stars pressed to see as we came over the hill
they are here one whispered.
I smiled at my twin; they know I said
The wind had predicted us years ago

we glided in softly, trying not to wake 
sleeping children who needed their...Read More

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

Christmas times
Frosty days and ice-still nights,
Fir trees trimmed with tiny lights,
Sound of sleigh bells in the snow,
That was Christmas long ago.
Tykes on sleds and shouts of glee,
Icy-window filigree,
Sugarplums and candle glow,
Part of Christmas long ago.
Footsteps stealthy on the stair,
Sweet-voiced carols in...Read More

You spurn ... I burn
    Your touch is aphotic nirvana

        You feign a diabolic Madonna

Santa’s Seeing Red

Late one evening up at the pole
Santa was watching TV
He shook his head as he started for bed
After seeing how people could be
All night long he tossed and turned
I guess he just couldn’t let go
He dreamed of a...Read More

I saw surreal scenes at the mall:
unhinged shoppers in a hot brawl,
a tired Santa running
away--I'm not funning!--
pursued by kids starting to squall.

I finished my shopping and fled.
The visions that danced in my head
were sugarplums? No way!
So ended my rough day.

A HOLIDAY SCORE

What to do? What to do?
The pancakes do stick!
The milk is out sick!
So the brethren of eggs
beaten and stirred
resound in yolk
a yodeling
quick
so the grandson’s lips
smack
with satisfaction
so their fingers
can pluck
their electronic guitars — 
for games like sugarplums
dance in their...Read More

Halloween night is supposed to be scary
Peopled by spooks and goblins, most of them hairy  
     But where I come from it's quite festive and merry
     Sugarplums dancing, accompanied by faeries

Enchantment of the Holiday
Warmth and passion through the air
Emanating glow
Garlands flying everywhere
Sparkling through the snow

Cherry pie and candy canes
Sugarplums in the mist
Elves are working day and night
Santa checks his list

Children's fingers sticking tightly
From the candy treats
Heat flickers through the fireplace
Carolers warm their feet

Twas the site before Christmas
and all through the place
All the poets were writing
happy thoughts to embrace

They sprinkled each stanza
with seasonal things
Like Santa Claus, candy canes,
five golden rings

All phrases were penned
with a holiday gleam
As sugarplums danced
in the midst of their dream...Read More

Imported beer and fingernails 
inflame my lyric flare, 
spark my anxious urge 
to create something quotable, 
splurge into visions of sugarplums, 
flights of pure fancy, 'til I have a

The struggle to articulate's

Could we see and hear and feel and think better
more ubiquitously and cooperatively
and inclusively
if DreamTime speaks in naturally eco-logical language
of motion as emotions
co-empathically accessible
to all RNA/DNA informated
integratively regenerative
co-arising ecosystemic Ego-programs?

In our dreams
we all speak the same language
of fear and anger,...Read More

A Visit From Santa Claus
It was Christmas Eve, not a soul made a sound,
And not so much as a mouse could be found,
The children had hung their stockings on the hearth,
As a quiet, peacefulness gently fell upon the Earth,
My family were all asleep, their...Read More

Rays of sugarplums dance in the sun.
Children’s laughter was heard and enjoyed.
We should teach them to relish life while they are young.

Lights are dancing in the twilight.
A bright smile beams from across the room.
Teenagers’ embraced as they cabaret the dance...Read More

Silent Legacy

Breathing softly in my bed,
Visions of sugarplums, in my head.
Shadows hovering in the night,
Soul awakens, to take flight.
But, I won't scream.
Told not to scream.

Rough hands groping below my head,
Rough lips seeking to be fed.
No one knows this young child's plight,
Dad's...Read More

Just as he came down, out of the fireplace,
He was cloaked in red with a fur trimmed suit,
And covered in soot from his hat to his boot,

Christmas Eve
It’s Christmas Eve
And all through the house
Not a creature is sleeping
Not even a mouse

The stockings still hanging 
Are empty and bare
It’s just a sign that dear Santa
Still hasn’t been there

Dad’s in the living room
All full of good cheer
And mum’s in...Read More

My fantasies alive go to a dead end
From reality
To fantasy
From boredom
To imaginative 
Away goes my mind
To my fantasy wonderland

I dream of not the sugarplums 
Or fairies and dragons
I dream of not just the ordinary

I dream of things out of reality 
Far from things seen in life
