This fortress is coming down;
It's been a long time in the making.
This bastion can't hold its own;
All these walls are shaking....

Every Ounce of Forest
A glint of light
Slicing through every
Ounce of forest
What delicate
Hands of God
Light still
Pouring through
This bastion...

1. with a fragment of devotion still lodged inside her heart, he lives on.
2. with his last bastion of hope, he called out her name and the stars fell down.
3. with their red ribboned love affair splitting and fraying words were no longer enough....

Glueing to destiny
Resonance pools plentiful
As birds and squirrels
Chirp beyond garden bastion

A man in his house
Hermit crab's through life events
A bigger driveway!
Spared no expense!

And gushing parenthood
To provide with cherished glee
Never forget
The illusion of drawing boundaries

So we instruments
Imagine our own song
Glueing to destiny

Premium Member One Tree Stands Alone
Sentinel amid the dunes, watching, waiting, thriving, a bird tower standing tall upon unending sands that, roll out their own roadways. A green skyscraper in the distance; horizon dot, between two realms. Courageous bastion of wisdom... a tree, stands alone; testament to Nature’s fortitude.

Safe From Any Harm
S-afe from any harm, 
H-ouse of worship is a bastion; 
A-sk the Father for security, 
I-mplore Him to provide protection.

S-afe from any harm
O-n the fifth of December; 
M-ay you always have the love
O-f the arms of the Maker.
Z-one of risk is far away, chilling rain turns warm; 
A-lmighty God gives you shelter, safe from any harm....

you climbed the fortress
up trellises of vine
to capture her heart
to hold for all time

the tower a bastion
protected, secured
without hesitation
your vision unobscured

your mission was gallant
the plan was construed
knowing not resistance
from a love that was true

as you scale the tower
you know in your heart
a happy ending was coming
you knew from the start...

Jeweled Inner Peace....
Smitten,bitten,forcefully written
visions of missons,from where i'm sittin
golden still holdin',is love unfoldin'
petals of Lotus slowly bloomin....

Forgettin',forgiven,the life we're livin'
outlast the past,path of peace we're given
fragrant vagrant,leavin' heartfelt gracious
personalized peace as jeweled precious.....

Compassion's bastion....spur of the moment......

Gave My Life

I gave my life For a cause without concern Like a flower Digging through concrete I filter the light Through years of darkness What is left Is all that sustains me I sought God But found only demons So my heart Became a bastion of corruption I imprisoned myself But blamed others for years Now alone I wonder how I could ever be forgiven

Last Day's
And in those day's
Let there be joy and happiness
In that time of judgment
I will not
Relinquish that bastion
Of humanity
That link with God
For which ultimately
I have fallen short'
So be it that for the Glory
Of He, in that
We are intrinsically connected
To this,
This is His glory
And is bound
By testimony of faith
In the Lord, Our Savior
Jesus Christ

Deep between the years
The history of this moment
Parallel in all decision recharted
A final glance revealed
Chimerical, each flight through dazzling entry

Urgent not to be left alone
Buried, the skies peel from their gaze
Criminal to walk out each square and peg

Lost beyond inner butterfly of space
Leaping circus rings and beast wrangled
The last bastion of you to me

Free without a second
The birth or uncovering 
Falling deep between the years...

Facsimiles burst in the jungle
Facsimiles burst in the jungle
Gestures pulling paint off the wall
I've seen it all
Crouched, hideaway consumer companion choice
Urgency gather fervently
Upsetting the sewage balance

Garden shears hanging sturdy frames
Blue collar bastion glowing brain
A belt buckle preacher enlivened struggle
Suicide ransom beneath the huddle

I'm making waves
And riding them too
Street animal casting feather balloons
Whispering a marching tune...

Your love, my Lord  
The bastion of my soul  
No enemy of your Word 
Ever, able would be,
Its walls of devotion to 
Hate, the kingdom of terror to

*Boko Haram, Nigeria, just used a 10-year-old girl as 
  a bomb-detonator, right after massacring up
  to 2,000 people. To these victims of terror I dedicate 
  this little poem of mine! God bless their souls!...

high atop a hill it stood there a bastion of memories fortress tired and disheveled standing in solemn silence keeper of our secrets complicit our love not meant to be doomed from the start one day the verdict handed down guilty by association imploded and in a blink there it was gone all but the memories

Screeching Howl to the fair wind
At the traffic dodged broken barrier
My clown  eclipses pinholes gander
Reeked in the phallic sundust
Pouring out in putrid urgencies
Human beams of ghastly thought
Clinging to lucrative belly rings
Bastion of glowing hope tied to rope
Losing abundance in American swamps
As we creek our bells across the world
Drowning coca cola babies all the same
 Puns, cliques, and gospel truants 
I am fearless to step on statues
To heckle hairdos and smeckle bear feuds

Poetry is the fashion
The pope, the last bastion
Out with the old
In with the aborted

Crowds gather in anticipation
Poet Arthur recites To Patrick's Nation
England you see
Believes in the Orange and the free

They shout and they cheer
His fans are waiting for whiskey dear
Redheads filled with dragon tempers
A delight to Arthur's Kingdom of pleasure

Buried among the Scottish thistle
One day yee shall find the orange rose

		that tickles ones fancy

alight alliteration
a sacred sparrow
hovers over the sage,
she flutters a feather 
giving gift of a page

the alliteration lights
with a spiral of sparks, 
and the quickening quill
darts to dazzle the dark

worlds of wonder 
sing through my mind,
and building a bastion
with mosaic designs

I now leave lines
of crumbs and seed,
praying the sparrow
comes back to feed

light on the language
and with a little chagrin,
I unfurl this page 
to a wintering wind.

Premium Member Living a lie
The world order has finally arrived
Australia probably the last bastion,
workplace reform to taint the purity of decency
indelible profits gouged out of misery
under the pretence of corporate ideals.
More wars to be fought
more senators to be bought,
when greed disguised by competition
leads to privatization of all that stood
for the common good and welfare,
and the populous become subjects of the
‘Lowest common denominator’.

Constant displays of spirit
 Never in the vein of the culprit.
Ongoing capacity to overcome strain
  Never over-run by any sprain
Unrelenting to be broken by failure
 Never undone always finding an answer
Resilient to opposition
 Never defeated demeanor of a chaplain
A temperament  true to one’s morals
  Never at a loss to stand up to evils
Genuine firm determination
 Never weak always a bastion
Enduring tenacity to achieve
 Never give up, with the power to believe...
