Lonnie Hicks Poems
Come closer; I need to feel your body
If I could take the world into my world; If I could be God-like what would I do
The Dreamer's Poet
Dreamers dream dreaming that all their dreams are dreams; and is reality then multiple-shaped
An Icicle Kiss
'I am the Winter Flower' she said 'the opposite of the Summer Ones.'
A River Flows
Where does the river flow if not to you? How deep its depths
A Killer Word
Strewn on the ground were the nouns; the gerunds and the active verbs,
We are trapped Beauty Eyed in beholder's gaze,
A Tub Of Potatoes
My grandmother used to say don't marry for money but stay open-minded.
The Flask Of Time
There is a single leaf flying in this my autumn gloaming, a leaf fluttering light as if being orchestrated
A Handkerchief Surrenders
If I can but see those reaching arms before me, feel flat against my chest
Soul Violence-Tina's Story
I am Violences' Victim which scarred my soul slammed it down to earthly hell
The problem is metaphoric; I live inside lines which only approximate but do not satisfy.
A Soul Kissed
Oh, to be soul-kissed the deep kiss; mouth brushing past parted lips.
The Gospel According To Lilith- Chapters...
Chapter 7 So, it was that the rein of Lucifer and Lilith began on Earth and they, with their fallen angels, began the work of making hospitable their environs. There was no reshaping the Earth to make of it a paradise—Lord had quietly rebuffed their efforts to do this, allowing only minor changes to the terrain, forcing the group to hard labor for the simplest gains. Water was had from geyser steam and from these the group could bathe. Small algae plants grew even in the lava beds and from them soups and broths were made. Evolutionarily the time passing was eons on Earth and Lucifer, Lilith and the hosts saw the Earth slowly begin to support life, evolving from simpler life forms to higher ones. This was a welcome development for it made life much easier because the food supply became more plentiful for the many hosts.
I lie on the bed
from that love which penetrates
trying to decide if it is satisfaction
or slow-crawling humiliation.
Has this been my sacrifice,
