Weeping In The Green

 

 

Weeping In The Green

 

I’ve stood outside the graveyard fence then watched the grieving group

I did not know for whom they mourned but felt their heaviness

for loss cannot be measured by the emptiness one feels

nor by the open chair… Read full post »

When Pan Played Folly

 

 

When Pan Played Folly

 

I heard the flautist in yon woods

weave notes of tranquil pause

and I was taken to a place

where youth became me for a time;

The solution to the equation

lies in the sum of understanding

where the journey ends,

A Knight’s Decision

 

 

A Knight’s Decision

 

He sit his steed with sword and shield

then looks across the plain,

before him rests the scarlet woods

where tales do tell of long lost men

who dared to enter, thus,

then wander endlessly about… Read full post »

On One Misty Morn

 

 

On One Misty Morn

 

There stood an outline in the mist of one who beckoned me

and I approached with measured steps at best hesitantly

a wisp of breath broke from the form as I leaned in an ear

but not… Read full post »

Poet's Dream

 

 

Poet's Dream

 

I wish a place that I might go to watch the restless sea

I’d sit upon a large gray rock then dream a pleasantry

smell the salt high in the air as waves crashed on the shore

and when… Read full post »

We challenge our minds

by what we see; by what we hear

and although we wish it true

some lies are always near

to me as well as you.

Their Names (a Vietnam recollection)

 

Were that I could remember names I’d tell of all my war time friends

who had my back as I had theirs until the time it ends,

for some are lost out in the field; projected loss, they say,… Read full post »

Thursdays

 

On Thursdays I remain to be seen

with no particular place in mind;

 

Been known to stand on corners,

I carry in my head to bed

that I’m inclined to lie awake

Personality Disorders

 

 

Personality Disorders

 

I often think on who I am

and whether I bring sun or rain

to each one’s day I enter in

at just a passing glance

or hours spent in in talk, perchance;

Mist upon the wildflowers harken a new dawn

summer through the songbirds sings its morning song

The Blue Flowered Teacup

 

There’s a smell that holds the air about;

of chemicals, of incineration, of death.

 

Duke walks the five foot of leash before me

and I watch as he reacts;

sight, smell, sound are his tools… Read full post »

Opinion

 

 

Opinion

 

What cause brings out the human;

for most days are filled with opinionated arguments

I Saved A Tear

 

In long reflection there were tears

and so I save just one

for each time that my eyes relieved

the pain within my heart;

I saved a tear for my first scrape

which caused my knee… Read full post »
