embrace the black.
The Tiger In His Glory
animal, cat, death, power,
A stealthy tiger stalks his prey
His eyes alight with cunning gleam;
And tho' the world may peaceful seem
The lissome springboks graze and play --
Caught in the Sun
Where dawn is born and clouds are spun
To clothe the sky in golden lace,
The sea ignites as currents chase
Soft morning light that's just begun ...
It’s nice to get away
for a few hours or a day
As soft breezes stir night air
And salty mist clings to your hair
Stirring memories of Adolescence...
lonely, song, song,
Encased in earthen form, I rise,
held chest-tight with fear my eyes belie.
Tumbled stone and ancient steps so steep,
lead to a mound and valley deep
An Absinthe Eventide

fluttering flames create love dance
gentle caresses, tasting bliss,
intoxicates juice of sweet kiss

The Erica shines their lanterns
among the Foxtail Ferns.
The white clouds overhead feather.
FESTIVAL IN MAY
celebration, happiness, may,
The season’s fest imbues a bliss
As the grove blooms in morning’s kiss;
Where dainty festoons are aglow
Through springtime’s reign, young couples flow
Along bright paths, they reminisce.
Wet colors blended into one
New creations beheld in awe
Artistic beauties without flaw
Eyes behold glory as the sun
Textures combined into such fun!

I wish once more that you were mine
Gone are the days when you did...
The anvil wallows on his heart
His dreams, trodden, alas depart
Pride triggers a cursory front
The fierce justification hunt
He steps to nowhere from the start
Actions Speak Louder Than Words
humanity, strength, stress, words,
quintella (Spanish quintain) in pentameter
Hard-working spider, you do your part,
instinctive busy spider that thou art.
You speak without doubt as you weave your web.
It is we...
Crowned May Queen

As the music flows in my mind and soul in cheer
I dance around on my toes in the sun kissed fragrant fields
inspirational, introspection, night, day,
The day cannot turn gray
though it may be cloudy
though the storm may be rowdy
but when I walk Your way
the day is not gray.
The night is...
Timber connected by dovetail to weight born
A chair was fashioned out of choice black wood
In the middle of the front room it proudly stood
confusion, death, devotion
Such is the road of mystery
Hard to accept these things I see
Unexpected these sights I find
See spirits near though I am blind
A world I’ve...
Caught in the sun
Meet me where winding rivers run
A rising sun kisses the hills
Where misty mornings are a thrill
And humming birds stop by for...
This unprepared request of
May sound bizarre as
But look upon how safe I
And tell me if your light is
In darkness frogs...
She stood there on the balcony
watching him riding off to war
her heart was full of mutiny
crushed she held onto the bar
there would be no matrimony
Don't worry about me
I'm just playing my scripted
Be not unforgiving or hurt
Let me live without your
For I walk no paved way...
They are circling my house rooftop.
From vantage point to wall they hop.
Irritating noise filling the air,
becoming just too much to bear.
But I ‘m too much...
THE AFRICAN MAN
Fierce in his inherent pride
to belong to his own tribe.
Since the Cradle of Mankind,
others were left far behind
when he took Life as his bride.
