A Beacon Of Light Written by: Mario Vitale A beacon of light to a much hurting world in need !



Can't help but to claim..,



Some sense of identity,



Stregnth and encouragement only come from above !



Amidst in the distance, the trapped seagull..,



Lieth frightened but still yet adrift ! In a most vengeful fashion striking the passing fish, A true source of hope, Yet a most triumphal beam !



This beacon of light shineth forth, Passerby's can err' escape the helping hand..,



To the most sparkling of radiance !



(2)Thanksgiving Dinner by Mario Vitale Home for the holiday from New Orleans, with Mother and Father at the tiny drop leaf, brown rosewood, mahogany table with the gold, grinning claw feet; Father,
choler- red-in the-face, short- sleeved white shirt and cane, says the blessing as Mother brings in the turkey and cranberry. Then Mother asks, “Won’t you have more?” and father : “Do you think
Moll Flanders was a whore?” (I have suffered and bleached my hair blond.) I am silent before their replies. Mother sighs. “I can scarce speak to her.” And Father, too, quotes Shakespeare. (I am
thin as paper and the rose- colored bowl of blown glass sitting on the silver stand, half- filled with water.) “How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless daughter”

Song of Spring Today I heard a robin sing heralding the coming spring A song of exultation to the sky an ode to earth's awakening



I saw a willow on the hill It's branches greening in the sun and all the earth seemed hushed & still sleeping streams began to run



I heard a softly rising breeze whispering through the grass singing through the still bare trees waiting winter's chill to pass



I saw the sun, so bright and warm warming the earth after the rain the buds and leaves, no frost to harm at least, at last, it's spring again.



(4)



The Ancients It's my last day with the old giants In mourning I hike the lost trails, sniffing the aroma of the bark, that cinnamon of the forest Under tepees of wood in a membrane of shadows, I
stalk the earth, its mammal traces, its elusive tracks, to sit on a fallen log where spiders macramé, moss sloping to my knees unaware of invisibles within, grubbing in their tunnels A lizard taps
my foot, responding, I muse to its touch, my thoughts like Indian visions, And when daylight mushrooms into night, and an owl hoots from cedar, I still sit with a lizard on my shoe Huddled with the
ancients of the woods



(5)



Epiphany Written by: Mario Vitale It clings to the cliffed shore, to the wintered face of the thistle path, to the fingers of the old man's glove as he waves his memory homeward



In that breath between come and go she moves up from the bay; gold turns her stride, the line of her dress, the soft sea pulling at her feet



When he reaches out and the frail birds fly and the sun and the sky have married deep into the sea, it clings



Even as his shadow threads retreat, it clings, even now as it dissolves to mist



(6)



A Return Home, Only Time Will Tell Written by: Mario Vitale Oh blessed hope !



Both hardly a believable dream, Sweltering heat with bloodshed in the street... Send the troops home ! There is no clear reason for them to roam..,



These are desolate times ! For we have chosen ill faded rhymes.., The casualties are enormous ? For a stated cause that clearly atrocious..,



A mother's cry as the door chime rings, A vanishing salute to freedom as the church choir sings ! Let us look above to all the heavenly love.., Merciful one, take this chip off my shoulder..,



Stop the senseless fighting before our dear nation grows a bit colder, Suddenly, seeds were dropped out of a farmers bag, In time roots spring up fresh out of the fertile soil... As the sun heats
up,



Time will tell when this harvest will soon boil... In the vast game of life, One's time is so very brief ! The soul yearns for its' heavenly relief..,



Share with others who may want to turn over a brand new leaf..,



Time will tell of the true importance of helping one another, To never give into the finish line.., Nor harsh criticism that our society puts out ! Like a famous fighter in his final bout !



Time will tell of the return home, To the open arms of a loved one !

A Valiant Knight Written by: Mario Vitale A Valiant Knight



Death springs a new day basking in the breeze In solemn moments lets pause to think of a place A far off castle in the mountains away from it all A valiant knight lived in the structure of it's
dwelling Those days of old where mere men had a noble demise A beautiful maiden was in waiting for her knight He would often fight for the cause of stregnth and dignity The draw bridge where the
castle stood had a very unique aura A mystery of sort sought up in the vast array of crowned nobility



For the king on his thrown was humble yet greedy Always would take care of himself caring nothing for the needy A valiant knight was concerned about the kings trust Often they would disagree on who
it was to serve A joker came in front of the king one day with a magic wand Waving the wand in the air then there floated ivy everywhere For the court jester was a fool in the making of his legacy
The maiden would often come forth and see



For she treasured a red rose that was plucked sometime before Cherished the calling of her stature to the glory of the throne A valiant knight would often sing sweet songs in the night Had a
following of village people that would sit before his feet Having a way of words that he would often share The castle was filled with dragons and warlocks searching for love A cause to be brave
amidst uncertainty of the kingdom The legacy of golden capulets filled ardent vestibules Let us toast to the valiant knight who keeps a watch on all that is good



(8) Hampton Beach



The smell of fresh fry doe Time had elapsed playing at the casino Fresh lobster with a side order of fries Those spacious wonderful sky's Down at the shell the continental were playing A walk by
the lady of a statue in waiting Flip flops and the sound of laughter A playground for kids in the middle The boardwalk with seagulls flocking over head Fire works in the midnight air with a cheer



(9)



God's World It is raining again. Summer will be over before it ever gets here Thunder rolls far away, drops hit the windshield, the sky turns gray



The Sunflower, the blue Delpinium, the white Stinkwood drink the moisture greedily. The green and silver



leaves of the Aspens sparkle as the rain hits them, and the wind turns them round and round The creek flows on, oblivious to the change in the weather.



