Elfin Spring
Down by the soily brook they go, under the woody bridge. 
The Featherly Elfins make their home to hide from the Blustery Fridge.
Made of snow and windy blow, icesickles in his hair,
he comes to still the Valleyville, blowing crystals in...Read More

I am painted by a minor Dutch master
whose name is only known
as a Flemish squiggle.
Low clouds could evaporate
or lift the wings of varnished geese.
Wind-sails part a low-land mist.
I will send the black dog.
Pheasant and grouse fly up
each feather intense with...Read More

Million Ways
Make your way, now
Like a child
Beholden by the golden rays
Covet and Yearn 
Beg For what you need 
An accurate hand
Plates the heavy meal

Nourished and free
So it seems
Until it all gets too real
The sanctuary 
Of boundless joy
Greets us every day

And I’m...Read More

Roll up roll up! we’re going to war,
It’s a noble cause, to be fighting for,
If your a boy, we’ll make you a man,

After the Party
There comes a headache
when you want to disappear from the scene. 

Head still cloudy with last night's drink,
Crumbling decor strewn all over,
Leftover food, stinking in a corner.
Not a chair, not a book,
In the way you had arranged. 
And the whole...Read More

Premium Member Oh, Winter
Oh, Winter it is time for you to put away your white coat,
and to roll up your tattered blanket once so beautiful;
time for me to put away my cozy comforter;
and my red toboggan still dwelling lonely on the porch.
The fireplace...Read More

caprice 1, venting 2
The stars are not so far.
You may pluck them
like berries, and pop them in your mouth
and they will twinkle on your tongue,
or you can put them in your pockets like candies,
or carry them home in a handkerchief.
Remember to roll up...Read More

Elements
Into yet another time, with it all begins again
Silver, brass, gold, copper and tin
One thought for now, only one to think
An only thought for only me, brought about with paper and ink
To form behavior within one's own mind
So many tangled...Read More

I must go down to the beach again, to the lonely beach and the sky
And all I ask is a stretch of sand where the silent molluscs lie.
With a blue sky and a stiff breeze and the cumulonimbus flying,

When I Was Immortal
When I was immortal, I believe I lived right
maybe not healthy or safe, but right.
I could stay awake for days
Drink my weight in liquid gold and
Roll up the next day feeling like royalty craving, what’s next

Names I could call were...Read More

Premium Member Clouds of Leaves
I love the way elms rise to float clouds of leaves
They seem snagged on bare branches so high in the air.
In my youth these clouds hospice beyond all compare,
I see God meet me halfway and roll up His sleeves!

There Is No Excuse For Ignorance

And fooling everybody about your naked charity
There is no excuse for ignorance

Asylum Thoughts
In a cemetery,
a boy is holding a lurking flower
he carved his father's face on his palm. 
He waited for the mouth of the grave to open
so he could use a basket to gather his tears. 
He crossed many oceans to...Read More

Days Of Innocence
We danced in the rain
fleeing under our zincked roof only when the thunder roared
like we stepped on its  tail
as the soles of our feet pattered on the earth
Mother would make supper
calling out to me, "Ghenerho. You'll get cold!"

And when...Read More

Admiration for the lucky few
I surreptitiously envy those who

find the opportunity to roam freely

in glades within woods

and over verdant prismic hills

under open blue sky's

soaking up and embracing natures

flowers and fauna as they are pollinated

by insects abounding.

I marvel at those who can sit and spend...Read More
