POEM FROM TITLES (Destroyer, Muse, Metaphor)

THE DESTROYER

Like life... the destroyer… he made me…absent…
knowing…at the finish… anything and everything…
from big to small…nothing…nothing is sacred...
what for why... the search…the connection...
small deaths...dead stars…mercy killing….
now or never...goodbye forever...the end...

you are….
gold….the prize…
my muse…..
beautiful….heartbeat….

Cat Envy

I wish I were a cat
content and proud
At peace with the world

I wish I were as wise and see
There's more to life
than meets the eye

I wish I were a cat
who's seen it all
And knows exactly
how the big ball rolls

I wish I were a cat
(If I ever come back!)

Plaything

The black snake
Hiding in the grass
The black snake
So frightening

The black snake
That wouldn’t let me pass
Was a toy snake
Of a little boy

A toy snake
That was all it was
A toy snake
Left there in the grass

A small toy
Of a little boy
That a little girl
Should have enjoyed

The Song Remains the Same

You have morphed into a guitar
You’ve been transformed into musical notes
You have become
a plaintive song in my heart

That was all you were
That is all you are
That is all you'll ever be

I have said goodbye
I've thrown water to the fire

But still... the guitar weeps
Still... the silenced heart beats

Crybaby

Does the weather make me suffer more than anyone

Was a dark cloud assigned to hound me

Does the rain fall heaviest on where I stand

Is the sun's ire directed straight at me


Was the cold wind told I must be followed

Was the snowstorm summoned to bury me

Is the weather really cruel or am I just a

crybaby! : (

Starry Night

To dream
What for
Disappointment on hold
Life unfolds
Another star falls
On my lap

Another one that didn’t last
Quickly turning into dust
So fast
The dream
The star
Was all it was, dust

What more follows
The night sky still sparkles
Beckoning, inviting
Promising tomorrow
Another star
A billion more

Bastard Son's Story

I stand before you Father,
but you refuse to see
Oh dear Father, have I fallen from the tree
of your good grace, our last embrace
now a memory
Oh Father, have you forgotten me

I kneel before you Father
But you do not feel
Oh dear Father, have you forsaken me
I am your flesh and blood
Dear Father, look at me!
I am your ill-begotten history

April's Song

(with thanks to Sandra Fowler, for reminding me of the beautiful month of April)


I am the beginning
I am the start
I am the awakening
I am the spark

I am the seed
I am the urge
I am the promise
of rebirth

I am the journey
Without end
I am the circle
Once again

I am peace
After the storm

MEET ME BY THE RIVER (The Rendezvous)

Meet me by the river tonight
Just you and me under the pale moonlight
I promise you I won’t be afraid
of the dark

Meet me by the river tonight
Just you and me, the moon and the stars
I promise I will give you my heart
There in the water

Meet me by the river tonight
Where the wind makes the water sigh
Take me to the deepest part
And I’ll show you how brave my heart

Meet me after dark, my love
By that river where they say
A year ago today two lovers drowned

Cheshire Smile

(with apologies to Leonardo da Vinci)

What is it with the Cheshire Cat
and that confounding smile
That so beguiled me long ago as a child
Unlike Mona Lisa's, it remains a mystery
Between the Cheshire Cat
And now the grown-up me

What is it about that maddening
maddening! smile
After all these years
After all this time...

(the Cheshire Cat is a character in Lewis Carroll's book 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, ' a book that has made a lasting impact on me more than any other book read as a child)
