The Art of Tea and Poetry

The Eagle
Perched high / On ragged crags of / Wordless thought / He waits A crystalline lake of Loneliness / Lays supine below / Insatiable hunger burns / Within Mast…
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 / Arid …
The Lioness that Dwells Within
A feline dwells in your caverns of consciousness / Dauntless and determined her insignias of strength / Landscapes withered by winds of shallowness / Embrace her and harrow Man's bad…
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 b…
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 Wrinkle in Time

No longer does she clad herself
In days of faded dye,

Patterned fabrics of yesterdays
Unravel threaded whys

Teen embroidered dawns

Conforming thoughts crochet themselves
Into acrylated lies

Calicoed cries of consequence
Stack questions on a shelf

Interfaced reality
Weaves wires of a vintage self

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 on the lines of a couplet / Spencer stanzas virtue in his Faerie Queene</…
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 / Perpetuatin…
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…
The Bonsai Tree
In an Arboretum of towering trees / The major attraction is the topiary / Visitors flock to this botanical art / Deaf to the tidings of twisted bark Dwarfed gnarled confined and cramped / Refined deformity of stunted chance / Grotesque and beastly …
