Words on a page, sounds, Mother's calling
soft tones rose from leather tomes sweetly,
through rouged lips they tumble with love.
Lullabies call through the coldest of nights

For breakfast or with Sunday brunch,
there’s a cereal I like a bunch.
But to quietly eat,
one can’t be too discreet
munching nuggets that have a BIG crunch.

Patronizing her inner streets with cool lust-hawking
she’s compromising flaunted standards with kiss-talking

January juxtapose
More cold now
Beyond hot heat!

Cold cold air
Windy surprise;
Minus heat therapy?

Winding way whirls
Shiver seeding shiver
January jostling juice

Lotus sunbathe --
Muddy pond flavours
Mid-afternoon glare

Whim and fancy;
Windy detours

Dangling edges
sharpening remarks
spewing anger
seething kettle
whistling tunes
chiming remorse
overflowing bath
steaming kettle
whining brewing
coffees  aromatherapy
sweetening words
silencing librarys
cataloging books
shelving memories
reoccurring nightmares
unfolding pages
turning lies
waiting patiently
sitting under
currents churning
butter spreading
distasteful rumors
floating boats

purpose of existence
Deep within the realms of my inquisitive mind is burdened a thought. Given birth 
by silent amazement as I pondered upon nature, its beauty eternal.

Watch that extra sweet tongue
That curls and swings and stirs
Sweetening the high strung
In clever touch that spurs

The Wall
Wherever I come
At home
Or outdoors 
No shore nor apple 
No cloud nor maple
Only boundaries to appall
The inexorable wall

Neither dream nor dance 
You are allowed

Who still could love another --

Pity how the cynicism
