La Isla del Encanto

La Isla del Encanto
			   (El Poema del Linda)

There was no Elizabethan
Changing of eyes
On the Isle of Enchantment;
No sudden moment of charm or bewilderment.
Rather, came a delicate awakening
Like soft dawn rising over groves
Redolent of plantain and nectar.

The Linden tree...Read More

Wars of every size
nothing new
thru the ages
taken different forms
always motivated
somehow by greed
call it what you may
causing drama
creating grief
thriving on mayhem
survival of the fittest
in the jungle of life
defying every sign of peace
conniving in every way
sowing the seeds of evil
obliterating harmony

Love destructive
What the F***!

I'm an idiot, such a fool 
Head spinning in a whirlpool
Like 30 years out of school 
And I'm breaking all my rules
So I can sit and dream and drool
Pretend I'm young and cool

With open hearts we duel

Within cries decreed with shadows mourning
Mortal sin translucent through eyes scorning
Brewing storms amidst silent atramental abyss

Blinds building walls amongst cerebral fluids
Demonic seeds with remorseful ruling hands
Chronic dementia within bloodstained sands

Initiate Introspection and Reflection

From mundane air to rarefied flair
Meant to pitch your tent on terra firma in the light
Emanating from deep within the heart where love and care  

Shower on you powers beyond corridors

Accruing interest in the rates of the heart

I've looked and listened over 
runaway tracks with brides 
aboard to be the new free

They tell of mis-demeaning from old 
gentleman that act as  young savages 
against a broken backdrop

Ranting and pitying over the pining

Two Trains
The railroad ride was smooth as silk
Though it was ten degrees.
The train was just a minute late –
No time to feel the freeze.

We passed through towns of snow-topped homes
While sitting warm and snug,
The ticket taker’s attitude
As friendly as a hug.

But...Read More

Canada at 150
Oh! Canada, you have traversed,
A hundred and fifty years!!,
Giving life and hope,
To a land that was once,
Left out as an ice desert,
You brought the whole world together,
To enjoy the benefits of democratic living,

Liberal in restoring Love,
Conservatively against retributive Anger and Fear

The L word,
like the N word,
Labels no one with healthy political aspirations would want,
no conservative fellow-conservationist of monoculturing privilege
that we would want to rabidly become
liberally uneducated
and slavishly remain unhappily in stuck.

Listen and Understand
Something very wrong is a-brewing
Something sinister,

And it ain't no robot from the future

No, there are forces at work

way back to being straight medieval

The sun came up today, 
as usual,
but with a difference.

While we slept, 
rain changed to snow,
quarter-size flakes 
accruing on the wet earth.

Temperature dropped 
faster than snowflakes,
freezing the garage door shut.

Morning brought a crystal cloak,
to cover winter's drab face;
a blanket of...Read More

Here they come

their net spread in the sight of any bird

Study Poem: Unseen Immortality
I’ll stay in the shadows
accruing interest on accolades due
for quietly providing remedies
which combat worldly ails.

Those who seek praise may stumble upon
beneficial consequences of their actions,
but more often they aggravate sores,
hidden by their alacrity.

So it will continue into eternity;
