Stay swim sip

what else is there but to say

stay sit sip some more

ice a cider pale the ale

the guest bed begs

a lazy troubadour

mornings bring a second chance

sleep rise read dance

Once in a full Moon

Tis all She seems to muster


As slow as Hijra's decampment


As if tied to this cycle of sky

Or earth

Moon absconds

Hypnotizes her guests


Anticipated host

She exudes with a glistening aura

Listening all night to the lazy drizzle

raining down from confused skies

I tossed and turned with the same rhythm and pattern

rushing down


bloating the rain barrel

Safe is a nebulous term

for now

in a place I… Read full post »

Get Out


get out

get in

everwhere you look a sin

get out get in

anyway you choose

 you win

getting out what you put in

getting away with out

lifting the pen

or ear or eye

or hand or chin

white as sin

did they spin 

akin to evil

Blue Beginings



Swinging free

This window has come open

How the air flows


Enabling me to breath

And I feel light

Like a bird

Able to fly

Free from the restraints

Unashamed to cry 

No longer encased in a frame

or shuttered closed

I am free as a silken… Read full post »

Cool Crisp Capitalism


The cool morning breeze

feels more like an early October morning

than the end of an Independent July

Tangling and untangling

pulling me forward

the dogs seek out undocumented sources

We hurry with our walk

the flick in my sandals matching the… Read full post »

Cataclismal Prayer


Oh Dear God

I'm wailing on my wall

for a travesty to befall


Send an earthquake from your hand

split this waisted arid land

Let all mankind end their feud

For this difference is a lie

This Tuesday

This Tuesday

Shooting between drips

outward we trip to catch fading light

Five surface above darken spring pools

Five surface


up through the din into the dim 

So much rain fall causing urgency

for this moment must be gathered

and shared

Out to the dogs

Monday mojo - Crowns and Scepters


Crowns and Scepters

adorning my yard

emblems  of sovereignty

ablaze with the light

imperial insignias

bursting open white.

Tired Dogs

Tired Dogs

Worn out and asleep

Safe is their world of dreams

Where stomachs are full and benches are soft.

Just East of the land of Nod

These two rest their case

Abel now is the first to see

How beautiful life can be.

Waiting Games

Waiting Games

Solitaire salute to the single mom

her patience reigns supreme

suffering dances with doll in hand

blind to this stich and stuffing.

The wait knows not that time can fly

as wither does flesh from inside

each moment played upon tableau

building fondations

Into the darkness

with belief

all  Islands  shall be saved

Not without grief

but with God's bountiful blessings

We must teach trust

and guide all souls

into the light

of enrichment

for which they were meant to serve

Her Name Was Rose

Her Name was Rose

An old friend she

And even though old man winter shunneth 

She has yet to grace us with her sweet arrival

I shall never forget her scent in the warm spring air

Nor the care free wave of her delicate greeting

Very soon Miss Rugosa will appear from… Read full post »

This movie speaks clearly to the injustices of mankind and the meaning of love.

Real honest love. Any Day Now. Find it on Netflix.

It is a must see. Then tell me Why .

 And How do we move forward and not backwards as this nation seem to traveling.
