The Fisherman and the Mermaid

 

The river chuckled
full of joyful cherubs, and the maples
bent close to hear
the whispers and gossip
of family and friends as tenders prepared the beer. Continue reading

Cheerful Turtle

My Love From Cotulla
for my wife Mary on her birthday 4/7/17

I love the breeze
that brings me kisses
soft lipped and rose scented
all the way from Cotulla, Texas. I love her whisper
and warm sweet breath, I love her tender

Excerpt from THE LOVE TREE:

WHERE THE WAVES BREAK

You take me
where the waves break,
where the church bells toll,
where the gulls squawk
and the thunder claps roll.

You take me
to the ship’s stern,
to the storm’s red eye,
to the dog’s bark,
and the wind swept sky.

You take me
from the dark hour,
from the hammer’s head,
from the cold sweats,
and the tempest’s bed.

You take me
like a fresh breath
with a twinkle eye,
with your chin up
and your softest sigh,
you take me—
you take me
In.
