As I walk in the fall sunshine, I feel my strength come back
It has been a rough few years, surviving what I lack
Many things not working and the stress was very high
But, I kept on going and I always continued...Read More

Bluebonnets and IV's
Statuesque.
Cradling mortality.
Watching drywall become 
constellations.

Bluebonnet fields
taller than he's ever seen
the wind makes them all dance
~
Sterile conversations 
Latex gloves snapping in unison
Clapping for the waking dreamer
"He's not out of the woods, yet"
~ 
Voices intermingled 
Rushed movements 
Erratic beeps.
"Steady" 
Crimson trickles...Read More

The eager rapt fervidness of my intense determination to meet my

Into the woods
Into the woods crawled the brave wise men
Where the cannons boomed again and again
Screams and shouts as the shots did fly
And the trees thought they would die

Out of the woods crawled the brave wise men
Out of a thousand remained just...Read More

LUTHIER



His life path to music starts in the Caucasus forest
From his window is seen nothing but light woodland.
His bushy uncombed hair like the trees themselves,
As if he had grown out of the woods.

His workshop fingers sawing is music
Showing a soul,...Read More

Premium Member What The Female Reindeer Said When She Walked Out Of The Woods
I once, went hunting...for mallard ducks 
I got skunked, said- "boy, this really sucks" 
I over heard a reindeer
Say to herself- "I do swear" 
It's the last time, I do that...for two Bucks

Premium Member HOPE REFRESHES-- BEST TITLES


Lonely is this night,
grasping what’s here and now
 as nightwalk grows bleak…
crushed weeds,
skeletal trees :
lamp posts
cry not for me,
while buds drift
tripping the light. 

And as I pray,
Cold is the gush
like dying leaves
like terminal stone
where frozen embers still burn;
to whisper mildly
unspoken...Read More

Car Ride, Oxford, 2011

It's been raining long enough that I could not tell when day faded and night entered.
But there are too many other things to notice: a dim glow that
waxes and wanes as we turn,
translucent lines on the window...Read More

Life Journey
Life is but a journey far
A bumpy road, many doors ajar
Twisting turns, ups and downs
We run around like frantic clowns

Love it or hate it, pass each day
Speeding thoughts that come our way
Working hard, treading water
For us a son or a...Read More

A long, long time ago, three children met
this old, gentle lady in an ancient farm,
bidding them to enter her large  kitchen
with a sweet flavor of gingerbread and ale...
Beside her , a  huge, dark rabbit jeered

Wandering in life as if it is the deep woods
No answers to be found
No route laid out to take

The common perception says, it’s the strong
It could be a majority or those in power
Or a well armed group can make you cower

Lost Love Story
The heart that has taken on many parts, the lead role in every play,
Stands up on stage too many times, after a while he forgets his name,
Lost in the illusion, gaining attention from every side,
He starts to personalize every role...Read More

OUT OF THE WOODS
You lost yourself
Thought everything is hopeless
Find your soul in the woods
Where there is darkness

Chased by creatures at night
Drowned in the water
Died in the infinite cold
There at the strange woods

Trying to find yourself
But you are chased by nightmares
Can’t even move on
Because...Read More

Linwood
There is a road,
Going through the fields,
Filled with cows,
All over the hills.

Through the outskirts of town,
This little sanctuary,
Holds the most beautiful sunsets,
To be found.

There is a road,
Winding through counties,
Beside the interstate,
But still holds its solemn country.

Deer roaming about,
In and out...Read More

Crones
Five gray, silver, and white haired crones
Navigated slimy green stones
Like tight rope walkers
Having been summoned by the wind talkers
They crossed a shallow creek
Each feeble and weak
They entered consecrated woods
Wearing cloaks and hoods
Upon awareness of being pursued
Their minds were filled with...Read More

Sam Came Out of The Woods Today
Sam came out of the woods today,
With his hair and his eyes looking so gray,
The gray of the walls were full of moss,
He stood in the sun and looked so ill
Walking up the wooded valley and wooded hill.

He stood in...Read More
