A Splash of Red

A splash of red Against a green canvas An orange center invites pollen spread A splash of red Attracts honeybee and aphid A well of nectar overflowing bodice A splash of red Against a green canvas Thanks for reading.

Metamorphosis

Mighty forces shape our destiny Elegant wings form outward Touching the tips of others And lighting up our Mindful incubator giving life Only to those who embrace the singular Rays bending upward toward a righteous Path dictated by a shared History unconsciously understood Only to those who desire it Submission to the volitive command Inferred by essentiality Sovereign wings take flight Thanks for reading.

The Harriers Set Off the Road

The harriers set off the road We followed with no regard for our thirst Alfalfa and cow pies in fields mowed The hounds all angling to be first We followed with no regard for our thirst Despite the seed tickling our throats The hounds all angling to be first The wet of water seemed remote Despite the seed tickling our throats We ran on in the heat The wet of water seemed remote To find…

A Hot Bullet Seared Through His Flesh

A hot bullet seared through his flesh Blood poured down marking his collar Bullets rained down from high thresh Surprising and stinging in death sprawler Blood poured down marking his collar He determined to die helping others Surprising and stinging in death sprawler He lay over the young girl in pothers He determined to die helping others Her eyes were as glass staring away He lay over the young girl in pothers He started to…

As It Should

A budded rose stem On thin branch in course sand It shrinks under sun A gingham maid pours water Rushing down onto the crown Glass beads dot petals Dripping into the puddle The green leaves shimmer Morning sun climbs high Drying the single red bud The flower stem wilts Petals droop down in distress Nightfall sunsets relief Gingham maid retrieves the pail Spray dances around brown root Desert sun turns hot Too much for English…

Marching Down Fifth Street

One hundred twelve in the bright florescent midnight shade I bumble through a weary crowd marching down The Strip beside dancing neon, drunken girls, and gold firelight Mojave desert heat blasts the granite marble hills towards God’s tower man-made One hundred twelve in the bright florescent midnight shade Dreams fleeting as fast silver coins tumble through the flashing casino parkade The jingle-jangle rhythm strikes a mirthful heartbeat of disjointed amusement in the night One hundred…

In the Mirage

In the mirage   Ripples rise before my eyes The standing noon sun heat dries Beads of salt sweat on my forehead   Leaving me heatstroke weak as I tread In the ravine, a winding snake path intensifies Following a sand mouse lengthwise   A rodent’s fate demise I ponder the tan path to the tragic end   In the mirage   A fan palm hides rock art mysteries A spear thrown ripples past a prize Landing short of red rock bloodshed  …

Arms Outstretched in the Dark

I stand in the darkness Outstretched arms seeking a name Of one person who served a cause Proud in service. Each believed in the mighty nation Pressed into liberation of people oppressed Under a threat of ominous winds along the Ho Chi Mihn. A boy my son’s age; he knows a lot, so he thinks. This truth learned before death; Warriors serve their masters even when they change their minds. I’m looking for a relevant pawn in an irrelevant war.…
