Premium Member The Time of Lilacs
At winter end
 comes the time of lilac
pubescent shoots tipped light green
 budding up and down each branch,
young growth stretching, flexing new muscles
 ready and anxious to answer the call;
a gentle but large white sun
 hangs low in the gray...Read More

“Your Finest Hour”

pour a paint can
from isolation
a heart torn
blood spills Red 
on the crushed White empty now
absorbed in the mother vein


a tall tree, Green, waiting, 
so is life and dreams
she always speaks
of a beautiful future
fresh, romantic notions
words are always running...Read More

The Land of Legerdemain
Let's look to the land of Legerdemain
locale with surprises by sleight-of-hand.
Cards, coins, magic wands tax one's eyes and brain;
absorbed, we watch street performers grandstand.
Legerdemain - skullduggery pre-planned, 
audience rapt in magic so diverse 
assistants can pinch your wallet or purse.

Moaning Memories' Throb
draped zeal dripped
smoggy crest clipped
callous crest squashed
training taunted trance
felon feelings fiery
licking lanky crisp

punctured passion pressed
met mystic press
moaning pressed' press

haughty zeal hankered
sane seal smothered
voluptuous veil angered

porous pasts absorbed
moaning memories' throb.

Tears of Gethsemane
Tears in the Garden of Gethsemane were in a downpour
They ran deep in the cracks of pain of a divine soul
There was an endurance of a struggle to repress the world’s evils
An anguish that could not edify Jesus' slumbering disciples

Waves upon the shore, we break the darkness
Confusing ourselves 
Amongst the mingling dwellers of the eve
Absorbed in our discourse
We slip into a sushi bar

Out in the courtyard
A young couple dances
They are synchronized, in collusion
With each step we inhale warm envy
Intoxicated...Read More

And the moon, still suspended in the sky
A shy face spotlighted by the glare of sun
And where the winding and slidy road bends
blurred Shapes fade away in...Read More

I consider myself a survivor, through the years

Premium Member What Was Broken
I Opened myself up 
to your words
As they gently 
welcomed me in
Letting me experience
your emotions
Every joy, pain, love
and guilty sin

Strolled through 
each perfect rhyme
Each poignant 
word I embraced
Captivated by each 
of your stories
Which a picture your 
pen had traced

in the shining light of this dawn
I was absorbed into the ektara

A bloated river vomits its contents
Towards the sea
Debris and mud floating fast
Past boulders, jutting rocks, obstacles,
Creamy foam caps and whirlpools,
Deadly admission to the underworld below
Where the Jaguar King lives
There he sits, alone on his throne
Panthera onca, God of the night

Premium Member ASH WEDNESDAY
Black, gritty, sooty signs
Painted on the foreheads
Of humanity parading about.
My thumb would be black
For several days following
The signing of so many foreheads,
The dark soot engrained
Within my right thumb print.

Ash Wednesday is a magnet
That draws people, compels people
into the dark oak...Read More

 where crystals gleam 
i want to lie

where the scented lily opens

tender as babies breath

as desirable as a cooling whisper on a hot humid day
as necessary as the blistering...Read More

Wee Little Hands
December 30, 1985 

Wee little hands that are squeezing my face, 
Make my heart feel strangely warm. 
And in that soft, chubby childlike embrace, 
There's no intention to harm.

The Colors of the Half Man Half Beast
A sketch of cimarron 
shades: an appollyon emerges,
her spectre arms reach

like the charcoal bones
of the wild, the webbed trees.
Their silhouette absorbed

into the night clasp 
the edge of the curved
slice of moon, cocaine

colored and as potent.
For ancient stories are spun
within its...Read More

and anger that plucks the heads from flowers

from a desolated house 
where plates and pillows whisper dirty words
where mirrors dont hold reflections

Premium Member Poetry Once Inspired
Poetry once inspired
philosophical exchanges
a rational discourse which sought
the higher moral grounds of civility 
paving the way of social change....

But narcissists became the poets
self-absorbed demi-gods
who corupted poetry
till its message was lost
in insane metaphor....

When the pain labors in begging,
and the spirit is abused by ego stretching.
All wise words given not truly absorbed,
and the curriculum divine is distorted.
As pure lover, souls need to reach and apprehend,
all conditions of mental faculties have to descend.

The Local Coffee Shop

The morning haste and hurry
of the working world crowds in, 
familiar faces drinking coffee,
eating pastry.

A drone of talk – personal
and business – rises to the high
embossed ceiling, weaving a tangled 
wreath of conversations.

In the narrow dining area
tall windows look down
