Love Takes A Bow
I look at the money,
  asking—what’s it all mean

From the toys to the honey,
  and the years in between

I look at the statements,
  as my love takes a bow

Thanking God my abatement,
  although late—came about

Unconditional Paternal Love Toward Shana Punim
Screaming writhing violent
uncontrollable spasms of abandonment
immediately followed her (like Mary's lamb)
where e'er she went
verbal communication attempt didst rent
ear piercing outpouring

barrage heard clearly by vested gent,
a bajillion miles away e'en
stymying the likes of Lois Lane, Clark Kent
or special ABC letter writ...Read More

A cyclone and a whirlwind, 
         a twister of a typhoon;
        capricious, turbulent,
        winds destructive.

Premium Member Purr-fect House Cat
There's an old woman that lives in a house full of cats;
they're all so lovable and fat, they will steal your heart.

Premium Member Cultural Blindness
In psychology and communications theory
We notice experiences of cognitive/affective dissonance--

What an anthropologist might note
as a cultural legacy of cognitive blindness--
epically unfortunate events

And a health therapist 
might not notice as a pathological orthodoxy
preventing mere health objects of history
from acting and voting

Premium Member Canada's Extreme Weather

Canada's hottest day, July 1937, out of sight
Yellow Grass, Saskatchewan, reached 113 Fahrenheit
Sizzling is an understatement
Must've begged for abatement
Phew! Walking round in undies must've been quite a delight

Hard As Iron
L-et your decision be hard as iron, 
U-sing no abatement of severity; 
I-n the midst of doubt and fear, 
S-trong action shows your intensity. 
I-mplacable or hard as iron, 
T-he intention is truly firm; 
O-beying the Lord Almighty doesn't make...Read More

Premium Member Light Particle
Light, defined as electromagnet
radiation, photon particles.
Visible light with intensity, propagation and frequency.
Light wavelength of spectrum and polarization.

Fire, a fiery combustible caused known substance.
Bio-luminescence sea creatures a glow with bio-light.
Fireflies are flickering their night lights.
Sun’s light fuels green plants by photosynthesis.

Premium Member EcoPolitical ReDevelopment
Thomas Kuhn wrote about scientific revolutions
as if scientific theories evolved
at sedately Business As Usual (BAU) pace
until some revolutionary conjecture,
heuristic truth-statement,
suddenly changed scientific metaphysical landscapes,
shaking up orthodox constellations
within and between paradigmatic multicultural relationships,
shifting AnthroWisdom's exegetically proven platform
for understanding and identifying reality
within...Read More

Premium Member August Storm
It started the 8th of June
moving away from too familiar
into too alien,
finding no sane oasis between.

Vibrant greens relentlessly fade
to wilting mono-academic drought.
Brown patches emerge with dulled loss of inspiration
of what might have been a family
an ecological home
a contenting pasture for...Read More

Hitting the Target
Here’s my poem for your perusal,
Though I’ll not grand first refusal.
It’s your privilege to reject it,
But I’ll not let you correct it.

Words transmitted to the page
I have no way to judge or gauge
If others deem a worthwhile read;
Despite that fact,...Read More

Sincerely Yours,
Dear friend ,

The world means nothing.
Its set in flames.
Even worse we roam with cold hearts trying to look the part,
in this guilded age.

This is something I wish not to be a part of.
I no longer want to be another soul...Read More

Lines on forehead are deepening.
No signs of abatement
of fire in our bellies.

The hunger we inherited
is only comforting
the mouthless.

Broken laughs.
Strange bedfellows
chopping off the murals from the lips.

A body rots,
Maggots fly.

Negotiations are still on.
Who will dissect the legend
to find the cause of...Read More

Happiness Is (acrostic)
Happiness is what you take away from your life as good.
All things must have a plus and a negative to survive.
Prophecy says God allowed evil to exist, destroy it he could.
Pure goodness without evil will someday arrive.
I wish that only...Read More

Poetry Soup
I feel it within me
bubbling, hissing 
beneath the surface
a cauldron of ideas
and I get the urge
to take a big spoon and mash them all together
stir ‘em up, squish ‘em down
adding a dash of comma,
a Pinch of misplaced Capitalization
and a whole...Read More

The Reaction
I lay here in the bunk
all made of white
a sharp twinge of my viscera
a small request I make
to take some ease.

In she sweeps on quiet feet
to bring some abatement
without a soul
she trods with a cold heart.

In my stream the fire...Read More
