The poem(s) are below...



the exile
 far from the homegrown 
 this mud pile
 hidden by the hedgerow
 of old time

out West where the sun 
 sets its sore raw burnt wound
 into the ocean
 of my blues, night soothes
 in moonstruck currents

warm water of the deep
 like a baby in its mother's womb
 resurfacing in dawn's blushed seize
 on my lips a tune
 the soul salt salved

and onto the land
 where the ocean sets its dying waves
 pass the golden sands
 the fragrance in the hills and dales
 my will to plant

and tonight 
 I look to the East
 long to tie
 with the roots that did feed me
 my eyes on the moonlight

guiding my steps
 my dream in the new Spring, revived
 the circle to set
 where the sun rises
 into eternal rest
