A buried treasure

where once we sat and sunbathed

Lost to a watery grave

Like the moon on Halloween.

Guard love one, at peace, beneath

Your presence shall ever haunt

The Cloudiest Day

I didn't like losing you
And my tears cried the truth
With rain that came
On the cloudiest day
Like heaven was crying too

You Love Me More Than You Love Yourself

Oh, my children; precious babes!
I've placed all your pictures on the shelf
And as I wander toward my grave
(I realize)
You love me more than you love yourself...

The Spirits Speak - Triolet

Inside this tomb
the spirits speak.

They hate the gloom
inside this tomb.

They fuss and fume
and shout and shriek.

Inside this tomb
the spirits speak.

Life like Autumn's leaves
returns to Earth's coldest soil; 
Nature reawakens
each spring, but life never does:
Mankind's last hope lays in grave.

Best foot forward

Front-line in depth of mortar
Whistling shells and screams of torture
Blood clott gurgles death bell tolls
Hell of pain in body enthralls
Danger rings apprehension stalls

Death has no hold on me
For am only asleep for but awhile
I have only slipped into the valley of rest
To rise again to be at my best
For this life is only just a test.

dandelion clock

dandelion clock
on the half hour
and he might miss his train

he does
and curses strongly
enough to stir the dead

are blowing dandelion clocks
stifling their graves
