' Emeralds And Black Diamonds...

Lie down lass, with me, in sage green meadows
Your blouse flouncing open, in the teasing breeze
The meadows, feel so cotton, this time of year
Come lay beside me, and sense my desires.

I'm taking a walk to the cemetery this morning,
be back before noontime for crumpets and tea.
I have two friends who died not so long ago;
they were brothers, treated me the same.

' Black Autumn { For My Silent Mentor Edgar Allan Poe}...

Comes the cold, black, Death of Autumn,
harbouring its' pique on naked limb;
stirring damp, feral winds
to the hawking, stalking,

' Movement In Black

Simon makes it all come together, perfectly,
placing antiques 'n curio's on dusted black shelves,
window-sil ledges with geometric widgets,
navigating his world, by touch, and by texture.

The Light Of Deity...

Where were you when the Maple trees died?
Where were you when their leaves fell and dried?
Where were you when Nature's Mother's just sighed,
With a wink and smile to Autunns beguile.

''The Art of Poetry is read by the Human Eye, however it's full measured value may only be realized through the pictorial aura of the Mind's Third Eye''.

A Writer and a Poet are as similar in craftsmanship as a sketcher and a painter. Both are Artist's in their own right and field of expertise, but in reality the only nexus that exists between the two is a canvass and a Theme. ~FjR~

This visit is to pay tribute to the tomb of masterpiece ‘A Succinct Symmetrical Sex Story’. It’s not a poem but Michelangelo’s explanation as to how a fabric cast in stone can exude warmth and tenderness. It’s a narration of how the moment long space between lovers becomes a monument.

Your Friend 24 December 2009

I know you. You are a man of honor and integrity You are a true and loyal friend. You love your family and protect them as a lion to her cubs. Your Irish temper is fierce when you think you or yours have been slighted. You are quick to render help to those in need and you are not judgmental. You take great pride in your written work as well you should...for you are one of the finest at your craft. You are a person I am proud to call a friend. I wish for you, health, happiness, love and at some point, a publishing deal-which you truly deserve. Happy holidays. Good health and long life

Saw you name on another page where you said the work was 'stunning' etc. The comment was quite extensive and really true to the mark from beginning to end. That said, let me mention I have read much of you work and I find it, in your own words, stunning! In reading many of your poems I was obliged to rate them at least a ten! I have saved some of your poems on my 'must read list.' You are a fabulous maker of the written word and It will be my pleasure to pass you link along to my friends.
