A Diligent Dawn

Coming Home

Sitting on speed, metal wings in flight
black ribbons below adorned in sequins of light
screeching engines startle Night
as Time descends
Feet on ground baggage bound
metal scales bear the weight of
folded clothes and memories and

door opens wide, I'm inside
embraced by the fragrance of children
dreaming their mother home

Morning Ritual
Nocturnal silence... The day is deep in sleep  / shhh!  her mind whispers / morning has not yet broken / going into tip toe mode  / a crick-crack explodes / plastic on plastic startles the air / a neon light flickers into life / a grotesque f…
A Lone Traveler
A solitary spirit / Effeminate in form Asphalting miles of memories / Treading many a storm: Intellectual roads / Laid with diamonds and dust Carnal paths / Laced with rubies and lust Spiritual trails / Blazed with topaz and morr…
