your skin,
soft as breath,
radiating a warmth too
soothing to understand-
your hands,
strong as ore,
cascading safety as I often
roam the shores of mishap

a fever races, my passion embraces,
chills down my spine thanking God
my love, you soar...

Ask yourself who amongst you really cares

Life was cheap to every child that lost a life

white frost streaks her hair
smooth ice-sculpture skin of youth

it just passes it on to someone else"


weeping from loss I emptied the ocean,
remembering each emotion
     abandoned by devotion-
sights unseen by nude eyes shine,
forgetting your dear heart...

When a painter paints a picture
He must have a clear intent
For a snapshot just of nature
Has small chance of paying rent

So he adds some extra features
Meant to give Nature a hand
And removes what he...

The miscellaneous poems
You stare my profound eyes,
i have no word to say,
Beautifying this night 


Getting used to be hurted by your silence,
Risking my life to pursue your smile.
Eagles flew over my gloomy sky,
Each scene was so familiar.

i danced in bubbling innocence,
but shrouded with tainted boundaries-
no more simplicity
without redemption;
my soul complicity,
my essence like dying memories

i strike a fever like waves of lightning,
the storm never ceases
even in autumn breezes
i find this affair of...

(Dedication: For Regina Riddle)

Tree caterpillar crawling
Strong windy debris;
Blown over the bough


Violet blossoms
Vine decorations dancing;
Sun and breeze move


Joy wears a face:
Your smiles highlight;
Dazzle of morning


Hasty scribblings
Poetry in motion;
Grassy blooms unnoticed


Rose garden memories
Touch of rapture;
Thorny issues exfoliate
