ROARING QUIET

Pressing an ear to the ubiquitous earth
The old man of the upland
Lies dead and waiting
For slowly approaching feet.

Silence------meanwhile
And the lull keeps bulging at the seams.

Never coming storm
When will the snows avenge themselves?...

PROMISED LAND

Angels and devils chase
Across the darkening path of easy faith
On the pensive spread of consciousness.

The sun has burnt out his fury
Now sits beneath the indifferent hill
In remorseful respite.

Fidgeting darkness growls
And plunges out,...

THE POET

Many a journey I've made
Long and hard, to places
Far off and strange
Much of suffering and pain
I've seen
Like the journey of a honey bee
To serve the Venus of the Verse
What deprivations I've had
Ah, the penance that I did
To purge myself...

HAPPY FACE

I see the emoji
Of a happy face
My finger moves
To click
It almost reaches there
I pull it back
Hearing my soul say
Happiness does not have a face
Joy has has no home
And delight, no form
Nor is there a shape
Of peace and gratitude.
...

BANG

The door banged
I was startled
At my work
But more amazed I was
At unnecessary violence
Found in the things.
Then I noticed
My little son
Had come in-------excitedly
Meaning no harm.

Such is life, too
Sweet and innocent
But cruel to...