A break in the clouds allows a bit of sun to hit the side of a towering mountain Three cows slowly wend their way homeward. It is dusk. The gray clouds lift and the sun bursts through,



before sliding behind the hills for the night It is God's World. He gives it to us to enjoy and to share with each other



(10)



Jake's House There was a man whose name was Jake Who had a house upon the lake Every morning he would wake And for breakfast have a piece of cake



He had a private fishing hole; He always used a long cane pole He fried his fish on red hot coal And served it in a great big bowl



For a pet, he had a cat

In The Zone Written by: Mario Vitale In The Zone



whispers... through the dark deranged portals you evoke fear filled with angelic fervor on it's textual base yet we dig much deep then ever before



cries in the dark will light the spark of what we need to know still we stand idle as the average novice introduces its spell along again then the sadness evokes a newer feeling dwindling through
the vain extraction of the never world



we visually see a flash then a new day approaches on the lawn two lovers having passionate sex the screams of vile extreme explodes throughout perhaps this is the place where Nero tread



yet again I sit alone in my house now huddled in the corner the twilight sun has tainted my inner vision the howls of Satanic laughter gives a piercing shriek through a candle was lit by the edge
of my bed



One can remain lax in the quietness of the moment yet again the setting of the sun a new day has begun as we embark on the moment Does death hurt you the most or is it fear



You can equate logic through a firm grasp of the hand whispers again... then a faint cry, we construct living pyramids to honor the dead



A stroke of luck an the impulse ensues onto so much more but for what are we grasping for straws what are we searching for ? quietness again this time I'm in the zone



as if zombie creatures with viscous long fangs that bite dripping blood off side we run away to hide no one questions anymore no one has a voice alone one last time yet feelings of grandeur awake



to the message of hope that spills from the sky a challenge to be free is a question of time eyes with spots digging holes in a pool of blood Satan laughing again spreads his wings



Suddenly I awake but to what ?



(12)



An End Of The Age Of Innocence Part III Written by: Mario Vitale In our fast paced twentieth century world..,



We oft' have neglected to stop to smell the roses, Oft' we used to bow our heads silently to pray, As we reflect back to the sixties is had launched a pad to rebellion ! With a vast amount of
liberal bias and thinking,



No wonder why our nation is sinking..,



Sinking amidst a cuss pool of mere morality.., For now it is a quite different time, A very unique but different type of day.., An end of the age of innocence,



One hath been enlightened..,



From seeking truth, Some fresh out of a garbage can.., Yet for Gods' sake, He hath such an amazing plan !



Hence, to shun the broad road,



Yet to seek to venture in the narrow.., Such as a distant bird in flight ! You might see this creature venture out at night ? Of the Eagle nor the Sparrow..,



It used to mean something to have a sense of common courteous.., To hold open the door for your neighbor ? Yet for the time being we relent and waiver.., Would you prefer another taste of a certain
ice cream flavor ?



To ponder we must be content with who we are in the inside..,



Nor, a mere fancy suit or blazing sport's car, Life is a roller coaster.., In what you do while busy making other plans.., Finding solace among the height of nature.,



Such to think at what is quite simple, As a young child reflects on his or her poster board, Playing with their magic crayons.., For in eternity it is such a very long time !



Take heed in what you do,



Now is the expectant hour ! What will one choose to do ? There can be no place nor need for any compromise, Within it's vast perpetual spectrum !



One just can't put a price tag on a genuine but unique heart !



Hence, with honest integrity.., The time for change is today !

He Was There by Mario William Vitale



From the inner silence of the lamb he was there In welcoming to the world to share Within the multiple of words the mouth speaks As a heart beats through the passage of time To every poem that was
ever written To every burden ever lifted To rivers crossing where people living Sometimes loving other moments giving In storms that were outside brewing What is the significance of this love In
painted pictures from above To every soldier in a battle To every cow amidst the cattle Not a second glance at any real romance A field of dreams throughout our head From both fire and ice will
make you think twice Perhaps another chance at a roll of the dice When every kingdom comes thy will be done Shadows in the shining morn if there's a rose it bears a thorn, He was there in every
circumstance When they tried to throw stones at her He was there drawing a line with his finger in the sand It is my hope that some day all will understand A glance at the past will tell us of our
future Amidst the inner pain & uncertainty Through shadows in a field of dreams In moments of solace amidst the pain A light moved out upon the street outside A day that wasn't meant to be Thorn
crown was pulled upon his head Those shouts of intense anger from the mob There was only one who would help him back on his feet, A light that brought only a few to greet Let us not run away & hide
Each one of our sins was placed on that cross To lose the battle now would end in tragic loss Father please forgive them for they know not what they do He said the prayer now the rest is up to you
That cross that broke a sinful world apart With his blood-soaked crown with spear in side To show the whole world he had nothing to hide The summoned cry brought about healing in the sky Watch the
free angelic dove fly!

Momma Of Pearls by Mario William Vitale



Since there's nothing I could find That was worth giving you, I sat down to think a while And write a line or two If I had a magic wand I'd wave it just for you, And give you anything you'd like No
matter how many or few If I could give you back the years You so willingly gave to me I'm sure that you spend them over again The same as they used to be Remember when those days and nights Instead
of going to the fair I'd always say tell me again The story of the three little bears I tried to get a strawberry pie But they were out of season Then I thought of gold or pearls But knew there was
no reason Although you are so often quiet There's one thing we can say, You will always be our momma of pearls forever and a day... So here's your gift; my sweet momma My heart; my soul; my love,
My gift to you this Christmas day Came strictly from above



(15)



Easement by Mario William Vitale



I watched from the porch of the old nursing home Their games and informal plays, And reveled in memories conjured up Of my happy childhood days It was the touch of her warm little hand As she held
the rose out to me, That reminded me of my own child's touch Caressing me tenderly I longed to smooth the tangled curls, To hold her close to me, To tuck fairy kisses in her palm For our mutual
ecstasy But she was off like a fleeting fawn To join her friends in play And I fervently hoped she would return With a sweet smelling clover bouquet The little girl came on another day, Bringing
cookies she had made Of sand and water and raspberry caps, We ate them-unafraid! She was back again with comb and brush To tame her windblown hair; When she leaned on my lap with her story book I
was content in my answered prayer



