Alchemy
Gleaming wager’s chart spells filmy odds
And tip triers to toss wee mites for more;
To forfeit modicums of ground for vaster 
Acres wider than the fabled Midas shore.

No curse greater than lost chances fair
Baked and gilded to enchant and deke, 
Verily...Read More

Doorways        never closed        never open 
Chambers too high 
Bridges going nowhere 
Tempting tunnels 
Gaps in the cracks 
Stories from long ago

Witch Hunt
There was an old lady, a frumpy old bag
who people called horrid, a witch and a hag
And 'though she was ugly and danced 'mid moonbeams
all was not quite as it might've then seemed

Old-fashioned black clothing made her look quite strange

Premium Member Land of Lights
A sweep of milky waves flood onyx sands
converging under endless summer skies
of northern lights in iridescent bands
Icelandic talismans of tales sublime.

A glassy sea of crystalline degrees
sustain a mass of icebergs in its pews
that lift their icy eyes in melting pleas

Acts of contrition, on knees if I recount
Beatitudes, eight, sermon on the mount
Charity given, is blessings received
Dalai Lama, a Buddhist deity
Ecumenism, it understands and unites
Fascism erodes individual rights
Gaia, Greek goddess of our mother earth
Heresy, one's belief, another's mirth
Idolatry, the worship...Read More

After This
1/19/16

That is it
After this
No matter if
The road ahead is hazardous
Beside many establishments
Waters with or without halibuts
And areas where the ground and air has traces of contaminants

Bought her a lot of amethyst
And garnets that were called mandarins
So that whenever she wanted...Read More

Imbolc's Light
Imbolc's Light that shines so bright.
Bring prosperity into our sight.
Laughter, good health and creativity too.
All this we humbly ask of you.

Keep us mindful our path not to stray.
As we continue walking the Wiccan Way.
Relieve us from anger and weariness of...Read More

Moon Frogs
Amphibian antiquities from the age of normalcy 
Pathologically festive creatures of the night
Verdant phosphor moon frogs bark their insistent mating call
Adorned with talismans, chanting mantras of maroon heroism 
Conflagration of croaking becomes ritualized war of tongues
Imaginary walls dissolve in a...Read More

Ode to a Weary Wolf
Humanity is transient and fleeting -- save
For what memories and dreams may linger....

Too much violence, again.
How flawless a wolf does feign.
Down in the humming cellar,
The guise of a gentle fella.

You have made the beast laugh,
Always expecting a puppy half,
Through centuries...Read More

THE WAR ZONE OF MY LIFE
   for Aidan in row 5

At the edge of the sky, there is a crimson slash 
seen through the leafy scrolling of trees that soldier 
the perimeter of the lake. Overhead there is only 
gray, as in the...Read More

There was a time when feathers found me like talismans, they came.
Without their down, I was grounded, the sparrow thought to lend me flight.   
Now, neither up, nor down do my eyes go, for the third eye is...Read More

The Scroll of Sorceress
The Scroll of Sorceress:
I do dark arts,
I do allure men to beat drums,
I cast spell through evil eye beads,
My dirty tricks no one reads,
I am someone who never cheats.
I am dark art goddess,
I am wise sorceress!!
I am black magic woman,

STATECRAFT
Delta. I was the fourth child.
The delta connection of a
triangular love. No blues.
Only cottony belly.

My copper coins. I want to save
them for making talismans.
My arms are entwined like
a python around the neck of a medusa.

That hairy push of a trident.

Vacuum
Callously discarding,

talismans of heart and soul,

hastily scorching all bridges,

in a supernova burying me whole,

retreating into emptiness,

no salvation to be found,

sins too many to absolve,

drowning, in a freshly
dug hole in the cold ground.

Hollow, empty, barren desolation closes in,

asphyxiating me,

within the walls...Read More

Red Plums Wild
To preserve this day, I pick red plums wild
Within my soul, I dream a while
A vision ancient, to me smiles
Of plums growing wild in thickets dark
There for taking by man or lark
Beside running waters where beaver barks
I hear the drum...Read More

With a grave heart I write
With a frail heart I forgive

gregarious garments
uniting farcical flocks all over the world,
gregarious garments, talismans & 
little good luck charms required by religions
to ward off “evil spirits,” to separate man
from “god,” or to just protect the fuzzy sheep
from the rest of us heathens,
are donned by believers...Read More

I thought I could find solace in the unfamiliar contours of skylines that never burned out, that 
I could disappear into a cityscape, an empty moon betrayed by the sun.

But night still blooms around cities, pressing patient palms against filmy...Read More

Dark Blight of Halloween Night
There was a dense fog upon the land
not a fit night for animal nor man...
the moon did change its silvery view 
replacing it now was a blood red hue....

There just beyond thicket of the marsh road
lies the endless tar pits...Read More

Call to Arms
Earth left shattered, broken ground
Call of duty raised the dead
Screams are felt, no need for sound
Blazing orange spotted red
Douse the fires with blood shed
Pillaged homes and raided farms
Burning bush may well have said
All men rise when called to arms

Self appointed...Read More

The Barghest's Monody
Therewithal, profluent life ettles it's while.
Thitherward, from Death's bleak campanile
Grim antiphonals serenade.

A capriccio, the slashing swipe of the reaper's scythe
 will serenade.
Stringent Death forthwith anoints the mithridate to
Life's cantankerous and rankling ado

Hither now come, anon recondite Azrael, neither protend
 nor...Read More
