Time’s Ashes, Published at MasticadoresIndia

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, Time’s Ashes, is now available at MasticadoresIndia. Thank you to Terveen Gill, and the team at MasticadoresIndia for their continued support, and for publishing this piece.

Time’s Ashes

I drive in circles
manifesting

a purpose

given to me as a child

it’s these coattails of peace and love
I ride

transcending pain, a realization…

I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!

paradoxical serenade

I walk through flower fields
feeling of
home

where we once met

long ago

the cattail tops, and butterflies
float in air

transfixed, and
in awe

I compare
the blood running through veins

and the nature
of name

this

a paradoxical serenade


paradoxical serenade was inspired by the poem My Blood, by Eunice Aformanor.

sanguine love

emotions fill the sky
and my heart

with sanguine love
a pain, like an albatross

of hope and dismay
conjuring various realities

in some
I’m filled with anticipation
while in others

dread
is a constant companion

yet, it’s in between them both
where
a mystery comes up

from the shallow river water, to the ice caps
of the tallest mountain
tops

the shadowed, and shaded land
where the push, and pull of life’s paradoxes

gives each of us a welcoming hand

the nexus

dark and light
a playful design

and entrance
into

a world seen, and unseen
where heart and mind

create the nature of reality

a savior

in between
the play of consciousness
and the depths of the sea

hidden
underneath the nexus of humanity

your eyes, Published at MasticadoresUSA

I am pleased to announce that my poem, your eyes, is now available at MasticadoresUSA. Thank you to Gabriela Marie Milton, and the team at MasticadoresUSA for their continued support and for publishing this piece.

your eyes

nature is full of wonder, all of its
aspects take me

under, into a world seen and unseen
like the breeze

on a cold and windy day
in the midst of a calm sea

I resign, and stay…

I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!

Musical Heart, Published at MasticadoresIndia

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, Musical Heart, is now available at MasticadoresIndia. Thank you to Terveen Gill, and the team at MasticadoresIndia for their continued support, and for publishing this piece.

Musical Heart

morning tranquility
broken and crumbled, my part

of ashes spread all over the flower garden
and within the nest of my heart

made out of sticks and stones…

I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!
