Ancestral Memories Sonnet
Measurement of Pythagoras
Science of Hermes
Surazeus 2013 10 28
"Memories from lives of my long-dead ancestors
are awakened by faces of people I see,
and I dream interactions of love and war
over landscapes that shape my old world view.
Some faces evince no visio… Read full post »
City Of Ravens
© Surazeus 2013 10 26
Green mist rain drips from purple raven wings
when they gather at red moonless twilight
on power lines that hang over gabled roofs,
and snake among leafless branches of trees
who trap whispers from naked telephones.
No lightning strikes to animate dead flesh

Fall Of Our Green Giant
Surazeus 2013 08 30
13 April 1939 – 30 August 2013
Who could build an oak coffin big enough
to contain seventy years of grand vision
from that Irish giant who wields shovel pen
to unearth silent fear with chanting songs?
Now clovers sprout… Read full post »
Pyramid Of Poetry
2013 08 23
We climb the pyramid of poetry,
ascending steps of self-expression high
above myopic view of Narcissists
from lyric through dialog to narrative,
to gain enlightenment about truth of life.
Lyric is the voice of an individual
who opens their eyes to perceive t… Read full post »
My Journey Of Belief
When I was born, I was an Agnostic Atheist. I did not know about the idea of God, a conscious being who purposely designs and creates the universe. I only knew about things that exist which I could perceive with my senses and conceive with my mind.
When… Read full post »

Standing on an iron bridge in cold wind
Arthur, weather wizard of Yakama,
hurls his book of poems into frozen river,
casting his bread into waters of tears.
I read your poems like a child eating snickers
in hot summer sun by a swimming pool,
chocolate visions… Read full post »

MTV once showed actual music videos
but now shows people arguing in houses.

but now shows delusions about aliens.

O Come All You Curious
2013 04 23
O come all you curious,
seekers of true knowledge,
O come to investigate and observe.
Search and investigate to learn the laws of nature.
O search and investigate,
O state and hypothesize,
O test and experiment,
Laws of Nature.
O speak, schools of… Read full post »

A hymn for scientists, sung the tune of Silent Night
Twinkling stars, shining moon,
weaving light through our souls.
Round in spirals molecules spin,
flashing infinite spirit of mind.
Dream with celestial light.
Breathe with terrestrial air.
Beaming sun, swirli… Read full post »
I am descended from Anne Bradstreet, the Puritan Poet of Massachusetts. Her father was Thomas Dudley, a descendant of the Sutton-Dudley clan that was prominent during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, most notably Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, and Sir Philip Sydney, the poet. Anne notes in several… Read full post »
Seth MacFarlane plays a misogynist like Stephen Colbert plays a conservative -- to mock their attitudes.
Coherent View of Life
I found this excerpt from the Wikipedia article "Modernist Poetry" fascinating in relation to the epic poem I am writing.
"After some heavy editing, "The Waste Land" in the form in which we now know it was published, and Eliot came to be seen as the… Read full post »
I have never taken a poetry class in my life. I taught myself
how to write poetry by reading all the works of the greatest poets
in many cultures of the world, and studying lots of song
Sounds of Silence by Paul Simon inspired me to write poetry in 1984.… Read full post »
from the Poetic Encyclopedia of Everything
Maneuvering over waves of gold sand
across desolate wasteland of silent night,
black-shelled dung beetle rolls ball
of precious poop while chanting hymns,
navigating across vast infinite nothing
by shimmering light of sparkling eyes.
how white you glisten covering flower meadows
where months ago I lay in summer glow
languid in delight at sunlight on my skin.
Names Of Dead Children
2012 12 20
Flowers bloom in fields after bloody war,
and sun shines bright after destructive storm.
Voices echo in dark empty classroom
after bullets paint vibrant souls on walls.
I write names of dead children on locked door.
Ten million children who play on lush… Read full post »

My plane crashed on the island of the dead,
now I chase weird dreams in my broken head.
I run through labyrinth of my memories
and stare in mirrors clutching rusted keys.
I am alive because I am a ghost.
Change the channel in my head, I… Read full post »
Business was made to serve needs of people,
while people were not made to slave for business.
Frog who dreams on Wei-Shan Lake,
now that Princess Ma-Gu kissed you,
speak more clear your magic tales
so the whole world can hear your song.

There is no god except my consciousness.
This body and this world are all we have.
Treat others how you want them to treat you.
Do what you want as long as you harm none.
