Mountains glisten

through a snow ridge dream.

Snow melting from the noon sun,

a day moon

peaking through clouds

of nuptials with nature.

A lonely heart;

a mountain stream

carrying a "49ers" pick.

Golden memories flowing between your

wonderfully shaped fingers.


rings of hope

and words

that traveled through my sifting trough.

I Saw My Beacon

I’m a prisoner in my own hourglass.

Feeling each grain of sand pass by endlessly

turning upside down

and downside up.

Time drained energy

helplessly the villain;

A cartoon defying time…


time challenging each grain of sand.

A passionate whisper,

a dance at dusk;

A kiss before the world and

you unlocked the key to my heart.

Did you hear me?

I love you.

Dusty Dreams

The vivid dreams

that were once my


now lay stark

in the

threshold of time;

Collecting dust at foot

of attics door.

What You Are To Me

Vast inspiration, sometimes consternation.
Beautiful – words, indescribable.
A flawless diamond
glistening on a clear summer day.
Velvet warmth
in your soft but definitive voice,
a chorus of singing angels.
Strength and weakness, 
challenge that comforts and torments.
Love, intensity -
distance driven angst.
Bright sun drenching a valley stream
moving slowly, confidently.
The fragrant smell of fresh perfume accenting every part of you,
as fresh as sweet mountain air.
A snow storm in a small summer retreat town,
A child playing endlessly – profound.
A pleasant dream – daybreak chirping birds.
Delicate as a feather floating in the breeze.
Inspiration, da Vinci like yet real.
Happiness – solitude in thought, auditorium emotion.
What you are to me is
a field of wild flowers, swaying in the breeze
that makes my day.

Searching for words


are lost in my own Pompeii.

Tarnished achieves of love

smoldering beneath the inflamed air.

Steam rising from a hidden lake

reflections of you

floating  in cloudy sky.
