Corona Corrodes Cohesion

Armed with abundance, infinity dictates
Charmed by assurance of blossoming supply
Fruitful hands encircle orchard's offering
Boughs bestow nourishment ripe flesh provides

Harrowing hunt, road collides with horizon
Narrowing options ominously herald hardship
Frantic hands grab due to doomsday prediction
Equity halted by maneuvers of manic narcisists

Though their cottages may not be grand

Premium Member The Forest, Never to Return
March came in like a lion
And never let up, not really 
The children, Markie and Stu, spent most of their day outside
Except, usually, for a quick lunch and a hurried hug

In the country, the darkness is like a blanket
It covers...Read More

Premium Member I Find Myself to be this Longing

I can’t get the moors
out of my skin;
me the indirect descendant of Jim Bowie,
the wild colonial boy
now planted like a 
‘Wandering Jew’ in a pot,
in tame Ohio.
Planted in a State
where few venture
far from their high school roots.

The moors grind you

Courtesy climate change

I would never wish to exchange

way out of range
far to balmy, undoubtedly

Once thermometer readings rise

rEQuiem for a nightmare
Imagine Earth itself to be just another Troy, from which, after having raged
In countless battles from Tyre to Megiddo has not been conquered, only aged
And now, having defeated the Spartan race, destroying Priam’s home
Odysseus is captain of a spacecraft with...Read More

A parent is a shotgun
A parent is a shotgun
protecting households and acres,
it turns on enemies without question, a trigger pulled at foul friend.

A parent is a cloud 
craning neck from afar -
revealing sun to enlighten, then rain to dampen mood but nourish, replenish.

A father...Read More

He is on his riding mower.
He looks like me,
only he owns a rich man's house,
a garden measured in acres -
his skin is better.
No picket fences; this is upscale America.
Long drives and old stone walls, gated.
A cultural dream
pioneering into new luxury,

"The Periwinkle Time"

Blues crushed prepossessing Violet
Lavender starbursts 
sharp as diamonds
undressed, a soul preys 
with black as crow feathered lashes
that rim the open mirrors 

There in the Pierian Reviviscence of Periwinkle
within each twin reflection 
auroral Jade unveils 
a Silent

Gleaming wager’s chart spells filmy odds

To forfeit modicums of ground for vaster 
Acres wider than the fabled Midas shore.

No curse greater than lost chances fair
Baked and gilded to enchant and deke,

Educating Bigfoot, Part I
This story begins with Julio Jones,
a logger who worked trees in the Cascades,
never married or had a family,
he was a loner, that just was his way.

Now he was no hermit, by any means,
he would show up at the town festivals,

Lost Time Doesn't Circulate
Lost time doesn’t circulate
I was having a hard time finding my light switch in the dark

There are these small grassy islands 
in-between the sectional lots of cars;
you would presume that nesting geese 
would select these spaces
above all other less green choices,
but in the mall parking area
where acres of concrete march
toward distant outlets,

Memory houses soul asylum vestige...
where complex edifice once anchoring
venerated Glen Elm demesne once stood,

Small rolling hills, valley plots,
nothing regimented,
graves not scattered, but placed
among natural features.
It’s beautiful here
especially in the Fall.
The Maples are tall and burning bright.

There are new graves among the old.
I thank all of them
for being here before me.
Not that I could...Read More
