I read,
then chase the sun 
around the house 
to fuse the inspiration 
and the words I’ll use
to write a poem after dark.

An Angel With Sins

An angel with my white divinity
Beautiful, holy femininity
Committed a sin and did not regret
She tore me apart and abandoned me

Long is the jeourney to death,
dragging feet that the ising dust 
engulf, a naive soul may ask
looking left," what's behind that? "

Undeniable

The pieces of my life  seen by the Lord
At judgment time in their full shame or pride
Pure evidence of faith in deed and word.

Peril in the Wood

Red fire blazing in the wood;
just charred stumps where trees once stood.
The denizens must flee and run
because the deadly flames have won.

Star Gazing

A bazillion stars twinkle in the night
sky; pinpoints on black velvet, perfect
jewels created by the universe
for us to gaze upon in wonderment.

Unspoken Love

The language of love,
spoken in sighs,
no voices are needed to say;
You know you're in love
when a shiver,
says more than mere words
can convey.

Now give me hope when books begin
to bite, when school begins to strangle me.
My worries wear on me and Satan's sin
does weave and warp Hosannah's peace.

Ere the bite of Summer's first chill
tis the prelude to Autumn's breath
come next,depressed, is the Winter wind shrill
on to Spring's resurrection from death

The poet

To look and search for the elegant word.
Seeking an emotion never expressed.
Expressing a thought that cuts like a sword.
Conveying a concept that is suppressed.

Cleopatra Never Had it So Good

I had to pick a form that starts with “I”
'cause Isis has come home to live with me.
It's not so much for me to wonder why
as just accept the way things want to be.

Unwanted Responsibility

As leaves begin to drift around my house
to places they have not yet been, I won-
der what the neighbors think about the fall.
I don’t exactly plan to rake them up.

Untunneled Vision

We were once the eye of the universe,
And thinking otherwise was just perverse.
Many times in the past, wrong we have been,
And history proves we shall be again...

Untitled

The window seems to show outdoors so nice,
Forever keeping wilderness at bay.
The floating seeds assail the crystal pane,
They try and bring us back, but no, we stay!

Cracked Film

If I cannot dream in any other hue,
Then stretched upon my eyes sticks a blue film,
Therefore my cornea cracks and shatters
Because irises trick both the fake and true.

Intention

Beginning of your route,
May frighten you, and even good
Wish, shimmering at distance as a torch,
Attracted you for minute that is less
Than minute spent, examining

The Core of Life

For we are but the cast of cradles and
The calm conclusion of our fragile lives.
Our roles are set, in this, the gorgeous land,
By our conception, God, and grave demise.

Bombastic speach

Melodramatic 
Rhetorical 
Mistakes 

Eyes hear
ears see
hands taste
tongues think
hearts speak 

Reprehend 
Do not question the reality
of  a poet's 
pen

Spring

Dragonflies soaring everywhere,
To show that Spring is in the air.
Children coming out to play
And this is what they have to say;
"Spring, Spring, Spring is here today!"
