Colonel Orenthal Thaddeus Simpson

A gentleman of confidence and ambition, whose impression superimposed upon the common folk, a speech concerning absolute existence and the result of it. A self-built and well-constructed plane is valueless if it is without an engine, wings...Read More

Jasmine petals fall same as ashes from burnt incense,
Superimposed the demised who lays in hallowed rest,
A jar and vase on a marble stone, near a picket fence,
A man of the Buddhist faith who fought with the best,
Died for his country,...Read More

The children of the world are born naked

Historians are mere men.
They sail in the high seas of people
To catch a glimpse at the elusive whale of peace.

Yes, History is not just,
It is the poor outline of the book of Life.

Everyday historians climb their intellectual mountains
And observe their...Read More

The Curtain of Pain Fell Upon Us

As the curtain of pain fell upon us
  Yet it covered nothing for me
Each person outside still peered inside

It persisted, It literally...Read More

Remembering “Stuff”

Some memories, become asphyxiated by time,
Others perish quickly, or retreat into the regions of non-recall;
That leaves only a few,
With a faint glow superimposed in our minds;
Each is a souvenir of a recollection past,
And some will remain until we breathe...Read More

Shining stars confetti the night
creating a magical sight
as a molten moon starts to flow
through the blackness of outer space. 
Within night’s velvety embrace
Luna’s light has a golden glow
while shooting stars unzip the sky
visible to the naked eye.
And it appears that...Read More

Thinking there was something going wrong,
It was situation of praise.
Something that couldn`t let black communities be on craze,
But emotionally, puts smile on the entire world face.
Urging and expanding the number of observers through unfailing phase.
On the street, I see passers...Read More

Hippocampus saddled in the vast sea, one of God’s superimposed dreams.
In miniature form these seahorses be, an aquatic burst of genius it seems.

Hippocampus in old Flossie form, spotted from the Scottish shores.
A frightful nightmare, not the norm,...Read More

A Beast of Chirality
I blink my eyes and then the world is gone. 

Open once again to see some peons upon the lawn.

They came to hear the Lion yawn and swipe a wife by dawn.

That's why I keep my pride and believe,

It's a term coined
for the times

propelled by actions
ceremoniously indulged

whimsically by the populace.
It's growing daily,

masses in tune
bubbling to surface

rife with rebellion.
Senseless conventions

imposed by the machine,
discrepancies enlightened

with blinding rays
of rationality

superimposed upon circumstances.
Keeping up the fight

against all odds
baffling to mindfulness

as they scramble to...Read More

I put myself 
Between and under 
Love's on the left, Father 
Sunshine and thunder 

I put myself 
Between and under 
Love's on the right, Son
No waste, no squander

I put myself 
Between and under
Spirit's above
A pure white dove

All that is love

The noses are broken off

Cerulean Pearl
As I breathe, I hope
for a better tomorrow
As I blink, I can cope
with the promise I borrow

In through the nose
and out through the mouth
Palimpsest superimposed
Arrow pointed south

My mind is scattered
like seeds on a field
Insulted, yet flattered
When it is congealed

Drifting through the millennium
to a world
of surprises and delight

You think about
what the future beholds
beyond the remedial

circumstances driven by
perseverance, thoughts
scholastically superimposed

upon realities drudgery
when you understand
it's all whimsy

upheld by rules, laws
etched into meanderings
circulating the realm

beyond your wildest imagination
you drift through
turmoils of preponderance

Caring and empathetic heart that made her unique,

in the waterfall 
of random thoughts
spherical occurrences

Imagine if you will, squares of light

And these twin portals defy the night
where dreams and reality embrace.

seamlessly push the darkness away.

From Beginning to End Haiku

So must I ask you
Have you written a haiku
To put on our tree.

Spirit on me as I dosed
Now free from all foes.

Leaves did fall from tree
Now we have humility
In land of the free.
