"The Faces of Man"

The faces of Man
held in the hand 
of Mephistopheles 

blood sells white and red
pontificating with two fingers

consuming greed for 
want of everything
they meld into the
curves of their crooked bends

he’s come to collect 
the minds of men

Don’t go telling me about your woes without a single clue
Tell me your precious vitality’s optimistic joy once more
Sell me your vivacious, perfect ability to soar that I adore

Letters to USA
To you this Poet writes away,
To caution ‘My People’ of today,
That what is wrong is never out’s,
But lies within the hearts of doubts,

Where O’ Where these thoughts be born?
In the darkness ore’ the dawn,
Of minds that knelt in disciple,

Everything has a soul
Maybe the wind blows to search for lost clouds
Maybe the stars shine to hunt for the sun
Maybe we laugh to gasp in some air
To let our soul dance blissful and bare

Maybe the waves come looking for lost fish
Maybe smoke rises...Read More

Dancing Girl
There is an ocean that dances next to me
She cradles time and sees every inch of my body

Moving through the tide
Pulled inwards that surrounds
She is a dancing beauty
Silent as a sound

She sways in the light
She moves through my mind
Hips follow...Read More

Premium Member Nature Knows Best
A flower shoots up through the gravel in the back yard

Enthused by persuasion of spreading seeds for dear life

Red petals applaud a scented splash of dissident colour

Among yellow clover converging in strides of plentitude

	The poppy marches on nevertheless

Dance of the Windchimes
A unique and unrehearsed lullaby 
That wind and storms amplify 
A confined and precise ballet
That illuminate in shadow-play
A sun-kissed and bright sail
That awaits a melodic gale 
A mesmerizing and relaxing thought 
That sways above a flowerpot 
A provoking and recalled...Read More

I want to ride a zebra

and race the rays of radiance
through heat-waves sailing gradients -

a folly wild - a mood untamed
elated hands in bristled mane
unbridled veins uncorked champagne...

yes! elevate sedate heart rate
I WANT to ride a zebra

I pull you in close to me,
the curve of your body,
rests on my knee,

Your long slender limb,
so beautiful,
adorned in jewelry,

I run my fingers, 
along your curves,
the moment it besieges me,

The golden brown colors,
that adorn your fretboard,
takes me to the right...Read More

Angelus Silesius the mystical Angel
Angelus Silesius Translations

The rose merely blossoms
and never asks why:
heedless of her beauty,
careless of every eye.
?Angelus Silesius, loose translation by Michael R. Burch

The rose lack reasons
and merely sways with the seasons;
she has no ego
but whoever put on such a show?

Malignant dreams tapestry displays;
Distance calls yet rhapsody preys;

Listen as the screams of humanity;
Malignant spirit hovering sways my chances;

Consistent, forbidding, indifferent pageantry;
Vision dripping of my enigma dances;

Thinking of visions  figmented imagination;
Indignant  humans and demonic nonmalignant;

Existence, forbidding, 
Sufficient, trans shipment's;

And her story of heartbreak shaping her voice

Midnight’s blue dress -
modem of her physique,
molded immodestly,
married to monumental
destiny of desires,
elongated as if clinging
to an Amazon warrior.

Blue dress props up
her spectacular breasts,
high and mighty, tinged
with reckless success.
Mortification of the madonna.

Fabrication fraught
with embellishments,
bells and whistles of gold
stitched like...Read More
