The Art of Tea and Poetry

The Art of Tea and Poetry

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…
The Bonsai Tree
In an Arboretum of towering trees / The major attraction is the topiary / Visitors flock to this botanical art / Deaf to the tidings of twisted bark Dwarfed gnarled confined an…
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 / La…
in the shadows of waning light
two senescent lovers lie / between sheets of waning light. the moon spins the dis·s·ever·ing tale / of their relentless nothingness. / apathetic eyes beseech the dark / f…
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 …

Molecules of Moments... A Poetry in Pieces


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
seeking light stolen by disobedient leaves as
tendrils titillate moments of monotony

A choir of nightingales
sing Agnus Dei to
Barber's Adagio for Strings in
treetop cathedrals
dissevering Siamese souls at birth
an aging and disheartened Earth

An unfinished requiem chiseled in stone       
paths of a wolf carved into form
the destiny of a day drips into the dust of
D minor dungeons echoing regret
off rusted walls of innocence

Rococo realities on wall-papered galleries
Poems stumbling into tapestries of mime
Algernon's Victorian roses and poses
Shades of black shimmering through
crystals of rime
Droplets of dark on mirrors that don't know me
A slither of silver steals a single pulse of pain
Undressing a promise Light strips Night
A modest star
Pulls down the sky

Pinch of Pepper:
Molecules of Moments in a poetry in pieces. Night begets Dawn. Dawn begets Day. Day dies diligently as she falls into Dusk. Twilight diminishes her lingering light into mystical molecules of obsidian Night.

Weathering Whispers
Wrinkled whispers / Kiss my skin / Leaves of life change as / Autumn begins Cultivated currents / Of mellowed mind / Carry me to manors of / Seasoned rhyme Reality becomes relative / Emotion humbly dies / Time only governs thos…
Auguries of Innocence
Man is an island of thought and emotion / Floating purposefully on aimless seas / Confusion and conflict float on his waters / Bleeding and aching debris William Blake offered lighthouse vision / To the mind of the intellectually blind / Perpetuatin…
A Rhyme from Romper Room
Jack and Jill hit the campaign trail / To fetch a bushel of voters / Jack fell down for being a clown / And Jill went Galluping forward Up got Jack from his stumbling act / As fast as he could caper / To Bannon's tent hoping he'll fix the dent / With c…
Ignorant Pillars of Clay
Are deaf to the symphonies of the Milky Way / Celestial keys and chords of fire / Orchestrate a moonlit sonata on an Aeolian lyre / Orion's hand in Beethoven light / Conducts the overture illuminating the obsidian night
The Desert of the Real
I am a desert of / orphaned emotion / Bruised and battered by a brutal sun / Wisdom and wilderness were once my element / I was created long before life had begun In each crystal of sand / pumps the heart of a universe / Constructs of conscious…
