Twilight


twilight fondles eyes

lifting her silhouette high

against lucid clouds--

flesh undressed beneath torn trees

drowning in pools of farewell



Tanka Written With  A Decent Pivot
For 	Chris D. Aechtner

Garden's Beauty

Its charm, its bloom
A gift of spring breeze
Disappears fast
Something not oozing from heart
Something borrowed doesn’t last

System Overload

Darkness consumes me
Corrupted thoughts take over
Soul becomes hollow
Self castigation occurs
Tears of blood destroys all hope

Apocalypse

All came to a stop;
Wintry ash fell to the ground
as the sky grew pale;
This is how things should have been -
I couldn't contain my smile.

the holy see

The Holy See 

Pope Benedict
Hands in his purple dress 
Fed up and tired 
Wonder if God in heaven 
Has not gone and retired too




Prejudices
Who will stand up
And defend the Christians 
A vanishing group 
In the sea of intolerant Islam 
Cowardly is our silence

White Lines In The Road

The white lines beckon Adventure around each bend The world awaits you Make sure to call your mother And remember the way home

THE NIGHT WILL ALWAYS COME

Trees swaying at night
Dark…with stars shimmering bright
Silhouettes of you
I hear the music inside
It has stopped and you are gone
