A soul, so beautiful, Her heart, so gifted, My heart was, unknowingly, Captured. Even if it’s only a romance, Watching her smile, That’s all in my head. […]

The Sun’s light shown through the windows and doors of the all white room. The all white curtains stood sentry at the windows, motionless while at attention. She sat at the piano between two, all white columns. Her wrists, in staccato movements, struck the keys with angled elbows, while her mahogany fingers, deliciously, devoured each […]

The candle lit, the flame dances atop the wick, dancing between the winds, pushed between pursed lips.  The arcane spoken word, the sunshine, bringing life to those without it.  The twist, thirsty and peckish for more like a deep pull, but settling for just a sip. On October the fifth, I climbed into my mind […]

A beautiful, blue sky day. A few clouds smiled, Nodding as they floated away. The waves fell onto the shore. Glissing notes in harmony, Hooked on the feeling, wanting more. She looked up at me and said… Be my lazy Sunday afternoon. Cool your troubled mind, Surrender willingly. Everything’s here you’ll find, Hold me closely. […]

Glasses up and Happy Fourth, All colors pop and sparkle. The Year 2024th, so let us push forth, On the fulfillment and promise, Of what it […]

Four chairs. One plate, One fork. Two chairs. One napkin, One filled glass. One chair. A microwave meat pie. Camping out across the table, is the noisy white conversation, of too many red lettered bills and junk mail. The TV, slightly out of frame with a dark, blank screen, chattering away into the background. He […]
