Melting stone-hearted bullies causing scare
By her compassion, promoting...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

To meet the real French

Adoption Stranger Abuse
I'm doubled over in a crunch
Like my stomach felt a punch
When I heard something so sad
I felt hurt and really bad
When a stranger looked my way
About to ruin my great day
Spouting out racist remarks
Putting me in such a shock

WE PRAISE YOU, LORD, FOR PROVIDING US THE BEST
We praise You, Lord, for providing us the best gift*
Such is everlasting life which does our souls uplift
With Your offered reconciliation midst sin-enmity’s rift
Making us heaven-bound, and from hell’s flames, adrift.

A car rolls into a soundless night,
Its light sends a bursting view of overhanging growth,
In a microcosm succession of descending seconds,
Pruned for a snapshot temporal existence,
Till all is rendered back to the void of night.

Sounds of rolling wake the void,

Fish

A half dozen, small fins…
bought from the pet shop. 
Now swimming free in an ocean,
of rock, plastic flowers, and artsy things…
“All” part of the bigger picture. 

I fed you daily, I feed you still. 
There are less of you, but...Read More

And let Attorney General abscond the plan
