Shadow of Death

My shadow flirts with the sun
As I caress the darkness
We are one and separate
As my shadow smiles
Anxiety suffocates me
The shadow will soon fade
I shall die
One happy, one not

Fading from life

it’s always august’s end
september’s beginning
that bothers me the most

i feel that brush of cool air
press against me
like a kiss on dead lips

the trees are now painted 
a sunset’s reflection
but all i see is red
in summer’s end

the leaves dance gracefully
beneath the winds
one last time
before they fall

the trees will soon stand 
blank of life
like you and you and you
and my mind
as i remember
each ending
as i watched them 
fall from life
amongst summer’s end

September Nonet Contest

Chill of fall is in the air as summer's greens retreat to keep, until again she will joyously repeat her shades of verdant hues among the leaves of elated trees that sing in Sun. Yet every season bestows its joy as autumn guilds the leaves in gold, in rust and crimson too, in majesty death beholds. A harvest of the seeds we have sown we reap in divine gifts. 8-24-19 ~First Place~

United Nations Plaza

Temperature dip
urban leaves turned
Autumn, sniffing around
for a place to settle
no Farmer's Market
in San Francisco today.

Remember, September

Remember the day,
Remember the hour,
Remember the twin tour.
People were lost,
lives taking at no cost.
What is the reason to give,
when you have no need to live.
Everything is gone,
no reason to live on.
Not even a pray,
could help save the stray.

Giving In To The Gray

Overwhelmed with fear I whispered into the rain
Disarming defenses, Giving in to the gray 
Tearing down all of my shelter within my hollowed decay
While this echoing silence gave every tear drop a name
They begin filling the voids with mundane hopes for a change
Heaven will save me from this hell and blue skies will reign
Lazily lay in green grass watching clouds drift away
It's all but a deflated dream now that the colors have changed
My thoughts have become restless noise of uncertainties rearranged
Damning all of my emotions, lies decorated with grace
Now I stand with a hardened heart in the sobering autumn rain 
I'm disarmed and defenseless, Giving in to the gray

Saint Stephan

Was born a saint
That dreamed died at two
In the morning 
Never very good at tying me shoes
So now I am older, three times the devil
As I dream to see where life leads me
I close my eyes
To escape the desires I never touched
She called me a Romeo, yet I never kissed
The love felt I was certain was bliss
So I walked away
No more waiting, for silly moment’s lost
Played all my cards, and all hearts gone
And now I dig with grave thoughts in mind
For as I stare at the hole below
I see where Saint Stephan
Died at two

Darlingest baby 
I have found your Barby doll
your daddy's last gift

Embedded in the first cell
Shattered rosy womb

Mom broke her promise
Daddy says  no she did not
She only loved you

September Terror

On a sunny clear day,
September 11th came our way.
The planes fell from the sky,
it brought tears to our eyes.
Fathers, Mothers, daughters, sons,
it changed life for everyone.
So bow your heads down and pray,
ask God to show us the way.
For peace and our country we pray,
that there will be a brighter day.

September Flowers Sadly Bloom at Night

September flowers sadly bloom at night
Whose subtle fragrance quickly pass away
In light their vestal beauty hid from sight. 
Confused at being planted by the way
Those treading sorrow's path at twilight weep.
Because of grievous troubles had been spent
And lost a treasure that they could not keep.
Did gain much consolation from their scent
He wipes their tears with petals soft that finds
A secret grief whose heart of those exclude
The hollow words of such offend the mind
Late flowers bloom, kind fragrances exudes
   September flowers do reveal such light
   They truly weep who do so well at night

When you left us
The window was open
There was a single star in the sky
Wind was breathless
A sudden cry ripped the darkness

That night was a book’s last page
Frayed by time and solitude
A lamp was burning in the corner
To thicken the whispers of coming souls
We were speechless 
Touching my mother’s feet
Lean and wilted 
By thousand years ‘march.

September, the cruelest
You did not know the weight of pain
One’s heart endeared 
And cried in a land
Islanded by silence.

September 11, 2014

Remembrance of a tragedy 
touches the souls of all of us 
Death came to innocents as terror 
from the skies struck 
Remembrance of a tragedy 
The names of the fallen 
resound on the media 
Thirteen years ago we saw the face of death in these states
A heinous scene was perpetrated on our soil 
Suicide attack 
   and America knew horror 
Magnificent structures 
reduced to rubble 
The story of man's inhumanity to man 
is a long one 
   The world is still full of strife 
Let us remember the fallen 
and pray for better days

You Are My Sunshine

She is the rustling of the leaves upon the trees
She is the buzzing of the bees

She is the reflection in your tear
She is the whisper of the wind that brushes against your ear

She is a sunflower growing tall from the ground
That is her name upon the grave mound

She is a butterfly, swaying around the flowers
She is the one who brings the April showers

For she is always near, she is what you hear. 
My sisters memory is very dear.

