Premium Member 3 BAGS OF MAGIC
Have you ever noticed when people help each other out
when they show compassion…when they show they care
when they do something nice for one another
there’s a kind of magic in the air.

Faced with the coronavirus…a virus the world can no longer...Read More

Premium Member Reflection On An Aging Nomad
I finally finished retiring four years ago,
a process that started in my mid-fifties
due to late adopting kids with special needs,
including needs for me to be home
to personally walk them on,
harness them in,
and wheel them back off, their diverse buses
and robotic...Read More

“So tell me…what’s adopting like? Seems a little risky - picking out your children from the local lost and found! 
Suppose the kid’s a ‘loser.’ Do they let you bring ‘em back? Can you - if...Read More

I see free verse as lots of coloured thread,
the basis of a fabric not quite knit.
The yarn is there but you may need to search
among the many strands of different length.

In rhyming verse the parts all know their place
which makes...Read More

Premium Member Here It Comes Again
Another Christmas approaches,
inevitably,
inexorably,
seeming,
at least to me,
like an unwanted visit
from an unloved uncle,
a boring old man,
irrelevant,
inconvenient,
a pathetic old performer
past his prime,
dead, but he won't lie down:
the same old songs,
same old false jollity,
same old celebration -
celebrating WHAT?
nominally, and, I suspect,
inaccurately,
the birth of...Read More

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Maja_desnuda#/media/File:Goya_Maja_naga2.jpg







The Prado in Madrid
a cool tent of marble
set back from the Retiro Park.

I have come
to see the gypsy girl.
Goya painted her twice.
Maja Desnuda is her soul
the other, the clothed version,
only a mannequin.

She is not shy,
though she reclines naively
adopting a position

Premium Member Bravery And Tragedy


In their epic struggle for freedom
thousands of South Africans
lost their lives in the anti-apartheid movement.
Ordinary people stood shoulder to shoulder,
against tyranny and bigotry,
and it cost them dearly.
The hopes of a nation fueled their zest
to shuck the yoke of oppression,
and gain...Read More

Our Troubles

Life is a continuous journey beset with troubles
So long we live in this universe,
Trouble becomes part and parcel of human experience 
Life swings like a pendulum, 
One moment swings towards favourable conditions;
That brings name,fame,gain,praises and merriment;
At another moment,unfavourable conditions curse,
Welcoming...Read More

My Soul IQ, in general, is fine,
but nowhere near as high as that of souls
who live a life as though it is divine -
humanitarians with lofty goals
like Ghandi and the many others who
affect great changes in society.
I think of common...Read More

Kenneth Cloke
historically outlines the widening and deepening
and merging and submerging
of elite/non-elite
publicized/privatized ego/eco-politicians.

Earth's perennial health/pathology contests
lie between LeftYang domination
over-powering RightYin suppression;

Slowly at matriarchal pre-historic first,
then, now, much more quickly
and Western invasively,

From slave-owner v slave,
to kleptocratic aristocracy v non-elite laborers,
serfs paying homage...Read More

Blessings in disguise
This man comes off tough.
Doesn't show much love.
But truth be told
It's all a front.

His childhood, he dares not to repeat.
He often woke alone, with nothing to eat.

He puts his hand, on his mother's shoulder.
She passed out from, an everyday hangover.

I could change my mind
about adopting you
no more than change my heart's content
about what is healthy

and what lies somewhat uneasily in-between

When winter months become morose
And everything around is blue and froze
Gets disheartening even for the eskimos
Their morale starts to dwindle and decompose

They tread most lightly on cautious tippytoes
For fear their neighbors will become bellicose
They bite their tongue rather than use...Read More

insidious ways
We are surreptitiously taught

Insidious ways

By a system that is twisted, flawed and that's lost its way

We are taught to respect it without thought or question

So many do exactly that without factual digestion

This system teaches more about war than peace

Rarely do I encounter a father who has loved so much,
by adopting a son, 
and calling him his own.
A lifetime of responsibility, 
taken on for the happiness of another.
Between this father and son,
I've witnessed a special bond,
communication without words.
