The Art of Tea and Poetry

Annals of Abraham
Pregnant night aborts the dawn / Poxing the earth below / Festering fields of human hate / Drown reason in irrational throe Hissing hostility pierces the sky / Scattering mo…
A Nursery Rhyme
Isaac and Ishmael fight over a Wall / Citizens and soldiers equally fall / Concessions and compromise and making amends / Will not put the dead back together again
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…
A Poetry Rite
Sunsets sing dirges to days that are dying / Dusk awakens somnolent sands from their rest / Morrows impede passage to misbehaved memories / Persistent prose unearths emotions suppresse…
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 …

A Diligent Dawn

Shards of a broken wine goblet
Drift on the surface of withering waves
Dawn dethrones the waning night
Saffroned fingers arouse a day

In nakedness she wears her loss
Hot flashes heat hormonal strife
Fermented tears and sweated dew
Awaken somnolent seeds to life

Fervor and fury a woman crowned
Challenging Eastern light
Audacious and bold in character
Femininity her strength and might

Indignant cells spewed their scorn
And spread their malignant blight
Surgical swords did their deed
Removing her female right

Silver sunlight tints her hair
As she ventures towards the west
Wisdom, wit and wealth of mind
Assets from life's queried quest

The wine of an aging chalice sooths
The soul of a dying day
Its crimson pastels the diligent dark
As moonbeams pave her way



Coming Home

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 / for glimpses of deserted memories. two bodies / lie list·less / bre…
A Sighing Sonnet
Syllables plunge into an ancient songbook / Octaves and sestets of obsessive love / Perusing Petrarch's Canzoniere / Iambic portrayals of Laura de Noves Shakespeare loves on the lines of a couplet / Spencer stanzas virtue in his Faerie Queene</…
The Eagle
Perched high / On ragged crags of / Wordless thought / He waits A crystalline lake of Loneliness / Lays supine below / Insatiable hunger burns / Within Masterful talons / Thrust deep inter her waters / Grasping the seasoned voic…
Molecules of Moments... A Poetry in Pieces
Sunset and Dusk / / At the edge of Earth sun beams sigh as / sky turns from wispy watercolor to rust / Mountains empty their melancholy minds over / moors mumbling pages of prose / Lost landscapes decompose as / Day dies in the arms of Du…
