Updates!

Sorry for the absence as of late! To all 3 of you who actually read these poems/stories. I have been reading and trying to finish a book with the little free time I have and finally did yesterday. It was “The King of Elfland’s Daughter” by Lord Dunsany. He is the father of modern fantasy/world-buildingContinue reading “Updates!”

Winter’s call

With the Winter’s chill raging like a river untamed I shake off the lethargy of Summer’s bane What awakens inside ascends as frost bitten breath Manifesting as life to some and to others as death The wintry mood is feared for its extremes of deprivation and despair Yet its forceful hyperborean dwellers are beautiful beyondContinue reading “Winter’s call”

Vespers

Cold wind flows past the dying trees in streams Taking the last leaves swiftly followed by moonbeams It is on darkening cobblestone paths that we tread Out of the approaching night’s bosom and dread To the tolling of bells do we steadfastly approach The serpent of old slithers along offering reproach Never mind his venomousContinue reading “Vespers”

Fog’s rising mist bathes the leaves and muddy soil beneath my beast. Darkened woods with the chill of a pale and anemic daylight envelope my existence.Continue reading “TELOS”

Pale Dancer

“ “Everything is perfect but I can remember when it wasn’t. There’s a strange and uneasy feeling I have regarding those times. It’s one of nostalgia and yearning.

Double Helix

How long has it been, love? My heart cries “too long!” My head sighs “not long enough.” Is everything perfect for you now? Have all the pieces fallen into place? Yeah, me either. You seem disappointed in me. You thought by now I’d be “free.” Free of the archaic superstition. Taking up rank with theContinue reading “Double Helix”