(16)



The Promise by Mario William Vitale



We promised to love- until death do us part Now you're leaving- you're breaking my heart, You found someone else- you love more then me- Now it's over- you're setting me free You promised me-there
could never be Anyone- you could love more then me, Now you tell me- that you love him And my love- you could never share You promised me- our love would last forever That we would always be
together, Now it's over- just memories remain What once was happiness-now is pain



(17)



Time by Mario William Vitale



Time is one of a series of recurring instance, or repeat action As time goes on, the birth of a child in time you hope that the life of a child... would have the time to develop Time to walk, time
to talk Time to gain, time to lose Time to cry, time to laugh As time tick, tocks away, we go on hoping that the next second will be the most exciting experience that time can bring but we know
that time can bring sorrow to make you feel time will never end the moment of pain Wondering will I have more time time is out of our hand as time goes on Time is here, time is now Time is up Time
is running out. It's time !

The Motorcycle Gang Written by: Mario Vitale The Motorcycle Gang



A venue was set Folks came from miles around Just to hear the music & get down The band was wailing on their guitar A solo was underway The brews were flowing Suddenly the leader of the pack rolled
in It was the captain along with his faithful regime All those Harley's on a free spirit scene The smell of pot was everywhere what a blur It was all sex, drugs & rock and roll The gang circled
around A white flag was flown There was a specific truce to part They were running with the wolf pack Feelings that there never coming back Grab a lady and take her for a swing They all carried a
piece Such rebels on the burning strip A life on a pleasurable trip A soul based on fun out on the run No faith based all run on sight No laboring for the legal tender For that is there right Give
the finger to the fuzz Leather pants with eyes in a trance Eyes filled with tombstones in their head Some have said it's the walking dead A rap sheet that runs a mile long Take it to the limit is
there favorite song A free will with a free bird spirit intact They were all legends in there own right There the sons of thunder rolling clowns in life's big circus



(19)



A Gothic Revival Quest Written by: Mario Vitale A Gothic Revival Quest



Pillars in light fashionable decorum sets the standard Those high rise structures with heavenly interior The holy oblation lead to the ultimate construction In matters of trust we can maintain a
humane aura A heart that devised the good of humanities stake & claim An old lady named Grier used to live in it's dwelling A structure well kept yet needs a fix up with the plumbing Grier used to
frequent her yard with it's barbed wire fence Tragedy had claimed her late husband's life that left her alone She carries on with a smile in her lone desolation A mere place for rest like a long
awaited vacation With sincere love in her heart she would often sing Letting in the sunshine inside her brilliant dwelling A noted poet herself used to write to her hearts content The fashion of
her study was filled with perfume & appeal Stacks of books lined the way the went to her parlor She made music in her head as she was getting ready to sleep A sincere whisper of gratitude would
always be nestled at her feet For Grier was living smooth to the natural eye Sought back the pain from within with a simple sigh She dedicates her home to the loving hands of almighty God Enough to
give her courage amidst a darkened cloud Silently awaits the true love to come through the door A beacon of light to a much hurting world in need Soft lace now decorates the rug with plush
moderation A sip of tea will bring forth a new year's resolution She has gained yet also has lost humanities heaviest cost With four walls of gothic revival in her unique quest



(20)



In Times Of Uncertainty Written by: Mario Vitale In Times OF Uncertainty



We live for self amidst the greed In timeless thought provoked take heed Swift viable remorse on record In times of uncertainty Don't trust something you don't understand Through a heavy edge
proned in trust With a temperment in a midas touch From a word spoken in the dark Has now come to the fullest of light In given moments of happiness to endless fright Forget the night!



With no given since of remorse nor shoulder to cry;



Among the evil creatures at night will fly The times of uncertainty suddenly go by Although we at times wander as in a nomadic tribe Yet we will persist through the pain to thank God I'm alive!



Since all the fools sail away It pays to take pride in homage gain To humbly bow the knee to pray Then with these promises we chose to fade away From the things we shared in promises The times of
uncertainty away in dire need While the world outside having viscous fangs that bleed Dripping blood off side to hide; We really have no reason to run away & hide



The times of uncertainty & want



Marked on a blotted page intact When the whole world outside is in a rage! Giving each other a heart attack!



(21) Woods and Trees Written by: Mario Vitale In late Spring when heros scream



A source of sophistication from faint misery Inside the thwart hidden silence of the pivotal solace of my mind With mind blowing excursion toward the legally blind inside Woods in growing
habitation & silence



Woods in distant pathways derived from a slight bite in solace



After a warm fire woods will then stand tall amidst uncertainty Is is where one could often sport for game Hunters in woods will drive you totally insane in brain In extreme situations the wood can
be an untimely climatic disaster to fathom



Woods



In significant direct correlation through storms in danger arms wide opened Woods can create a swift barrier of thoughtful change, A romantic encounter by which the lover shall stray Is there any
other mental nor mere philisophical way



Nature lies dormant amidst its beckoning call With a swift viable pulse derived after the fall Transformed by silence of thought provoked listening elm & pine Created in enriched diplomacy from God
by his great design



God again speaks through me from the sound of a wolf intact



He completes his journey through stregnth by which to resist Woods We scenic scope in vast briars taunt In vegetation swine with sukken asps which haunt



Vanquished moss covered up in grey filtered steam



An approaching visible light to follow a dream A captivated look into the woods Engulfed in moss green briars torn asunder Trees fallen in decorated colors



In the dead of Winter leaves tumble to the ground



With mice and men walking alone On a crooked path filled with rocks & twigs Such as a bushel filled with acorns & figs Within desolation there crys a fever pitch Trees in silence Trees in a ditch
Silence in thought provoking beckoning call A combersom message that negates a stall With a figure of speech twisted in a dream turned nightmare Why should we even bother or for that matter really
care Trees in a Bob Ross brightened country portrait sway feel Trees can define sullen wounds that sometime bind Make good use of your time within sullen asps which chime Throughout its darkened
portal without having restraint Trees can exhibit a dire need to express With just a little love and a whole lot of tenderness Meditation through barbed wire fences filled up in tears Absorbed in
concrete fenders filled in ellaborate decorum cheers Switching full gears from sullen tears to that of darkened fears.



