Premium Member Randomly Comes The Love
boatman on the lonely boat
rowing east to west
with the rising sun to setting down

folk-songs play a Cupid game
in the alone heart

an abode of naughtiness
builds a palace to the far
mountain of darkness

moonlight there are
under the veiling of new nymph bride

Premium Member Passionate Shore
Sea shells nestle a virgin shoreline

Caress dreams in luminous strands

Cuddle starfish and foamy desire

Of togetherness in silent breeze

Footprints take on illustrious shape

Stepping stones on two journeys

Wedded in tomorrow's drift sands

Waiving and weaving the path

A flock of seagulls mock gravity

Rise from...Read More

Starfish and Jellyfish
Exploring a new part of the sea
Starfish did not feel free

Observing different type of fish
Thinking what the F.  is this

“In this big open sea 
None of the fish live free.”

She swim , she swam
Realizing it is all a scam

When night settled over driftwood on the lonely beach

Caressed forthcoming peace in his sharp ageing mind

He stumbled on a starfish propped on glistening rock

Wetted his appetite for salt sand mud and adventure

Wonderful sea, you gracefully,

send us blue waves, on hot summer days.

Blue like the sky, your waves wave hi.

Adding numbers on fire
Stars burning in the night
Lightning chiseling basalt stones
Statues speaking to fight the tides
Thunder hunting a pruning fork
Eliot staring at Mars descent
Venus is dancing in his lap.

Volcanoes bringing mountains down
Fighting whales eating caviar
Men peddling the play of all
Exploding...Read More

Premium Member Once our lips meet


Hand in hand we walk along
this dusk bathed beach,
reaching past sandcastles and starfish,
narrowing beyond the furthest footprints
our path has imprinted in the sand,
bidding farewell to a sun 
now painting a twilight masterpiece
on a wavering horizon,
longing the cool evening’s embrace
to caress...Read More

Depths of the imagination
Let your imagination take a dive
Dismiss those voices willing it to soar,
Explore the secrets hidden to mankind
And gaze at sights you've never seen before.

Take a deep breath then silently descend;
Leave restless shores and anxious thoughts behind.
Deep in the fearless ocean's...Read More

Murmur ambience above the endless
horizon freewheel briny breeze filled sea.
Nascent movements from their shells come to be

meets the indigo sea, cap speechify

with his mighty paintbrush of perfection! 

He sculpted a garden of coral reefs

Sky: My Response To Your Diagnosis
(Written With Mariangela Canzi)

Initially, we felt abandoned
in blinding sun
but you are strong solid
like a radiant full moon.

Your hands remain warm & delicate
Like a playful starfish.

The bass and perch are both spinny-finned.
Whereas sand dollars are spiny-skinned.

Manic Expressions in Black
It's a fact: poems write themselves
on their way to creating life.
Drop a dollop of ink on a sidewalk,
a body with arms and legs emerges
from the point of impact. North,
south, east, west, every point
between. Sometimes a familiar
shape appears, like a starfish,
