My special child, full of confidence
Serenades by his tunes’ preference
Enthralling my heart he does convince.

He belts out with gracious persistence
Then prodding me by his insistence
I join him for a duet...Read More

Premium Member Creative Power ReConsidered
without patriarchal narcissism
but more matriarchally cooperative, 
polyculturally impassioned,
is not necessarily multiculturally anti-theistic.

but could remain androgynously agnostic
to include more widely pan-theistic
and more deeply suggest poly-theistic healthy wealth

For neither "Him" nor "Her", is what "I" and "Me" once were.

Back in the days of "Us", "We" never did discuss,

How "He" and "She" ignore, that "Yours" took "s" from...Read More
