For Rant Shall Rate Reap Naught


[Don't make me have to spell it out for you. Cause' I will. This poem then, is for all of the un-read, un-rated, starving artist out there. Isn't it time? Surely there is room for us all in here.]

I wonder who will make my bed

who will clean

after I am dead


who will sort and fold with love

toss the rest

sell or shove


And what of all my precious bits

that gathered dust

while they sit


I wonder if they'll find a home… Read full post »

Lurie Knows


Come with me

while I wait on a train

past aged columns

Columnar Age

behind the tall hedge lies

the Lurie

Behind the Hedge

"Hush now," and come inside

"Heed what I tell you."

Fire in the Sky-PGI Lunacy

Fire in the Sky


 A ground shaking

dog quivering

bombastic disturbance

until the wee hours of the morning.

In my front yard

over the Pond...for a week.

LUNACY! Yes a folly of indulgence indeed.

The Pupa



In the dark I am all in

a chrysalis

and all there is

I am enough



I climb into the hammock

a mandatory rest

a dry out

warm up

before tackling the deep

Absence in Colour

Silently waiting for it matters not

beauty glows here mute

Reticent and paper thin

the page still rests unturned

Sage wings

Reluctantly the shallows teal

tranquil of deaf remains


Taciturn this prayer for water comes

The Instant

Larson's head shot


The day and the moment

are all but the same

when Larson and we met

connection was made


a heart beats

and then jumps

or maybe it skips


but electric the movement

is soul deep

and dips


then inside your being

the shock renders mute

So how is it you're surviving this scorcher?

Today it's 102 degrees here in Chicago. Our top floor pied-a'-terre, with the fantastic view, just doesn't get any cooler than 79/80 degrees. I've got all the blinds closed and dark sheets over the windows. So much for the view. The trees… Read full post »
