Shall I Compare Thee, , , NO! !

Your erotica
so succinct
reaching apex
fingers clawing
voice screeching
in its brevity
like a sledge
slamming needle
through cotton candy.

Mine,
of epic proportions
overwhelming details
time for you to do your nails
as I fumble
and tumble my way
ocean liner
on your pond of needs
finally
enter

These Eyes Are Watching You

...see your words
verbal manifestation of thoughts
portraits painted with syllables
of sensuous simile and meaningful metaphor

not critic but who assimilates random thoughts
cast about like chaff in the swirling wind
no object of idolatry
no persecuting executioner
no special one from any special land
no name, no face, no special place
ubiquitous with comment or without –

just a silent voice that speaks its mind
shadow of your spirit
wisp of your very breath
exhaled for all to breathe

your vigilant sentinal

Two Perfect Roses

Center bud widens
petals spreading panoptically
sucking in Spring warmth
hot Summer’s heat
sun rays of Autumn’s
dying coolness
Winter’s frigidity

steadfastly clinging

heart of Rose
invites sweet halcyon
breath hot Helios breathes
from age unknown
until he kisses earth
one final time to bid his Rose
farewell

La Luna’s Rose
her perfect counterpart

Ode to the Senses; a Sense of Prayer

When first I lost my sight,
my universe went dark obscure
blackest pitch of night
lit by dim memories
that blazed impressions
clearer than with lustrous light
though greater loss
not seeing you
than losing sight of all my world
and all the things you do.

When hearing left me deaf, a stone,
no worldly sound
my silent macrocosm locked inside
tinnitus my companion tone
quiet footsteps on the ground
your voice a memory that died
a quiet death,
though greater loss
not hearing you

Night in White Satin on a Wicker Bench On the Eve of Her Betrothal

Ode duh wicker webs we'd weave
when foist we practice off duh sleeve
instead o' writin' off duh cuff
‘bout wicker chairs ‘n wicker luff
Ya pounced on pins ‘n wicker tips
‘at poke ‘er dress while puckered lips
await romantic moment there
when luffy duffs fly in de air –
‘n lookin’ back at diamon’ ring
which Daddy thought a wond’rous thing
ah hopin’ wid mah fab’lous Miss
a moment o’ such kissy bliss
yo’ open eyes o’ blue o’ brown
sneakin’ peeks – well, –all aroun’
‘n ah be lookin’ fo’ a star
dat shines as purdy as yo’ are
‘n yo’ be lookin’ fo’ da moon
hopin’ we be kissin’ soon
beneat’ dat big ol’ oaken tree
where sittin’ once wuz yo’ ‘n me
