I've Never Heard Snow
imagery, seasons, winter,
I've never heard the sound of snow
nor dawning's oboes crooning light,
yet witnessed angels' trumpets blow
and chimings of the flurries grow
as alabastrine wings take flight.

beauty, snow, winter,
The winter’s dismal path is long and gray,
a never-ending march of cheerless dark
with skies whose colors bleach in dull array
where forest scene gives one...
A Loving Son
They always said, “Please bother us no more”
when Tommy sang, and Mom would stick her head
inside his room. “We need to shut your door!”

As morning dourly turns to night
Entombed beneath an ashen snow
A cell phone yearning for hello
With hopes of answer growing...
Still I Run
autumn, death, truth,
I race for summer's setting sun
as crimson bleed the alder leaves
and still I run. And still I run;
my rival, Time, is yet undone.
Date Night (and the day after)
food, lost love, sad,
Opening line from "Highway Five Love Poem" by Ruth L. Schwartz
This is a love poem for all the tomatoes
I squished to make our Date-Night spaghetti.

Chocolate Fountain Abuse- for the lover
How easily I forget I'm allergic to chocolate
I want to dip the exquisite kosher in a Spanish brandy
Darling, you dragged me in too deep
Darling, you dragged me in too deep
And abandoned me like an anchor in a lonely sea.
You shouldn't make promises that you can't keep....
Priorities Viewed by a Dying Man
Death be not proud but humble with strife
Old man flicks ashes, has one last choke
‘Tis nothing to fear, just the nature of life
The Bluest Rose
To one who stands alone my long gaze goes.
How dignified she poses here, and quite
unique and lovely is the bluest rose!
Apart from where one very...
The Green Beneath The Snow
hope, light, nature, seasons,

the hills are growing green beneath the snow
white horses, shake the winter from your manes

In Celtic Shadows: Collaboration with Mike
The shadows lengthen as comes Celtic night,
you are in my arms at the end of day,
my eternal beauty, my guiding light.
We shall be...
Lifeless Eyes of Ted Bundy
Lifeless were the eyes of infamous Ted Bundy
No remorse, all emotion had been doused
His gaze pierced my soul as I gave testimony
He maintained there’d...

A steady hum vibrating one constant low
Surrounding me in tiny hummingbird beats
The two giant fans warm and hot breezes blow

the shimmering snow in magical light,
from winter’s first snow on snug Christmas morn.

Enraptured by musical sounds of the wild,
Where life dwells unhindered and gracefully free.

Birds of Paradise
Birds of paradise bloom and fall like a shooting star,
Red ones are juxtaposing lips when wrens are kissing;
Brilliantly gliding from huge foliage seen from afar.
I think destiny, fate, choice are always mingling,
My life has been written, the present, future, past;
Oh, the past of my life- I am ever...
Eyes dazed I stroll and quiver low, enticed
In liquid skyline’s twirl, a slow ballet
to pirouette on fireglows that ignite.
The meadow gleaming near as winds...
Ageless and amazingly, the nerves sing,
butterflies flutter within the begin
like the bowed tension of a cello’s string.
Let the trailing flow of sweet kisses sting.
My Smile Is Only A Mirage
hurt, loneliness, loss, pain,
I laugh but I want to cry
My heart is in so much pain

I can still see you at the end
Our song often left wounds to mend
