Seek Life after life
Illusive task to obtain
Beyond doubts and fall

Start and end  dramas 
Decipher complexities
Found partial answers 

Paradigm issues
Confusion overate quest
Esteem falters wit

Stand mindful actions
Stuck within clearer pathways
A stretch still needed

Persistent conscience
Always craved  enlightenment
Recall life purpose.

Public Enemy -Over the Top-

******((Army of love))******

beautiful mattress
hot and riled explosive gift
nature at her best

***((Gone with the wind))***

the music
listen to the moaning wind
biting to the pain

******((Over & Over))******

the rainbow
fingertips touch a few drops
kiss of dew

*****((Midnight Cowgirl))*****

Texas scat scat
puts it in, in the muddy hole
Cowgirls gets it on

*****((rattle my bones))*****

taste my sweet spot
touch it, feel it, make it move
the earthquake

****((American Graffiti))******

their limbs trace, 
breathing accelerates
pulse race, excessively	

*****((Spice or Slice))******

haikus cake for two
hope you enjoy more than one
leaving you arouse

Standing still head's up
Retrospect greatest pitfalls 
Mass consciousness whim 

Wandering till dawn
Waiting brave for the result
Less breathe heartless beat

Until the mind soar
Now is  inexplicable
Sufferings indeed

People grim anew
For the best of all Juries
Render canny nod

Continued service
Captivated voter's wit
Last laugh never ends.

Being One

Glitters spread all over
Seeking reflections amidst
becoming steadfast

Long lost better half
Reunite even afar
Sharing out fragments

Standing still staring 
Beyond space and time searching
A spark that mislead

Now after decades
Attracting as one fellow
When moments unfold.

The Secret of Life

Conversed deepest life's questions
Ageless wit surmount

Whilst vibrant colors  made hue
Gently asked questions

Embraced each other
Radiating every facet

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

Ice King

With a frozen quill he unleashes brittle words--- a sword of ice Sculptured from cold glass within a fragile kingdom cracks in the veneer In a kingdom of ice a crystal world could splinter by noble warnings

Four Angels In A Field Of Green

"Four Angels In A field Of Green"
deep carmine pink lips
her flowing sun dress, fuschia 
a spring flower blooms...
lite pastel blue print
with a splash of daffodil 
innocence dances...
amber champagne flesh
her raspberry sun dress flows
bitter sweet her love...
dark scarlet draped grace
a midriff of native brown
I mingle in thought...

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.

Eyes Playing Tricks (Senryu Trilogy)

A slender black spot
On my bedroom door at night
Became a crawler.

Up and down the hall peeking,
The lightning man ran.

Hideous tree men...
Shadows like bad guys reaching...
Monsters imagined.

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.

Afternoon Tan

She bathes in sunlight
Awaiting his lotioned hands
Only to burn more

He comes to her side
Balm splattered on her soft skin
Providing massage

She, in turn, quivers
As the chilly wet moisture 
Gives way to goose bumps

Hands give skin delights
As smiles fall upon the two
And heat between burns

Rhyme's Reason

. . . stiff rhyme don't impose,
               use, describing toad or rose,
                         crisp, uncluttered prose . . .

. . . with clipped cadences,
               a thought sparkles, and dances,
                         mind's dalliances . . .

. . . rhyme, as reason's gown,
               doesn't  dumb or drab thoughts down,
                         as gem in the crown . . .
