Premium Member -sight of our love-
dance with me this rainy night,
feel my skin as we embrace-
your barren fawn nape i trace,
i hold you achingly tight;
the sight of our love is right

for love is never contrite-

Battlefield Of Love's Torment
Achingly, I watch as you frequently fall
For the idyllic notion of unconditional love
The dream, the desire, the fantasy
Drawn, inexplicably, to the potent flame
Of one who ignites the spark
You learn from her, confide in her
Losing yourself
As she reheats each chamber of...Read More

egg of memory
those worlds are lost to me now,
once achingly close,
like yesterday's rain,
but, will I see you then,
in this egg of memory,
cracked open with a sigh,
fleeing like smoke,
with a faint smile on a face,
ghosting in kodachrome?
ah, but our arrow of time,
affliction of...Read More

on change

in that quiet place, faint
amongst the soft chatter,
the drizzle of little things hanging,
or the operations of daily dispute;
i’ve dipped down into the trough of self,
indulged in uninterrupted reverie,
as hallucinogen and spirit slow dance, 
or time passes like a slow...Read More

Whenever you slight someone, apologize
If you say something untrue about someone, apologize
If you hurt someone's feelings, apologize
If you bring shame upon your family name...

Apologize to Mom and Dad, and to your siblings

Sing sad songs to a wanderlust child born

Premium Member It Escapes Me
It escapes me why that torso,
that lithe, achingly crafted torso,
surely created to enhance all human delight
lies THERE... one searing moment from my coiled hand,
wafting incense and surrender.

And it escapes me why happenstance,
blithe, frivolous happenstance,
tonight chose me...
so flawed, so ordinary...
to be...Read More

Sacred Spaces
Amidst the sacred places
I've witnessed distraught faces
A virtual Kaleidoscope of races
History often traces
Many are hungry and cold
Politicians bought and sold

Achingly, our God embraces
He competes to fill vacant spaces
Ima try to honor his plan
His kingdom is meant for man
But it's turning...Read More

I run uphill for some way,
mostly on an easy pavement,
and partially on a jarring dirt track,
I resentfully enjoy a route
against which I am free to struggle.
The path gradually starts to flatten out,
I breathe heavily with relief,
strain not regretted.
I think of...Read More

A magic cat
  did stretch and yawn

Premium Member Changing Systems
I'm reading this book called
"Systems Thinking for Social Change"
by David Stroh.

Although this is not his paradigm of systemic choice,
He talks about WinWin strategizing
for optimal outcomes
Rather than WinLose compromises
for suboptimal conservation
of the miserably under-performing status quo.

A. To strengthen partnerships,
clarify potential cooperative...Read More

The ghost of you went graciously,
And gratefully I watched it go.
And silently, the solitude 
Replaced the face I used to know. 

The thought of you evaded me,
The years were knives and time the stone. 
Your sharpness softened in my sleep;

I slept all day and woke to the rain,
With the low purr of thunder rolling around my temples.
Through my open window rose, darkly, the scent of the earth,
Cool, ripe, metallic,
Revived by the unforecast shower.

I waited, the airless gap stretching wider,

Harp and flute

Fingers bled of love by the strings of the harp,
Eyes filled with tears, mingled in the drops of blood,
As the flute elated sucked and kissed the slaughtered,
Love and hate, tears and blood, such are the broken hearts.
