I did love him
My last whim falls
A grim false hope
The tight rope strung
Down slope it comes
Bitter crumbs thrown
Heart strums blank notes
Fate, she gloats now
Pain dotes on us
No less fuss made
Ferrous hearts mend

woozle's rhetoric
spills a cheap slight trick;

mythical muffin
circles the entrails,

Leaves behind crumb tales.

Pontifs lash out in
Loud arrogant gall;
Rarely on the ball,
Busy beeing small.

Start There-
Lost in white walls:
I cavort in my recess,
Of winding grey walls.
Noise of keys, jangle
Every reverie.
Somedays seem
Sooner forgotten;
Like yesterday, when
Escape was tommorrow's
Absent blind date,
Discovered in today's lap- an
Unused napkin, pristine and fresh
soiled only with a quick kiss.....

Don't you know everbody is a winner
We'll have steak for dinner.
Be sure to cut the fat and
share the books.

Flash your food stamp necklaces.
Dance with holes in your Soles;
After all Nobody cares
What you wear.
You'll find a way,
To raise to the top,
You're the Cream of the crop,
Our Future
Don't Forget
Your Burden...

The fog comes
on little cat feet.
It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

Thanks...Love Sandburg


Glassine lake reflects
Loons call, a lone goose takes flight
Steam wafts into dawn

Scotch Pine

Heavy with snow
the branches hang low;
Gently slopping,
curving inward,
yet outward
again, portraying
a stooped siloheuette,
their swollen winter weight
belie the Graceful summer Sway.
Moist April flakes
stunt spring germination
Surprise frosts stave
Early conifer bud,
On the remnants
of Christmas past...

a slopping pine
is way different than
a sloping pine bough
and indicates
sloppy spelling
as well as a slipshod edit...

I want to thank you,
Other poems are due
and nicely add flavor.
Rare is the word
That people share,
as prized as a bluebird.
Yet blessed are the pair
who traverse this door,
and hang a trawl
on my wall!

( OH-I have missed many errors,
only recently have I began to proof my work.. lol...
I enjoy hearing that I am in good company..)

a huge neon red ball glows :
pink shadows trace
a smattering of white
cauliflower on the pale
blue back drop.
the circular edges meet
like any black ink well
defined iris dropping,
its fiery gaze too quickly
behind lush green fringe;
to be caught on film...

betwixt brain, ears and lips,
is little space,
enough for errors to slip
like kisses..

a free ticket:
the cost
lost among
empty amber bottles,
as the strum
of Bass strings
ring, and conch
shells sing,
in a garden
of daffodil leaves
and Purple
Iris flowers.
Water laden
Glad blooms
tip heavy on slender

Behind glass:
casually embroidered stitches,
on fingertip worn
cotton, aged and yellowed
placed lovingly
by my sister,
the edges frayed
wrinkles set

The prayer
to carry me
safely through
the night
hung behind my
22 years
after mother's
ceased to pull

Father's Day Tanka

a boy i watched you
Dad, your hand on the tiller;
eyes, the horizon.
You spoke of charts and of stars;
poets when you gave me sails.

Sophia where are you at?
a dangling preposition?
finishes nothing?
carries you nowhere?
Leaves one asking questions?

Moths, gnats. flies, and frogs:
Summer festivities swarm.
Family and friends with dogs
Pour out liquor and charm.

Summer sweat, joy and food
amidst world doom and gloom.
Capture stills of the brood
Yes the years do zoom.

campfire wood
burn dry logs
Smoke no alarm

What to say at the end of a long day?
Translucent amber sandalwood fog,
Encompasses me softly lifting away
The residue of grime that does clog.

Blue wren's ribbon sway song; nary
Feather pillow, nor percale bedding
Fold dogged corporal being in truth.
Lost the drooling sleep of my youth:
Shut my lashes upon world's offering:
Dreams bring freedom from voluntary

Choices as heavy as a soul Hanging in
purgatory for eternity,That waits to
Understand the fine print of freewill....

Lips as soft as butter crushed my manic mouth,
Insistent hands searched my vacant body,
Passed ears in stark lust~ Whispered words flew,
Senses stoked with lust ...I heard only white noise

My hands, and eyes traced burgeoning trails south
our Desire surged against a cage locked in latency.
My Dark dreams fade as reality seeps through,
cloying walls and their sharp eye glom all our joys

Insanity's cloak of freedom draped loosely
around my mind, like a corset silk lined,
soft skin yields to movement: by dint of mouth,
It pulls and pinches reminding me of the bind
where tau[gh]t string meets an eyelet on cue.
and Madness stowed: a stay my brow behind.
Strings hang as twisted wind chimes-toys
for strangers to pull, tangling carelessly...
do you see now what society has done for me
a women who walks languidly?

a chill creeps through my skin,
raises my hair and waters my eyes
my past finds me lost again
in present tangential theories
For you the world may
be peanut butter and jelly
with a roll of the belly
Respect good graces and joy to you
Unleashed angst show me mercy, tolerance
As I dream of delusion's deliverance.
Conscience of vivid words, I'd never
Heard printed in the works revealed
by sages I've only just met....

listen carefully
for words won't
be repeated tonight
don't speak while the
lights are high, clap
loudly, scream out
if a mood strikes
now in quiet

talk deep
some are light
but most
keep it real
and if you can't
handle that
would rather
not feel
best stay
out of
