Here are examples of Tony's work:

A Snow Queen

Brilliant sunshine
leaps from a newly
lain blanket of
fluffy popcorn snow
Fierce eyes
challenge me
comets of snow
streak across
sparkling blue skies
Lightning bright rows
of stately porcelain
melting snow
on a steamy brow
brilliant sunshine
you are the snow
queen

sadness
comes and goes
ebbs and flows
sadness
always grows
never knows
sadness
___________________________

Hand in Hand

I hear the horns a-blowing
sweeping cross the land
gentle breezes bright blue skies
m'lady hand in hand.

nothing else matters
only two old friends
m'lady hand in hand.

I hear the horns a-blowing
calling me home
m'lady hand in hand

I be in heaven
with m'lady
hand in hand.

I Will Never be Whole Forever

I will never be whole forever
I have dreamt
a winters smile
I have dreamt
the summer moon
I have dreamt
golden days
I have dreamt
sweet caresses
I have dreamt
my lady love
I have dreamt
the trumpets call.
I will never be whole forever.

fade to black

in the fading light
do i see
all the darkness
washing over me

nothing more
do I know
falling face first
in the snow

crimson stain
spreads about
spring rains
wash it out.

steam arising
from the maw
lonely dog
licks his paw

in the darkness
do i see blinding light
washing
over me

Congratulations Tony ....!!!

.jeanne...
... and his words purge up and outward,
expelled and onward through desert dust swallowed,
sands he says that gorge on simple sensibilities.
And, now he spits fragments, grit, extended vowels and elongated syllables
over cracked lips. Their sounds fall
piling round his boots…
