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

A Cubic Poem

September 1, 2014

Fresh
Quirky
Key of G
Whiz bang
Turkey
Pi equals
Our square
Dance

To your daddy
Oh what a wicked
Spelling be
Kind to your
Forefathers
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

In the Dark

listen dear
do you hear that noise?
not exactly a bee’s bumbling
more a benign bear’s growl
a bassoon out of tune
followed by a hiss
a hoot owl’s croupy cough
is it the greedy grunt of a ravenous pig?
the snorts of a wild boar’s nose
pressed to fecund forest floor?
whatever it is
that eruption at the door
please turn on the light
i can’t take it anymore
oh my god!
it’s granny’s snore

Hermit Crab

hermit crab peeks out
thinking he is camouflaged
my camera clicks

I Died Last Night

June 5, 2014

I closed my eyes and died last night
while whispering my prayers
and slipped into the painless void
the dark of nothing there
but then I heard a singing bird
and the odd croak of a crow
“Shut up!  Shut up!”
he was certainly annoyed
I wondered why so?
my eyes then opened in surprise
amazed to be again alive
another day to live and learn
to shine the light that burns within
one more day to breathe and be
before I die again

lemonade

Summer Song

first make the lemonade
lemonade for sale!
paint a picture on the paper
a yellow cup of lemonade
“lemonade” it says  “25 cents”
tape it to the big box
set on the sidewalk
get the pitcher, paper cups
and a chair for you and me
then we both wave and yell
“Ice cold lemonade
lemonade for sale!”
