The Mad Poet; 

       by: Jackie Aher



     i heard his refrain when the signal changed he was playing real good, for free. joni mitchell ...Hallelujah. Leonard Cohen


"I cry my Poet Tears across all my country's Greed andHate!"


sunrise song


quiet water rage

midnight moon stage

longtime summer urge

dreamtime dancing

consideration of time


panama gambler hat

blue hawaiian shirt


still dancing

where shadows concede

and women bleed


on a long drift

sunrise song

just a moment

when you no longer


singing free

all the water

from your eyes

dying alive


shade resting within

a rhyme of a poet's words

morning sunlight

harsh on tired eyes

no lies to compare

only distance

growing in a woman's stare

she's daring to believe in

within moments deep

where all the

no tomorrows live

touching shadows


all the hidden beauty

deep within the mirror

she choosing

she's dying alive

she's seeing the magic

of dying alive
