Story Of the Stars


Sat on the roof of the old house

The shingles faded with stories

The distant calling smoked hills

Border the earth and the stars

Calling like an original frame

The rustic whispers cry like wings

Voices from history and present

Soar across the deep night sky



Eight Haiku


atlantis returns

landing in clouds and light rain

slow tears from the sky




animals dream


in space, gas and clouds


dust rains


buried under Mars

for millions of secret years

lays Earth history


after all this time

you finally found a job

then beamed aboard


robot invaders

froze without lubrication

earth ran out of oil


liked her new boyfriend

until she found out, he was

only a hologram


telescope viewing

riding with the universe

in a time machine



Light Effect


The sun erupted

Light rose like erosion

To wash away

The night’s collection



Spiral Arms Sky


Border of spiral galaxy

Mountain asteroid city shines

Tall ice castle’s close together

Surface cover of cold light snow

A slight lean towards heavy side

Slow spin rotates towns and shadows

From balcony long arms reach out

From hundred million miles away



Solitary Clouds


Yesterday lots of clouds

Today clear skies

Few hours’ later one cloud appears

Perhaps loneliness is all about

Being a day or two behind

Two hours later

Another single cloud appears



Ode To Amanda


She emerged winged-foot from the sky

Like an angel in Apollo’s shadow

Fathers from the heavens fingers

Announce with thunderbolts and lightning

Messages drift above to form shapes

In different layers of colored clouds


Lands on a mountain cap with harp

Notes cut like ribbons to reveal

Distance between the long still islands

In the stoke of beating heart and rhythm

Held my hand like feathers falling

Fell through her like warmth reclaimed


Up ahead rotating pastures play

Scenes of tall castles golden shine

Strong winds unfold the darkness away

Where loneliness once walked freely

Transforms into along with her eyes

Only sunshine regardless of the hour



Space & Time


One cold wind chill night

Sitting in a dark room

Fully wide awake

Eyes intense

In a dreamlike state

Feeling a chill leak through

The cracks of the building

Looking out the picture window

And the street lights outside

I gaze up

And see the full moon

Spinning down towards me

Filling the room

I leave and take its place

Way up in the sky

She looks up and says

"Your closer now"

I go forever

Visiting another galaxy

Never finding

A star like her



A Rite Of Wrong


Mistakes can make you feel

Lingering and secluded

The present can breathe to life

Conceptions of the past

Standing on the edge of the soul



2:20 A.M.


There is a thief

In my house

Silent and immortal

It takes no money

Or possessions

It only robs me

Of my sleep



Prescription #L


Heard in a song

Love is a drug

If that is true

Then hate must be

A fatal disease

Please I want

You to live

Take your pills



The Clock


In my silence, will time heal all

For constantly I hear her call

All my life never felt so low

The clock in my heart runs so slow


The pain I have time cannot feel

Cut up with words as sharp as steel

The wounds are hidden deep below

The clock in my heart runs so slow


Now the days seem to drag on by

When I was with her time would fly

The ache ticks on I watch it grow

The clock in my heart runs so slow



The Last Ride


Let us ride the universe forever

Long before arriving at heavens gate

Let the lords of good and evil play with fate

While the grand gatekeeper holds the lever


Worldly ties will completely sever

With keys of time, no voids to hesitate

Journey across space a believer

Long before arriving at heavens gate


When the final day comes to deliver

Pointed upon the calendars last date.

Let the mighty lords know we will be late

The last breathe a message to receiver

Let us ride the universe forever.



A Ship In Flight


The arrow

Goes out spinning

Fast and far

Landing on a orbit

Near spheres and stars

That can see

And shine

Like curves in space

In her rotation

I feel the gravity



She Is Radiation


She is light, like the stars,

A reactor in my heart, in a way

Or a ray, I see my freedom decay,

So nuclear, with her love

Spills the fallout my way, in the neon

Of my life, she radiates all day.

She is radiation, like the glow in her face.

The signals, the bright lights

That she turns up on me, the energy,

The half-life’s; in her eyes I see green,

Like secrets, like a mission,

I see her on my screen, in the neon

Of my life, she radiates all day.

She is radiation, radiating from the inside



I See Your Vein  (Part One)


I see your vein marked and stabbed

A sword of pain you are trapped

In the castle, I see the night

A darken shadow a stream of light

I see your vein and feel the blue

The lion statues they seem to move

Out by the gate near the arch

I see your silhouette in the marsh

You are alone with the moon

I see the holes within a room

I see the vein the one that bleeds

Break the drawbridge out by the trees

The stone carvings they seem to talk

I see the armies when you walk

I see your vein and feel the blue



Mystery Lady


She smiles so flashy

Even with her eyes

When she comes around

It still drags in my mind


Like the sun behind the clouds

She comes and she goes

She’ll punch my heart

Until I explode

She is a mystery lady

No one know her name


We’ll dance and carry on

In the shadow of the moon

Like Cinderella at midnight

She has to leave very soon

She is a mystery lady


When she comes around

In a black silk dress

Does not need an introduction

She is higher than the rest



Shelter Me From The Storm


Every eye is violent

Every breath a gust

Every minute is measured

My heart turned to rust

Can’t bury the lightning

That I know I must

Every sound is your voice

Every face your bust


Shelter me from the storm

I cannot make it on my own

Without you in my life

I feel so empty and alone


Every pain is deep

Every rest is restless

Every thought of you

Always leaves me breathless

I do not want any number

You are the best

I felt your thunder

I do not want any one else


Not long ago

Felt like a king

I lost my heart

Fell from the throne

Like a hurricane

Shelter me from the storm



Sinning Is Easy


Grew up in a world

Of season and change

When we are growing up

So many thing seem strange

Took in the beauty

Of the mountains and range

Learned how to love

And how to be cruel

For every honest deed

That is done

Broke as many rules

Sinning is easy

It is nothing new

Looked at life

From a crystal ball

Whole flashed become me

In no time at all

Felt both same and pride

Low and ten feet tall

Sinning is easy

It is something we all do
