Rose From The Dust


Sixteen sweet springs she had seen come and go,
blooming thousand flowers on her dove eyes,
touching her tender heart with the cadence
of the whispering breeze of juvenile romance.

She had found a friend in the close neighborhood,
and he turned...Read More

Don't Burn My Dreams


Under crisp autumn’s azure sky 
the rustling leaves wind would pass by
with requiem tunes of the fall,
donning burning colors they’d fly.

They’d fly, brush fondly you and me.
Emotions would voice ecstasy
in words of lyric I’d compose
life would sink...Read More

sorrow all way along
Stay forever
in there, till death
cause you don’t have
a choice in heft.

For all the times
being alone in line,
nothing has changed 
and nothing will.

i try to smile,
trouble is the one
who is willing to be by haste.

It is
forever like this,
nothing the way...Read More

Premium Member The Pebble
Millennia ago it started as a rock
that was about the size of a fist.
It got swept to the edge lodging
against two mighty bounders.

Staying there for a century or two
it was finally small enough to escape.
Tumbling down the face of the...Read More

Late Evening Sunshine

Your gentle gestures ... 
soft velvet words
made me open my hard shell
You said you weren’t looking for love,
but you stumbled upon it anyway 
and fell
For so very long, 
I hid within my thoughts
Too afraid to venture out and find
someone who...Read More

Scorpions in the Farm
A farmer stocked in his farm
scorpions to serve him as guards
snakes to give him critical news
black ants to patrol the farmland

Moles he brought as cultivators
locusts to harvest the ripe crops
trusted rats to store the harvests
butterflies to oversee activities

Every creature was...Read More

Since you been gone
By the bank of a meandering stream
underneath the weeping willow tree,
Recall the endearing days of our dream
like the wily wind, whimsical and free.

Then the dark clouds rolled over our sky
In the pouring rains you got swept away,
The shrubs and the...Read More

(Verse 1)
I've been running 
Running to you
But was I really running
To someone who didn't want to pursue 
You said you liked me
You said you cared 
But in my darkest hours 
You were never there 
You just said what I wanted...Read More

Death wore a glamorous mask,
death wore a beautiful dress
Death gave him one night of pleasure,
death gave him an empty sex life full of regret

When he met her, she was the life of the party
Promiscuous and bewitchingly fly
Had men and women...Read More

I struck out on my own around a year old
life was so full of fun, so many things with
which to play, a leaf scuttling by, a rustle
in the undergrowth. I was enthralled.

I stood on a road watching intently
a little mouse....Read More

Premium Member What does it take to be a disciple
Father Christ Jesus listeners often got swept by His charismatic manner
Blurted their intention to follow Him
That does not mean they were ready to be true disciples of Father Christ Jesus
In this Gospel story
A man wanted to follow Father Christ but...Read More

My love
In my dream I met
A young lady in fret
Immediately I had a desire
Like a moth drawn to fire

For she did need a hero though
To save her from life’s woe’s
Such beauty I have never seen
Not even in any other dream

BUT THEN...Read More

Lilies were lifting
white faces up to the sun.

as he leaned down to kiss me. . . 
He - a white knight - was the one.

I am but a tiny sapling
Growing on the side of the mountain
Freshly breaking new ground, hopeful for the warm embrace of the eastern sun
At first I was a seedling that rode from the western winds of a hurricane
My face dripped...Read More
