The Hump

Lost in a void, Finding direction a lost cause, Looking at the hump with anticipation, Ready or not here I come. (Turning 40 while looking back at what 40 years has brought as well as what the next 40 years will bring.)

Armature Photography

I decided to try something and wow, it turned out way better than I ever thought it would, especially with my armature eyes.

Hungry

Sat down one night to Discuss, The insomniac brain Discouraged, From the Disgust, Of Devising, This Divine, Poem of Destiny, In this Densely, Populated and Dramatic, Population of the Drastic, Totally, Droopy, Down in the Dumps, Over the long lost Dunes, On the sandy coast of Djibouti, Among the long lost June Days, Watching early…

Expanse

Wading waste deep, Looking out over vast expanse, Water forever as far as the eye sees, Vast seas to explore, For the vast eternity before me, The depths to the air, All for me, Mine, a land made for me, Out of thin air it came to be, A place for me to be and…

Love One Another

Look into my desire, Scry my heart, Lay out your cards, Delve into my soul, Know me my love, Become my sage, Yearn to know my heart, Yearn to break my wall, Siege my love, Take me captive into your will, Swallow me deep into your eyes, Lure my soul, Seduce me my love, Capture…

The First Kiss of True Love

Waketh upon early morn, Finding my hearth fully adorned, Mistle toe and mirth, Spread about with cheer, Last nights mirth laying under silken sheet, Light color hair, Rosey red cheek, Deep green eyes, Dimpled cute and chubby cheeks, Laying beneath my sheets, Next to me, Adorning me with her morning beauty, Skin soft as yougurt,…

Hydroplane

Twisting pathways, hands hanging through the branches, Swaying breeze pushes past, While birds sing high above, Melodies wash over me, Dancing in the meadows, High on atmosphere, Adrenaline pumping through my veins, Invigorated, hydro planning fast, On the airwaves of life, Listening to the fast beat, As the radio buzzes away, Song after song, Melody…

Poppy

The poppy seed child, Lay her seed, There she lay, Under mid-afternoon sun, Water can in hand, Sun hat a drift on the breeze, Blowing her seed across the field, To lay and land and grow. As she grew older, The pavers came, Laying brick upon brick, Of yellow solid gold, Leading to the far…

Arise

Arise, arise, arise, Arid Arabian ghost of the night, Thief garbed in white, Blackened forged scimitar, Sharp point with viper tongue, Arise, arise, arise, Arid Arabian prince of might, Royal hand decorated in splendor, Power held in rings, Voiced by royal decree, Arise, arise, arise, Arid Arabian whisper on the wind, More powerful than the…

Sticky Wishes

The wish that stuck, hard against the cake, stuck to sweet plate, spooned by fork, cut with knife, flayed about by, great white chompers, molars and teeth, grinding it to a pulp, to wash and fizzle, until next year, when again I try to catch the wish.
