My stomach leaps
My mind is restless from no sleep
The heart quickens
Its steps to you
Always out of reach…


Madame Butterfly

One day you’ll wash upon my shore 

 And smile and walk up as if you were here just  yesterday 

We will go back to where we left off 

talking about the early summer rains or 

late sun of June 

And you’ll say you missed me even though you never really left me.  

Midnight Rain

Rain at Night

Today I am lonely


I do not have a thought in my mind


but for my lonesomeness


I crave a fellow soul


I thirst for sweet passion


I am lonely today


and I act as a dead poet would


I weep at cherished memories


I sob at moments lost


I want to walk in midnight rain


let it soak me


let it fill


my empty heart.


I am lonely today


I curse life and wish to die


if only I never dreamed,






Oh cruel life you may walk past me,


But do not look back at the shadow you missed


for I no more need you


than a  Brahman needs proof of God.


I am alone today


But the only desired midnight rain falls


from my short-sighted eyes.

Scribbling of an old spinster

Children laugh too loud

The air is musty outside 

New cookies make me gassy 

My knees ache

I think I have a heart murmur…

That container would be great for…

The neighbors dog barks all night

I should get a cat to keep me company…

On second thought I don’t like cats…

Oh here we go again…

I hate when the sun comes up so suddenly on you, 

seems sneaky somehow…
