Premium Member To Have and To Hold
Your beauty eloquently shines,
with effervescent hue.
An ushered in new day,
additional memories to accrue.

Moments swelled from passion,
can certainly overwhelm.
Always assuring my attention,
in a perfect magical realm.

Fairer beauty nowhere to be found,
witnessed by my own two eyes.
A constant and veracious attraction,
invariably never...Read More

Premium Member Essential Reading
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

Dancing in time, bringing in the heartfelt holiday 
Wafts of women in full traditional costume of Puerto Rico
Gyrating in the streets, teasing the crowd with their prowess
From old to young, they make their point in colorful garb.

They let me down

My Morning Rant
By Miracle Man

Seems weekly I awake to a new paradigm,
we’re legalizing “weed” so it’s no longer a crime.
Radical change came so quickly, I’m left agast,
and morality, it seems, is lost somewhere in the past.
But its a gateway drug...Read More

Capability of Collective Consciousness
The imagination was giddy with fervent anticipation

A beautifully comforting breeze

soothed the mind from every conceivable direction

while also invigorating the playfulness associated with imminent invention

Another day provides additional time

for the creation and nourishment of an idea

Another opportunity to relentlessly explore

Poetry of the Bible 20191229
There are lines we recall from literature
As in escaping "by the skin of my teeth"
That we owe to the bible, in this case, to Job
(not "job", a Biblical Book by that name, chapter 19)

Finding a House
Finding a house,
is the most difficult thing.
You find what you like,
or you get nothing !

You want a bedroom,
with a shower attached,
a kitchen of your own,
and your budget matched.

You want it close
to the university,
and to be free,
from the noise of the...Read More

Jumps at once

Frisky, gray squirrels scramble
Beneath a massive, old oak tree
Gathering the best acorns they see
Their fluffy tailed, lively damsels

Opossum wobble on short legs
From their laurel sheltered lairs
Toward the thickets where there’s
Vast bugs and spiders in their webs

Gentle, soft haired rabbits assemblage...Read More

Black Hills Legacy

In the vaults of the U.S. government sits
A cache of money gathering interest.
But money cannot buy the hearts of a people
In exchange for land and legacy
For breaking the Laramie Treaty.

Last Names
by Edmund Siejka

Whenever I meet someone
At a party, a restaurant or in line at a store
And the conversation turns to last names 
I respond politely
When they ask
What nationality is that?
The question strikes me as anachronistic
Like how old were you...Read More
