Placid Sea, Published at MasticadoresIndia

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

Placid Sea

The moon, a placid
sea, reflecting back

a mantra
of meaning

watching the sunset
along a coast, depleted and
dry

tears leak…

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

October Sky

an October sky
cold, with stars speaking
an age of reason

to the moon

the leaves continue to fall
with emotions bound
together

like my heart

broken and chasmed
yet stitched tight

with threads formed of light

hope’s truth

I walk along the streets

a desolate
and desperate domain
filled

with shadowed pain

in the alleyways, and
along the riverfront

whispers

brought forth
turning my stomach end over end

like butterflies

arising again
under the brisk, and breezy moon
I see you

hope’s friend

our one and only truth

hope’s truth was inspired by the poem Hot Ashes, by Benjamin Nambu.

the moon’s cusp

grass seed reminds me of
the inevitability

of time

skipping through fields, dusty
and wheat filled

as I grow through the earth’s crust, learning
I’m just enough

of the magic living inside the moon’s cusp

relating to me, another aspect
of the you

I see

it comes to me
while I lean into the garden of being

and transcend the pain I’ve been feeling

mi amor

the moon swings into view
as the relations of me become you

wandering no more, I implore

you from the dance floor
a chore

among the rabble we’ve come to adore

wondering about the nature of love lost
in between the songs sung and hung on the door

Can you imagine the depths of the seas mi amor?

I can too.

know they remind me of just how much I love you
