Juggernaut Categories: joy, smile, Form: Kimo
When I read the wiki's definition
of juggernaut* as a fierce
and ruthless force, I shrug.
When I see the face of Jagannatha,
full of eyes, smiling at me,
I cannot but smile back.
When I think about his younger sister,
lovely Subhadra, I sigh
like a snake...Read More

chaos elements of normality
insects buzzing in lamp dome
reveals alluring mouths
he breathes out a photographic desire
the contact lenses pops out
caught in pink mesh stockings
black curls colored bluish by the sunlight
like the children's drawn doodles
no shiny surfaces

CRACKS IN THE FACADE Categories: character, christian, faith, god, integrity, spiritual, truth, Form: Kimo
Standing tenaciously despite strong quakes
fortress of hope projects bliss
succouring the needy.
Buttressed steadfastly by God’s grace and truth*
anchoring the wavering
faith ascends midst good works…
...Yet when lurking haughtiness grips the heart
unveiling facade’s cracks.
*John 1:17 …Grace and truth...Read More
Cracks In The Facade Categories: image, pain, sad, Form: Kimo
Bright ,cheerful,jovial is his visage
You sense a fragile sadness
Belied by his soft smile
In quieter mood his face relaxes
Worry lines fragment his calm
Tears threaten like raindrops
The pent up dam now bursts,his bulwark gone
Broken,beaten and bereft
A sad shell of...Read More
UNDERCURRENT OF MELANCHOLY Categories: bereavement, life, Form: Kimo
Her husband passed away so suddenly
she pastes a smile on her face ...

Cracks In The Facade Categories: romantic, Form: Kimo
I first saw her face framed by Spanish moss
Beneath the oaks of Georgia -
Beauty beyond compare
Her golden hair crowned the deepest blue eyes
That stared beyond my presence -
Her lips frozen and cold
Fascinated I continued to stare
Her eyes at last...Read More
To The Ends Of The Earth Categories: earth, fish, men, sea, Form: Kimo
What if you went to the ends of the earth,
And did not like what you found?
Would it be worth your time?
Mystique may be a mistake,
That fellow you followed may be a fake,
Blinding you with his charm.
Why bother chasing him -
Undercurrent of Melancholy Categories: solitude, Form: Kimo
disconsolate flow of cascading woe
resonates in my aura-
for I am despondent
implicated in melancholic fears;
visceral scars, my zenith-
mediocre ways of my days somber,
feeding the grimace pain wears-

A Gnawing Temptation Categories: boyfriend, crush, dream, love, lust, romantic love, Form: Kimo
His eyes still make me think of the sunrise
That color blue like sapphire
Hypnotizing my mind
He reminds me of kisses long and soft
tender caring in a heart
filling up my spirit
He makes me want to touch him once again
sensations thrive inside
Market Day Categories: bird, children, food, money, peace, red, Form: Kimo
It is village Market Day,
Lots of wares on display,
Folks milling about with money to pay.
Fresh vegetables and fruit,
Anything that may suit,
And somewhere someone is playing a flute.
Jam and preserve stalls as well,
Whose presence one can tell
By the delicious emanating smell.
The End Of A Day Categories: day, farewell, imagery, night, Form: Kimo
Darkness falls; precious moments fade to black
as sleep shuts my weary eyes.
The end of the day nigh.
My wants, needs and expectations all rest
snuggly beneath my pillow...
where they'll peacefully sleep.
So goodnight, moon, and all the stars that shine.
So long to all...Read More

Spring Fancy Categories: animal, flower, november, seasons, Form: Kimo
As the year approaches spring,
All nature's joys will be on offering,
Wild flowers blossoming,
And soon the season will bring
The usual big fling
On the day of Cup racing.
This year I plan to back a new young thing
That is grey in colouring:
I fancy...Read More

Seven City Pigeons Categories: bird, snow, Form: Kimo
Seven pigeons sitting cold in the snow,
upon a street sign trembling;
and the snow is falling.
As if on cue they fly on snowy wings,
circling the city buildings;
till a safe ledge is found.
Beautiful they smooth their heavy feathers,
sitting quiet in the cold;

My Lady Categories: bird, dark, hair, image, life, Form: Kimo
When my lady smiles at me
My heart becomes a thing of ecstasy
For all around to see.

As she strolls out on my arm.

My lady's eyes are blue,
Sparkling sapphires to...Read More

Faithful oak blessed rays anoint.
