The Old Unemployed Man or a Suburban Poem
His oars (mind, arms, and legs)
were insufficient as propellers to earn a living.
In the underground´s nasty passageway;
or was in his life´s nasty passageway?
Anyway! There, he, like an imbecile, sat,
another torn mendicant, holding up his hand to indifferent passers-by, 
asking for...Read More

I speak my hidden angry GodVoice
and my sad suffering supplicant Goddess
listening choice

And these feel counter-balanced
within shared robust HappyGod
speaking through widely effective
boldly multiculturing voices
and/or deep learning health-conscious GreenGoddess
effluent flows
of nature's silent 
non-violent 
communion whispers,

Inviting soul songs for slow-dance circling
drumming
thrumming
strumming
plumbing rhythmic muses

Broken Faith

This covenant when the world was made
written in the corpuscle of our veins
all of paradise we could claim
and give to Eden a planets name
and there we held in perpetuity
a contract written with the ink of stars
and there we beheld the...Read More

Empty Pots of Sadness Stew

Follow your brain and nurture strain and pain beyond measure.

Follow the path your heart suggests
Unless keen you are to embrace the path the brain digests

Leading to a destiny
Ensconced in a monumental mutiny

Beautiful 2 --- My Harbor and Sea

	Gentle waves of raven locks lap against the shore of her skin,
	Soft, suntanned arms beckon the dusky light on the horizon,
	Angelic radiance to her form.  Cleansing sin,
	A dying shadow, behind, fading slowly as the night summons.

	Twilight in her eyes,...Read More

Not by Love

And through veins of ice
should outrage seek
the recompense of love
and a broken heart
suffer then the vagaries of vengeance

Weep
for a tourniquet is set about thy throat
and all words of supplicant
unheeded
drove this tenderness
to violence

And ate in battered disgust
the filth of it’s brimming...Read More

They come from afar
through seasons bitten by frost
across a mountain's pass deep in snow
shout they all, " holy holy save us god"
"wash our sins away, free us from the damned”.

Premium Member Supplicant at His Feet
In the shade of the celestial covert,

quite inviting, resonating a flow through the earth comfort.

The vibrating strings deliver nature’s music

surge, a sink, and rise medieval lyric

fluidity of soft floating harp sound.

Softest of feathers, lightly wound,

outpouring motion of hovering rare coloured

approached me in Siwa as a supplicant soldier, 
he was so young yet so wet with war blood
32 years old and the most powerful king on the planet, 
Alex entered my chamber unarmed and unassuming

Impossible Love

Lap of fancy fills with flowers,
Just to think of her tonight,

This is not an idle talk,
I'm in good humor tonight.

I would not reveal my secrets,
To enchanting eyes of hers,

But she took away my power,
I could not resist tonight.

Beauty's garden I'm...Read More

Supplicant
"And help to cure them" 
The religious devotee prays
"Let them know peace
Throughout their days"

Head bowed and hands clasped
In pious supplication
She feels the love
Of holy exultation

Her God is her reason,
Her sustenance, her very breath
Her past and her future
Her life, her eventual...Read More

Chameleon
Hie, little girl, run from the fear,
'til you find the next nest to change.
And avoid all the mirrors that reveal your truth,
as the chameleon you'll elicit your range.

A meandering brook winds past
Branches sway in a gentle breeze
Praising the lord God unsurpassed
Like a supplicant on their knees

In homage to azure skies
Heavenward the sapling reaches
Awaiting its God to baptise 
While the black Cockatoo preaches

I Woke Up

I woke up this morning to nothing, 
Emptiness crowded my lonely room, 
The sound of silence was deafening, 
I was blinded by the rays of gloom, 
(Just a dress rehearsal for the tomb)

loved only by her mad mad mind
with a clean beauty to her that shines
the sour bread is bitter wine

tidal pool of days end

Premium Member Old People, Like Treasure
Old people, like treasure, don’t come empty handed,
Their time here, their wisdom, like gold on display,
An empathic spirit who mines without stealing,
Will find that there’s much to be taken away.

No man can their keen sense...Read More

She really never chose me as a friend.

(‘Or any other, ’ she once claimed to me) .

Themselves upon her hospitality

Old Elms in the Snow

It snows this day
upon Your work.
The elms seem sad,
their bark wrinkled fingers
aimlessly appoint. 

Piped in ermine, winter
ballerina limbs
take permanent position,
frozen supplicant or
petrified pirouette.

Winter grows still
my God.

broken man
What goes up
Must One day fall

A man with no hope
A man on a path of destruction
A man who caused his own demise

A sorry sight is he who has fallen
Off his selfish pedestal
And landed on his face
Now broken and dejected
He is...Read More
