A rose poem
A walking cobbler came to Yasmin valley
That had a small brook with swimming ducks
Even though, since everyone wore clogs 
He decided to settle down in this pleasant vale

The cobbler was educated in Frankfurt and

blue dress
Burgundy shades daub my dearly-bought garb
Lengths of silk, waist-gathered with a tassel:
umbilical tie to calico beau…
Embellished neckline of precious turquoise.

Dollops of lace, round the hips, drape mangled
Raggedly dangling like a worn flower…
Edging the hem’s rolled velvet, midnight blue.
Sinuously, along the...Read More

Where Were You
Where Were You?

Where were you
when my world 
had collapsed?
Where were you
when my world
was frozen cold?
Where were you
when my world
was flood-stricken?
Where were you
when my world
was lightning-struck?
Where were you
when my world
was ravaged?
Where were you?

Now you come
when all is

If we examine now
What we are doing
And find we are not free..
We must then 
Put the doing aside
Perhaps only briefly
And be the observer
Of the doing..
Then the observer
Absorbs the doing..
No observer..No doing
Just what is happening.. 
And we notice freedom
Making reentry......Read More

At a Postcard Show

Capitalism in action!  
Picked up some nice cards

Gave me a break on the price 
Another collector at the show

when love is not
When love is not
A man meets a woman
And thinks she loves him in return
The kissing
the hand holding is the same
but something, something is wrong
after making love, she turns her back
away from him, not speaking.
He fell sadness and emptiness after

Beginning of Men
It was the last day of the beginning of the end.

You are The One
And divisions in Your Name,

Human story
When guns become toys 
And innocence stolen,
When violence is a big joy
And kindness forgotten, 
The tears will be very warm.

When money controls minds 
No charity and no mercy, 
When souls become blind 
Not feeling Eternity, 
The prayers will be very...Read More

They say Have Faith
But do they really know
Have they seen the light before
Have they seen for sure
I try to believe
But what’s left is we’re alone
Sombrely living 
And forever black clouds hang over
Even when it’s such a sign
Inability to cope sans...Read More

The kiss

her lips had kissed many a man a butterfly
Fragrant and vivid like a spring day in May 
Yet not to the point of pollination.
 She waited for a kiss that tasted of wealth
She dreamed of a castle and ballgown...Read More

Dark Soul
The beauty of a sunset, she had
Clothed in burning scarlet velvet
Stories of her ghost the silent streets
Children feared her,
She got razing screams, mental
Her hands withered life away
Her horse walk drawn men, dead
Alive, they laughed her
She swallowed their joys, sorrow
Black energy...Read More

Real life always flows in
Covering the pictures stoked in the sand
Joyful fleeting thoughts
Faces and messages
Knowing but hoping no wave will come.

Sometimes just 10 minutes of closeness and calm
Often not enough to reach the school gate
No stage setting or plans can...Read More

And no police sirens have been cutting the night
Till before and after sleep.

The humanity intrigues...Read More

and then defends its falsehood for all to hear and believe in

Different from TV but funnier.

Some ladies sing mournful songs.

But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought
A glass stands upon a table, 
Watched by arbiters of existential
They observe the glass, to give opinion
As to its contents.

The Pessimist speaks: “There is wine
In the glass, and it is half empty”.
The Optimist, with shake of head
And wave of hand,...Read More

Idle sit the swords in bloodied rust
old glories faded in the long dull blades
lie about cold beauty's savage lives
masked within the scars of victors songs.

Words unbent repent in ploughshare shame
succumb to acquiescent mumbling
rising in the throat of strangled steel

A joke you didn’t appreciate.
