In a Lonely Garden
In a lonely garden there' s a shrine
where upon a rough hewn stone is writ:
“GOD IS LOVE.”

The devoted supplicants make wail,
water the flowers, feed with crumbs
the sacramental dove.

A priest, decrepit, feeds the holy fire,
rakes the embers of the holy hearth.

Premium Member Ireland - a divided island part one
  born under the sea, an irresistible force
  two bodies reluctantly embrace, shunting, shifting, tectonic drifting
  alongside the southern Iapetus Ocean
  equatorial deep-time child of Laurentia and Avalonia

Indigo's Child

Indigo's child
lives in turquoise walled
creativity.
Her temple roof of cobalt glass
slashed with aquamarine
radiates peace with purpose
steel dolphin joyfulness
as sun's waves reflect
hourly hues, seasons shades
ever-changing.
Supplicants knock on ultramarine door
to hear pure lapis truth.
A lucky few sip tea from cups royal
As powder eyes...Read More

Exile in Ptolemy's house
Safe, at long last,
behind closed, locked doors and windows,
behind heavy, hanging, purple drapery:
plush, pellucid, subterranean refuge.

Far from the proverbial maddening crowd,
out of sight: a dimly lit room, bathed in
soft, golden reflections.  In the centre of 
the room: a single,...Read More

Two fires
In a lonely garden is a shrine
where upon a rough hewn stone is writ:
“GOD IS LOVE.”

the sacramental dove.

SICKENED PRIDE
The country is painted red
By the hand that seals our fate
The pain requires of a poet a sad poem
The hope of the supplicants
Is sickened by the festering ulcer of infamy
The absence of civility
Nourishes the greed
That thins our pride
Our lungs are...Read More

Precarious Miracle
For all that it is worth was contained in a single droplet of thought
in symbiotic deliverance

or find it’s way in chaotic course
discover the enchanted spells of Icarus

And in form so complex present itself

Premium Member It Is a Rose Sprung
es ist ein 'Rose' entsprungen

Just outside the city walls ringed in roses,
Rosenfriedhof, Rose Cemetery blooms,
fairest in the Fatherland.

Leaven cakes iced in concrete or royal brass
pan the gravel paths; the husks which lie here, 
no longer have a care, no longer...Read More

Ghosts of the Sun Dance-Part 1
Ghosts of the Sun Dance

1. The Path

A quest dating back through our history
Surpassing the flesh, a spiritual path
Human endurance, road to mystery
Dark trail winding through the gardens of wrath

It echoes through me, this deep ambition
Half century of miles, lifetime compressed...Read More

Manifold Blessings



Shadows stretch, and hungrily


they gobble up the cold and homeless,


Joe and Mary shiver, searching 


street fronts for some sign of meekness.





Mary's pregnant, Joe is jobless,


faith and hope belie their plight,


all is dark, but wait, a flicker


penetrates the inky night.

A Prayer to St Duloxetine
St. Duloxetine, thee we beseech
Our chemical plaster to fill the breach

Between raw emotions and hard reality
Our primal instincts and plastic society

Give to your supplicants a brightened scene
With norepinephrine, serotonin, dopamine

So traffic jams hum not so loud
Mindless tasks morph to puffy...Read More

Congregation
Gathered in service 
we face our own solitudes, 
sharing perspectives 
we find common ground

where fellowship whips desolation;
supplicants, worshipers, 
what's in a name? 
union's the game. 
In health and in hardship we struggle, 
together we...Read More

The Budding Soul re-post

The shadows from his younger days shake his resolve, 
and make a mockery of time 'til time be lost 
to moments of bewilderment, ne'er to evolve, 
they bounce and bluster errantly, much to his cost.

Water
Sunlight trickles through stained glass windows.
She kneels, a little apart from her fellows
who also seek salvation in water.
Her gray hair slips from her circumspect braid,
and her Sunday-best thrift-store garb
stands out because it doesn't.
Shaking fingers tap the rail
Nervous feet twitch as...Read More

Setting sun anointing the temple spires with beams of gold
Monkeys scamper along the walls calling out their joy in living
Supplicants pray that each day will end with such inspiration

Sunrise In My Lover's Arms
Faraway images
Clearer impressions
Calico kittens
Conferring intentions...
Wistful companions
Abundantly joyous,
Singing reditions
Of Eventide's chorus.

Lastly, the supplicants
Soft eyed in questioning
Whisper endearments
With symmetry's blessing.

All of the questions
And some of the answers
Flower together
Surpassing imagining...

Softly and softly,
In quiet compassion
Embracing the dreamers
In wrappings of laughter
With butterfly rainbows
To use now...Read More

Magic Biscuit
It’s a Magic Biscuit
Tender, flaky
Round of course
Golden contours
Awaiting hungry, stretching lips

The Magic Biscuit
Answers many riddles
And asks a few, too…
“How will I taste?”
“Will my flavor and texture
please you?”
“Are you thankful for me?”

All to be revealed in due time
To those deemed worthy…
