ethereal tree

ethereal tree in the forrest cathedral
shimmer winsome bird wing
crisp Autumn air bring slim stem
blue azure grass capture frost
the cost of losing you
lost in the shadows
rain like tears dripping droplets on branches
strip the evening mottled leaf
that fill the ground with grief
creature stir black fur buries to ashes
shadow of a darker moon cry to sea
waves crash bluer
i never meant to hurt the wonder
it was a wonderful summer
salt in the wound plunder put the mood asunder
fire brimstone thunder
upset depth deep dark sorrow
forgive an ancient debt
that may free us from regret tomorrow.

Enders of the east

hibiscus sweet sugary dark bark
no worry tender twig upon the heart
dug deep into mineral floor the flora
decades steep in soil root mute curl coil
in a land as loyal enders of the east
receive the royal Golden Pear and Goldberg bagel feast
all the spoils are anointed
by the romantic Atlantic
castaway long summer sway trees warm wind skim shore
pack trunk dump junk
leave the bible in the drawer
fold clothes from the dryer
hot as if they were on fire
by the Sound and telephone wire
we are all famous in the Hamptons
liable to listen to Lionel train his quartet
in a most blue moody moon-set
dance to the stereo
strangers well meant amusement
soon the snow and ice will trickle the pipes sacrifice
summer ’18 fill a memory
augment autumn upon us author autonomy
search the birch for parchment
as we did in Larchmont
leave every leaf in place
beguiled thoughts to file
rile denial look my way your smile christen day
wild child please don’t turn away
fate is late thank God for time
that has us pray for yours and mine.

for you

for you
sage fume
cloudy mist tint blue
green stem stalk past
the pasture where we laughed
smiling sun upon purple plum
the blossom of her care
she sympathize the eyes of cries
regarding butterflies
delicate creatures perfect features
pond meadow rainbow 🌈 rose the row of colored crows in Autumn leaves that glow
then to leaf through books
that bind the mind back through time line for line
winter cometh the spruce and pine embark the heart ♥️ of rhyme.

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.

calm cool breezes

autumn calm cool breezes blow
leaves turn shades red to gold
mesmerise a sunrise glow
a forest stream the even flow

virgin serpents bluest sea
your eyes looking deep
in my heart as ever was so sweet
dream met time for sleep

kind regard the harvest moon
yellow golden fires flame
revel light ignite reflection pure
beach grass stir in weather warm
soon the ocean wake

promise you care
love that will not pain
i’ll tell you when the war is at an end
welcome autumn sun
the falling rain
in a season fall again.
