In the middle of the day; a mattress appears on the highway. Stunned drivers slow down to peer at the upholstered delay, The local radio station alerts travelers that lane to stay away, Traffic comes to a crawl briefly until the item is cleared away. The following day, the radio station airs its regular call-inContinue reading “The Mattress – A Poem”
Colors that startle Colors that dazzle Colors to accessorize Colors that harmonize. Beyond ultraviolet most cannot see Of what then is the color of visibility; Of what hue the mind’s invisibility Of what transparency insight Of what spectrum thought.
The four winds tickling the sky at the equatorial tropics Whisk wind socks like swizzle sticks stirring polar artics, Wrapsickling the northern sphere in autumn semantics. Sensing in their DNA the call of the bones of their ancestry, Migratory birds glide in the updrafts of inherited history, Leaving the unbound Phoenix of their future; their chicksContinue reading “Migration – A Poem”
Singing morning songs of deciduous tree ether, Maple leaves in crimson saris sprinkle fall sugar, Their rosy scarves twirl like red fidget spinners Furling to terra firma in tender magenta flutters; Waving crimson flags of affection into the solar.
“Ooze my sap and roll morsels in cinnamon sugar Rather than tilt my handle in mangrove timber. Drip my thoughts one by one in tapped amber, Making famous fudge in savory milk and butter, And, remember to drool my magnificence over Pancake batter -“ Said, the bucket to the sugar maple tree it admires.
Ten curtains of inter-twined linen knit Flax into fabric veils of purple and white. Washed in the cold cycles of discomfort, Dried unto loving kindness’ relaxing fit, Flax’s spear-like shape, longevity’s needle, Embroidering its blooms that last a day; Onto eternity’s robes as timeless sachets.

Large flashing lights glow like incandescent sunrise, Flooding windows and patios in disco ball surprise. A chorus of patio doors unsheathe in musical ensemble As onlookers creep from sleep to witness the spectacle. An entire pre-fab houseContinue reading “Home Delivery – A Poem”
Some journeys lead us to our selves: Packing Samsonite in nostalgia, Stamping passport memorabilia, Staycation’s globetrotting avatar Plans trips, in invisible ink, where: The Matterhorn chairlifts Whistler, Hilting Excalibur in Snowdonia, Seating sofa safaris to Luangwa Stirring spicy crawfish jambalaya, Mining sapphire in big sky Montana Fly-fishing souvenirs to Vancouver.

Stones to the Sea (part 1) – Link here Seahorses of Troy hide in ocean foam cover, Painting white the lighthouse of Alexandria, Erecting it as beacon lingua of Babel’s tower. Nag Hammadi papyrus shovels uncover the Ark, Molding rainbow colored sandcastles to Ararat.

Summer’s essence leaves its notes to Fall’s subtle perfume, Steaming pots of spikenard scent the autumn new moon. Swirling, cooled northerly winds; nature’s street sweeper Loofah the tundra with vigor, scraping summer’s aroma; Exchanging it for horned baskets in scented stomata, For pumpkin spiced lattes, hot apple cider or, a cuppa. And, roaming the sidewalksContinue reading “Essence – A Poem”
