Advice to the Ancients [Notebook]

There are half-measures
That shine.

Build on this
When words
Call to you.

Expand from these small things,
Because, life awaits.

Every word
May be important

In their place.

Today was a pretty special day for me:

I've completed a 2nd book of poetry, a companion volume to "The Wind Shall Hear my Words..." [entitled: "...and, The Stars will speak them."]. The book includes some of the poems that have been posted here, as well as some that have gone unpublished.

I hope to send the finished manuscript to the publisher on October 9th, 2009.

As I always say, "onward & upward."

In the other room,

a piano, softly, plays.


I'm watching the clouds now;

shifting shapes,


drifting along,

with my thoughts...

...Your fingers, on the keys,

brush the elements:

a body of motion,

you've seemed.

to me.


As clement,

is this beauty,

a touch, pierces the heart.

The softness of skin, lingers,

in each subtle touch

of melody...

...and, You are here,..

..but not.


I'll open up myself,

to Nature,

and, Time's

inclement moments.


We'll embrace the clouds

this evening;

sharing, each stroke;

each, swept hands, brush.



as I linger here,

half-way to you

and the skies blessings;

Like some love-struck field-hand,

The light, at least, for now, my Love,

has settled


the Clouds.
