The divine tune

Oh! you liked the tune, it's from Bamboo flute,
an instrument emits sound, descends to
soul through ears; tune is played at dusk imbue
a feeling of pure bliss, it's absolute.

Just imagine the Sun is about to
set, you're sitting on the hill resort...Read More

This thirsty ground with a barren view, 
Once cooked to a blistering dance,
It baptized all the life with heat, 
Cooking the grass, shrubs and plants,

Until the farmer, in his old leather boots, 
Walked, throughout spring, to the fight,
Armed with nothing...Read More

the edge of town arrives quickly.
You hang an inscrutable left
only to discover
one beat-up clapperboard hulk
hanging over tall corn
as if land-wrecked.
you drive to the end of
a suburban tract
and while waiting for the lights
a blue wash of sky
paints out
the last inflatable swimming...Read More

I have noticed
all my daily educational journeys
begin with,
Where do I come from?
And how do I feel today
about my journey so far from yesterday?
Our journey so far,
and yet not far enough?

I come from living waters
as profoundly liberating as the air

When I return to Adelaide on Thursday
To watch Australia's cricketers display
The batting skills with which they now believe
May soon another Ashes win achieve,

I hope the captaincy of Mister Paine
Will not be proven immature again.
I do not think him suited to...Read More

Bear Creek Valley
The pin oak leaves from dormant trees, 
fall on this crisp autumn morn,
as I paint the scene of an artist’s dream;
in my mind this landscapes born.
The patch work green is this valleys scene,
with broken squares of chocolate earth,
where I look...Read More

Premium Member Violated by My Own Imagination
Creepy crawling slimy wiggly thing
Feels eerily strange against my pajama leg
I wake up suddenly
Thinking cobra
or sleazy wet rat
violated by my own imagination
Snatching my explorer hat
out of the clutches of the crocodile
in the swampy forest floor

The Nightmare King 
Mighty autumn ruler
All powerful deity,
Travels on the wings of crows
Brings spooks and goblins out of hidey holes
Pulls basilisk out of swampy ponds
Gnashing his terrible teeth
Throwing knives in fearsome ways
Terrifying pumpkin fields
Dancing his Lewd and Eager dance
Lavishly spitting...Read More

If the Gods Love Us
Pray, if the Gods love us all so much
Why is it that they never do open the skies up
And save us?

Why is it that they remain silent
Letting our hearts bleed
Letting our tears pour
Letting our delusions get even more 

Do they...Read More

Brouhaha Over Confederate Statues
Ambiguity within mine
doodling Yankee mind that

hoopla harrumphing

particularly regarding southern generals

call to arms whereat,

treasonous tit for tat

Rice paddy wakes up ready to be planted.

The Ventriloquist Voice
Thousand thoughts rummage the grey fluff.
Gloomy, godawful voices thump in self-talk
"I'm an idiot, a loser,...... it's all my fault".
Autopsies of the past, tear my flesh,
Regrets of a decade, devour my heart.
Rant of betrayals suffocate my breath.
Capricious sentiments egg me to...Read More

The voice of our homeland Ghana bitterly expresses her feelings over failing governments.

Kitchen counters alive; the vivid colors of red, green, purple and yellow glass jars. Your garden flourished.
Pickled beets mingle boiled eggs; a pretty periwinkle purple.
Yellow and purple tinted fingers; dandelions and elderberries distilling; musty aroma permeated by sweet wine. A...Read More
