If the color blue was sad
Would it be black?
If the black lost it’s color
Would it be white?
If white married lavender purple
Would it too, be blue?
What about brown and yellow
What’s procreations due, would the children be orange
For what’s at stake;
The color...Read More

First Rain in Monterey Winter

Gloomy's the yard covered with fallen leaves
Winter's coldness comes with winds wet with rains
Lonely souls dread most the lengthy cold nights
A quick-paced life about thin frosts complains
A cocoon imprisons the silkworm tight
Burnt out candles waste their flickering light
The empty house...Read More

Nature's lullaby
a flutter, a drop of rain
caught on a spring breeze
drifting way up high

loft above this evening mist
touching the sun, a gentle kiss
a fleeting moment, perpetual bliss

i gaze upon the starry sky
a look of wonder in my eye
i vow to never...Read More

Premium Member Gown of Green
Her gown of sprouting green, sleeves of new leaves
Jade shade illuminates fresh summer rain
Woven gossamer silk on turquoise trees
Threaded through her mare's alabaster manes
Planting gold hope along emerald lanes
November mists persists in chartreuse dawn
With aspirations to sage Avalon.

High and low I have looked for you.
You are hard to find.
I talked to everyone, but they think...
I am crazy.
Where are you?

Low and high, I can not see,
me, with you.
I wish that you would love me back,
but you can...Read More

Premium Member Predictable
predictable rise
 who knows
deer in the road
traffic woes

blackened skies
amidst the hush
parting clouds
a dawning blush

weather forecast
rain or snow
either or
unpredictably so

what ever happens
inside this day
we have no say

If You Stay
If you stay
I'll be complete
There's no time to weep from one's eyes
If you come, don't say goodbye
If you love me, don't turn around
Promise solid ground
Then your love will be found
If you stay
Love will be true
Come in from the rain

Duke of York Uncorked
Prince Andrew in the press is tried, but he denied
both far and wide, as Duke of York (soon Earl?),
a train of thought upon the side,
a rain of sweat upon a girl.
Please, cork that Duke before I swirl!

When I am broken dear Lord you carry me,
hold me and protect me from life's storm;
for this world can be so cruel and so evil,

Our Dream
We built ourselves a dream and sent it high into a blue sky,
Watched as the gods crushed it between their thighs-
cried as they threw it back down to earth- tiny pieces like rain,
our dream fell from above like a broken...Read More

The Feeling Of Feeling

In my rose garden I can smell the spring coming,
listen the sound of music the whistling zephyr brings,
I taste the dew on the unfurled petals so divine,
the smoothness of silk in their velvet touch I feel.

The pristine smell of rain-soaked...Read More

An Umbrella

My sword was made of wood 
Perhaps, I couldn't fight invincibly enough
But still resisted trustfully. My roots
And my beliefs were devilishly taught.
I could attack. I definitely could attack
Those metal flies that flew around my arms
Creating arcs,
Creating watery alarms.

My sword was...Read More

Summer rain, melting Arctics
and the lipids lining the nerves
in your brain. These are the metrics
of our times. Mere resolve

is not enough to take care
along the highway—you need wheels and prayer.
When you realize there’s no there there
that’s a scary day. End...Read More

-some escape across paper bridges
through a bluish rain
weighted by hasty decisions

rooting gemstones from smolder
sowing hard clay into gardens 
for somersaulting minds to peacefully lay..
either way you play it
