Model Pose

Daybreak - / Her face rises/ Patches of/ Sunlight dancing/ Dust settling/ In a tunnel of light/ The canvas speaks/ A resolute stillness/ As she graces / the page.

The Poet

Café in hand/ the poet/ ruminates/ deep things/ within her heart/ the cup warming/ keeps the winter/ at bay/ the pen limbers up/ strokes the page/ with fire/ and intensity/ She downs/ the sacred fluid/ its robust flavor/ satisfying/ she watches/ the steam rise/ and dance/ into the air./ Another poem/ is born.

Tense

I cringe/crumpled,/crinkled,/tossed,/forgotten/I awaken,/blossom born/my fingers unclench/as I reach for air.

Untitled

The moon spills/ on me/ draping me/ in silent silver/ its immaculate glow/ bathing me/ I gaze out/ at the open window/ as the bejeweled sky/ looks on

Honey

Honey Honey/ silent/ golden dollop/ Finger and tongue/ Strike it/ Like a dagger/ A skimming caress/ Melting away/ Miles inside

Stay

Stay The stillness within me/ beckons you/ to stay/ my tongue/ a diving board of words/ that dance in and out/ inviting you/ for this dalliance./ you have chosen wisely/ your visit/ works wonders.

Spanish Poem

I only have the snatches of this poem so far. I birthed it, and I have to finish it one of these days. It's my first Spanish poem. Helados/ Ninos corren a volar

Hello New Year!

Hello New Year! / Hello new child, / Your face / Blank like a canvas/ Waiting for/ Adventure/ Trivia/ Terrain/ Journeys/ Stories that stir/ Us triumphantly forward.../ Welcome to this place -/ Of lost desires/ Of lost tears/ Of nimble chances/ Waking us,/ Forlorn to leave us / Your gift remains,/ Cleaving to the heart./ Welcome, 2016!

Tourist Trap

Tourist Trap


If you're too green

for a place,

everyone can feel it.


As sure as self is

Closer to the entrance

A walled chasm

Of separation

Invades


Streets collide

At a juncture

Meet at your feet

Head over heels

This raggedy doll

Hurtled

Catapulted in time


This urban martyrdom

of female patronesses

Planted in crevices

Of concrete and steel


There's something,

somewhere

That does not want a body,

Watches us pass by


Make sense of this

in life's puzzle,

of shards configuring

The stillness remains

Mourns only the

lonely grids of time.

Words Dance.

Words are our wealth.  They dance into the spaces between people.  People are very creative with words.  What happens when a word is said or written?  Words determine how something is batted out in public.  The words we use set, bump, and pass meaning to those around us.

What does a word do?  What does it say?  What does it do when it is written?  What do other words around a particular word,either spoken or written, do around that particular word?

Poets explore this every time in their business and work.  Words paint images and meanings in ordinary life as well.  They make things fit and materialize.

Don't forget to use words wisely.  They are very useful tools in our vocabulary and day to day life.
