autumn, color, nature,
Majestic autumn welcome home,
As summer yields to slumber,
To flaunt your leafy vibrant hues,
Of yellow, gold and umber.
From whence do all your colours come,
That paint your wondrous scenes,
Do fairies brush from pots of gold,
And daub the...Read More
On the Transmigration of Souls
"On the Transmigration of Souls"
to remind us
John Adams - On the Transmigration of Souls (2002) [Audio + Score]
Ode to Metaphors
Here’s a twain of siblings so delicate—
The tenor and its weary vehicle,
Similar are, nor yet so disparate
O lady, art not thou so fickle?
In seeming sameness struts lady contrast,
Harmony jars to sing in unsure...Read More
Ode to Broker
I grope gossips
and chamois if chargrin
and sense like there is forlorn
and there is gruff and chide
oh! if love be a centre
of human life and existence
why call for cracks and grudges?
why profane like a night waves?
appreciation, day, nature, religious,
As early dawn, slow breaking o’er the beach,
Paints the pale blue background of the sky
In watercolor streaks of rose and peach,
A feast God spreads for those with sleepy eye
Who needs must rise to start their...Read More
Ode to peccability
When earth is dearly smiling
thee put doubtfulness to our joys
chattering humanity then and now
a memory of thee could have
visited moon tomorrow
it is possible to remember it, the wild
even when state hid her
despair, that is filling...Read More
allegory, beautiful, beauty, christian,
Not from glitzy stars do I perfection espy,
Nor Moon's struttings so wondrous deem;
Your unfeigned pulchritude's glittering eye
Illumines every dark labyrinth of my heart.
Though Sun's poses such lustrous gleams
Upon haughty crags her gaudy rays...Read More
Ode to Tina
It is a tale of love
concerning an event
of a story once
upon a time beholden
nature as it is
couldn't resist such a mystery
the forests, rivers moon and mountains
were resonating to consternations
of which site once upon found
if it...Read More

A Time of Rebirth
analogy, appreciation, caregiving, flower,
"That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and
that which is born of the Spirit is spirit."
– John 3:6 (KJV)
In the thin early April mist, she went
Planting the seeds of...Read More
allegory, allusion, best friend,
Each passing second your Love
Etches its seal on eternal slates,
Proving fleeting affections drear,
Yielding warmth that never sates.
Infinitely warmer and soothing more,
It trounces fickle throbs of mortal kiss,
Eclipsing legends' amours of nymphs
An ode to Carolyn Helen Devonshire
appreciation, bereavement, bible, blessing,
Though from this world she decided it was time to retire,
Her words will continue to inspire,
Even where there is no church spire.
And around the world others will never tire,
Of words of wisdom, from this Devonshire,
Ode to De words
There was a time when words were derived,
not slovenly crafted with prefixes.
When drain meant to let the water out.
When cast from window, meant to throw it out.
That was before the arrival of de- words
De-water means...Read More
Ode to the dark tempest
Oh!, thee temperamental fantasy!
no venture, since when I cannot walk
nor life is a tale so to appear
oh!, put off thy fiery that now
may storm and stream these corners
that to thee I borrowed no...Read More
I once knew of a earth,
that was greener than grass,
that was as beautiful as the lily of the valley,

When I did saw that earth,
I was mesmerized by its beauty,
for it...Read More
