Idle sit the swords in bloodied rust
old glories faded in the long dull blades
lie about cold beauty's savage lives
masked within the scars of victors songs.

Words unbent repent in ploughshare shame
succumb to acquiescent mumbling
rising in the throat of strangled steel
tempered by...Read More

Premium Member Thus
like snow,
cold ashes fall
charred history’s
hubristic gales
truth’s torment
tucked into howling
acquiescent innocence.

Empty men
line the banks
fishless rivers
sit idle
barbless hooks
impugn the air
ivy strangled
rowboats sigh

With age color fades
into the weariness
wonder wanders
among the weeds
joy darts through
day lit darkness
hides hope’s
vacant sunshine
time taints
tomorrow’s tomorrow

the calendar’s lie
tri-colored ink charade

Joyful bells and pyrotechnics greet the year
Acclamations of the turning of a page
Now we look to future hopes with banished fear 
Under brightening days new visions to engage
Acquiescent to what fate may have in store

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.

Those who tell us to be NICE
they shout their PC gospel
in your face
while admonishing you for
your rebuttal
They accost each other
like third graders
left alone in the
school yard
when cornered
by a simple inquiry
point wildly
“He/She started it”
they cannot abide
the sound
of one hand clapping

Vague contours
your back seen against the evening glow
sliding sun in the window. 
Silent statue of indifference. 
Mute defense against my desperation

Midnight Moon

You are the acquiescent angel of my humble heart
A megalithic mosaic gladiolus garden of amalgamate art
Oh midnight moon you illuminate my glittering gaze
Thru clustered clouds and within the Minotaur maze
My gregarious guardian of heaven, of thee I praise.

Mother's Giving Nature
Mother’s Giving Nature

At the dawning of the day
Layered greens flashed through gold
The folds in Mother’s skirts 
Every creature does behold
Her mass sparkling blue 
Above as below mountains
Frilled in ferny lace or capped white 
As snow.

No other quite so acquiescent -

Light On the Devil's Chord - Day 7
I…breathe again…
Meditating on flowers of my pasture, plucked with my eyes,
Resting…open, like buds blooming, and resting…

“Take me…” he said weakly, so softly in my ear…

I greeted the demon with the warmth in my eyes, 
Upon opening them to its crippled...Read More

So long live the acquiescent queen
Even if she should have a ruptured spleen
And down to her end up having to bow
But first someway I will have to learn how.

To enhance our book’s creation,

to a condensed composition.

Not entirely acquiescent
to our last minute request;
you gave your consent
with tongue-in-cheek protest.

There were other Poets

It’s painful, we know it,

I have cried those violent prayers
hurled them, venom filled, cursing
all the powers that be - but aren’t.
Seething in the roiling pit of rage
alone amid the nothingness of all,
yet still felt the presence of a

One Year
31,536,000 seconds and we age one year,
Time never to be replaced,
Things we did and did not do,
All the happiness and all the fear.

Edging closer to our demise,
Finite things to see and love,
To touch and...Read More

Vanished Egos
The clouds pass silently above
On their way to infinity;
Sojourners drifting in the sky;
Compliantly acquiescent
to whims of dominating winds.
Our paths to perpetuity
are like those hovering above:
Short time stays in this dimension
crammed with egregious egotism;
Marvel at insignificance
as though it were significant.
Our egos...Read More

Familial Shadows
Dullness settles sharply, without warning;
The words are gone, as if they'd never been.
There is but acquiescent pain at the loss.
It is left now to wait
For the familial shadows to pass....Read More

Personal Demon
Prowling the darkest terrain of my mind,
He hunts for an aperture to govern me.
He wants only to cause turmoil and suffering,
My own personal Demon...

Forewarning that he does not wait.
My hands begin to judder, 
Uncertain who will...Read More
