A Great Mind
deep, humanity, identity, smart,
A great mind is a curse and a blessing,
It is the engineer of furtherment;
Yet, it is loathed by its inheritor.
It begets its host a...
This Time of Year- For Jean Jack
I smiled at you as you sang Christmas song
you stood enthronged by others, bringing cheer
my heart was sad; it thought of all that's wrong
A Personal Death
Although the smell unpleasant to inhale,
the blood no longer dripped from open wounds;
the nurse, accustomed to the sight of death,
remained unmoved as Grandma slipped away:
Like fragranced flowers soon will lose their smell
and colors fade from red to light pastel,
my body, now, will rot awaiting hell
as those I love have...
The Dead and Dying
christian, death, faith, loss,
Disjointed beings beg the questions – still
an ashen horse delivers what is owed.
Decisions kneel before compassion’s will,
to stop and help a turtle cross the road.
It Comes Once
Ordained special event at birth takes place
The soul divine enters the life nascent
Track at journey’s edge death waits to efface
Time of living the two ends...
Mounts of Madamoiselle L'Vampyre

her holy grail, beneath Champs Elysees,
acknowledging no one can come or...
Where It All Goes
grief, husband, loss, marriage,
Cold fate, indifferent bridegroom to the soul
Has torn away with rough hands his wife’s veil
If only for a word that could console
Bright light inside our...
Soliloquy: To Run Honorably, or Not to Run Honorably
To run honorably, or not to run honorably--those are my options:
Whether ‘tis wiser in the main to malign
The lives and motives of my foes
They Never Went To War
death, loss, men, war,
They never went to war; they stayed at home
The young, the old, the unwell and the dead
The women who were not allowed to roam
The Devizing of a Plan
community, england, environment, house,
A personal view of the Devizes Neighbourhood Plan
and the referendum on Thursday at the Town Hall
All careful plans of men may fail and fall
End of Songs
break up, change, conflict,
Another dead statistic dawns today,
Contempt dissolved foundations love astray.
Malicious memories of miscarried mirth,
Repetitious resolving rends rebirth....
The Dove and The Oak
angel, anger, appreciation, betrayal,
Alone I walked, through a chill wind
Upon a dark and dense forest footpath.
Fraught by the tragic loss of a good friend
My heart hardened like...
Park Bench Ghost
allusion, analogy, anger, angst,
Why am I emerging from the dark
Staring at a bench in City Park.
Breathless air without a bird in song.
AN INVITATION DECLINED
The gift that is given is given in vain.
The loss is incurred by having to explain
What the present is and why it is hers
The Death Of Marie Antoinette
art, black african american,
THE DEATH OF MARIE ANTOINETTE
Songwriters set their words about her style
and artists make pursuit to paint her smile
but all the light that's...
adventure, angst, art, black
Absconded from the scene, but dying fast,
to seek a vengeance in a candle flame,
I whisper names...
confusion, death, depression, loss,
The loneliness so silently descends.
My mind is mixed, confused, so wrong the feel
Of death, a loss of one no thing can mend.
The touch is gone:...
death, depression, fear, forgiveness,
I drive across the desert, no plans on where to go,
I drive into the sun; I wish it wasn’t so,
Sorrow in my mind, sorrow in...
