LIQUID THOUGHT  10/27/05 In the sequenced hours of liquid thought all rise against the powers of political intent.All rise to peer through the lattice work of lies, in the sunlight and darkness of mixed dreams. In the dens of delusion the gilded garter adorns the supple thigh, as a drunken kiss from lipsticked lips. Faces …

There is a place few of us will ever discover . I am writing from it. I am light years away from earth. The light and warmth and enchantment are beyond earthly description, and exists within me, and I believe it exists in all of us, if we close our eyes to see. I am …

Refugee of Fall (poem)

  A Refugee of Fall runs against the wind of time, dragging dead leaves and trees and flowers into the infernos of man made fires. A vacant bench under fallen leaves, oblivious to weather or time, is centered in the a universe as part of the seasons. Refugees of Fall enter the portals of the …

A Dog Poem

  When my dog died I felt that I lost a part of me rather than a friend. My dog was an extension of me. He walked with me, and talked with me. He ate with me and sometimes he would sleep with me. He waited for me to come home. He slept soundly on …

The After Hours of Midnight

after midnight

The after hours of midnight, bring madness and sorrow to surround sanity. I hear the voices of those passed on and their pleas for justice against others’ deceptions. In the after hours of midnight the world is dark and blind and tears and suffering are not seen. L.A.Steel Share

The Lost Spirit of Hope

How long must we despair in the poverty of our nation’s soul, before we call upon the spirit of hope? On the back streets of the United States poverty is disguised and ignored by local,state and federal government. The poor, sick and homeless are voiceless. Their screams are masked by sirens as they are taken …

“Most Persons Do Not See The Sun”

The sudden dryness of the air startles the arid thoughts of loss, sadness and remorse. The regret of actions taken or not rushes over the desert mind as a flash flood of tears. The madness of loneliness becomes the death knell in the final scream. “Most persons do not see the Sun.” They only see …

Out of the Wastelands


In the Wastelands the bright sun blinds the mad beast raging in the windswept desert of the mind. Left to its own demise the beast carries a torch of passion that tortures him with fire filled days of magnetic vice, that steals all traces of his soul. Near the borderland of madness the beast drags …

Nov 24 2013


I can’t remember their faces or why I should remember them. I remember they were once close to me, like a family,but if they were how could I forget them? Their entire existence is fading from my memory. Who or what they were or are I can no longer see. They are faceless and nameless …

Nov 20 2013


In my darkest hour I ignored the sirens, and transcended reality into a deep sleep. I fell into darkness, that twisted my soul. I saw my face trying to escape my gaze. I fell and had to crawl. The clumsiness of my life overwhelmed the spiral speed of decent, and my mind crashed into oblivion. …

Stone Wall (A Poem)

Hard and impenetrable, too tall to look over, too long to go around, too narrow to walk on. Barren and cold, worn and old, standing against winds enduring the seasons. A stone wall creates a boundary, to separate people and plots of land, and is a means of defense. A stone wall is an illusion …

A Tall Ship Tied To A Dock

A tall ship tied to a dock is ready to go to sea, but is not free. Held back and restrained to prevent it from drifting, by a weak rope of resistance. Vulnerable to strong winds, that dash it against the dock until the winds stop. A giant of shipbuilders’ ingenuity, and Leviathan of the …

Hate for politicians is a common human trait. Patriots hate traitors. Traitors hate patriots. There is nothing real in the political game, other than the death and destruction of war. There is treasure and power to be won and lost but nothing of value to be gained. There is a point I want to make, …

Running Brook

A running brook continues its course in daylight, moonlight and darkness. The cold water rushes over stones as they embed or roll with the current. The brook sings the songs of the earth, songs of anger, passion, love and compassion. Heavy rain or drought effect its depth and speed, as it moves onward through the …

Summer Storm (A Poem)

    The skies turned green. The humidity increased. My arms became sticky against the leather chair. The wet cotton of my shirt clung against my skin. The fan blew moist air. A cool shower relieved me for a moment, until I wiped off and began to sweat again. I remembered the feeling of cold winter winds, and cool autumn breezes, …

November Snow

November Snow 11/27/12 It is snowing this morning. The day is cold and gray, caught somewhere between dimensions. My thoughts are in a heavy snowfall, where words fall silently, then melt on the page. I remember walking at dawn in New York City, one November long ago. The street was deserted, dark and gray, and …

Breathing of the Bones

Lost lives breathe the air of time beneath the blue sky of ambition. Bones breathe memories and skulls emptied of thoughts bask in sunlight. Where have the lost generations gone? Pleiadians embark on journeys into darkness lighting the way for sojourners to follow. One night I will see their light at the end of Death’s …
