Doing Time
On a dark and rainy afternoon
Whence I’d been sentenced to my bedroom
For my crime of failing to take care
To not be a pain in my mother’s derriere 
As it happens, I was a lad of six
Full of mischief and annoying...Read More

While living in San Diego’s urban sprawl,
I was often admonished when I’d say y’all.

I felt the crowds press while feeling ignored,
 and fled the west coast and moved inboard.

My five years there were productive and fun,
but...Read More

Do Not Disturb The Snow
Meeting the icy wind head-on 
The polar bear raised his head, 
Lifted his nose, 
Sniffed the air deep and long,
The right paw stomped the ground
Till it probably hurt 
That the snow did not like
And admonished the bear
'Why disturb me?'
It said,
'Your...Read More

Premium Member THE JOY OF READING SLOWLY
I am an avid reader now that I’m older, but not so long ago
back in school I was admonished because I read too slow.

For many years I did not read: no books…no prose…no verse
I’m reading again but I now see...Read More

Pen Sated

My auspicious Holiday Muse,
it has a hunger pang...
A pen which merrily sings of words,
joyously written in the heart
Honored friends and guests 
invited freely 
to a feast of thoughts

Etiquette tableware articulation
is succulently presented:

Romantic spooning
lovingly receives
a lip passion dipped
extra helping

Fork tongue behavior...Read More

ASCENT OF FAITH-ALTITUDE
Almighty God, the supreme Father above
assures me, through Scriptures’ precepts, His divine affection
affirming His marvelous vibrant love’s abundance
always at work to grant pardon absolutely
and assuage my guilt-caused anguish*
as I confess my iniquities, spiritually atrocious…
along my heart’s repentant acquiescence.

PRAYER PATIENT
Though taught 
to be prayerful:
“to pray
without ceasing”*
we are admonished
to tarry for answers…

taking heed 
not to become 
“prayer patients”
exclaiming this
to the Father above:
“Lord, give me
patience right now…”

for such is 
impatience
at work.

*1Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.

MY COOKING EXPOSURE
My home cooking zest verily exposed me 
to cornucopia’s functional essence
since we in the family were nourished
with blessings'* bounty…
Tasty delicacies sizzled with love  
when as early in the morning, coffee brewing 
would turn to sweet blends of fellowships.

Loosing lou sing the damn rumors
Loosing (lou sing) the damn rumors...

Torpedo style full speed ahead
keeping me in suspense,
what salacious gossip
gets browned, buttered, rolled
down the alley and bred
into unsavory tidbits,

these souffled ears dread
to hear hard boiled morsels
poached, scrambled, whipped
donning barren falsehoods
zeitgeist spouting dunderhead
trumpeting hex pence heave

LEAVING PATHS OF ARROGANCE
Having learned from principles of Scriptures
We’re admonished to leave the paths of arrogance*
Nourished along humility and meekness pastures
To reach-out others with God’s gracious extravagance.
 
Treading against haughtiness’ direction
We’re marching by the Holy Spirit’s command
Governed through heavenly wisdom’s unction
Surely complying to...Read More

To Love No More
I lifted you into my heart
But one arm was missing
As single wing and one handed
I carried you inside
All the while, you pointing at 
My lost absent limb…
You told me you’d love me
If I could find that one misplaced part
The part...Read More

BOUNCING UP
Pushing backward the awful negatives
I step ahead, bouncing thru God’s power
As admonished with service directives.
Gladly sharing His love with grace-shower.

I work well while my soul He does surround
Trusting His blessings for fruits’ arrival 
Having sown seeds...Read More

There are rules she said.
Let’s break them, said I.
She was horrified, shocked,
A military woman, due or die.
 
We cannot she admonished me.
It’s the way it has to be.
I was horrified and shocked,
She was my daughter, only three.

No print on hand-held screens can draw her in...
for only hard-bound, covered books are gems;
held close with love, absorbing through her eyes,
those magic words that fill her heart and mind.

At just months old, she trembled at their sight...

PILGRIMAGE OF GOD'S SERVANTS
Ascending toward triumph-pinnacles
They tread circumspectly along life’s race
Optimizing God’s wondrous love and grace
Overcoming temptation tentacles.

Trekking upward mountainous faith-venture
They’re replenished fully midst fatigue-bouts
To vanquish distracting doubts’ whereabouts
And prevail beyond weariness’ torture.

Pressing forward by Sovereign guidance
Defying fall and frustrations’ anguish
Serenely, they hope...Read More

GOD STILL WORKS IN ME
Reminded that God sees me groaning in pain
Whenever I languish in gloom, and in misery remain
Earnestly hoping for His miracle to gain...
Now, I triumph in Him* for working in me around His love’s domain

From the hospital room, ‘neath the thundering sky,
Beneath the thundering sky!?

A POEM MADE UP OF CLICHES

At Poetry Soup we're admonished
Never to use cliches
They provide us an extensive list
For the error of our ways

But one thing you can rely on
Is people just don't pay heed
Like a dog gnawing a ham bone

An old house with an old porch
Is a most miraculous thing.
Politics are settled, children admonished,
Babies shown off and growing up, 
Advice shared – we need more porches,
Fewer therapists, values taught, not anything goes. 
Where mothers wait for suppers to cook,
