New Poems

The mountains crumble under the mist
Loss with taloned finger tips hangs
from the creviced wrinkled faces of the lost
Mouths are bent
in unshown emotion
Loneliness stretches over each eye
holding tear at bay
all the words i never used
and those i never say
buried in the...Read More

Premium Member Autumn's Wild Rooster
Gloaming is wont to quell
the ginger smoke,
expunge the crimson flames
that surround the mill.
Lilac shadows encroach 
to cloak the hull's mossy patina.
Autumn's wild rooster,
struts its brash plumage
among fallen shingles and rotted planks
until a black hawk soars,
eclipsing feral zinnias' embers
just as calliope...Read More

Constanza - Inner Lost Child
We wander all, in feral dreams
of jagged thoughts and cryptic yearns;
a labyrinth of mirrored turns.

Along a ridge of moon stitched seams,
lie melancholic tapestries,  
unfolded in an abstract frieze. 

Subconscious angst weaves heart loomed themes
from pain sewn deep, through puerile...Read More

Frantically, I walk on a lane of  vile secrets,
past   glared dazes  from  hooded eyes
marking me as  obsession’s target where  a quest
to  nail me  taunts  my fear :  with endless
shrieks...Read More

Premium Member Pretty Lady
What would you do then pretty lady,
should my passion turn to love?
And when the eagle in my heart
becomes the gentle dove?

Do you cage the taloned beast
before it tears the flesh?
Or entwine the white dove
to sing within your breast?

Can you see...Read More

    I've taken long journeys in dark places
Where the Devil dare not tread
    I've shaken hands warmly
With the taloned hand of Death
     I've wisely weathered ticking Years
Placed before me by...Read More

Robin of the Hoodie

Alas, resides in Sherwood Forest,
one Robin of the Hoodie.  He’s lost
amid the greenery, weeping
as sunset nears for underneath
the Hood he hides his deep
and lonely fears.  The Hoodie
no protection here amid the
bug filled darkness, nor can
it...Read More

At the Wall

A Vietnam veteran and a mother 
Stand shoulder to shoulder 
Before it's patriotic domain,
Amazed at the hard stone's ability 
To accept the lost with such soft hands.
Their faces, caught in the black granite,
Merge into one.
With a secret map
Etched into the...Read More

O World! O Life! In cinematic flash
  from depth's darkest fathom to alpine drift -
in molten rain, in shaking mountain ash

Angels of Dragons
Angels Of Dragons

You heralded my wing-swept thunder
with garlands annointing the ground.
Sweet petals spiraling upwards
as I stood majestic, towering over
my protected children of Earth....
mankind, it was you.

You greeted me with song, dancing, 
feasting of meat I brought when
times were lean for...Read More

Self Reflection
My face is a canvas
on which ever busied time will paint for decades.

My lips are dried out magnets
of unseen power and attraction.

My ears are smithies
that poundr the sounds from the hammer to the anvil.

My hands are warm taloned machines
that alternately...Read More

 Prized Picture Framed
Rain gurgles through the air
It sounds like a classical raga.
Turmoil-tattered territory gets fainted
Blank pages don't get printed.
Half-nakeds embrace life nocturnal
Sinking teeth on thrown-out breads
Moonlit dinner under a canopy ethereal.
Incredible India beckons...

Grey Old Men Of The North
Grey clouds crept in like old men
White beards puffed and swollen
The wind at first came in whispers
Then cooled and fought like sisters
About the air all sharp and raw
Lashed the cheek with taloned claw
And along these tree lined halls
The clouds cough...Read More

Trying to Find Kroto
From Talkeetna by bush plane to a frozen bog 
under the white gaze of Denali.
“Snow’ll be too soft to land this afternoon,” 
our pilot says. “See you in the morning.”
He points to a wrinkle in the field of snow.
“Kroto Creek.”...Read More

Poetry Poem Poets for kristin reynolds and dion bess
Pain in the prophecy of wings through sultry sky
Orchestrating vision, love, destiny
Emancipating the tongue to tattle tales taloned with grief
Triumphing in truth to tumult another joy

Yearning to for a final...Read More

As Always
As the tides of rapture,
heavenly bliss,
the scars of yesteryear,
amidst... a gentle harbor,
this sorrowful treason.
A misery of new. . . 
tremulous fashion.

As the embers 
of Autumn, 
scarlet tumults, 
the essence of
divine season,
our virtuous faults.

Blazing lusts,
the calling of rememberance
for certain...
a champion partisan.
