A chill ...
Not on skin - to marrow
If but for the frigid air
A horrid pattern would trace my cheek
Though not nearly as horrid
As the one that faces me upon the glass
It is quite beautiful in shape
Hemmed with frost crystals, like...Read More

I Know Some Of Life's Sorrows, Fate Decrees Everlasting

I saw seven dying newborn white horses
I stumbled upon seventeen darken courses
I ran through twenty-seven ancient burnt temples
I found love may be hard, even when life is simple.

I sat at thirty-seven broken...Read More

The Art of the Fugue

The art of what? Never heard one?
You will soon if you read on.
A fugue is a musical form,
in times past quite the norm,
more so in the time of Bach
who raised it to a mighty art.
Here, then, is how to write

More than just a Name
People were in bondage, and so He came.
Rescuing people from the devil’s game.
He came casting out demons, and healing every manner of disease.
But His time on earth, wasn’t a simple breeze.
For He would be falsely accused.
Beaten, battered, and badly bruised.

In this bedroom I type out
“Amazon” where are the socks,
And then, and then, a press,
And “chocolate” and a dog leash,
And oh, yes, the simple things 
To remember,

Here on this day of rain,
Emails of pain, will they make the grade,
So many...Read More

Imagine if you noticed a deterioration in your sight
How would that suddenly and forever change your life
Happily, if it's just cataracts
A simple procedure corrects
Laser treatment is worth the inconvenience at any price

 Eyes looking down in the morning light?
Do you still hear the sound of an angel’s voice –
 Can you hear the sound of angel wings?

The Gift

Some people say Christmas in this present day
Wanders lost
In ads and tinsel carelessly strung
Upon an artificial bough;
Some people say the Christmas spirit
Lives no more -
The simple Christ Child’s birth
Coldly mocked by glittering ads
For diamond rings and robot toys;
Some say...Read More

A bird blares in the garden,

for those withered dream.
Oh,winter comes,he doesn't fly,
He just want to be a quietist

His appreciation of things simple was very well-known
A misunderstood man

His ideas were questioned but they're basically my own

You light the fire, then play the victim.
It's not my fire, yet you let it burn.
Rage and pain drive you insane,
creating a parody of hypocritical lies.
Judgemental eyes ignite in fumes,
ignorant to another man's shoes.

Silent emotions
They say he shows no emotions,

"You don't have to say you love me"* -
It is quite unnecessary,
For your love for me lies
In the depths of your eyes,
It suffuses your face

In the softness of speech 
Only my ears can reach:

You Shut My Crazy Out
You Shut My Crazy Out

You shut my crazy out,
and something in my chest slips.
Something in my chest tightens,
Something eerie sweeps my brain
and tickles me in the back of my neck. 

Who are you?

Onion is crying
Without peeling
Without cutting
Only sitting 
On the shelf
Prices to soar
Without uproar
Maximum this year
Minimum next year
Unable to know
Why prices grow?
Sometimes to throw
Sometimes to borrow
So much confusion
Or the market's illusion
Farmer in delusion
Customer's suffocation
Problem to solve
Still unsolved
Of simple pricing
Without price hiking

Dear Santa,

How you doing,

and maybe something twice
