My mango and banyan made for the shoreline
and found the vagabond truths so unrefined
New ways to live in the harsh scalding of salt
gravely dug where rivers cast slough of sad malt
Roots grappling dregs of mud-rich detritus
offering alms to canopy’s incubus
christmas, day, death, drink, giving, political,
Christmas is always a busy time of year,
More traffic on the roads, as the Day draws near,
Shopping to be done, last-minute gifts to choose,
Searching for that something you think will amuse,
In an atmosphere that is optimistic,
No one expects to be...Read More
Double J - just jetsam
Marred and minced remnants pile high in a storm’s swarm
Yesterdays, hardened-soft, surface where sea’s warm…
Flotsam found, lays tales around, in frayed traces

beautiful, car, death, farewell, innocence, rose,
Diana, our beloved princess, has been killed,
The blood of "the people's princess" too cruelly spilled,

My God Is Love
Are we mystical beings? the child asked me.
Theological question given to thee.
How do I answer? I have nothing to hide.
My true response lies deeply way down inside.

Truth is clear and One, but the veils of belief
hide outward constructs causing spiritual grief.
