The red sun
Rests deep on the lake

Dark Forrest trees
Guard like Thor
As night falls

Frog

The wind of Thor
Drives monsoon rain
To frogs delight.

Small Potatoes

Metaphorically they are
As rust to iron
In the fields of
The hunger demon
Ravaging timelessly
Small potatoes
Are like
The Grace of God.

The Sign - It must be

Walking down a mountain trail

barely there and ever fading

absorbing nature's beauty

far ahead I see a sign

"Oh good"' I think

"It'll tell me where I'm going,

and how far to the next lookout

or waterfall."

When I get there

I see no sign

but I wonder,

Was that a sign?

Then a bird begins to sing

like I've never heard before.

Pavlovian deception

Just when you thought
You had your freedom
You respond to
The sound of the bell
Any bell.

Ice Meth

ironically the fad
will kill
what you long for

I saw the bullet

In my spotting scope
I saw a flash
All went black.

White Rose Sophie Scholl

It haunts me to think

that you would die for your ideals

at such a tender age

thinking you are

intellectually superior

and in many ways you were,

but Sophie,

it is such a waste to die so young

for what?


Your offspring could have

carried the flame

continued 'the white rose'

in all its purity and

ideological splendor

but you are right, off course,

even in death and thereafter

Mitt Gott kannst Du alles.

Dragonfly

The dragonfly hovers 
motionless in the purple
band of the rainbow.
