Lady Liberty Speaks
Art History

I represent hope for the oppressed to sow

 Pungent salts mixed with glassy sands

When you supersede your profession you become Caren
Above and beyond

Both profession and calling

I only wish every child has a teacher

Like Caren in life

Then not a single child

Would ever be left behind

And have a fighting chance

To advance

I have always been a lover of art,
So much that I did no harm to any human,
Feared all creation as sacred creatures,
That wait only to shout to God, Gloria!

Blessed are the rich that gladly share their wealth

We're human beings- masters of this world;
what great accomplishments we have unfurled!
Between each other, we have kept our peace
most of the time- this virtue, we release.

And yet, so capable of causing death-
annihilating heartbeats, precious breath,
with wars and crimes that take...Read More

our money just to ride on the road

During autumn or winter, 
From the town of Sighnaghi -

Either to the vast Alazani Valley, 
Or  to panoramic view of

Caterpillar

I flick off in its advance
a caterpillar crawling up my pants

but not before my curiosity
has observed it carefully.

I watch its hairy body 
undulate with regularity

its tiny prolegs barely visible
beneath thorax, abdomen and mandible.

Its identity eludes me –
(I was never good...Read More

The Moonlight Fades From Flower And Rose

The moonlight fades from flower and rose,
A treasure laid forgotten, unfold,
Tis said chaptered verses that are prose,
In a limbered respite be unsold,
Tossed aside to advance ways for those,
Mystic stories cast oft in a hold,
Moments...Read More

To Win By Losing, or The Battle of Guilford Courthouse, Part II
...Through the woodlands the riflemen did steam,
reinforcing General Greene’s second line,
the British pressed on, still on the attack,
but they had quite the devil of a time.

Marching through forest that broke up their ranks,
while Americans poured on musket balls,

If you want to give me a car

A fire truck siren would be perfect

Moon over Aphrodite
Constellations brighten
while planets light the in-between.
Lifted above the evening,
the crescent begins to sink,
but one luminary guides
his journey from underneath.

Close witnesses advance-
partners who will never touch.
A dance defined by the ages;
the passion of unanswered love.
Except one glimpse remains enough
to spend forever...Read More
