A spider spun a silver web 
in a mound of golden straw, 
Then he hid himself inside the stack, 
away from the wind so raw. 

He yelled down to the sheep below 
Who were trying...

The Nature of Wisdom
Every flower has its own color
With annual observation,
this we springtime discover

Give a womb kernel cede
of acknowledgment
To the spectrum birthright
of each other

We are all one,
tho’ from a different umbilical mother

Notice the bloom of time,
come rain ...

a song for the spirit of creativity
where will i find her?
i will find her hiding
inside a triangle
humming, bent over
and sewed into
my many great grandmother's
buried, saved
for the hungriest of winters

like a swan passing
white with long leaps
shapeless spirit
who keeps
herded colors
locked inside her
bone tooth...

The sky is clear for far

My pants are old navy and have visible holes 

A lady with a smiley face umbrella enters and a man removes his cap


Only to replace it

When life dominated and things turned wrong,
Conditions bittered and when life pinched,
When I was hit hard by far gone situations,
And conspiracies tumbled down my life,
When life pierced with all its might,
When the loved ones neglected,

Hunting Births
If I were the compassionless sort
without regard for flowing sanctity,
and if hunger more dire than thirst
rocked through me with stings true,
I would think of babies as morsels
of puffy flesh more succulent than
the sinewy knots riddled...

Golden-flecked bliss

stardust bestrewn   

beguiling skies

Possibly you can be delivered today peaceful and true

Eyes stare at me
In a blank pique,
Crying bout frees
A tantrum streak.

You want to sleep
Dear sleepy eyes,
Discomfort peeps
Through weary cries.

You cry and strain
As tears come out,
You say it plain
In breathless shouts.

You mouth sighs pout
In cranky voice,

Sarah, princess,

From your cradle

And all the hope of dawn -
For you rejoice
In every color of the rainbow,
The covenant,
Shining through each storm...

Sympathy a Great Virtue 2
Have you ever eaten an apple
By sitting on a speedy bicycle?
Difficult? Sympathy is like sizzle
Shouts when not got in coddle;
Smiles if given in time subtle.
Shrewd! With poor does giggle
With rich it does struggle.
How can I,...

That become all the more radiant in angel-song.

Into her petals of love
Of that beautiful Rose

To hug and swaddle her 
Of her silky white robes
Of that brilliant moonlight
I became a serene Night

Into people's hearts,long wont to swaddle

From their ethereal,pitiable jail

A mother leaves her babe behind
Newborn in this darkest hour
What she held she cannot find

Brokenhearted complications 
Swollen feet and shattered dreams
Through her tears a fearful question
Who can tell her what it...
