Judgement sings a viscous carole,

A tested will is stronger yet.

Breathe strength too soon,

in glory’s lust

Yield to nothing…

and nothing trust.

Inhale the smoke,

the lung turned black.

Consume the mist from

your lovers mouth.

Laugh the song of

another morning come.

Man’s sacrifice is

his alone.


The evening passes and

the moon shatters all

of the glass in

summers door.

I don’t know who

I am or what

I’m becoming or

have become.

A steady beat follows

me and constantly

reminds me of

past days of long.

It haunts and sobers

me with a quickness

that numbs and

sends me falling…



When darkness falls

and all is done,

When the earth has stopped

on its axis spun,

When time is told I’ll be

But one…

Myself as friend and fiend

and lover…

In the chapel pews there

is no other.

When the satin underneath me

is carved in stone,

Then the ground beneath

will be my own.

(This sanctuary I’ll know

as hell)

And no visitor forth

will come,

When all is said and time

has won.


June 8, 1997 (Allan-Lake Ontario)

Let the dragon’s fire

pass your lips,

A thought not spoken

is never heard,

Breathe srengthe from words

The sword is sharp,

But pain is good

and the wound

will heal.

This dungeon in which

you’ve locked your heart,

Turns your blue eyes gray,

and steals your smile.

Ride on the wind…and

walk the clouds.

Escape the fury of

broken dreams.

Laugh the glory with

a fist of ice.

The nights red sky burns for you…


Together we stand, divided we fall..

I propose that at 7:00pm on Thursday 3/19/2020, everyone stop what you are doing and post a prayer, a verse, a song…whatever you feel helps you in troubled times to stay positive; regardless of your religion or background – post whatever comes from you, in your own language…from your heart. Let’s take a pause from the fear and chaos and take a moment, together, to reflect, to be grateful, to ask for healing for everyone in all countries and in all walks of life.
