New Poems

Foliage glows midst color-festival
Nature’s marvelous artistry displayed
Green leaves turning orange marks revival
Masterpiece of God wondrously replayed.

Brilliant canopies of golden fortress 
Exude great creation’s iridescence
Cheerfully relieving mountain-trek stress
Along rejuvenating crisp’s incense. 

Offering respite, sometimes nostalgic
With festive environmental dazzle 
Exposing season-enigma’s logic

glowing solar rays expose their celestial commitment
valiantly warming the Earth with bright engagement…

God’s love* prevails with victory
highlighting His Gospel story
redeeming us from hell’s fury
vanquishing sin-caused misery
through Christ’s power at Calvary…
in His mercy’s territory
He conquers guilt-driven worry
while healing our fears’ injury
giving rest to hearts, so weary
assuring us pardon’s glory.

   I'm standing here quietly at the entrance of my soul.

   I can hear, therein, the impassioned sounds that more than twinkle.

   The alluring aroma of wafting incense, both do mingle. More

Beholding genuine freedom in its purest sense

Midst blissful sweet peace, perfectly exemplified

My soul, kindled with praise-filled gratitude’s incense 

Exalts God Whose name deserves to be magnified…

Here am I enthralled by the scenic glorious victory 

As a freed bird atop cross...Read More

Pine Cathedral
Deep in the woods, nearly three miles back,
far from New York with its tall glass and steel,
on a low ridge that has no proper name,
I stumble on something that feels surreal.

An old-growth forest grove, somehow survived
the thirst of furnaces and...Read More

Galleries of life
Galleries of life, ignorant and tough,
Sometimes as sandarac’s incense, usually morose.
I erase bluntness that grew a cravat around my heart,
Abominable inheritance riveted into the soul of farce,
But there is nothing more valued in life than experience,
And there is a bag-full...Read More

Once freed of boring prodigious 
Once freed of all poetic forms.
Once freed of trying to impress
 you with imagery.
Once freed of following all norms.

Then and only then, may I enter the 
mystical temple of poetry.
Then and only then, the incense of me 
rises...Read More

Premium Member THE NEW YORK BELL

The golden bell clangs and a name, is read aloud.
Like human incense, in the shape of a lovely

Many want to forget America's day of infamy.
But to family and friends, each name bears much 
love and eternal dignity.

Machines With Madmen Groaning

Machines with madmen groaning above me at 10 thousand feet,
Grumbling and growling like maniac sky monsters slurping on bloody prey,
Those steel dragons of yore spewing fire and corpses into the excesses,

Fate of rose
The fairest creature I, in the garden of the blossoms,
My scarlet visage overweighs the evil of thorny vesture,
In my dwelling, an unheard hymn the sparrows sing of,
Melodies of praise stacked up like hay in the hayfield,
A charming and so seductive...Read More

The Maze and the Minotaur

In searching for a heart of gold, 
with standards higher than I deserve.
I lost my way.
Lost sight of the truth, what would truly make me happy.
I imagined- the mold, the form she should take and shape it's core. 
The possibility,...Read More

In a place of no world clatter I wish to dwell,
like a gate of withdrawal I secure my door;
I close my windows tight and wish the world farewell,
wrapped and veiled in a serenity I adore.

Dragon Lady
There is a flame
in her painted red mouth.
I'm doused in the gasoline
of self doubt.
Together we make a forest fire
out of a glint on an incense tip.
A slighting remark
turns into a chain argument
spreading fast across town.
The dragon lady and I
meshed in...Read More

Prayer 2

In a dream
I tumbled away
Like dried cremated leaves –
Leaving my body
As the brisk
Morning air
Finally brought me
Tumbling down –
By a cool misting rain.

The sky dimmed
And I slid
Within the 
Incubation of night.

My face
Was caught
In a circle
Of violet-blue lights

As I dressed,
Rather properly,
In...Read More

As we search the river’s source,
It jumps the banks of our twisted past,
Set sail for the uncharted,
The pale flickering of the pole star,
The ever present circle,
Surrounding, unfolding, revealing,
Where mere words find their ending,
My being extols with creation,
As the unseen manifests,

Tenderly, kindle your scented
Or burn some aromatic, heady

If only a few people acknowledge

Why is it so important to you?

Like incense fills the valves
of the chambers of my soul.
Love for life, like a gentle river,
totally flooded me.
Once you came and remained 
my sole bright, coral love atoll.

Everlastingly gleaming in God's
sunlight and moonlight.
Ever lifting me to new insights.
Stunning, velvet blue butterfly,
