I used to read your poems
but lately you don't write
you're silent and aloof
you know that isn't right.
You can't close a door once opened
you can't abolish all your dreams
you're a poet of the heart
mustn't fall apart at the seams.
Say what you can in words
they speak the message true
spoken from the heart
the poems will see you through.
A hermit's not your style
a recluse, you are not
never give up writing
of things that you've been taught.
I used to read your poems
I'd read them once again
if you would send them out
(this one's from a poet friend)

The sadness will last forever
The loneliness will last too

Tonight the sky turned yellow
Then black through deepest blue

Catastrophe conditions
Basketball i knew

My sons sun far from me
Seattle rendezvous.

I watch life float by
like a dragonfly
riding the breeze.
I need to seize the
current like a
brick of gold,
soar ever upward,
above the swamps,
and dead lilies.
Transcendent light blinds
temporarily, but it's
necessary for new sight,
and stronger wings.

My Dear Poet
One flick
of a matchstick
I light you up

One blow
at a candle glow
off you go

One glitch
of a light switch
you flicker

One snap
of a mouse trap

I've finally come undone
   the whole crazy orchestra
   plays frenzied on the sun.
   I stare hard to see them
   in the blinding light of
   noon finally seeing truth.

Qualyxian Quest
The steps of dailiness
Are steps down Franklin Street

Bus rides and basketball
Students too to meet

Be strong my anxious heart
Be quick my weary feet

Do your best before you rest
No surrender. No retreat.
