His Kingdom Come His will be Done
In the winds, old histories tossed, 
To speak of it, freedom that’s lost,
From the hill tops Dostoevsky screams aloud, 
Lost their God indeed, the proud.

Much can’t say but, tis I tell,
Where is this, that conflicts burst?
Stomachs pinch and throats dost...Read More

hillside is ablaze
with glorious golden gorse
spring is here at last

lambs gambol in fields
meadow lush with verdant grass
rook collects dry twigs

a flash of white tail
baby bunny goes to ground
hawk flies overhead

Our Island is on lock down for 21 days and no...Read More

Birth To Infinity
Germ of essence. 
Human blob. 
Shattered eggshell to the chicklet hatched.
Interlocking  family of a  kingdom.
Beget or begone? Antigone! 
Pouch bearing mammal  with no issue for her milk a plenty.
Enlightened species on
a zodiac sign.
Propagating genus wild and free...Read More

After Violins, Buoyant Triangles on Red Horizon
Morning brews sunrise colors-
yolk yellow seeping over 

edges; light sterling silver 
strung; rubbed linens ironed 

across the rim. The creatural
world-a lime olive, sea blue 

cup- has a view from space:
mottled tints- mud grey, green. Deep.

Sienna red flames bedewed.
Aged worn cotton...Read More

The third door
Like spikes, they pierced into my flesh,
On the old scars trickling blood fresh,
The cold, thick, red and sticky blood,
Dripped the creases, causing a flood,
The stench of blood then mixed with sweat,
As blood trickled down my arms wet,
My urge to throw...Read More

Is it a crime
To pry apart rhyme
Stitch lines, unhitched
From native consequence

To warily marry
Unmetered time
By forced remorse
In patchwork verse

In my malaise
My daydreams ablaze
I long for eloquence...

     to drip, untripped

From my lips

The devil rides
my prideful hide
Chastise with whip...Read More

Watching the Sunset in Maui
Pictures shared over the airwaves
Palm trees giving ever so gently
To tropical breezes are captured
As our forever moment in time.
With each sunrise comes the
Rich greens, soothingly calming blues
And gently comforting whites.
A breathtaking scenery of a canvas
Of unimaginable creation.
With each setting sun...Read More

Who's who at the zoo
Anacondas crush to pieces
Bisons sport long shaggy hair
Cheetahs are the fastest species
Dolphins leap into the air
Elephants have large incisors
Fennec foxes, ears like Spock
Great white sharks unnerve the divers
Hyenas are laughing stock
Indris is a type of monkey
Jaguars are fast and strong

Cold creeps
from swift whirlwinds
left me quivering with chattered teeth
and drenching with sweat.
foreshadow of war. 

There I was
aghast on the battlefield
accoutered with no armor or shield
and no cavalrymen to deploy;
ashen with fear.

Venomous arrowheads
seared me with scars
as a sword ravaged my heart.

What is that noise?
I have heard it before?
In the ramblings...
of my loved ones words? 

I must get up and seek it out.
I rise like the house is on fire...
but in fear of being alive, 
but dead still. 
I rush.

The Choice is never Ours
The world was on fire, no one could save me but you - "Chris Isaak - Wicked Game"
Yes, the world was on fire,
Set ablaze by those powers ruling over us all
And I, stood there,
Drenched in sweat,
Wanting to vomit, feeling suffocated,

Viola Viscera
We set foot on dry grass at the cockcrow 
 of a nascent union. 
Cheek to cheek as Cupid towers over,
shooting arrows at a dyad draped in fire,
gliding through the tundras of charred weeds,
 fin-like petals quake beneath our feet.

Clothed in Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness-

Autumn-Naked in translucent clouding dusk;
“Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness”
Your illusionist premises grandeur;
Fallen autumn, calm leaves me;
Brisk equinox clothed in breeze;
Over whelming weathers your view
Spring-Lavender spirit smells your soul;

I am stuck between

Crying peacefully within

Searching for love to and fro

Rolling through my mind, 
I see death...Read More

Ibykos Fragment 286 Translation
Ibykos Fragment 286, circa 564 BCE
loose translation by Michael R. Burch

Come spring, the grand
apple trees stand
watered by a gushing river
where the maidens’ uncut flowers shiver
and the blossoming grape vine swells
in the gathering shadows.

Eros never rests
but like a Thracian tempest

Golden trophy of betrayal
‘I wish for his head, on a silver platter’
Mother whispered to daughter
‘Go dance my love, grant me the golden trophy’

‘I love you, mother,’ confidently
She took to the grand floor
Made it her playfield, a heroin
They were present, among them

Blinding dazed commuters heading west

While towers scraping as high as they can reach
Just crave to punch their...Read More

No Way Out
The journey kindled,
hopes ablaze,
a future now unseen

Moments of ecstacy,
moments of grief,
lost ashes inbetween

Cowling on fire,
time a slow burn,
the stationmaster cries…

“The tracks have melted,
locomotive’s in flames
—your ticket singed and fried”

In the flames
The peoples hearts overtaken with pain
 Want but have not overflowing disdain
To give up hope is a troubling thing
 Place matters not peasant nor king
We exist for another our sole purpose in life
 Creating a bond befitting husband or wife
