Hear 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
Dry blue eyes...
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.

A Ghostly feel that leads into a clear diamond road
I found myself seduced down an Ancient...
In Strangler's Wood - tanka version

At a dead man’s throat

that stifled his screams.
Cold Winds howl through decayed trees -
witnesses in the shadows.

Flying high on the wings of a bird
Drowning every inch, by foes and friends
Where has she...
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...
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.
A Bad Day at the Eye Doctor's- a true story

Or so I'd like to think
I traveled to my eye doctor..

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....
Memories - Episode 1

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...

Where scatterings of ferns deepened
Through insolent winds that shivered
While watching her carry a basket of daisies…
She is Loveliness,...

A fleeting still small voice tries to warn me
A sudden overwhelming desire to run
The tell tale taste of metallic flakes

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,

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,
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
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...

When General Meade met General Lee
At Gettysburg in 1863
Sons of the South battled Northern brothers
And neither side has ever recovered
Fifty-one thousand lives lost in...

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.

FIRST CHERUBIC CHANCE
This road is snake-like except
for the crusty scales of an intestinal
late dusk. A boy treaded on the
lane tracks lean and nomadic...
burnt shoulders grilled and...
In those bleak fields that so quietly lie - stilled as graves,
Between where the thin wind creaks and upwardly heaves,
Unseen feet can sometimes be heard...