(22)Fire and Rain Written by: Mario Vitale Blood soaked drops of resin dew



Into sweat found nothing new Shadows prance yet something sticks like glue In battered soil proclaims a dedication Amancipation



The thrill will seek through both fire & explain Let me further explain: One in twain yet marked on its blotted page yet clearly intact The pain of refusal of sod amidst its wooden axe



In flowers ardent resin twain povides a shade In temporal cure for pain amidst the flames As tired as a wretched man I claim we stake to scene In soaked clothes of leaves soaked in debris



Within timeless cue of sympathy Shattered beneathe the leaves the falling debris In fruition a braided skeleton etched in modern art



In reluctance toward the forbidden tree we get ripped apart



For she lit that inner spark to what it was I have been waiting for !



(23)



Give Me Shelter From The Storm Written by: Mario Vitale With faces in the window having storms in the night



You gave me promises they gave me pain When will we ever live to understand this game Give me shelter from the storm within cause we may never live again In shattered dreams brought through its
timely theme



Many are still wandering alone in the darkness of night



A plate of desire poured out with a creme sauce of desolation



At the mountain top the unique summit has a keen sense of view Through ardent Spring lingers through a papal elect few It's sought after portal of death as glue Shutters through the spark at morn,



Some would even bother to curse the very day they were actually born;



A sought after portal which breathed in death Yet still marked on its blotted page very much fully intact,



Working too hard can give anyone an instant heart attack Smoke filled rooms filled up in fetters cry of full forced desolation; In combersome threats the chief negotiator left, A fields of dreams
coming apart at the seams



A port in storm through emmense pain where through,



Give me shelter from the storm, Amidst total sadness with stillness we soon learn to reflect Just as in some twilight sun that has tainted my inner vision Perhaps its in some one track mind that
was fully set on some mission



The certain timely strain on the heart can light its inner spark;



Give me shelter from the storm amidst the sequence of outer pain, In pain to harm the weary soul in which one can helplessly lose all control



Amidst viable dreams proned in an onslaught filled preminition The sought after portal to death, Yet still again marked on a blotted page fully intact In timeless combersome threats toward their
negotiable left



A field of dreams coming apart at its seams



Give me shelter from the storms of life amidst its inner strife Amidst sadness within stillness will learn to reflect; Just as in a twilight sun that has tainted my inner vision Perhaps its in a
one track mind that's head out on a mission



That certain spark within a strain on a heart can light a timely spark



Give me shelter from its storm Very much haunted by an eclipse of the sun Through a quaint rehearsal in its timeless cue In distinguishing truth dismissed from its ultimate error



Many will escape into a quadratic motif through that of choice



A world filled still fixed in telling lies within its tormented souls Broken skulls with fragmentation of vile demise That quick fix challenge just not to have to deal with reality.



(24)



Aura Written by: Mario Vitale Shades of pine grafted in again resign Shattered pine in elm certain grove alone My meadow had a thorn certain credit The factual harm of its heartless swarm Featured
within in the created design with pine Eyes sharpened as a willow in garb The tornado sequence has even the fog alone Again tempors fly like never before Blatant lies have come at no surprise In
parts unknown an aura of repute to harm Sound the alarm in fetters arm Choirs of saints in regard to its beckoning drawn Empire strain inside my brain fragments of cure The surface of the sun has
tainted my vision with harm Sound the alarm agiain my faithful friend by whom we can depend Shattered glass on the parchment floor Aura An impulse deep in regards to the heart Shades of pine will
line the volume of scattered pillows A willow in derision you made a final decision A thought provokoing reason to believe in Shattered memory's in the moments of innocence with a plight of
disbelief We have soon turned over a brand new leaf Timeless peaks in a swelll shattered fragments from within A great design still sublime in its timeless parts the heart Aura Jim Morrison had it
Janis Joplin couldn't stop it Jimi Hendrix sought this quick fix An unbellievable call being caught in the mix!



(25)



Angel Written by: Mario Vitale



From a distance the sound of feathers A whole host of words often whispered As if you haven't already heard his saving message In bitter silence we slowly become unshackled From this lying bitter
place of cold ego's Then angel spreads her wings out on windows peak She then keeps silent from inside her swell; At its cold whispers haunting to dwell Many keep to themselves not wanting to be
alone Then a cold chill sends a rage down my spine tingling like off the vine In time the sun heats up out on waters edge devides Many a demon would so often run away & hide Angels totally
surrenders out on its night scene A brandished web of forbidden design, For some the angel would lie in wait to deceive In triumphant sounds of musical magestic beings light the scene We our still
here to help egnite its flame While the entire world outside lies helplessly insane Out on its playing field some have no game,



When our generation dies so does the other, The angel of darkness will seek to inhabit its light Shackled from a memory on a certain quest nor plight

A Beacon Of Light

Written by: Mario Vitale

A beacon of light to a much hurting world in need !

?

Can't help but to claim..,

?

Some sense of identity,

?

Stregnth and encouragement only come from above !

?

?

?

Amidst in the distance, the trapped seagull..,

?

Lieth frightened but still yet adrift !

In a most vengeful fashion striking the passing fish,

A true source of hope,

Yet a most triumphal beam !

?

This beacon of light shineth forth,

Passerby's can err' escape the helping hand..,

?

To the most sparkling of radiance !

