The Journey to the West

Though we journey to the West We pray to the East More or less that's the way Each day begins and ends It’s a tale everyone ...

Birthday Poem for Marissa

As your birthday
Draws near I’m drawn
Into closest orbit
The very nub that
Speaks for our love
It starts as a smoldering
In the belly and picks up
In intensity as it proceeds
Out towards the extremities
It’s neither dampened
By second guessing
Nor banked by doubt
It’s the fire forever
Burning bright
A sure sign of
The plenitude
Of love that’s
Still to come
A perpetual flame
In fact like Moses
That’s just how
Fulsomely the
Berries adorn the
Pyracanthus bush
So who needs
To paint the town red
When we’ve got this
Ripe orange glory
That binds us together
In and out of garden beds
Growing entangled as one
