LOVELY FEATURES


To those whose
souls pour love

without being

preachers

lovely is
each feature
of every

single creature

*

Footnote: "All beings are
beautiful to those with
eyes of love" - Baba-

LOVING PARENTS

Certain skies weave
dark clouds
to rain
on other lands

as loving parents
away from the sun
 labor inside with their hands

For their children's food
clothing shelter and joy
they take a
faithful stand.

DEFENSE CONTRACTORS' LUNCHEON


At a defense contractor luncheon,

the eagle sculptured in ice

begins to drip water

from his melting beak.

One pointed frozen form

becomes all form.

The waters of peace are not ice

but flowing and flexible.

THE SAD AND THE POOR


The poor experience despair

as the wealth of the rich

shows ever greater disparity.

BELLS ON HIS FEET


It is said

Francis of Assisi

wore on his

barefoot feet bells

to warn the insects

of his advent

that all of

them be well

RESPECTING FROGGIE FEAR

Knowing that froggie fear

was engendered by horsie hooves,
Pegasus grew wings

and then he arose

framed by a sky

of orange pink and rose.

 

(dedicated to Pegasus rider Robert Maguire, AP's frogangel2, who failing his biology class

rather than dissect a frog)

Abdul Alhazred

Folder: 
Poetry

Alhazred was born in Yemen,
Traveling in the known world;
Amassing lore and legend,
And the tales of the fiends.

 

A writer and a poet,
He was educated much.
Geometry, algebra, Alchemy
And magickal incantations' need.

 

From the cup of occult knowledge
He drank deep...
Driving a normal person
To madness or beyond.

 

Alhazred was once a normal man,
With desires like we all can.
He was Arab by birth,
With a pale skin in rebirth.
Being labeled the mad,
As he was once a dad.
But had to eat his child,
By the King of the Palace's might.

 

He wrote down the Necronomicon,
In more than one song...
The obscure, the forgotten,
The suppressed, the rotten.
Never meant to be read;
It causes insanity with speed.
Not interpreted rationally,
The thoughts cause a rally.

 

Alhazred was insane,
By the lore he learned within.
But he wrote clear,
With many a tear.

 

The state of the Universe,
In reality suspense;
Plaything of mad gods at best,
Sewer of evil in the north, south, east, west.

 

Humans dare not dream of this,
For their peaceful lives they cannot miss.
A warning and guide this book is,
And by the Djinns you do wish.

 

Alhazred died, not a mystery,
It is written in history.
In the marketplace,
He was erased.
By the Demon from beyond,
Who wanted him gone.
Blood upon the sand,
There he was banned.
In broad daylight,
With many a sight.

 

He meddled with evil things,
With beings with wings.
He is now dead,
After he bled...
