The Art of Tea and Poetry

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…
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…
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 …
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 pag…
Delphic Dialectic or Socratic Simplicity
A sentimental sprite of / Stravinsky's Spring Rite / Dissonant days gone by / Urged a freckled face boy to / Mischievously deploy / And capture a callow girl's eye…<br …

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
Perpetuating perils of paradox
To a universe of Newtonian design

To see the world in a grain of sand
To smell paradise after a shower
Infinity breathing through the lungs of a wave
Eternity residing in the heart of a flower

Beauty exists in the ordinary
In the frescoes and sculptures of life
In the struggle of Man to create himself
Not in polaroid perfect delight

Ignorant pillar of clay is he
Believing in heaven ever after
Frivolously ignoring the divinity of Day
Forfeiting Elysian encounters

Man walks erect with eyes wide open
Into the Dark Ages of technical time
Praying to pixelled Providence
His happiness industrially designed



A Game of Chess
Two armies / On a checkered field are placed / Brother against brother / Ancient hatred retraced Ishmael and Issac / Born of synonymous seed / The younger hewed ivory / The older ebony cleaved Abraham's sons / Great nations promised both<br…
Huxley's Kaleidoscope: O Brave New World
Chaotic pieces of tinted glass / Kidnap loitering light / Slivered images of a history / Pause in fluid flight Frantic fragments frolic / On the landscape of man's mind / Corporation coated color / Change the pigments of our time Pharmaceu…
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 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…
Cogito Ergo Sum
Trees of autumn weep their beauty / Aging rainbows fall onto an anemic earth / Intellectual tears of / I think therefore I am / Cry molecules of philosophy / Over deaf grasses of high tech generations / I am the last leaf / Clinging desperately onto…
