Yields In Yellows

Signs in marigold
with a daffodil accent
hints a yarrow drawl,
laughed I a sunflower be
saffron breaths refrain in gold.

From two dimension hands,which closed to me,see two pieces bruised faces 
Fall  blowed mantra like the spots and
Lip of woman dressed black next 
the black smokes
That,fly behind of that woman 
Sometime, Like place one upon another the mirrors,woman's images...Read More

Magnificent scents filled the air
I had a sunflower crown in my hair
I must say the occassion was rare
But every person was a pair
Which seemed unfair
For my left hand ring finger laid bare.

If I Were A Sunflower
I am a yellow sunflower when our paths cross
I only wanted you to smile brightly as the sun
But you still decided to pluck the rose
Without realizing it is the one
Who made you bleed with its thorn
Who made you regret that...Read More

Oil Production
Peanut oil begins from under the soil,
Sunflower oil is distilled by the boil.
We use these to cook,
I thought then I shook.
By gosh! How do they make baby oil?...Read More

Premium Member The Crows Come
When I sprinkle the black sunflower seeds
in my garden, for my songbirds
The crows come in, and land on their knees
They cover the yard and caw their truth

Pretending they are ravens, 
I can endure their ugly banter
Bringing thoughts of Poe into...Read More

Premium Member The Casualness Of Casualties

In the intimate interlace of chance and fate, in the ultimate interplay of time and place, and with the consummate checkmate of my human dignity, all that is -- is over, in the stormy, swarming space of mere moments.

My World
My love frisks the ground
With a white cane
Owing to its poor sight
Its patience has stumbled
Its kindness stammered
And slipped.

But, Your beauty is my lens
Your strength is a beaming lust
Your lips as amplified as a yellow sunflower
and embellished like a vibrant lily

Filled Up to the Core
I feel empty inside
Don't know exactly why
I just want to hide
Somehow close my eyes and die

Somehow let go and die
I wonder to myself, why?
I feel like a worthless fly
I just feel the need to cry

Sweet, yet bitter and harsh as...Read More

Walking along the path to school
Wondering how others thought of her, 
whether good or ill.

Oh, she wanted to be thought smart in math.
But no~ for her 'twas a blood bath!
Well, perhaps I'll be witty,said she.
Everyone likes a laugh.

Ah, dearest lass!

Look carefully at this tree

As yesterday what was dead and burnt

Will tomorrow birth a sunflower 

And shower charred bark with colour 

Oh Mother how i hate the storm clouds

They keep the rainbows at bay

And always over stay there welcome

Oh Mother

Endless sunflower fields 
Rhythmically swaying in the wind
Like lazy ocean wave stretches 
To the distant line of horizon
Touching the edge of the sky
Melting into hot noon brilliance
Boiling all shades of yellow into
One burning brightness of sun

He is walking fast towards...Read More

Blue and Yellow
Everything seemed
So natural
Nothing irregular
Look how far
We've come
Look how far
We've gone
The sand
Falls quickly
Glitter in
Its wake
The neon lights
Creating rainbows
On the ceiling
Wanted to reach
Still want to reach
The blue fireworks
Not quite there yet
Two years later
Seems like
Distance and time
Took it too far
Still remember
The feeling
Of the...Read More

Be a daffodil  amongst the dandelions

Bloom while others wither
Be a petal on a rose
Be a wish on a daisy

Be a lily on a pond
Be the sweetest scent

Premium Member Chalice in Light of the Day


I drink from the chalice
in light of the day,
a goblet of crystal
on endless display

Where amethyst rainbows
sing songs in the sand
and sunflower fragrances
walk hand in hand

When happiness touches
each mountain I climb
of heart beat concertos
in three quarter time

As clouded sky warriors

Lovely softness in days of pure sunshine.
Kind inner beauty delicate and fine.
She lit up the garden and gave it hope.
Perky sunflower on a little slope.

Farmer smiles doing his daily chores
Just left the missus who is washing floors.
God’s morning creatures wallow...Read More

What is gold?
It is light-play on a warm summer’s day,
the sun filtering down upon Gaia’s face,
warming her children with it’s embrace.

Gold is tangerine clouds reflecting the sun’s face
while flowers refract it back into space.
Gold is warm like puppies, too

Premium Member Sunflower Song
When clouds above dance to our song,
when stars are birthed from arbors strong,
we wish the days were extra long;
we sing our song, we sing our song.

Oh mother moon, smile down on us,
we raise voice in respectful trust,
to celebrate the twilight...Read More
