This morning while walking in the darkness
I hadn’t traveled very far
When I looked up…
and across the sky
I saw a shooting star.

A screech owl trilled, “Did you see that?”
(he was hidden from my view)
Then I heard a second hidden screech owl...Read More

Premium Member Night Light
Across the ridges and peaks
Behind the mountain’s lore
Rides the night light I adore
A silent moon that soars
Creating a night of sweet accord

Lying high up in the sky
It moves so slowly that I do try
To capture its gentle essence
With my camera...Read More

My Sky

You are my sky,
the unfurled petals of infinite blue
where on the wings of swan cloud
the tapestry of my dreams flies. 

On the canvas of my heart
colors of your sunburst smile paint portrait of love.
The pearls of dew on my emerald...Read More

King's Mountain, Part II
...And though the rifles were slower to load,
the Overmountain Men made use of trees,
concealing themselves from counterfire
in places that the British couldn’t see.

With countless snipers popping out to shoot,
all the loyalists there atop the hill
knew that something had to be...Read More

King's Mountain, Part I
It was after the defeat at Camden,
in the fall of 1780,

sought to exploit Britain’s victory.

To secure South Carolina’s countryside,
he marched his loyalist forces forward,
threatened the men beyond Appalachia,
said he would lay waste with fire and sword.

the banks of mind breaks, eroded by dense despair,
the river of affliction in full flood doesn’t spare
the broken heart drowning in the dungeon of pain.

No better feeling


Cool autumn nights
and warm sweater wishes
Sunset desires
in apricot kisses

November eyes
as sapphires glisten
Echoes of love,
melodic we listen

Shadowy bliss,
neath maple trees swaying
Soft fallen leaves
together we’re laying

Shooting star dreams,
moonlight revealing
You in my arms
there’s no better feeling

And wish upon a shooting star.

This drug I take

In the shade of love


Crystallized moon beams,
fractured light of endless desires
shimmer on you as our eyes meet
beneath a canopy of gemstone brilliance
Pearl buttons glisten as fingers touch
and your smile grants permission,

Serenity of the night serenades
our hearts in silent yearnings
