NEW POEM: APRIL 27, 2015

STORY ON CANVAS

The reflection gazed back at the relentless sea

To capture the specter of the escapee

Inside the hollowness of the spirit

The word has become silent

From all the madness set free

In lieu of each brittle branch of an old tree

Sever the blossoming leaves one by one

Stare toward the cloudless sky and mock the sun

Point the finger on the blameless

Scrawl the sentences so shameless

Paint the contempt with an oil brush

A motion to persuade and hush

Betrayed by the loved companion

Flee from the mortal assassin

The arrow that pierced the heart

The ailment produced a work of art.
