Only To Depart


I brushed aside
My faraway glimpses,
The many consequences
Of trifle revelries I wasted
Grasping the snippets of night time
And all  abandoned pining.
Bouquets of fondled whispers dangled
Among damp stems along Riviera beach,
Still molding flit kisses in balmy shades
That stretched on coasts of sudden farewells.

Writing Nuances


Above my head, a ray where I sit on a mossy ledge, stylus in my hand drips words like acid upon thin papyrus sheets-- of myths and cultures perishing, never to be repeated in splendour and tragedy-- their brilliance borne through swollen rivers' lore. A Brian Strand Contest NO 18 Oct 10, 2016

I Wish You Love





Waking to the heady wisps of a mildly settling dawn-break, I understand why we are connected trading our private reflections with ease in the name of deep affinity--after all these years, your confessions, milestones have become mine as well. And we both laugh at that fateful day, a serendipitous occurrence in the theater, your handkerchief slapping my face blown by an airwave-- Beneath the patter of falling rain, a coffee for two after-- surely the rest, a history of friendship as an omen of a union washes away all the loneliness of my nights. You, a chain binding me when strength loosens its grip, And I, your designated clown in the drama of your life's courtyard. I now take leave for a long voyage far, thousand miles from this city which knows us well, desperate somewhat to be estranged from you; but that precious gaze reassures me that everything is as it should be... the only thing you'll never know, my dear, is the hidden love I carry --since we met.

Reggae Me

Lively interludes of myself, this I ask of you-- synthesize the main pieces of my own music those beats of rhythm, the low and high notes that resound in my heart and hum the symphony of my spirit-- fly, my reggae tunes and primal melodies release the Marley tempo invite me once again and again to welcome the environ; to harvest life's juicy choral pulp!

To Summer



Passing the grains of rivers
mothered by the your sun,
tossed copper wind and shores rail
inch by inch--
meter by meter--
they drift along of a violet dayfall.
And glittering borealis slopes 
on emblazoned hem;
until land, sea, air and dazed fire,
wrap the colors of your grasses;
as a hundred villages await
the first notes
of  your  opening sonata;
a tingle from a raw desire
circling a bonfire of wildflowers,
in heat like a maiden, restless!

thickens into bursting gray---

winter's arrival

Liberte


When blind terror rages and burns
a city of love that now churns---
innocence, a prison.
The time will come as Fate returns,
justice for all seasons
O Liberte, newly risen.
