New Poems

The concept of you and I 
happily together
is a beautifully woven paradox.

Both a blessing and a curse.
Full of conflicting ideas and loud words
that always transition back to 
soft whispers and gentle fingertips. 

Nonsensical in its entirety,
but worth the effort nonetheless.

Wonderful Sea
Wonderful sea, you gracefully,

send us blue waves, on hot summer days.

Blue like the sky, your waves wave hi.

How kind could you be wonderful sea?

Starfish, dolphins, sharks and whales,

Jellyfish, crabs, the corral reef as well!

You make me smile, all the while.

Dim tunnels curve a segmented ocean.
Bat-winged feeding specters
browse glass. Scaly hulls
blow gas tanks. Rainbow skimmers
flick and soar.

A child’s sweet nose pressed
against a face so horrible,
bubbles of fear pop
in my brain.

Above us, jellyfish swim,
dendritic minds dangling.
tentacles of electric awareness.

Sharks circle waiting...Read More

Strangers and Wives

I wake up with her,
check myself,
eyes creaking like blind stars.
She’s strange, she’s yesterday,
I remember us the week before;
wonder if tomorrow
will fade us both out completely.

We don’t get to know them -
the wives I mean.
Living together we grow
too myopically tangled, and...Read More

Destiny Of The Sea Dragon
Awoken by the sun shining through the ocean surface.
My scales give off a glow.
Good morning to the blue.
A mirror of the sky.
Spiraling endlessly upwards and downwards.
Further and further I go.

Coral labyrinths surround me.
Hiding small lives in themselves.
The growing forest of...Read More

Sea Woes
I chartered a boat for sea fishing
Those waves just kept swelling and swishing
But when the boat stopped
My stomach had flopped
To be back on land I was wishing

To go swim in the sea is so sweet
Though I swim like I'm made...Read More

One little jellyfish swam quite free
Swishing and gurgling capriciously
With the hiccups it seems
Propelling his jet streams
Back and forth simultaneously

Two tiny seahorses swam in place
Gawking at jellyfish face to face
One said "NO!" does he know
There's a shark at his toe
Ready to...Read More

Premium Member Devotion to the Ocean

An ivory pearl rests gently upon her shell;
she feels the ease of the breeze upon water-
ripples of new beginnings are soft when
there’s beauty inside a clam.

The teal and tangerine coral plays with fleeting 
fins, lost in sight as seahorses tenderly...Read More

They threw me off a pirate ship
Into the path of a giant yellow jellyfish.

She had been crying for a bunch of
unsavory fools had thrown her off
another ship

Into the path of rudders that would
not have  been kind.
Luckily a wave came...Read More

Jellyfish sandwiches delicately sliced.
Two or three on a plate, scrumptious and nice.
Eat them with pinkies, raised high and proud.
Please ignore the screaming; they are ridiculously loud.

One day last summer,
In the stagnant July heat,
I was swimming in cool, green, waters.
As the one I loved
Dropped an anchor
From the little boat;
So that he may watch me dance.

My Hands glided
On top of the still bay
Fingertips believing it was made...Read More

Surrounded by holothurians

We plumb the Challenger deep 
In search of Megalodon.

Human Aquarium
A silo water casket scintillates glow 
Green sea-weed blanket, bright red and yellow.
Pebbles and gravel, in a crystalline show.
Fizzing of bubbles the aquatic-air combo.

A vista of motion, flashes a rainbow. 
A bunch of humans thrown, in the confined gizmo.

I am only but dreaming
I am only but dreaming 
I am sinking, 
into the deep,crisp,blue ocean.
I am falling
underneath  the salty ocean.
I don’t want to come up

I like being under; feeling and seeing,
the green seaweed and clear jellyfish pass my feet.

Invertebrate Indecision

When Miss Doubtfire moved in
to their heart,
she entered dragon tail swinging
Plastered smiling walls of bachelor resistance
got knocked down
at every single candlelight date demolition

And as the henpeck frowns

an arthropodic shell of a man
was kinda ready 
to take a...Read More
