Alliteration On My Personal lines
Accolades for an accountable and artistic "alien".
Although, adversaries aspire to amplify my Achilles' heel,
Boring born brainless bold bastards
Bombard bonafide boys buddies,
Breathing bad breath after boozing &
Breaking-out a belligerent brawl,
Conforming to congruous conflict, forcefully coming like a...Read More

By ways ambitious, and efforts grand, your goals like
tripods on rocky ground they never walked or wandered
neither far nor wide.
At times under stormless blue lit skies
or rakishly brash, bleak black skies,
weather stunts did test the glue of your motives
and fogged...Read More

In my prime I hurtled around the track
My competitors floundering at my back,
Titles and medals, many won
Accolades, a victors plaque.

Slowed down some in middle age
Wiser too, if not sage,
Aware now of worldly things,
Hormones no longer boil and rage.

Old age now...Read More

Sentenced Glory
not the beginning of verse,
but the end

Grabbing life by the throat,
the birth of a thought
 —whose story begins

Captive together,
they walk word by word
toward the jury

Scars and accolades,
joy and strife
—in sentenced glory

Standing there just a vacuum of an empty void
Visions of dreams within; her head were ployed

She wasn’t playing idle, as filling in wasted time
To her never a circus; more so of a pantomime

Fore And After
Married to only what’s on the page,
each word I wedded

The cheers and accolades silenced,
my vow applauded

Spoken or read each line was reborn,
within the covers

That blanket the fore and after of time
—betrothed to forever

Ringing in the New Year,
Ignites festal cheer.
Sparkling dance floor,
Glasses raise for a toast,
Showers of blessings,
Promises of love,
Youthful exuberance,
Burgeoning wings,
Untrammelled disposition,
Spirits unshaken,
Holidays flamboyant,
Achievements myriad,
Accolades and encomium,
Memories worth savouring rerun.

Words of A Dying God, Part I
Ever since I was a kid in college
something troubling has been on my mind,
put evolution near morality
and many contradictions you will find.

Our instincts versus our sentience,
blood programming pit against free choice,
and now matter how I looked at it all,

Hovering like a gnat that finds a face irresistible
Swatting frantically does no good as

When just a child the poet's mom said "Son,

Every Feather Earned
Life never handed her brocades
no silver lining accolades
Diligence, her saving grace
dreams and faith interlaced

She would know the deepest loss
become the one to fight the cause
Sheltering the brokenhearted
the lost, lonely, and discarded

Her loving choice to enfold
seeing the goodness in every soul

Becoming A Tree
Becoming A Tree

They can handle your shade and will lean on you too.
How many of them actually truly understand
how hard it has been for you to connect to the land.

Old books of tasty treasures

Friends? Reunited

By first class post - the invitation 
On flimsy card in pale blue tint
With sprawling “school days” animation
And scrawling script in child-like print
