Introducing Clayton Clifford Bye

"Clayton Bye is one of the most prolific and talented writers I know. He is an eloquent poet, insightful critic, imaginative novelist, and a self-help expert. The sheer volume of his work makes me dizzy, and he seems comfortable in all genres. From his compelling collection of short stories and essays to fiction winners like "The Sorcerer's Key" and inspirational works like "How To Get What You Want From Life" and "Getting Clear," he seems to find more hours in a day than most writers find in a… Continue

Current Poetry


Happenstance is but a way of words,
The stumbling path of fools;
Yet a trail met in the wooded night
Cares not for weathered rules.

Deaf and dumb goes the traveller
Toward the outward shape;
Glancing not beneath the rock and leaf,
A sketch of the human ape.

But in vapid searching one still learns
To scratch the inner vein.
Eyes roll and bangles burn in that light—
The answers seem insane...

For piercing the learning dark we see
New visions clear and clean,
Struggling with our ever cluttered minds
To grasp what they might mean:

A white-winged horse and a graceful moon
Seek form in mountain fire,
While I, the fool, not too simple yet
Of ornaments do tire.

at contiguous depths
send blue lightning
across clouded voids
and are caught
by red-laced fingers
to recreate
the perfect sound
of a drop of water
splashing on skin.

A Hole In The Clouds

radiant beams
a hole in the clouds

gossamer strands
speak out loud

warmed heart
a child's eyes aglow

soul is livened
I drive slow

A crystal passage from here to there
But no light with which to see.
"So what?" He asks with bitterness,
That door is closed to me.

Her darkness beckons to me
From the distance of a winter night,
To walk upon ancient and unknown shores
Without the use of seeing eyes.

Her grace is cast on the moon,
Black hair glistens in the light,
And with the cold, harsh wind
A teardrop falls into my dream.

Ease by rock so wet and black,
Taste the salt upon her lips;
Keep those hard-found treasures:
The ice-cold stone becomes so thin.

Oh, I can see the beauty,
Or find warmth beneath the darkened land,
But will I ever know from what still pool
Came that pure water in her hand?

Copyright © Clayton Clifford Bye 2009


Secret longings mind-burnt
Now loosed from my soul,
Sweet knives outward slicing
Host-bound on the wind;

Diamond ice time-picked clean
Will melt asunder,
Heart-met in morning hours,
Her dark eyes of joy.

The Town of Me

My days have been
The passing of dreams,
Not quite real clouds
Built of smoke and dust,
Marking each pained
But gritty footstep
With rasping laughter
To steal away
The life-blood of
This aging ghost town,
While colourless
thoughts raised without form
walk through my halls,
echos of silence.
