mystery, abuse, autumn, death, deep,
Indian Accent, form the whispers inside
Chanting from long ago
Echoes come and go
Losing time in a soft eternal glow
A beautiful and delicate autumn mountain scene
A child of four suffers recurring dreams,
disturbing parents and siblings with screams.
When she awoke, always sore in one knee;
next to a birthmark, it throbbed painfully.
In Strangler's Wood - tanka version
autumn, mystery, rain,
At a dead man’s throat
lies the rain drenched woolen scarf
that stifled his screams.
Cold Winds howl through decayed trees -
witnesses in the shadows.

Crystal tears drown under the best velvet distinctive feel
A Ghostly feel that leads into a clear diamond road
I found myself seduced down an Ancient...

*The feline Texan way*
A clean coat of paint - on my nails
Red shade of lips - on my smile
Solid oak charms - on my wrist
beach, imagery, inspiration, mystery,
Wrote a poem in the sand,
Wonder how it fares if left alone,
Will it bear on its own merits
Or juxtapose by meddling hands,
Meantime, sun-dries it again,
art, beautiful, child, mystery,
he lived over there
in a house of dreams
love, mystery, spiritual,
Divinity lives beyond description
Alone, a weary heart cries from its pain
Desire eager for its conscription
Might truth and love turn this way again?
Sweet mysteries, this life,...

"The Ballad of The Poet Destroyer"
Destroyer, and creator of words
Flying high on the wings of a bird
Drowning every inch, by foes and friends
Where has she...
A Bad Day at the Eye Doctor's- a true story
funny, life, mystery, me,
"It was 6 or 7 years ago
Or so I'd like to think
I traveled to my eye doctor..

My dad and I we...
THE HOUSE OF SPIRITS
mystery, evil, fantasy, fear, god,
It looks like a simple brownstone building,
Not much different then any other but it’s residents,
Are of the haunted kind, not made of flesh and bone.
The Ghost of My Lonely
dream, me, mystery,
Abandoned in the fifties after the war
A freight elevator stuck between floors
Obsolete machinery, splintered old chairs
In a warehouse in Newark, New Jersey somewhere
Dead air presses...
abuse, dark, mystery,
An almost stillness came about
as she strode into my door,
like breath itself refused to move,
fearful of touching her mysterious beauty
But her obsidian eyes betrayed her....
This Thing called Love - with Winged Warrior
love, mystery, romance, woman,
Apprehensively I tramp with my lamp - through a path shrouded in gloom
Silvery shafts of light entwine and fight through foliage as they creep
Who Knows if Magic Exists
mystery, appreciation, beauty, family, friendship,
Who knows if magic exists,
if dreams come true
and whether miracles take place

to dig childhood's...
My Secret Soul

A meek Monet, a gentle Van Gogh
I may seem too nice and mild, though
The moon knows my true name
In lust I ascend to claim my...
LOVELINESS ON A HILL
I must have encountered her on a hill,
Where scatterings of ferns deepened
Through insolent winds that shivered
While watching her carry a basket of daisies…
She is Loveliness,...
mystery, angst, confusion, depression, health,
A fleeting still small voice tries to warn me
A sudden overwhelming desire to run
The tell tale taste of metallic flakes
Means my nightmare has begun
bird, moon, mystery, night,
Sitting by her open window
Was a girl deep in thought,
Lost within a book of Poe
A perfect poem she sought
With a curious eye
He watches her pen,
In the Middle of the Universe, I stand
In the middle of the universe, I stand
My mind seeking comprehension
The mysteries of life tantalize my tenacious grip on wisdom
Observing omnipotent organization
Creature In The Night
animal, howl, moon, mystery,
Where cold stars exist in the dark,
serene winds whisper to trees
and scarce human ears can listen,
lone songs wail in the distance
in frozen moon's silver spotlight,
mystery, heart, heartbreak, heartbroken, horror,
Over rocky roads
In vaulted box
No strings attached
mystery, confusion, devotion, life, lost
There she stands
Centre stage for all to see
Tall and slender
Precariously she balances.
I reach out for her
Draw her to me
My hand skims her...
faith, life, mystery, life,
I saw him on the highway
Thought he was insane
Standing with his thumb out
In the pouring rain
I don't usually stop for hitchhikers
But something said I...
where barren branches touch newborn leaves
mystery, absence, introspection, leaving, life,
Scurrying on my way home, a little leaf catches my eye, and I am compelled yet again to slow down.
a whirlwind of thoughts
compete with swaying...
