New Poems - Let me know what you think! :)

Doves and the Saturn Star
Surfacing, the moons, the glory, the missed…
Such as the day in the neverending morning bliss
The climbing and hunting of so many mountains
And the clay that molds the rest of us
As the winds chime our names
And the skies turn grey and listless
Pale light bathes us all the way
When children catch colds
And the rain watches pain, gliding, gracefully down a path
In open retreat of the doves and the Saturn star

Histories gaze and glaze has beckoned me
And made me memorize and left me mesmerized
As through the looking glass I amaze
To walk through the states of wonder and then walk on water
On willow tops of pillows and pillars in winter
Stalking the shallows of all the true blaze
Shadows hug the seams and steamy streams
When others cloud and struggle forth
And the sun brings out the safe namesake to charge furiously agai…

WAY TOO HOT!

Edmonton sucks this year for weather. Yes, I said it. IT SUCKS! It's WAY TOO HOT!

I woke up at about 3pm and it was still 26 degrees out, not to mention covered in sweat…literally my bed was soaked. It was as if someone dumped a bucket of water on me. So now not only do I get to go back to my sauna apartment after work, now I get to do laundry too! May I also add that the laundry room is ALWAYS hot, so it should be interesting.

I also don’t understand why everyone LOVES this heat and sunshine. Just the fact that everyone likes it makes me hate it. BA, HUMBUG!

My body is always on fire, so when heat like this happens I’m pretty much overheated 24/7, so it’s not enjoyable at all, and then friends of mine get mad when I don’t go out to festivals and stand in the sun. Gee, I wonder why?

And that’s my 2 cents; stay tuned tomorrow for the next whacky episode of Monikkr_M.

What do your Poems mean?

Here is my answer to that question:

“Picture a world of fantasy that combines horror, intelligence, purity & imagination. A place where anything and everything happens. Each poem is a story of someone or thing, be it living or non; it’s a story from their point of view… the magical, the fantastic, the whimsical in a marriage of hope and despair that can shock, inform or just beguile. The stories have meanings all their own. They ask me to write them, so asking me would be like asking Burger King why McDonald's named their burger “the Big Mac”. You derive your own meaning, as it is just as special as the true intended meaning, if there ever was one”

O.k. folks, here is the first of many poetry samples from the new upcoming book, above titled.

Let me know what you think...

Built for the Fear
Charms by storms and stars
the metal skin is fare, the taken middle heart
it's empty mass black from torches; warm, but not cold inside
all it wants is to die, not cry,
They tied it and tamed it but it was still alone,
eyeless and re-born and all it did was moan,
softly as trees embraced it, held it within, and where to
begin.

That comes across weak, but it was a giant
among friends that were always late. The grumble
the groan and being left all alone in the night to
strike matches for light. They were afraid, they were
all scared and no-one dared,
to leave late but come one day it escaped and it was that mistake
that it made and it was naked and shaped all along.
Then it was shot, bound and chained …

The Wanderer has arrived, and now he needs coffee!

Well here's my first post, obviously on my new blog! So come along for the ride if you wish, I'm sure we'll all learn a thing or 2 together and possibly have some fun along the way! Feel free to comment! Over the next few months or so, I'll be posting up some sample photographs I've taken and samples/excerpts of some poetry I've written over the years. Eventually there will be some music from my new - yet un-named side project where I will be doing everything... yeah... writing, producing, recording, playing...e.t.c. I may throw up some artwork here and there to make this place alot more flashy! (But don't hold your breath... I am lazy bastard!) ha ha just kidding, I'm just busy....

SO, with that being said, welcome! Enjoy & HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! (On November 30th) :)
