From newborn eyes lunacy hides
A foetus far beyond sight and tightly curled 
Too distant to be blurred or even supposition 
Compressed into angular corners of mere possibility 
Sleeping as babies sleep 
To the right and left of weeping 
Waiting only...Read More

I can still smell the scent of pickling spice drifting through the house-

a pickle is just a cucumber, whether it is a cuke, spear, or coin
in a brine of white vinegar, water, spices and pickling salt

What do you think 2020 will bring -
Will it change anything,
What new clouds are gathering?

It is very unlikely, I should think,
Given the alcohol link,
That there will be less drink

Consumed on New Year's Eve,
Since so many obviously believe
That one must drink...Read More

Come my love past the beauty of the hill
Ablaze with ginger sunset and fall fire
On a fast downhill wagon hayride thrill
In festive saffron and amber attire
Celebrating with tambourine and lyre
Autumn’s gift of new harvest abundance
With an improvised Abu Barn floor...Read More

The swell is rising, 
furrowing the brow of seascape,
forewarning of storm arising.
Sheer bliss for surfers,
toil and trouble incising
ferment and foreboding 
on sailor's foreheads, glistening,
with the spray and froth flung
from wave-top manes breaking, 
off from white horses on the bay prancing.

Oh, God!

You sent your messengers on canvass wings...Read More

Restore Life 1
Why do you stand to stare, old man,
Over these fields of grass,
It must be a terrible boring time,
There's nothing here to see.

No, nothing now, but I look with inward eye,
For twenty thousand years did pass
Since I meditated upon this place.

if folly is foolish enough 
why not fall in
let fecund flatulence
form a fissure

to firmly fit in
foment a fued

and fuel the future with fear

friends and flapping fiends
flailing in fallow fields

For quality a wine depends,
In part, upon its parent grapes.
But vintner’s art and loving care
Plain grapes may make a vintage prime.

And neglect produces vinegar
More often than does paltry fruit,
Which wants for the proper sweetness
To produce rare or noble wine.

His demons come at night.
Creep up on him at his low.
Horrifying moans an screams to tow.
At what I fear to know.
They torment him,
Ferment him.
In his nightly slumber.
He’s more at peace in the waking hours.
Before the bottle, cause’s him to topple.

Strength, Depth and Faith In your Every Cell

Determined Distaste

Blown in the undesirable direction
That irks initiatives to draw the cream that floats on the rim
Where your life suffers from offers of misdirection

Meant to frustrate rates at which sanity cleans cobwebs

A pool of red ink with a bitter scent.
Youthful laughter through a pert lilac field.
Those lowdown branches of soulful lament

To Bask In Unanswered Questions
To ask
Why for temporary pleasure we cry
As if that were our main lives’ task
When our bones and muscles die 

When complex answers to our questions lie somewhere else
Far and near, unclear and clear
If only our hearts and eyes could reverse

Knobs and Knots of Opportunity
Opportunity hobnobs with doors
That open when it knocks
Bypassing entrances
That dither watching clocks, counting spokes

Enabling opportunity to hobnob with eyes
Primed to spot the oncoming opportunity march
In dainty pies and blue skies
Swirling, welcoming the opportunity touch

Eager to proceed to new destinations
Where pates...Read More

Salvation For Loose Tongues Granted
Snakes in loose tongues
Proclaim one message, doing the opposite
When lie bangs and sty clangs
Identify and typify the hypocrite

Who declares faith in one moment
Swims in seas of sin
Inviting the ferment of torment
The hypocrite in his din

Can’t shove away
Despite claims to sainthood
That...Read More

The fallow ground was thirsty for her —
“I’m in trouble” stung like a nightingale’s knife.
The moon and stars in vertiginous blur
stilled her mothering heart — her life.

frère dans ta chaise
c'est moi qui t'embrasse 

When I die
I wont say goodbye

If you die
I shall cry
Shall we both die?

Flowers will bloom though
Père Lachaise knows why
When death dances
We all shall cry
