The Poets

Dedicated to KG

Triple Stage Darkness


First there comes a gentle flirt
That passes unaware
To darker chambers of the mind
And dwells without a care


Next there comes affinity
Where flesh conjoins to flesh
Like lapping waters of a lake
Whose scent of fish is fresh


Then there comes the sacred lie
That soul might touch with soul
But lust corrupts where loving lacks
And sin destroys the whole

Dedicated to the first real poet I ever began to read, Khalil Gibran. Happy date of birth, big guy …

Dark love poetry I see. I don't think I've read any Khalil Gibran, but I keep running across his name. I must check him out sometime soon.

Stunning! As was "Weakness." I had been missing your original works. Here's to a prolific 2012.

"The Prophet" was a mainstay in my 70's youth. Gibran influenced a generation.
