A HUNDRED POEMS – V

BONE pure and strong
winds feed my wings
a heart tender-string
bleach dreams swim
My life —
it is my own?
then my butler
— death
and dirt so lovingly friend
bury, or wind carry me
to my imaginal realm
between my dreams and stars

THE GRAND SECRET

MY confession to mortals
that I do love death
it has a tender touch
to never hurt beyond
that fire of separation
It only asks a piece
of life’s fire to move
beyond your soul today
That grand secret spilled
we all die day-to-day
and born between moments

A HUNDRED POEMS IV

What this life — explain
nothing dear lover
we give and thou take
a summer breeze and leaf

that oak tree does know
solid and unmoving
seasons tease its leaf
thou eye is steadfast

i walked that path
honey sickle taste
bitter heart nonsense
and lemon smiles sun

my bird sings song
and hast cage iron
what will break wrought

my vortex of life dwell
between and beyond all
phantom dreams us love
and love dance life’s ball

A HUNDRED POEMS III

and today I slay death
it was my way
knife  heart
blade and life

what light
reveal
strength or frail
truth for a man

and the council
those pompous twelve
non-human but eager
to learn

and
Earth is a grand
battlefield petal rose
red soil and bitter torn

in dream or fear dear
lackey heart weak near
the hand grab my heart
hero save what shadow

old man or bag lady
do not stare this way
for all had is given
move along tomorrow

today the gift is given
softly   we praise Him
who always gives more
those flowers in fields

A HUDNRED POEMS (ii)

II

What dreams sweet life soul
that Earth soil so wet-dew
that
touching

tears feeling
my council doubt this dream
but
release

thee
budding light this day
such philosophy stab
thy heart

love     now
skip treacle and grail
passion fuel thou vessel
tickle-being spur now

and
truth

in heart bleed red now
and breath push you
rhythmic
lover

thou gave me

the reason in moment

spring time lips

A HUDNRED POEMS (I)

I

into that fire so brief
Death:
an organ untuned
Spring, the last

we spoke tear;
and gave console
eternal words
not from fear

you beauty cry
my resolve strong
an arm upon heart
cascade tears girl

(does she know) that
love and life demand
joy, fear, life, love
her dress dipped blood

(so long dream here come life)

WHALE MOONLIGHT

Where that ocean screams
and her wave licks light
between promise and realm
sailors scream tomorrows
beneath that watery dream
baritone whale sing sweets
mermaids swim toward seam
A whale tooth bites you
and barracuda needles zone
flotsam drinks too foamy
jetsam dreams sand pebble
and salty eyes crying
sand crust skin itching
that heart beating waves
sperm whale moonlight swell

LET WISDOM SHINE

I watched the souls depart today
and a gray sky cried out loud
“what you give to me I take”
and I said let it be this day

You take the low fruit my love
but all life is above — up there
climb in front of me and higher
and eat the fruit of love dear

What is this fruit of life
if love is not in the mix
let wisdom shine for all
and darkness is turned light

And what you give to me
I take and your heart too
and the world does agree
let wisdom shine for all

Let wisdom shine
across the world
and let it today
and forever more
