HELLO CANCER


LET’S DANCE!

Did you see sunset burn
throughout the sky,
a crimson crucifix
to portend my descent?
Think not.

Did you phrophecy
as your eyesight grew dim,
Should Odin awaken?
and heed your call?

Did you fantasize a charm
to neuter the savage beast
while you stood chained at the feasting hour in man-made frocks?

What? That bear and wolf
would lay at your bound feet
their teeth and claws?

Did your faith waiver, yet fail
¹as your heartbeat froze
begging faint dawn to execute
it’s icy thaw?

Did you spit your prayers
to four cornered winds,
to keep your faith fulfilled
whispered downward hallelujahs ?

And what of the Thunder God?
Did you bring gifts enough
to move his hand o’er his fleet
calming seas, bloodied seas
that you might retreat?

Oh precious.faithful servant, come!
God’s are moved, your battle’s won!
Tears of Love now wash you clean!
no battles here left chance
Let’s pray the tumors gone!

Soooooo:
– let’s dance!
Put on your red shoes
and dance the blues.
lets dance!

Nature’s Aria



Image
“Singin’ In The Rain Forest” by Lady Di

Receive the sibilant symphony
of sunset’s twilight serenade –
A cacophony of chirping crickets,
and grass-green geckos cheeping
within frost-flecked ferns
and flower-flocked foliage.
The shrill shriek of the osprey
slices the silence of the summer sky
beneath the bass beat of barnyard owls
hoot-hooting hallowed hallelujahs
in consonance with coyotes chanting
their mournful moonlight wail.
Dissonant and chaotic,
harmonic and serene,
nature’s love songs echoing
across gurgling moss-banked streams
against granite-faced mountains
silhouetted sentinels standing
behind the moon-misted
shroud of the falling night
