Atlantean Princess

In brightest dream the second older soul traverses

Across ten millennia time times ten

Spires of onyx and pyramids of crystal

The princess adorned in bejeweled gold

Long hair that flows with thought

Eyes of indigo that pierce and warm

Lips of ruby etched in porcelain

Into the ocean Atlantis descended

Through arcane science old when we were apes

She ascended beyond form

Her beauty now eternal

Flame of Moses

From bush came a flame

From flame came the word

From word came holy history

From holy history came the War

From the War came the end of Man

But not the end….


Heavy rain!

Happy frogs!

Golden Bridge

Some are born on a golden bridge and their destination does not matter.

Green Man

He heard the thud that broke his head.

His gold was taken.

His clothes were taken.

In a cloak of dirt he sank ever deeper.

Something in him would not stop as he dreamed green dreams.

His skin became leaves.

His bones became wood.

When he awoke, the man wanted to walk to the town for vengeance.

The green in him wanted roots instead of legs.

Happy City

Honk, honk on the road to the happy city!

So bright, so bright in the happy city!

When I grow up I will go to live in the happy city!

Will you come with me to the happy city?

Let’s all go together in a big pink car to the happy city!



Love thy neighbor

The world is not a neighborhood

Maybe we should build that neighborhood!

Li Bai

Warm wine in a full belly

Yellow moon mirrored in the Yellow River

Sinking in the mirror of water he drowned

His death like his life a struggle with illusion and truth


Cold wind

Warm heart

Giant mountain

Small legs

Long journey

Third Eye

When his third eye opened

He could see the thoughts of others as bluish fractals

Feelings were rippling circles of orange

God’s plan, a web-like, whitish vapor everywhere

Most say he’s mad

A very few are not so sure

Because sometimes he knows

What they think

What they feel

And warnings about the vapor are always correct

Virgin Mary

Heavenly Mother

Thank you for loving us despite our sins

 Zen Kensho

First expansion then….

Immensities within immensities open in waves of joy

Eternities within eternities unlocked

Beautiful but wrong

In satori the truth

 Zen Satori

No small!

No big!

No mind!

WereVerse Universe Baby!

  1. Striking paintings, Hugh. I especially like Li Bai and Kensho. I’m a former colleague of your Dad’s in ATL, and a poet. Do you have a current email for him? Want to send him my new book:


  2. The email I have for my dad in my address book is:

    I hope the above email still works. Thanks for the kind comments about the paintings. Good luck with your book! I have a page that contains the first chapter of my SF novel Half Square and am looking for an agent. But of course everyone is looking for an agent!

  3. cool, good luck!
