Night Rider

Turn an eye to the
lonely sky
with billowing clouds
pregnant with rain
hiding a waning moon
winds are screaming to the night
ti's an omen
so they say

Heed where ye travel
beware what ye do
above all whisper
the words ye shall say

For he rides
in the dark
searching for men to slay
would it be the ones gone wrong
with debauchery and lie
of the evil
that men do

Keep a razor sharp eye
take care lest you stray
into a cold and darkened night
he is waiting to take your soul
and there is no giving back

Sydney Xmas Limerick

At Christmas in Sydney it's hot
(wintry and snowy it's not)
So on the nude beach
Remember to reach
And smother some cream on your bot.

TALE OF LEAVES

Yet another year
dimples the surface of our lives
to float slowly down
and add to the detritus
of time.

COME INTO MY GHOSTLY GHASTLY DREAMS

and I daily dream every day
guys who went to their graves
almost 100 years ago
now come daily searching for me

o poet come quickly
here we are poets of class missing
neo has plenty

Heard 5 or six left neo early
where did they vanish
who can tell me

I asked are you a ghost
he quickly vanished

So depend not on dreams
just relish ice cream

then forget all such
minus passionate dreams

Dreamer friends
where have you lately been

when the trees will disappear

wide awake in front of open windows
agitating for a breath,
we will run barefoot up until the forest to watch
to our surprise
that the trees aren’t disappeared

but that they have conspired
not to give ever again breath to humans,
especially to the ones who never understood
where life ends and where death begins,
to the ones who have been losing the tree for the forest.

for now, we are losing them both.

Abundance

Giraffe.
Tower walking.
Exquisite designs intertwine.
Finds tenderness behind the thorns.
Grace.

Neopoet (Acrostic Contest SEP 2021)

Neopoet is the only critically critique site of poetry
Everyone is an expert like a doc after the postmortem
Only few now indulge deeply into other's marvelous works
Poets like Lovedly watch silently simply no intrusion
Only few have masterly powers here very few do hear
Entire lot of initial poets all know have forever gone
To other unknown destinations Paul and I just hold on

Amending the Edges

I don't know when the change came for me
It's not like a date you can mark on the calendar
With little still to prove to anyone,
the edges are worn now, smoother

The change, I think, came from living
and learning from all the mistakes and battles,
as well as a few skirmishes of the soul
I cherish all the ribbons awarded me,
secretly displayed on my heart

As my eyes dim

Tendrils of being
filigree off my frame,
a blossoming hope
now reigned in, tamed.

Powerful yearnings
deep in my gut,
I've had to let go
his door is shut

I remember his birth
him smiling a frown,
sweet smells powder
and snow to rain down

Riding his bike
for the first time,
arms outstretched
I'm in the sublime

Glittering laughter
he brought into my life,
tear filled giggles
and hitting the heighths

I Once Composed A Poem Come Closer TO ME

''Come Closer to Me.''
An old friend of ours
in the neighborhood played the violin
whole night for unlimited hours

After two kids
his only love now
was his violin
something that only
a true musician would know
The whole world heard
it in these moments
his fingers would brace her face
as his violin
her hair- the strings
his eyes would look no where
with his lips
he kissed the violin as hers

hairs stood up
of those who his violin did purse

Surrender to Infinity

Good morning sweet fate,
I never thought we'd really meet.
My bill is due, it cannot wait.
Let Karma have its choice box seat.

I want to fight a final stand and
Have my defects come out swinging.
Torch it all to the ground;
My disease the lone one grinning.

If only did I know that
I could win if I just quit.

If only I could trust that
I could finally have a rest.

If only I could see that
I could step into the place

Where calamity
Meets serenity.

Boys Charm Not Sex

On the beach within easy reach
all were enjoying a lovely son
even he was having fun ~~boy's dilemma

this is abs imagery
a guy was simply surrounded by younger gals
wanting to buy lips sticks

perhaps negligees
this just struck my mind
what a lucky sweet guy

maybe just 17 plus
beautifuller than all gals
enjoying aroma at their expense
