Eve Sculpted Chalice

Eve Sculpted Chalice

I am fire, I am air
Eve sculpted chalice
Artistry encrusted in celestial jewels
An intoxicating espial beguiling for eternity
In every morning light I dazzle
In the beaming rays of the sun’s journey
Upwards into heaven’s azure skies
My globe refracts a prisms spectrum
Playing gently in morning breeze
Before watering my thirsty host
I am every dew drop
That welcomes in the morning air

Brown Wren Sentential

March 22, 2012

Brown Wren Sentential


I peer through the globe that is my window

  To watch the shower of fleecy snow

Spun into a blanket upon natures spindle

A white coverlet setting the landscape aglow


The craving comes from out of nowhere

For a fat cigar and a glass of rum

Whilst fishing from my rickedy pier that meanders

  Lazily swaying with each swamp breath across the run


The engaging vision reluctantly flees

Leaving a pirating catfish leaping to catch a bluefly

As a shadowy muddled quiver of dread impedes

  I return to my window and the view outside


A brown wren sentential is standing watch

  Amongst the icy twigs in my sleeping garden

Quietly patient clinched firm its clout

I wished for, but heard not its sweet warbling anthem


What I wonder does it defend; I search the horizon

Thoroughly perusing all four points of the compass

Find a frolicking family of squirrels on a forage mission

So carefree leaping pine branches in an effervescent dance


Far south a rich green and tenebrous yellow river drifts past

  High above two house wrens dip and expose flashing yellow tails

  Their rich bubbly chorus an angelic welcome blest

Calling the hidden fish as men cast rods of baited appeal


They’re quick to dart for the rich banquet of flies

That thrive in the swamps languid environs

Not so the bleak statue so still under white swirling sky

The marble cairns gone silently into the heavens
