    I typed this all in draft. You know, all radical-like.
    Not in my journal. Cell charge low. So Maverick. Free.
    What does this mean? I don't know. An urge ached it out.

    Angst

    Held my angst in a paper cup.
    All of these years;
    it's been rather tough.

    Filled up to the rim; flowing over, again & again.
    I see my life within transparencies.
    Crushed so long of disparities.

    I let it burn, a candle lit in the dark.
    Passion I'd lost;
    if not for my poetic spark.

    Immolation of a wick-d’ness I'd consumed.
    Days turned into years of charring embers.
    Lived by their ways more than I wish to remember.

    If I now express such determination through this loss.
    Impassioned to write beyond the pain,
    all that heartache had embossed.

    Yearning to express these new intentions.
    As friends and lovers of life find in the literary arts.
    For nothing is better than a verse,
    as written from the heart.

    Blush

    alluring swags sway
    restless waves of petals flow
    blowing blossoms blushed
    urged of rooted potential
    potent perfume pervades much

    By My Side

    How can I close my eyes,
    knowing that you are there by my side?
    I will never tire of you or feel fatigued,
    as you uncover our loving wonders with me.

    Most of my days seemed long and hard,
    I feel you beside me now in nights alighted with brilliant stars.
    From far away you discovered us,
    I invite you to openly explore our needed wants and lusts.

    Please let me know all that you desire,
    take my hand and express this 'us' as divinely inspired.
    Unwrap and enfold me as I feel you enter in,
    moments increased tenfold from where we met and begin.

    I know and understand we both have had our own,
    from now on I want us together so amorously alone.
    Learning and sharing spontaneously and so deep,
    becoming something now we both intend to seek.

    We have looked beyond the walls of our days,
    with you I know there will always be something to say.
    Together we stir our heart's imaginations,
    my fluttering wish is to feel your palpitations.

    Somehow, sometime, somewhere in time,
    we will fasten together our rhythms and rhymes.
    I ask you now; this particular question,
    "Will you be mine? Will you, my dear?"

    You are mine; yes you!
    My dearest blessing. Deeply within.

    'What is a Wind?'

    What is a Wind?


    Without a sailing ship,
    — of billowed canvased sails
    mastheads erect, and timbered stiff.

    Without a spinning windmill,
    — of towered lofts
    gears turning a millstone ’round.

    Without a flying kite,
    — of paper and strings
    colored patterns soared to ethereal heights.

    What is a wind?

    It is a naked dream.
    Blown to Earth.
    Felt — yet never seen.

    As so, it seems.

    Today is the 4th of July

    Celebrate, grill various meats, buy stuff on holiday sales,
    watch a parade, make noise. See some fireworks.

    Remember. Every day, each moment of life.
    This bird lives, in every moment.
    Not haughty
    of its significance.
    Living by its own
    natural,
    intuitive,
    essential,
    common
    sense
    instincts.
    Learned of
    experience.
    Surviving.
    Not exploiting.
    Proudly
    persistent.
    Despite indifference.

    Apart

    humming of our Hearts
    synchronicity of Souls
    definitely Deep
    words connect a poet's Earth
    horizons joined miles Apart

    if

    i might
    touch what
    i feel
    when ever
    i do
    want to
    i consider
    how much
    i thought
    mattered if
    i cared
    to be.
    i don't.

    Not

    Purposeful. Not perfect.
    Selective. Not judging.
    Defining. Not confining.
    Meaning. Not rhyming.
    Rhyming. Not purposely.
    Happens. Not poetically.
    Poetic. Not ordinary.
    Not. Not now.

    Shadow Dance

    melding into us
    as our shadows meet again
    moonlight silhouettes
    dance across the riverfront
    flowing going gently swift

    No Mad Dick


    One hump or
    A double bump
    Not counting this
    Like a set of camels led
    Without another sip. Such an arid
    mess.

    Pitched a tent
    In the middle of
    The shifting dunes
    Of distant desolation
    Hidden land. Marks of a wanted
    ness.

    Keep on moving
    Each day a series of
    Tasks to do accomplishments
    This is what is done as ever was
    Any path is worn. Out of signals often of
    distress.

    Head to tail along
    A lone caravan does
    Through winds of change
    Makes the most of each newness
    Step it up. Words compress much as repressing
    sex.

    Farthest horizon
    As much as only known
    Eyes of tears filled with wants
    Unfurling to a willing shift of experience
    Grab the rein. Fall down once to rise up twice so
    blessed.
