The Desert of the Real
I am a desert of / orphaned emotion / Bruised and battered by a brutal sun / Wisdom and wilderness were once my element / I was created long before life had begun In each c…
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 / T…
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 …
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…
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 soundles…

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 invades the sky
a frigid lake shatters into shards of silver
mountains and seas undressed by the breeze
discard the dusk
Limbs of sun wrap themselves around the bodies of bark as
leaves lick the damask rays of Eos's delight
Stalwart stones glisten with delinquent dew
Fire in flight an Auroral rite
erect minutes and hours into pillars of light

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 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 / Awa…
