The Machine

A wave kissed the destiny of its shore
a line of fate inscribed
by the depths of the oceans floor
and upon the corals
the turquoise fish light danced
a glinting rainbow sent
from the mountains height
it's peak of clouds the...

Caged magnetic daydreams of lucid migration;

I’ve been there before.  It’s forbidden:

Orchard carved calligraphy crisply cut -
Spiraled surface-scratched immortality 
Dimly azure, aglow on videotape,
Red, blue, green.  Nature’s baby grand.
An organic player-piano ceaseless 
In mellow...

Serenading voices of snow geese thrum in the morning sky
Unrivaled is the clangor of their echoed gabbles in October
Songs of Fall ride on the wind as russet leaves begin to fly
Unrobed are trees; stripped bare,...

Il Pleut

Il Pleut

It rains torrentially
after long drought and disorder;
it rains drenching the empathetic
scraggy soil of the heart
it rains moistening the rocks of anger
crags of revenge and cracks of depravity
it rains covering the jealous holes with purity
healing...

The Man Who Spoke in Whispers
(for Jim Ducker)


The growth plundered your voice,
robbing it of tone; you spoke
in well-articulated whispers, inhaling
through that tube thing in your throat.

You shone, in spite of it all.
No self-pity, even near the end,
after years of speaking...

Senses are aroused as autumn appears
Unwavering in artistry to cheer
Spectacular arrays of shrubs and trees
Unequaled beauty in colourful leaves
Red, gold, yellow and brown tumbling down 
Rustling as the breeze blows them around
Underfoot fallen leaves crunch...

Susurrus of October 2020
Sunshine exudes its warm greetings of love,
Ushers fire trees to spread red carpets on the ground;
Summer breeze welcomes every passer-by,
Unlimited leisure time echoes to take some hours for a drive.
Rainbow crowns the sky once in...

Resurrections  2

Timeless beyond light brought awareness
Breathing by life blood
Destinies womb where souls settle
Diamond snowflakes from above

Shifting susurrus of whispered tryst
The sanctuary of love
Configured identities in Dervish dances
On Astral quivers Plato arrows of heavenly vistas

All Alone
All alone, in the surreal, rayless eventide, gnarly, disheveled hands gouging from the rooted Earth, tongue forever tied. Melancholia echoing through Gods breath, despondency wrenching your azure-splashed jeans, the susurrus of the Devil's proclamation chirping...

Susurrus of October
Scent of petrichor wafts on air for a while,
Under the gray clouds of a volatile sky;
Sunshine and rain crown the sky with rainbow, 
Ushering the balmy breeze’s hugging blows.
Rustling leaves sway to kiss each gentle...

Susurrus songs of delightful dragonflies with flash dances
Through flowering fields with passionate prances
Glowing with sanguine opulence, we glimpse gallant glances
We capture them in conversation in composing literary lace lances 
Mother nature bestows to them...

Susurrus Of October
Spindly limbs are softly sighing,
Undulating in the chilling breeze.
Sunshine dwindling, slow comes the night,
Uncovering hidden mysteries of Harvest old.
Rampant in the glistening dew,
Rise reflections from a crystal moon.
Untimed music rustling in the leaves;
Sunset pandemonium come...

in its perpetual romance,
and most condign, the dancing...

THE LOST PRINCESS
The Lost Princess

I felt his susurrus
Under my feet
The world as I had known it before
Is nullified
Stranger still is 
This feeling of not being quite mortified
Mortem does mean death in my language
Yet the poisonous river
Is the...

Heart yearns for a remedy to help it unwind,
as thoughts drift to forgotten forests of the mind.
Distant visions with hues of a sepia tone,
soul senses tranquil nourishment of being home.

Sweet serene scents feel like a...

It Isn't Arcadia but It's Darker Than Hell
This is where death is the child and I it's Laborious hand holder

Jagged night, lean souls
blackened sight in the martyr moon
crooning crows and brazen ravens tear the skies through

Crooked grins and demon walkers make the...

Bucolic trees seen from

Library
Yes, they're books...
pristine world
in hushed looks 
 
 scent of soundless leather
 glittering rows and rows
 crowded close together.
 unread words gather dust
 archived layers preserve
 worn out pages of trust.

All At Sea
Like a playful cat,the sea purrs in,
Its susurrus soothing us with its softness.
Dappled white,it dances around our feet,
Clutching at our ankles with its sheathed claws.
Some roll over to have their bellies tickled,
Others shrill with delight...

Susurrus
Scene One:

Fingertip touches
under salt sun,
a volunteer hostage,
wrapped in white.
She leans in,
whispers,
“Stay as long as you like,
dead on this wet cedar slab,
feet toward Japan.”

Scene Two:

Writing in shadow,
deep pain alive,
heart on the killing floor,
still beating.
She closes me...

I dream of a place where dancers embrace,
Waltzing together incipient lights,
Music transposed echoed heavenly grace,
Accompanies first harmonious nights;

I dream of lilacs and lavender mist,
Adrift susurrus shoreline’s infinite breeze,
Flowing compassion through time reminisced,
That journeys taken be...
