Sunflowers
Sunflowers with a majestic gold crown
The blue-purple of the evening sky
The white clouds with a sunbeam inside
Flow - sweet river onwards
To a place that can't be found 
on any map - directions scattered
Suddenly now - I feel its warmth
Grabbing at...Read More

Windwalker
I
knew a Tiger
who swam with dolphins
along the razor’s edge

and
meditated with a yellow bird
under his honey’s tree
in a west coast garden.

A
rare breed
from an indigenous
creed.

His
poetic wisdom
written with
zen.

He
sung his songs
in syllables:
5-7-5 and 5-7-5-7-7.

His
beloved’s last kiss
left him fragrant roses
when she crossed over.

Where
did our
Windwalker
go?

Lava

Premium Member THE DRY HEAT
stars slowly diminish
darkness completes
still we feel the suffers of heat
the fever suspends in the thick
a velvet’s texture mix
clinging to skin as if drowned
dawn flexes, stretches and surrounds
as the last of struggling stars obscound
sunlight strikes without a sound
grabbing and stabbing clusters

THE FREE BIRD

I caught me a bird
A rare breed
Cheerful, brilliant,
Beautiful - this bird

And for two turns
And a half
Of an hour glass,
It was mine
To keep
To cherish....
And then it flew
In hues of red
And white
Leaving behind
Cute white stones
And a priceless pieces
Of wood
And sweet...Read More

My Crush
My crush is of a rare breed,
A day without me makes her heart bleed

She's of a special twist,
She can't go a day unkissed

She's hardly a normal girl,
Her colour's extremely dull

Her nails are are pointed like a needle,
Too much for me...Read More

IRONBAR
He just appeared to me, like wispily curling 
Chimney smoke, 
One grim and early morning in the very midst of 
Decembers briefest days, on the highest slope,
Toiling through my daily round; where, slowly 
Driving up past the Whitethorn hedgerows to...Read More

Gamblers were considered a rare breed years ago.
Nobody could play outside of Las Vegas and Reno.
Then something happened that did not look too pretty.
In 1978, casinos were open for business in Atlantic City.
Soon after, gaming houses appeared in other states.

Expressing emotions by a poetic pallet of diversity,
On a canvas rainbow bursting forth across the
