Vineyard V

The past did reign , tears

left stain, and the wine flows in

aged apology…

Vineyard IV

Diverse rich molten soils

erupt into twisted hope

with grape-bulging vines…

Vineyard III

Behind aged stone walls,

Italian wine flows as veins

breathed from purple grapes…

Vineyard II

Brown ground bakes under

sun’s relentless draught, holds

hostage enduring grapes…

Under crystal sky

midnight blue grapes hang upside

down, dripping harvest…


Among the Stars

   A Dream

white moons hang next to one another

bringing heaven’s presence and earthy observer

to notice…

Hanging like large bulbs lighting existence,

closer and closer they merge into one light

colliding …

looking across the way into the darkness

the moon dust falls light on a field of magnificent emerald

green elephants…

they move as though dancing without music,

gracefully they silhouette around the other

peacefully moving…

again I look upon the heavens and the moons

have separated again, white light emerging

toward the other…

cataclysmic they collide once again,

burst into a million stars

the heavens reflect…

Blue Moon
