The Zombies of Zander Ranch, Part II
They were locked inside, surrounded by moans,
the pained cries of Hell enveloped the home,
the rancher too broken to even speak,
while Rose went and got Sol something to eat.

Sol went to work, and found a heavy chest,
pushed it to the door...Read More

Why Does the Crow Cry
Many moons ago,
a languishing lamentation flow
carved a grievous path
in the red soil

Defying moral gravity,
downtrodden fallow weeps 
flowed upward   to the heavens
With river Nile ease

Native American Exodus
wasn’t done willingly
Oh, how the Five Nations
were saber led forcibly!

Time traveling eyes

Premium Member The End of the Trail
Upon a wall out in the west,
A print hung nailed to adobe.
A beaten Indian warrior hangs his head
On his horse on a cliff so sadly.

His braid disheveled, a tear I think,
A memory upon an impressionable child.
I can still feel with...Read More

Or your Love in its rawest most vulnerable desperate clinging clutching beauty

Premium Member Childhood Vacation Memories
Were I to describe a vacation,
I would be describing ten,
For we always crossed the desert,
At deep night and back again.

Summertime meant Daddy’s two weeks,
And we packed up the old 35 Ford,
It heated up at night, we carried water cans
I mostly...Read More

Blue cheese
But for your manifestation in dried pulp 
Minds neglect your invasion 
The crave for you unquenchable .

Lime light shining on your possessors 
Underdogs gazing loathsomly at your managers
Soo powerful you send jolts down the spine of those 
Witness your prowess...Read More

In Old California 22

good balance warning native youths who dare
to make him stumble they must show some care.

Premium Member Desert Gloaming
In the stray lavender of twilight
as cactis' spindled obelisks
brush spreading lapis sky
a honeyed sun 
holds tight
to desert crags
for a last glimpse
of fulgid sage
and adobe rainbow dwellings 
sprawled in the valley.
I await the candle moon's 
flickering smile
shining in gully water
and darts...Read More

Cowboy Time-Loop, Part III
The houses were gone, no roads made of stone,
just the familiar dry, adobe scene,
Linton shook his head,”I gotta get home,
don’t care if it’s barley past three!”

He reached his cottage, his mind pondering,
found his wife inside putting soup on,
couldn’t help but...Read More

In a little adobe bungalow
On the back of a lot in old El Paso,
Behind cacti and sand in s fantasy land,
Lived Mrs. Stanton, a writer.

Her days were spent among papers and books,
Dressed in calico and pinned white hair,
She hummed...Read More

As we sought out promising locales, and
Our clever quarry, from points near and far.

To See Marlena, Part I
Conley Pratt slouched over the horn
of a battered and trail-worn saddle,
been on the run for several hours now
after being caught rustling cattle.

His side ached, caked in fresh blood
from where a large bullet had struck,
he heard a gurgling rasp in each...Read More

Fall hollyhocks hug adobe walls;
Sun streaks in purple mountain canyons,

Beckon me to my childhood home.

Though tall trees are now my lovers,

Drifting Into El Rojos Cantina
He drifted into town
on his faithful quarter horse called Moose
who had a three-legged gait 
which gave him saddle sores
when drifting from town-to-town.

A desert wind hit them hard,
he pulled his cowboy hat further down his face
so the sand wouldn't sting

Premium Member Whispers Of Jaguars
The cliffs up high
tell adobe tales
laced with maize
on hawk feather breezes.
Whispers of Jaguars
travel the mesquite,
are impaled on cacti needles.

The sight of the cat
knows the darkness,
protects the Gods.
It's said even the spots
on its fur are eyes;
they follow the warrior.
Spears cannot pierce...Read More

Country road, travel me to my humble abode
The wheel twirls on the carpet of dusty gold;

The paddock filled with dancing green Mermaids; 
The gaze in to eternal beauty fades... 
Peaks Joyous of the breeze;
A kiss or two?  What a tease...

Old tumble-down adobe dwellings
That seem to glow…

Of the creatures of the night
Shine bright in the light

Wind through the sage
Whispers stories of the age
