'Tis summertime. The saxophone jazz

sounds are pirouetting the waves to find

a sense of balance. It is a mauve inner

dance in almost everything around. More


exactly, the melodious movable sounds

become those movements that start

sounding off to the winds while needing

a reverberation time to dissipate the energy.


'Tis a crusade that releases the own vow of chastity

to produce love for its offspring. These pulsed

sound waves keep also those memories of some

other hectic and transient seasons, which are lost


in that natural green being refreshed by a rehearsal.

The saxophone looks like a Tahitian prince dancing

his love in an exotic stagnant air. The singing mauve sea

is a bit too bitter for any taste at sunset. The last wave


is a watery mermaid and he embraces her while

thoroughly scrutinizing the high. The sounds

need touch and life. They need to dematerialize

and to disappear into the universe. The


saxophone remains a solitaire keeping

safe his evanescent hermetic equilibrium.


Mirror Sestet Poem For The Butterflies


Delight adorns butterfly’s fluttering wings in flight,

Flight is his beauty for anemones to delight.

Wing flitters freely and his fragile moods can swing,

Swing dances he teaches the white flowers with his wing.

Breeze finds him out among the blooming buckeye red trees,

Trees push his innocent virgin spirit in the breeze.



Dance nurtures the flower to put her into a deep trance,

Trance is his way to gather pollen for her life to dance.

Dreams fiery rise in crimson, when the flower gleams,

Gleams of dawn in the east are his love, powerful dreams.

Charms are her powers to spread the fragrances in his arms

Arms are his wings when he flies to search for other charms.
