We can’t go out so what to do?
How do we spend our time?
Imagination, racing thoughts
My brain on overtime.

There’s gardening, painting, DIY
Non urgent jobs to do,
They’re boring and predictable,
I need stimulus, tried and true.

That lazy dog could do a bit,
He snores...Read More

To Louisa:
Life showed us immense kindness when
One day, a princess was born into our home
Uniting estranged brothers,  nay, brethren
Into one hive, into one honeycomb
Solomon, Henry, Paul and Stephen
All brothers of yours
Armed themselves morning till evening
Brooms swathing at insects by the...Read More

Drinking morning dews from grass; sun looks healthy,
Housing red yellow rays, sky looks lovely and pretty.

Mountain stands strong wearing deep green garment,
Within white Kans grasses, river looks lovely at its best.

With blessing of winter; trees smile nice bowing its head,
Holding...Read More

Beautiful Tonight
Shadows are like,
A veil of calmness,
Swathing the mind,
A peaceful aura,
The knots untwined.

Palpable darkness,
Stroking the skin,
Almost too passionately,
We’re akin.

Flows the tender breeze,
Ushering the spirit,
Drifting it away,
The heart is then,
Free of any fray.

Sweet air gushes in, 
So the aroma of night bloom,
Pure...Read More

The Full Moon
A full moon 
Swathing white light
The illuminating ethereal fire
Rests upon and rest beneath
Amidst a midnight forest
Where silence calms the restless trees
The unearthly glow has a story to tell
For those whose manifestation is brought in question
Accept the light that is a...Read More

Beneath Death's Dark Veil
Wednesday, October 31, 2012

A careless Swathing of Death's face- pale
Burn the images and erase the memories
Bury the lies beneath Death's dark veil

Dig deep- finding secrets beneath the remains
Salty tears pierce the bloodless veins
Hiding the lies beneath Death's dark veil

Burn the...Read More

 Large red harvest moon
hangs over the prairie fields
swathing in neat orderly rows
reflect from the moon's bright glow
dust hangs heavily in the air
as harvest season has begun
deer gather for a bountiful yield
while moose call into the night
with the howling coyote...Read More

Chestnut Blight
As each fatigued day culls my nature
Mine mind does Judas thee
And tinker pon the waves of hope
Muted Banshee

My blighted roots once writhed hitherto
Severed from earths comely breast
Mother natures contempt of me
Fair mumsy, she knows best

I adorn no vibrant leaves
Laird, wooden...Read More

A Sleeping Silhouette
Earliest of the morning light
peers its silly little smiles
Peeking through shades and sills

Swathing ambience surrounds
Sketching out a silhouette
Sleeping contours satin covered still

Gentle touches, my fingertips paint as brushes
Traces, the wildflower’s presence
Lying silent among the daffodils

Fine captured lines of radiance
Savor the...Read More

Dream of Creation
She was asleep
but her gaze dragged above, 
and a shadow was drawn with them

she let him make night

swathing her in darkness
planting nebula in sockets,
he watched galaxies grow 
as a yawning black hole 
revealed destiny

he made moons of breasts
the big bang...Read More

Ashes Might Go Down Easier
Once in a while -in a moment 

of immense sulfurous clarity, when 

every grace I locked in my dilated pupils

begins to form lesions, yellow-running

tears through the deepest, lusty scarlet –

black and white would be a relief.

My mind billows like sheets,

silken,...Read More

Blue sky turning cobalt
Black cloak in the wind
A skeletal shape
Looking for the innocents sins

Ravens above
In frantic flight
Their master they chase
Decrepit delight

Scythe in swipe
Cutting and swathing
All before him
Bloodied craving

The sands of time
Around his waist
In timely pursuit
His deathly taste

Don't fear the Reaper

Common Thread....
Fabric of the universe,
has weaved all within it's nature
upon looms from spindles,spinning wheels
beginning with a single thread........

Connecting all in purposeful suit
appropriate uniformity
serving one,to serve the all
the whole now luminosity.....

Somehow...the thread becometh loosen
and pulled unraveling many,
like spinning tops in chaotic spin

Broken Tongues and Laryngitis
Shouldering songs from the birth to the rhyme
of emotion, spring silver and burgundy 'spires
Slipping your words in a tragedy roll
tumbling and tumbling sweet in my mouth
Parching the lips from the birth to the hip
of elation, crooned gypsy and marble desire
