A HUNDRED POEMS – C WHITE SPACE DETOURS

I ride the path by mouth
and nothing more
The pen is dried and tears
have taken a road by south.

Who should feed my vagrant words
they starve at day and flee by night!
And detours, forked by white S paces

And pregnant pauses give birth
to tiny doubts upon my ink!
I watch the children drown there.

A fountain in the square of town
is where I dip my quill,
and the Crier shouts,

“Oyez, Oyez, Oyez!”

Remember all the good souls!

UNDERSTANDING

The acquisition of understanding
also comes with a deep mourning,
knowledge is a double-edged sword

A HUNDRED POEMS – 96 AVOID

SO delicately
I said to
the VOID:
“I love you.”
And quietly
I listened…
NOTHING

THE NAMES OF GOD

IN an incredible feat
of intellectual prowess
I counted the Names of God
and the stars went dark
and all the cosmos screamed
“HE has known! Love…”


A HUNDRED POEMS – 089 (Sweet Pears)

IF pears compare
to apples – smile
then fruit is key
the orchid of hearts
And if rivers roar
like stone stores
then water is rock
and time smooth
my ancient heart
Tiny-tender toe
patter-slide me
the ballerina heart
save me soul

SALT IN THE SOUL

WHAT good is a heart
that lives a lonely life?
I say I saw love one day
through a rain-pelted window
She looked lost in her soul
and he had a sailor’s gaze
across a long ocean of salt
a ship wrecked romance
leviathan devoured their souls
flotsam and jetsam blood
I could never be your sea
I bellow sail winds across bow
and my land is there dear love
across your deep sea death
I love a journey with firm land
my destiny is a beach at a sea
and my toes in the hot sands
not death in deep watery cold
So sail away lovely sweet go

TWILIGHT KINGDOM

WE all sleep as children
a solemn belief of night
the majesty of our life
a twilight kingdom
and I love you my dreamer
who comfort my empty life

A TWISTED THORN

I ne’er guarantee
surrealism through
tilted lenses —
it’s a thing in the heart
A twisted thorn bleeding
in the little lost child —
screaming for nirvana
