Sigils
Pencil moves across the page;
graphite on the paper blazes;
letters, join, and come together, now.


Floating on the mind like feathers,
sigils writ with light on aether,
melt upon the warmth of empty space.

Nothing left but empty mind,
forgetting words, and sigil signs,
they’ve sunk beyond...Read More

Homo sapiens in earth to Homo Martians in mars

With waters lashing oceans and tides

Her children were the Sapiens

Icarus Rising
Little boy with eyes of
cloudless-sky-blue.

Hands lifted to trace trails
in imagined aether.

Climbing, climbing, climbing,
a boy no longer.

His father, bent over his drafting table,
bringing forth mammoth birds
of titanium and steel.

His dreams haunted by man-made wings, 
bearing him upward, ever upward.

Climbing,climbing,climbing,
a boy no...Read More

In Your Memory, Year of Beginnings
From my memory and from endless maps
I recreated my homeland to write newly upon it
And on the twenty first day, God rested for months
To ensure the world could shine darkly

The February sun shone mercilessly
As the only thing that could kill...Read More

"HOME"



Inside my heart
like a beating 
fleshy molusc

unfurling like 
the darkest 
Blood Red Rose

there in the 
very core 
of Me

sits stoic enthroned 
an etheric Pearl
hidden

like a Key

On it is written
“Daughter”
“Honesty”

Travel with it
in your memory
as you cross your Seas

In your heart is...Read More

Beloved readers, here's the thing
prose is not allowed.
My responses made for Gerald Greene

"Not poems" was their reply,
when questioned for the cause.
What rebuttle could I give?
Let live is not enough.

"Odysseus and The Siren"



There he is 
like Odysseus 
bound to the mast of his ship
cursive words dispatched 
through aether to 
the somnolent nodding
in their stock 
he avoids full brace
the Siren’s enchantment
a song that sings 
his internal compass
towards her 
she commands...Read More

Memory mirror 
supple sylph yields
and naked 
walks through liquid glass
towards your dark eyes
to float in black
legs wrapped
rapture drawn deep
unclothed into your arms
bathed bare 
you climb my mountains
pull me in 
your fingers coiled 
tight and unforgiving
around my silken hair
mouth drawn...Read More

Oriental Lily's 
Stamen bleeds 
blush ochre dust
like icing sugar
duelling tongues
sweet captive 
musk

over stagnant 
white pure perfume
Stains soft feather fingerprints 
sweet bruises across warm velvet skin 
imprints a new story
a kiss lingers

“The Lost Daughter”



Thursday walked through the doors on a Tuesday
She sat in the Waiting Room, 
the place smelled too sterile, 
Antiseptic wash, 
rank clean with soaps of fine lyes 
no rugs to sweep bulldust under
such shiny spotless floors, 
All open...Read More

Silence
I waited for words that never arrived.
I tried.
I cried about it.
Only darkness came.


Never a happy thought.
No tulips bloomed here.
No gardens of song and dance.
No aether.


Angels wept by my side with broken wings.
The ivy tightened around the Iron.
I tore at my...Read More

Stalactite icicles drip from the gutters,
As the geese return in a flying v-shaped flutter.

Flapping in the folds of the once frozen winds,
Whence plants spring forth awaiting the equinox to begin.

Drizzled debris of solidified and oxidized hydrogen,
Melts from imprisonment of the...Read More

Slowly sneaking through the leaves,
Paw by paw with claws in sheathes.

The lynx is lurking through a cell diploid,
Of whence the light and aether void.

A cat that links the cracks in time and space,
Prowls 'tween worlds with steady pace.

The Last Journey
The world dims to a standstill in shouting
incoherencies the fluttering heart spew, clinching
on today through the vagaries of inertness, 
and seeking liberty, he sings the song of 
life.

Then the finality of death. 
And Agni's dance. 
The soul ascends from the...Read More

Cancellated Accursements
Banul had a knack for annoying others,
thanks to a fractious face – 
a smile guised as a grimace,
a grimace guised as a scowl,
a mouth left ajar when it should’ve been shut,
full of wrongful words
