Frank James Ryan Jr...fjr Poems

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.

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

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.

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.

At Evers Creek, behind the redwood barn,
a mystery still travels on by near and far,
like the rush and rip of the Creeks dark hole,
as it did the night it swallowed twelve Souls;

I watch you as you sleep,
Feel a warming breeze pass your cold, still lips;
An essence of florals, and my eyes affix,
On the bleeding heart draped upon your silk, blue gown.

When Mirrors Cross Your Eyes

What has happened to you?

_________Author's Prologue____________

Originally written for my (then) 12 year old daughter
on her challenge for me to write a rhyming poem in

In this Autumn of the year ther' be image
Divinité illustrés....Oui, l'utopie du Poète.
Flecks and shades, a bleeding hued spray
Of Summer's closure...'cross the causway

I was only fifteen,
I still remember her words
that tore through my Heart,
ostensibly for light years,

Ther' be an air of sensuality, to th' tilting of o'Rose,
young stems curving they maturate
as to support th' moist blossom of their better half
in glorious rapture on th' crest...of a fresh new day.

Time, is not a reversible consequence of Life,
For if it were, we would never, soldier forward.
And, that would greatly stunt our opportunities
To maximize our virtues....galvanize our fortes,

There be no boundaries in Love,

for it's dimensions are infinite

I'm Remembering the day's
we'd eat black and white cookies,
the size of pie-plates,
my best friend and me,

Two Persian Cats on window sill,

Never bored nor get their fill

The word is they found you dead last night,
alone.....on the porch of your Eastside digs,
a warm Crème de Cacao beside a hardbound
of Truman Capote's 'Portraits and Observations'.

In seperate worlds, they breathe now;
so sad, these worlds, like coffins,
each silent to the other,
yet life be ever present,

Whistle of wind across the ear
of a man on a distant hill,
awaiting Father MacGarrity's
final blessing of water.

Contemporary Haiku with the employment of
Traditional Haikus syllabic requirement.

The Best Poem Of Frank James Ryan Jr...fjr

' 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.

Open field, honeysuckle....arouses my yen
For passion 'neath th' sparkle by th' mid-noon sun
No clouds abide our scape of choice to pleasure
So, again I ask you lass, come lay beside me.

Come close, love, as these hungry emerald eyes
Beg to stare into your warm, black diamond eyes
Take my hand in bond, I assure you, my lov',
That emeralds and diamonds never fade away.

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

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.

Frank James Ryan Jr...fjr Quotes

''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~
