POEM 179: Eyes
her eyes beams fireflies
fluttering in empty belly
illuminating

Endy, unaware
I admired her vain mystery
hid behind pink clouds
POEM 181: Black Boy
there is a black boy
with red earth in his boy palm
molding it into dreams
POEM 182: Endy II
silvery, like the moon
floating by the orange sun
keeping warm, my dark.

with fervor, she moans
tears that singe her forlorn face
leaving trails of hurt

you’re crescent beauty,
daily I sing you’re rouhi
Ya ‘Aburnee forever.

to all inviting, calls
for warmth and safety, victuals
home is everything

Spring azure allure,
drinking in adulation
but clouds hid it all

I was in the flame,
heaven was cold and frozen
I died peacefully

A misty morning –
lust in the air, Eve unaware
one bite and man fell
POEM 189: Peace
water runs underneath
dolphins swimming with the current
life snail moving along

Parched throat and sprained soles,
Scorching sun rays, baked words
poetry sizzling still
