Rise Of The Moonbird

LURE OF THE BANCHEES

Muses In A Hawthorne Tree

HAZY MOON DREAMS

WELLSPRINGS OF BLUE VELVET



Mermaids In Mesmerize And Cage

WHITE DOVE HEAVEN BOUND

PERSON ROBBER

Cleopatra Steps

Healing Drops

JUST ON PAUSE

TRAPEZE POSES IN AIR

WHEN WE PICKED DAISIES

BRIEF BEAUTY

LOVE IN OCEANS BLUE

LET HIM GO TO ANOTHER LIGHT

WINTER FROST ON MY ASPHALT

TO A REUNION WITH HELL'S ANGELS

HIS SOUND

THE FLASH OF YOUR SMILE

SACRIFICES OF HEART

A CHANCE OF SUN

WAITING FOR THE MISSING HALF

A MOON LIKE THIS

CAPTIVE TO A MIRROR WORLD

THE MAGIC IN YOUR MUSIC

LETTER TO MY BRIGHTEST STAR

WHAT I LOVED ABOUT YOU MOST

UNEXPECTED ENDING

HEAVENLY GAZES GHAZAL

WHERE YOUR HEART IS CARRIED

WHAT ABOUT INSTANT CHEMISTRY?

For Love Of The Morning News

How many days have I awakened
to find your face hidden by the Morning News,
your fingers blackened by its ink.

You are engrossed with the details
of a news story; yet I sit across from you
with worry lines crinkling the folds of my eyes.
Haven't you noticed tears sliding down my face,
beading up on the top of our butcher-block table?

The Morning News is your intimate companion,
your early morning lover.  Is it a better lover
than me?  I watch you caress it
with your fingers, nuzzle it against your cheek  
while I hunger for one glance, for one word.

One of these days,
you might find yourself discarded
like the crumpled pages of an old newspaper,
tossed away like yesterday's stories.
