Scattered Leaves

Posted on in New Poems | 0 comments

  Steady moments blanketed on a canvas of time, fallen are the memories now scattered across sidewalks where the footprints of childhood once rhymed.   We used to play back then, when solid trees Stood tall, but now only their leaves now lay.  The beauty of innocence, now forgotten, once was the portrait of a […]

Upon The Thoughts Of My Demise

Posted on in Poetry: Tears Of A Poet | 0 comments

It is upon the thought of my demise that I wonder if the memory of me shall wake into tomorrow’s sunrise or will I fade into the distant echoes of what once was — barely to be recognized. All I hope is the flowers laid down upon my life will stay fresh and beautiful in […]

Born & Raised

Born & Raised

  So young were the days we dreamed.   Innocent filtered streets were so inspired – as the growth of our minds never tired.   We grew up here, born & raised; in the energy of a city where so many memories were saved.  Laughter envied skies always seemed to overshadow days filed with clouds […]

Someone To Love Me

Posted on in Love Poems | 0 comments

For so long I’ve searched for someone to see me—someone to look deep beyond these eyes and capture the true meaning of me; someone who can trace the true beauty of my heart and recognize the freedom in which I feel. I want someone who doesn’t need me to change to fulfill their own vision […]

  California dreamin’, slight breeze streamin’ through the ocean waves of the Pacific.           And I am feeling terrific as I study the light almond flavored sand and the smooth San Diego air caresses the back of my hand.  I am just close enough to feel the slight spray of the ocean’s blue dripping off the […]

Sometimes I Cry

Crying Black Man

My sadness beats steadily against the noise of silent eyes who look through my heart.   I stand still in the middle of a circle of invisibility staring at empty walls full of shadows;     shadows hidden behind a perspiration of smiles pretending to be my friends but all the while they laugh at […]

Like A Bird Without Wings

Like a bird without wings

Sometimes I feel like a bird without wings, unable to fly; no strength to glide, no way to escape, emotions hidden inside. Like a bird I was born to soar and fly through the winds of challenge. I was born to spread my wings and rise to the greatest of altitude accelerating through the skies […]

What Happened In Harlem

Posted on in Poetry: A Crack In the Sidewalk | 0 comments

  I woke up one time in the 1920’s.  A slight drool tickled my chin as it dripped down on the current edition of “The Crisis”.  I was a long way from home and along way from my time as I sat at a small table off to the side   in a little Blues […]

Being Boston

Being Boston

    We were Boston – on a damp day in May we made our way from Fenway Park through the crowded excitement of Yawkey Way,   we traveled through the energy of the strong, hearts saddened by recent tragedy yet united as one through the hearts of a city proud   We marched through […]

Somewhere a poet is crying because he can I’ve traveled to many places in this world without leaving the destination of my front window.  There are days I sit and allow my mind to explore and reach out in a transpiration of thought.  I search for new views and interpretations in a world where everyone […]
