New Poems

If there was no poetry
if a tree falls and there is no one to hear it
not even the merest susurrus
for a poet to capture the moment
the spell of redamancy would be broken
the world, as we know it, would not exist

Heart yearns for a remedy to help it unwind,
as thoughts drift to forgotten forests of the mind.
Distant visions with hues of a sepia tone,
soul senses tranquil nourishment of being home.

Sweet serene scents feel like a delicate dream,
as light cascades through...Read More

Susurrus songs of delightful dragonflies with flash dances
Through flowering fields with passionate prances
Glowing with sanguine opulence, we glimpse gallant glances
We capture them in conversation in composing literary lace lances 
Mother nature bestows to them picturesque chalices overflowing with cornucopia...Read More

The Sound of Autumn
The youth get old quickly while learning goes slowly,
Of even a single minute or second we can’t make light.
When in dreamlike spring we still indulge contentedly,
Susurrus leaves of phoenix trees touch the steps in sight.

Autumn Afterglow

Red

from afar, leaves like uncounted catatonic fires  
huddled close
pinned to the chill air

a pointillist’s love affair with a hundred shades of red

the ground is a fresh wound, edgeless 

a breeze worries the boughs 
stokes the hanging flames into quivering...Read More

It rains torrentially
after long drought and disorder;
it rains drenching the empathetic 
scraggy soil of the heart
it rains moistening the rocks of anger
crags of revenge and cracks of depravity
it rains covering the jealous holes with purity
healing the undesirable crevices of...Read More

Morning Mind Matter
It’s half past four in the morning.
Thoughts swirl in my head,
Not one a epiphany.
I can’t help but to wish every day
Radiated the petrichor
That smells like home and happiness.
The susurrus of night swirls in my ears,
So painfully present
I cannot seem to...Read More

All Alone
All alone, in the surreal, rayless eventide, gnarly, disheveled hands gouging from the rooted Earth, tongue forever tied. Melancholia echoing through Gods breath, despondency wrenching your azure-splashed jeans, the susurrus of the Devil's proclamation chirping out sadistic demeans.
All alone, breathlessly...Read More

THE LOST PRINCESS
The Lost Princess

I felt his susurrus
Under my feet
The world as I had known it before
Is nullified
Stranger still is 
This feeling of not being quite mortified
Mortem does mean death in my language
Yet the poisonous river
Is the death personified
I am the lost...Read More

Premium Member Pickled Raspberry Musings
Caged magnetic daydreams of lucid migration;

I’ve been there before.  It’s forbidden:

Orchard carved calligraphy crisply cut -
Spiraled surface-scratched immortality 
Dimly azure, aglow on videotape,
Red, blue, green.  Nature’s baby grand.
An organic player-piano ceaseless 
In mellow tone, perched potpourri hillside,
Plucking raspberry...Read More

I dream of a place where dancers embrace,
Waltzing together incipient lights,
Music transposed echoed heavenly grace,
Accompanies first harmonious nights;

I dream of lilacs and lavender mist,
Adrift susurrus shoreline’s infinite breeze,
Flowing compassion through time reminisced,
That journeys taken be traveled with ease:

Dawning
in the dawning of the sun
the stars within me rise
light hues of reds and blues
as sail with blurring stars,
susurrus of silky movements  
awakens me to her morning song
our kisses rising with our hearts
and through our love into the silence

On a Crisp Autumn Evening
The susurrus breeze 
of spring’s ingénue trees 
now rasps and wheezes,
rustling sparse leaves as
the trees, now crones,
rest brittle bones,
primed for winter’s coming.

Sensing the Divine
Is the universe
God’s dream,
or is this a being
whose sole
imperative is
to comprehend itself—
susurrus reverberating
through spacetime’s
faint and gossamer web—
arrayed for us
as law and truth?
Will I ever know?
Will I understand,
if I do?

The Man Who Spoke in Whispers
(for Jim Ducker)


The growth plundered your voice,
robbing it of tone; you spoke
in well-articulated whispers, inhaling
through that tube thing in your throat.

You shone, in spite of it all.
No self-pity, even near the end,
after years of speaking to us
in breaths the way...Read More

Susurrus
Scene One:

Fingertip touches
under salt sun,
a volunteer hostage,
wrapped in white.
She leans in,
whispers,
“Stay as long as you like,
dead on this wet cedar slab,
feet toward Japan.”

Scene Two:

Writing in shadow,
deep pain alive,
heart on the killing floor,
still beating.
She closes me tight
in her white apron,
leans down,
whispers,
“Stay...Read More

It Isn't Arcadia but It's Darker Than Hell
This is where death is the child and I it's Laborious hand holder

Crooked grins and demon walkers make the evil hallow
and the meek surrender

Resurrections  2

Timeless beyond light brought awareness
Breathing by life blood
Destinies womb where souls settle
Diamond snowflakes from above

Shifting susurrus of whispered tryst
The sanctuary of love
Configured identities in Dervish dances
On Astral quivers Plato arrows of heavenly vistas

When light bequeathed the resurrections echoes
