As her chastity behind hidden bushes shatters

For the Haven’s advancement,
the Elite may extend a courteous backhand,
or a fist wrapped with opinion
that some may mistake for abuse.

Dante’s girl fell from her steeple
head first into a cauldron of pride,
now her feeble corpse twitches
trying to vomit the blackest pitch...Read More

playing face up, each and every card?

The lowest mountain in the Sinai
  a mountain cloaked in humility

Genesis One
Genesis One

In the beginning God
First words in Genesis
Created Heaven and earth
A perfect work was this.

“Let there be light,” He said,
And darkness fled away.
So God created day and night
And that was the first day.

Then on the second day
The waters did divide

And finished about nine thirty; the sky was still bright
Took a short cut through woods at the edge of town
Was looking forward to a hot shower and a lie down.

Every evening new experiences

Does Anybody Care
Indubitably deepening gazes keep daunting with his strides,
Farther, deeper struck am I, beside the citylights it lies;
Knowing not, what wrong was done, born as a girl, all alone,
To snatch my chastity, keeps me hither he, abandoned gazes alone shown;

What good charities lie in men unsung
Who fortune smiled on loud and long?

Quiet do some share their wealth ‘til done
To help the poorest of us get along.

Wish I as they were, as they humbly are
Quiet charity lessons unselfish given.

The sun came out but hid its heat;
While the wind remained at rest,
The chill kept moving about.

The array of trees—leafless
And leafy—stood as still as death;
Little children played mid-winter games.

Two old men sat at a park table;
Seriously they played their chess...Read More

Slowly shifting winds of time
Blow through the outstretched arms

To set the steel bound soul of Everyman,
Within the rising towers
Dotting the dreamscape
With visionary signature –
The line of hope to take from Time
Its darkness and...Read More
