Where The Sycamore Grew

The sun-yellow house seems smaller somehow,
regarding it now, with our time-worn eyes...
The street seems narrower, and the trees are taller..
Where once open fields spanned...
How Poetry Began
all, nature, poetry,
That thing that we call poetry -
when asked where it began,
I’d say it started beautifully
before the dawn of man!
It glistened on the oceans
before man came...
WHEN I STOP AND PRAY
all, devotion, faith, inspirational, life,
When the storm clouds boil around me,
And the lightning splits the sky--.
When the howling wind assails me,
And life's sea is rolling high--
all, age, cat, life, wisdom,
Each day Annie Lesley opened a can
Her eighty-six-year-old hands trembling
As she sat with her cat and ate pet food
What is wrong with this elder’s rendering?
A Long Loud Sigh

sometimes you are in its minimal spotted light...sometimes!

moved but frozen...like a stranger it moves in,...

With clear access to writing that was mature and bold.

One Brief Moment

Look...See how long nights are drawing in.

Opaque dusk grows dim;
And just outside the creaky little garden
Stood opposite the empty wood
Black Diamond Night
all, body, death, history, lonely,
Black Diamond Night (a coal miner’s cemetery)
Where the ebony, we call “NIGHT”,
Old black rocks sit under the twilight
Diamond shape eyes unclear and lonely,

Everyday -- Holding Hands
Glory of her magnificence
all, change, longing, love,
buried under sandy shores,
a rare pearl slept comfortably
behind her walls.
Fate must have been kind,
for a common man like me,
to stumble upon her shell.
all, beautiful, beauty, birthday, body,

all, blessing, nature,
It's how the stars are lit at night
and how the dew drops glisten
Tell the Night to Hold Me
all, forgiveness, heartbreak, heartbroken, lost
I made for you, a castle
But I built it in the sand
A smile appeared
Silently, I sat by,
To listen to the sounds of the world,
Of all the voices that touched me most,
Were those caught in the angelic wind.
I often scribble in the sand
The words I find so hard to say
And hope the wind will come along
And blow them all your...

Mid-morning she sees the sun ahead
Her death flowed in a messaged bottle
Gazing into her brown eyes upon all open sores,

"Mine all Mine!"
A thief I long to be
Your eyes original like the moon and sea
A lover in the world............
An Anthology, you walk and talk like...
If My Love For You Was Greater
all, love, romance, romantic, planet,
if my love for you was any greater

She dismembered his erection
For his love...
all, cowboy-western, family, funny, life,
When hard times come they sit a spell,
Like kin folk come to stay
A-packin' troubles, pets an' kids
That always get ‘n your way.
It's drought an' flood,...
Never Shame a Woman
all, passion, women,
Never ever shame a woman
for the fire in her soul
still your fear that you're unable
to give that which makes her whole
Never ever shame a woman
Hidden beauty resides not in the grace like charms
Of coy smiles
Painted across a gentle Madonnas face.
Nor is she vested within the chastened vows