Another Season

Another Day
Another Season
Another Reason

Another Turn of the Clock
Around We Go Where We Stop
We Know Not

To Believe In Myself
In My Goddess

Do I Say
Do I Die Or Do I Dare
To Be Free
To Be Me

Undo Fear
Undo What Others Say

Happy Birthday
Happy Birthday

To Those I Love
To Those I Love Not
To Those Who Love Me

Thank You
Family Enemies Friends
Where Would I Be
Without You All
Never An End To Life
What IS Created Can Never
Be Destroyed

But Always A
New Generation

But Always A
New Begin

Visit Me In September -enclosed rhyme-

If you come to visit, come in the month of September
I'll be there near the old maple tree down the lane
Come sit with me before the start of this years rain
Sit for awhile and the days of our lives remember

Bring a book of your words and quietly read to me
While the golden leaves of this year start to drift
Put your hand on my stone and I'll give you this gift
To find peace in my place near the old maple tree

The seasons come and go, a measure of our time
I remember the light of September caught in your hair
The delights of  each harvest that were ours to share
I rest here beneath my tree, no more hills to climb.....

As the Summer Sun
Is fading 
The Autumn frost
Spent three months waiting
To come and put
All those to sleep
Cherished children
I could not keep

Now the deed is
Duly done
The willows weep
With leaves, they'll shun
The summer greens
Have turned to grey
Thus winters wind
Is on it's way

Snowy blanket or,
Shroud of death
The piecing chill of
Winter's breath
I stand impatient 
"Till it be done
And see once more
When Spring 
Has Sprung

And in that day
When Sun is new
And does the job
It's destine too
My children will
All rise again
Until this cycle
Once more, begins

September Morning

My prayer was heard
you will hurt no more
The Lord took you the next morning.

My heart aches
my soul quakes
I lost you that sad September morning.

My eyes cry
I constantly sigh
since our last goodbye
I will forever be mourning.

I seek you in my dreams
holding me again
stay with me till morning.

The Year of September 11th

The Year of September 11th

The year of September 11th
The year my mother died
The year the World and I
Both sat down and cried

The World, for all its tragedy
Its rubble and debris
I, for the mom who late at night
Once rocked me on her knee

The World it lives life different now
It’s cautious and afraid
I just don’t know how to live,
And so instead I pray.

9/11, 2001 " Page 2 of 2 "

Intelligence first, Retribution next
Clinical response the worlds text
Which free country is next in line
To be hit by this cowardly crime.
New York Cities patriots, suffer further pain
As Fire Officers and Police are slain
They indeed are part of this attack
So many of them never came back
Honourable dads, cousins and wife's
Mourn their lost ones, who lost their lives.
The World will remember
This September deathly sound
When iconic giants crashed to the ground
Hero's in the air, and on Manhattan Earth
Proved to us all, whats humans are worth.

In respect to the decent people who perished on that September day.

September 1

Sunday's, heavy heat 
heralded no warning
change of weather.
Golden finches
flitted from calendula 
to zinnia 
in no particular hurry.
Happy for the long
day and abundant seeds.    
Monday morning drivers 
stop behind
golden buses, impatiently
unaware of hungry birds.
A shiver
in the breeze
catches school children
and feasting finches 
by surprise.
Autumn storm waits 
off the coast 
as the barometer
crashes, a clash
of seasons. 
rain tomorrow, 
Golden sun 
shimmers through 
still green,leaves.
 Summer skies 
make no promise
beyond  today.

Boy's Death

Today, my cat died that I had for nearly six years.
When I found her dead, it brought me to tears.
Animals always bring plenty of joy.
I adopted her in September of 2012 and I named her Boy.
I named her Boy even though she was a female.
It was heartbreaking when I had to say farewell.
It wasn't until she died that I truly appreciated what a special cat that I had.
Boy and I went to Sneedville and spent the last Christmas with Mom and Dad.
She was very pretty and solid white.
She was indeed a beautiful sight.
It's very sad to know that she no longer exists.
Goodbye Boy, you were my cat and you will be missed.

Never Forget

The dust had settled,
Leaving nothing but sorrow
Accompanied only by a terrifying emptiness.

Lights flashed,
The people held their breath.

The sky weeped,
It’s darkened clouds screaming out in a wretched storm,
Shaking the country to it’s fragile core.

Never to be erased,
This day shall forever be etched into this country’s history.

The day the entire world slowed came to a halt.

Never forget that day,
Never forget that perfect September morning,

Never forget the horrible day 
The towers came tumbling down.
