Premium Member The Supreme Court
Can the world be made better by stacking our Courts
With immoderate friends that we trust share our views?
Is Court’s dignity served, are its verdicts revered,
Does it mean I’m ‘supreme’ when a fluke helps my side?
Is a ‘litmus test bias’ the...Read More

Premium Member Reflection On An Aging Nomad
I finally finished retiring four years ago,
a process that started in my mid-fifties
due to late adopting kids with special needs,
including needs for me to be home
to personally walk them on,
harness them in,
and wheel them back off, their diverse buses
and robotic...Read More

The Angel in Hell
An orchestra of silence,
engulfed by the clever dark, 
a blood-bath of violence, 
triggered by a black remark.

A shadow in a cage,
slave to the devil's task,
a burning flame of rage,
concealed behind a mask.

Abandoning humanity,
and the cruel light of day,
his soul of pure insanity,
feeds...Read More

We Don’t Always Get Up

Born my son 
of youth, 
My pride 
shadowed you, 

Our long talks
 sitting under the stars,
Your wisdom 
learning astounding.

You followed me,
To the sky, 
Your letters, 
 soothed ego,
 in uniform you came,
healthy and strong.

Randomness comes, without...Read More

Good bye to my sorrows 
Hello to my darkness

This whole time I’ve felt unconscious 

Thank you for abandoning me 
Thank you for being so heartless 
You’re selfish 
You’re deceiving

The Evening Bird
I rose from my couch unhappy, as one of the dead, 
Repose reluctant to join me, 
My window shades enticed, to display a truth
So unnatural to refuse, I did abrade myself to look
There!

I Come To You
I come to you as a child,
the process one of aging
from an infant seeking
to an adult knowing,
to an adult yielding
to an adult exulted
who now realizes nothing 
is greater than your endless patience 
and all abiding love.

I lift to you on...Read More

I wonder at what lesson had been taught

Yet, now, each tear I cry seems all for naught - 
mere remnants, never noticed, shared, nor caught,
nor tasted, but...Read More

Premium Member Sometimes love just isn't enough
Upon my life your winter still drizzles
Evoking the morns that arose in despair
And nights that steered dreams into sorrow,

As I sit all alone in valleys of destitute
Where memories haunt pitfalls of yore.

Tender and sweet, you were my ruby rose--
In garden...Read More

Fears of Abandonment

I feel you need
and want me less

and want you,
and like you,
or how about exclusively
peculiarly
curiously love you?

The Intransigent Me

I walk my life on my own terms,
setting the course on the pathway I paved.
I see probing faceless people crowd uncalled,
break the fence of protected privacy, try to pry,
asking incisive questions shredding my persona,
I don’t answer.

They want their footprints I...Read More

Slave to Love
Created to belong to the one soul
For whom my heart would beat
Rhythmic beats of thirsting desires

Since times immemorial
Enjoyed this state of being
A slave to Love!

Submission, abandoning my throne
And even accepting to disrobe my soul
Among gaping crowds,
