Premium Member TABULA RASA

No, my child,

our soul is not a " tabula rasa" as some men of

learning want to make us believe


our Lord  has

written on her volumes of His wisdom, that life's

experience, helps us to retrieve!

Aphrodite's seven veils over the morning ocean mist
Seven aquamarine stones, all gifts from the dream lords
Seven victorious dolphins have bargained with the Fates

A white rose blooming out of the...Read More

To My Love Part 5 TBC
As the odyssey in the skiff continued a more sentient being begun to appear,
At times feeling as a eunuch who was unable to change anything,
In zenith of toxicity as miasma on a cold misty morning.

Fico com saudade de casa 
só de te ver.
O vazio da tábula rasa
pra aprender
e sair sem saber porque saio,
mas pode ser
já tá hora final do ensaio,
assim dizer,
o esboço, a preparação
para morrer
ou apenas a separação
com a mulher.

forgetting how
to do this
i wake everyday
with a tabula rasa
an amnesia of how
to kiss

my lips since
have dried
and cracked
but dreams 
are truer than 
life's fiction

no need 
for lipstick
and you can
curl your tongue
don't wake me just
remind me what to do...Read More

Quasi Mote - Oh Ephemeral Transit Across Proto Zones!

Strictly speculation from this mind,
who contemplates stripped down version

pinwheeled thru spatial void

Of being loved
Somehow the aching work to enthuse, to impress, to win over
Ends in a showboating mess of half acquainted neighbors

Premium Member Cry of the Newborn
A newborn is lovingly pulled out
Of the womb, taking air 
Into her lungs for the very first time
Infinitesimally silent, then comes
Her first cry. A mellifluous sound
She announces wordlessly..."I'm alive!"
A miraculous world debut
She's crying as she's placed into
Her mother's waiting arms

I want to revert back to sweeter times, 
When laughter and carelessness were in style,
And everything was a new discovery 
Those memories, however vivid are distant 

They seem like nothing more lately,

Tabula Rasa
This house is empty
without you
though you've never been
here to fill it.
I thought it would help
to find a place
you have never touched. 
But all I am has 
been touched 
by you and there is
nowhere to go. 
How can laughter echo

Burn The Soul
When you burn books
Fahrenheit 451
You burn the soul of nations
When you censor them
The mind is lobotomized
Blocked truth, all butterflies die
Never see the light of day

Turn us all robotic numb
Pounding one note on a drum
I've got your number

A bug trapped in amber. 
Fossil flowers in a stone.

Snow  - my dream  miracle,
