In Fancy's Space
I wonder . . . do you know where poets go
whenever they sit down and start to write?
I think the answer’s easy. We should know
it’s where one’s thoughts and feelings can take flight!

Celebrating flow of life
Within the pause of each heartbeat within
In the void of polarity exchange
We feel love calling as bliss ignition
Spacial stillness arousing stirrings strange
Consciousness expansion invisible
Entwined with all of divine creation
Nestled in our hearts love...Read More

appreciation, lost love,
I was a rose cored inside your bosom
a verity of truth so seldom seen

Where do poets go
Poets may pen to pine, preach, praise and proclaim
sapient and sapid some stir the soul,
some leave us high and dry and try to maim,
wonder what is their design and their goal?

art, deep, extended metaphor,
Distant jewels of night inthrall my eye.
A timeless question forms upon my mind.
Universe. Compared to you, what am I?
Inside I feel alien to humankind...
With their fruitless efforts to quantify-
eternity and shape reality.
They place limits on...Read More
Sonnet for Winds of Change
SONNET FOR WINDS OF CHANGE
Cross cirrus sky swift brush strokes paint mares' tails
Tree tops are in restless susurration,
While cumbrous clouds traverse in vapour trails
Mead grass is fanned in wild undulation
Lake face whipped to agitated motion
Fearless in the void
Rapid currents; we know not how to swim
What is at stake, is life of fleeting form
We let go, celebrating outcome grim
Vibrant in currents delightfully warm
No sooner we surrender, to the flow
The turbulent tides turn in...Read More
Peaceful Contentment of the Mind
That we could dance upon the dew dry grass
beneath a bluish sky with little cloud,
we listen to the music grand as brass
as clapping cheered us from the evening crowd.
How quickly we fatigue,...Read More
Winds of change
change, heart, love, miss
Straight out of my dreams and into my heart
Love came stepping in from out of the blue
Life changing in many ways from the start
A spark struck between two that grew and grew.
Happy were the...Read More
The Last One
A pale man lay in an old peoples' home,
And told his story to a nurse's aid.
From time to time his mind did seem to roam -
She was understanding and so she stayed.
He told of...Read More
On Botticelli's The Birth Of Venus
art, beautiful, beauty, birth,
Her eyes draw a heavenly peace to mind,
Where the green color of the sea doth dwell.
Her face is a beauteous wishing well,
Which reveals her splendor to all mankind.
Her golden hair gently blows in the wind,
Vibrant inner silence
Allowing each pulse to be felt within
Without perceptional interference
Silencing ego borne stuporous din
With the universe thus in alliance
Blockages so removed, the flow is gentle
In childlike trust, we melt into the void
In clear light, we behold...Read More
sonnet, children, christmas, faith, food,
Form: Curtal Sonnet
The year edges nearer to completion,
Another Christmas to be endured,
With the usual commercial outlay,
Including much unwise repletion
From the junk food to which we are lured;
On this overtly self-indulgent day,
To celebrate the faith's loveliest child,
Who never...Read More
