element of surprise

~
there is something
je ne sais quoi
about love
channeling into heart
from unexpected
outlets
unbeknownst
making permanent
nests
~
so what
if expected
fonts dry up
its these windfall
elemental surprises
that truly delight
filling forlorn
gaps in
life

Fell swoop

Heart break
In one fell swoop
a tender mercy
Its pain, a clean cut
grief tsunami
Once done,
passé

killer are heart
breaks in slivers
dished in platters, rendered
by self’s immersion in self
clueless to love’s erosion,
lover’s pain, bitten back
tears

love – a scrap, a fire

Love is
a consuming
fire
purifying
never
destroying
~
only
elevating
mining precious
emotional ore
out of lovers
meeting,
parting
eternally
~
we are all
scraps and
Karmic debris
regardless
of mojo,
hubris
~
when we
perchance
entwine, dovetail
in sync, we make
music, life
sings
~
torn
asunder
we wander
flotsam jetsam
in big black
yonder

daguerreotype

tête-à-tête with Death

Myself

you live in me
as numerous
daguerreotypes
host of beloved
faces you snatched
untimely, now
you’ve the gall
to assert you’re
kinder than life
~
Death

It is I
the vilified
standing before you
stymied, stupefied
redo your math on life
a loomed litany of small big
joys, cart load of grief
I
on other hand
only bring
infinite
everlasting
peace
~
