Red Ink Of Madness

Often I have dreamt of words..
Embellished with stitches...
Amidst the red ink of madness..
Like an octopus's arms unfolding..

Whilst hearkening to the quivers...
Of voices jade and eager to settle
Mid the overawe grasp of a nettle..
A sleeveless cloak childishly clear...

Cunning apt untouched by tombs..
Sifting 'pon undressed and pure...
Ere the labored throb of passion...

Carriage For All Seasons

Twas mid the glowing hours....Afore Christmas
That all thoughts aloud ~ Were sent off afar....
Whilst the golden age of silence became ~
An instant.. No longer shunned by the stars...

Whilst the orchestras flight ~ Stood to aloof...
To witness  the gingerly calm of peace....
Amidst the sunset of a candle burning...
Slating the shadowy cloaks with decease...
 
 Embrace Ye...

All Abreast The Season

I walk each day...After time ~ Mid a trance..
Whilst each tiny snowflake...Is drawn upon....
By the fountain of breath....From northern grace...
Knocking on the doors...Of the winters swan...

All abreast ~ The skirting of the season....
Softly laid..Upon the cradle of the clock...
A damsels voice....Mid the warm milky sun..
Dazzling the lanterns and the path they walk..

O guide ~ The enthusiasm amid the c...

Swallowed By A Note

 

Yea!...I have seen beyond the moon and the stars..
Unfathomed....Amidst their fairyland dust.....
Whereat shimmering eyes ~ Lay 'neath the scars...
Tugging at the serpent winds....Undying trust...

Yea I have seen... What thou hast never seen...
A callow crag ~ Hanging from a jointed limb....
Next breasted meadows...And the garden between..
Swallowed by a soft note ~ From shadows dim..

Seen...Yet...

Cloaking The Angels

The younger mountain arose....
As the old forgotten sea...
Fell beneath her wandering feet..

While many stars stood still...
With darkness...Visible nearby..
Cloaking the angels eyes and ears..

So they could not see..
Nor hear the voice in the night..
Of the old sea's...Setting tone...

A voice heard by many lost..
Coming from deep beneath..
An upward outstretched hand..

Amidst a gift'less gravity..
From a long...

The Piano Plays

He draws a breath of silk.. Mid a crinkled surface
Whilst he searches...For the angel that saved him..
Without the fit ~ That had once shadowed his face..
Guided by a set hand.. That forsakes the dim...

 

Whilst his blanket...Remains his famous creature....
A shield all powerful ~ Spirited beyond aglow...
With sword standing by.....(A steel liquid of pure)...
To feel the cold tongue of the melting sno...

Kingdom of Solitude

There is a place ~ The kingdom of solitude
Where silence reigns...And inner wisdom is viewed..
Beyond troubles of gloomy faces...Bowing down..
Before a stormy hunter ~ Beneath the frown.

Where miracles traveled for good...Long ago..
Grazing upon the crossing... Where meadows flow..
Waiting for the arch over the universe....
To triumph gently....It's affectionate verse..

Roaming the hillsides.. With su...

Breached By Naked Hands

The earth stands alone... As an edge of sword..
With nay another heart ~ To strike with accord...
Set ablaze by the sun.....Beyond the gauntly..
Foreplay of the aging moon's.....Lessor degree..

Plagued by the journey of legs ~ Upon his brow..
His heart beats bluntly...Between the then and now..
Shored by sniffling winds  ~ Amidst a kings death..
Aside garden's oath.......Reliving each last breath..

Before Heaven Kissing

Reach into the alarm..Of the howling wind..
As thee strip thy soul ~ Before heaven kissing..
Holding on..To the beginning of dark's end..
Where ye shall see...The borders amass the ring...

Where a morning shines....Mid a rivers swell..
As it calls thy name..Mid a fresh meadows hark
Circling the butterfly's wings ~ Wherein thee dwell..
Growing restless aside...The song of a lark...

So abundant....Mid a...

Artic and Bleak


Ye old hickory teapot...So dead and dying..
With naught a clearly sight ~ Nor hope for living..

Whilst steamy clouds haunt thee... Void a sense of foe..
Amidst all thy blossoming woodenly glow....

With belted borders of brass and copper plates..
Upon thy head ~ Assigned to brighten that traits...

Aside thy iron fisted handle. ~ A fiery torch..
Too blind and asleep...To signal an approach...

Placed...

Like A Dophin ~ I Swam

She showed up naked...Wearing only a smile..
Mid a Saturday night....Upon the beach..
Where suddenly...I began to lose my speech..
While thoughts of a buffet ~ Became fertile...

As she gathered a moonbeam...Reaching down..
To softly light up...Once forbidden degrees..
Heating up accordingly...To my will to please..
Flowing like wine.. Over her vanilla gown..

Where like a dolphin... I began to swim..
Her se...
