Swallow Silence

 

Rest has been begging all afternoon

Soon soon soon, love.

 

Finally home in my top-floor abode

The end of consciousness is near

 

I slip into coziness and turn up the stillness

Oh love, I'm finally here...

 

But no.

 

Silence chokes 

Tranquility cracks

Obnoxious noise intrudes

 

I feel teenybopper bass notes incessantly Bulging up from the floor be...

Undone


Black white black white

alternating stripes

difffuse the sun

 

Through the umbrella pongee

I see oak-tree leaves

and a scurrying ladybug 

 

A morning bird monologues so loud 

he's scared or proud

like Noah announcing the flood

 

A spider meticulously crafts

her silky sleek webs, shimmering traps

stretched out by the breeze for blood

 

Lizards do pu...

Brave But Not Brainy

 

You'd think they'd know

Where not to go

You'd think they'd see 

The fallen bodies of their friends and foes

 

Crushed skeletons

The scattered dead

Who do they think they are?

Sneaking up, risking lives to get ahead

 

Always hauling bits

Bigger than their bodies

The Power Team plus

Masters of pilates

 

Don't they know

There's nothing to see?

T...

Mocama

 

Swiftly she comes

Smoothly she ascends

Bright yellow petals flap in the wind

 

White brick soft shadows

Afternoon sun

Reflects tabletops, the glassy ones

 

Sleek wooden benches

Independent all day

Save when she sits to contemplate

 

Massive light fixtures

Flirty and fun

Urban Outfitters retro undone

 

Sculpture Park sweats next to

Cosmico sip...

Memorial Park

 

A bronze, winged man holding an olive branch

emerges from his fountain and war-torn stance

 

Deco fence reflects St. Johns River ripples

Cotton tops reveal taut nipples

 

Weary jogger sucks the air

Bluejay announces his high-n-mighty affair

 

Golden Pup sniffs the grass for savory gems 

His human on her phone fights for amends 

 

River sparkles do a dance m...

Unspoken Rule

 

There's silver and air beneath my feet

Seagulls cry out as sailfish swim

 

Coarse white hair covers the man’s jaw

He pulls bait from his hat’s rim

 

The small girl holds a smaller pole

Her voice as happy as a bird

 

Her fiery-orange hat

Shades her rainbow tie-dye shirt

 

Shells spread on white sand and twigs

Hungover from the night before 

 

The ug...

Your Mind is Yours

 

Your mind is yours

Don’t let them have it

 

It's your place to 

explore 

dive

swim

soar

 

Your mind is your

view

from

the

hill

 

Full

orchestra 

to

your

ears

 

Your mind is

flames

in the

Arctic

snow

 

Soft

breeze

moving

the 

milkweed

 

Your mind is yours

Don’t let them have it

Phantom Florida Winter

 

Your breath white like steam gently 

hangs in sway

 

Cloaked in novelty, it's now a

winter game 

 

A puff from your chest out

of your mouth

 

A picture you paint when cold

air allows

 

Squirrels pitter-patter, a chase

in the trees

 

A distant garbage truck booms,

bangs and squeaks

 

Sun crawls higher reflecting

off your brow

 

The...
