New Poems

In the beginning
When humanity began to walk
The Creator would come down
Just to talk
...with man

Time passed
And possibilities began to arise
Everything permissible
Except that one, where man dies

Well, it happened
And really, not that bad, it seemed
Man lived and had children
Without a Creator who...Read More

Jed the horse thief was a bit of a dope
Stole a pretty horse and tried to elope
Folk declared him a horse thief
And for giving them much grief
They dangled him at the end of a rope...


A deep sea diver called...Read More

He trusted that writer’s block was just a lull and searched for his pen

Ink had dried for some time and his worn mind scratched for words

A lullaby or even a tristich would do if an epic eluded his triste drought

Fingertip Tracings Upon My Skin
Sunlight surfaced at the breach of dawn
It climbed salty rungs to emerge from the sea
When fully risen, what had been spawned?
A molten fireball cast from the dragon's breath,
a firey yawn exhaled in languorous flight
searing tangerine flames across the horizon

Daylight drifted...Read More

Salt Lake
On my first trip to the outback across the endless plains,
I saw a harsh and hungry land in pastel coloured stains.
There are more secrets out there, than sun and shifting sand -
It would take more than my lifetime to ever...Read More

Premium Member INSULT--
scornful,  abusive
you speak,  treat with disrespect 
giving cause offense

rude cause of my face
called me names, other than James
defame militate

it’s cause my skin brown
bad-mouth cast aspersions on
this went on and on 

nineteen seventy
disparage, jailed in small town
cause my step-brother

Appliance Colors
Looking at appliances
(My fridge is on the fritz)
I noticed there are trends to which
Each company commits.

For kitchen items mostly come
In silver stainless steel,
A modern look that to my taste
Does not have much appeal.

I like refrigerators
That are plain and simply white,
Though...Read More

Turtle Island
See-through turquoise waters call
It must be a holiday we forgot
Sidled up on laps against the shore
Like two old friends just holding hands
After hurricanes turn from rage to calm

Tortoise tracks like hieroglyphics scratched 
Etched signs of tiny creatures over time ...Read More

She’d kept the pewter dusted and displayed
since 1959.
A verdigris had leached out of the urn nevertheless
She had been hard on him, had forgiven little,
but felt much closer now.
The television became a corner coffin,
its screen a penumbra she often spoke to.
She...Read More

Breath of Love
Breath of Love

You Surfaced from a dream
Love has arisen me
Like a full moon beaming 
Through the blind
My heart caught-unprepared
Pulsing, pounding sensations
From mere scent of you
Love breathes the air of light
As the orchid bloom thrives
Though when your sustenance departs
Even for a...Read More

(This is a universal story of mother’s sacrifice for their children, be it material, emotional, or intellectual.)

It was during the Korean War
Father was taken away by the Communists
Months ago
He never returned

Mother and I were left alone
In an island as refugees
Without...Read More

The whips of smoke was thickly spiraled all over my face,
 I stood at the shrine, rather the church,
 The eerie and somber silence within the cave scourged me,
 As the nocturnal owls spoke cabalistic monologues,
 Ushering in a hint...Read More

Knee Grow Love
Held to Her chest, silly noises and funny faces made you happy
Gripped in His hand, temper tantrums and meltdowns reared your independence
Your fatigue and fussiness paints with such an unconscionable art-ness
All the while We were growing yet teaching you affinity

Pains of wasted years
She was a beauty Queen,
Flying and walking on the smooth roads,
On the streets and restaurants,
Beer parlours and churches,
Like an angel from Venus,
Self actualized
To make her the bone of their bones
Their flesh.
That was when her beauty had trapped many men like...Read More

there were days full of so much weeping I couldn’t see
months of wondering why she would so easily flee.
I would lay on the bed holding her bear; swollen eyes-
wearing her leather bracelet and old torn brown hoodie.

With a luscious fullness
It emerged
Striking nooks and corners
With it penetrating forcefulness
Enveloping the evolving clouds
Concealing the flustering desire
Shadowing doubts then guilt
As l muse to ponder
Plundering the doubts
As it surfaced with a formidable chunk
Pounding the chunking doubts
Again and again
With precise willfulness
