The Twilight of Memory

Since I did not glance
at the passing of my time
mirror on the wall
I witness a fading frame,
all I’ve left is this inside.

FLIPPING MEMORIES



watching gray clouds drift old lady on bench sips rose tea as winter air heaves… thumbs browse ripped album pages flipping memories of youth

Tasting Bliss

Outside your window
I waited as in a dream.
There beneath your sill
whilst in my most int'mate thoughts...
Again we were tasting bliss.

Whisper

Stirring my coffee
Staring right in front of me
Thoughts flies like echoes
Reverberating the past
Silence whispered... I'm alive.

On the edge of a dream

Sunlight on the sea
A beautiful reflection
Here I stand alone 
Thinking about yesterday
And remembering her love

Abandoned


Rusting old screen door Gateway to a once loved home Banging in the wind Echoing children's voices As they came and went each day
For the Tanka contest....

Sweet Raspberry Kisses


Baby, when you’re grown
cradling your own darling babe.
Remember your days
of sweet raspberry kisses,
rhymes and twinkling lullabies.

I will remember
the sweet sound of your babble
through bubbling laughter, 
your pudgy, little fingers  
and wide-eyed wonder, always.


for Andrea Dietrich's SWEET or SALTY? Contest,

on the radio

on the radio; 
are songs,     my love, not words 
to bridge     this rift
you are     exorcising 
memories     of love, but why?

My Huckle Berry Heaven 2K13

Many of time have
I sat upon earthy ground,
amongst Huckle Berry patches
gorging in Huckle Berry heaven
with glutton lips painted purple.

Fishing in Black Sea

Fishing in Black Sea
We found the old emeralds
The tears of lovers
In hope to cover the Earth:
Adorno`s  imperative
