EnchantedA golden apple tang
Heralds summer's brightest fire
But I prefer to amble in
In the darkest corners
There are no haunted whispers
And only caramel shadows
Transfer daylight's memories
For unto me the stars
Snapping leaves leading moonlight
Are not my coldest lonely hour
But a renewal of soul
Other FishThere are other fish
In the sea, but none of them
Is the fish for me.
I've cast a long wish
Over tree, branching stream's stem,
Bait from creek shady.
Lure will flick and swish
With some glee, and stratagem
Hooks fishing trophy.
So those other fish
In the sea, compare not them
To my fish in stream.
StandI was a monument
Upon a sherbet horizon,
Pooled like oil
On pocked granite cheeks.
MollyMayhap she sports a biting smile
Or barks warning with lively style
Long and far she will wander in
Lope grassy paths to find therein
Your pride brought to safety's isle
Night TerrorsI danced in the dark
With a night owl's screams
And mosquito dreams,
And then when I fell
Where nobody's arms
Would latch onto me,
Down upon my knees,
I felt Moonlight's beams
Cut like diamonds.
On the Run (writing practice/teaser)I wasn't really looking for a fight that afternoon. I'm a semi-professional amateur acquisitions agent. That's a really nice way of saying I steal things for a living and sometimes I even get paid for it. This was supposed to be a quick in-and-out job that would have left me enough time to go get a manicure and maybe hit the Godiva store at the mall for my monthly free truffle. Instead, I now had two broken nails and was running down an litter-strewn alley at full tilt. Behind me, there was a lot of cursing and growling which probably had something to do with the trash cans I had just heaved at my pursuers. I chanced a quick look back and didn't like what I saw. Two weres had grown to four and they were hurdling the cans like track stars at the Olympics.
"Bad news, Amira, you're about to hit a wall, a brick one specifically."
I scowled at the tiny dragonling. Rox was only the size of my longest finger with fluttery leathery wings dusted with fine fur. He was currently spor
Caught"Will you catch me?"
She, too far hooked on the dark,
Shattered stardust glittering,
Oh, her finest whiskey smile,
A tawny constellation.
"Please fall with me."
He, flaring winsome too bright,
Heaven's starlight exploding,
Oh, his sweetest brewing laugh,
"We're alone now."
They, blind persistent stumbling,
Drenched in silky oaken spice,
Oh, their spirited iced rocks,
Reaching away from cosmos.
On My KneesIt was quite comical, can't you see,
How much of your bullshit I believed,
Or really not, I played along;
I got so sick of the same damn song.
It not at all dawned like light on me -
Another might find me on my knees.
I wasn't inclined so I never saw,
Until I was; next, he came to call.
A thunderous boom and you left me;
I have had enough this time, stay free!
Lightning struck and brought my Devil Dog,
Quicksilver chemistry, no more fog.
I had forgotten how to be
Purely submissive on my knees
Head arched in laughter with a smile;
I missed this place, been quite a while.
Each day rewards, he turns a key,
Reopens doors I didn't foresee
Could be unlocked or topple walls;
Safe in my Dog's hug, I am small.
I flung that ache into the sea;
I shed last drops of misery;
At last I opened up my heart
To a Devil Dog, a fresh start.
You did me a favor, so you see,
By turning your back and leaving me,
Secret, slowly killing a whole love,
Until there's nothing more to speak of.
Friendship kindles, fo

Pain is teaching
Blindness is strength
Balance seeks itself

will the sun shield us with her bedouin cloth,
years from now will i be ashamed of what i had or

will we let them pass,
who would be searching for us
between the frigid lips of the desert,
who would send hounds after us
except they're running,
who would leave tracks of dried saliva,
tumbleweed tongues, father,
are they far away and are we cowards
and if we are,

will my wish be granted,

True Strength LiesHeroes are strong beyond physical belief
With the bulking muscles to intelligence
With super powers to physical perfection
The image everyone wants to be
Heroes are stronger than any man
They are gods in the flesh
They can crush temples and fight monsters with their bare hands
They are only myths, but they are images
Be as strong as the almighty Hercules
You have the strength within to control everything
Destiny works against you and for you
All that matters is strength
Images, that's all they are
Hopes in having that body of Hercules
The tiny man getting picked on to becoming a strong man
Strength in the form of an image, but not a inward image
Samson, oh Samson
Just as bold and mighty as Hercules
The last judge who flirted with danger
He was stronger than any man, but he was really weak
A Nazarite who couldn't say no to all things that were bad
Flirted with danger with his physical being
But then was crushed by Delilah for a payment of 1,000 pieces of silver

Lydia: The WallI used to live behind a wall,
a barrier separating me
from Those Out There,
and them from me,
tall and wide,
Some bricks were laid
some by religion
some laid by others,
some by myself,
and so the wall grew.
Some bricks were pretty,
others I hated,
some made me feel safe,
Some I wished I could break away -
others I never wanted to,
and so the wall stood,
my friend and my foe,
from Those Out There,
and them from me.
There it stood,
Gentile and Jew,
woman and man,
Greek and foreigner,
slave and free,
rich and poor -
my neighbour and me,
I felt safe
because of the Wall -
you broke it down.
Down it fell
as men took women seriously -
this woman -
Down it fell
as Jews entered a Gentile home -
my home -
Down it fell
as you gave me
a new life,
a new perspective.
Let me live
a life without walls
in your House without locks
where all may come in.
Let me invit
On FractalsI encode the commands
that instruct the machine:
and plot points softly.
Art predating earthly creation
hides within the nature of numbers.
Here, there is a sun;
there, a solar system;
yonder, an arabesque.
Beauty, from before
the light that was to be,
now awaits without fear
whatever end may one day come.
Discovered, as they were,
barely more than a lifetime ago,
these wonders, to us, are strung
between the infinities of time,
on sheets of pure mathematics
glimmering with the fingerprints
I ask for Your strength
And Your energy, Lord
For my dearest friend and me
Send Your Holy Spirit
To guide our footsteps
Provide what You know we need
For Your promise
Will not give us more than we can bear
Like the PhoenixLike the Phoenix
Like the Phoenix we raise
from the ashes of devastation
We raise rebirthed
to spread our wings and fly
like the phoenix
It's All A DreamAs my memories fade tonight
This liquid bliss changes minds,
And despite the light peering through the blinds
I close my eyes and I take flight.
Before I wake I want it to take
Every ounce of pain away,
And as it does I want to feel
Like everything I see isn't real.
Where has the time gone?
What have I become?
When will the translucent day dreams die down
So I can slowly drift down to the ground?
And as the pain fades so slow
My red and blue eyes begin to glow,
While my body floats in the winds smooth flow
I touch the ground, and now I know
It's all a dream within my brain
That came to me when I was sane.
Keep in Touch!
