'Neath the stars...on brisk dark nights

Mind-boggled sights...of Deja-vu

Touching lips...a melt me kiss

It is very beautiful
to watch you sleep.
The bud mouth of infancy poised
to kiss. The swell of your cheek.

The rise and fall
of your chest. That miraculous machine
that keeps the engine of you running.
My son. My dream.

He grieved.
For his child.
Outside storms raged,
water levels rose.
That's where he died.
That's where the child died.

Drowned by the swirling waters
that carried his child away.
The child he loved so much.
Tears ran down his unshaven face,
As utter despair crushed his soul.
His cherished babe...Read More

Childhood

I used to wonder what the world would be like,
I never counted the possibility
That I would see a head on a spike.

As I looked at the world 
I saw an array of opportunities,

TRIMESTERS
This is my true story:

I am a dream
 I flow from the depths of Bliss.
Creating schemes and systems without cognition,
cell by cell, I became a numinous zygote,
I'm wonderfully made!

 I came through a body, a body.

Then, began the inoculations,

DISARRAY
Optimizing freedom zest
Challenging mother’s tidiness best
My son whirls himself around
Oblivious that he’s wheel-chair bound.

Loosening mobility gear
His spastic hands hurl things everywhere
Zooming beyond glee’s ecstasy
He’s waged war against my mess-flee policy.

Entangled around disarray’s coil
My mind screams, devoid of nagging turmoil
Special child...Read More

or evil children whose cold, empty eyes
cast spells on hapless people all around.

When just a child the poet's mom said "Son,

Jesus always will be our Lord and Savior;
Crucified on cross,
And still see moss,
And while child sure was a cute shaver.

Her hands were small, wrinkled
Covered in brown age spots
Encouraging me to keep trying
Even when I was losing

She was nearly ninety 
And I had to trim them
So fearful of cutting her

Her hands were worn, tattered

There is nothing worse than knowing
All the love you have been showing
To your spouse for many years
Could instantly just disappear
From their heart--till nothings left
Because of another theft
Stealing their love far away
Now your regretting the day
Your emotions ran so wild
