

Light upon the Path

Sealed in walls of ice
My heart locked; frozen frail,
Ragged shardsduk-taped
After a swift fall from grace
Grim view of my shackled fate

Opening my mind
In order to see clearly
Amending time lost
Moving forward yet refrained
Seeking a promising path

Lily's, daisies, rose's,
Stoping to sniff as they bloom
Staring at the stars
Burning like a tigers eyes
Meek child I am no longer

Reach for heaven
To chase inner most desires
Stroking fire within
Aspiring to heights untold
Letting inner light shine o

(I connected this to "the great flower of life" in a perspective of personal growth from a troubled child to a positive and driven young adult inspired toward achieving greater things)

tanka revolution

Working class people 
Do not trust socialist intellectuals
Don´t get lured by them 
They are upper middle class people 
Who want to run your revolution.

The Shine

The sun shines once more
In the midst of this downpour
Thought I was getting used to
Be forayed in this crusade
Till that warmth touches my soul
