  • Sonnet #8 in Iambic Tetrameter – A White Hart

    What do we find ourselves inside? The Roman army’s moving north. A sacrifice the snake won’t die. The oblations smoke is rising fourth. Wish you could fall in love with me. The sacrament’s the gateless gate. I could turn you back from a stream Fulfilling or escaping fate. The Garden’s walls are Persian blue Aladdin’s […]

  • Sonnet #7 in Iambic Tetrameter – “Blue Mountain”

    I think I’ve figured out a way To flower dreams and rain down stars, To step on through the cameras frame Back to a life that’s always ours. I think I’m bathing here in rain. On this blue mountains’ lifesong slope. Eternal, never ending train, You feather birds and lift our hope. I write today […]

  • Sonnet #6 in Iambic Tetrameter

    I’ll follow you now through the Russian snow. For I’m afraid of nothing now you’re here. You’ve whisked away my driving need to know And blown a kiss that flies me past my fear. I want to see the moonlight fall on you. It feels like something’s rising from the woods. I live outside in […]

  • Sonnet #1 in Iambic Trimeter

    God knows we need to sleep. We’re rivers and birds, and trees. God knows we need to dream. Remember, we’re the breeze. I walk with you alone An empty street at night. Where magic things are born. Where dark creates the light. This thing I hold the most The dearest dream I have. I’ve learned […]
