I cannot forget the past
with love and heartache
happiness and excitement.
Life moved on
and before I become undone
I have to escape
from the past – at last
Look at me today
save me from what I dream about.
Look at me today
judge me.. have I recovered?
Save me forever
burying the past to live forward

in my bed
in warm December,
draw a blanket
of friends around me.
Let them touch what is to be found in me,
discovering me today.
I want to remember,
and I love
because you are alive in my mind,
friendships in the Port
and when I must leave,
you will not be left behind.

of dust transcended by
winds traversing through poignant canyons
as tidbits have been telegraphed to a wayward star.
Forgotten is your flowing hair
like the distant sunset to the West.
Faint laughter, arguments
cloaked in naive
Years asleep, I revisited our familiar meeting place.
Bright light was slowly overcome by
I heard again,
the echoes from the belltower.

Shooting stars burning across the sky
writing a trail of love letters
against the black, but twinkling night.
Night animals sing praises
to your lovely words.
An owl hoots applause
to the depth of your thoughts.
The moon caresses the suns' reflections.
You renew the words
and say hello again
the night air breathes a warm
with the feelings you have conveyed.
renew our strong bond
as the beauty of nature surrounds us.
Another star writes wonderful words of love,
as we blow kisses to the warm wind.
Smell the freshness of life.
Early darkness wakings
during a spring day sleep.

A drop of rain
rolling over my fingers
refreshing, yet so beautiful.
a bead so unabated
as I think of you
walking through the pathways of my heart.
a clarion of sound
from a towering building
overlooking a gigantic cataclysm
enthroned by your walked pathways.
From “In the Mist of A Dream” published in 1970

You strolled with me on the beach
hearing the waves crashing on shore
contemplated what could be.
We saw the seagulls diving for lunch
as we discussed life over brunch.
And after all, it was only us
contemplated what could be.
We strolled along a captain’s walk
having an in-depth talk
about what could be.
Just you and me
what could be.
Can you See?
See the leaves fall from the darkening trees
a sign change is coming.
and a soft message from the deep inside
coming from the invisible postman.
and catch the leaves as they fall.
Help the fledgling bird through a tough day;
it’s mother abandon
and a home lost to the wind.
and catch the leaves as they blow
Into the frightening night.

Do you feel mortal?
Don’t let your mind betray you…
Touch inspirations higher,
a clear sky thought
that brings you reality.
Time will catch up with you
with your fears,
dreams, and nightmares.
Close your eyes and see the eclipse
Clear the sky, move the clouds,
breathe the air around you
the fears, tears,
grow as time guides you
Intrinsically to the edge of life’s universe.

A rising sun over clouded thoughts,
warming the thoughts for the day.
A final journey, alone and bewildered
bathed in a great rainbow bouncing off sand and rock.
My fears now have subsided
you are home with me once again.
Your own journey has been hand held;
dusk settles over the land you walked
your tears dried from the heat of day and turn to moisture
of the night.
A rising sun over a bright blue sky again.
Echoes and light spears engulf the land you trek
And full your mind with wonderful thoughts.
You are me,
and I am with you forever, not alone
and we walk together in our final journey
holding hands, smiling at the sunbeams.
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.

I was visited by an angel,
and kissed me on my forehead
her kiss stopped a freefall into a deep sleep.
She held my hand
and brought me back to life.
She saw great inspiration in my life
and wiped away all of my tears,
and my sleep.
An angel kissed me on my forehead
and the sun shone bright
and opened a pathway to my life.
Thanks dear angel
may you visit again later in life.

written on ancient parchment;
in my inner thoughts.
I let your letter
among the icebergs
in a water
Every word you say today
an echo of tomorrow.

Can you hear my
swirling like a hurricane of high school
feelings – butterflies everywhere.
Each day I don’t talk to you
seems like eternal emptiness.
Emotions stretched like a rubber band;
my heart fluttering as fast
as hummingbird wings,
but as fragile as crystal.
My life is caught in a jet stream of emotions
yet it is good to share.
You have taken over my heart
my gift from each day is knowing you are there.
I cried in my pillow to bury my feelings
because you have captivated every part of
staged on a whisper and choreographed
over time that
progressed to the grand stage.
As you danced across the brightest of full-moons
I’ve tried to concentrate
only could smell your faint perfume.
I tried to concentrate
only could feel your soft skin
close to mine.
How long have you hidden your love?
And how long have you deprived your
life of passion.
Whatever life span we have
I want to share my love with you and do not want it to slip away.

lightning bolts from Thor,
blinding, scorching power.
little feet and welled up eyes,
a mixed and broken sentence;
a light rain shower.
sunshine, a sideways sneaker,
a powerful call....
Daddy, I love you.

I saw your ghostly image pass in the night.
What you are today is a real fright.
In your nighttime hours think hard about life
but don’t pass by me with your blight.
You were so strong and handsome to see
now you are just a shadow of what
you could be.
Remember that love gives strength,
that’s from us to you.
Never give up hope
because you will
always be a Shadow of you
drifting in the night.

where have you sailed.
From island to island,
from reef and sandy trail.
Sun shining brightly before you on your rickety
Waves, rogue and small
slow your chartered confident trip.
Sundown, peaceful, bright orange,
clouds, horizons vast, daylight doused.
Sleep oh mariner, tomorrow brings
Dreams, roll on every wave
at anchor, at sail
you see fishermen graves.
Morning mist haunts your heavy lidded
looks hastily into the heavenly blue sky.
Your sail cuts swiftly though the steady
Castaway, confident castaway,
your safe harbor looms closer
to timid tender trees.

You've grown from small seedlings
through Spring to Spring.
Strong, healthy, vibrant and
A smile so charming, it can melt arctic glaciers.
thoughts and imagination fleet
like leaves following the grass lines.
Your life warms my heart,
your love has captivated my every breath,
are part of me, as I am of you.
Butterflies stumble from branch to branch
and life, as a hard oak
gain, strength, and focus.

the last dream
that filled my bed.
filling with gaiety,
handled with creatively,
wide eyed of Natures
vast array of spender,
our downpour has ended in a rainbow
