Watching a sunset with someone who cares
Hearing the rain dance on an old tin roof
Knowing what it feels like to have her there
Spending a whole day hearing only truth

Cuddling in the morn, cuddling in the night
A heartfelt smile with a...Read More

The Moon Man and Emu Eggs

The full moon is a dead crow
Picking away at my skull
A plastic glamor feeding lies
I have been dying all day
Each moon ray painting
Blue and red lines on my old sarcophagus
There is an emu egg inside my heart
Its incandescent, pulsing, breathing...Read More

Mr Storm
There's a storm brewing in the skies
I see it clear through my brown eyes 
The clouds are thick with heavy rain
Oh Lord here comes the storm again
I'll find some shelter from the storm 
Cause I don't want it to cause...Read More

rain dance

Evil takes his victory lap
while ashes like confetti fall.
But demons stay their hands mid-clap,
now doubting they’ve won, after all...

For on the charred and war-stained sands,
Hope, in pink galoshes stands.

Plants swaying, beautiful sky, softest feeling
Clouds crusted in white with gray centers
An unexpected warmth to the air this morning.
Any hope of rain? I peer at the clouds, not knowing.
Decide to lug the hoses around and water my flowers.

Rain Dance
My mother puts on her royal attire
To do the rain dance of a princess,
But her feet are barren,
For it no longer rains like before.

Years ago, I watched mother dance,
Her fingers plucking moon petals,
And dropping them on my sleepy eyelids
While I...Read More

Rain Dance
Waiting for thunder, waiting for rain
Waiting for lightning to strike on the plain

When will it come, when will it come?
The heat of the sun on the skin of a drum

Watching horizons,watching the hills
Watching the widening cracks in the rills

When will...Read More

Rain Dance
Do you see the rain dance
no drop at a still stance,
pitter pattering all around
bouncing back to the ground

Steady there while you sit
as atop your head they hit,
each one is an invitation
and a newfound inspiration

No more need to stay inside
or under...Read More

Brightly shining green yellow
A cottonwood applaudes the coming of the rains
Waving glimmering in rain rays
Reminding me to dance in the sun

Sun spice
Rain nice

Rain dance
High low 
Deep trance

Joy springs
New gaze
Love brings
Crisp craze

Looks tell
Bright lot
Dreams dwell
Pure thought

Craft choice
Grand chance 
Play poise
Sweet dance

Spread spice
Feel nice

Is it to ruin my day and make me carry an umbrella,

Autumn moon
Luna aura bright;
Wind-blown whispers

Windy wetness spreads;
Pitch-black frozen touch

Hot infusion warms;
Heart feels vigour spread

Road trip to wherever;
Apple orchards call


Flea market fringe
Rows of sweet surprise;

Once upon this time
Princess Yang
yells her dad,
You are an ugly king!

This, even before her usual
Good morning, daddy.

Her ugly King responds,
Princess Yang
looks and sounds just like me.

You are a pickle hamburger
and its raining here,
she responds,
somewhat randomly

It is raining pee

You are the heart beside my heart
You are always there before the ripples  grow into a hurricane.
You are apt to the reverb of raging thunder so you always do the rain dance.

Gladness oozes from Yolantha's fingers
Radiating warmth, gently caressing
Aftershock of angelic touch lingers
Tickles 'touchy subjects'; stress-repressing
Internal spark, external expressing
Filling Heavenly crown with jewels accrued
Invoking rain-dance-showers-o-blessing
Calming storms of amplified magnitude
Alluding, "All God's children are valued!"
Touching foreheads with fear-fever fervant
International Queen of Gratitude

Father Of Light
Walking on jet black sand.
Did a rain dance to the 
sounds of thunder.
And ocean waters.
Such beautiful sounds.
Waves from the waters
Surrounding music in the crowd
Choirs singing out loud. 
To the echoes of love.
Laughter from the Angels in heaven.
Twinkling stars above.

It's my life
Oh. It’s my life 
Don’t compel me for anything
I’ll do what feels good for me
Leave me or lose me.

Everything, everything is possible in this world.
And one thing you must know

In This Hole
I can’t think.
Can’t get my thoughts
To stop their frenzied waltz
And line up once again
In a straight pattern,
One after the other,
The way they used to 
When everything was still
So goddamned simple.
I can’t effing think.
If my shattered heart
Beats any faster,
I fear it...Read More
