These walls

these walls defend the seed that grows as root and stem extend their throws no angry mob, no crippling gale can cause the seedling spread to fail these walls allow the plant to think to find it's own internal sync to see the sky and see the ground and weave the two in lace profound these walls rebound the tempting call of those who'd see the progress stall as flowers bloom and scent...

Amalfi Sunset

Beyond the shore, the sun descends and paints the sky in fuchsia blends with passion fruit and tangerine and clouds a-blush with peachy sheen magenta ribbons flirt with blue as day departs in royal adieu a spectral thrall, a final boast to brush the warm Amalfi Coast the spritely sea consumes the light as waters burn for coming night and sand glows rose in lovers’ heat there on the beach,...

Amber and Gold

A haze of amber flecked with gold the nightly spell of Rome takes hold its citrine light gleams from our hair and our footsteps float as if on air The ancient mischief of ancient lanes dilates our eyes, infects our brains the domes and columns coalesce to wink us, nudge us, urge us, 'yes' With impish looks, our hands entwine our faces flushed with golden wine coy laughter rolls in...

One Night on the South Bank

A thousand jewels in soft array brush moonlit waters in sweet ballet vibrant lights from red to gold enchant the river of London old Through the night, St Paul's commands a ship of white, atop the lands casting awe from bridge to hall splashing life in silver thrall Blackfriars Bridge in calm repose Oxo Tower glows like a rose twisting lamps climb from the stands Thames Clippers sail in...

Translucent Excuses

We huddle silently Draped in a quilt of innocent friendship The warmth of our arms mingling As we sit side-by-side in the dark room Our faces flicker with multi-colored splashes Dolled out by my bulky old TV Showing our private 'movie-night' movie Bathing us in translucent excuses She's glowing tonight Even more so than usual Her clothes are a little tighter Her make-up more carefully...

Dark Liquid Silk

The oar blades dip into the dappled glass-like water Beneath the sighs of weeping willows, the boat glides forward Sending gentle ripples fanning across the river, shoreward To slosh softly against the bank Across the boat, she looks back at me Her blonde hair dances with mottled golden rays And on her face, glows a smile that says, there's more than the sun's warmth between us I lean back...

Purple Darkness

Unabashed blood rainbow hues Tossed in a sea of whittled news A whiplash current, a greedy bear Eats its fill within its lair. Stomping fields of calves and thighs Prance around with filtered eyes One princess calls monks to her fold Blue eyes flash, 'Do as you're told.' Humping, whooping, the highest heels Before her, a sallow beggar kneels She bellows out false truths of starkness...

In Ocean Air

The gull sails aloft white-crested ocean as smooth as silk, in perfect motion eyes scan the surf for silver glimmers to harvest crops of scaly dinners A glint, a meal, a hunger real an upward swoop with deft and zeal one turn, a hover, then a plunge sharp golden beak in deathly lunge Quick splash, a grab, wings pumping rough spraying surf, jaw clenching tough sprat writhing in a fatal...

If I Had One Wish, I'd Be A Fish

If I had one wish I'd be a fish I'd swim the sea and make a splish If I had one other I'd make a brother We'd splish around With one another If a third would come I'd make a mum To make us smile When we were glum If a fourth were had I'd make a dad To keep us safe From all that's bad Then out we'd set, and swim all four Skimming above the ocean floor From coast to kelp to shell to shore...

Like a rising ball of magma

Few can see it coming But oh yes it will come Like a rising ball of magma As hot as the burning sun Through the rock it is pushing Building, rising every day Maybe you cannot see it Maybe you hope it will go away But oh yes it is coming See the fissures in the land Boiling clefts of dissent Talk of which is banned Whispers, quiet whispers Hush now, the powers come “Stop the wicked...
