where is everybody
the streets are bare
so eerily apocalyptic
a post nuclear scene
winter lingers ~ in sunless crisis
a dreadful silence lurks
thick heavy clouds droop nigh
summer may not come
we may never recover
is that a crocus ‘neath that tree?

Premium Member False Dawn Day
Away from heart and hand 
With smiles loving embracing

Why dream I of fertile flowered valleys
And chatoyant streams that lie outside soul’s watchful door?

Why not flowering here
With barefoot wading bringing tingling delights?

Perhaps just yearned for foolish feelings, you say 
Sighing within...Read More

It has been said you are all just bricks in the wall -
confined and coffined in concrete, your moments
magnified in mortar; souls stone-stippled.

But listen: you are as flowers, individuals efflorescing -
shy eyes of violets, fragile forget-me-nots
unforgettable in pews of blues,...Read More

now sunless days on automatic pilot
skies from greys to blues to violet
feigning composure while on edge
he dances nonchalantly on a ledge

disguised tears of a clown
smile turned to wretched frown
behind makeup his eyes glazed over
at the sight of daisies and smell of clover
in summer fields last saw his love
flew off to heaven she gentle dove
his heart in pieces shattered
remembering the only...Read More

Consumed under infinite sunless night; 
Its uncountable fixed flickering stars,
With tendrils tender love and a lullaby, 
Mid quiet indulgent heaven, it dost sings. 

Swell of explosive unsated love seeks
Warm wisp embrace, of thy intimate whole.

I love the beauty of a new spring day-
   its early morning silence- but for birds
      that tweet and flutter, flying with dry straw
or thread to line their beautiful new nests.

Ralph Waldo Emerson: “A woodland walk, a quest for river-grapes, a mocking thrush, a wild rose or rock-living columbine, salve my worst wounds.”

of what meaning, this scrawl?

comforted by a columbine.

dawn explosion of color ~
angel’s and flower’s
spectacular yellows, pinks,
cerulean blue ~
still charcoal gray sky
if i look outside, my eyes
depressed by a sunless sketch.

As I glance out the open window restless, 
The merit fragrant scent of thy love doth please. 
Throughout the shadowed dim lit room breathless
A lullaby, it sings, mine heart to appease.

Through the sunless hours thy dream or endless.
Your presence summons...Read More

Premium Member The Air I Inhale My Lullaby Tale

As a child, under the infinite sunless night;
I used to lie on a bed of thick grass
in the front yard just to stare up at night
and its uncountable flickering stars.
The cool breeze tendrils would caress
me with tender love and a...Read More

Premium Member A world without poetry
An empty look of sadness
That never bears a smile,
A malnourished mind
Aching to utter its voice,
A baby’s cry missing
The sweet tune of lullaby.

A dark moonless night
Reminiscing of shining stars,
A pensive gloomy dawn
Rising on sunless sky
Yearning lift of marigold arc
Sprinkled in magenta.

Sunless octagonals slide right 
Burn the unimportant 
Powder its ashes carefully 
Stopping only when the task is done 
When fornever claims it ;

But what of your fears
Those secret torments that weaken you so ?

They are important 
Impossible to erase
Always there

Premium Member Perpetual Symphony of Spears and Daggers
he was like autumn
all around him 
slowly died

i guess i was like autumn too
but adapted to blossom
embracing the moods

it's raining again
i foresee thunder 
rocking sunless skies
with lightening
dazzling duller days

heaven's tear drops plummet
like a perpetual symphony 
of spears and daggers

The Great White Sea, I walk upon,
exists in my mind of darkness.
It’s there one moment, then it’s gone,
this unknown form of wickedness.

The dismal night, the sunless day,
explains unnatural movements.
The creatures hidden, they do stay,
until the lite from God, is sent.

The Compass
I was once a full-on novice surfing the waves,
Seas were rough and choppy here and there.
I could not bear the challenges I was going to face,
But you were by my side guiding me when and where.

The clouds have their day
to release what’s pent within
no longer able to hold the mask
of sunny days meant to last

the halcyon all pursue
a status quo for the abused
idyllic for the quick glimpse
when inquires seek portends 

even as the coming storm

A coincidence
Translated by Przemyslaw Musialowski 6/13/2019

Later usually arguing
over yet
uneaten grain
tweet, tweet! 
above the gray-brown field

of the sunless day
in the hat of fear
husks for lunch

earlier usually unstable 
steps back covered with dust 
under the roof
of non-existent home

without a cap forgotten
- a coincidence.

Daddy's Girl
Only a father could light up her face
only a father could bring her joy.
Tired as he was, as he plodded to the door
courage stern within.

Not old enough to do better
not old enough to stifle her cries
the day she woke up

i'm in prison
no chance of
a prism or early

it seems like
years or at least
a month or a week
but maybe just a few
days that have passed

looking at
the X's on
my wall i
etched by
myself and

lost my time
lost time and
again losing
