The Art of Tea and Poetry

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…
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 …
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 p…
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
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 …

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

Below this wilderness
A river runs rampant
Minerals and molecules of undiscovered days
Deep in the silt where Past meets Future
Self walks Presently into an unknown phase

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 / metal scales bear the weight of / folded clothes and memories and / gi…
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 / Laced with rubies and lust Spiritual trails / Blazed with topaz and morr…
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
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…
