"....and the hot force of the stars were impelled 

   to come into being." (Parmenides, from Simplicius, Commentary on On the Heavens)

Mother's ascent bears more life within.

The tranquil sound of her word 

fills my inner ear, 

mind's eye sees her smile

and the brilliant blue 

of her bright eyes.

She's revived in the bosom

of my spirit forever.

Lips like knives,

Rose cheeks hives...

Hillocks of honey

sweetly prick me.

When vivid hues pale

to twilight and cold

colors fade for a spell,

softness lustfully sheds gold

as leaves tumble stiff and frail.

Heaven's Smithy


"Floor of copper, floor of gold....Beyond the custom-house door, ajar, the street at sunset seemed aflame."

Bright Showers

Puddle steps mar


Waves distort aspects

as moist air translates

her hair's scent

to redolent Dianthus.

Skyline's penumbra stretches

'cross obsidian streets

as we dissolve lento

in downpours of light.
