Crimson Ink

I respond to the beats
deferent
the pulse of life carries
oxygen
to
organs
limbs
finger tips
and
toes

when my pounding heart
echoes
the movements of my soul
my poised pen
forms
words
in
crimson
ink
flow

Kiss

lips kiss in embouchure

fingers dance over open holes

the French Flute sings

Imagine

imagine ~

if the obese worm
of bigotry
could be contained
in a chrysalis
there
forced to change
or starving die
might emerge
life’s
liberated
butterfly

Bloom

then danced,
laughing blossom
dressed in vivid petals
she blushed against the summer air
held nectar in pool, intoxicating
invited winged friend for deep drink
until both, satisfied
bathed in the light
then danced

Cherita #12

time springs forward

children play
in the newly thawed earth

Mother Nature observes
their dirty paws and fur
and sends the April rains

Brush Strokes

brush strokes
press wet color
onto open surface
thirsty canvas sips the pigment
as liquid hue drips from the long bristles
painting in living color, thick
intoxicating drink
through sinuous
brush strokes
