The bell rings of thirst
to answer by a drink 
ease the thirst a full drink 
half a drink inching to more quench

Gently like the mist
Inching closer to my heart
Magical yet real
Eyes I'd always recognize;
From your beauty I can't hide...

hoping seagulls nowhere found
low tide threatens me

Entry in Journey contest.

The Leopard
Hiding in the underbrush 
Inching forward 
Silently on padded paws, 
The leopard stalks its prey.

Approaching the Goal
Inching closer to that mark,
I feel almost accomplished,
Though a miniscule part of me,
Pierces through,
Restraining me from the happiness,
I may rightfully deserve.

Ready For Change 2K13
He whom dwells therein that bottle is I.
An entire teen-hood just squandered away.
A foolish sot throughout my twenties; Aye!
Inching thirty, I'm found longing change's day.

Growing Vines
Green growing vines
         And up
       And down
Circling the old, old oak
Crawling across the ground
    Inching slowly
 Making no sound...

My Playground
sliding down
the cerulean spiral
grasping for
plasticine safeguards
to soften the
soul-crushing impact
of hitting bottom
feet scrambling
fingers digging
inching the way upward
only to slip

Clocks Ticking
Looking forward
Can't go back
Knocking on the future
Sleeping off the past

Ticking away the hours
Inching by and by
Can we face tomorrow?
It’s something new
Never going back
Got to go on.

Past mine speech
Inching to the edge of that 

quietly the gentle soul of I
until her blush,

and her digits reach,
can you believe,
for the likes of me

Touching my flesh
where I had use to fright,
now this soul becomes flush,
deep into my sinews,
past mine speech...

Little Green
Little green
through windowpane,
goes inching up and down.

He travels far,
to distant star,
of orange and golden brown.

The fruit he seeks
on his short trip
has died upon the vine

And yet he strolls
over wood and holes,
in search of sweetest wine.

I venture forth in this wood unknown
Trembling inside this greenery overgrown
I trustingly advance each step foreward
Inching towards my fate unguarded
Lowering my gaze somewhat subdued
I spy my rainbow my future I view
Longing future wisdom spiralling notions
My lusty prelude to imagination enthrown!

belief is the end 
of your awareness
inching snails shrivel
mango groves pregnant
awareness is foolish perfect
mystery of trinity worshiped
black or white blood
is red and warm
today is the 
beginning of to
morrow and the
end of yesterday
the end
absconding thoughts

Nightly {Stream of Consciousness}
Drops of oil
Scar the soul
Scare the mind
Steal the life


Frigid and still
Creeping vines
Inching in the dark
Sealed rosebuds
Fall to the ground
Trembling in the wind

Beak and Talon
Silhouette against the moon
Darkness under the wing

The Wait

Tomorrow's dream-like state

has not yet arrived

not yet met its demands;

could it be the frozen clouds

possesing a fall of rain?


And so I pitch here

under the blue of stars for now,

in the climate of lethargy

sinking my feet in a journey

that is stalled, inching a foot

toward hope.

Like a butterfly
True love grows like a caterpillar becoming a butterfly.
Starting off slow inching as it goes by.
Soon your wrapped up in love
Like a caccoon patiently waiting undisturbed.
Getting ready to spread new wings
Each pattern created perfectly.
You together make one whole complete
While flying to the rhythm of eachothers heart beat....

The sound of your name is beautiful
Reminiscent of the feeling
when a warm bath pours over my body
Lapping my feet and rolling over my legs
Kissing my stomach
Inching towards my face
Warming all of me
Only you have this power
Only you have my heart
James only you have the right touch
Only you can make me melt into mush

That Sun
The sun
Setting behind 
The high mountains

The rays
So brilliant
And warming

The clouds
Just lined with
A faint yellow glow

The sky
Slowly losing
It's glorious blue

The night
Inching it's way
Into the open sky

The mountain
Is nothing but a
Silouhett in the distance

The sun
Setting behind
The high mountains

Blue Wave
Heat on the door, windows airless,
    Obsessive heat.
Inching blandness in sorrow soaked.
Prism of light spearing through our town
Filled with hope.
A lingering ghost stays on.
Hungry repetition, happened, been and gone.
So slowly, interest fading 
To a daylight breaking
For that moment,
By a candle bare,
On rosewood eyes you shine....

Bucket List Check
The majestic balloon stands and waits,
Passengers to glide through the sky.
It is really happening, take-off!!!
Up, up and up.
Down to kiss the river.
Floating high, God’s peace is there.
Eyes closed, feeling the tranquility.
Gazing all around at the splendor.
Slowing inching towards earth.
Feet back on the ground.
Champagne in celebration!!!
