Divine jubilant providence unplugged
Inexplicable blessing luckily
avoiding potentially grim fate
finds yours truly coming to grips,
how afterlife did not accommodate

the missus, and/or myself unwittingly
loved ones would never acclimate
reality of our permanent absence,
thus existence all the more I appreciate
and attempt poetically articulate.

Herewith the scenario that defies

family gathering
Family Gathering

He dreaded family gathering and now
he was in the middle of one.

Tried to lasso the wind (Samuel Johnson)
of old slights remembered.

They turned to him called him a coward
always siding with his mother or being absent.

He just sat as not...Read More

Has Been Do Again
Has Been-Do Again

Poorly painted-Thoroughly tainted

Currently consented-Mind absented

Body Becoming-Up summing

Totally Theatrical-Some Sabbatical

Currently incredulous-Pretty Propitious

Enduring end-Should suspend

Could Do-Can You

On display-total dismay

People prevaricated-Ultimately uneducated

Poem preparing-Started sharing

Up dried-So satisfied.

Write more-What for

Rhyming quadruplet-Should let

Four words-New nerds.

Ho ho-Oh no.

My new style of poetry writing.

DISCREPANCIES
Discovered:  Two Ibis at the edge of the lake 
in compatible company of four Canadian Geese
who've absented the gaggle of twenty or more,
daily in command of our grassy slope where they 
come to feed, settle on the benevolent breast...Read More

Who absented himself from a grouchy campaign
Against mass crabbing.

Waiting for My Love
I waited for her with tears in my eyes
and stayed until I couldn’t see the stars
at last to bed I went with my face in gloom
so sad and melancholic i cried in my doom
I long for my love in my...Read More

Irrepresible Nature
Another day ends with insipid sun
One more uncertain season
Another month ebbs slowly invariably gone
One more uninteresting month another reason

Each bulb impressively pushing old soil up
So absented from every winter irritation 
The orchestrated plants unite drinking along nature’s everlasting cup,
Invigorated refreshed,...Read More

Premium Member Her Return
Her return
Written: by Tom Wright

She was like "Ghost Smoke"
emerging from ashes past;

Today's inner likeness,
now sequestered,
from days remembered;

Absented days,
I tallied as grains of sand,
and earlier thoughts of her,
though too few to catalog,
I occasionally recall;

In my eyes,
her new inner beauty makes liars,
of...Read More

absentia
deeply, as i sit, i look far beyond
there exists a whole time before now
knowing, or not what's come upon
i can't seem to recall it somehow

your name, your place, your very face
in my existence mean so much 
i think back, try...Read More

Premium Member God Knew Who, What, When, Where, and How
You drew our names from your deep past
I've never questioned why you did so.
From God, a burden, for you was cast
And absented years caused it to grow.

God allowed me to view your life's change
How you'd matured from sand to pearl.
