Elixir of live
The receptive force and reflecting availability,
regardless of how one try to conceal it altogether.
Visible forms that nature holds in eloquence,
applicable circumstance and its reference.
Perception and darker musing values testament,
when the darker hour speaks of decadent.

Consolation of a flight
Spreading and stretching my colorful wings,
forethought's of mounting tempered skies it brings.
The wind in my face lifting me into the stream,
with a few powered moves gliding with the warm beam.
Height in spectrum of little matter and prolong vision,

drained by seven withering storms
dessert cactus and prickly thorns
littered was the winding road
that charted highways à la mode  

painted strokes of pastel hues
streaming waves of flowing blues
mountains rose that blocked the sky
eclipse when worlds defy

paths followed on cobblestones
passed fallen...Read More

An Old Photograph

I rummage through a box
of old photographs. A lady’s image
holds my eye: I hold her up to 
light filtering of a window.

The edges are frayed, a scratch
cuts across her face, a scar
now permanent yet transient,
does not disturb the hardness

of her...Read More

God granted me my most ardent prayer
I couldn't have hoped for anything more.
The sun spun golden glints in auburn hair
to crown an angel's face that I adore.

When we met, I knew we'd be together
my heart was racing and wouldn't slow...Read More

The wingman's sonnet
Can I tell you of this man's view,
His most blessed sight of you,
Enriched by a lively spring's hue,
A fresh love and each day anew,

Would you then not return his love,
When he sustains only with happy thought,
His mind so pulled, cornered...Read More

in memories a scintilla of faith
momentarily sustains surging tears
as the pulse of darkness awakens wraith
erasing the distance of lonely years
your voice befalls the silence my soul hears
in the absences death has bequeathed me,

Live Every Moment
As long as this life 
Sustains us
The sun rises 
And the sun sets,
Together, we'll live every moment.

That’s all folks!!
The ending of ignominious standard
Broken lyric limerick flace
Another wacky doodle face

Killing the bunny
Rattles funny in the brain
Clarity duplicity a sober reality
A part of us sustains the blast

Impervious repeating beating over
Just walk away like nothing happened
All admire the flat...Read More

Peevish spell maligned mental management
Mother Earth sustains a form regardless
“Mind over matter” they used to teach you
Control the “Religion of Climate” to bleach you

Trot a troll on mind control
Marionette children speak for demon masters
They just recite, “We told you so”

Ocean mind

Consider the mind like an ocean kind,
the depth and other side are invisible to the lights of mind.
The ocean creates, sustains and recycles,
accumulates and provides fresh water as natural miracles.
Thoughts are like this water, we need to survive,

The mirror of truth

To go in an instance
To a deep void
Even an empty unknown
Yet discern a certain knowing
Being in-sync with No-thing
And yet knowing a freshness
Crystal clear and light
Where creative inspiration
Sustains odd reason and logic
And discretely unwinds
