    Crocuses and daffodils are having a hard April. The early frost and late snow stunted their growth. Yellow and white rows of waving daffodils do not adorn my garden this year.   As I looked at the snow on rows of unbloomed flowers I noticed three white and two yellow daffodils and one white …

    I parked on River Road, overlooking the water, It was night, the river was flowing under the recent snowfall. I slept in a quilt, under my closed skylight.   I listened to rock and. roll on the radio. The full moon showed blindingly through my windshield, reflecting against the silver hood.   L.A. Steel …

  I Never Knew Your Name      (written in 1996)   I met you in the silence as we spoke in whispers wondering our next reply.   The unearthed medallion showed its magic as your vision appeared.   You were the wonder in my trance like stare of hallucinogenic love.   Seldom in the …

Throwing Out Old Suits and Ties and Things


  I’ve been throwing out things all day, now I’m nearly done. I threw out everything I never want to see again. I was hanging on to clothes and books and outdated ties,(I haven’t worn a tie since 1994) ties are phallic symbols, I had a lot of ties. I’m glad those tie days are …

Reclusive   I am somewhere between wonder and reason, laughing at the sunshine and the blue sky of this morning, thankful I can enjoy them.   All creators create their creations by hearing them or seeing them, and receiving them, from the divine mind, that navigates the winds of time.   L.A.

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 …

IMPRISONED, 10/27/08 Within the boundaries of the physical world the three dimensional limits bind the human spirit. The spirit breathes with rhythmic motion and listens to earth bound sounds. It is a prisoner of memory, fear and forgetfulness. The stars move subtly to dazzle the observer of the night sky. Bathed in mist and moonlight …

Thinking of you

I thought of you today, when the sunlight in the window shone through. “You were destined to meet.” said the Oracle of Delphi. She sang to me in the sun filled room, as I entered her delirium, and altered my destiny.   L.A.  Steel   Share

Lost World of Yesterday

In the lost world of yesterday I wander through partial memories, where no one can verify my actions. I remember an aging fool running, grinning and fumbling papers and pads, believing he was important, making greater fools laugh. The late April air is still cold, as green shoots point upward the sun teases them from …

Word Rain

In the loss of restrictions is the bounty of freedom and thinking and philosophy under the mainstay of finite solutions, to the proxy of education. Fill in the blanks of emptiness and falsehoods until the wells of fresh thoughts are springing forth into fountains. Experience the boldness of believers who isolate the words of wonder …

Winter Tree

    Limbs as arms and legs of men hung upright or upside down, against the grey sky and snow piled high on the ground. A thousand offshoots, leafless and brown shiver in the wind, without making a sound waiting for spring to come. Square panes within rectangle windows surround the courtyard like broad bars …

In the Doorway

A celestial image stands in the doorway her beauty is beyond all earthly sight. She pauses before she enters the room and asks If I will stay the night.   Beyond all dreams of life , what more could I desire, than her beauty and body in my arms, her radiant soul laying with mine, …

False Flag Dreams

      The false flags of dreams and schemes and conquests are  only pieces of tattered memories sewn into patterns of stars and stripes and colors. No one knows what the symbols on their flags mean, but to not pledge allegiance to them is treason. I remember as a child I had to pledge …

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 …

Blood Moon, 2014

    In the deepest night it passes over head. The doorway of death is the Blood Moon shining as the star gate to eternity.   The Blood Moon screams silently as it passes over humanity; eclipsing its own reflection.   Only blood stained souls fear and hear the cry of the Blood Moon and see …

Dancing with the Wind

Dancing with the wind

I hear its music, and feel the sound of the lost wind whirling around the imaginal realm. I hear its song, the beautiful song and feel the joy as, I dance with the wind. The sun smiles at me and the meadow flowers swaying in rhythmic motion, to the song of the wind. L.A.Steel Share

The Lost Post


It stood firmly in the ground alone and weather ravaged stoic and silent. It was all by itself in a field, someone had planted it and left it alone and never returned. What did it mean? What did it mark? Why did anyone bother? As I got closer it began to turn color and the …

The Forgotten


A vaporous memory passes before my inner eye reminding me of the forgotten. I see its form. I hear its faint cry, and wonder what it was. Was it a face or body or cry or wave of a forgotten friend? Somewhere in the distance of day a long forgotten memory smiles or frowns at …

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 …

Winter Is Finally Over

Spring has sprung

The cold days of gray sky and snow covered ground are finally gone. Smiles of petals and leaves, are widely grinning. It was warm but breezy yesterday, until the rain clouds crept in late last night and this morning, careful not to drown the newly budding greens. This evening might bring frost, to the North …

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 …

The Hallucination

The holographic effect of words rhyming with visions seems to throw a shadow over the concept of clear precise meaning.

Two Robins In A Blizzard (A Poem)

They were together on a tree outside our bedroom window, this morning during the blizzard. We wondered why they were there and if the robins were lost in the February storm. We marveled as we watched them because we both thought robins migrated in winter. I looked it up on my computer. As soon as …

The Inevitable is: The anger of betrayal. A baby cries. A politician lies. Doors are opened. Windows are closed. It rains in spring and winter is cold. Love abandons hate. A stone is hard.
