bA Door

In this



Like a tiger

In a cage


To get out

Like a prisoner


For pardon


All the fear

With the power

Of a bottle

Or a pill

I wonder if

He considered

Was there


A door?
Barry A. Lanier



bA Feeling I Can't Forget

In the summer of life,
By chance we first met.
The day I can't remember,
The feeling I can't forget.

My heart soon melted,
Then appeared in my throat.
A young lad, deeply in love,
At the time, didn't even know.

Music and laughter,
Visions and dreams.
Rocking on the frontporch,
Facing landscapes of bright green.

How much I loved her!
Never really telling her how deep.
Together we'd laugh, together we'd weep,
Abide in a love, and friendship so deep.

On a warm, summer's day,
My true love was sent.
A winter's chill filled my spirit,
As homeward, she went.
Barry A. Lanier



bA First I Won't Forget

Shifting his weight
Separated by the glass
Unbraiding his story
Detailing fine points
Long ago left out
Decidedly forgotten
By those who could
Change a man's life
Through teller's chute
A chocolate ice-cream
One smile and tear
Fifteen years old
He arrived then
Now 20 years later
Four long days
We talked
In his cube
Oral revelations
Of the prison
My life was in
Two weeks later
A thank you note
You are the only
Visitor in 20 years
Thank you for
Your kindness
My first
Barry A. Lanier



bA Higher Plane

In the celestial and terrestial,
We arise.
On a plane higher than life,
Yet irresistably gathered.

Sealed in shadowy moods,
Yet held to Providence.
Even as vanity might yield,
To wisdom.
In due time.

As the laurel lowers it's green,
So falls the dew.
Gently, insidiously around.
False wisdom fosters humility,
Solemn yet sound.

A confluence of life's experience,
Acceptance of pain,
Now yields,
To Providence.
And to a higher plane.
Barry A. Lanier
