Premium Member Flavors Of Ecstatic Bliss
Sweet-n-sour pours
from heaven’s ethers;
the taste of crimson and
citrus metamorphoses
and a lemony-sugar
tipped with ginger
plays across the palate.

Mind to body and back again
neurons dance in 4/4 time
to the flow of colored
taste of lavender
and pink cinnamon-coated,
 rose hips;
yellow chamomile soft,
relaxing and savory.

Silhouettes, Clouds and Stars
echoes and silhouettes mingle in chime  
rebound reflecting ripples expounding
kaleidoscopic sketches that merge in mime 
with sharp room light bounding
reflections crash against pallid ash
streaming pictures focus as waves that splash

gray sound horizons in tornados swirl 
frequencies vibrate to sounds...Read More

 In an incandescent wood luminous poppies offer
guidance to travelers; tree limbs dance in 
syncopation to universal rhythms.
Fireflies shed their phosphorescence
among the flora.

I walk here in radiant beams of enlightenment.  
Gathering gemstones; dream time baubles
of esoterica for I am...Read More

And there was nothing to be done

Jingle-jangle bells
   Sing-song syncopation
Ambulances hurtle down streets

Eerie bells; haunting bells
   ghosts of round-ups, of Auschwitz 
of Buchenwald, and Bergen-Belsen
   sounds of death and doom

Shades drawn suddenly

Can't wait till the day we exchange I love you's

Dim lights ...

Rhythms pound
Cold Duplais Verte emulsifies in my square glass
Tongue tingling, I swallow it in sips
Woody, bitter licorice plucks my senses

The soft, dreamy warmth suffuses my blood, relaxing
And the flamingos start to dance
Up-and-down, sweeping and bouncing
Timed with colored lasers...Read More

We'll Definitely Be Back
with a twist of tangy lime
in starched cuffs and gleaming buttons
sparkle from the ivories
of a Baldwin baby grand
leaving the root notes
for the double bass to play

It's honey
in be-bop
pure rich amber honey
with a cinnamon stick
and a drop of syncopation
blending in soft...Read More

Tossing Hand Grenades and Bullets
Off and on they signaled, always in rapid fire
casting munitions across my window blind
A garish platoon of aggressors engaged in war
all tossing hand grenades at my haggard mind

Their bullets were blinking in Morse code
flashing in rhythm with droning dissonant jazz

All the Planets around Me
Tonight I can’t sleep
so I ponder the universe
and all the planets around me

swirling in syncopation
with me on one of them
unable to sleep

under the moon and the stars.
I do an address search for 
the First Church of the Big Bang.

Oh, the emptiness you leave behind -
Love is a noon-bright meadow stripped of its green,
Whose birds forget their songs: Or am I tone deaf now?
The melodies in Mahler Symphonies are monotone,
Only rhythm there suggests that Love is palpable,
A pulsing heart...Read More

Revolution, evolution,
Destitution, distribution,
Everything is seeking for attention
From the world at large;

Contribution to the human race,
Seeking some kind of place
To hide from the face staring at me
From the mirror in the restoration room;
Consideration, constipation,

Tear drops fall
between silent lines
carrying the tune
of this weeping melody
written on my heart’s

twisting treble clef sorrows

roaming ivory slivers bleeding 
out of tune syncopation
Unheard choruses
in three quarter sadness

This terror and threat to poetic clarity,
Becomes a pet rock for some poets.

Clarity unless poets put a mask on.

In what way shall I improvise myself?
Shall I memorize the first way I felt?
