Beckoning

~
Lifting covers
Off
Wrappings
Found
Pain curled
Inside,
Trapping
Mind
Proffered
Leg up
To pull out
Of doldrums~
Pain said
Allow me
to Wallow
Stay
Fallow
Lay
Low

Until
He
Heeds
Relents
Comes
Calling!

My Divine

Ever
in flight
Flighty mind…

Soars
As a kite
Firmly
fastened
To
the cord
Of
your divine
Name
Anchored
Timelessly
Inside ~

Sweet Tooth

Sweet toothYou’ve given me a high
You’ve given me low
You’ve been my downfall,
Do you even know?

My secret forays
Excessive indulgences…

Fingers in the cookie jar
Away from prying eyesYou have added to my comeliness
More than surfeit of flesh needed
Painful pricey kneading hasn’t helped
Either, do you even know?

You are a canker to my hanker
Now that autumn is here
Fall away sweet tooth, as you
Are no longer my savior, know !

Canceled Postage Stamp

In a mirror my face appeared to me
Like a twice-canceled postage stamp ~ Charles Simic

Visage, vis a vis
Age notwithstanding

Round the block
Backwards forwards

Aquiver, candle on fire
We took measure

Image visage
Visage image

Measuring up
Slips from lips

Cups brimming
Gogh still life

Broth, juicy
Youth, timed

Origami, present
Folded expertly

No Dorian secretive
Zest intact, much

Weathered, lived
Twice canceled

Postage

heaven and earth

 

We meet
Where dreams
Wake to reality
And
Horizon quenches
Thirst
Partaking
Manna
From sky’s
Luscious
Lips

Joy thereof
Reverberates
Noisily
And then
Settles to
Quietude
Of a cat
Satiated~
