sonnet - to love a specter
To kiss so lovingly the morning mist
And watch intently shadows of the flame
To know the way the moon and the sun kissed
Is to meet the eyes of he with no name
And see within those worlds a fervent need

Dusty books of wisdom 
prayer wheel not spinning
retreating from one another
stars shedding their satin skin 
maelstroms of unbridled egos
the asp kisses the sleeping eagle
oil slicing the throat of the people
the people await the hand of the son

Most pain comes from something we've lost
like a life or a love- or a favorite dog
how to deal with the harshness of ghosts,

we must plow on.

Will you crawl to a cave and wither away
or sit in the...Read More

Premium Member Last Pharaoh of Egypt
Cleopatra, the last Pharaoh of Egypt,
could have had Caesar or Anthony as a co-regent,
but rather than putting such power in either man's clasp,
she put leadership decisions in the grasp of an asp.

Prize catch for the snake charmers.

The venomous snake, an instant killer

And while I imagine that some might do better
  Here are some ways to bring them together

Not to mention aspartame, aspects, and aspersions
Then there's aspire,...Read More

Charmion's hand trembles
The snake is enticed to kill
Ptolemaic queen;
Asp slithers down her body
And in deep embrace they sleep.

Do not be an asp!

As he heads toward me 
With a super angry face, to dismount and unload.

He stops at the couch.
