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”

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.

How can this auspicious wake Of a new month on a Tuesday, Go unheralded without pancakes Embracing fortune’s amulet gastronomy.
Summer’s messenger blows kisses; a floral reprise As autumn’s mediator beckons September sunrise, Exhorting the wind’s guttural whistles in the trees To fling in nature’s spinning loom, its cares; leaves Weaving hope foot paths in red, brown and amber As Summer fluffs her exquisite abode for slumber.

Onlookers avoid her gaze and she theirs. Passersby kept their distance; she hers. Sadness cloaked sound from the ether, But, herContinue reading “The Long Blue Blanket – A poem”
Give me not, wee squares of Gruyere delicacies Punctuating party charcuterie boards, plucked Upon with tooth picks bow-tied with lace doilies. But, hefty handfuls of creamy cured cheesy curds, High on the list of things, of which one never tires. Mac and cheese, those twins of the culinary empire Their Romulus-like elbows hold truckles of cheese:Continue reading “Cheesy – A Poem”
Blue Jays and thrashers, first to dawn’s feast, As early morning skies pretend to be night. While a large fluffy brown hare motionless By a brick wall, attempts *Batesian mimicry, With the wall’s mirage of painted green grass. Then, to invisibility’s lantern the hare scurries To hide in plain sight, in the vestiges of night;Continue reading “Camouflage – A Poem”
Drip, from above, O heavens, thy distilled refrain – The sound of the abundance of rain: An inner satiety that fills without food, Birthed from a ray of hope; a single word, A tattoo reminder on adversity’s parchment, A single word traversing ordeal’s escarpment, That, be the sound of the abundance of rain: Where seasonsContinue reading “Abundance of rain – A Poem”
My dear darling auto correct; Thy selfless typing materialize Words of puzzlement and tease.
