Inklings of Spring

Winter finally moves his lumpen sluggish weight,

Spring is like a shy dryad shivering in his arms

Wind's whippets droop to trifling whine

Sullen rain hisses to a grizzle.

tiny fruit buds swell enough to moisten lips.

First daffodil maidens preen, bright faces so fair!

Chattering...Read More

The Crying River
Touch the rising mist of cherry smiles
Herald cries of joyous miracles aflight,
Echo brisk allure of God’s spearing light
Cry in the bosom of Abraham’s seed
Refrain the ways of fame and greed;
Yield to peace though hate overrules
Intimidate the wicked with warm arms
Negate...Read More

But A Love Now Long Gone
One summer’s eve in Spain,
I fled through an open window,
Butterflies aflight
In the very pit of me,
And I tramped the streets,
My heart abrim
With such a love,
But a love now long gone.

With my final matches,
I forged a heart
At that maiden’s doorstep;
I was...Read More

While
plumes
flutter
in rhythm,
swans twirl a ballet
girdling  through agile quills aflight
and pivot in choreography of glazed moondance
till wings leave at  finale's point  when icy November appears on a graywashed stage.

the meeting
It was a day like no other
ethereal was the feeling in my soul 
my longings knew no border
as hope soared in a thousand fold.

The rendevous pointed out
to the dot of 'i'
the fine print sorted out
 to the cross of 't'.

COME BACK, COME BACK HOME
A DISTANT LAND YOU SEEK
AWAY FROM YOUR MOTHERS ARMS
NOW SEE WHAT PRIZE YOUR PRIDE 
HAS GIVEN YOU
A BITTER PAIN OF WORTHLESS GAIN

NOW YOU STAND AWRY WITH SHAME 
AND MAIMED
LOST IN AN ISLAND OF AN ANCIENT TALE
YOUR FRIGHT SEEMS LIKE AFLIGHT...Read More

She glides in splendour along the fields
with orange lace on rafters,well-hued
by fragrant air as her waltzes roam
to dazzle boughs thrilling a night's mood.

As she waves flipped arms, the petals blaze
upon twirls of gossamer display,
and every dip enchants her rapture
like a...Read More

DRAGON EYES
Darkly glancing dragon eyes
	Dancing pools of fiery light
Sparkling gems witched from the skies
	Emerald, pearl, and ruby bright
Opal, sapphire, amethyst
	Coyly blend their crystal beams
Diamond spheres by heaven kissed
	Doorways to a thousand dreams
Wild -- undreampt since Ancient Time
	When the dragon ruled the...Read More

Through a glazed nightfall shimmering on meadows
Gold rays, moontones, widescreen-to-sky entices
When stars bloom freely on southern hour, find me
Tracing dusk's lattice


Catch the mist aflight before the glow withers
While basin of light reaches its finale,
Then my skin will begin to memorize

Veiled Lives
You and I
dancing in the margins
ever so gracefully.
Cues never lifted,
Doubts aflight.
Biases.
Perpendicular lives.
Merging?

All Alone, I Stand In The Crowd
All alone, I stand in the crowd.
All aground, I travel the oceans.
All adrift, I'm stuck in the bog.
All afresh, I'm back in the stale memories of a wasted past.
 
All aflame, I freeze in the cold recesses of my soul.

The Disappearing Self
On plateau, the view is everywhere,
and makes the body stretch to meet it.
Something calls, beyond the railroad
far away, beyond the storm clouds over there.
And in its shy defining, there is restlessness.
The earth is waiting for reply,
and that unspoken; words are...Read More

Basketball
Bouncing 
A rhythm on repeat   
Exhaustion heavy 
Impossible to admit defeat 
Nor to succumb to the pain 
Winner is not a title for the weak; 
Every action with immense prudence 
Adrenaline surging 
The comfort of the texture 
Beneath...Read More

Rising Angels
Seven and two all aflight.
Heros of a triad banner.
All fighting toward one goal,
HOME.
They think of it daily,
as they do their business
of being warriors.
We are like them,
in that we want,
the same things in life,
Safety and security.
Only, they stand for it.

A Sonnet For Reckless Abandon
The sun in the sky drew my attention
I gazed into it like my lover's eye
The moment was perfect for retention
And I could do naught but just watch and lie.

Then daydreams took hold and I was aflight.
Clouds parted just to allow...Read More

Heart Awakening
I met a man the other day
He really takes my breath away

His wit is quick
His smile delights
His spirit sends my heart aflight

I think he knows what I feel
It's hard to tell, his lips are sealed

I'd like to get to know...Read More

Crazy
Crazy;  just
unyielding lust aflight which was restrained
Escaping love for life
It flirts isistently with the wind
of the breath that is,
my life

Hurling mysteries grand to be told to oneself,
Until overwhelming truths will cease to be part of your youth,

Feel past, present,...Read More
