They were stoned out of their bodies and mind at Stonehenge

Climbed over the fence and enjoyed the Cromlech’s shadows

Razor wire would not prevent their midsummer night dream

Of being one with the moon which spilled light into their souls

Eclipsed by ultimate...Read More

Owl Tree
Owl tree
Dressed in American apparel 
Cross your heart
For the butterfly national anthem
They melt in the static
Like snowflakes
And stars slowly blink out
A physical embodiment of dreams
But I'm chasing cats
Clawing the owl tree
The lake here was shallow
But got deeper
Due to melting snowflakes

sitting next to an orange haired faerie on branch of tree

Inner vocal Quiver
?As if a child should understand an  adult’s muddle,
putrid oil slick puddle,
the dreadful pain we foist on wide-eyed offspring.
Robotic elders crush with rigid slabs of Portland censure whatever spark remains in t iny rosebud coloured cheeks before their prime.

Barn owl 
silently swoops
spreading its wings, talons 
wide with striking impact snatching
its prey.

The thunder of moth wings
can only be heard in the rain.

The distance between a screech owl
and your dreaming ear  - exactly one heart-beat.

The color blue turns red in the moonlight.

Melancholy finds ways to be your vision
until you disappear into...Read More

black, white, gray, tall, wrinkly, short
Money, broke, bank, racquetball court.
Sandal, beach, woodpecker’s bird call, 
Flower, plant, winter, spring, autumn, fall.

I am toying with words, waiting for a poem to surface.
Word association is the way I put my brain on notice.

Premium Member The Starlings Descend

They flow out of a pocket of sky,
a door in the air no one saw
until dark wings shower
over our heads.

Their plumage has a metallic sheen,
as if they were made in parts,
in some elvish workshop, their wings
hammered on last.
Wings that talk...Read More

Love Letter From The Soul XLVIII

Veiled in the mysteries of light
black cutting off the white
unmasked in the cotillion 

of life

no debutanted call
you said left, I was right
patience holding close
an eerie songless night

but the melody played for hours
in the breeze, the gentle tease
and the tide
washing upon...Read More

The fire, this fire...
Any fire, the fire..

Still the only thing
I know which lets
so easily go, bit
after bit of itself -
and, what falls away
falls up.

The red, upfalling snowflakes-
free to dance into the rising Night.
The smoke curls, twists
and snakes toward a promised
indistinguishment:...Read More

Who’s that cow standing in the way

Moo-ove, Moo-ove

No, that’s a donkey,listen how he brays

Premium Member Blackbird is Dead II
Blackbird, blackbird, where have you gone?
Here the limbs you lately danced upon,
In sunset orange, in sunset red,
Now the grapevine says, "Blackbird is dead."

Disbelieving owl cries, "Who? Who?"
Disheartened rooster won't cock-a-doodle-doo.
Nanette laid flowers on the grave.
He took but little, but much...Read More

I hope to redeem myself by being nicer to me

angry with my body for failing me
Taking no blame
This year I am smarter, wiser, an owl really.

Heart raptures are often revisited,
When poring over the things He said;
And as a rousing drama replays again,
All evergreen is love's aged domain!

The divine tales of each messenger-
How Moses by God obtained the law,
Then merciful...Read More

and swung his hand to get a ride 
Many stopped by, but was never favored 
And some came, but he never entered 

When the road sirened my coming,
