canvass of color
like a slide show changing 
a testimony
of all my trials and heartache
specks of white, healing power...

Beautiful Imagination
By artist's hand, it was lovely crafted
Perfect strokes that it has
A rare beauty of a lass
First to behold on canvass

Passion portent
Oh glorious wonder
the unconfined human dreamer,
painting on the canvass of light

The passion of night resurges
at daybreak dance
Ink wells from lovers golden petals
gravity all nonsense

they came searching for me
integrating the essence of
tightly packed out bursts
in a rolled canvass
promoting the sweetness of mouth
pasted on the empty walls of
your migrating wants

Premium Member Upon An Infinite Flight
When the morning lark has honed its  silver chirp,
a dream-like canvass floats into a higher octave,
setting passages alight with sun filled prospect as eternity dissolves its outer limbs....

Art of my own
I'm in no way an artist.
My eyes burning.
But my tears are the paint, 
Lashes the brush,
My bed sheets the canvass.
My eyes burn.
Tears flood.
Mind shut.
While the painting unfolds in front of me. 
A timeline of such.......

Sky Painter
bend.  Bow
drawn, black sky
swath of color- 
fractured light.  Vivid 
bands, electric hues, broad 
brush strokes drip and run against 
a wet canvass.  Neon glow fading
to pastel shimmer disappearing
gone like a sidewalk painting in the rain....

Now How About That
Vibrant swirls, searching a canvass of black
Creating a world of colures, 
Taken from a gunnysack…
The mind explores all it observes,
There is no turning back~
Admirations, full of life deserved;
The portrait is complete, all concur,
Now how about that…

Through my window
As the falling rain trickles on window
The sound had come back again
In this quiet down room

A canvass created through my window
Tracing heart with my finger
Slowly fades away

Starving Artist
Crouched in an alley
Cold unwelcoming cobblestone
Raindrops keep him half awake
Stayed up all night sipping coffee
Finishing touches to canvass of
Bluebird skies and sailing ships
Those holding umbrellas pass by
Look - and move on through
November's leaded skies......

Warrior Of All Time

You are my empty page of love 
my double spaced sheet of solid white 
you are my blank canvass 
my heavenly shade of metal alloy 
and I am your Helen of Troy 
This Iliad of love 
contains spark notes of our passion 
No Greek God can ever compare to you 
my warrior of all Time ....

Complicated reactions to simple actions are merely distractions.
If I don't mask it it's bound to create damage.
lets not go there..
I'm still not sure what happened, there was nothing on the canvass.
You see I've had it with this madness you seek.
Don't mistake this for sadness.
It's anger I imagine....

The Poetry Dancer
Stars twinkling 
at night, doth bring 
warm, fetching  
this surreal passion 

of slithering feet 
doing the quick step
in moon stroke music

Ah, the smell of
lemon rinds and touch 
of wild jasmine
swirling, inside me, yet I’m

too timid, to voice out
like a canvass 
left untouched, by a brush...

Empty canvass. 

Your periscope
Will never
reach my center. 

Unless I attribute
Your Felix and
such ridiculousness. 

Silly am I?
Well perhaps
It is my unrepairable
Libido now. 

And the elderly 
Weep while I partake
In sinfulness. 

But of course, 
we are of the 

And indeed
A swing-set
Cannot fix this....

the deep charcoal cat looks quizzically at me
while the pale dog snuggles at my feet.

outside the sky drops forming an impressionistic 
green-blue canvass  with mashed potato clouds.

tree leaves swirl in energized humid air.

a storm whispers that soon she’ll
transform early evening.

my life, could i chew it out. so i can forget the cuds of the ghostly, the deadly and happy, dome and my home, dad pray i roam, the inexhaustible labels of it fall, my name plastered on the wall, think i but none many took me fun, in my toddled ninny, all i do is forget the transverse to my God i canvass.

If I Knew Picasso
If I knew Picasso,
I’d say Pablo come and see.
Bring your canvass here,
And capture this beauty. 

I’d ask him as he painted,
The things he’s thinking of.
If painting brought him peace,
As he paints a painted love.

I‘d watch as he stroked,
The canvass from his soul.
It would leave me in awe,
If I knew Picasso....

Porous Puke Spree - Day 16
face like string
gaunt guitar split
rustic rhythm bleeds
gaze gore breeds
hoisted hollow dug
by leering lust

limbs like sequoia
bounty breeze's destroyer
nocturnal nature's lawyer

callous curves canvass
attention into trance
stark emotions spanked

I, punctured priest
porous puke spree.

color fades
as the color fades
on dreams of yesterday
a painting bleached by sun
realization not begun

no beginnings at the end
dreams you can't transcend
the color starts to run
on what is left undone

thought there was more time
'fore clouds blocked the sunshine
canvass smeared, the likeness none
untouched, forgotten, shunned...
