Hazard but mostly harmless ...
Hazard but mostly harmless ...

Love, you're all heart
leaping off the highest peak
unfolding wings that span
thermals of this passion
with the winds of desire
soaring ever farther
into that selfless sky
tempting Icarus' fate
in amour's armored doublet
all's fair in you

Thirty five hundred year tomb uncovered-
left behind, unable to remember:
joys spent on rivers edge
music pulled from fragrant airs
cornu copiae of a summer day
a lane walk with friend in hand
climbing up a clear view stand
oak and willow in breezes time
segmented damsel fly clings to stalk
iridescent cellophane wings
waitress waters stream chameleon
two fossil ladies rest as in amber
guarding this love in perihelion
birth and death in every niche
shear woven garments in life's chamber

Glacial night, did retreat its end this morning
spilled its guts in shades of reds and golds
foretold in quilted coming storms; gray wisps growing old
first raindrops streaked on window glass ...forlorn
days' gladdened promise turned mingy turbid clouds
obscuring ardent land in fading curtained light
once more into this breach reached out in finger
and switched to on and offed offensive curly night
a sword of pin point sun with iridescence slayed
this in between spiraling winds' naked brae

Why does that smile still send stars to oblivion?
When dawn seeps over the roof tops red
Juliet too finds crimson comfort in this heart
Night looks on so distantly and morning clears
as violin's string highest note bowed long
You, peak at every thought and wish of love

Long-neck and Skinny-slime; snails-
took to the road on the lips of a tale
nothing but shirt homes on their tiny backs
two streamlet travelers traverse on their track
Small hands from above snatch one, then other
which racing nerves impart to these sticky brothers
To soup can avoided was not destination
their plan, their effect, was a dash-bet narration
by two little boys made of puppy dog tails
and a board made of wood defining their trail
just beginning and end barked herald's voice wail
of this run for the edge near a carpenter's peel
for Long-neck and Skinny were keeping it real
as they worked their way forward in after school inches
the two heard crowds peep by tree viewing finches
At last the crown won by Long-neck the victor
with Skinny-slime close second, a knot the predictor

Food etiquette finesse
click click clicks a morsel
down gullet's knowing passage
no paper napkin oil
or polymer can can
dance away from your toil
as you peck and check
each tiny victual
swoop and drop
to crack that nut pop
and with those delicate
chopsticks hammer kabuki knocks
and sa·yo·na·ra  home

Purer waters come from deep within the earth; not found in mud puddles.
