rain drips ~ nonet

rain dripping puddles of delusions

decidedly delight day dreams

divorcing real time dramas

and enter zany worlds

of sun kissed maybes

flitting carefree

singing loud





with longings

in deep darkness

that push forth to shine

lights glow up the present

with exits to the past closed

Let’s marry now with forever

so we can walk barefoot for free

a protest poetry

My blood on your hands father

screaming in scarlet rage

inks today in red letter

crimson sacrilege

My blood on your tied hands mother

crusts, maroons you and me

and yet, we can protest

damn destiny

My blood on your hands Country

courses carmine in citizens

Will you stop the massacre?

your daughter asks

Reena’s exploration challenge #154 – background

Look ~ a decima

Where I go, no one can follow

and yet you want to come with me

fall into my reality

pay no heed to the tomorrow

or the time we have to borrow

to turn just one leaf of our book

without turning behind to look

armed only with vehement faith

in the us that’s written in our fate

winking at the chances we took

outside the inside

A Catrin Welz-Stein’s image
exploring webbed realms
wide-eyed wonder flows slow 
outside the inside
freeing young fury
curls of ideology
new identity
midnight wisdom storms
gift wrapped existence
still breathing for more

Under a sky shouting lightbulbs

I sit, my once strong man hands sunk deep

inured to sight or touch of love or lovers

quagmired in the undesirable nadir of thoughts, of setbacks

I want look up at the cool milky-way again….and imagine stars

shubun ~ equinox

stars put together

a celestial surprise

my little beings


when on earth and sky

a momentous magic wand

spells an equinox


welcoming seasons

night wakes in wonder wishing

you sparkling new days
