Dream River

This poem has its origins long ago in a jaunt on the Mississippi river on board the paddle-steamer SS Natchez.

Dream River

As water-light dances through cabin blinds

in scintillant counterpoint to her chattering bow,

a brooding threnody of whistles fills up the big boat's horizon-lines;

the mate checks the bearing of her painted prow.

Well-worn warrior of river life, paddles slap...

Jitters

She woke up with jitters

Drenched in sweat were her clothes

She didn't know what had happened

Watching all around, into darkness she tore

 

Something was causing the goosebumps

On her hands and the back of her neck

She chose to ponder around

Ignoring the sirens in her head

 

"I did have some friends with me

What were their names?"

Her mind was a mess

Was she ...

{Diary Of The Southern Queen Entry #19} {Living Death Traps} 

 

 

 

Well for many year's

now I have a

reoccurring vision, nightmare, illusion

that has me living

out a hellish living

death trap that haunt's

me 🌃 night after

when I am able to

sleep 

 

 

but most night's while

I am asleep I start

to have these dreams

or vision's that seems

so l...

Made of These

The tears fall,

Unstoppable as

rain on autumn hay,

so I let them,

let them sink

as they sing-

paw prints in the snow

against my pillow.

 

He sleeps so quietly

beside me

so I let him,

let him hide in worlds away,

ones hidden in the day,

so he can hide in golden shrouds

of fairies’ dust on candy clouds.

 

The tears fall,

Dampening

November sn...

I had that dream again...

I had that dream again...

You and me dancing on some random beach.

 I felt your hands on my thighs,

moving me gently with your warm eyes.

You were looking at me like if it was the first time, 

the first time of holding me with your warm hands. 

I remember it clearly now.

My head was resting on your chest,

I know you were smelling my hair and

playing with it just like y...

Cottage Garden

Much more than half my life ago

Some chance led us to this place;

Now, my heart is caught and held

By the peace of its earth and space.

 

Some while past, when first she left me

I could not make my soul adjust

But cached it safe within the plot

Beside her memory and her mortal dust.

 

And as the family aged and spread

My lonely tenancy grew content

Past spectres...

The Meaning of the Stars

It became the moon above the ashes,

I winded sight of the streams that gushed through the glaciers,

And I wander about their blanket of flowers.

 

Did the sky become bleak for a reason?

 

To wander about the broken path within the rotting forest of the mind,

To feel sadness down and witness the flames rise from the oceans,

To sit beneath the stars for the comfort of the dis...

There was once a man.

There was once a man,

charming in the flesh

He fell in love with a woman,

who he described her as a universe with the brightest stars.

She was his dream,

a dream that came close with his reality.

There was once a man,

bewitched with all.

He dare not speak,

for not to ruin all.

He cared for his beloved,

as if she was the heart of it all.

Until he met his dem...

When life is but a dream

There exists a time
between sleeping and wake
when only the night owls stir
the street lights flicker to candle light
& nothing but absent thoughts whir.

Reality becomes but a stencil
as the dreamers direct their scape
the black bats cry a warning sound
2 minutes ‘til the curtain calls fate.

As all the possibles become truths -
between broken sparks that are woven together
lost begi...

A Lifetime In A Fortnight

From the sparkling stars
lightening the way on 
dirt covered paths.
To the bristling fields on 
the mountains backs.
A few brief breaths in 
warmth’s embrace.
Gentle eyes carved in 
masculine grace.
We lived a lifetime,
in a fortnight.

Memories shall warm the 
coldest heart.
Even when fates time 
creates a lasting part.
When lonely wolves howl,
the scent of what was,
shall sprin...

Let Not Distraction Keep You!

Let not distraction keep you!

 

When The Drama of the perfume Fades

The Tossing Tousled hair parades

Settle in a lazy muse and the moon no longer lingers,

 

When the mystery seems tired as the night turns day,

The conversation feels hired as the wine wears away,

 

When reality strings together like a cellists’ tune,

Awaking your longing for a richer room

Be the see...

Dreaming

And there lay the girl, balloon in her hand,

Who wanted to travel to Mars.

Until the great day, when somebody came,

And slaughtered that daydream of hers.

 

So there in the field, where the dandelion grew,

And adorned the hilltop in gold.

The girl made a deal, a deal no one could steal,

To one day fly to the moon.

 

She carried that dream, for many a month,

Lollipo...
