Abandoned Child
Your walk 
Through the wild urban path 
Under lampposts trees.
In vain you travel questioning 
The meanders of your grief.

The slimy paving 
Of a deserted gallery 
Echoes your steps of suffering 
On the silent columns 
Of a gothic front.

Slow the foot...Read More

The Construct Of Lamppost

The twilight gleam slowly melts
on the verdant expanse of the park,
the pathway lined by neon lampposts
gets deserted as the night silently falls.

Soon I see the maroon moon rise
over the thicket in the speckled sky
and sparkling stars sprout one by one,
I...Read More

Embrace of Monsoon
Winds howling off trees overhead 
in the grim grey sky, blackened stars.
leaves whisper in their rustling tread
excited in an air of summer showers.

embrace of monsoon, clouds rip apart
overturns a bucket of torrential rain
erasing footprints, sun makes a dart
drizzle heals ache,...Read More

How happy can one be?
Ofentimes, I wonder aloud,
Taking advantage of my creative licence.
Let me explain -
The filth I encounter in this city:
Stinking garbage hills along the sidewalks,
Bloody graffiti of betel-nut stains on walls and lampposts,
Jellying lumps of bronchial ejaculations
On carelessly...Read More

My heart aches for those who vanish —
a variety like chocolates, melting
into vanquished existence.

First and farewell - those lucky
who have died, without having
their names besmirched —

the young and old, the hospitable
and the sweet character of a spinning
song,...Read More

Nature Is Rebelling Against Man
Nobody thought what causes the destructive force
of an hurricane in hot summer months, one thing
we can't deny is Nature rebelling against Man;
Harvey is followed by Irma, others will arrive soon.

A fierce wind bending and cracking palm trees
blows away rooftops, traffic...Read More

Cold Hot Spring
floodlights cast an artificial sun on slopes
voices of night skiers hang crystalline on still air
steam rises all around me  
white fire on water 
shrouding the hot spring 
snowflakes ghost across aureoles atop black lampposts
then are swallowed by the night...Read More

My nomadic guy, please don’t tear my flesh
This lonely chamber isn’t made for one
Come play the lead strings as our grooves refresh,
Oh no funky stardust when you are gone…
Sad moon for me and blazing sun for you;
Life’s a-tumble when the...Read More

Eulogy To Amatrice
Euphoric Amatrice once stood proud
among smaller towns below and around, 
it's domineering belltower was tall;
it's clock, sleek and strong, amazed all...
how it fought both weather and time
more than a sentinel keeping an eye. 
August came with a vengeance so horrid,

Bridge streetlamps and long dead stars
Strange bedfellows of the night
Both offering back 
From moon mirrored river
Commingled reflections shimmering
In soft golden light

Small voyage
From green patinated lampposts
To river’s oil slick canvas below
Light conjoined in abandon
From rays of ancient orbs
Of once fiery giants
Now...Read More

The Path Downhill
Wind was chilly,
The path downhill.

Night was still,
Her eyes were filled.

Dim rays of lampposts,
Rays of resilience.

Through the darkness,
They pierced.

Guiding her slowly,
The path downhill....Read More

A Foggy Window
On the cool afternoon of a Fall day,
sunshine is replaced with hail clouds,
then the icy rain begins to fall on grass
making the parched robins fly away.

A foggy window with clear raindrops is like 
thin, sweaty glasses filled with hard ice;

A dream under the Lamppost
lying down under the Lamppost 
looking up counting on stars
its dark lonely midnight,
falling asleep dreamy night
he appears from the shadows,
Misha wonders, , , , , ,
stranger or friend?
he draws nearer
cold breath shaking hands
with a silver chalice.

american girl
my smile so unlike a vagrant
only wanders the backstreets off her heart
leaning on the lampposts of tenderness
while her storybook temptress casual apparel
lures my pervert tendencies ever onward to
the gates of her pearly pink sweetbox
she leans heavy into that come hither...Read More

CHRISTMAS Abecedarian
Amorous is the tingling touch they feel
Blooming kisses as flaming as red bells
Convey passion in their glowing eyes 
Directing fantasy-filled thoughts outside
Enamored by the heavy snowfall on the elms
Farther they vanish into the hushed hills of night
Gorgeous and calm is...Read More

I strut the lane of vagrancy
With breaths choking from evening’s plea,
As lampposts dip across the night
When love undone grates my delight;
Reflecting scenes... a cracked marquee.

Trapped in the void of emptied lea
A begging howls... my cries decree
For sparks to glow, to...Read More

Don't Fall Through The Cracks
When shadows creep on a darkened streets

and the lampposts have gone dim

When trouble lurks around each bend

and life's happy path turns grim

Will I be there to catch you

before you fall on through the cracks

Will I be there to guide you

Dandom Randomness
What else will I see out of my story?
I’ve seen a guy blown away.
Where’s my guinea pig?
In the boarded up pub in the fog.

Your film is so yesterday,
full of sex and violence.
One foot man no boot.

It’s dark when the...Read More

We Walk Together  Hand and Hand

Tightly Holding each other's Heart
For what We Loved

Was a crafty Illusionist 
Orchestrating arrogant notes 

The Lords Lampposts are Endearing 

Angels that Lead Our Course

Appearing Unexpectedly 

Walking with Us till we regain Our footing

Premium Member Snowy Christmas Delight
Crystalline flakes of the snow drifted down,
Created blankets of whiteness that gleam,
Hastily covered old time-weathered earth…
Beautiful vision, so peaceful and clean.

Treetops all glisten with glow from the light
Of lampposts and moonbeams spread over town…
Snow mounds of fluff adorn bushes and...Read More

Sometimes when the night
crawls upon me
I go out
to look at the people
who's faces have
slipped out
of their contours
slid down
to rest
on collars
dripping down
on the
ash grey asphalt
under lonely lampposts
into puddles.

Sleeping Machines
The harbor gave a dim illumination,
lampposts vaguely penetrating the dark water.
As waves like shades of wine drowned the jagged shore of stone,
I watched a fibrous complexion of steel shimmer from the water's edge.

Ships sleep, rocking gently on a resting sea,
machines...Read More
