Secrets well hidden in the forest floor
Tamped way down deep in a garden snake’s tail
Beyond anything beauty had in store
Campfire fires brought on by dark ale

Guarded and protected by faerie’s strong
Secrets well hidden in the forest floor
Cool winds through the...Read More

My own nonsense word
Laughter with my muse
Delightedly figuring out meaning
Enthusiastic gang singing on American Idol

Created on site, here and now folks
Misunderstood emotions
Tamped down into a meditative dressing ritual
Deals with taking off clothes and sleeping in the buff

Invented cheerfully while we...Read More

Is That It
Translated by Przemyslaw Musialowski 2/24/2019

went around to the outskirts of the country
and it smells of babyhood
a reminiscence of poems
about the stream and with Konopnicka*
from the sad chamber

the lucky ones 
walk around in the glow of the spotlight
look - like wedding

Beautiful! Sparkly winter magic. Icy crystals smiled at us. A cheer went up.
Children who refused to wake up for school arrived on Deadman’s Hill by seven.  Happy laughter. Did you eat breakfast? Me neither.
We dragged our sleds up the...Read More

The Day the World Fell Apart
It was unseasonably
warm for Winter
sun shone bright
cool breeze blowing
but not even cold
and I was
just walking
along, not knowing
the world, as we knew it
was about to come apart
Then that piercing scream
ripped through my heart
heart pounding and
pumping, feet
pounding, running
suddenly cold all over
despite warm...Read More

This is a rubbish poem
This is a rubbish poem!
Since I was old enough to know better,
I was taught not to throw litter.
To scatter rubbish when out and about,
From our local bobby invited a clout.
Out back each house had a dust bin,
So called because all...Read More

They say that any dream is organised around a wish.
That a dream can often be the fulfilment of a wish.
Last night I dreamt.  I dreamt that we were gone.

years of painstaking escavation
that remains found tamped,
under a long...Read More

…the seeds of neo-Nazism are germinating  
Markus Nierth, former mayor of Tröglitz, Germany 2015

Ode to my pipe

Whomsoever doth smoke this pipe,
Should be prepared for an easier life,
For the stress and strain of the troubled soul
Are as but vapour in its bowl.

When filled to brim with fragrant stuff
Then tamped well down, and lighted up,
The...Read More

Traumatic experience
Here we hid when we heard
A knock strongly---a sudden clattered upon the ground
Everyone indoor shrieked, trembled

They separated males from females
Sans bother how small we were
They guided us to...Read More

final dismount, final ride
pasture waits for dappled roan
girth mark of the lonely byways
lather from the battles flown
dew eyed weary, spinal backed
stumble step'd and nostril blown...

Empty Playground
What later will be filled with squeals
And peals of childish laughter,
In desolation thus reveals
What comes before and after.

The vacant swings, with chains unclasped,
Hang waiting, so forlorn.
The silver slide, unoccupied,
Gleams dully in the morn.

The jungle gyms or monkey bars
Seem bare and...Read More

"To hold as 'twere, the mirror up to nature. "
William Shakespeare," Hamlet 1601."

Long ago another planted you,	
My cherished Ginkgo tree.
She tamped you in so carefully
And bequeathed you unto me.
Did she then live to see you grow
So stately and so tall?

How do we continue? 

When etched indelibly upon our being, 

are the scars  from love that has been abandoned. 

When the loss chafes the heart? 

With cold iron hands that leave us raw,

Time's Palmistry

Between your fingers slip the diamonds of each day;
Seconds, minutes, hours as well
Are strewn like cinders in the muddy mire away,
Tamped and trampled where they swiftly fell.

Inside your palm, faint diamond shapes remain—
Outlines, etched from clutching tight—
These lines remind you...Read More
