Who’s that cow standing in the way

Moo-ove, Moo-ove

No, that’s a donkey,listen how he brays

Hee-haw, Hee-haw

I’m not the kinda person to be hurdling insults

"But that's a crazy monkey with a blabbering mouth"


Who’s that dog with the toothpaste teeth

Bow-Wow, Bow-Wow

Picture Prompt Poetry Contest Brenda Chiri
I love you to the moon and back

Stuck in lover's purgatory

A picture of a thousand kisses

Kept inside thy wallet

Or on a mantle piece

In broken frame

Underneath a waxing moon

Where werewolves howl

And the tides come in and out

That star crossed lover's never...Read More

I

From thirsting shoots, the timelines grew
to stubborn stems that clasped the strings
of magnetism, space, decay
and gravity. The paths they knew
were constant, straight; they stretched away,
unbreakable yet formless things 
defying turmoil’s beckonings,
each one with its own tale to tell -
alternative, yet...Read More

‘All you need is time?’
What a despicable lie! 
‘Just let it all go.’
Ok, then snuff my heartbeat 
You are the air that I breathe.

Believe in magic;
Elevated energy; 
Sparks and shooting stars; 
The power of forever?

Sonnet 61 'There Is a Desperate Bent In Men Who Lose'
There is a desperate bent in Men who lose,
A silent howl that seeks the lie to prove,
That She Loved Him, who otherwise did choose,
And shunned him! Seek with teaspoon seas to move,
And you, my friend, my silent fool, my boy

Single-mindedness

Not long ago
He stood at the window,
Briefly leaned against the wall
Listened to the howl of the wind  
That disturbed the night
Without respite.
Why does the wind shriek?
He had asked.
He did not know 
About the pain, it suffered 
While moving through

The High Night of the Dark Wind

Dancing fairies on the lake of ice, 
leaving no marks as they pass. 
The tiny birds, chase them...
not to eat, but to join them, 
laughing and chirping together.

The trees are heavy with snow. 
Thick...Read More

I watched the day
 it came in just after morning light on the bay
 eerily dark and spectacular gray;
how wild and restless blew the northeast winds
 each a howl upon the trees up down unhinged,
 racing hurriedly out to the...Read More

Stair to Heaven

A spiral stair comes in pieces. 
About one thousand to be sure. 
It is a very large box indeed, 
and weighs about 400 pounds. 

Do not tell the man accidentally;
to put it in the wrong place. 
You will...Read More

Manger Shadow

A shadow lurks behind the manger bed
 Swaddled by indifference,
  Creeping behind
 Lowing cows 
And 
Bleating sheep,
Power without power raising up a hoary head
 While in vanity dim shades attempt to weave
  A gloomy thread into the...Read More

The breeze blows icy arrows, piercing flesh
The pale sun's rays enfeeble yearning hearts
Commuters scurry, hats in scarves enmeshed

At downtown throngs that empty out at five
But first a drink to...Read More

For a string of warm, sunny days

Long Lost Love
Moonlight glistens off the fallen snow
Like little stars in the valley below
Owl calls across this desolate site
No answer returns on this lonesome night

Hoping for a clandestine rendezvous
The wind sings in the pines above

The Stage
The desert sands blow soft and warm
As wispy clouds begin to swarm.
I watch the skies for signs of rain
To ready for a springtime storm.

My love is on an eastbound train.

Even if yours truly could repeat every grade
Even if yours truly could repeat every grade...

Without fail, I would flunk preschool
farcical scenario aside
truthfully, metaphorically, emphatically
resigned to life as replayed

forced to spend existence locked

dragon filled dungeon paid

existential dues many times over

My Bleating Heart
Modern day scoffers say,
only the strong will survive
That the weak will be eaten alive

Forgiveness is viewed as fleece clothing