(2)Thanksgiving Dinner by Mario Vitale

Home for the holiday from New Orleans,
with Mother and Father at the tiny
drop leaf, brown rosewood, mahogany
table with the gold, grinning claw feet;
Father, choler- red-in the-face, short-
sleeved white shirt and cane, says the blessing
as Mother brings in the turkey and cranberry.
Then Mother asks, "Won’t you have more?" and father :
"Do you think Moll Flanders was a whore?"

(I have suffered and bleached my hair blond.)
I am silent before their replies.
Mother sighs. "I can scarce speak to her."
And Father, too, quotes Shakespeare. (I am thin
as paper and the rose- colored bowl
of blown glass sitting on the silver stand,
half- filled with water.)

"How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is
to have a thankless daughter"

Song of Spring
Today I heard a robin sing
heralding the coming spring
A song of exultation to the sky
an ode to earth's awakening

I saw a willow on the hill
It's branches greening in the sun
and all the earth seemed hushed & still
sleeping streams began to run

I heard a softly rising breeze
whispering through the grass
singing through the still bare trees
waiting winter's chill to pass

I saw the sun, so bright and warm
warming the earth after the rain
the buds and leaves, no frost to harm
at least, at last, it's spring again.

The Ancients
It's my last day with the old giants
In mourning I hike the lost trails,
sniffing the aroma of the bark,
that cinnamon of the forest
Under tepees of wood
in a membrane of shadows,
I stalk the earth, its mammal traces,
its elusive tracks,
to sit on a fallen log
where spiders macramé,
moss sloping to my knees
unaware of invisibles within,
grubbing in their tunnels
A lizard taps my foot,
responding, I muse to its touch,
my thoughts like Indian visions,
And when daylight mushrooms into night,
and an owl hoots from cedar,
I still sit with a lizard on my shoe
Huddled with the ancients of the woods

Epiphany

Written by: Mario Vitale

It clings to the cliffed shore,

to the wintered face of the thistle path,

to the fingers of the old man's glove

as he waves his memory homeward

?

In that breath between come and go

she moves up from the bay;

gold turns her stride,

the line of her dress,

the soft sea pulling at her feet

?

When he reaches out

and the frail birds fly

and the sun and the sky

have married deep into the sea, it clings

?

Even as his shadow threads retreat,

it clings, even now as it dissolves to mist

?

A Return Home, Only Time Will Tell

Written by: Mario Vitale

Oh blessed hope !

?

Both hardly a believable dream,

Sweltering heat with bloodshed in the street...

Send the troops home !

There is no clear reason for them to roam..,

?

These are desolate times !

For we have chosen ill faded rhymes..,

The casualties are enormous ?

For a stated cause that clearly atrocious..,

?

A mother's cry as the door chime rings,

A vanishing salute to freedom as the church choir sings !

Let us look above to all the heavenly love..,

Merciful one, take this chip off my shoulder..,

?

Stop the senseless fighting before our dear nation grows a bit colder,

Suddenly, seeds were dropped out of a farmers bag,

In time roots spring up fresh out of the fertile soil...

As the sun heats up,

?

?

Time will tell when this harvest will soon boil...

In the vast game of life,

One's time is so very brief !

The soul yearns for its' heavenly relief..,

?

Share with others who may want to turn over a brand new leaf..,

?

Time will tell of the true importance of helping one another,

To never give into the finish line..,

Nor harsh criticism that our society puts out !

Like a famous fighter in his final bout !

?

Time will tell of the return home,

To the open arms of a loved one !

A Valiant Knight

Written by: Mario Vitale

A Valiant Knight

?

Death springs a new day basking in the breeze

In solemn moments lets pause to think of a place

A far off castle in the mountains away from it all

A valiant knight lived in the structure of it's dwelling

Those days of old where mere men had a noble demise

A beautiful maiden was in waiting for her knight

He would often fight for the cause of stregnth and dignity

The draw bridge where the castle stood had a very unique aura

A mystery of sort sought up in the vast array of crowned nobility

?

For the king on his thrown was humble yet greedy

Always would take care of himself caring nothing for the needy

A valiant knight was concerned about the kings trust

Often they would disagree on who it was to serve

A joker came in front of the king one day with a magic wand

Waving the wand in the air then there floated ivy everywhere

For the court jester was a fool in the making of his legacy

The maiden would often come forth and see

?

For she treasured a red rose that was plucked sometime before

Cherished the calling of her stature to the glory of the throne

A valiant knight would often sing sweet songs in the night

Had a following of village people that would sit before his feet

Having a way of words that he would often share

The castle was filled with dragons and warlocks searching for love

A cause to be brave amidst uncertainty of the kingdom

The legacy of golden capulets filled ardent vestibules

Let us toast to the valiant knight who keeps a watch on all that is good

Hampton Beach

The smell of fresh fry doe
Time had elapsed playing at the casino
Fresh lobster with a side order of fries
Those spacious wonderful sky's
Down at the shell the continental were playing
A walk by the lady of a statue in waiting
Flip flops and the sound of laughter
A playground for kids in the middle
The boardwalk with seagulls flocking over head
Fire works in the midnight air with a cheer

God's World

It is raining again.
Summer will be over before it ever gets here
Thunder rolls far away, drops
hit the windshield, the sky turns gray

The Sunflower, the blue
Delpinium, the white
Stinkwood drink the moisture
greedily. The green and silver

leaves of the Aspens sparkle as the rain hits them, and the
wind turns them round and round
The creek flows on, oblivious to
the change in the weather.

