Iced Solid

Saltwater frozen
floes dark violet
watch crystals
Aquinas on lust
Venus globally warm
Arctic arrows hunt
stones cut stars on top

Regarding Love And Poems

chagall backdrop

I find myself at the door again,
same as before,
as always

I
embark

hoping to find the turn
that short crooked bend
to lead me to nestle
beside you

cocooned in
the umbra

to the depth
of wellness

atop dry land
and close to
healing water

a spot marked
essentially X

Who To Follow

This one’s too religious,
this one’s selling stuff,
this one’s in a language
that I don’t parlay enough.

That one’s background’s way too dark,
can hardly read the text,
while that one . . .
well, not too sure where the poetry is,
so I move on to the next.

Some are just too wordy,
and some are downright trite,
so I continue searching
for the one that feels
more right.

At last there’s those so perfect,
the voice of souls who yearn,
who let it out to let you in,
whisperers above the din.

The lost verse – added March 16, 2020:

Some are way too sexy,
there’s nothing wrong with that,
I just can’t spend my evenings
with my lap beneath my hat

P.S. I miss you Mike!
