DEW, WE CRY

DEW, we cry
\so loose–
we sigh
a tear
a moan
the secret
we keep
unknown
a lonely
lonely soul
for life!

A LONELY CHILD

I shed my tears
and night skin
that moon too
and all along
lonely voices
sing to me

“You filthy child
born of poverty
what good are you”

I hung my head
and shoved along
followed my tears
gutters love pity
but angels sang
“lovely one, child…”

Oh, love come soon!
a gentle hand is good
but the eye of pity
burns through my soul!
I am a little boy
and children hurt too

I wither in denial
and alone, what are tears
if my love is ignored
what is a poor child to do
if my smiles are ignored
humanity has many hearts…

one to love
another to hate
then again —
the killer is you
and my blood
drips from your hands

Oh, love deny
the beasts in life
and gather here
within my lonely heart
a kiss from heaven
mother-love come soon

THE POOR BEGGAR

THE poor beggar called loneliness
no worse have I see —
tattered clothes and holes for sock
and outstretched arms —
not for money

but for love

MY BARE WALLS

I NEEDED someone
strong to lean upon
so I leaned upon
my solid bare walls
Such held me —
with strength
and did not
cause me pain
So I lean and cry
upon the surface
of those solid walls
and wish to heaven
that my walls
could hug me back

MY FALL

YES I did wish
to be the one
you wished
to take
your heart
above the skies

So sadly I fall
from your vision
I cry each feet
they cut — the fall

I am only human
faults I have
fantasy not…
what I possess
Is only human flesh

You say with song
such tune I devour
a concert for God
HE keeps the mood
Such decision for you

In repose I sing
my tender love
you remain in heart
such love is eternal
and love knows us

PRAYER

WHAT faith
I have seen
from the young
to the elder
display a greatness
— in some
Empty have I been
myself
for many a year
— then some

My message
to the One:
I forgive myself
— please come
the lonely thing
within is weak
— it withers
without your Light
Such blessings I pray
— visit me
this day and stay forever
Amen…

THE FIGURAL

WHILE on a walk
through my forest
across a bridge
of ancient wood
I chanced to stumble
upon a treasure
a heart shaped
piece of puzzle
— a figural
’twas the last
of what I wanted
to touch the love
I so much needed
it’s shape and color
perfectly fit
— interlocking
then I sat upon a log
thunder struck
by the beauty
— of it all

OVER THE CLOUDS

MY feet bleeding
have walked upon
red roses

Tenderly touching
an echo of my soul
longing for a home

What distance away
in desperation walk
shall I return home?

Far I fear… so far
away beyond the hills
and over the clouds

I GAVE AWAY

I gave away
a smile today
in a most
unusual way
It was not
with a thank-you
even though
a polite-depart
but cast I did
like a fisherman —
I placed it upon
a silver hook
in hopes of catching
a hungry heart

INCONGRUOUS MOMENTS

WISHING-well
— sometimes I do
unraveling dreams
— sometimes caught
between fingers-do
— slippery knew
notes running
across ivory key
minor pains
thrumming-heart
melancholy needs
dripping tears
there a light!
Golden tongue
— cursing darkness
honey-laced
Incongruous moments
–love them most!
