The Art of Tea and Poetry

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<br /…
Molecules of Moments... A Poetry in Pieces
Dawn / The darkness moans dismally / as its velvet black is unwoven by / saffron fingers / unraveling a new day. / Silence evaporates as the morning star inva…
The Desert
Naked wastelands of monotony / Exhausting days of bruising suns / Under a lee of memory / Wayward winds churn crystals to dust Time evaporates into slips of silence / Arid …
The Lioness that Dwells Within
A feline dwells in your caverns of consciousness / Dauntless and determined her insignias of strength / Landscapes withered by winds of shallowness / Embrace her and harrow Man's bad…
Molecules of Moments ... A Poetry in Pieces
Day Tresses of ivory tease the air as / soliloquies of song woo whimsical winds / Moments mold into statues of light while / waxing crystals of cream take fligh…

Desert Storm

Dust clouds of pain bring bruising rains
crumbling rocks mock human form
Kneeling in searing sands
shackled to shadows
a captive awaits his fate
in damning soundlessness
Emptiness silences the land -
earth to earth

A face hides behind a cloak of faith
Donned in death he waits
Whets his blade on a stone of despair
his executioner's knife brandished and bare
Shining off Apollo's heartless glare
a thread of life tightened and taut
Morta's shears
cut
cut
cut
ashes to ashes

Hate has gone viral
Executions routine
Cage burning and beheadings
feed the media machine
Virtue gutted and morals disemboweled
Viscera dripping from the hound of hell's jowls -
dust to dust

Democracy
Theocracy
In the name of god hypocrisy
Heaven hangs his head in shame
the Moon has only herself to blame -
earth to earth

Ethical drought dust dunes in doubt
Copper cold and bullets bold
Bones and stones blades and rage
Soldiers undone by a manic sun
Crumbling rocks mock
distraught faces of clay
Dead men walking -
dust to dust
ashes to earth
earth to dust
dust
to
rust



Birth of a River
mute starkness / an exhausted desert / blue sky white night / flesh on flesh / marital rite / in heat, soaked in sweat / body to body / a rapturous duet / / E = mc2 / inception, conception / stardust fusion<br…
Molecules of Moments... A Poetry in Pieces
Midnight / / Artemis peeks through the curtains of Night / ascending the stairs to her balcony of beams / leaning over the balustrade / she pulls back her bow to / catch faceless dreams / Jasmine climbs the trellises of trees / seek…
War of the Words
A page unfolds / horizontally / into a vertical universe… Vowels and Consonants conjugate / charcoaled characters draw their words / silented Syllables scream bloody murder / to the Sentence Structure Warlords. Morphemes of meaning resu…
Molecules of Moments... A Poetry in Pieces
Dawn / The darkness moans dismally / as its velvet black is unwoven by / saffron fingers / unraveling a new day. / Silence evaporates as the morning star invades the sky / a frigid lake shatters into shards of silver / mountains a…
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…
