Dynamic Interlude


Frolicking in song
gliding along the shoreline
the heart cry out *Love...

intimate sunlight
painted on fleshly desire
ensnare wild passion,
the afternoon falls victim 
to hot love, carefree and *Fun 

two naked bodies roll endless
in warm seductive wet sand,
with each breath completion nears
perfect *Poetry

Imagination Grown Up

Childhood wings kept
hanging behind closet doors
nestled in pockets
in woolen pea coats bright blue
like clear skies meant for flying.

Hazañas suprimidas...

Where They Are

Zeke Gunn is his name.
Killing perverts brought him fame.
In jail with a shiv?
That is an affirmative.
Got to kill them where they are.

Blood Calls in Autumn

the bloom of death glows
crimson colorings mimic…
rise on angel wings
exhilaration’s free flow
new beginnings lofting high

brilliant dancers
tweak the nose of fickle fate…
candied lawn of morn
nonpareil the brown earth
apple crisp the skittish wind

rainbow of phoenix 
rebirth the celestial… 
crumbled sweetness melt heart’s fire
fear not beyond the beyond
hear Gabriel’s horn

Hush Now { Tanka X Three }

<     falls bright foliage
reflects own mirrored images 
       off motionless lake
clusters of billowing white
filter from chimmeny's home stacks

red gold brown and green
illuminating snapshots
etched in minds own eye
transferred to painting canvass
under moon's and stars dance theme

the winds of gallows
taunt not the sleeping forest
with your shivery 
hush hush this one silent night
don't wake the sleeping giant

Taking Turns

                                   slowly turning blades
                              like the hands of time on clock 
                                 longing for extra seconds 

                                    Hummingbirds buzzing
                              red gold blue and green headed 
                                    just waiting for turns
                               to capture it's own bountys

In my bag of tricks
Lays the secret to safety
A feeling of sorts!
It will make you dance silly!
Out of my hat comes true love.

Silly, is it not?
That one man gave it all up.
Not to criticize.
But to fall in love again
With someone who understands.

On wings of eagle 
Feeling as higher at last

Double Tanka   

A man of prestige      
a night in shining armor 
with one arm he lifts....
his gallant attire brushed pure-
heart aflutter, she submits....

With pink skies distant 
upon the mighty horse, one....
into the sunset
a beauty and her hero,
together, endless her dreams....

This is a story of how my brother in-law proposed to my sister(upon horseback)she 
was elated. Her hero for life, and also mine for protecting my sis and loving her through eternity.

Cruising with the Magic Mat

On a magic mat
cruising over seas with friends
to enjoy this fresh
scenes of nature;sun blazing,
like kite and eagle,we glide.

As it moves across
the forest,hills and valleys
'Wow!' I almost fall
Deb and Gwen smiled at its speed
The feeling is simply.. cool!.
