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.

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

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,

Sansai

hidden in the woods
the last of winter melting
where fiddleheads grow -
it will be lonelier here
harvesting these without Dad

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....

Fishing in Black Sea

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

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.

Amelia Earhart's Leather Jacket

Leather jacket cloaked
upon shoulders worldly wise
together they lay
within the Pacific floor.
New Year gift to keep her dry.

Thought of First Love 2K13

Much thoughts of you as
praying am I that you may
reserve but a seat
amongst your humbled table,
if only in faded memories.

My ageing consternation

My ageing consternation

I fears death that spares
Me when I am very young
Won't it ache me when
I have no teeth to chew and
Have feeble arms, legs... to move? 
 
*
** 
*
My heart is fallen
And about to burst my hope.
When will this silent
Thief snatch my soul to the Lord
When need not to see more corpse?

In Full Bloom

twenty yards distance
oh God, the sight, scent and sound
closer now, closer
let the droning, drowsy hum
of honey bees drift softly...

New Jersey

Lenni-Lenape smokes
still climb Appalachians
To dream the Passaic`s Great Falls, 
the banks Delaware,Hudson,
and Long Island Sound`s echo.

Safe Distance

long journey over
still recall the short distance-
walked together..........!
secure distance in between.
radiating resistance
