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

Ocean mind
Ocean mind

Consider the mind like an ocean kind,
the depth and other side are invisible to the lights of mind.
The ocean creates, sustains and recycles,
accumulates and provides fresh water as natural miracles.
Thoughts are like this water, we need to survive,

I was never raised for it
Circumstances lead me to be
I was not meant for it
But I had to be

Awareness was crucial
Readiness was the key
Adaptability was my nickname
Wisdom was essential

Tears were shed
Pain was endured
Togetherness was created
Loyalty was born

Strength was my calling
Fitness...Read More

Affability and Amiability in Your Agility
Wear no long face
When storms rage in your space
Flying and crying you out of place 

If you do
Like a cow you’ll moo
Shooting and hooting at the crew

You claim to train
With foibles you can’t restrain
With lower standards you strain

In muscles, corpuscles...Read More

Your Worthlessness and Emptiness Irk
Widen your perspective and glide beyond and above the pride
Welling up in your chest, embarking on the sparkling quest
To eliminate and waste opportunities to progress as you ride
A high horse, assuming you taste victory in every vital test 

You undergo...Read More

Coz you either out or in

Everything is depicted from a seed planted in the ground
Flourished to adapt in weather all around

Unrealized of the storms in which lies ahead
Rooted ability its roots to spread 
Despite drought leaving wilted leaves
Upon rain drench new leaves conceived

Learning to embrace me.
From my receding hairline
to the scar I received
when I was three.
My adaptability
and changing
For the things I keep
under lock and key
and the sentiments
I wish to say
but underscore them
in silent ways
The way I let moments slip 
into tomorrow

The world's been in the dumpster forever
An intolerable state of affairs
Isn't it about time we changed our ways
It's badly in need of repairs

Let's start a pact to end our disputes
Some think it's beyond possibility
Need somebody to step up to the...Read More

The loving beauty of our star in sunset is expressed
The majestic mountains expanding past horizon trees and beaches that are by sea caressed 
All by the divine power behind the sun are blessed

Premium Member When Love Fails Reason -
Reason is a tool,
it can not escape the boundries of calculation as oxygen departs from blood,
logic operates on the body of algorhythems thumping along trails of faceless fates,
reason is a scavenger of possibilities matured into conclusions born from imagination,

Dripping Moon
The moon dripped like wax through 
the canopy of the pines, light and 
shadow were scattered across the
ground like playing cards.
The air was still, the scent of danger
there but difficult to locate, yet the 
nostrils still twitched in mistrust.

Boulder Morning
Here in my haven, the Flat Irons in full view
A benefit to the loss of leaves as winter ensues.
To my left is the bustle of a town in motion.
Before me, fire blazes, warming chill’s potion.

Dragonfly dances in her coppery cloud...Read More
