Remembering You

Remembering You

A ghostly flower blooming and withering,
(or blot) blinking with colors that strain to brightness,
to equal those of what were seen before;
fragments, with the music or plain utterances
attempting to be as loud (or as soft)
as what they really were...

But all in vain.

Blurred and ephemeral. Just for a haunting and fleeting...
Many times an unexpected visitor,
an intruder, inside...

What is complete and constant is that depressing spirit:

Void of form and details, yet lingering, encumbering,
dragging. Punctuated, highlighted,
by the thief that intermittently
gives, curses, and leaves

with a piece.

Jimi's Toast

Jimi's Toast


Sapphire stars of

red diamond glints;

consecrated space

gravely detached.


Flowing long cape

of a crushed velvet

shoes tap in time

dusty dark rooms.

Despised rainbows

search the heavens;

drenched in skittles,

color palette ablaze.

Desperately shattered

feathered and flattered;

needles to the soul;

I serenade the stars.

Purple Haze echoes,

off the moons of Mars;

shred the raucous guitar

toast to the Watchtower.
