                                        jerked it
                                        out to place
                                        it back in and
                                        it seems as though I can't get any out.

                                      jerked it
                                     out again
                                  to place it back
                       in, yet, no luck in getting any out.

                                      I tried

My poet’s life (not known then as such) flowed along life’s swift course rippling with glee and roaming youth’s chasms. It then streamed relentlessly to the Now. I polish agates left in its wake so I can display them.

Winds raged as fires glowed in small frowzy shacks that strange Georgia eve an angel was born. The sky proclaimed that lives would re-arrange; with Joy’s first cry, the tempest changed to calm. Warm Zephyr - spring magic - arrived with Joy. Her laughter was kindling for hearth and home. No galas in her future ; she was poor. Never frowning, Joy would flash diamond smiles. Her Mama sewed flounces on hand-me-downs, which Joy wore with glee, celebrating life. As Papa played his guitar for them all, Joy danced and twirled. Humdrum fled in her stead. Fair, yellow- haired; slender like sassafras, this sunny lass gladdened all of the town. Humankind exists that we might have joy. Those touched by that sweet angel all learned this. Joy expelled gloom, giving her cheer to all. Nevertheless, joy is often short-lived. One strange spring day, a cold wind blew in. As thunder quaked, warmth waned, and Joy was no more.

-----------Elementary Love----------

Fate knew best, as fingers intertwined souls weaving…bringing elements together A patch of soil, a whisper in the wind a blackened storm, wish ablaze-- finding love ~***~ Earth embraced slumbered seed nurturing it making room for it, and letting it grow Through the years, this tree stood steadfast…solid rooted deeply yet pliant, humbly strong Air carries tall tree’s wish soars, touches stars that whisper to the Heavens, blow kisses Leaves dance, flirt with breeze in constant motion seasons fly on, lives pass by, granted wish Rain water: a blessing, tree soaks it in never drowning, drinking in happiness Its wood sails in the sea of memories, waves then crash in until it reaches shore Flames burn free, fire licks...feels, ravages wood. Tree’s ultimate sacrifice, exhausted Glowing embers now remain, gives soft light just the right heat, warming souls that need it ~***~ He was that awesome tree. He always said, "You are elementary in my life." It is only now that I understand… I was his Earth. Air. Water. Fire--Light. Love. --for Chris' Double the Fun~ (Tetractys) contest--

A man, 
A good man
Is now tainted
We judge by the shallow sketches painted;

 In the crimson, pallid, and cobalt dream,
The devil scheme,
A mean plan.
God bless …

A sex, 
A pretext.
Man is a lie.
Behind closed doors great heroes often cry.

River Swallow

Bird of pain makes wrong move and slips from nest, splashing into frigid, flowing water. It defies the odds by swimming to shore, shivering on slippery, concrete edge. Do I leave the swallow to die like this, letting nature take its predestined course? Its parents have done just this__turn away. Pick up the pain in my hands- offer heat, but the bird becomes weak; succumbs to death three days later- they are such fragile, finicky creatures. Was there a point in prolonging its death? What is three days in the grand wheel of time? I swallow these questions, creating more, wondering what my true intentions were. The baby swallow had been a fighter, so I must have seen myself in its eyes. And so I had tried to help it survive, merely prolonging its death by three days. I can only pray that if I fall hard, those helping hands will hold the proper keys.

Soup of Friends


want to 
write tribute
with high regard
To a fellow member of this, my site
To a super poet who gained my heart
Who cries and laugh
while reads and
writes or
my dreams
shares my life
through days and nights
Or sings the tone and note that make me fly
Who backs me up when hear my rhymes and lines
Who lights the light
Who’s by my 
side or 
spell or
tells the tale
that never ends
Tribute to you I write and need no names
Full of esteem and pride I call you friend
You’re not just one
You’re all, my

I Was Wrong

Was I
To push love
So un-returned
At first though the love from you came later
I lost mine, rapt in imagination
So time forgot
Our passion

Unseen hands


To catch

With one hand 

Never touch down

Always there waiting, watching, protecting 

Something so much greater than you or I 

Shared hope and faith

Unseen hands

Star Seeds

Skin on skin. Breath on breath. Two souls entwine, weaving into one pulsating rhythm. Give and take. Enveloped penetration- moisture dampens climactic, rubbing shock. Slow down pace, synchronize the push and pull of an engorged, dilated harvest moon. She rides the lightning; loud thunder clashes within his veins, as their thoughts fuse and merge. Tides crash on the edge of orgasmic bloom, but tantric elevation reigns them in. Sensation spirals beyond simple play- thoughts unravel, lifting up to the stars. Here, a soul is then plucked from the heavens, planted within a womb of earth and fire, as the dam breaks, finally succumbing to a release of passion and the flood.

The Rhythmic Sea

Simultaneous Thoughts of Soul Mates Soon to Meet

"She" Like one of these tears that freed itself from my misted eyes, you've slipped away from me. Oh, that once again you'd caress my face like this tear which warmly slides down my cheek. "He" I watch you, sad lady, from my table and see myself that tear that trails your skin. While you think of someone else, I'm dying to be that tear that lingers on your mouth.

The Doorway To Dreams

                           A wondrous world where love conquers the hate
                                                    Refuge is found
