you’re not my judge, nor my jury;
And I don’t have to worry;
I’ve been unforgiven-BY YOU…
And yet I’ve already paid my dues;

I am

Just a sinner, saved by grace;
Not of this world;

hearts fire up
from within the womb

of a flame
the flicker of hope
for those wonderfully made
in the image of God

The Parable and the Penguin

All the world a stage
Our love not left on a shelf
Waters edge, in spades

Written in stone, ring
Waddle waddle kind of swing
Will you marry me

As we take the plunge
Into the depths out of blue
Our ceremony

Is a slow walk, true
Is a path...Read More

Yet is true really real?

with memories of
Grandma’s beauty shop
and dusty with
piles of books.

to ward off
my merry-go-round spree
of her chair,
she sends me downstairs
to choose
whatever books that i want.

i was drawn to
Daphne Du Marier’s

Bygone Days

with lilac trees and sagebrush brooms
and e'er the sweet honeysuckle blooms

The Storm of Ages

I was given a taste of something... sweet. 
Innocence reborn a new, 
I... am... born... again. 

While some celebrate, 
others cringe and cry.
They try to mock and separate, 
what is truth and real?

i dont like it here

from a desolated house 
where plates and pillows whisper dirty words
where mirrors dont hold reflections

Pagan Creator
Pages of white lust
are recalling Summer moons
tugging a retreating 

roar. God of Insanity:
objects personified shaped
to impact reason 

in his senseless world.
Hands reach within closed eyelids-
chis luring the heart.

Cancerous pain seeps,
then tunnels. A maroon creek
rushing through sand-colored

walls of leek-like tissue.

A Wondrous Place

Without a single care in the world
Went from one place to another
And my sight of the world swirled
‘Til no more, I could could only see stars
That twinkled and shined wondrously

The Kiss
It has been with me my whole long life,
Wafted on the gentle breezes of the wind,
It's followed me 
Down the ragged pathways of my mind.

It was in the rain that washed the parched places in my heart,
And I found it...Read More

an arrogant youth, endowed with beauty.
born of leisure, with no sense of duty.

In youth, I walked the world so bold.
never worried a bit, while growing old.
never noticed my life, wasting away.
