I saw your grandma
she was buck naked
in a Buick
and I thought 'hey you’.

I saw you on a 
`who's your baby-daddy' show
you were in the audience.
You wore a pic 
of the killer Ernesto Guevara
on your T -
I thought 'hey you’.

Premium Member PLAIN LINES

Plain is not easy
Timely lines sketch air
Plain can feel feisty
Verse in matching flair

Simple is easy
If beauty crafts fit
Just write more truly
Where truth tints wit

Joy wears a sleek style
As rhymes churn motifs
Touch knows a grand smile
In  language active

Just sit and...Read More

Indo-Pak Border

Soldiers strengthen the fence of iron wires.
Border looks like a fair face, disfigured by
smallpox. Virus is still active. Infiltrators 
crawl through the mist into India’s heart.
They are brave, but brainless.

A myriad of men waste their sweat in the
nearby militant camps,...Read More

Premium Member On Art As I See It
Blessed are those rulers that kindly share their greatness
Blessed are the rich that gladly share their wealth
Blessed are the truly wise that share their understandings.

Though in the real world, artists find, very rare.

Twice blessed are the rare places ruled

Premium Member Plague Year
Some will pass away
Some see the skull beneath
The skin,
Others will feel,
Living or dying,
A certain stillness
In the air,
A certain absence of movement,
Except perhaps,
When looking out of a window,
Leaves swaying gently 
In the breeze 
Or a blaze of colour
From early spring flowers,
But...Read More

Premium Member Healthier Directions
If you have some negative judgment
aimed directly at me,
I prefer,
in fact require,
demand you verbally
and directly confront me
and only me
with that distancing blame,
assaulting my ignorance
and failures of compassion,
too active dispassion,
furthering Earth's emerging win/lose dissonance,
toxic climates
and egocentric narcissism;

Or, informed more fully by...Read More

Premium Member My MS Is Not Active
The neurologist explained that my brain lesion was not connected to my MS 
Could it be related to tension headaches?
Could it be benign?
Could it be cancer…
While the world’s voice vehemently opposed to the virus 
I sit…scared to think…

Today's Sounds -- Music
Today's Sounds

Music rolls off the banjo, bluegrass
Active cheery sound, gland it’s around,
Folk music in little town passed down by word of mouth;
Family remembers and other people too, and songs abound.

Symphony sounds dynamic notes through the grand hall,
Aria Nessun Dorma rapturous...Read More

Are you feeling sad,
wanting your faith community,
democratic society,
to live more...
live more deeply...
live more widely...

Faithful to wealthy health, yes,
and I wonder if you are angry,

Premium Member And Still We Search
I'll be turning 68 this spring
and still looking for a health-wealthy home.

This feels remarkably like a younger traveler's game,
with less capital-acquisition baggage
and toxic furniture
and uncooperative tools.

for an ecotherapist
to be so Earth-habitat unrooted.

Not to indulge in self-shaming,
yet my youngest son,

When asked
by my nephew
for an essential reading list
for PermaCultural Therapeutic Design,
my Taoist thoughts went back
to Unitarian-Universalist
Yin/Yang pre-history,
when Earth produced a theologian,
Dr. Thomas Starr King (1824-1864)
reaching out for non-violent dialogue
across all global healing cultures.

This 1800s Dr. King 
would-be global peacemaker

What I want,
probably need,
from people of compassionate
positive faith
in sacred covenants
in healthy energy democracies,
in cooperative co-empathic learning systems:

Impressive co-investments
rather than depressive divestment,
Integral cooperative ownership
more than autonomous competitions,
Intimately transparent management
multiculturally vulnerable mediation
among and within Earth's holonic
living webs of compassionate communication,
bicameral healthy/wealth

I wanted to fly and be a fighter pilot

From my youngest age

Shooting enemy Soviet planes down

Before they could nuke us

The sky called to me

A lofty cavern of air and clouds

But my dream was just a dream

Freedom failed in futility as the MS disease brought

Why I scream every suffering second!
