Hunters Moon

I walk through the darkened lane tonight
A cold wind blows from the sea,
Across the river and over the lea.
And the Hunter’s Moon I see.

I hear a dog fox bark to the night,
Hear a vixen afar reply
Hear the scream of a creature as life is snuffed.
And the Hunter’s Moon climbs high.

Higher she climbs, ever higher
With light like a soft summers eve
Dimming the stars as she rises
Making my heart to grieve.

DEARTH

The solitary sunlight
has plunged into
the arid desert
now severely
lacks vegetation
This drought time
that has pounced
on this plain
shall be the
last straw
that broke
the camel's
back.

Evermore Inked

You’ve asked me,
"why do you cry ?"
I replied,
"only the sky knows this"

You asked,
"Do you require the blue
of day to fade?"
I replied,
"it began at dawn"

each day
my lead wears down
when fingers are scribbling with a stub
will there be anything left of me to write?
or will the lead have seeped into my veins
and my finger take over
marking the lines
of time

Vignette Au Gratin...

"Damn, it was a hunnert and fifty out there today
So I stopped into Sam's Place
just to check out who was around, ya know?
Heeey! I only had one... Swear ta God!"

T.V. reporter in the background

Wow! Can you imagine that?
Today, I was intrigued by reports of a radio-signal
from as much as 8.8 billions of light-years away!
And did you hear about that electric-car that...

"Why ya gotta watch that kinda stuff on T.V."?
Ya make me feel like I'm some kinda dummy or somethin'"

Tales Of Ancient Greece : Reflection

Your beauty stuns all who see you,
Your eyes are shy and filled with secrets,
A slight blush in your cheeks,
Tells of a blossoming love in your heart,
New and fragile,

Like flower buds in spring,
Ready to burst forth with color,
Exuding heavenly fragrance,
Enticing the lover,

Things Missing...?

-I write of things that interest me,
-About the 'cards' that I've been 'dealt'.
-But worry that some doing so,
-Show need of psychiatric help...

Your Poetry is My Muse Hope you are Amused

Have you ever noticed
animals behave better than many human

smaller animals
from oceans to seas to land
evolved
till all culminated
as a monkey

have you ever noticed
monkeys were
the first one to peel
a banana
then man learned it too
how lovely is the feeling
of peeling

monkeys bestowed to you
have shared 94 percent
of their genes

man is asking
how much longer they will take
to share the balance

Love Story

She never says the words “I'm sorry”
But she reveals their substance
when she takes my open hand
in her way, saying all that is needed

Vermillion Red

Ink on our map won't change. The way I cock my head will. While I look for us amongst the topography. How upside down will you hold my world for me today. What may come from conclusions drawn atop crooked necks.

Spin the wheel with me. Make believe culpability belongs here because choice used to. When the floor gets damp what else might I expect from you? You grow gills when the wind gets wet. You breathe fire in the softest way. You lit a cigarette sunset to make vermillion red.

Paint Me A Picture

Paint me a picture
just any ol' view

Paint me a picture
you can make one or
make two

Paint me the sunset
name what you will
paint me a ride oh
what a thrill

Paint me a heart
for I have none you
see

Paint me some love
for you and for me.
