The Droughtless - heavily floats
past my window, obscuring all
but the foghorn tweets of wings.

Contrast the sweet songbirds,
sky-blue and linguistic-red,
with doldrum skies non-speak.

O angel-child’s cherubic cheeks -
vocalist mouth riveting
as a full moon; starless night.

Zoom in; warm colors of harbor -
teal, vanilla...Read More

The Wolf Appears
The wolf appears at night,
howling for his lost love,
she was the beauty with
red hair which flowed with
the wind while she sang
a lonely love song for her
Prince of Beasts, beckoning
him to appear before her
and unchain her from her
imprisonment that was imposed

Premium Member The Snowy Woods
Whose woods are these I think I know
Even covered in the fallen snow
This path I trod I think I've seen
Back when these woods were warm and green

Back when I was a younger lad
When times were good and not so bad

flowers bloom, 
they smell so sweet,
so many beautiful colors.

the boiling sun
warms my body, and
tickle my toes. swimming
and licking popsicles,
to cool us off.

autumn leaves turn
colors to red, yellow, and 
golden brown, they
like to twirl in the 
howling wind. 

Icy air, gray...Read More

A young woman, her form
still bearing a mirage of beauty.
In her detail she decays
closer still, a beauty returns
as a micro-delicacy.
Her charm dips in and out
like a swan through the bodies spoilage.
Da Vinci and his artist acolytes,
those red-handed anatomists,
all owe her...Read More

Below the edge of the storm, a quietness,
a silence is shaken from the trees,
from the shingles, 
from the long ears of field rabbits.

There is rain in the air, a downpour not yet arrived,
it is only a rumor a hush beyond...Read More

Shadow Rock
Where the waves break
And sea foam rises
The crisp sound of the ocean
Echoes in the cavernous openings
Of private oceanside caves.
Waters rise and recede
As time passes through.
Sunlit moments slightly shaded
By rock shadows floating by.
Caressed by tropical breezes,
Spritzed in salt waters,
My soul is...Read More

With long guns strapped to their sides

In recollections-
of my life's journey, thus far
the tattered pages flutter
     in my mind, snapshots  . . .
black and white and color, drift- 
faces, glimpses of places.

And I stand trembling-
as wind takes my tangled hair
I walk...Read More

Red roses today are on sale;
For Valentine’s Day they won’t fail
To impress all the gals
Who are more than just pals
And a hint of romance will prevail.

But the sign announced 55 bucks
For these flowers considered deluxe.
Maybe buyers don’t care
But to many...Read More

Gone without doubt
Gone without doubt.

Black lungs charred that glisten like coal,
Try stand and stumble like new born foal .

Bludgeoned and shattered by what’s inside me,
The force of disease you cannot see.

Surrounded by shadows lurking with fear,
Inevitable death gaining ever so near.

A full-gorged moon opens its illumined glare.
Ghost lights flood the dens, burrows and nests
of all creatures,
a limpid dementia swirls blood-red clouds 
in predatory eyes.
 it enters bedrooms, cellars, attics
creeps beneath crawl-spaces.
It follows us into slumber
raises the bones of shipwrecked dreams,

fine grains 
of warm sugar sand
blown by a soft sea breeze
pelleted our feet 
as we ran
to the foaming surf
gulls drifted overhead
red sun slowly sank
heart with arrow 
and our initials
drawn in the sand
driftwood fire
embers floated 
to kiss the sky
wine, smiles
embrace, love
forever...Read More
