It is that season again 
When men are men 
In the upper class ready to defend 
Their social status as leaders 
With innocent images of being sweeter
Finding ladies to be courted 
Despite not being able to afford it 
Girls flip...Read More

Pandemic, A Test Of Faith
Written: by Miracle Man

So many things once deemed academic,
become important in this pandemic.
Those many things we've taken for granted,
now find many people quite disenchanted.
Life is fastly changing with each sunrise,
and each day brings an unwanted surprise.

Premium Member Planning for Grace
Last night I arrived very late
for a GRACE planning team meeting.
GRACE's mission advocates against
all things racist,
whether systemic
or the normal chaos of antipathy
and sin 
against everyday non-violent win-win
platforms political and economic
sacred and secular
sociological and neurological.

I stepped into discussion of a thesis

Premium Member Time ruins dreams
‘If I have the time’ is the phrase that ruins dreams,
If you listen to the excuses of those who fail, it seems.
It’s never due to talent or potential in their lives
It’s always due to time, upon which their failure thrives.

From its very discovery
by William Herschel in 1781,
the seventh planet in our solar system
was fraught with controversy,
specifically the wide latitude
of its nonstandardized pronounciation 
deemed by many as crude.
Was it YU-ra-nus, Yu-RAY-nus,
yoo-RAIN-us, or, something worse?
Getting it right was crucial 
in lofty...Read More

Premium Member Intellectual Snobbery
When I was in grade school
I was, already, 
on my leftbrain dominant path
toward acting the intellectual snob.

This, in large part
my best offense,
my trump card, sadly,
against marginalizing prejudice
of our community's non-farmer economic
and political Elite;

Washed And Scrubbed
Intellectual hygiene…
the Poet declines

That dull antiseptic,
that deadens your mind

Once washed and then scrubbed,
the truth a charade

Too Bright To Dim
It’s not about Poetics,
but the meaning it involves

The meter, rhyme, and format,
just tools to then resolve

Great thoughts need little structure,
their light too bright to dim

By any academic mode
—that chokes the voice within

Premium Member Peace Mediating Poetry
Thanks so much for forwarding
these John Paul Lederach stories
of un-learning academic approaches
to peace mediation.

I wonder if you remembered
my ongoing certification process
for justice-restoring mediation
in complex multicultural conflicting histories;
which are typically antithetical to resilient peace
through ongoing safe and healthy relationships.

With this background,

I had two big projects
from 1970 to 1975,
The first,
to earn a usually white Bachelor dual-major degree

as a usually black, brown, red, yellow Mistress nondegree)
