Dithering with hesitation on brink of abysmal precipice
Infinite pitch black void zooms,
I vacillate to pitch headlong (head over heels)
where freedom looms
large (think) cosmic size grand canyon grooms
espouses, and cloisters unbridled wedded bliss
structured sound of silence booms.

Dawdling against inevitable fate
temporarily holds in check (mate)
eternal salvation woebegone
grievance to ameliorate

Premium Member Death of a Poet - Leonard Coen
When you died
My heartache reached my bones.
You seemed an old soul, but ageless.
Your death caught me by surprise.

Your deep, long, full voice
never to sweep through a room.
Never to fillet my soul
or plunge cold reality into my heart.

Being Nothing, is Something
Your Morning Cup of Chocolate...
A poem from the poet Kabir, I call "being nothing, is something."
What is space, but the absence of something, yet in this vacuum we exist?
Certainly, Christ, Jehovah, and Allah can be present there too.

A gentle soul, a humble son, shed softly in the garden
Seduced by man, led to betray, a life to pray for pardon. 
Tones which spoke, with perfect tune, would pierce his tender marrow
To release joy, or conjure pain, and make...Read More

LEGEND OF LOVED ONES' ETERNAL PRESENCE

So many children, so much loss.
Many tears shed, from many a different cause.
Maybe Mom died of cancer, or a dad with no answer.
A drug deal gone wrong, broken homes and broken bones.

Forgotten and neglected, maybe caused by a bottle.

BRIDES have wedding rings so lovely,

“We have no milk,”
you speak quietly
in a tone reminiscent 
of another’s observation
that wine had run out
at a wedding feast.
Miraculous transformation
of wine or milk
from pitchers of water
seemingly absent from
the church job description
of educator and
director of parish music,
a deficit, in proportion

So Obvious You Seek Attention
no one listens to me when I talk
so I write poems and sing songs
I "want attention" when I talk
hear it, read it, I'm long gone
never around people that talk
busy avoiding their attention
when not present people talk
absent yet centre of attention

Be thankful of the dawn for a new day begins

A crescent moon says good night to the milky way. 
Trees stand still, asleep in the absent...Read More
