Alas I write these words to thee
My lost and lonely soul
Dried tears for days I cried
It’s you whom makes me whole

Ink on paper cuts like glass
Cold hands quiver on skin
How I miss summers’ of past
Swooning under moonlit rays

Meritaten and Meketaten
Did one miss the sea after all?
Now that you were all flesh and bone
-- finely woven from the Sun --
Swooning westward each day

Did silky onions gleam in moonlight at Amarna?
Did Maat pierce your rib cage with each sunrise?
Did a Libyan...Read More

Premium Member Where Bumbles Bounce
Flitting and buzzing in a 
playful, poetic dance
a whirr of delicate wings 
crescendos and decrescendos
among a colorful carpet of
sumptuous, silky petals. 

Daring drones speed dizzily about
barely resting, constantly competing 
in a crazy chase for their sticky prize. 
Swooning with drunken...Read More

God In All Things
God In All Things 

repeat the refrain,
not having you in my arms was driving me insane...
delicate debris;
God in all things,
start spreading the disease
fragrance of the knee
justification by faith...

belly of the beast that makes you go far

it started
as a pic

we ate
sunshine
and absorbed
more then enough

food to fill four
swooning
couples
well

at least
for me being
the swooner and
she playing the part

of the swoony who
in an act of anger
makes a scene
and leaves

leaving me
to make the toast

BLESS THE HEART OF SPRINGTIME 

Pert buds of Springtime,
Sunshine bows to thee —
   Forsythia gold,
Willow’s spray in pink
   And snow-white Bradfords.

Scampering, like
   Squirrels and bunnies,
*Croplet of kids
   Stir the playground.

Escaped! furtive glances
   Manifest of enchanted trances
Arrested by crimson faces averted
   Too soon, too soon, they'd flirted

The air yearned with sensation
    Surreptitious, delicious anticipation
Peering deeply into each other's eyes
   Too soon,...Read More

Roping stars of wide open country

Man does everything with a flair

Always charming so debonair
