this lusciously lavish landscape
A Poetry Collection
art, guitar, humanity, introspection,
Through the glass
Within the past
They never last
Head in my hands
As I stare overhead
At the hourglass

Grasping for air
Now walking through the autumn of my life
Where maple leaves have turned from green to gold
I watch them fall in breezes turning cold
In a whirl-wind...

Waking to cold blown tent, ground frozen icy hard

The Maltese Moon
beautiful, introspection, travel,
The Maltese Moon,
she draws my eyes
to shapely orb
in starlit sky
she smiles at me
with wanton grace
and spills desire
upon my face
I'm all awash
in milky glow
and that comes from within

I have no sorrow, for sorrow is small,
And can't be held guilty for choices made.
Reflections are scrawled on mind's darkened wall,
Will leave a stain as...

Try to feel pain with no tears
Try to remember years past and often lost

Passing through framed windows like ours,
I recall your tales of reckless war and lost friends
that burned your innocence at 21... and though
you claimed flashes of...
angst, death, introspection, loss,
stars twinkled brilliantly
against majestic snow-capped mountains,
delicate pure white flakes danced;
swirling, twirling, rhythmically.
she stood, nose pressed tightly
against the window pane; gazing in awe
at the magic the...
Other Side of the Wall
art, friendship, imagery, introspection,
is that a cry
yes I listen
to a wall
A white wall

I feel the wall
My heart stops

I offer my humility
the only gift I can give.

Wanderlust Of Imagination
imagination, inspiration, introspection, muse,
In the endless expanse
of what exists

conceived in a continual curve of mother-of-pearl panache...
The Things I Cherish
The things I value,
The things I cherish,
Are things no one else will
When I perish
Do I write a missive
Explaining the why?
Would this help save things
A Ripple In Time
A new borns cry
Tearful last good bye
Swaying waves of golden prairie grass
Shifting desert dunes - an hour glass
An acorn dropping among forest leaves
To mighty oak...

A reflection of the coloured pencil drawn sky
skates on the glass smooth surface below it.
While a rebellious group of shades take their positions
I Think Of You - Ground Zero - 1
I Think Of You - Ground Zero (Part 1)
Leaving under a blood moon
I Think Of You - Where You Bloom - 4
A transparent melody paints the walls
in the coloured scent of fresh linen.
The changing of sheets in the morning air
can not erase our dance from evening...
Frothy waves stretch to kiss toes
Hikers plodding sandy coasts
Leaving imprints on the shore
Who journeyed here, perhaps this morn
As the orange orb created dawn
Summoning sun worshipers
Shadow of Death
angst, destiny, introspection, pain,
My shadow flirts with the sun
As I caress the darkness
We are one and separate
As my shadow smiles
Anxiety suffocates me
The shadow will soon fade
I shall die
