Glow Of Sunlight
© Surazeus 2014 03 11
Hello sunlight, my old friend,
I have come to sing with you again
because a vision swiftly gliding
beams bright rays while I am writing,
and the vision that glows outward from my eyes
mirrors skies within the glow of sunlight.
On flowered hills I… Read full post »
King Of Dreams

Josh staggers drunk in sparkling purple mist
from conference hall where writers sell their books
at midnight lost on dark Seattle street
where teeming crowd of people surge in waves
of leering faces painted orange by beams
of light from glowing lamps on tall ph… Read full post »
All Earth Before Me
2014 02 25
Wordsworth wanted to write long epic tale
explaining philosophy and nature of life
but died clutching unfinished manuscript,
so I retrieve fallen pen from his hand
and step forth from cracked gate of paradise,
then, with all Earth before me, explore
nature… Read full post »
Walk With Death
2014 02 24
I walk with Death who tells me about love,
how one must give and expect nothing back,
while millions of people die from disease,
war, starvation, loneliness, and despair,
and stars twinkle over shimmering lake
as we lie together in blooming flowers,
and I care… Read full post »

Blind purple giraffe of Seattle tells me
her eyes are movie cameras, so I dance ballet
on ice eye moon with Yuna Kim till death
calls collect and requests her dream key back.

where cars growl, and get… Read full post »

Fifty Years Ago Today
2014 02 09
Fifty years ago I was a zygote
in warm secure womb of my singing mother
when four young boys from Liverpool England
arrived in America by airplane
to sing tunes that resonated with hearts
of growing young girls who screamed with delight.
They held… Read full post »
New Voice Of Prophecy

Lead Us Home
2014 01 28
I wandered lonely in despair
on signless road going nowhere.
I saw pretty girls in a field
placing flowers on graves of soldiers.
Who is that man planting flower seeds
in meadows where our children play?
Lead us home, Pete Seeger, lead us home.
I saw… Read full post »

that glowed thousands of years in Ephesos,
until Saint Nikholaus,… Read full post »

City Of Ravens

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

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

Standing on an iron bridge in cold wind
Arthur, weather wizard of Yakama,

O come all you curious,
seekers of true knowledge,

A hymn for scientists, sung the tune of Silent Night
Twinkling stars, shining moon,
