burnt blue orange flame

burnt blue orange flame
great harmony troubled
chaos clatter bells
see among the mire
heart fall in winter
call contagious rage
seethe silent grief
violent heaving stir thoughts
of her leaving
feeling foolish
brood mood consume evening
slowly chaste raw moon
give peace
an incredible place believing
circumstance follow interlude
heart felt rebellion twist my confession
professional courtesy dire-
love her
throughout all eternity
the summer fill the day
burnt-out August lulled cool
autumn blew the leaves away

winter looks colder than a dare
raped the autumn trees leaves them bare
in meadow mellow angels throw and catch their halos
like frisbees in the air
breezes crispy crackle sparks
fiery discs dart back and forth
faceted quartz lite different parts
humble the tumbled ore
from deep within earths core
so are we as deep as a sea
no sight of shore
and you coming through
like you never have before
I respect your pain
I love you like the grain of salt in rain

moved to tears
the fleeting years come and go
you’re tireless wireless
exceptional professional

raincloud paint the sun upset-
I pray the angels dry the sky
gentle beauty in her eyes
she cries to be in love.

a little while longer

stay on the earth plane
a little while longer
madrigal phantom
canyon hills gather beginnings
endings fill the filament
lament the will i met

ointment rub away sorrow
without you in tomorrow
unkempt medusa
rude enthusiasm sought the seeker
some truth a pot of lies
an artists proof an angel cries

see the parting of the ways
form a more perfect union
arrays of new ones
along the palisades-
bathe in a glade down streams
self consciousness gray the greens

pity how she bleeds
without that special someone-
wife Mother Earth
the stormy affair of her life’s work
stillness walk in silence
encourage benevolence

sayer in troubled southern skies-
through skirting issues
tissues and a cane
rebel cause the second came
doubtful discriminations
alter egos enflaming flames

fire burn bright yellow
flicker whiskey sours
past partaken
mistaken identity
there is a better you in me
someone I long to see
who has a thing for spring

purple pleasantries
swipe the card of plenty
tell me when you’re ready
to the tune of a medley
swoon the moon overwhelming
the tide rushes very

deep within the sea belly
beauty of a whale
may catch her tail
her little calves running
through wind tossed waves
strewn prawn
sea turtles seaweed jellyfish

storms to coast the calm
red flags reserve to warn
floods flash reservoirs
seasick senses surface
race to rocky shores
where seagulls swear and soar.

branches bending low

overwhelmed by spells
quell a realm bring rings as worn
by trees in the center
where the heart sleeps

waiting for an answer in fall
often watching the moon
I think of you

celebrations run the year
we try to hear the underlying
undying word of love as clear
as a fantasy forgives forever

cool and crisp windy ground
whip and chill the dirt to flirt
leafy crinkled crunch snap
branches bending low
half asleep we wait for snow.

Monolithic Aberdeen

the mind a monolithic Aberdeen
in the middle of a fantasy
where all goes well between you and me
you are my spring where June may avail
bird on the wing of a dove in love spinning her tale
I will fail no doubt to lend
the end of such sweet harmony
to bend like spoons weighted down by too much sugar
stirred to awaken a sense of milk and honey
left of tomorrow’s yesterday’s
birds sip sweetest sap from the maple milked to tap
buoyant buzzard bargains for bones in the shoulders
of boulders-
camping out bugs bite bats borrow ubiquitous unity
bears outfox fish for lunch beavers bristle
civilization dine on vacation steak gristle
I am so lost not knowing the cost too much so little
incurable thirst the juice of an orange wets the whistle
where is my prayer book what have I done
with my leather bound missile?
my silence is saved it goes to the grave-our little miracle
an answer so sweet to rub your feet to gain your trust
to know that you love me as best as you can
is genuinely just
God bless you woman.
