~It's Out There~

Green colored field 
A flower without the sun 
Wilts from distrust 
now washed away 
by the man storm

of a newborn's smile
in mother's arms
another miracle
of the  universe

Now    hear sports prime time
“Amazing!    Spectacular!”
Just two of the words
“Hey!    You gotta be kiddin’”
Does he know how to play ball!”

“One of the greatest”
Some say he IS the greatest!”
Just incredible!”
“Bob    that’s some kinda atha-lete!”
“Three hundred pounds of muscle”

“It’s a miracle!”
“You mean HE’S a miracle”
“He’s at the fifty –
Forty    thirty    twenty-five
Reverses field at the five

The magic words spilling forth
At top of his lungs
Had you pressed the mute button
Just another game

But the fans love noise
The roar will deaden the mind
Loudmouth has said squat
Has stated the obvious
Big mouth says    “Watch but don’t think”

I am an avid football fan - especially college football - the poem is not about disliking football, but about some - not all - of the brainless announcers.

Miracle Sticks

Onto the blank page, Pour forth thoughts; ink lines of black; Thought forms of fluid; A calligraphers ink-scape A magical miracle.

Madonna and Child

the eternal form
cradles her child
unbidden miracles attend
her smile of  love

Trembles and Thrills

Trembles and Thrills

Thoughts stir memories—
that tall oak door down the hall.
When I peeked inside,
trembles and thrills engulfed me;
beating heart filled up with pride.

Visioned there within—
perfect gift beyond compare.
Tears filled up my eyes.
Trembles and thrills engulfed me;
feelings I could not disguise.

What a lovely sight—
heartfelt joy of pure delight!
Miracle to see—
first grand babe for me was born!
Trembles and thrills engulfed me.

upon first
seeing the towering redwoods
so awed I whispered
a living cathedral

Moments That Matter

Moments that matter 

Yield moments of clarity 

Revealing false pride 

Releases shackles of shame 

And more moments that matter
