  • MAY CLOAKS

    May with jade… cloaks
    millennial oaks
    as rain their roots soaks
    foiling lightning’s strokes
    foiling wood turned to smoke

    EARRING

    When their love was a yearling
    he brought her amethyst earrings.
    Though this did her tears bring
    she needs no gifts.
    She always knows
    her darling’s endearing.

    PINK US

    The sun with dawn pinks us
    .. each Rao, Lee, Mohammed,
    Brown, Chavez and Pinkus.

    THE LAW OF ATTRACTION

    Beauty trumps
    striving emotion.
    Seek others, says AA, through
    attraction not promotion.
    With not a word, no motion
    the bloom pulls bee’s devotion.

    ALL CREATION

    Jesus said not ‘go teach
    all nations’… but
    ‘teach all creation’.
    St Francis often
    preached through
    silent example

    WAVE SQUARE

    A walk on the beach
    is squared to the waves
    .. a square which blesses
    them.

    DEWY SCENTS

    Bees are to flowers drawn
    by the dewy scents of dawn.

    UNBARBED HEART

    He fishes for fish souls,
    not their bodies. He has an unbarbed heart.
    He has no net.
    His pole has no hook, no lure,
    no agenda.

    *
    Footnote: St Anthony is reputed to
    have preached to the fishes,
    who listened.

    RESPECTING AUTONOMY

    Only for a brief time
    can one control
    the movements of
    another’s soul.
    He thinks this
    while waves unroll
    their uncontrolled
    and ceaseless scroll.

    MIST CLOTHED

    Mystifying mystical
    Neptune clothed
    in mist
    rose with his waves
    and kissed
    the moon he’d so
    missed.

    CHAMBERED SHELLS

    As Orpheus
    led Eurydice out of hell
    As Michelangelo released
    David from stone,
    Love calls us all
    from chambered shells
    to seat us in our
    own heart thrones.

    WATERY ARMS

    Neptune thoughtlessly
    tossed his love
    in the high tide
    onto the shore…
    where she was bereft
    ….stranded among
    the empty shells
    fizzing with inner
    surfbubbles, garlanded
    by seaweed,
    and housed under driftwood.
    *
    Realizing his great
    mistake, he flowed
    in…lifted her up
    with his watery arms
    and took her home.

    DUNE FRINGED

    Double the octave
    of Uranus,
    the notes of the tunes
    of seaclothed Neptune
    are fringed by dunes
    and awash in the moon.
    *

    Footnote:
    The orbit of Uranus
    which rules friend of the
    underdog Aquarius is 84
    years, or exactly half
    that of Neptune, ruler of
    Pisces and friend
    of all beings.

    WEAVER OF WAVES

    He who sculpts scallops
    and carves caves
    Who paints the dawn
    and weaves the waves
    Who engraves the frost
    and knits nutshells
    can do anything.
    He dwells as a genie
    within our hearts
    awaiting only our
    requests.
    *

    Footnote:
    God answers all prayers
    .. some through melting
    away our desire…
    only time determines
    when.
