The Art of Tea and Poetry

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 …

Wrinkled whispers / Kiss my skin / Leaves of life change as / Autumn begins Cultivated currents / Of mellowed mind / Carry me to manors of / Seasoned rhyme <…

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

City of Avenues
Metal rain falls on the City of Avenues / Launched hatred tears into urban skies / Falling thunder pierces fleshed emotion / Hammurabian thought precipitates / Eye for an eye Metal rain falls on the City of Avenues / Atrophied molecules of amity die<b…
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 fac…