A break in the clouds allows a bit of sun to hit the side of a
towering mountain
Three cows slowly wend their way homeward. It is dusk.
The gray clouds lift and the sun bursts through,

before sliding behind the hills for the night
It is God's World. He gives it to us to enjoy and to share with each other

Jake's House

There was a man whose name was Jake
Who had a house upon the lake
Every morning he would wake
And for breakfast have a piece of cake

He had a private fishing hole;
He always used a long cane pole
He fried his fish on red hot coal
And served it in a great big bowl

For a pet, he had a cat

In The Zone

Written by: Mario Vitale

In The Zone

?

whispers...

through the dark deranged portals you evoke fear

filled with angelic fervor on it's textual base

yet we dig much deep then ever before

?

cries in the dark will light the spark of what we need to know

still we stand idle as the average novice introduces its spell

along again then the sadness evokes a newer feeling

dwindling through the vain extraction of the never world

?

we visually see a flash then a new day approaches

on the lawn two lovers having passionate sex

the screams of vile extreme explodes throughout

perhaps this is the place where Nero tread

?

yet again I sit alone in my house now huddled in the corner

the twilight sun has tainted my inner vision

the howls of Satanic laughter gives a piercing shriek through

a candle was lit by the edge of my bed

?

One can remain lax in the quietness of the moment

yet again the setting of the sun

a new day has begun as we embark on the moment

Does death hurt you the most or is it fear

?

You can equate logic through a firm grasp of the hand

whispers again...

then a faint cry,

we construct living pyramids to honor the dead

?

A stroke of luck an the impulse ensues

onto so much more but for what

are we grasping for straws what are we searching for ?

quietness again this time I'm in the zone

?

as if zombie creatures with viscous long fangs that bite

dripping blood off side we run away to hide

no one questions anymore no one has a voice

alone one last time yet feelings of grandeur awake

?

to the message of hope that spills from the sky

a challenge to be free is a question of time

eyes with spots digging holes in a pool of blood

Satan laughing again spreads his wings

?

Suddenly I awake but to what ?

An End Of The Age Of Innocence Part III

Written by: Mario Vitale

In our fast paced twentieth century world..,

?

We oft' have neglected to stop to smell the roses,

Oft' we used to bow our heads silently to pray,

As we reflect back to the sixties is had launched a pad to rebellion !

With a vast amount of liberal bias and thinking,

?

No wonder why our nation is sinking..,

?

Sinking amidst a cuss pool of mere morality..,

For now it is a quite different time,

A very unique but different type of day..,

An end of the age of innocence,

?

One hath been enlightened..,

?

From seeking truth,

Some fresh out of a garbage can..,

Yet for Gods' sake,

He hath such an amazing plan !

?

Hence, to shun the broad road,

?

Yet to seek to venture in the narrow..,

Such as a distant bird in flight !

You might see this creature venture out at night ?

Of the Eagle nor the Sparrow..,

?

It used to mean something to have a sense of common courteous..,

To hold open the door for your neighbor ?

Yet for the time being we relent and waiver..,

Would you prefer another taste of a certain ice cream flavor ?

?

To ponder we must be content with who we are in the inside..,

?

Nor, a mere fancy suit or blazing sport's car,

Life is a roller coaster..,

In what you do while busy making other plans..,

Finding solace among the height of nature.,

?

Such to think at what is quite simple,

As a young child reflects on his or her poster board,

Playing with their magic crayons..,

For in eternity it is such a very long time !

?

Take heed in what you do,

?

Now is the expectant hour !

What will one choose to do ?

There can be no place nor need for any compromise,

Within it's vast perpetual spectrum !

?

One just can't put a price tag on a genuine but unique heart !

?

Hence, with honest integrity..,

The time for change is today !

He Was There

by Mario William Vitale

?

From the inner silence of the lamb he was there
In welcoming to the world to share
Within the multiple of words the mouth speaks
As a heart beats through the passage of time
To every poem that was ever written
To every burden ever lifted
To rivers crossing where people living
Sometimes loving other moments giving
In storms that were outside brewing
What is the significance of this love
In painted pictures from above
To every soldier in a battle
To every cow amidst the cattle
Not a second glance at any real romance
A field of dreams throughout our head
From both fire and ice will make you think twice
Perhaps another chance at a roll of the dice
When every kingdom comes thy will be done
Shadows in the shining morn if there's a rose it bears a thorn,

He was there in every circumstance
When they tried to throw stones at her
He was there drawing a line with his finger in the sand
It is my hope that some day all will understand
A glance at the past will tell us of our future
Amidst the inner pain & uncertainty
Through shadows in a field of dreams
In moments of solace amidst the pain
A light moved out upon the street outside
A day that wasn't meant to be
Thorn crown was pulled upon his head
Those shouts of intense anger from the mob
There was only one who would help him back on his feet,

A light that brought only a few to greet
Let us not run away & hide
Each one of our sins was placed on that cross
To lose the battle now would end in tragic loss
Father please forgive them for they know not what they do
He said the prayer now the rest is up to you
That cross that broke a sinful world apart
With his blood-soaked crown with spear in side
To show the whole world he had nothing to hide
The summoned cry brought about healing in the sky
Watch the free angelic dove fly!

Momma Of Pearls

by Mario William Vitale

?

Since there's nothing I could find
That was worth giving you,
I sat down to think a while
And write a line or two

If I had a magic wand
I'd wave it just for you,
And give you anything you'd like
No matter how many or few

If I could give you back the years
You so willingly gave to me
I'm sure that you spend them over again
The same as they used to be

Remember when those days and nights
Instead of going to the fair
I'd always say tell me again
The story of the three little bears

I tried to get a strawberry pie
But they were out of season
Then I thought of gold or pearls
But knew there was no reason

Although you are so often quiet
There's one thing we can say,
You will always be our momma of pearls
forever and a day...

So here's your gift; my sweet momma
My heart; my soul; my love,
My gift to you this Christmas day
Came strictly from above

Easement

by Mario William Vitale

?

I watched from the porch of the old nursing home
Their games and informal plays,
And reveled in memories conjured up
Of my happy childhood days

It was the touch of her warm little hand
As she held the rose out to me,
That reminded me of my own child's touch
Caressing me tenderly

I longed to smooth the tangled curls,
To hold her close to me,
To tuck fairy kisses in her palm
For our mutual ecstasy

But she was off like a fleeting fawn
To join her friends in play
And I fervently hoped she would return
With a sweet smelling clover bouquet

The little girl came on another day,
Bringing cookies she had made
Of sand and water and raspberry caps,
We ate them-unafraid!

