Red harvest

A satin scarlet moon roams
The sky at night...waltzing across the sable aisle
Like a bride afloat-her porcelain tulle trailing
Mistral sighing on fragrant Golden Wattles
Mauve clouds cruise rippling lea
Shadow-dancing into trees
Petaled winds peal into bonfires that hush
Lavender blue eyelids flushed with sleep
Spilling quietude of birds' floral tunes;
In night's fragile darkness...
Lamps flicker...fading to a waking night
A Phlox of stars trip to a tune of lyre
Like a 'forevermore'

Heady my senses, as I sit in moonlight's lush
I drain my pen of my ink
And watch the paper soak it up
I gather my scattered words
I etch a poem..



When ink and blood bleed together,
The pain becomes luminous
Writing itself into the mind
Salvation's enlightenment.
Wielding the pen of poetry
Surrendering to courage...
Not letting words die
Giving poetry strength to survive;
On unmarked routes, unknown maps
A carousel of unborn dreams
Drawing on time, finding destinations
Riding a nomadic compass
Trailing, probing, exploring
Guilelessly woven thoughts
Like a Stollen that enters breath
Breaking into words like
Fallen , flushed, blooms
Still fragrant...
Freeing mind from eclipse of
Que sera sera..

My tribute to all who read me here

Gave me
Mind vocables
A symphony of liquid consonants
Hypnotic in their healing qualities
Like an instinct
My wisdom's

That runs
Spilling from
The mirrors of
Foresight, their reflections giving meaning
A tribute that luminesces, honors the
Writers, poets
Who come to 
Read me



When a sentient wind hums paeans
Enthralling, enkindling nature's swayin'
Tinging, etching, time's rhythm
Lustrous colors drip lissome
Phoebus embrace flushed with hints of jasmine
Sol paints aurum, cooling mist glowin'
Gold encrusted words on a lightened breeze
As old as the oceans and the seas
Haunting the pages of destiny
Paeans strung on a wind's journey
Poetry of a soft summer breeze
Murmuring on landscape's chemise
Shadows prance as clouds garland skies
On succulent blooms blazing butterflies
Dawn's mulberry air carries substance and soul
Sun's flame warms basil, mint, knoll
The day with go on with her impassioned rite
Dawn to dusk and to night's onyx light.

Teardrops of the sun

Draining silver of the clouds
To spin on a flaxen breeze,
Raindrops catch the golden light-
Teardrops of the sun

Singing in the summer rain
Fallen blooms paint the sidewalk
A wind chatters to the birds-
Nectarine murmurs

Sky misses a heartbeat, as
A rainbow slips a rendezvous
Into sapphire whispers-
An airbrushed prism

Suffusing emerald trees
Breathing boundless horizons
Where the sky paints its own dreams-
Auroral crescent.
