MOUTH OF THE RIVER

Live silence, lifelike sounds, Hundreds of bubbles bubbling in leaps and bounds, Wonderous redeeming force, Rippling waves of dramatic sonic disruption, Drowning thoughts and words Flowing out the tongue, where Silence never lays, In restless slumber.

HOMEBOUND

Far away on open sea, Praying with all my hope, Wising I was already there, Lonely staring at haze gray bulkheads, We chug knot by knot, Towards homeland shores, Far away land,

FRENZIE

Dogged down hatches, Alarms blaring overhead, Speakers blaring, Men & woman shouting, Ship heaving against wave, Rolling in heavy seas, First blast hits topside, Sending seaman and officer to, the Davy Jones Locker, Bullets flying in air, Sweat and grease mixed with blood and sea, Glaring through smoke filled air, “4 O’clock, 80 degree turn”…

ENTWINED

Entwined in eternal flame, Our soul dos’t wed, Thee O’ Great Spirit, Entwined in eteranal flame, We passionately entwine, My soul and Thine Great Eteranal Being, Your love Entwines me, As my praise lifts Thee upward, Great passionite throws of eteranal agony, For entwined are we, As Your blood poured out for me, What great…

STAR LOVE

Dull clouds move across the sky, Blocking galactic light, Lightening flashes across blue black sky, Filling the night with echo’s of fright, Twisting and turning the winds come burning, Through the raging tempest that’s squalling, Rain bursting through air,…

CARDINAL

Red feather flapping ahead, Prideful crown arched in blood red glory, Tweeting from his deep red belly, Protecting his territory and mate’s bed, Beautiful cardinal, fly high, my Grandma’s favorite bird.

BIPOLAR HELL (A glimpse into uncontrolled symptoms)

(This poem is about how my bi-polar symptoms affected me before my doctors and I found the proper treatment for myself.) Tearing my heart out my chest, I look down into my hand, Beating heart, throbbing in time with my rage, Taking it out on myself, Raging in my thoughts, Destroying self, to be numb,…

UNGODLY SWAMP

Look at us, Drenched, wet to the bone, Hair hanging, witches dew, Smelling like the old hags brew, No bus, taxi, To take us out of this ungodly swamp, Lost to the world, Deep down country roads, Asphalt and lights far behind, Now deep in no mans land, Don’t let the hag catch us, Her…

Bonfire

Fire, live, passionate flames lit in ecstasy / Crackling sparks flinging themselves into orbit / Dancing, full of life, light orbs / Filling night air with fire light / Marshmallows and feet, warming / Filling bellies, and cracked ale, at lively parties / Music rocking night sky, as orbs dance and swirl by / Hands…