She was back again with comb and brush
To tame her windblown hair;
When she leaned on my lap with her story book
I was content in my answered prayer

The Promise

by Mario William Vitale

?

We promised to love- until death do us part
Now you're leaving- you're breaking my heart,
You found someone else- you love more then me-
Now it's over- you're setting me free

You promised me-there could never be
Anyone- you could love more then me,
Now you tell me- that you love him
And my love- you could never share

You promised me- our love would last forever
That we would always be together,
Now it's over- just memories remain
What once was happiness-now is pain

Time

by Mario William Vitale

?

Time is one of a series of recurring instance, or repeat action
As time goes on, the birth of a child in time you hope that the life of a child...
would have the time to develop

Time to walk, time to talk
Time to gain, time to lose
Time to cry, time to laugh
As time tick, tocks away, we go on
hoping that the next second will be
the most exciting experience that time can bring
but we know that time can bring sorrow
to make you feel time will never end
the moment of pain
Wondering will I have more time
time is out of our hand
as time goes on
Time is here, time is now
Time is up
Time is running out. It's time !

The Motorcycle Gang

Written by: Mario Vitale

The Motorcycle Gang

?

A venue was set

Folks came from miles around

Just to hear the music & get down

The band was wailing on their guitar

A solo was underway

The brews were flowing

Suddenly the leader of the pack rolled in

It was the captain along with his faithful regime

All those Harley's on a free spirit scene

The smell of pot was everywhere what a blur

It was all sex, drugs & rock and roll

The gang circled around

A white flag was flown

There was a specific truce to part

They were running with the wolf pack

Feelings that there never coming back

Grab a lady and take her for a swing

They all carried a piece

Such rebels on the burning strip

A life on a pleasurable trip

A soul based on fun out on the run

No faith based all run on sight

No laboring for the legal tender

For that is there right

Give the finger to the fuzz

Leather pants with eyes in a trance

Eyes filled with tombstones in their head

Some have said it's the walking dead

A rap sheet that runs a mile long

Take it to the limit is there favorite song

A free will with a free bird spirit intact

They were all legends in there own right

There the sons of thunder rolling clowns in life's big circus

A Gothic Revival Quest

Written by: Mario Vitale

A Gothic Revival Quest

?

Pillars in light fashionable decorum sets the standard

Those high rise structures with heavenly interior

The holy oblation lead to the ultimate construction

In matters of trust we can maintain a humane aura

A heart that devised the good of humanities stake & claim

An old lady named Grier used to live in it's dwelling

A structure well kept yet needs a fix up with the plumbing

Grier used to frequent her yard with it's barbed wire fence

Tragedy had claimed her late husband's life that left her alone

She carries on with a smile in her lone desolation

A mere place for rest like a long awaited vacation

With sincere love in her heart she would often sing

Letting in the sunshine inside her brilliant dwelling

A noted poet herself used to write to her hearts content

The fashion of her study was filled with perfume & appeal

Stacks of books lined the way the went to her parlor

She made music in her head as she was getting ready to sleep

A sincere whisper of gratitude would always be nestled at her feet

For Grier was living smooth to the natural eye

Sought back the pain from within with a simple sigh

She dedicates her home to the loving hands of almighty God

Enough to give her courage amidst a darkened cloud

Silently awaits the true love to come through the door

A beacon of light to a much hurting world in need

Soft lace now decorates the rug with plush moderation

A sip of tea will bring forth a new year's resolution

She has gained yet also has lost humanities heaviest cost

With four walls of gothic revival in her unique quest

In Times Of Uncertainty

Written by: Mario Vitale

In Times OF Uncertainty

?

We live for self amidst the greed

In timeless thought provoked take heed

Swift viable remorse on record

In times of uncertainty

Don't trust something you don't understand

Through a heavy edge proned in trust

With a temperment in a midas touch

From a word spoken in the dark

Has now come to the fullest of light

In given moments of happiness to endless fright

Forget the night!

?

With no given since of remorse nor shoulder to cry;

?

Among the evil creatures at night will fly

The times of uncertainty suddenly go by

Although we at times wander as in a nomadic tribe

Yet we will persist through the pain to thank God I'm alive!

?

Since all the fools sail away

It pays to take pride in homage gain

To humbly bow the knee to pray

Then with these promises we chose to fade away

From the things we shared in promises

The times of uncertainty away in dire need

While the world outside having viscous fangs that bleed

Dripping blood off side to hide;

We really have no reason to run away & hide

?

The times of uncertainty & want

?

Marked on a blotted page intact

When the whole world outside is in a rage!

Giving each other a heart attack!

Woods and Trees

Written by: Mario Vitale

In late Spring when heros scream

?

A source of sophistication from faint misery

Inside the thwart hidden silence of the pivotal solace of my mind

With mind blowing excursion toward the legally blind inside

Woods in growing habitation & silence

?

Woods in distant pathways derived from a slight bite in solace

?

After a warm fire woods will then stand tall amidst uncertainty

Is is where one could often sport for game

Hunters in woods will drive you totally insane in brain

In extreme situations the wood can be an untimely climatic disaster to fathom

?

Woods

?

In significant direct correlation through storms in danger arms wide opened

Woods can create a swift barrier of thoughtful change,

A romantic encounter by which the lover shall stray

Is there any other mental nor mere philisophical way

?

Nature lies dormant amidst its beckoning call

With a swift viable pulse derived after the fall

Transformed by silence of thought provoked listening elm & pine

Created in enriched diplomacy from God by his great design

?

God again speaks through me from the sound of a wolf intact

?

He completes his journey through stregnth by which to resist

Woods

We scenic scope in vast briars taunt

In vegetation swine with sukken asps which haunt

?

Vanquished moss covered up in grey filtered steam

?

