I am writing letters home,
And will enclose in each a poem.
Here is my selection
For my verse connection.

I think for Maybelline
My best Alexandrine,

Premium Member An Absinthe Eventide

I sauntered in an evening mist
   A midnight's heaven, magic-kissed
      Lamp-lit raindrops pattered, awesome
         Shining city turned violet blossom

Premium Member The Dogwood
The blood and lapis daylight sets
in ether. How the mind resets
brutality of winter chill
with February's codicil;
what gossamer a dream begets.

I hear the crickets in the dark,
their clicking takes up where the lark
has been. The flagrant...

To My Seductress Duchess
These, cacophony that beggars descriptions

Disorder from indecent breed incubating, 

Confusion of morals, the imposition of strange culture, 

Filthily dressed to undress my mind,

These promiscuous pastors parading piety...

A forgetful hat
A morning it was shining red,
And mister president's black hat,
Was siting on his solemn hair,
As it was not at all aware,
That it's a hat of a fat rat.

By using crown to form its speech,
»Good morning!«...

I Fell in Love With a Tree Stump
I fell in love with a tree stump.
A quite curious stump was he.
No branches to thump.
No fall leaves to see.
But a very special stump was he.

There in the woods, other trees grew tall.
Swaying their limbs...

Along diverging paths, I often see my way through

A stealthy tiger stalks his prey
His eyes alight with cunning gleam;
And tho' the world may peaceful seem
The lissome springboks graze and play --
The danger lurks, not far away

He crouches low, his muscles taught
While calculations...

My body stirs from its cozy slumber, begone
Aloft to the mountains volcanized hard crest
Dark clouds beat upon its jagged green breast
Then raindrops fall down in a long mighty yawn

Not with sticks and stones; but words indeed
That you let obscure your friends in need
Who sing release when you let hatred go.

We Are The Brightest Stars Among All Gods Creations:Answer Me

And wheeze through the freedom of the open skies

Is like a hypnotizing charm of a born magician

I am wide awake over the Earth’s blanket of grass

As early chill in night time breeze caress
and cool to adorn with colored hue,

Slowly the leaves float down.
They do their dance...
