anger, death, farewell, memory,
Teardrops, bagged eyes, a way of sin
The mirror reveals a lost eternal soul
A conniving move against tonight's phantom glow
Voices circle around the insomniac moon
Floating down with grace and ease
Carried off by the Autumn breeze
Rich in hues of orange and red
Landing in the flower bed
What once was buzzing full...
Coffee Colored Memories
It's quiet whisper stirs my languid mind
Inviting coffee colored memories
A young man's face with future yet defined
Each vapored breath a page in history
Familiar apparitions reappear
imagination, memory, sad,
The old man looked a little out of place
Astride his pony on the carousel
A smile from yesterday across his face
As if he were entranced in...
Once Upon a Purple Sunrise
memory, morning, summer,
Once Upon a Purple Sunrise
Pretty as a Periwinkle,
in your frilly summer frock,
the one with purple polka dots
that matched the cool of early dawn.
Haloed in hazy...

He walked down Goverment Road West
With a white cane, in shaking hand
Wearing Stevie wonder glasses
People called him the pop bottle man
With a white cane, in...
It is thirty six years ago, and I am with her in the garden,
where July is a picnic of egg sandwiches, cress-stippled,
fuzzy-downed peaches, yellow-tangy lemonade.

It's quiet here - quiet in a way that catches me off guard. The tranquility is almost tangible, something I can touch and hold and...
The Bard of Gort
Springing free from glistening
The summers heat leaps for
Whilst drifting obscurely far
A distant lark now hangs in
Floats down his sweet trill,
A Purple Ribbon
first love, happy, memory,
Mementos in a box, from years gone by
Thought to have been disposed of long ago
A glance, when something purple caught my eye
A ribbon from someone...
brother, emotions, memory,
The rain set me adrift inside a dream
My mind was on a painting miles upstream
An unforgotten "en plein" I once viewed
A light pastoral springtime interlude
dream, fantasy, memory, remember,
I long to fold my eyes and softly creep
The red wheelbarrow
death, grandparents, happiness, memory,
The old red wheelbarrow is still standing there
right next to my Grandfather’s fixed rocking chair.
Though neither has moved in a good many years
their presence revives...
A Wild Rose
death, memory, winter,
This bridge has arched the lake's narrows
for a century, flanked on either side
by Autumn trees shedding their faded leaves,
blowing with the first snowflakes
across gray stones...
When I Dream Deep
As the mornings sun - begins to shine
And memories of yesterday - I leave behind
I get to see - another rising sun
From Dovecote Hill
home, memory, youth,
FROM DOVECOTE HILL
From Dovecote Hill, my thoughts spill down on drowsy mill-town streets
and run the maze of alleyways where once my youthful feet
traced winding paths...
The Old House
childhood, family, house, memory,
Seven generations walked through your door,
Which stood so strong and always welcomed in.
You said goodbye when boys headed to war,
Two soldiers lost to battles they...
A Night At The Desolate Harbor
memory, death of a friend,
The ship in the habor on silvery seas
Lay vacant outspread 'neath the glassy moon
Drifting in cold whispers of the night
Like a drunk man shriveled on...
memory, missing you, mother
I reach onto the bookshelf
Carefully removing the photograph album from the top shelf
We nestle together on the sofa
I slowly turn over the pages
Memories - Episode 1
lost, memory, moving on,
It is said that eyes are the windows into ones soul
If truth be told they reflect ones innermost feelings
The girl observes her with earnest inquisitive...
A Nook and a Storybook
books, cute, memory,
Oh, give me a nook and a storybook
there at my mother’s knee.
Or tucked in bed, a pillow at my head
as father reads to me.
Avi, oh Avi
boy, dance, memory, remember,
Oh Avi, Avi
Sometimes, with my eyes closed
I see you dance
A dervish, whirling, like...
Lady On the Church Steps
memory, appreciation, christmas, december, feelings,
I had seen her before in the spring and summer
The homeless lady sitting on the church steps
She would ask for help from people going into...
A Beautiful Day
memory, child, daughter, growing up,
it's a beautiful day!
"Let's go, Mama!" her cheer,
down the tall slide, no fear.
Twisting, bumping, "this is fun"
one more bend then it's done.
When In Love's Immense Depths, You Are Truly Cherished
fate, lost love, memory,
Mystical web spun memories of our sweet nights,
love began under stars and brightest of moonlights.
Hold onto that image, its joyous dreaming dreams;
fiery echoes, night trysts...
