Sonnet 340 (Final Winter) I watch as leaves from Arbor safety fall Once swathed in summer breaths of cold now blast Their brilliant shades can’t breach the nighttime pall What seemed so long, in truth, can never last. And, so, I saw forever in a leaf Before its cradle of tranquility And learned our life’s own season is as brief While Heaven did beckon only distantly. And though the leaf did fall, the tree stood still  What fragile showed, to me, a higher plane We are like leaves...

Final Scene I was asked to write about humanity And the philandering philosophy of peace But, not enough to look around to see My Iife is given too short a lease. Wiser minds spanning this world's brief time Were better prepared to answer And, yet, theirs are not found in any rhyme Because our actions these best deliver. But, it was asked of this poet to use this page And here on what stirs us most must Iive I say we all play our parts on a cosmic stage Where our roles the fina...

  The Promise of Peace Is it good or evil that our end will record Is man good or his promise spoiled? Is goodness in our heart by its own accord Or by evil's hand our nature soiled? How else ever find, on Earth, peace? First, learn what in our nature is true  As long as these battles never cease Humanity and peace an unlikely brew. How many martyrs to our higher selves known That to the greatest injustices fought? By such sacrifice the seeds of goodness sown And the hope of...

I Saw a Rose Is saw a Rose as I was walking one Spring day Winter's radiant rebuttal flowering so regally Like the beauty you brought my way Knowing after the coldest days you came to me. However, soon the Rose's petals start to fall Such glory cannot long live What I thought lasting nature's rule befall Not long does life such delight give. And how fleeting this Rose I should have realized What I held dearest would soon go It does not matter how much it is prized Too quickly w...

Sonnet 339 (Time's Hand) And soon the steely hand of Time will come To coldly grasp the one who makes life sweet Now like a winter tree whose leaves succumb My life a barren place where once complete. The honeyed melodies that birds once taught Will strike the chords of loneliness in me The blissful warmth the morning sun once brought May still rise high but darkness all I'll see. Where once we lay before the ocean's shore And as we kissed the waves did gently sigh These fawning...

Endless Love  You may leave me but your love can never let go  Love does not bow to the cold whims of Time  For as soon as I depart, here, to your arms go And I will abandon all my sorrow in this rhyme.  This world in all its vastness, still, a fleeting thing  And all that consumes it, one day, will die It only truly lives with the joy you bring A joy I find in whatever place, with you, I lie.  I realize that all life is but granted a lease That, here born, will ultimately expi...

How Much Treasured  So, that life is short we all know  But this does not lessen its impact Our faith tells us there is someplace else to go But, that you will not be here a fact. Now I learn that your lease here soon expire And your debtor your time here will collect  But forfeiting this also takes my desire I would have other terms that I could select . But, too late now, the judgment has come  As I look at you, I must face this fact That to your mortality will soon succumb  ...

"Having worked very closely with The X Stream Network I'm delighted that I've been given the opportunity to be an exponent of the eclectic work I have heard on this amazing radio station and social music site. The idea of curating a series of sampler albums that brings new blood to a wider audience is an amazing opportunity for me. I always loved working along side innovative artists who push the artistic envelope, which is why working with groups such as The Fall and the Specials and of course ...

Don't Go  Oh, don't go, but, wait you are not here I guess in my heart you never leave Though in this world you don't appear Not seeing you, only left to grieve.  Don't go, honey,  let my dreams be Or else in them please let me see your face If here such beauty I cannot see It does not matter in what realm you embrace.  Can you please stay around long enough to hold And not let my imagination your absence cover? Now you give what the best love stories have told  I will sacrific...

Resolved  What is love if you can't hold it near? Like a flame that burns too hot to touch  So, what does it matter if you're not here? When I can't have what I want so much.  What use is longing if what I wish cannot be? Like that distant star that will never be near And never be satisfied unless you're next to me  A star's mystery only solved when you are here.  Yet, I have to accept your love still more distant  That only in my dreams can appear as real For though I can say there is only o...

It is Not the Night  It is not the night whose solitude puts me to sleep Where its dreams the landscape of our love While in your arms this world's promises keep Nothing more peaceful your presence does prove.  It is not the morning gently unfolding to the day  Where in its breadth our romance finds its ground  But only complete when it is under your sway Nothing more boundless than where you are found.  It is not this world, Heaven's child, my life most gives Born of a spiritual...
