Glint Of The Broken

In our severing
I toast with a shattered glass.
Always the laughter.

Advice From My First Marriage

Courtship, without marriage...
How romantic, indeed.

Marriage, without courtship...
You're going to bleed...

The clock is ticking
On a bomb that's armed.

A Card From Life

Mantles of incorrigible
Tin-rain wrap me...
The present of sleep,
Ribboned in dreams,
Bows peek-a-booing
A card...

Once more. Tomorrow.
Carousels, cotton candy
Freedom of sleep
Tonight.

Love,
Life.

Poetic Progress

Poetry that is controversial
Is seldom very convivial
To everyone...

For each the separate
Critique...
For that poet daring the
Oblique...

The 'old school' becomes
The 'new school'...
If not, it stays
The 'dead school.'

Take The Measurement Of Me, God

And not be too far off
In my weight for wings...
Or hooves.

Be not too far off in my
Laughter...for laughter is
Heavy.

Take my weight in things
I did...not things I had
No right in doing...

And I will take your weight
In not taking
Mine....

Metaphysical, Or Existentialist, Poem?

Flame...for candles' light,
Negating dark.
Do we not trust light?
Flame?

Vagaries in binding, beyond hope,
Altruism to reality.
Do we not trust reality?
Hope?

Buds open. Yesterday yields
Tomorrows' petals.
Do we not trust yesterday?
Flowers?

Do we trust...
Trust?

Sun Light, Sun Bright

Sun Light, Sun Bright
Wishes...O Wish!
Fog speaks quiet
Parting, dew clinging

Cold,

One second on warm hand.
One mystery moment
Drop, in Time. Gaze.
Gift of air, water, early

Morn...then...gone.
Back to air. Time again
To walk dawnlight...and
Wait...for

Sun Light. Sun Bright.

Where Is My Home?

Didn't I tell you there wouldn't
Be any way
For me to go home
This Christmas Day...

Home was in crystal, windows
Celesty...colors all bright...
Chandeliers glittering,
I have to take a breath...

Memories in color...
Tears in faded grey...
I want my home...
The colors?

My home...what cost....

The Story Of Mermaids

Night plays winds winding, shimmying
Like thoughts

Thinking too much. This roar, rush,
Trees bent

Crying down.
Mermaids' twilight- misted warning:

Water Passage! Seaweed grasps
Senuous scales

To sea, winding, shimmering
Under Nights

Warning glow: enough fantasy...
Images seductive.

Once, you were chosen for Land.
No more.

Fishing On The Bayou

Everyday the fishing pole called, hook smiled.
Everyday the bayous melted my eyes anew...

With watercolors vapid, vagrant, hyacinth-call.
And the bass waited, finning defiantly, smiling.

Sitting on that wharf, wanting that night's feast,
Realizing the feast was already before me...

What beauty to relish with seasoning of years.
What years to relish, already seasoned...
