poplar seed, Published at MasticadoresUSA

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, poplar seed, 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.

poplar seed

the apple orchard
lives along the shadows
of a love that lingers

sometimes in the gallows

of a destiny told to me
once upon a story made…

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

sky blue

I see love in you, and the sky blue

wishing upon a falling star
true

I wonder

about nature
and the love living inside my mind

though, this time
I relegate love to another line

of hope, as it lingers in the air
like mist carrying the sun
within its moist, and ever so toiled

breath, I dare

to challenge the moon, breaking apart
my heart

none

can prepare me for the agony
of life’s darkness
to me, each morning renewed

with starkness, so

I run, and run, and run, and, then

Stop.

and, wait at the end of the sun
where arises something new

as I reach out my hand toward you

oblivion’s mist…, Published at MasticadoresUSA

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, oblivion’s mist…, is now available at MasticadoresUSA. A big thank you to, Gabriela Marie Milton, and the team at MasticadoresUSA for their continued support, and for publishing this piece.

oblivion’s mist…

words cut from stone, it is your love shown,
resplendent and full of life,
calling me, it does,
twice

once before time began to run, like the rivers…

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

our final prayer…

the city slumbers, while the giant, along, lumbers,
taking respite, when, in times of trouble,
the mechanical birds, circle in the air,
speeding more than is, a trifle,
fair

spreading wings of love onto the land, protecting the visage
of the wear and tear, it is the darkness
prepared,
and
the light
responding
if they dare…

battle imminent, patrons vigilant, while across the land,
warriors gather, battle plans scrawled,
even as some
drawl
and
make
the last call

needed, as love and light prepare, some scared, others
ready for the nights, and the heights
of desperation
bared
to

each soul everywhere, they take formation, gathering under
the wings of justice, let ourselves stay present to
the life-affirming
sustenance

of the land, and within it, the love of our hearts,
together, sheltered, as
we whisper, this,
our final
prayer…

our hearts open

a cabin retreat, along a placid lake, tucked in-
between the mountain pass,
a valley covered
in shadows
and

amid the sky, entranced…

mirror images, advance, wanting to be one,
breathing into the same intelligence,
not seen, only ever
present
to

the sheen, and magnificence of this moment,
taking in the splendor we’re
afforded

we allow our hearts to open, as love is displayed
so generously to everyone,
awarded…
