Everblue Soul

featured in the poetry forum February 10, 2017  :: 0 comments

A silhouette of teal despair
Witness to all we never were to be
and are
Witness to all we never were to do
and did

Eden’s pure spring tears
cleanse the angel-soul face
to be stained anew by
man’s circular devil deeds
a wounded muse

Everblue forever wanders
with pockets of inspiration
never depleted
casting notion and dreams among our lot
raining fine golden hope

editors note:

At last, some blues to sing; eyes open and in unison. – mh clay

Is and Vision

featured in the poetry forum November 10, 2016  :: 0 comments

Don’t mention memento
Is was there and needs no reminder
trinkets fog reality
only Is is
be with Is
embrace the nowness of you
nose to nose with self
pure you
scramble that past
throw it in that trash
with the kipper and kitsch
Is’s brother Vision
jealous as Caine because
only Is is

editors note:

There’s our challenge; to find the is in vision. – mh clay

That Rain

featured in the poetry forum February 19, 2016  :: 0 comments

crushing rain woke me
hours after midnight
each drop a flat note
pinged off this leaf or that stone
earth’s white noise
caused a natural claustrophobia
shrinking my mind space
inducing fear
knowing I can’t escape
until it wanes

editors note:

Reverse effect; occlusion over cleansing. Rain, go away! (We welcome Gregg to our crazy congress of Contributing Poets with this submission. Read more of his madness on his new page – check it out!) – mh clay

December Weeping Willow (2015 Paris)

December 15, 2015  :: 0 comments

sage graceful composed
wistful for tranquil joyous years
streaming green tears of reverie
for the return of good will
and respect for all beliefs
evening moonlight and stars
ease the pain of observing
waxing terror and mistrust
a cosmic peacebreeze magnifies hope
igniting the promise of harmony among all humans

editors note:

In the face of current dissonances, let that peacebreeze blow. Amen. – mh clay

Do the Moon

Youth’s pre-love peace
Exited at light speed
Leaving a gutty paradise
Sizzling my heart as summer sand on bare feet
love emerged as my life emperor
and drove the me I became

editors note:

Love’s challenge, capricious queen; to be gutty while not being gutted. – mh clay
