Like anything
There are two edges to this sword
The ragged one has, for now, cut too deeply
The reality of its cleaving
And the intent of the hand it is wielded by
Thickens the blood that weeps from its wounds
To collect in a puddle...Read More

Observe
Spells of luscious sound and wondrous vision
bells that fill the air with mystic tones
wells of crystal cascades sating endless thirst 
dells a golden haunt for clustered stones

Wings propel red robin’s noonday flight 
rings affirm a passion spanning many lives

Betrayal
Her eyes betrayed her and in that moment
he saw an ocean between them-
so sweet her smile that so oft would light his world
now empty, cold and false.

Her manner though polite held no warmth
he saw a desert between them-
so empty her...Read More

Premium Member Great Escape
Good night my playful heart, waltz merrily in fairy dreams
Reveling in memories of beloved blissful blossoming springs 
Engaging her wishes in music of gentle whispering winds
Ascending to ecstasy, eliciting elatedly what romance is
Traversing the night-sky, stargazing in her doting company.

Worms and dinosaur blood, toil and fuel,
Doors I’ll hold for you.
Pure, old as moonlight, the marbled
Cloister of your pleasance I’ll affirm

They will come for your museums, my love.
They will come for your big, fine Cadillacs…
choke-weed and cottonmouths infesting gardens.

Stings of Death
Quicker than a peep of life, death lobs in the street-
Of life, to cease cuteness with alarming sobs.
As pigs rootle for truffles, so it's courier prowls to -
Sting aged - rich and poor, even infants fostering,
Amidst all our pleasures, our...Read More

MY SPECIAL CHILD
What makes my son special? Let me highlight his qualities…
since his milestones are  my accomplishment-trophies.  
He recently received his “Most Generous” and “Most Well-Groomed” awards;

I Gave it My Best

And beat most back with my baton

A few battles will have to wait another day
Certainly to join other dragons I have to slay

Our first love
We must stem a seam when
when shaking hands slip
either side of an engaging story
Fixed into a ribbon it
may be secure
Its luster ensured
If loosened, its grief
may stay
and engulf us
They may call it 
feeble
but we deem it 
our first love

It may choose...Read More

My secret
The fear of acceptance is my greatest denial,
It weighs down on me like an anchor of hesitance,
Yet my face is the epitome of self confidence,

Ode to a Certain Ode that You Will See in August - I Hope
This ode's impossible, a structured mess
of playful praise, stacked serious on a shelf,
closed spheres of wit contained. I must confess
I think of it in excess to myself.

It hoards the writing room inside my brain;
it locks the door four times, once...Read More

I BELIEVE IN MIRACLES
Miracles* affirm God’s omnipotence
Testifying of His great existence
Upholding my Bible faith’s persistence
Defying skepticism’s insistence.

I believe in the Lord of miracles
Along His love, grace, mercy-might buckles
Freeing my heart from selfishness’ shackles
Toward joyous service-height pinnacles.

*John 2:11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus...Read More

Feeling a rumbling deep in my gut
I'm not quite sure what that’s all about
as I clench the sphincter in my butt.

Something rank is trying to get out
and based upon my bloated bowel
it's going to succeed; I've no doubt.

Time Remembered
Take a breath,
  affirm your life

Take a step,
  confirm it twice

Your mind reflects,
  as words surround

All time remembered
  —truth unbound
