Premium Member Awakenings
For years she had slowly slid from well cared for home 
to musky boxes and rugs.
Sitting in a chair, watching old movies,
pretending the devastation around her had not occurred.

Her senses deadened, she neither saw the clutter
nor smelt the molding curtains...Read More

Premium Member Death of a Poet - Leonard Coen
When you died
My heartache reached my bones.
You seemed an old soul, but ageless.
Your death caught me by surprise.

Your deep, long, full voice
never to sweep through a room.
Never to fillet my soul
or plunge cold reality into my heart.

The lingering lines of...Read More

Premium Member False Dawn Day
Away from heart and hand 
With smiles loving embracing

Why dream I of fertile flowered valleys
And chatoyant streams that lie outside soul’s watchful door?

Why not flowering here
With barefoot wading bringing tingling delights?

Perhaps just yearned for foolish feelings, you say 
Sighing within...Read More

Curiosity's bane
A tree, a seed, prescribed, off-limits.
Naked, clothed, some years, fresh still,
Fair, hell, firm, etc.
Dangling tags, seen on anything

Man learns, as his feet stands and sits.
He meets firm labels and loud leads.
Patterns his feet flow in, with ease.
And ends, well-clear from...Read More

The Slow Hands Flies

'Your soft slow hand feels like flitting fireflies ' 
Albeit, naught fireflies had, but slow hand flies,
Here in Hawaii where our slow hands rise,
E'er so smoothly, while they lift to the skies,
Their flowing long arms stretch lengthwise,
Everybody...Read More

Lovitivity v1
Time is the recorder, measuring events that expire
And not the Judge, deciding when events transpire
it silently and anonymously prints beginnings to endings
The world juried our Love affair
Earth’s, Mountains and Rivers observes Us moving as fast as a locomotive
Its verdict mellow,...Read More

Premium Member Standing Stones



They reach away from our reality
as if we are a momentary blur.
Here by the ice-gnawed stones,
my mind is a broken-jaw,
bones rattle in fissures of time.

Menhir, dolmens and megaliths,
under the blunt teeth of ageless winds
the stones raise their wilderness questions
while the...Read More

Premium Member A Sonnet on a Could-Have-Been


Iberia, I long to breathe you in
as long ago I did. . . and then exhale
sangria nights with lace against my skin!
Sweet temptress draped in beauty, you unveil
Flamenco’s soul, exhuming history -
impressions left by ancients on your face -
from Roman...Read More

Breathe Deep
Here you collapse, crying alone
Does the ocean make you feel 
Like all your desperate appeals
Break futilely as waves 
On impassive stone? 

Let me shake this icy rain off you
Let me drape this purple cape I made you
On your sorrow

As I sit here in this still cemetery facing nomadic west,
Under these ancient oaks with deep green leaves descending,
I see the ghostly dead before me rising up as star zephyrs,
The men and women that once spoke a multitude...Read More

Premium Member There I Am Ageless

I peer at myself in the mirror.
My forehead is nice though I like it covered with bangs.
Lines there are to be expected,
and so too, the crows’ feet at my eyes.
At the base of my forehead are dark brown brows.
They are...Read More

Premium Member Old Woman


She slipped into a coma,
fell away,
her ghost groping;
not blind, but blinded,
as if the life in her head
were too bright.

We bundled her things,
squeezing shoulders,
taking deep breaths
dizzy with relief.
A nurse hastily covering
gray naked toes.

The old woman found herself
on her mother’s lap.
Dead pets,

Many longs years has he; this man.
He doesn't speak often.
Some listen, some turn away.
Walk away, you will be back.
His words are ageless;
children smile; knowing what he is saying.
Listen to this old gentleman;
he knows what he speaks;
past, present and future lives.

Moring of the Great Horned Owl Part 2

With a height above the field less than 
his body’s length and only seconds away
to his kill, the great bird swung his wings
back and upwards in a dramatic gesture, 
breaking his speed much like a jet reverses

Blooming colors in shade and sun;
Fragrant elegance, not to be outdone!
In field, garden and flowerpot,
The rose, the violet, and forget-me-not.

Proud and erect upon the stem,
All who pass must notice them!
Pastels and deeps; an array of brights,
Blaze the days and scent...Read More

Sphere of love

It was the point of a meaningless moon,

Endless Thoughts
In assorted hues till endless is broken,
A mortal mind wishful and boundless
Will as ripples circling on the deepest water,
Awakens joy - furies in trends so ageless
Until deaths’ encrustation suppress.

There vast of flairs, it owns...Read More

My (bleeding) heart is filled to overflowing, 
To see any growing glad(iolus), garden glowing;
Each sun peached, (petunia) petaled delight,
Is frozen in precious moments of pure delight,
From bursting buds, to the spicy boom of blooms,
Nature is most generous with their heady...Read More
