Brooding days,
     Vanquished in the unconnected gloom,
            Shower frost,
Standing watch at dawn to pierce the morning
With an artic tempest,
Swirling ‘cross a land lost in forgetfulness:

Blind date with a blind map,
oh Lord, where are my fingers running?
Are they again seeking out your heart?
For your body remains invisible 
on uncharted lands
as your absence taking shape. 
Godspeed with the Hand of Fate,

~Amber silents, daylight violets;
Custom stares;
Love comes here;
I wave you into the Harbor of Halifax.*

Love is where there is caring faith;
Loves committed grace;
A chance we come together;
Sail to the ends of the earth with me.

Writing this love letter, caressing rhymes;

Voyage and death
Oh no!
When a boat departs from the bay,
Floating on the white flowers of the sea foam,
When a tiny bit of the Moon wanders across the oceans,
All coloured in the ash of clouds,
Not even then the rest of your life
Under the...Read More

Practice tenderly the harp
the cistern strings.

Practice methodically,
memorizing the melody.

Practice faithfully
the soothing piece,

the highs and lows
with guts and steel,

the pedals pressed,
the ups and downs
within the frame —

the ascent and descent 
of ministerial angels -
a dreamy Jacob’s ladder.

Practice with elegant gown,
where you...Read More

They hailed her as the empress of the waves
Supreme upon the ocean’s vast domain,
Yet those who watched her launch, and bid ‘Godspeed’,
Could never have foreseen her fleeting reign.

She left Southampton heading for New York;
The sky above was somewhat overcast.
Such hopes...Read More

Prickly cool fills my lungs,

Sloshing the alveoli that branch, internal ...
     Frozen filligree fanning my firkin chest.

My Black Mama

Heaving in the tan of day
The magnanimous light in the glory of racism, cateism and Prejudice 
Her winters shed and her summers are of a shimmering bronze
April blossoms in her grace
The covering of her head is...Read More

Premium Member Take A Leap
Leap into the great unknown;
 Into the well of chance
 It may never materialize again
 It is fleeting, like time

 Actively pursue your passion
 Whatever you love doing
 Chase after that rainbow
 And never look back

Wise is the way
Where joy flings play

True power here
Speeds from good cheer

Look to your soul
To live life whole

Your heart knows more
That earthly stores

Keep mind and heart
In-sync with art

Start to live well
Where feelings dwell

All that now comes
Is what love sums

A pleasant sleep eludes her bed of stars.
Her crumpled sheets in twisted heap aloof.
The restless mind of mirth responds afar —
In moonlight serenade she scales the roof.

Arouse his sunlight glimpse of fleeting gown.
In tempest shines the greenest glow of eyes.

And yet they're not to blame nor is the fault that clearly mine.

Beautiful Thinking
Standing by my window this afternoon
I raise my glass to Venice in parting
Three days at the Venetian Lagoon
Down  Rialto Bridge on a taxi we're riding.

The room boy smiling, " Fiori per te"
I put the fresh bouquet...Read More

Elsa was a tall lovely Swede
Cross-eyed and knock-kneed    
Million-dollar smile all agreed
Flashing her favourite dress made of tweed
A chain at her neck with a simple bead

Loving kindness was her creed
Drenched in thoughtfulness her every deed
The biggest heart...Read More

For twenty two moments, wracking your brain
In the past he would’ve stood still but today matters
Three years in purgatory and I lost my ring.
