liquid heart

I look up, and down
liquid heart

in pools, I drown

waiting for the sun to arise
again

in my heart

capitulation strong
and armed

with love

and light
a transformation
in kind

with the river, I flow with time

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

Coal Dust, Published at MasticadoresIndia

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

Coal Dust

diamond-like resilience
made from coal dust

and a little bit of luck from the sun

creates flowers
blooming in the garden of my heart

I trust…

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

shadowed backdrop

I sit down, relating to the beauty
found

upon the flowers in the nearby park
a connection deep

and stark

perfuse
with fragrances misting through the air
alighting

with the greatest of care
and devotion, making me grin

as elation comes up

and I witness the sun hiding in the shadowed backdrop

sunshine enchantment

flowers look through me
to you

telling tales of enchantments
rare, and at times

hard to scale
yet, I seek solace in the diamonds of your eyes

remembering, the sunshine

living in the stream of you and me
is proof

of the sacred and serene, our ultimate
truth

Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow will be released one week from today! Paperback and Kindle versions will be available on Amazon. Exciting times!

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!
