Tea
Starting
With grains of sand
Supporting 
In a cup

Pouring water
Over 
Till there is no trace
But murky brown

Top with sweetness
Sugar or condense milk
Smoothing the edges
Bottom to up

Showing its sign of life
Out of darkness

Stirs and spins
Spoon gathering all
To different places and dimensions
Given the lives...Read More

Distance Your Body
It's hard to see the light beyond the dark 
The days so long 
Lost and confused
I wonder what has become of my world
So unsure of tomorrow so scared of today
Wish yesterday was here to save my day
But it ain't that...Read More

Distraught
Always be more to learn
Quickly adapt 
Crushing timelines

Hard to keep up
No matter how much I ask
Still being back 
Where I started

Confused of important or urgent
Cannot make a difference
When everything pushes me
In all directions

Pressue cooker
Waiting to explode
Need to breathe and cry

We the people of this great USA
Are facing Coronavirus today
Coming together by staying away
Stops the transmission, holds infection at bay

Wash your hands often, that's where virus breeds

Anybody Out There
When did compassion become so rare
Today’s world substantially encompassing despair
Too dependent on artificial intelligence
Forced to adapt to only what assures convenience
How can we get back to our natural order
Live off the land and dwell fresh drinking water
Is there anybody out...Read More

It is not that I see no future, she said,
but that I fear the future that I see.
A world where simple contact with another
is to be seen and understood as prelude
to Armageddon, the end of the world

I am tired of the denial
Refusal to face the facts
Not learning from doctor’s reports
Not listening, so that we can plan
What is happening is unfolding,
All around us every day
No matter how it’s minimized,
The virus will have its say
Truth will emerge beyond,
Anyone’s...Read More

Take Five
ADAPTABILITY:  God seemed to have programmed life, in general, to be indiscriminate, allowing all of its good, bad, and ugly to rain upon His creation. God is an equal opportunity employer. Some entities receive 'favor' without regard to merit....Read More

Where am I
Where am I?
 
It’s a new year;
In its first month;
It’s a new day;
Maybe a new season too.
Where am I?

Sitting on an old wooden bench;
Rotted by age and weather, 
Indeed, I’ve survived all five seasons.
This bench is neither safe nor comfortable...Read More

In repertoire of wealth, your lack diminish but rue
Stepping into the new horizon, negativity is set to crunch
Praying for the very next sparkle, the sparkles of hint and clue.

A Woman I Love
A woman I love is summer,
wet skin quite warm on mine.
The flames of passion become her
in sultry nights divine. 
 
She also finds fall pleasing.
With change she does adapt,
lending pleasure in all seasons
with love endless and untapped.
 
Winter will not...Read More

Sketches of a dream
Stretching deformation of clouds by audacious desire,
firmaments of illusion to admire.
Rational texture of scientific declaration,
reflections in mirrored capacity for the nation.
The mighty ego and its desperation to exist,
relativities adapt to the chill of the morning mist.
Rising light of ambition,

Fallen From
I tell you I've no use
mind removed
ideas confuse

a sports team seen
consecutive relegations

A spirit casually approached, shat its parched load,
