Is This Niagara’s Face

Her love does fall,
With all freedom,
She sends her call.

To create such amazing displays
Of honor and trust always.
Her groans of displacement
Sent on there own way,
Never with the sounds of dismay.

Tears of honesty garnish my face
As early morning dew...Read More

Fragile doors         in concrete floors

Curls become swirls
Tiny pigeons peck at your uncertainty
En masse ;

Things that defy description gather up rotten days
Grunt as the washing dries

Every shadow is...Read More

The beginning of an era
Is the assumption of the world
The ending of the chapter
Is the description of the universe

Indulge yourself
Centralise the thoughts
Surround the well being
Conquer the fears

The formulation of a strategy
Is the core value
The application of a knowledge
 Is actually...Read More

I'd greet her with the grin of...Read More

In such melody that outweighs the hearts, 
Bewitching all mouths to move in her art.

Yesterday was NOT like other days, it was special
Spent early morning lakeside watching nature's spectacle
Wildlife before man's intervention
A quiet scene beyond description
Of peace and harmony, life's lofty peak, it's the pinnacle

We've Messed Up
Why do we accept the nonsense like we're all deaf and blind, like the rocks and like the night?

But we sit around,...Read More

Description of An Ice Cream Cone
A small sugar cone

From top to bottom
With a frozen chocolate

Threatening Kobolds
Escaping the prose…

I chose to hear music
over reasons again

To dine with the mystics,
where forever begins

And when forcing my pen
back to stories...Read More
