While Passing Someone's Garden

The scent of Jasmine

calls me back,

to her honeyed locks

tumbling over my cheeks,

as the petals of her lips,

embraced my fondest dreams.

Thus I pause at this shrub

inhaling the intoxicating

aroma of what was first love.



Equinox On My Heart's Door.

Your limbs are barren now,
I have been blown away
by the bitter break
of your shedding me.

Tumbling in blurs
of what was love's
most vibrant colors.

Dying in mid-flight,
grounded in reality,
raked over
smouldering coals
and consumed.



Weeding Through What's Past.

She was my


way back in the "Summer Of Sixty-seven."
Her golden hair tousled like a mane,
over ruby lips pursed for our first kiss.
Fresh like the dew on a pink rose,
she graced me with dreams
I had never known.

Danielle, my girl-next-door

a flower amidst the weeds

of the projects in which I languished.

I think of her whenever spring

graces my lawn with sun yellow bursts ,

and I wonder whose thirsty garden

she's adding beauty to now.
