Hidden Paradise
(Dedicated to Toni Marie Labadie.)

A little Tahiti
in our hearts abides
where you and I
love through the tides

Wherever we go
it's always there
under weeping willow
above solar flare

Yes, life is simpler
when I keep this in view:
My troubles aren't insular
My peace is from you...Read More

Barefoot Buccaneer
Bronwyn the Barbaric was a buxom lass
the envy of all her peers
She spoke with unrivaled swashbuckling sass
her pirate-ess fashion was fierce

She could charm off the arms of the most hardened men
how they'd swoon at the sight of her swagger
She ruled...Read More

Premium Member Tahiti Defined By Tahiti
The plague knew my infinite hulk 
in 1769, crept through the Polynesian crystal
onto my outstretched archipelago
black sands and white sands and volcanoes
speaking the purple language,
the queen’s English to the farmer’s French,
and drank from the palm tree 
to drain the lagoon...Read More

Cold in the Tropic

When the bronze-skinned, 
silver tongue surfer
came smoothly yacht cruising
at year’s end
All the island ladies,
at the cabana house welcoming party,
mosh pit fell in ... 
Fell in love 
with the cosmopolitan thought
of permanently leaving
Loose their dinghy life from the slow-pace wharf,
and deep...Read More

The King's Wife - Te Arri Vahine
The King's Wife - Te Arri Vahine

Gauguin’s painting of “The King’s Wife,”
immortalized a goddess of Tahiti, Pacific paradise.
Mesmerizing mahogany muse memorializing his canvas,
she’s a tropical Venus on a bed of forest green grass.
Nature’s umbrella, a thick canopy of mango trees,

Figuratively free flying 
Wings in the air.

Ten to ten in twenty two hours

Touching the tentative torch.

I was so looking forward to my trip to Tahiti
this was to be my panacea, a sure cure for all my ails.

If you leave, the island
Rests a sad face on its paws
And longs for your return,
Harkening for the oar-splash
Of your approaching boat.

If you never return,
It remembers your face
All  life  long.

    In a small cabin amidships:
 Stole away in an unknown quest,
 Salty ocean brine wet on his lips

 In the concealment of dim twilight

A Mutiny on the Bounty

Ambushed by my own men at morning hour
Hands tight with cord and naked from the waist

It was the troubled wind of mutiny

The Mutiny

Captain Bligh was his name,
he ruled his ship with an iron cane.
The Bounty was the ship,
sailing to Tahiti, via Cape Horn was the trip.
At Cape Horn, after tacking back and forth,
eastward, was set the course.
It was the long way round,
but...Read More
