Childhood memories escape from yesteryear
Fading as seasons pass from one to the next
Faces become words, become naught but feeling
And the perplexities of the brain devour
All that a man is can be found in his past lives
Most wrought with horrors never dared recited
Call me simple; curse me as of a shallow sex
But know I carry the weight of being human
I choose to disremember that which would destroy
Therefore I am and remain to be for a time longer
Scouring the stains, I push through the chemicals
Imprints formed by chance and by loathsome heartache
Innumerous possibilities dwindled into one oddity of a life
Channeled through byways long lost to recollection
Perhaps I am, indeed, lost to my wanderings
Chosen to be so, despite the screaming of the stop signs
Truth, may it be, perhaps isn't the path of which I am seeking
For life is more akin to a forest than a highway
God help me, I am so, so alone
Even amongst the crowd, we all stand as such
Blithe monuments to time, choice and age

To My Brother
My mother tended her first yield tender,
with slender fingers interlocked in a cradle
placed over her ripe stomach,
the calluses raised from farm labor
serving as little pillows for her son.
The first time she felt the quake underneath her flesh—
the little feet,
the kicking feet that would someday hold up a man—
she whispered his name,
Masahiro, Masahiro.
The son rising in the east to reflect her soul.
But dawn broke too early,
stretching its scarlet, wet arms over her underwear,
spitting defiance in a rush of water soaking her feet.
On the way to the hospital,
she clutched her splitting stomach,
screaming and pleading to the impatient babe,
Too soon, too soon!
But he was too much Icarus;
too eager to reach the light.
Finally, when the doctors extracted what was inside her,
she heard no sound of a baby boy crying,
only a beeping monitor tracking the beat of an incessant heart,
her heart—
Let me see him.
With cold hands,
the doctors presented

de feline way, .. grace and individuality inspire me. Working by hand appeals to me... the works here are not master pieces... but hope they are a journey to one ;-) ... Peace n grace!
Once again, a place i've been before...
hard to breathe,
thoughts run past single file,
barely pausing to cause a tremor,
gasping for air... but forcing a smile...

Warmth one wishes for,
warmth one had... for a fleeting instance,
trickles now only as droplets of memory..
deep inside, they had touched you,
but that was once...

The good book and all that,
Holy verses and flowing beards,
all at this moment,
merely diktat

The cynics will always whine,
cowards will fleece you fine,
shallow beauty in vain will infinitely pine...

But from here,
under the water pristine,
with one last breath..
and a smile....
the sun will always shine.