An approaching visible light to follow a dream

A captivated look into the woods

Engulfed in moss green briars torn asunder

Trees fallen in decorated colors

?

In the dead of Winter leaves tumble to the ground

?

With mice and men walking alone

On a crooked path filled with rocks & twigs

Such as a bushel filled with acorns & figs

Within desolation there crys a fever pitch

Trees in silence

Trees in a ditch

Silence in thought provoking beckoning call

A combersom message that negates a stall

With a figure of speech twisted in a dream turned nightmare

Why should we even bother or for that matter really care

Trees in a Bob Ross brightened country portrait sway feel

Trees can define sullen wounds that sometime bind

Make good use of your time within sullen asps which chime

Throughout its darkened portal without having restraint

Trees can exhibit a dire need to express

With just a little love and a whole lot of tenderness

Meditation through barbed wire fences filled up in tears

Absorbed in concrete fenders filled in ellaborate decorum cheers

Switching full gears from sullen tears to that of darkened fears.

Blood soaked drops of resin dew

Into sweat found nothing new

Shadows prance yet something sticks like glue

In battered soil proclaims a dedication

Amancipation

?

The thrill will seek through both fire & explain

Let me further explain:

One in twain yet marked on its blotted page yet clearly intact

The pain of refusal of sod amidst its wooden axe

?

In flowers ardent resin twain povides a shade

In temporal cure for pain amidst the flames

As tired as a wretched man I claim we stake to scene

In soaked clothes of leaves soaked in debris

?

Within timeless cue of sympathy

Shattered beneathe the leaves the falling debris

In fruition a braided skeleton etched in modern art

?

In reluctance toward the forbidden tree we get ripped apart

?

For she lit that inner spark to what it was I have been waiting for !

Give Me Shelter From The Storm

Written by: Mario Vitale

With faces in the window having storms in the night

?

You gave me promises they gave me pain

When will we ever live to understand this game

Give me shelter from the storm within cause we may never live again

In shattered dreams brought through its timely theme

?

Many are still wandering alone in the darkness of night

?

A plate of desire poured out with a creme sauce of desolation

?

At the mountain top the unique summit has a keen sense of view

Through ardent Spring lingers through a papal elect few

It's sought after portal of death as glue

Shutters through the spark at morn,

?

Some would even bother to curse the very day they were actually born;

?

A sought after portal which breathed in death

Yet still marked on its blotted page very much fully intact,

?

Working too hard can give anyone an instant heart attack

Smoke filled rooms filled up in fetters cry of full forced desolation;

In combersome threats the chief negotiator left,

A fields of dreams coming apart at the seams

?

A port in storm through emmense pain where through,

?

Give me shelter from the storm,

Amidst total sadness with stillness we soon learn to reflect

Just as in some twilight sun that has tainted my inner vision

Perhaps its in some one track mind that was fully set on some mission

?

The certain timely strain on the heart can light its inner spark;

?

Give me shelter from the storm amidst the sequence of outer pain,

In pain to harm the weary soul in which one can helplessly lose all control

?

Amidst viable dreams proned in an onslaught filled preminition

The sought after portal to death,

Yet still again marked on a blotted page fully intact

In timeless combersome threats toward their negotiable left

?

A field of dreams coming apart at its seams

?

Give me shelter from the storms of life amidst its inner strife

Amidst sadness within stillness will learn to reflect;

Just as in a twilight sun that has tainted my inner vision

Perhaps its in a one track mind that's head out on a mission

?

That certain spark within a strain on a heart can light a timely spark

?

Give me shelter from its storm

Very much haunted by an eclipse of the sun

Through a quaint rehearsal in its timeless cue

In distinguishing truth dismissed from its ultimate error

?

Many will escape into a quadratic motif through that of choice

?

A world filled still fixed in telling lies within its tormented souls

Broken skulls with fragmentation of vile demise

That quick fix challenge just not to have to deal with reality.

Aura

Written by: Mario Vitale

Shades of pine grafted in again resign

Shattered pine in elm certain grove alone

My meadow had a thorn certain credit

The factual harm of its heartless swarm

Featured within in the created design with pine

Eyes sharpened as a willow in garb

The tornado sequence has even the fog alone

Again tempors fly like never before

Blatant lies have come at no surprise

In parts unknown an aura of repute to harm

Sound the alarm in fetters arm

Choirs of saints in regard to its beckoning drawn

Empire strain inside my brain fragments of cure

The surface of the sun has tainted my vision with harm

Sound the alarm agiain my faithful friend by whom we can depend

Shattered glass on the parchment floor

Aura

An impulse deep in regards to the heart

Shades of pine will line the volume of scattered pillows

A willow in derision you made a final decision

A thought provokoing reason to believe in

Shattered memory's in the moments of innocence with a plight of disbelief

We have soon turned over a brand new leaf

Timeless peaks in a swelll shattered fragments from within

A great design still sublime in its timeless parts the heart

Aura

Jim Morrison had it

Janis Joplin couldn't stop it

Jimi Hendrix sought this quick fix

An unbellievable call being caught in the mix!

Angel

Written by: Mario Vitale

 

?

From a distance the sound of feathers

A whole host of words often whispered

As if you haven't already heard his saving message

In bitter silence we slowly become unshackled

From this lying bitter place of cold ego's

Then angel spreads her wings out on windows peak

She then keeps silent from inside her swell;

At its cold whispers haunting to dwell

Many keep to themselves not wanting to be alone

Then a cold chill sends a rage down my spine tingling like off the vine

In time the sun heats up out on waters edge devides

Many a demon would so often run away & hide

Angels totally surrenders out on its night scene

A brandished web of forbidden design,

For some the angel would lie in wait to deceive

In triumphant sounds of musical magestic beings light the scene

We our still here to help egnite its flame

While the entire world outside lies helplessly insane

Out on its playing field some have no game,

?

When our generation dies so does the other,

The angel of darkness will seek to inhabit its light

Shackled from a memory on a certain quest nor plight
