Summits hypnotize,
Ardor, eviscerated,
Seeds defy the dirt.

Life's Climb

steep, rocky ascent -
divine source brightens vista 
summits surpass blues

Trails End
Surrender a comfort,
ambition rebuked 
Content in my history,
old passions to suit

New mountains stay virgin,
those summits I’ve climbed
All truth in reflection
—whose peace I now find

(The New Room: March, 2021)

Majestic mounts tower 
    mightily, like a king,
        Mesmerising poets'
minds with their grand power,
    Making them gladly sing
        moving songs 'bout sunset's
            magic, seen on summits.

Wild Love Groves
I love you wild and free
From midnight to the dawning spree
When broken glass startles the mirror
Our love grows clearer

Through fortune and nebulous climb
Tucked into each other's sides
By mystic banter and throaty relief
Holding still in our belief
That love summits grow
With each passing leaf...

Three Sisters
Three sisters ate three
sundaes on three Sundays on
Three Sisters' summits.

Faith climbed "Faith," Hope climbed
"Hope," and Charity climbed "Faith,"
"Hope," and "Charity."

Coronavirous Verse
Glorious human race!

Monstrous machines 
unto globe thou place.

Surpassed grandeur, 
overwhelmed with grace;

Heaven's territories 
thou subdue 'nd embrace;

Surmounted all mysteries, 
summits and space.

Yet, thy mightiness, 
perfection never pace;

Tiniest Coronavirus, 
fail thou to face!...

The Writer
The secret of life,
making old things new:
fluffing the seas
long flattened 
by sails…
restoring clouds
to the summits of mountains,
not one worth the climb
were it not for
high mysteries

I sit, pen in hand
as if holy--
we are all priests of a sort
(both light and dark)
our sacrament
that of creation....

Premium Member FOR YOU

I’ve flown the valleys
I’ve soared the summits
I’ve stalked the moon
That glitters in your eyes

I’ve walked the deserts
I’ve crossed the seas
I’ve kissed the sun
That shimmers on your skin

snow ball icicles 
angel man tunnel igloos
rains turn white droplets

snowy fluffy powder
pearly ivory frosty flaky 
artist white canvas 

frozen arena
frigid chilled air nipping ears
frost ice-cold seating

snow summits
air vapors foggy mist
below zero temps

ice frost windowsill
snowy ivory chalk mounds
cast blank white canvas

Premium Member The Blind Hound
I know that if I ever do lose it,
It will be your fault.
I have acid stirring in my belly.
I'm a blind hound,
Running from the hitting stick.
Then there's you, the prosaic flower.
Your unimaginable summits.
Award winning expectations.
Higher than clouds.
I aspire to win your admiration,
Greedy for your grace.
I'm talking about popcorn, of course....

Premium Member Credit To Rio for single men only
If you've never been to Rio
Then you've never lived your life
If you go there when you're single
You would leave there with a wife
There the mountains rise like sunset 
As their summits piece the sea
Yes, I remember  Rio
And what it's meant to me
It will take you by the hand
It will set your sad soul free
But your heart will be imprisoned
For all eternity

Mountain Waterfall
Hey mountain waterfall is tumbling,
 it dandles on the rocks
 and pale-faced maid
 carried, would faint on the hands.
Hey breaking is the foehn spruces,
 snatching is on the peaks.
 Its arm is swift and strong,
 but summits will withstand it.
Hey trickling is a drizzle.
 It's spreading to the huts
 in mist is rising to the clouds -
 far-flung is to the sky....

She Never Hears
Through pain,
Through sorrow,
Through a lonely nights tears.

No warmth,
No love,
Only cold lifeless fear.

The locking
Of a door,
Sends your heart on a deep plummet.

In the darkness,
In the room,
Your anger summits.

Somewhere not far,
She plays a computer game,
Ignoring your screams of her name.

For in this horror,
In this nightmear,
You know it will always be the same.

She never hears anything....

Premium Member TWIN PEAKS
I cannot think of mountains
without thinking of mine.
And how nice they are to climb.

Perched on the top
the view is sublime
of that valley of mine.

The Twin Peaks I call them.
Sharp summits on top.
Hold on...don't stop.

So smooth are the sides.
If you let go you might slide
down into that valley.

So lush and overgrown
you might never get home.
Forever lost and alone.

If God
If God is the Ocean, 
  are we water droplets and tidal waves?
If God is the Sun,
  are we light beams and shadows?
If God is the Desert,
  are we grains of sand and sandstorms"
If God is the Moon,
  are we moonbeams and darkness?
If God is the Mountain,
  are we the rocky paths and the summits?
If God is the Wind,
  are we spring breezes and thunderstorms?
If God is Eternity?
  are we the Now?

Premium Member Sun and Moonlit Dreams
Mysterious and majestic mountains, mellow as gold,
At the sun soaked summits, sweeping clouds enfold,
Basking in brilliant beauty, beneath a boundless blue,
Welcoming willing wonder, while ages wandered by you.

Picturesque, predominant, and so pleasingly permanent,
Enormous, exotic, exhilarating, exalted time testament! 
Inspiring imaginative, impassioned, illimitable dreams,
Like the lovely lazy ones, of moonlit lustrous gleams....

Moon's Spoon of Peanut Butter
Crackling mischief waxes every new moon; Moon, the plaited devil 
three harvests blue, summits the everest shelf to scrape out crunchy
goodness, and scurries away, with exasperated steps in tow.

to unbelonging
was becoming a method
exploring the path.
In the backyard unpleasant fumes
were rising.

Nocturnal swoop of enlightment,
clearly becomes a festival
of yellow death.
Who was hiding the truth?

Flowering of the thought in sky
ripens cessation of grief.
Slopes and summits,
bring tears in eyes.

Solace of ancestral home
was gone. Bold ceilings were hung by ungodly fears.
Wet hands lift the body of past,
classical future was gleaming slowly....

In the kingdom of Pu’u ‘O’o,
domicile of Pélé
summits of molten stone
crowned with ginger blossoms, orchids, hibiscus,
the stone hips of the wells of fire were skirted with towering fronds;
the ground moved
with rhythmic steps,
Pélé’s Thunder drums.

Joy poured down the rock
red, yellow, glowing-gloss rolling like honey
over the edge of the cliff,
turning the surf, the tide, the brine into clouds.

Premium Member To Calliope, Chief of the Nine Muses
My muse sighs and leaves me unwell
     and cuckolds me like faithless love
as if she's ne'er my god or belle,
afflatus or creative breath 
     who came from the summits above
to save me from poetic death!
"Why go, O Calliope!?" I yell;

her leaving brings about such woe
and inexpressible sorrow
     that's too profound, too deep to tell:
I pray to Zeus I'll never know
     this Melancholia of hell!
My muse sighs and takes leave of me,—
I yell, "Why go, O Calliope!?
