weaving in space

March 11, 2015

nights and days roll over
tumble forward
like an avalanche accelerating down the mountain
our epic opus is orchestrated 
in never ending
 crescendo and decrescendo

sun rises and sun sets
I applaud wildly 
then bleed silent tears 
in the ebb and flow of so many years
inhale the fragrance – 
exhale the stench of decay

pray for salvation, seize the day
oh, by the way, there’s a price to pay

clutter, confusion, tax forms
name signed on the dotted line
penalty fees, late charges
day to day
 – dusk to dusk
 – dust to dust

postage and handling extra



Suck And Spurt

December 3, 2014

I’m a sponge

see me expand as I soak up

your disparaging words

I’m a whirling fan

and fling them back at you

like blood sprays

from a well aimed gunshot

Abstract Poetry

October 6, 2014

creweled doilies
be jeweled the table
on which those lowly
rolly pollies fooled
the enabled holy rollers
also known as teetotalers
alligators ate
the motley lot with glee
a juicy plated jubilee
dedicated solely
to sobriety

Reflections on Tomales Bay

September 18, 2014


sky water on the bay

kayak paddles splash

break the smooth glass

we leave a trail of ripples

a swath of dreamy blues

in tandem rhythm we

head upwind to Hog Island

Oysters on our minds

A Cubic Poem

September 1, 2014

Key of G
Whiz bang
Pi equals
Our square

To your daddy
Oh what a wicked
Spelling be
Kind to your
For they
Were jolly
Good feathers

Skating on Thin Ice

August 25, 2014

He sharpens his blades and glides

onto the ice in smooth strokes gaining speed

She (single) follows suit

He offers her his hand

the one with the gold band

and she grabs it willingly with her naked hand

They circle the rink in the darkness of night

their hot breath

forming clouds in the glittered sky
