A lion dwells in your sentient savanna / Persistence and purpose his badges of strength / Urban forests breed banality and bromide / Seize him and purge Man of his shallow decent…
An Arpeggio
An arpeggio of wayward notes   / Plucked by fingers of clay / Chromatic chords of bleeding thought / Melt atonal black to grey / A lonely scale pours liquid morrows / Over k…
Death of a Dove

An Arpeggio
An arpeggio of wayward notes   / Plucked by fingers of clay / Chromatic chords of bleeding thought / Melt atonal black to grey / A lonely scale pours liquid morrows / Over kidnapped rhyme / Beauty and ugliness dance a dirge / Across a six string…
Molecules of Moments... A Poetry in Pieces
Night / a weeping willow of water wails / a worried wind stumbles into / a lonely acacia dovening in the desert / a compassionate river runs recklessly / over brooding banks and stagnant stones / startled stars quiver and shiver nervously / l…
