Love Is Blind (Acrostic)

Last night I laid quietly by your side.

Only the sound of your breathing could be heard,

Very soft and low over the silence of night.

Enchanted was I by this simple act.


I thought back to when we first met,

So long ago in what seems like a previous life.


Beauty of your body and spirit enthralled me,

Love at first sight captured me,

In the many years since, it has not abated.

Never questioning fate we have become one–

Destined for eternity–as lovers in Heaven.

Fold Into My Arms (Senryu)

Fold into my arms
‘Tis were you’ve always belonged
Love is in the stars

A Casual Glance

A casual glance,

Sending whispers of love and lust,

Eyes averting eyes,

Embarrassed at the thought of capture.

An innocent smile,

Sunlights glimmer off ivory mirror,

Seductive and sensual,

Beckoning an invitation.

A brush of skin,

Accidental yet intentional,

Goosebumps cascading,

Erupting hot and lascivious.

A pounding heart,

Rhythmically offering itself,

Longing to be cradled,

In the impetuous throes of passion.

A tender kiss,

Long and warm on silky lips,

Without so much as a word,

Two become one.

Blindly Following

Blindly following

Taking their words as gospel

Some would call it faith

A recipe for failure

When it comes to politics

Is it not our job

To be informed and question

Weeding out their lies

If it’s not then we are doomed

Like so many empires past

We Live In A Time Of Paranoia And Prejudice

We live in a time of paranoia and prejudice,

Danger lurking around every corner,

Evil in strangers faces we pass on the street.

Every act of senseless violence is labeled terrorism,

Can not a murder just be a murder?

Despicable as it is this act has transcended our history.

Must religious affiliation define every murderous act?

Must every act of violence be by the hands of a terrorist?

Vigilance is indeed prudent

Though hypervigilance is divisive.

This world if full of people with mental instability.

Those disillusioned by their circumstances.

Many feeling small or invisible

Seeking attention by the most horrible means.

Christians and Jews are among them

Though they are not so quickly label terrorists.

Our government is in collusion with the media

Spreading fear and hysteria, but to what end?

Perhaps to convince us to willingly forfeit our freedoms

All under the guise of greater protection.

Just realize that once gone

Freedoms lost will be difficult to recapture.

Coolness Of Morning (Haiku)

Coolness of morning
Welcomed after summer’s heat
Nature’s refreshment

Reeling from Turmoil (Tanka)

Reeling from turmoil

A whirlwind of a day

I’m dazed and confused

So much in so little time

Its time to relax and breathe.

A Hummingbird’s Wings (Haiku)

A hummingbird’s wings
Fast as the fleeting moment
Never to return

This country

Spiraling down

Grand Experiment

Being stretched very thin

Perhaps it has run its course

Government is broken

Diplomacy dead

General angst

Future bleak

What next



~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~


To Protect And Server

To protect and serve

Whole communities in fear

Race should not matter

But it does and always has

More so in this day and age

Policing has changed

More vicious, less tolerant

They’re militarized

Controlling people by fear

Instead of using respect

When did this happen

Jackboots on the peoples necks

Tanks in city streets

Science fiction is now real

Welcome to the brave new world
