May good things come to you,
as your heart in love,
it grows strong,
strong in the love you know I have for you,
love that runs gently like a newborne fawn.

angel of my hearts passing into twilight's eve each day,
may the blessings of fulfilled and happy life,
may they always with you stay.
I call the being of lapis lazuli,
Jedidiah beloved of The Lord
Archaic sage…sanctifying hallows
Exoteric King of Ophir whispers through you still,
as we walk with the mandarin of hope…

diligently watching me network his wares
as I walk across creaking wooden floors,
I gesture to a woman to follow me.
there is something I want her to see,
something she might be…Continue

Scholars, lovers, and the lonely-hearted all know poetry in their own way and all have their own very lovely relationships with it. But who have a more passionate relationship with poetry than poets themselves? These quotes are presented in honor of their voices and their inspiring dedication to "the flower of language."
“If there were no poetry on any day in the world, poetry would be invented that day. For there would be…Continue

You are the man newly arriving
at history’s worm-ravaged door,
the woman whose shadows are salves
upon the bleeding breasts of the earth,…

Once a year we were pilgrims driving from Atlanta
to Waycross where my brother and…

B.C.: With his brother’s blood wet on his hands,
Cain ran vomiting future sorrows of man.
Petals of gold cloud
swirled bright eternal letters
too soon forgotten.
2575-2467 B.C.: Immersed in themes of an unfolding story,
Egypt’s Fourth Dynasty blazed pyramids of glory.
Before time or space,…
