Premium Member On a positive note

Maybe this is the time to stop and reflect
To sit in silence and grasp the moment
To stop all the rushing and running around
To ponder about our inner self, discover hidden talents!
To practice just 'being' in the here and now

COULDN'T ENTER THE DOOR TOGETHER
. COULDN’T ENTER THE DOOR TOGETHER
Through the lanes we walked with the rose hedges side by side
Sharing the ultimate intimacy
With the swinging of our arm-in-arm
Towards the door of entry 	
Into the vudoing volucompul marrital acts
Ecstasy was our priority

Premium Member Atmospheric inferno
Boisterous clouds are churning, roiling air-mass in warm updraft
Declaring on callous inhabitants of earth, a dark ferocious war 
Manifesting malevolent force, imposing anger on spatial norms,
Conspiring with anguished winds to invigorate violent storms.

Colossal is their expanse that threatens the rise...Read More

Coronavirus Came From China
By Franklin Price

Coronavirus came from China
At least that's what they say
Matters not, where it came from
It's with us here today

Has spread through human contact
For a cure there's a dearth
There are many dead and dying
In most every place...Read More

MAN
MAN


Man is a half-finished creature,
Unlike a woman, complete in every way.
He needs completion with another  -
Will cross oceans without delay,
Confront all obstacles to get her, 
His other half so hidden away.

Left alone he starts to grow  -
Becomes a...Read More

The Lectures
I was strolling down a side street of our little town last night.
Did I say strolling, no that’s wrong; I was a sad and sorry sight,

Baudrillardian Echo


I awoke this morning with a profound vision of a painting. 
A sort of Baroque ensemble of consequence, still lingering. 
I've put it to pen, since it's quicker than painting.

Dear Mother Earth

For all my poor judgement
And indifferent acts
Against the will of your perfection
Though my path is the road to renewal
It is not enough to warrant your forgiveness

MY FINAL FAREWELL

Engaged poseurs of splendor poised to tame
a serpent’s bite in peaceful games to fool
those blinded by attractions faulty fame 
in homage to their king’s deceitful rule.

The Cynic on Prayer and Longevity

The cause of all longevity insists
my atheist gerontologist
is the science we now call Genetics, 
with its amazing double helix
and which is transmitted by sex
which grateful humans prefer next
to any other pleasurable method
and to which they are indebted.
The evidence therefore is...Read More

NO WAR IS LEGITIMATE


 No war is legitimate,
neither defense nor conquest
defense of what is not attacked
conquest is not a legitimate act ...
There is no legitimacy in invasion,
no war is holy war
everyone kills themselves without reason
everyone acts as hypocretes ...
Nothing that takes your value

Show kindness; it is such an easy thing!

The ripples of it can extend for miles

from thoughtful acts or simply from our smiles.

Strive daily to make somebody's heart sing!
