His Woes in Hues
An artist at his worst
Never recognized at his best
Drew of his sunrises until
The sun begins to set.
Painted his oceans blue
Only to have others taint
Them with rue,
Alas, scribbled his thoughts
Of incomprensible grey,
In a bright deceitful array....Read More

Gentle hands
Speak softly like you where walking on hot coals
Take the heat of your words
Use the language of compassion
Wish nothing but happiness 
And your footsteps on this earth 
Will not be washed away 
Speak to me only of good
Of sunrises and...Read More

She Wakes In Sunrises
When the sunrise sips on an open sky,
She is skipping by.
I've not ever heard her sweet song before but she was there when dawn birds arose, 
With a sweet lullaby.
A babies cry was never sweeter.
And even though the duet of...Read More

He was an early riser on a ship bound for Japan,
The ocean was calm as a pond he waited for
Glorious sunrise.

How many sunrises will I see,
how many poems will I write

How many Spring’s to then deceive

He was seen in a fog of velvet,
And clothed in mists of satin.
His life the stuff of legends.
A dweller of enchanted waters!
His beginning had not a future,
Yet his past was without end,
Though steeped in the unknown-
Deep in the soul of...Read More

Frozen in Motion
It's damned and it's free.
 It's torture and it's passion.
 It's you. All things to be.
 It's hypocrisy and the attitude of similar fashion.
 It's the cliches and the daily platitude defying the laws of attraction.
 It's you.
 The midnights...Read More

~Stroll Down His Memory Lane~

As I strolled down his memory lane
I laughted, I cried, I even blushed
I rode on his sunsets and sunrises
At times leaving my face flushed

Along his many paths and roads
Merged t'ween love and sorrow

One that poses a perpetual question;
 "Should I stay or should I go ?"
A quest unremarkable in its simplicity.
