The Roller Coaster

The roller coaster leans into a sky the color death. Alongside pines, it winds its broken way, gripping earth’s gray stubble. In the moan of the wind, I conjure up the screams of children’s glee.

Temple of Life

Water, gently filling a bamboo to the brim before snapping,
scared deer running in the right direction, to the hunter,
how many young ones are orphaned in this bloody hunting?

Volcanic Terror

Ashes are all around me, like a pompeii horror scene
Scorching lava incinerates the weak and unexpected
Demoralized survivors rise up and rebuild from nothing

Wave Goodbye

Another friend has made his way to where I cannot go.
The light is on, but no one's home. God put him in the show.
You ask God why. Do people die. But just have to wave goodbye.

A Certainty

Cut your teeth on a sure thing and they’ll all fall out, too soon. The gambler loses a lifetime, while the diligent will succeed. The only certainty; the sure thing, in this life, si death.

Life And Death

Life erodes the body; riding its waves, leaves one drained. Spirit’s education, is wear and tear; the mortal is cut short. Beware the reaper’s scythe; the scalpel of death, cuts swift and clean.

Wandering amongst the darkness, my life was in jeopardy
A pack of stealthy ferocious wolves, were stalking me like cattle
Slitting my throat in fear, blood dripped in pools for the rabid canines

Reclaim Summer

His lover, sits and waits there by the water, singing her song.
Outstretched hands, reaching towards the horizon, wishing him home.
If only, she could raise him up, reclaim summer, from the deep.

On a Goodly Bard's Passing

A goodly bard’s spirit passing in dark sky of night
wafts a long way off into bright radiating light. 
Glad honor; God’s choir now starts to sing.

Threads of sunbeams resurrecting sleepy whole breaths of existence
  Darkness fragrance afloat casting spells wakening transient death
                 Animating progress of blended livable sanctuary

  Together, facing the deathly moment alone

Their soles must be given to free their souls

  Silent witnesses of man's inhumanity to man

Your hazel eyes ask how long I have waited and longed for you Ask the raven, how many times I asked to borrow his wings How many times I have longed to fly to you, beyond the sky

life has left this sterile white garden

bent like a willow, I keen above tenantless beds

grieving those roses that once grew here

You've Got More Waiting To Do, Death

Go away, Grim Reaper. You've got more waiting to do, death
I refuse to let you rob me of this fun, beautiful life just yet
I'll continue to smell it's invigorating fragrance

Beneath The Willow Tree

Loving long beneath the moon, the willow tree our canopy
Sweet the words we murmured soft, promising all, expecting all
Innocence, before the willow cries for lost youth , so fleeting....

Holding hands, 'neath the willow, remembering youthful passion
Peaceful moon, a deeper love transcending time, circumstances
Closing doors, a great mystery they face at last, together

The Phoenix

A phoenix reincarnates, self incinerating. Ashes to revivification; phoenix achieves. Spontaneous combustion that, humans can’t master, purifies phoenix’s spirit.

In my room , I am surrounded by wood
And with my hands together, I lay with a silence mood
My mouth stays closed and quietly,  words stop
To be open thanking God as he is at the top

Silent Killer

Terrible devastating waves came,tearing dowm my home
The beautiful silent house, shook to its very foundation
And then the chilling snowfall, or was that a balm from Heaven

I wake to the sound of red alarms and harsh blue whistles,
Perhaps this is just a false occurrence, it sounds always these days,
The notion is struck down, this world is full of violence.

When summer nights grow longer as winter days get shorter
And the tired, worn out, spinning earth decides to skip a beat
The sunrise genesis over graveyards bear testament

Too brief was the loveliness of September,
it seemed that winter had returned again
with nippiness and rudeness in the flustering breeze!

Every single rose shivered and repeatedly asked
the fierce wind not to let their delicate petals freeze
under the thick frost, as night approached and fear increased!

Oh, did the shy nightingales come out and breath
over let them live through October?
What would have been fall like without the presence of roses?

At midnight, the luminous moon stood still,
glanced over the daffodils' fields below to lend
them her silver color...all thought that snow had fallen too soon!

My roots with rodents rage with space and time distant from life

Ask not my name my limestone bed gives clarity to friends and foe

Farewell to all the memories of kissing oxygen
