Canada Jays

Four seasons ’round Canada jays are found,
Perched in tree branches safe and sound;
Resting after flying throughout the North,
In the Canadian boreal forests.
Heard and not seen unless it’s their intention,
To disturb the silence, making known their presence
By confronting intruders in...Read More

Three-hundred-and-sixty-five children he had

That he left orphans and all of them were sad

The new year comes with vigor and lots of joy

Adapts the orphans, in his service to employ!

A father of six he was in his early forties,
struck by cancer
toiling to provide for his children 
no property
no land
no animals 
but a loyal old donkey 
that uncomplainingly was carrying from a distance
the heavy loads of wood and water
because there...Read More

Premium Member Drink Deeply of This Cup, Dear Friend
Is just Love an oasis in ‘desert of self’
Where my talents seem fossilized bones with no life?
I bless remnants of forebears (expired, long past prime)
That caress life, the breeze that cools brow, whose moist breath,
Does suggest some direction, moves me...Read More

Melancholy drifts while in paradise,
heart of the wind starts fading, there's no sound
Ocean reflects, the distance in your eyes
being light years away, escape is found

Captivated are the waves, calm of night
echo in the salty air--   ecstasy
Beyond its harmony,...Read More

Traditional Poetry And A New Age Poetry
Many a poet I know a fool
acting like they know-it-all
many a poet I know a tool
acting like "Mr Poet-all" 
unknowingly showing me 
their knowledge of poetry
has boundaries surrounding
ideas rebounding around 
their impounded grounds 
only seeing the same repeatedly 
nothing new...Read More

Premium Member In My Father's Hands
A piece of waiting clay adapts
To a sculptor's finite stroke,
Infants heads were shaped by hands
Of older thinking folk.

Eight times a molder in his chair,
A newborn child held near.
Tiny heads-so softly stroked,
By my father's hands so dear.

A memory like yesterday,
Though ...Read More

Arcs And Angles
Is randomness designed,
  can the dice roll more defined

Is entropy a map,
  less complex as time adapts

Can ignorance be renamed,
  as a home for knowledge gained

Can the circle then be squared

Quest for God
From the beginning, people have asked themselves,
how God came into being or how God creates from nothing?
The God seekers are advancing ethical axioms
and truth is withstanding the test of experience.
Human mind is made out for reason and truth.
Reason gives us...Read More

A quintessential graven image
A bunkum to this present age
Destructive and repulsive
Crisps grips with hands sieve
Pismal dismal for this mar,this mar.
Dictative,will never mind your scars
Disgraces all graces with one face.
Defaces characters in different jiff phases.
Addiction is perdition
It disrespects all traditions

The Twelfth Principle

Cooperatively adopt
and responsively adapt
for creolizing acclimation,
best climate and landscape health practices.

The U.S. today
reweaves two points of national nurturing departure,
both taught in schools
and history books
and multicultural sciences
and scents
and sounds.

here in post-millennial enculturing lands,

Humans Must Be Crazy
Our race against extinction.
We all come from the same cradle.
Though we think ourselves mature.
Our childish and petty ways are truly obscene.
We are products of our environment, fine tuned
to fit the scene. Some are black with kinky hair
designed to mitigate the...Read More

LOVE is like a figure of speech
It adds beauty to life
It inspires us to beat strife
It gives colors to sight
It expresses feelings tight.

It has its perfect timing
To beautify your surrounding 
It appears unexpectedly
Yet disappears  inevitably....Read More

Embark on the journey out of the dark

With the use of visions...Read More

Your Audience My Fear

these cascades of shapes and shades are typically a waste,

you brace for the impact but you usually faint.

Fighting the Tormented Illness
Her stillness adapts to the realness. 
Humble on top of greatness
Struck by an obsessed illness
Caught in a pain, rendered by weakness
Pleading for forgiveness

Reality was never bought, yet always taking
She had remembered her forsaking
Sick and now steady shaking
The ill-gotten syndrome is...Read More

Leaking gaping wounds
Coughing fur balls...Read More
