COOKING CURRY

start with joy
that's the secret
tailor everything
to continue
that expression
say the juvenile
ebullient eyes
of ancient master
here again
to teach us forever
how to add flavor

Soul Angel

I've known
a while
she chats with
seraphs
in celestial
bodies of light
and vibration.

no more time
for my lower
frequency
and dreams.

still, she waits
for my
arrival.

Sappho

O never was there such a time,
When poetry would plumb & mine
The days of Sappho speak.
A woman never meek,
When sandals’ passion creaked
To cadence, meter Greek.



_______________________

Sappho was an Ancient Greek lyric poet. She was required reading for Greek citizens, and her influence on Greek literature & thought is immeasurable.

Orison of Night

She paces
to and fro—
beset with ornate jewel
...casting gold;
a piece to illuminate
the grand expanse.
 
For nightfall is the place  
where secrets go
to hide their eyes.

the eyes do not see the past

have your eyes
not shown me my heart    
since before God smiled?  
   
since before time itself  
had laid its path?    

los ojos no ven el pasado,      
pero van a revelarlo

Such a Dumb Show


I will spend my thirty word mission
To make sense of the “human condition”
That is silly, I know—
We are such a dumb show
Likely end by uranium fission!

Camping

Deep woops  
from within  
the eucalypts  

dread.
 
I thought  
they were  
myth  
 
Crashing  
heavy  
through  
the bush  
towards me  
 
BANG!  
 
Faaarrrrk!!!  
 
 
Oh, sorry mate…..  
I thought  
you were  
a yowie
