awkwardly I dance
because I have two left feet
hard to find partner

I watch you dancing
it seems you have two right feet
let us share some shoes

will you follow me
for if we move together
dance will have purpose

you move fluidly
my feet provide the structure 
made for each other

no limitations 
with artistry and purpose
we dance with the stars

life is not boring
we live within the rhythm 
music from heaven

God is our maestro
leading us to forever
in death we won't part

Life's Greatest Anguish

                                       life's greatest anguish:
                                  passion felt yet unexpressed
                                        harrowing hunger

   love in confinement
   a required sacrifice
desire in f^l^a^m^e^s

                                                                        cravings and longings
                                                                    consume the tormented heart

Borrowed Sweetness

A Weakness among us

When the rain falls from
Heavens that God created,
we accept through Faith.

When a story's told 
of long ago we doubt, Oh  
Ye of little faith ..

deeper than twilight
the moon to moon afterglow
a wave crush the mood
Stereotype motion
Two face under water 
Human injury

My Simple Valentine Story

dancing clumsily - shy blue cowboy eyes smiling. . . . he swept me away marriage fast foreknown - no proposal from his lips. . . . just lots of kisses my man of few words tells me, “I’ll always love you”. . . . few words are true words

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

Start and end dramas 
Decipher complexities
Found partial answers 

Paradigm issues
Confusion overrate quest
Esteem falters wit

Stand mindful actions
Stuck within clearer pathways
A stretch still needed

Persistent conscience
Always craved enlightenment
Recall life purpose.

East Jesus

Picture 1	the message is sent
		loud and clear to the four winds
		nobody listens

Picture 2	the whirlwind roars past
                leaving in its wake havoc
                and broken spirits

Picture 4	drinking to old age 
                drowning memories in wine 
                that has gone sour

Picture 5	racing against time
                in youthful exuberance 
		life turns to ruins

Picture 7	sought eternal fame
		now, imprisoned in stardom
		she pleads for freedom
