Ginger - January 23rd, 2020


Didn’t take pictures that day
Wish my camera could speak
These are memories I remember

She had long red hair
Freckle kisses on the cheeks
Tanned rose in gold and umber

Beauty mark on her lip
Behind her eyelids I saw the beach
And lashes that made waves surrender

She summoned a horse
Rode nude the tides unleashed
This was back in December !

Color Splashes - March 8th, 2018

Color Splashes

It’s a canvas
It started white
But we took ‘r chances

Dipped our fingers in red
Flirting, smiling and laughing
We plotted ‘r hearts’ advances

We blend in the brown
We drew some of the greens
We sat down on high branches

A fire started without a pit
We couldn’t see through the gray
We had no lights or matches

We talked and times passed
Roses blossomed before spring
We could smell forests and ranches

We took few steps back
Are we drawing a portrait of love
or days of ‘r lives with patches?

My Lawyer - March 7th, 2018

Rough in the looks
Buff on the edges
Lives by the book
Tough and judges

I got bruised
Hint, a liar 
I’m accused
I find myself on trial

Who’s to defend me,
when you’re my lawyer?
You’re my only witness
Love is my destroyer!

I attempt to run
I try to escape
You aim your gun
and begin to undrape

A silent tear
Eyes shut in disbelief
Dragged down, oh dear
Dropped my fig leaf 

I heard your verdict
I do have the right to appeal
But next time be more considerate 
Or I’ll turn this heart to steel

The Unknown - March 7th, 2018

Drinking my latte
Listening to our song
Searching for answers
Didn’t hear from you for long

You could be sick
You gotta be busy
My heart comes up with excuses
Yet my body feels frizzy 

I fake a smile
I take another sip
Nobody around me is looking
My pulse begins to dip

No missed calls
I stare at my phone
Not even a message
I begin to fear the unknown

I grab the car keys
I have to remain strong
I try not to look back
Wondering what went wrong

Heart to Heart - March 6th, 2018

I keep telling myself
It’s a mirage
It’s a dream
what got a hold... on me!

I don’t know what to say
Is it the eyes, 
is it the posture,
or is it... just me?!

I find myself flirting
I find myself smiling
I even try to escape
I find you in front... of me!

Can’t get enough 
You leave me lingering such 
You leave me wondering much
I could feel you touch... within me!

I try to comprehend
I try to ground myself
whatever I try
I sense still you’re... with me!

I play our song
I surrender to my thoughts 
My heart starts to race
and I was told it’s not... in me!

Piano - Feb 6, 2018


I see you...
tapping your keys at the beach
pulling my strings with every stroke
as the waves sneak to your feet... to fiddle 

I hear you...
quavering melodies to the wind
drifting my emotions with a cork
as my bottled message anchors... a paddle 

I need you...
conducting my breath at the podium 
orchestrating dawn through fog
as the ink sheds on your lid... a fallen feather.

SCREAM - Feb 1, 2014

It’s the agony of the soul
 when the heart breaks and bleeds
 when the eyes moan and weep

 as the mind shuts in disbelief!
