The ultimate freedom
Do you know the value of life?
You don't but you do

Balloons floating through the air
What a sight to see
Who let them go?
To drift around so aimless and so free
Did a bride let them go on her wedding day
Or some children do the same by accident, at play
The balloons are in...Read More

And I Go On
Woke up around 2.
 Dark and quiet. Just me and the moon.
 Too quiet.
 Almost wrong.
 I feel the other half of the bed. Empty.  
Just a cold space where you should be.
Thunder heard in the distance. It's somewhere...Read More

After crossing paths with a parent of two of my former students 
it instantly occurred to me…

I immediately remembered her smile and how her family always found a way

Stan Ridgeway Song
The readjustment was the hardest part
Not leaving the war zone
Or coming home back to his country
And to his wife and family and friends
But actually readjusting to the fact
That fact that he had no legs
He left them back in Iraq
Not as...Read More

I should hate to lose them in a freak accident.
They have brought me much covert pleasure.
Like shell-less crabs;
they have leased their homes, 
rested and moved on like itinerant workers,
Leonardo da Vinci was fascinated by them,
he understood that if you could...Read More

To live In The Moment
To live in the moment
Means we get to see things first hand
Made by the masters hand.
This is by no means an accident.

From any where we stand.

Means we get to see things...Read More

Premium Member DESTINY
Have you ever wondered about destiny
and which of these is true?
Do we have free will, 
are we controlled by fate
or is life an intermingling of the two?

Do we have as much choice as we like to think

Feeling Numb And Out Of Place
I never thought I would have to say that my youngest brother passed away
A freak accident took his life
Always thought that I would die first.
Feeling numb and out of place
Can’t see anything but his face
Constantly missing and mourning him 
Hoping...Read More

Sitting in traffic on my cell phone
Thought perhaps I might be accident-prone
Got softly run over
Minor injuries to my rover
Now just sit here playing on my xylophone

Premium Member The Look Outside
And as I look behind me
Where the hell did I come from
A night of thoughtful thinking
Has left me lying numb.

Once a youth in innocence
Asked tell me why I'm here
Not what was told you long ago
Something to quash your fear.

You love to play them. 

When you treat me badly, 
I let you, as I thought that meant…
I was loving you.

Conquering Pain
(Through Mental Toughness)
Written: by Miracle Man
I try not acknowledging that nemesis pain,
I view pain as a temporary irritation.
I won’t surrender, letting it become my bane,
Unless brought on by some ablation.

Any lacerations, I’ve always viewed as minor,
Whether stapled, sutured, glued...Read More

Premium Member CALAMITY JANE

Everyone was staring
Frozen in their seat
Down the stairs
Made quite an entrance
Calamity Jane
Without her underwear

Her buxom figure
Generously in full view
For everyone to see
Down the stairs
All watched Calamity Jane
In her birthday suit

The whole incident
Might have gone unnoticed
But no such luck
Frozen in their...Read More

A blank canvas in Space
At a selected Place
In Time.

‘Do your best work.’

An object perceived…

In a dream
A thought
A vision
Or sensed.

To see, and desire 
Right or not, a beginning
Observed, wanted by intelligence 
Identified as applicable.

Right cause
Act, this Time
This Place
This Space.
