Premium Member Whose woods are these
Whose woods these are I think I know.
They come not from the village though;
Since ancient times they’ve inhabited here
Vouchsafed the land through fire and snow.

The other settlers think it queer
To stop a pipe where no town’s near
Between the mountains, sea...Read More

Country Church Nestled in the Wilderness

A country church nestled in a peaceful valley,
Against a glorious backdrop of tall mountains,
That were fashioned before Eden’s retched  malady,
That beset the human soul and rich surroundings.

Beautiful dog-wood trees with blossoms snowy white,
Bounded by rocks as old as the...Read More

O beings of flesh and blood
O' beings of flesh and blood, 
Behold thy breaths! 
For I am sent to put an end
To your infinite cruelties and untamed lusts! 

What have you done to Earth! 
What have you done to hearts! 
You ruined the buds
You murdered...Read More

Far, Yet So Close
Verse 1:
When the sun peaks from the mountains,
It peaks from my windowpane of pain
I can feel the rain as it goes oh so insane
I am crying, crying, crying many fountains
Trying, trying, trying to find where you been

I climb high up the tortuous path
Of a ragged hillock and 
In pensive solitude I look around
Upon the universe that surround me.
There from on high
I spy so many mysterious wonders
That God endowed this worthy earth,
And blessed all His creations

My Plight

Fair enough,
Step out in the sun if you must;
Keep your head covered with a wet cloth.
The heat of the Indian Summer
Can be extreme, very exhausting,
Worse than the desert heat, you can say,
A person often loses his wits and brain.
For many...Read More

drained by seven withering storms
dessert cactus and prickly thorns
littered was the winding road
that charted highways à la mode  

painted strokes of pastel hues
streaming waves of flowing blues
mountains rose that blocked the sky
eclipse when worlds defy

Below the edge of the storm, a quietness,
a silence is shaken from the trees,
from the shingles, 
from the long ears of field rabbits.

There is rain in the air, a downpour not yet arrived,
it is only a rumor a hush beyond...Read More

Ode to a toilet on a mountaintop
I climbed a mountain in a land of sun
Of epic landscape and of sweet cuisine
But scarecely had my lone ascent begun
Than woke a silent urge for a latrine

Too long must I have lingered at the wide
And bounteous smorgasbord in the...Read More

He never once mentioned the pressure of his blood

or his younger brother
not once, during the best years of my life

he fixed cars
with a pipe slowly smoking

a magician with gauges and valves

The gentle breath
Of sleeping giants
Sweetly murmur
In soothing rhythm
Calm and enticing
A soft tremble in the valley
A false sense of security
An illusion most welcome
Hours of peace to soothe the heart
Maybe temporary but
It appeases the nervous souls
Forests on steep mountain slopes
Tremble in their...Read More

Catch A Feeling

Sitting alone, watching the night
Soaking in the last few minutes of daylight
On the roof, among the trees 
My skin tickled by a warm light breeze

Little boy with eyes of

Hands lifted to trace trails
in imagined aether.

Climbing, climbing, climbing,

bringing forth mammoth birds
of titanium and steel.

His dreams haunted by man-made wings, 
bearing him upward, ever upward.

the low, rolling hills,
