Kitty Cat – A Poem

Feline patrols the alley way, At first, some thought a stray, A fluorescent collar in crimson glory. Street-wise to neighborhood jungle traffic, Crossing at night in stealth at the crosswalk, As cars stop for her fashion runway catwalk. Her midnight charcoal coat flatters, Her luminescent pink collar choker. Her bright accessory a token of loveContinue reading “Kitty Cat – A Poem”

Preserves – A Poem

Spirited pectin Gels the action: Pickle preserves, Oeur d’oeuvres, Chows and Confit Spreads and jelly. Pitted fruit meet The stone remover. Pickling spice, Sultry allspice. Drooling lids, Funnel bibs, Pattern paper, Park apples In ornate jars Like antique cars Wave checkered flags. Guarded temperatures Enshrine winter cellars In sweet homemade jars. ___________ – Inspired byContinue reading “Preserves – A Poem”

Fall’s Scepter – A Poem

Autumn; Winter waits every year to see her, His persona attracted to her warmed temper. But she arrives before him, often not by much, And, exits on winged Demeter’s pumpkin patch. His chivalric quest, epic as that of Sir Gawayne, He plies her with gifts near the Etruscan plain, They vanish like ice cubes inContinue reading “Fall’s Scepter – A Poem”

An Open letter – A Poem

In this an open letter To the invisible darkness In the realms of spiritual wickedness In the kingdom circling the cosmological Offspring of the heavenly Creator Circling like a lion to see whom to invite as dinner. Let it be known today… That we know – by all that has been written In the sacredContinue reading “An Open letter – A Poem”

September Longings – A Poem

September longings jump thought courses, Like equestrian trails to Andalusian horses. Enticed by cool air, dreams unsheathe plows, To seed sacrifices sown with sweated brows. Autumn grazes in expectant hills of harvest, Their first fruits, worldly sanctuaries at best. But, like the true hover of the kingfisher; Only one sanctuary lasts forever.

Boatswain’s Oar – A Poem

Seasonal helms of thanksgiving; a boatswain’s oar, Steady decks of cruise-ships tossed in life’s candor. Unspoken kindness; compassion’s dwindling paddle Reaps a surging ocean ride on discomfort’s saddle. Blanket might-have-beens; driftwood to the soul, Wring moisture from the leaves in comfort’s bowl. Philosopher’s stones rubbing the sands of the wise, Return diamonds as grace claspsContinue reading “Boatswain’s Oar – A Poem”

En-gedi – A Poem

Its floor, our universe home Acacias of camphor its beams Its rooftops, the cosmic stars Nailed on interstellar rafters. Our footprints safely hidden In the vineyards of En-gedi, Watered by eternal lush wadis. Earth – heaven’s Sensurround, Our world our cosmic retreat: Called to everyone, Before time began, Before we were one, Nature replied forContinue reading “En-gedi – A Poem”

Mustard Yellow – A Poem

Painted facades in racing stripes once a summer rouge, Now travelers and landscape sport a mustard yellow hue. Street lines etch golden filigree in the diamond asphalt. Dividing traffic’s to and fro with its citrine watermark. Triathlon charioteers sporting yellow swoosh joggers Jockey uphill, corn-yellow bikes in herculean fervor. Spectator trees hold aloft their wingedContinue reading “Mustard Yellow – A Poem”

Hovering leaflets – A Poem

Autumn, the earth’s introspection Honoring the terrestrial womb of inception Summer skyward points light unsheathe; Fall plummets, covering what lies beneath Precious few notes capture fall’s sheaves Like the sound of treading on dried leaves Dispensed by Summer’s exit strategy, as she Tosses leaf invitations like betrothal confetti. The hovering leaflets – earring danglers, NimbleContinue reading “Hovering leaflets – A Poem”

Cream puffs – A Poem

Ruminating dulcet dreams of cream puffs, choux Pillow dainties of pastry prophets top the menu. Swirling concoctions ebbing at their soft center, Like summer waves caress sand on the seashore. Into their hallowed labyrinth center patissiers Pipe, angelic fillings dreamy unbridled mysteries Topping their just desserts in liberty’s ganache, Dissolving sticky situations with edible panache.Continue reading “Cream puffs – A Poem”
