A Poem About My Dad
I’m trying to write a poem about my dad
Which is weird because all I want to say about him is the things he’d done bad.
Then there’s the whole problem with this rhyme scheme...
I’m not actually sure what I’m doing.

Premium Member FIRST LOVE an analysis
Dreams,desires,bitter so sweet
An adolescent trail trodden,
Engulfed by moods,melancholy and sudden;
Aches from a first love leaving,
Painful yet poignant;
Novel experience sadden,then abates
Then will gladden
As mellowed..anticipation awaits....Read More

Smiling recollections,
summer evening reflections, now
almost gone for new generations
while my venues of childhood musings
and adolescent anticipations
...near extinction.
I must concede my willingness to share
what they will never recall
     - the exhilaration 
when Dad would pronounce,
"We're going to...Read More

Premium Member Portraiture
Have you ever looked into
the eyes of a portraiture?
In these wells of the soul
lay the expressive depths
of the human spirit,
the pain and sorrow,
the hopes and dreams,
the love and the joy,
and peace and reconciliation.

On the picture boards
at wakes and funerals,
I peer...Read More

Premium Member Gadflies and HoneyBees
Where to begin
in the middle of cold and dark
winter's solstice,
healthy green life's time
of impeachment,

Where does this all rightfully
and sacredly left end?

These are expansive gadfly questions,
issues of complexly dipolar reason,
leftbrain dominant
either-or thinking
we are either thinking or feeling
rather than conscious of both,

Opera - Rouge
In my younger youth, this color was sort of appalling for me.  I did not fancy nails with decorations.  I was not raised around it.  Now I prefer to have black nails or some kind of warrior...Read More

Premium Member I Don't Miss London

I don’t miss the city,
the metropolis I once knew was built
on the edge of a never-never land.

I miss just this: a green half-acre, 
a cultivated fenced enclosure 
with a round bandstand; a Victorian structure
surrounded by a bed of carnations –...Read More

Premium Member Power Is Personal
So, is this personification
of political systems?
asked the organic ecologist.

Or politicization
of intimately
yet transcendently
secular and sacred
personal economic-nutritional analysis
of health-wealth trends?
asked the macrosystemic economist,
in his rather too long projecting way
of exploring means
and medians
and in-betweens.

And both?
asked the theologian
after listening to each as Other,

Premium Member That About A Face

Previously responsible concerning an adolescent resplendent facial hallmark,
Awarded to privileges and sanctioned embellishment favoring enhancement,
Over time, years chip away unnoticeably o'er worn breathless moments,

Taunt texture of an arduous youth evaporates in a whimsical hallucination,
Face delicately immersed in a penny-filled wishing...Read More

Not going to pretend it
I've been feeling rejected
And disrespected
Nothing I said and did
Was effective
Time I take a sedative
Or maybe 10 of them

Was fine one minute then out the next second
THC, pharmaceuticals and alcohol ingested
For the pain, but it doesn't end...Read More

Premium Member Play Grownup Games

If I have the time to play grownup games 
it isn't fair to quibble if I lose.
For though the rules are designed to confuse
smoldering embers don't equate to flames.

Innocence is a precursor for pain
like a moth I'm attracted by your...Read More

Where do we think all this economic and politically empowering
organically luscious imagination
and ecologically exegetical orthopraxis

George Lakoff speaks of strictly straight stern paternalistic God the Universalist Fathers,
vertically Winning over an otherwise Loser, yet highly competitive, ecopolitical world

When I was a little kid
I used to wonder what the world would be like,
I never counted the possibility
That I would see a head on a spike.

As I looked at the world 
I saw an array of opportunities,
But I disregarded...Read More

Premium Member Fiftieth Reunion Reflections
Thinking back on my all White
but One,
all Right
but One,
classroom learning experience,

I can see why
many of my straight white male classmates,
especially those with early varsity team excellence
and above average grade point systems
tipping toward future capital-valued employment
might feel disappointed,
sometimes angry,
about what feels...Read More

Selectively Secret

Secrets for all their guise
tremble in dark
in shadows protection
yet still feel the penumbras chill
concealed away in their selective box
never to pry open
and tell the truth

As by some adolescent fear
there quaking in its boots
should rebuke then utter 
death deal its condemnation

Premium Member Compromise
(in the early sixties)
Written: by Miracle Man

Oft times I’ve faced those,
consumed with rage.
Sometimes I allowed myself,
to enter into that stage.

Compromising then,
 was such a massive load.
I thought “My way or the highway,
and you can pick the road”.

In those adolescent years,

Premium Member Praising EcoFeminist Climates
Economically comfortable civilians,
without militarized propaganda indoctrination,
without physical neglect or abuse experience,
without religious blame and shame intimidation,
may sustainably recognize themselves as safe,
while stressed about why they do not matter,
do not feel needed
or even uniquely loved and wanted.

We are not born this...Read More

Premium Member Mr and Mrs Spratt
My father,
who tolerated no fat,
predicted I would do nothing right
or good,
much less healthy,
in my lifetime.

My mother,
absorbing nothing too mean or lean,
felt I could do nothing wrong
so probably later as wellness

Neither my father,
nor I
seemed particularly surprised
when I rose and fell
somewhere in-between

Who are you most longing to become?

How we answer this is different for an ancient rooted tree
than for a recent immigrant
searching for a niche of stable self-sufficiency.

Who we already have become together
feels more important to thriving groves of WiseElders
