Four Tiptoe Senryu


Alan Bean's "Tiptoeing on the Ocean of Storms" (acrylic on masonite)

Four Tiptoe Senryu

who dared to tiptoe
on the rugged lunar plains
as we gaped in awe

when you have migranes
count twenty tiptoing sheep
pounding ceases

all is so quiet
tiptoe when the sun begins
sleeping roommates

singing the blues
tiptoing though their stories
i live their passion

Triolet VI


Love Potion Painting by Koloman Moser 1915

Triolet VI

As millennia expire,
We cannot say we’re one.
My faithful soul does tire,
As millennia expire.
We do not lose desire:
Our passion is over done
As millennia. Expire
We cannot. Say we’re one.

The Kiss


Der Kuss By Gustav Klimt

The Kiss

there is someone who
at initial sighting

immediate knowledge
manifests: lifetimes

have been shared
between the two.

an urge drives
to pounce upon

this darling,
this warrior

who has reappeared
in this passing life.

strangers hesitate.
a moment, another

moment, then,
with telesthesia,

you take each other
as if you are owned.

the brain violently churns
a torrent of serotonin.

that kiss has been since
you two were torn asunder.

then all that can exist
is primordial flash.
