Travel Symphony

Flutes, ahead laying the routes Oboes they off to Villalobos Harps, dusting off vessel tarps Violin silenced by engine din Cello, matching the revving bellow Piano sad in the canoe Clarinets are taking private jets Horns, fasten seatbelts the Captain warns Cymbal off checking the gimbal Saxophone, sorry plane now flown Bassoon missed flight in June Trumpets in London loving crumpets Timpanis tanning in Florida Keys Tambourine, ouch you forgot sunscreen Drum in Jamaica sipping on rum Trombones still crossing time zones Tuba, where else but Cuba!!

Rainbow Something II


melting, Red, hot in passion imagine some try to ration teasing, Orange, stimulating in pleasure really do try and measure laughing, Yellow, funny in humor sadness here is a rumor growing, Green, reflecting in nature you the ever unique creature soothing, Blue, calming in peace come share a little piece thinking, Indigo, evolving in wisdom using mind to expand kingdom tickling, Violet, rendering in imagination such minds have no station

Society

Society

an illusion, the shimmering mirage in a blistering desert of homogeny with silicon grains seen only as dunes mass minded sheep willfully penned in suspiciously safe paddocks fearful of everything and nothing tumultuous ocean with waves of conformism and exclusion where rivers of contrast flow diluted to extinction one and few dreaming in clouds and walking on air tethered to a wonderfully disparate and inclusive reality

Long dreams Alternate seems Short happiness Emerges snappiness Sweetly savory Faith bravery Glossily scuffed Hardly chuffed Heat cracked Odds stacked Ignitable flame Hope's aim Pair required Thoughts rewired Both rediscovered Love recovered

A Publishing Date

Let me drape upon you a written robe, 
beautifully indexed on your tablet. 
My! you look divine, 
off we go to dine on literary flavours and liquid verse. 

A five chapter meal we just published. 
This evening with you was a stunning essay read like a swift summary. 

Narrating your life’s novel, 
I record and archive, 
citing the volume of your smile, 
punctuating the exclamation of your eyes. 

May I undress you with my pen, 
printing kisses on your pamphlet lips. 
Nonfiction foreplay is the order of the day 
with teasing stanzas and touching tomes. 

Your skin the clear scroll, 
we edit with rhetoric as I explore the fiction of your passage. 
The lexicon of your moans, would a fine manuscript make. 
This plot you will review then quote.

You descend from that last paragraph, 
this memory shelved high in your canon. 
My pen has woven for you a silk word blanket; 
as you lay on my journal pillow;
wrapping you in the epigraph of my affection.

Societal Tendencies

Word paint this uncanny illusion, fluid in state of mass confusion Product line of numb minded sheep, in fear of difference, holding doubt in reverence. Minds and feet now anchored deep, having slid the slippery slope steep unto worn road of indifference. Like sweeping sand with silicon grains seen as dunes in desolation deserts one and few dare dream molding disparate unique specks in wondrous betterment

Night Bloom

night desert streets bloom now watered by dawn's dew tears before dust gathers
