Changing Sky


Changing Sky

huddle with me
the sky is changing
and you’re still a little girl

I could take you hiking
or chase you through
Japanese gardens

you say you’ve never been…

you could show me kindness
the warmth beneath the stone
the reasons for the pain

I’ve been, but never say…

but not right now
cause’ the sky is changing
and we both still hope
for more…


Drowsy Moon


Drowsy Moon

intoxicated by love
then, slapped cold sober..
the foolish look on my face
lest, I drink so much again..

battles of the heart
the cruelest ones…
the loser
never gets to die..

there’s a drowsy moon tonight
just the solitude I need
as I relive
this sacred war…

Digital Darling


Digital Darling

how many times
can I go there ?
To that place where I tempt fate
and you sleep with reality,
where I whisper possibilities
and you quote facts
where I long to love you
( if only in words )
and you look the other way
throwing scraps to the birds
and leaving me starving…

can’t passion thrive outside of touch ?
if I can imagine kissing you
haven’t I worked harder at love
than just doing it ?
I do imagine…
and it is so real
I can feel the lines in your lips
where you nervously bit them in anticipation of mine.
I can smell the heat
coming off your skin
mixing with desire and yearning,
a smell that has no rival
like you have no rival
in the digital world we meet in
a world where God let me find you
( he doesn’t make mistakes )
and talk with you
and love you
in my own digital way
though my flesh seeks your touch
my heart
just longs for your words..




fireplace flames
beckon me closer
with orange fingers
of disrespect
and dare me
to throw another
dream of love
on the pile
to see how long
it will burn…

I must look like a fuel…

Refrigerator Light



Refrigerator Light

I remember the night
we made love
by the light
of the

the coolness
of the open door…
no match…
for the heat
of summer passion

linoleum love
with kitchen crumb scars
the evidence
of a perfect recipe
of hearts

but now
you are gone

cooking in another kitchen

and my refrigerator light
burned out…. long ago…

I feel no need
to replace it…

Summer Love


Summer Love ( Song Lyrics )

I remember summer love
as it blew through the trees
you, within a perfect sun
painting kisses on me
and if love has a color
it’s partial to blue
cause I feel it now
when I’m thinking of you

never has a winter moon
ever shone like tonight
bitter in his lonely task
he prefers black and white
and there’s always tomorrow
to pack up and go
the roads always there
when you’re ready to grow

I remember summer love
as you wrote it for me
safe within a quiet life
I reflect frequently
and we’re all missing pieces
that puzzle us still
but I remember summer love
and the dreams it fulfilled






hold very still.
I like the way the moonlight
paints your face
so softly…

as I sit
memorizing your breath
through slightly parted lips
my hands,, hungry for the freedom
that the night bestows
my body, longing
to feel your weight
like the shoreline feels the waves

love doesn’t just happen
yes, it does

hold very still.
while I ponder
which came first
the wanting…
or the need,
and let’s see
just how deep
this love
can go…
