A Time In The Deep

It's a time like no other. A time twirling around the deep of strangeness, staking out for itself uncertainties as it swoops down on a world shaken up and traumatized to the extent that it hyperventilates. Dreams and visions that ought to have smoothen the edges of its roughened up waves going up in smoke. Events verging on spiritual and psychological healing seem tethered in the backs of hopelessness as the eyes stare at the growing emptiness that travels deep into the distance.

Serving a poetic cocktail (Sedoka)

juggle mind for words
cherry pick appealing ones
and shake a tipsy cocktail

raise a toast for joy
let it roll onto your tongue
say "hey i got it all right"

Dream Girl She

A lovely dream came to you
to me dreams come to teach
most of my poems
are Dreamy poems
they came to me
now to you I reach
in your dreams
read 'em please

you yourself are a lover's dream
shhhhh, don't scream
love is like ice cream
enjoy it do not let it melt
then wish
you will to read more of my dreams
lovely girl you must be
keep dreaming of me

"- Jimi -"

Pixie dust sprung from Jimi's eyes
as he rolled in microdot dreams,
purple phased out blades of grass
waves, then heaven screamed.
We watched smart pebbles line the beach
marching to a Psychedelic Sousa band
we know must be playing somewhere,--
discarded notes were strewn in the sand.
The pea stones kept amazing time
clicking piezoelectric sound
counting out the midnight sun

Eva, Transfigured

A restless fire burnt in her blue Aryan eyes
And she wore a pretty dress
Because she loved to be beautiful,
Even though she was by then
No more than a bird in a bunkered cage.

But the man she loved did not see:
He had other priorities, affairs of state,
Still blindly fighting a lost war.
The others in the bunker wanted to live
And prayed they might escape to the world,
Such as it was in those closing weeks;
But Eva did not care, as she knew her destiny,
Finally coming out of the shadows.

A Game of Wits

Eros and Artemis
were at a game of wits

who could loose
the cleanest dart

the northernmost tower
he cast into flame
the dominion to the south
fell to famine

A Legend In His Time (July Contest )

As if in a dream
I sat and stared
listening with deep intent
I knew all the words to every song
and found myself singing along
A fan I was for too long to remember
I could hardly believe my fate
but here I sat as a birthday gift
mesmirized by every move
chords that rang out from his guitar
and beheld the legend Gordon Lightfoot

A Candle in the Night

candle in the night
very cooling to the eyes
soothing to the soul

the flame does flicker
in cool breeze blowing
like a rhythmic dance

my heart strikes the chords
to this choreography
performing alive

Balancing Poppy's- Earthly Population

You all speak on behalf of
the 7.5 billion today
2 billion
when you were born
was good enough
now you say

you can take part
with the
VIRUS
NO VILLAIN
will make the world
richer again

by taking many away
many will be re-rooted
fresher more active billions
will have a chance
to be reborn
but
not in vain

to be born
in the GARDENS OF
EDEN VICTORIA MALABOREE
and roam naked
as birds are free

Look To My Back

Look To My Back

If you look to my back
A story you would see
The hardships I endured
Moments I put my family before me
Moments my freedom was more important

If you look to my back
You will see moments less than a human I became
Moments less than a man I became
Times I hesitated because family was more important
A tree illustrated from the lashes
A design of my pain, ownership and pride
