Dust
Dust

It lands on tables and under your bed
It also clings to your computer screen
on clothes it goes
and of course
up your
nose

My
poet’s 
life (not known
then as such) flowed
along life’s swift course
rippling with glee and roaming youth’s chasms.

It then streamed relentlessly to the Now.
I polish agates

I

Into art,
Casting myself,

Seeds
Planted
Then nurtured
See how they’ve grown
Into pretty pansies for my garden

How I love to see their smiling faces
In lovely shades
Of purple
Pink and
Red

They
Brighten
My borders
Bringing colour
Especially on wet...

Premium Member ARTIST'S BRUSH


Hands
mixing
neutral shades
as brushstrokes form
etches of life’s vignettes in washed-out tones,
Reflecting grim  shadows doused by night’s  ash
Where black  white hints
Trail along
Fingers
Stained.
Grief
In oil
Expressing
Artist's lament

Winds
raged as 
fires glowed in
small frowzy shacks
that strange Georgia eve an angel was born.

The sky proclaimed that lives would re-arrange;
with Joy’s first cry,
the tempest
changed to
calm.

Premium Member Desired Truth


The
wedding
is supreme
occidental 
mechanism to control other’s body.
When desire tends to be problematic,
to libido
we give the
order
then.
That order is marriage, monogamy,
and faithfulness.
That is the
desired
truth.

-----------Elementary Love----------

Fate
knew best,
as fingers
intertwined souls
weaving…bringing elements together 

A patch of soil, a whisper in the wind
a blackened storm,
wish ablaze--

slumbered seed
nurturing it
making room for it, and letting...

Wrong
Was I
To push love
So un-returned
At first though the love from you came later
I lost mine, rapt in imagination
So time forgot

Blood

lay forlorn, forgotten on battle field 

Screams still ring out as cannons fire

Sam, 
A man,

We judge by the shallow sketches painted;

 In the crimson, pallid, and cobalt dream,
The devil scheme,
A mean plan.

Fall

To catch

With one hand 

Never touch down

Always there waiting, watching, protecting 

Something so much greater than you or I 

Shared hope and faith

Unseen hands

Holding 

You

"She"

Like
one of
these tears that
freed itself from
my misted eyes, you've slipped away from me.
Oh, that once again you'd caress my face
like this tear which
warmly slides
down my
cheek.
