Tender Fingers of Night
The day yearns for night My long day's journey blends into dusk I walk into sunsets of red and orange From the dark I look up at the twinkling heavenly canvas Speckled moonlight falls on the lake I envy the swaying trees moved by warm winds I hear cricket symphonies Glens and rivers slow to listen Passionate wild roses offer a whiff of Eden I sense the longing of the lavender wildflowers to be told "you are captivating, you are amazing" The mosaic of gentle stones glide under my feet The cosmos whispers that Only divine love escapes from black holes These are pillows for the heart As I rest on the earth Surrounded by a cathedral of peaks In a canyon of glory cut by flowing waters of grace These are deeper than reality I cannot really know them

Lazy Afternoon
You say, There is no better way To spend a Saturday afternoon, Than having your back rubbed By artist's hands. As I massage and knead Your already limber muscles, I notice streaks of raw umber And cadmium red paint On my busy fingers, And wonder If you are grateful, I was not making pottery Instead.

Evening Unsweet Evening
Sweet sojourns to night sleep And twisted argyle dreams Morbid masticities Appearing in constant streams Unconscious choking night sweat Awakening in fright Evening unsweet evening And dark and scary night
