"Dead Crush"

Oh uplift me woman
if we were to have a 
conversation would 
bees fly out of your mouth
or just mewling, simpering 
watered-down honey
not so pristine, just soft
and somewhat 
ingratiatingly tainted
you ply uplifting
romantic notions
like an air raid

something not
of the Irish sort
for what it's worth

for me to raise
my glass and say

The story I told my son in bedtime : Orange


Beneath orange peels of the sky
Orange Juices are falling like rain

People are drinking without restraint
Some kept that juices with cups

Naked bodies are dancing
As they felt happy

Then, rain of orange juices stopped
People ,too, fell asleep.

God has given mankind complete freedom of choice,
and walks by our side through valleys and peaks.
But when a Nation is closing its ears to his voice,
does it any longer matter how loudly HE speaks?

Amidst reality’s kaleidoscopic might
My vision needs faith light
For color virtues-right
Admitting blurry sight…
To enjoy special child’s delight
Soaring with him in blissfulness-height.

Of all the men who gambled there on the hill that day,
I felt I’d be the winner when I began to play.

When all the lots were cast there, the...Read More

A fever swept across the land of going after gold.

The cry came through the camps and...Read More

God's Love Story

God reached down one day
To all us sinners who had strayed so far away;
He sent His Son, the price of sin for us to pay;
He gave His blood as there in agony He lay--
He loved us so.

Sweetly sing with the heart of praise
A melody which finds the grave
To soothe the trepidatious soul.
Assured creation captures whole
The deeds of life if not forsaken
Are the only true salvation.

Yet edifice, empire and grand design
All whither when held to the face...Read More

My soul is embraced

My soul in the darkness it did abide,
The essence of my life slipping between this life and the next.

On the fringe of suicide and contemplating death.

I see a small light in the darkest time.
I reached out for help and my...Read More

Etymologists hate poetry -
I have that on the best authority -
Of course the bloody rhyme's not perfect!

Were not supporters of our noble art,
They had us beaten from the...Read More

Family and friends

And when they ask me

‘Yes I’m okay’
But that’s not true

Chiron was the son of Philyra and Titan,
He was created half-human,
While his back-half was equine,
Best-loved of the centaurian line,
Abandoned by his mother in all haste,
His form regarded by her with distaste,
But although his future had seemed dim,
The god Apollo adopted...Read More

Making the oceans dirty.
