Poetry on a Lower East Side Morning
Awakening from "Slavery in Egypt"
I head downstairs to check my e - mail 
and eat a free breakfast 
My stomach satisfied 
I pick up a pen and write an ode 
Poetry grows on the fabled Lower East Side 
Where my...Read More

There is a solace in his silence, a servant of his solitudes,
As he comforts in compliance, a jester to the multitudes…
He stands alone a neophyte, struggling within his confines,
Actions that do excite, impugnable inhibition when he signs.

Giving life to the Fern, the Laurel and the Pine
The rocks and the rapids share a fast dance
Over Rainbow Trout twirled in Spring's romance
The river bellows its mighty roar

A tale of two poets who fell madly in love,
it had to end because the path of love was too tough.

The splayed light of an obliging red sunset
lays upon the darkening meadow
of windswept grass

Slow-moving fingers in a visible dance
wrap in quiet space
when moonlight, silhouettes our hands
as they bond

A falling star etches the night sky
burning its canvas like a struck match

Three Greenbacks
There's three greenbacks in my pocket
Most I have had was ten
This cowboy's life don't make you rich
The green is pretty thin

An' that's the whole dang pot -
Then ride to town and have a...Read More

On the doleful prospect of devoting an ode to a screwdriver

Vague words lead poets to heady heights far yonder
If we, like Wordsworth,   seek a path to’ wander.’
But words there are whose power is less prolific,
Dwindling  fast the more they are specific. 
Sententious and meaningful are rhymes
Which great...Read More

Viewing, Revisited
Thinly lined eyelids seal the window to his soul.
His cheeks sink in, countenance concealed and dull.
His still lips wrinkle down to a frown, without tone.
With undoing infirmity, his breath has turned to stone.
Feeble flesh has overtaken the strength that he...Read More

Ode to a Spring Garden

Primrose will thrive in the shade of a tree,
bluebell will happily rise through the foliage of bleeding hearts;
and blooming tulips will grow between clumps of lilies in the sun,
in a garden of pleasure extravagant and fragrant.

Steaming citruses bathe the air in soft crystals

Elemental, the touch, comes, in needles...Read More

Are in a state of a perpetual flux.
