Cold and Lost
She sits alone on the cold, dirty pavement
looking despondent and lost
her small voice request pleadingly 'any loose change miss'
I see her most days on my way to work
wonder at her age, her history and ask myself 'where is her mum'?

source of all pleasure, my only desire;

paramour of memory, ultimate mistress?

The Manor house
By invitation from a trusted friend, 
a medium intervention took place and I went.
The building set in the thick forest by a shimmering lake,
some broken sheds looking sad and strange to take.
Weeded and worn the manor house thatch,
a frail welcome...Read More

Summer is over and the farmer now rests from his toil,
Having labored hard to wrest his crops from the fruitful soil.

Looking down undulating mountains with
Their highs and dips,
Reminding me of your long neck, your breasts,
Your thighs and hips,
Your miraculous face, running my finger down
Your brow, your nose and lips,
Your soft sensuous arms, your hands and your
Sensitive finger tips.

I’m brought back...Read More

DELINEATED DESIRE
So, I went to this place, where everyone had a familiar face
But at the moment of connection, I experienced an abrupt correction
So, I turned and walked away
Oh, they smiled and played, til I got in their way
They grimaced at my...Read More

CHARMING SOUTH AFRICAN WINTER 

Countries where fluffy, naughty frilly snow continually falls, 
Is a fairy-tale where children and adults, skate on sheets of ice.
In South Africa we also see with wondrous awe, when snow calls
And time arrives, these tasteless watery...Read More

Changes in the relationship
It was friendship, then relationship now broken ship

It was kisses from a rose, now tongues Pierce
With scorn

MAY I HALF YOUR HEART
Maybe I misunderstood
When I agreed to honor your request
Half belongs to me
And the other, I choose to invest
....in loving you

Boundaries are important
No one can have ALL they desire
So why are you disappointed/surprised
That I don't have a ROARing fire

ZION'S CHILDREN
You came to me in the night
Perceiving my heart's desire
My candle for you, still lit
But no roaring fire

...monotony...

You speak, I listen
You command, I yield
"Can't you see, I'm barren
There's no fruit in my field!"

...UGH...

Promises made to me
Witnesses present to attest

God We Have To Thank

And when seen how our sad  hearts sank;
Loved a lot;
He said not;
God we have to thank for pulling a prank.

The Cowboy Rides For Christmas, Part II
For half an hour Dix had rode true
when the canyon opened up wider.
In front of him five stubbly men
sat around a roaring fire.

The leader Dixon recognized,
as his sifted through Santa’s sack.
He was an outlaw known far and wide

The
maple
leaves are burnt
orange and red
falling and drifting.

It is Thanksgiving-
we gather all our love,
all together again;
the turkey is divine,
the pumpkin pie so sublime.
Goodbye-  see you at Christmas!

Outside is a picture perfect winter wonderland,
the family is gathered around a roaring fire;

Cold
Which way should I turn and go
Into the wind and the driving snow
Across the moor, barren and white
One against nature, alone and slight

The howling wind displaces the white
Dark sky chases away the light
Visions of home invade my mind
Cloud my thoughts...Read More

The Snowflake
The Snowflake

Sit quietly
And pretend 
There's a roaring fire 
In the fireplace

The snow
Silently builds 
Against the north side
Of the house. 

Smell 
The smoke? 
Listen
To the wind howl?

And maybe 
In the cold night
Hear a barn door
Banging away? 

But we're wrapped
In our feather...Read More

The Wordsmith's Anvil

 It starts as a tiny ember
In my mind, heart and soul
A single word or simple thought
Synapses fire furiously
Fanning it like a blacksmith's bellows

Suddenly it is a roaring fire
Brain now engulfed in the blaze
I have to quench quickly
