Beauty Reigns
Exaltation in a lonely shore, 
Lying on the sand where no-one intrudes, 
As the deep-sea battles the waves, 
With music that roars.

The untrodden woods, 
The beauty of what the forest makes 
Amongst the quality of air that emanates from trees,...Read More

My fingers are like the twigs
in the autumn
having the construction of the sadness

Sunshine burned my skin,
Loneliness
unwitnessly comes as cancer.

eroding my teeth

betrayed the fragrance of that girl

Post-Thanksgiving Pumpkin Throw
The holiday has come and gone,
and now we’ve reached the time
for fall décor to pass away,
it yields to tinsels fine.

But all the pumpkins I put out
will have one last hurrah,
it’s time to hurl them in the woods,
while the ground is...Read More

Dear Rosie
Dear Rosie so sweet, no so clue
Less I long for the day you grow and you bloom
How I wish for your petals to not fall but rise
But you are no fool for my pretty little lies.

I owe you for nothing...Read More

I Kept On Walking
Of an august-like, autumn day:

I kept on walking
Bespoke in dust-coated
Check jacket,
Check pants,
Polo-neck jersey ...
I rambled destinationless:
A la les sapeur - 
The gods,
The directors,
Were focusing on me - 
Me the starring only
As

I kept on walking
In all my sartorial glory, consciously
Deadened unto...Read More

Premium Member Love me like you mean it
Where gilded autumn dazzles hazy morning
And golden leaves sprinkle on marigold beams
As sparrows dance and hummingbirds sing
Amble in my shadows on blue river’s prairies.

Tell me treacly secrets of whispering winds
Befriending sweet nectar on butterfly wings
When you hear me in lyrics...Read More

All ablaze those summer days,
And such sweet scented flowers!
Glorious gardens and sweet bouquets,
Summer madness in fragrant bowers!

Harvest the grapes and pour red wine;
Whispers of soft, sweet memories...
Burnished autumn days are so fine;
Wild winds scatter love's debris.

Before the sunrise, there was...Read More

Whispers of 1944

Trees have wrapped themselves around memories of time and the past.
The rails shiny yet old and the boards rotted.
Leaves and the homes of small beings scatter across the...Read More

Almost Gay Encounters



"How do you ease yourself?"
An older man once asked me
in a hotel lobby.
A strange thing to ask a teenager.
Later, on the Thames,
Douglas (a celebrated artistic failure),
drunk-kissed me on the lips.
He was sweeter
than the girl, I came aboard with.
The skinny lodger...Read More

Pale Shelter


Walking together entwined on garden path
you whispered the tune of autumn breeze.
Your enigmatic smile, the mirage of illusion,
I thought sparkled in my stellar yearning.

The northern wind has now started to blow,
your chilled lips curl like wilted petal of flower.
The diaphanous...Read More

The Narrowing

Glowing days that were once red-cheeked and ripe with promise,
Are narrowing like tall candles in a church window,
Tapering from the golden stand and the sturdy base,
To the glorious flame and the ever fading light.

A place where butterflies live
A place which helps me get happy

Shinning lights and wondrous piles

And greet upon a passing pansy

A home away from homes!...Read More

Moonbeam kiss

Here I send you moonbeam kisses
in between the stars so bright
Floating off in silent wonder
moistened in a dream this night

lingering an autumn sky
Warm as any sunset shimmer
softer than a butterfly

Could love drift kindly into this fall
As gentle nearing winter’s drifting;
I gaze at your misty muddy workman’s face
Searching, wanting, searching.

Could love fall upon rushing age,
Is there possibility for me
Dare I wish, dare I wish,
Or must intelligence win its way?

May your memory be with you
To thirst for life

And your sweet smile

Because nowadays

Autumn Season (Acrostic)

Unusual beauty of the leaves—their grandeur is so fair
Touching hearts of God’s creation with radiance bright
Urging us on to enjoy such natural beauty and delight

Amid The Jagged Shadows

" Amid the jagged shadows of mossy leafless boughs"
  - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Gold tinged paints dripped from the air,
under the clear opalescent autumn sky
jade foliage turned to full-bloom flower,
I flew my heart like a bird over the canopy.

Autumn Sonata


Storm dusts of end summer dusk disappear,
ginger sky dons the silk attire of blue,
north wind whispers winter footfall is near,
boughs reclined on trees shine in amber hue.

Gold gilded leaves forget they were once green,
from air of fall drizzle blazing colors,
