Catherine

Tears trickle down her canyon cheeks from waning eyes; Eyes knowing; yet, blind to why; Wind fashioned eyes, brown as hair; Grey'd by grief. No solace found in well drawn salty brine, For, Kate and endless sorrow are old friends. Life's end dims her; the raging flees; Oaks give up their leaves as... Sign in to see full entry.

Winter Reigns

Winter's snows melt, Pouring down the rim. The birthings come, Sweeping roots and cones. They go! They come and go, Then, the magnet draws them up. They go and come; They bead in heavy brines In salty tears of hope; They flee the sacred realms of siloed dreams And fall upon their grateful heir. They... Sign in to see full entry.

It Cannot Happen Again

It cannot happen again, The pain of falling in love, But I am swept by the moments, As I stand on the road Awaiting the minute when he comes, And counting the cars for hours. Remembering the pains of the past. Set perimeters about my feelings, Because you know the routine, You swoon, you're anxious... Sign in to see full entry.

One Divided into All

One divided into all! Who are you? What are you? Cast into the cannon's shell And splattered over many hearts And kept in chamber's secret held What are you? Who are you? Gentle fawns at pools of moon Blowing cedar's berried vine, Dolphin's fast in helion jump You are motivate for all, And yet, I... Sign in to see full entry.

Dora Clare

Morning by the window Keeps it shine a-filterin' Up the lattice garden By my cellar door. But, the old creation Finds me still a lingerin' By the metal trelace In this Summer Song. Gentle breezes kiss me In my mourning carol; But my morn is giving To the merry mode. Laughin' o'er the cabbage... Sign in to see full entry.

Before the Porta Regina

Before the Porta Regina, I stand and muse And let my mind rove away To the clay of my old birth Distant in the silent Earth. Here, at the Port' I know full recourse, The homesick soldier's feeble sway Feelings found without a change Since left behind in yesterday. On these walls were Roman men, Who,...

Along the Wall

Along the Wall, The wall of straight, The wall of never ending length We stand in steady motion Never varied from the line, Keeping silence vital Doing work of twenty men, Then, when the tasks are over, Begin them once again. But, when the change prevailing Taps the portal's dawn; We must prepare to... Sign in to see full entry.

Measured People We

Measured people we Already destined to the dunes Measured on the tape Before we breathe our first. Given dates for dunes to take, Upon our commenced sigh. Born to die. Barks upon life's open sea Bearing each our destiny, Same destiny. Reaching foreign shores, Known alone to Osiris, Secret god, whose... Sign in to see full entry.

Song of the Right Whale

Why do you slay me, Come tell me true? What have I ever done to you? If I've been heartless Or if I've been crass I'd see why you're craven upon your windlass. Cutters and knivers Leave scant few survivors To cleave the blue waters in absolute free; But, nervous, impatience You kill'd my sweet... Sign in to see full entry.

Brush Touches Vermilion

Brush touches vermilion On silk stroked red distanced dawn, On golden grain, Grey wash backs ink capped peaks, Quill rained greenery as water Falls in skiff, there little men within And gossamer sails as Little specks before great towers kept As if in violet well. Oaks wind shimmer phantoms Of a... Sign in to see full entry.
