the sun refused to shine today

counting broken promises

empty rhetoric and dull threats

this bird has already flown

smirking under the cover of moonlight

crickets serenade his thoughts

hired dogs of war

political talking heads  

with hardened fingers

pointing across seas

to far-off lands

picking riddled sides

haunting precarious futures

sending tomorrow’s children

while fevered rumors

and blistering chants

languages of war

ratcheting up again

settling  widening differences

with more death, malice, and destruction

trading rocks and stones

of centuries past

for all of the

missiles and bullets

of a warped modern day


so soon

Churchill Woods 0623 007

churned up from the depths

life and death… equal parts

pure neutrality

…of the creation of new

…and the destruction of old

Dented Saint


In chasing shadows

a crushing of anxiety

a building of uncertainty

the only certainty-

-are the pains that will have to be endured


their hurt will be without end

their suffering without end

their peace will be crushed down to fragments

their resolve will be broken

no worry


… of you will be taken as well  


gradual building of giants

small things with exaggerated shadows

elongated phantom forms

magnified sounds and imagined torments


the enormity

of our burdens



your pain




my empathy


I see no other choice


but to carry……



truth be, I would know no other way

evening’s approach

gradually light to dusk

life’s hurried pace slows

brightest starlight

darkness of night contrasts  

lonely footsteps down the street

not to be confined


of many shapes


only mortal boundaries


every colour scheme
