A young woman, her form
still bearing a mirage of beauty.
In her detail she decays
closer still, a beauty returns
as a micro-delicacy.
Her charm dips in and out
like a swan through the bodies spoilage.
Da Vinci and his artist acolytes,
those red-handed anatomists,
all owe her...Read More

Wisdom murmurs amid paucity of things—
seekers contemplative in cross-legged trance.  
Pondering vaguities pensive meditation brings—
to apprehend with nonchalance of glance. 

While to acolytes, such subtleties impinge— 
denied are those of stifled grasp. 
For in their minds a fetid dinge,

Disney and the Millenial Acolytes: A Generation of Failure and Death
More or less, half a century ago,
A darkness hovered over this world,
Our generation dwells in this darkness today.
When does the light of hope become evil darkness?

When the generations that come after become the personification of evolutionary failure?

When we worship inanimate,...Read More

None keeps its inventory
But it creeps into a story
A story of a modern society
Which is plural in nature;
Partly of a rural nurture
Partly of an urban stature
Yet must remain together
Lest it falls a part 
For unity is strength. 

For  peace.

Bishop Bougram's Apology

On acolytes  below while I was above
When the holy Church I entered  in my prime

Premium Member Lean Time
As the days shorten and skies darken
Greenwich meantime feels like a lean time.
With a heavier coat I go out scarfed,
my hat pulled down, to find those last leaves
compact in corners and crevices.

With whitening fingers gloved I crouch
and pluck them for...Read More

an archway
an archway

an archway opens onto a soporific plaza
which pours outwardly in colorful asymmetric
displays that once incited the bones of an organic past
steeped in a rich broth, an ancestral heaving stew,
quietly simmering to a point of boil.

Darkling of stealthy in some cauldrons iron pit

A few years back,
in the prior millennium,
1993 to be more precise
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
born without a stage name
had his book entitled "The Evolving Self" published,
by which he meant The ReGeneratively Nutritious Flowing Self,
but he was probably shy of too-long, user-unfriendly, titles,

"Until an hour before the Devil fell, God thought him beautiful in heaven."

A thousand, million years had fled

Nobody's Land
Lenient, odd reciprocity,
chains by chains, combustion of lies,
exposed vulnerability,
an abyss full of screaming cries.

A minute passed by, I commend,
a tenacious wheel in motion,
drifting across its star-crossed end,
trespasses without precaution.

Invocation in the making,
as acolytes conjured a spell,
a ferocious beast, summoning,

Pope Francis's belief in the Almighty
has been brought to serious question,
when, on his speech on Origins, 
the Bible received nary a mention -
save for a passing glance at Genesis.
His credibility has dwindled rather perilous
it seems - considering, of course, Catholicism's...Read More

Midnight at Blackfriars 
The city spires are hidden, 
It’s getting colder fast, 
It feels as though we might have 
Some snow this month at last. 
The wind sweeps keenly through St. Giles(1) 
The hour is getting late.

A Tree on Winter's Night
now seen 
a verdant tree,
its trunk and limbs
splayed in the round, 
perfect radial symmetry.
Were nature absent intellect
might such majesty e'er result—
accidental tour de force as eons pass,
acolytes of chaos then, gathered to exult?
Boughs' burden, scalloped snow of purest...Read More

Acolytes light the candles
As the pastor reads each name
For newly dead or new baptized,
The candle size the same.

I know some faces watching
Are glistening with tears.
For newly born or just departed,
There's a span of a hundred years.

In Bruges: red brick and windmills

The kids, their teacher, sprouts and dandelions
the aquarellist and a wet bicycle.
Sit on the worm bench as bytes on the mainframe
wiped pastel of a bright warmth with shades of red

The hall echoes with the drone of 
ecstatic chants and gongs,
‘midst a jungle of jasmine and red lilies.
Steep stairs of tread worn, 
silica-laced granite and 
indigenous red brick meander.

Yellow-jackets buzz, 
and red-robed women with bound hair
and tightly laced hearts
